wdenk committed
28 29 30 31
Embedded boards based on PowerPC, ARM, MIPS and several other
processors, which can be installed in a boot ROM and used to
initialize and test the hardware or to download and run application
code.

The development of U-Boot is closely related to Linux: some parts of
34 35
the source code originate in the Linux source tree, we have some
header files in common, and special provision has been made to

36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49
support booting of Linux images.

Some attention has been paid to make this software easily
configurable and extendable. For instance, all monitor commands are
implemented with the same call interface, so that it's very easy to
add new commands. Also, instead of permanently adding rarely used
code (for instance hardware test utilities) to the monitor, you can
load and run it dynamically.


Status:
=======

In general, all boards for which a configuration option exists in the
50
Makefile have been tested to some extent and can be considered

"working". In fact, many of them are used in production systems.

in source files etc.). Example:

	This is the README file for the U-Boot project.

File names etc. shall be based on the string "u-boot". Examples:

	include/asm-ppc/u-boot.h

	#include <asm/u-boot.h>

Variable names, preprocessor constants etc. shall be either based on

Versioning:
===========

U-Boot uses a 3 level version number containing a version, a
sub-version, and a patchlevel: "U-Boot-2.34.5" means version "2",
sub-version "34", and patchlevel "4".

The patchlevel is used to indicate certain stages of development
between released versions, i. e. officially released versions of
U-Boot will always have a patchlevel of "0".

Software Configuration:
=======================

Configuration is usually done using C preprocessor defines; the
rationale behind that is to avoid dead code whenever possible.

There are two classes of configuration variables:

* Configuration _OPTIONS_:
  These are selectable by the user and have names beginning with
  "CONFIG_".

* Configuration _SETTINGS_:
  These depend on the hardware etc. and should not be meddled with if
  you don't know what you're doing; they have names beginning with
  "CFG_".

Later we will add a configuration tool - probably similar to or even
identical to what's used for the Linux kernel. Right now, we have to
do the configuration by hand, which means creating some symbolic
links and editing some configuration files. We use the TQM8xxL boards
as an example here.


Selection of Processor Architecture and Board Type:
---------------------------------------------------

For all supported boards there are ready-to-use default
configurations available; just type "make <board_name>_config".

Example: For a TQM823L module type:

	cd u-boot
	make TQM823L_config

For the Cogent platform, you need to specify the cpu type as well;
e.g. "make cogent_mpc8xx_config". And also configure the cogent
directory according to the instructions in cogent/README.


Configuration Options:
----------------------

Configuration depends on the combination of board and CPU type; all
such information is kept in a configuration file
"include/configs/<board_name>.h".

Example: For a TQM823L module, all configuration settings are in
"include/configs/TQM823L.h".

221 222 223 224 225
Many of the options are named exactly as the corresponding Linux
kernel configuration options. The intention is to make it easier to
build a config tool - later.

		CONFIG_CLOCKS_IN_MHZ

		U-Boot stores all clock information in Hz
		internally. For binary compatibility with older Linux
		kernels (which expect the clocks passed in the

		"clocks_in_mhz" can be defined so that U-Boot
		converts clock data to MHZ before passing it to the
		Linux kernel.
		When CONFIG_CLOCKS_IN_MHZ is defined, a definition of
		"clocks_in_mhz=1" is  automatically  included  in  the

		entering interactive mode.

		This feature is especially useful when "preboot" is

- Ethernet address:
		CONFIG_ETHADDR
		CONFIG_ETH2ADDR
		CONFIG_ETH3ADDR

		Define a default value for ethernet address to use

		is not determined automatically.

- IP address:
		CONFIG_IPADDR

		Define a default value for the IP address to use for
		the default ethernet interface, in case this is not

- Server IP address:
		CONFIG_SERVERIP

		Defines a default value for theIP address of a TFTP
		server to contact when using the "tftboot" command.

