Fienix - Problem creating USB stick for X5000

Post by tlgrooms »

New AmigaOne X5000 user. Downloaded the image on my Fedora Linux box. Decompressed it and wrote the image to a USB stick using DD,
dd if=/home/tim/fienix-soar_3.0-20200426.img of=/dev/sdc

It seems to always write OK but I am getting the following error.
Unable to mount FIENIX-DISK Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc2 missing codepage or helper program, or other error.

I can access the FIENIX-BOOT partition ok. I have downloaded the image several times and tried writing several different times as well but keep getting the same thing. I have also tried different usb sticks so I know it's not the memory stick.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd really like to get this going on my X5000.
Thanks.

Hi,

Do you have resized the second partition to the max of the USB stick with Gparted ?
it is mandatory

But i remeber that i have had this kind of issue using linux to build the USB.

Now i use USB image tool for windows and it works

Right now I have issue after i cannot boot (see the other thread) i don't why all seem to be ok ...

No, have not resized the second partition. Didn't think i was that far along. Thought I had to be able to mount the second partition before I could resize it.

I have tried using the windows tool as well and the exact same thing happens when i put it in a Linux box. Can't mount the FIENIX-DISK partition.

Have you tried to boot from the USB stick?

I have followed these instructions on the X5000.


Begin with your A-EON X5000 system powered down and insert the USB disk into a USB port - remove any other USB disks that are plugged in
Power on your system and press ESC when the boot animation starts to load the U-Boot menu
Choose "Command Prompt" from the U-Boot menu
Type the following commands exactly as they appear below (ENTER after each line):
usb reset
setenv bootarg root=/dev/sdb2 rootdelay=5
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage-5.5
fatload usb 0:1 1c00000 cyrus_p5020_eth_poweroff.dtb
bootm 1000000 - 1c00000

At this point the system just sits with a flashing cursor. Nothing else happens.

Which graphics card is installed in your X5000?

GParted "sees" partitions whether they are mounted or not. You do not have to mount a partition to resize it; and in fact you cannot resize a partition if it is mounted.

Per the troubleshooting:
There may be a GPU/driver compatibility issue. Fienix-GPU-Bandage may help your system boot to Fienix Desktop. Try using Fienix-GPU-Bandage:

Boot up your system, when the black screen appears press CTRL + ALT + F1 to switch to console
Log in and log in as su
Enter "apt-get install fienix-gpu-bandage"
Enter "fienix-gpu-bandage"
Press 1 for Yes
Reboot
Please let us know if this fixes the issue.
Thanks,
-Casey

It did not. Here's what happens............

Sorry, the board won't allow me to attach a 71kb picture of it nor will it allow me to delete this post.
I never get a black screen. Everything seems to work down to this point:

Loading device tree to 03fe5000, end 03fff014 ... OK

Then the cursor is solid blue. Nothing else happens. CTRL + ALT + F1 does nothing. It just sits at this screen.
Should the FIENIX-DISK partition be unreadable like I stated above?

To share an image you need to utilize an image sharing site like imgbb.com.

There is a new image and modified instructions at https://fienixppc.blogspot.com/p/u-boot.html. Please try it.
