DE0-Nano-SoC, Strange error reading SD/MMC

Hi,  

 

Still working on my SoC/FPGA hello world on DE0-Nano-Soc 

 

As I had trouble with Yocto on my ubuntu 17.04 computer, I ended up doing steps of Robert Nelson for the linux part (eg the linux partition + Compil of Kernel) https://eewiki.net/display/linuxonarm/de0-nano-soc+kit 

and followed the steps of WS 2 Linux Kernel Intro for Altera SoC devices for preloader + FAT partition (Quartus / Qsys + bsp-editor then make with u-boot.img and Device tree) https://rocketboards.org/foswiki/documentation/ws2linuxkernelintroductionforalterasocdevices 

 

Almost working, but from initialization of the SD/MMC, I get this error all the time... Then boot is very long, and I don't have access to all functionalities of my Linux.  

 

Very strange, because still lot of processes can start successfully (not all) and at the end (after 2mn), I can login to ubuntu installed.  

 

The FPGA part is very simple, it comes from CD of DE0-Nano-Soc to... Make a led blink (FPGA Hello world).

I know I'm in a very specific case, but maybe one of you will have the light about what's happening.  

Thanks for help and suggestions !

I had similar issues, my SDcard was not picked up. Turns out its a device tree issue with MMC controller.

See here, looks like your prob too ... https://forum.rocketboards.org/t/linux-altera-4-12-failes-mmc-on-cyclonev-while-ltsi-does-not/1189

 

I added the following : CycloneV dts.

         sdmmc_clk_divided: sdmmc_clk_divided {

               #clock-cells = <0>;

               compatible = "altr,socfpga-gate-clk";

               clocks = <&sdmmc_clk>;

               clk-gate = <0xa0 8>;

               fixed-divider = <4>;

            };

 

and changed my sdmmc rntry a bit to this :

 

      hps_0_sdmmc: flash@0xff704000 {

         compatible = "altr,socfpga-dw-mshc";

         reg = <0xff704000 0x00001000>;

         resets = <&hps_0_rstmgr SDMMC_RESET>;

         interrupt-parent = <&hps_0_arm_gic_0>;

         interrupts = <0 139 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;

         //clocks = <&l4_mp_clk &sdmmc_clk>;

         clocks = <&l4_mp_clk>, <&sdmmc_clk_divided>;

         clock-names = "biu", "ciu";

         fifo-depth = <1024>;   /* embeddedsw.dts.params.fifo-depth type NUMBER */

         #address-cells = <1>;

         #size-cells = <0>;

         status = "okay";   /* embeddedsw.dts.params.status type STRING */

         broken-cd;

         bus-width = <4>;

         cap-mmc-highspeed;

         cap-sd-highspeed;

      }; //end flash@0xff704000 (hps_0_sdmmc)
