Description Niels de Vos 2013-10-19 13:25:17 UTC
Created attachment 813990 [details] Add a default menu to u-boot, which executes the default 'bootcmd' command/script Description of problem: On my Wandboard DualLite the u-boot.imx version shows a menu and enters the commandline after a short timeout. It is needed to execute the 'boot' command to start extlinux which shows the selection of kernels installed. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): uboot-wandboard_dl-2013.10-0.5.rc4.fc20.armv7hl How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. dd the u-boot.imx to the sd-card # dd if=/usr/share/uboot-imx6dl/u-boot.imx of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=512 seek=2 2. boot from the sd-card Actual results: U-boot enters the commandline and waits for user input. Expected results: U-boot starts extlinux, which boots the kernel after a timeout. Additional info: * I've tested the attached patch, and this works fine for me. * The default bootcmd has been patched in the Fedora package, there is no patch in upstream needed. * This might be an issue on other boards as well, but I am not able to test that.

Proposing as a blocker as i think it makes for a better user experience and violates the the following criteria, Expected installed system boot behavior A system installed without a graphical package set must boot to a working login prompt without any unintended user intervention, and all virtual consoles intended to provide a working login prompt must do so.

According to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/ARM/Supported_Platforms : "Wandboard yes Quad works, dual and solo untested" kinda doesn't gel with considering bugs in DualLite to be blockers?

Discussed this in 2013-10-21 Blocker Review Meeting . Rejected as a blocker issue as it does not appear to be serious enough to merit that status, but accepted as a freeze exception issue as it will improve the experience on wandboard systems and looks to be a safe fix  http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-10-21/
