Problems booting Linux on custom P4040 / P4080 -based board

Question asked by Alexander Barangan on Jan 31, 2012
Latest reply on Aug 15, 2013 by Scott Wood

Hello,

 

I'm currently in the process of bringing up a custom board containing a P4040 processor.  I have U-boot running and can communicate with it via terminal and ethernet (via on-board Marvell PHYs).  All of my software is based on the latest Freescale BSP.  I'm currently having a hard time getting Linux to completely boot successfully.  Near the end of the terminal output (just before the system halts) the output looks like garbled data (as shown below.)  Interestingly, this garbled output is also witnessed when running this same code on the P4080DS.  The difference, however, is that after a series of output like this, the Linux login prompt appears.  On my system, it does not and the system just hangs leaving me wondering what the last attempted initialization was.  Any suggestion on how to debug this problem is greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Alex
