Topic: uboot tftp
I'm helping Jonathan Gray try to get OpenBSD running on Novena, and noticed that tftpboot is pretty unreliable - it gets frequent network timeouts and will often exceed u-boot's failure counter and attempt the download again.
I'm pretty sure it's not autoneg getting the duplex wrong, and dropping the peer to 100baseTX or 10baseT doesn't seem to help either. Any clues?
Also, is it possible to increase the grace period to hit ^c to get to the uboot menu? It's pretty short to go from the two-finger user+reset press to the keyboard in time. I guess I need to rebuild u-boot.img - are the instructions at http://www.kosagi.com/w/index.php?title … _PVT_Notes still up to date? It looks like recent u-boot commits have been in a different repository (/xobs/u-boot-novena)
