load 2nd stage u-boot.bin over uart not sending
I've got a ti8148 evm, and I want to test out the UART booting. Everything worked perfectly up until the part where I have to load the 2nd stage u-boot over serial from the u-boot-min prompt. I'm using minicom, instead of teraterm. I don't have a windows machine around, and even if I did, I don't want to have to deal with one just to get a serial terminal.
here is my terminal log:
<<turn on evm>>
U-Boot 2010.06 (Apr 17 2012 - 18:08:51) TI8148-GP rev 2.1 ARM clk: 600MHz DDR clk: 400MHz DRAM: 2 GiB Using default environment The 2nd stage U-Boot will now be auto-loaded Please do not interrupt the countdown till TI8148_EVM prompt if 2nd stage is already flashed Hit any key to stop autoboot: 0 TI-MIN#loadb 0x81000000 ## Ready for binary (kermit) download to 0x81000000 at 115200 bps... <<send u-boot.bin (kermit)>>
I've never used minicom to send files before, so I suspect I could be messing up with minicom. Anybody have success with a linux terminal program and uart booting?
You should use loady, instead of loadb:
