Why are we still using old x-loader - we should be using SPL
MLO from u-boot master - it works straight on beagleXM.
Our last tests with SPL and latest u-boot were unsuccessful!
And we have to port ext2 support to it because we have no FAT
Quote from an internal query I just did: "There shouldn't be
case where xM has memory that X-Loader works for that SPL did
The issue was that with SPL and proper upstream u-boot from ~fall
last year, my beagleboard xm was unstable. It constantly crashed.
So I reverted back to the old x-loader booting, as that kept things
If you can try current U-Boot or provide more details about the
instability I'd appreciate it.
There _may_ be a UART issue that needs
And of course if they used mainline they could pretty easily do
RAW for SPL/U-Boot.img and then do everything else with ext2/3/4
and ignore FAT.
The "default" that we stuck with so far (though we can certainly
change that) is to keep u-boot as a file in ext2, so that it can
easily be updated. That maybe wasn't the most clever decision and
going with raw is the way to go, but it's what we do today.
That's fine and a decent idea. I'd be happy to review patches to make
this a clean option in SPL, even. A plus of moving to mainline would
be that ext4 is supported now too.