- BOOTP Recovery Mode:
		CONFIG_BOOTP_RANDOM_DELAY

		If you have many targets in a network that try to
		boot using BOOTP, you may want to avoid that all
		systems send out BOOTP requests at precisely the same
		moment (which would happen for instance at recovery
		from a power failure, when all systems will try to

		CONFIG_BOOTP_RANDOM_DELAY causes a random delay to be
		inserted before sending out BOOTP requests. The
		following delays are insterted then:

		1st BOOTP request:	delay 0 ... 1 sec
		2nd BOOTP request:	delay 0 ... 2 sec
		3rd BOOTP request:	delay 0 ... 4 sec

- DHCP Advanced Options:
		CONFIG_BOOTP_MASK

		You can fine tune the DHCP functionality by adding
		these flags to the CONFIG_BOOTP_MASK define:

		CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS2 - If a DHCP client requests the DNS
		serverip from a DHCP server, it is possible that more
		than one DNS serverip is offered to the client.
		If CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS2 is enabled, the secondary DNS
		serverip will be stored in the additional environment
		variable "dnsip2". The first DNS serverip is always
		stored in the variable "dnsip", when CONFIG_BOOTP_DNS
		is added to the CONFIG_BOOTP_MASK.

		CONFIG_BOOTP_SEND_HOSTNAME - Some DHCP servers are capable
		to do a dynamic update of a DNS server. To do this, they
		need the hostname of the DHCP requester.
		If CONFIG_BOOP_SEND_HOSTNAME is added to the
		CONFIG_BOOTP_MASK, the content of the "hostname"
		environment variable is passed as option 12 to
		the DHCP server.

		CONFIG_CDP_DEVICE_ID_PREFIX

		A two character string which is prefixed to the MAC address
		of the device.

		CONFIG_CDP_PORT_ID

		the port. Normally is set to "eth%d" which sets
		eth0 for the first ethernet, eth1 for the second etc.

		CONFIG_CDP_CAPABILITIES

		A 32bit integer which indicates the device capabilities;
		0x00000010 for a normal host which does not forwards.

		CONFIG_CDP_VERSION

- Status LED:	CONFIG_STATUS_LED

		Several configurations allow to display the current
		status using a LED. For instance, the LED will blink
		fast while running U-Boot code, stop blinking as
		soon as a reply to a BOOTP request was received, and
		start blinking slow once the Linux kernel is running
		(supported by a status LED driver in the Linux
		kernel). Defining CONFIG_STATUS_LED enables this
		feature in U-Boot.

- CAN Support:	CONFIG_CAN_DRIVER

		Defining CONFIG_CAN_DRIVER enables CAN driver support
		on those systems that support this (optional)
		feature, like the TQM8xxL modules.

- I2C Support:	CONFIG_HARD_I2C | CONFIG_SOFT_I2C

		In both cases you will need to define CFG_I2C_SPEED

1155 1156 1157
		Now, the u-boot i2c code for the mpc8xx (cpu/mpc8xx/i2c.c)
		sets the cpu up as a master node and so its address should
		therefore be cleared to 0 (See, eg, MPC823e User's Manual
1158
		p.16-473). So, set CFG_I2C_SLAVE to 0.

		Alternatively, if you #define _both_ CONFIG_ETHADDR

		read-only.]

- Protected RAM:
		CONFIG_PRAM

		Define this variable to enable the reservation of
		"protected RAM", i. e. RAM which is not overwritten
		by U-Boot. Define CONFIG_PRAM to hold the number of
		kB you want to reserve for pRAM. You can overwrite
		this default value by defining an environment
		variable "pram" to the number of kB you want to
		reserve. Note that the board info structure will
		still show the full amount of RAM. If pRAM is
		reserved, a new environment variable "mem" will
		automatically be defined to hold the amount of
		remaining RAM in a form that can be passed as boot
		argument to Linux, for instance like that:

			setenv bootargs ... mem=\$(mem)
			saveenv

		This way you can tell Linux not to use this memory,
		either, which results in a memory region that will
		not be affected by reboots.

