We’ve got an iMX6 on a iXora carrier. We used the easy install to get LXDE installed and verified that all the HW is working.
We then downloaded the Toradex referenced QNX BSP (bsp-nxp-mx6q-sabresmart) and used the instructions provided by Blackberry to prep a µSD card and loaded the BSP onto the card.
- used dd to copy the ifs-mx6q-sabresmart.bin file to offset 1024 of the disk.
- mounted the disk
- used dd to copy the ipl-mx6q-sabresmart.bin file to /dev/sdb1/qnx-ifs
Using the serial cables provided in the carrier board accessory kit, we connected the serial adaptor cable to X22 on the iXora and used the provided null modem cable to connect to a PC w/ a terminal app running.
We then put the µSD card in the carrier board, rebooted into u-boot and then issued the following commands:
mmc list # which showed us that the SD card was slot 1
mmc dev 1 # choose slot 1
fatload mmc 1:1 0x10800000 qnx-ifs # load the files slot 1, device 1( the µSD)
19494264 bytes read in 957 ms (19.4 MiB/s) # files loaded
Then, per the QNX provided instructions sent the following command
- go 0x10800000
We get the following back
- Starting application at 0x10800000 …
and nothing else.
There is an easyinstaller coming for QNX that would likely solve this, but we need to get this running in the near term so any pointers on what we are doing wrong with u-boot would be greatly appreciated
