Re: panic: pmap_map_chunk: no L2 table for VA 0xc0400000


Thank you for the quick responds excellent.

Don, I have used the following instructions.

Hamajima, I have checked the files and they are identical.

Chris, I will start all over again if problems reappear then I will give the VERBOSE_INIT_ARM a try.

ALL, I didn't knew about the existents of the article on how to install NetBSD on NSLU2.
I will give this installation instruction another try.

Again thank you all for your responds, I will keep you posted on my progress if you like of course.

I have followed your instructions to the letter.

One thing that I was missing was the building of the tools I have done this with "./build.sh -u -m evbarm -a armeb tools" But after a days work which I enjoyed I got nothing but a error about L2 ?

I don't know what this means do you have any idea what went wrong or even better do you have the solution?

panic: pmap_map_chunk: no L2 table for VA 0xc0400000 Kind Regards,

If you:
$ grep -r pmap_map_chunk * | grep "L2 table"
arch/arm/arm32/pmap.c: * of the kernel L2 tables during bootstrap, so that pmap_map_chunk() can arch/arm/arm32/pmap.c: panic("pmap_map_chunk: no L2 table for VA 0x%08lx", va); arch/arm/arm32/pmap.c: panic("pmap_map_chunk: can't find L2 table for VA" pmap_chunk:arch/arm/arm32/pmap.c: * of the kernel L2 tables during bootstrap, so that pmap_map_chunk() can pmap_chunk:arch/arm/arm32/pmap.c: panic("pmap_map_chunk: no L2 table for VA 0x%08lx", va); pmap_chunk:arch/arm/arm32/pmap.c: panic("pmap_map_chunk: can't find L2 table for VA"

So it's probably in the above file that the failing call is made. It seems unlikely that there is something wrong with the kernel file, so the most likely problem is that something didn't get built right. I don't think you should be using the -u switch when building tools, but whether that is the problem remains to be seen.

I'm not sure which instructions you were following, but the process that seems to work best can be found at: http://wiki.netbsd.se/How_to_install_NetBSD_on_the_Linksys_NSLU2_%28Slug%29_without_a_serial_port%2C_using_NFS_and_telnet If you have a serial port installed, you can ignore the telnet stuff and just use your serial port to login. Skip down to the bottom if you want to use the installer rather than go the NFS route. Try the above link and let me know. If you were already using that procedure, try it again (you may want to consider starting from scratch), then let me know.

I recommend that in the future you address your questions/comments to the NetBSD arm mailing list, which I've included on this email. I'll get a copy either way, but if you go through the mailing list, you'll likely get an answer from somebody that knows better than me why you're having this problem.

Regards, Don