		*WARNING* If your board configuration uses automatic
		detection of the RAM size, you must make sure that
		this memory test is non-destructive. So far, the
		following board configurations are known to be
		"pRAM-clean":

			ETX094, IVMS8, IVML24, SPD8xx, TQM8xxL,
			HERMES, IP860, RPXlite, LWMON, LANTEC,
			PCU_E, FLAGADM, TQM8260

- Error Recovery:
		CONFIG_PANIC_HANG

		Define this variable to stop the system in case of a
		fatal error, so that you have to reset it manually.
		This is probably NOT a good idea for an embedded
		system where you want to system to reboot
		automatically as fast as possible, but it may be
		useful during development since you can try to debug
		the conditions that lead to the situation.

		CONFIG_NET_RETRY_COUNT

1394 1395 1396 1397
		This variable defines the number of retries for
		network operations like ARP, RARP, TFTP, or BOOTP
		before giving up the operation. If not defined, a
		default value of 5 is used.

		CFG_HUSH_PARSER

		Define this variable to enable the "hush" shell (from
		Busybox) as command line interpreter, thus enabling
		powerful command line syntax like
		if...then...else...fi conditionals or `&&' and '||'
		constructs ("shell scripts").

		If undefined, you get the old, much simpler behaviour
		with a somewhat smaller memory footprint.


		CFG_PROMPT_HUSH_PS2

		This defines the secondary prompt string, which is
		printed when the command interpreter needs more input
		to complete a command. Usually "> ".

		In the current implementation, the local variables
		space and global environment variables space are
		separated. Local variables are those you define by
		simply typing `name=value'. To access a local
		variable later on, you have write `$name' or
		`${name}'; to execute the contents of a variable
		directly type `$name' at the command prompt.

1432 1433 1434 1435
		Global environment variables are those you use
		setenv/printenv to work with. To run a command stored
		in such a variable, you need to use the run command,
		and you must not use the '$' sign to access them.

		To store commands and special characters in a
		variable, please use double quotation marks
		surrounding the whole text of the variable, instead
		of the backslashes before semicolons and special
		symbols.

- Default Environment:

1444 1445
		CONFIG_EXTRA_ENV_SETTINGS

1446 1447
		Define this to contain any number of null terminated
		strings (variable = value pairs) that will be part of
wdenk's avatar
wdenk committed
1448
		the default environment compiled into the boot image.
1449

1450 1451
		For example, place something like this in your
		board's config file:

wdenk committed
1452 1453 1454 1455 1456

		#define CONFIG_EXTRA_ENV_SETTINGS \
			"myvar1=value1\0" \
			"myvar2=value2\0"

1457 1458 1459 1460
		Warning: This method is based on knowledge about the
		internal format how the environment is stored by the
		U-Boot code. This is NOT an official, exported
		interface! Although it is unlikely that this format

1461
		will change soon, there is no guarantee either.

		You better know what you are doing here.

1464 1465 1466 1467
		Note: overly (ab)use of the default environment is
		discouraged. Make sure to check other ways to preset
		the environment like the autoscript function or the
		boot command first.

- SystemACE Support:
		CONFIG_SYSTEMACE

		Adding this option adds support for Xilinx SystemACE
		chips attached via some sort of local bus. The address
		of the chip must alsh be defined in the
		CFG_SYSTEMACE_BASE macro. For example:

		#define CONFIG_SYSTEMACE
		#define CFG_SYSTEMACE_BASE 0xf0000000

		When SystemACE support is added, the "ace" device type
		becomes available to the fat commands, i.e. fatls.

1491 1492
		CONFIG_SHOW_BOOT_PROGRESS

1493 1494 1495 1496 1497 1498
		Defining this option allows to add some board-
		specific code (calling a user-provided function
		"show_boot_progress(int)") that enables you to show
		the system's boot progress on some display (for
		example, some LED's) on your board. At the moment,
		the following checkpoints are implemented:
