  • Looks very complete. The board appears to get an address from the DHCP server. So we assume that the network is good. TFTP is the first problem. NFS is not in the picture yet. As a test, try TFTP'ing the uImage file from another machine on the network.

    Maybe try each command in the tftp_nfs_boot line one at a time interactively. I think the command "dhcp ${bootfile}" should be just "dhcp" but it shouldn't matter.

  • I can tftp from another host with no problem.

    I will try the tftp_nfs_boot line next

  • OK ran tftp_nfs_boot line by line.

    Still not getting past the tftp problem.

  • By all appearances, you've got everything lined up. Usually the 'T' timeouts are due to either network is down, or TFTP server is own or TFTP server is blocked by firewall. Tests would indicated none of those are occurring. Unless the DHCP is a false positive and the network is not really up. Double check that DHCP is setting up ipaddr, netmask, etc.

    setenv autoload no
    setenv ipaddr
    setenv filesize
    dhcp
    printenv ipaddr
    printenv serverip
    ping 192.168.7.1
    tftp 0x82000000 uImage-am335x-evm.bin
    printenv filesize

    Any possibility that there is somebody else with the address 192.168.7.2? Maybe reconfigure your DHCP to serve a different address or setenv it in U-Boot instead of using dhcp.

    Real puzzle you got there. That's all I got.

    No one else is on this network. It is my Virtual network.

    I turned off the firewall.

    crupib@beagle-host:/tftpboot$ sudo ufw status
    Status: inactive


    Crazy huh?

    What is printenv filesize?

  • bridging turned on in your virtual session?

  • Norman,

    Thanks for all your help.

    It is working.

    2 things:

    1. xinetd.d/tftp was wrong. I had a typo on the server_args line.

       I had a -s in front of the /tftpboot. It does not work on ubuntu.

      I also had to shutdown my wireless network. TFTP was going back the wrong way.

    Again thanks for all your help.

    Consider the matter closed.
