Tutorial: Install OpenBSD on ROCK64 media board
#21
I have updated the tutorial for OpenBSD 6.7.

https://github.com/krjdev/rock64_openbsd

Biggest change:
- add official solution to install OpenBSD (Using idbloader.img and u-boot.itb).

Please can somebody proof-read my tutorial?

EDIT:
I have also build idbloader.img and u-boot.itb.

Used U-Boot version:

Code:
$ git-describe
v2020.07-rc2-194-gb0b13f4114
$


Used version ATF version:

Code:
$ git-describe
v2.3-55-gf1a1653ce
$

The images can be found here:

Hi,

I have updated the tutorial for OpenBSD 6.8 and there another fixes:
- Update to U-Boot v2021.01
- Add a U-Boot script for enabling one of the USB-port (This is a workaround as soon as the OpenBSD developers fix this issue.)
- The steps should be correct yet. The device-tree file has been overwritten by the OpenBSD Installer. Now the step is after installing OpenBSD.
- Fix wrong wiring image (USB-UART-TTL).

Just also added a few (initial) BASH scripts for downloading GCC for AArch64 from the ARM homepage, build ARM Trusted Firmware and build U-Boot. You can skip the first steps in the tutorial with these scripts. Smile 

I have tested the BASH scripts. They works on my system (openSUSE Leap 15.2), but if they fails on your systems, please give a feedback.

Is there something I can do to fix the power off not working issue? Just installed OpenBSD 6.9 onto my Rock64 v3, only bump is 'shutdown -p now' doesn't work as expected, 'reboot' works fine though.

Edit: BTW, the other using Rock64 v2 board is working fine with 'shutdown -p now' though, which has been upgraded from 6.8.

halt -p
is what I usually use.  I think that worked under OpenBSD too.

If you don't have /sbin in your path neither will work because that's where they are.  In Debian shutdown is a symlink to /bin/systemctl, so is halt.  /sbin isn't in some non-root paths I think, but you can add it.

I mean the 'shutdown -p now' did work just the board didn't really poweroff at all, the ethernet port led to the switch is still on and the indicators at the rear are on.

@krjdev,
Thanks for updating your tutorial. Now I am using your u-boot binary installing OpenBSD 6.9, hope this time the poweroff issue will disappear.

BTW, for an already installed disk, is there a way to update u-boot without affecting a working os?

Sorry, for my late response.

Of course. Simple build U-Boot and copy the two files (idbloader.img and u-boot.itb) to SD/MMC card where OpenBSD is installed:

Code:
dd if=/path/to/idbloader.img of=/dev/sd0c bs=512 seek=64 conv=sync

Code:
dd if=/path/to/u-boot.itb of=/dev/sd0c bs=512 seek=16384 conv=sync
