222Freescale MPC8315E-RDB (mpc8315e-rdb)
223=====================================
224
225The MPC8315 PowerPC reference platform (MPC8315E-RDB) is aimed at hardware and
226software development of network attached storage (NAS) and digital media server
227applications. The MPC8315E-RDB features the PowerQUICC II Pro processor, which
228includes a built-in security accelerator.

230Setup instructions
231------------------
232
233You will need the following:
234* nfs root setup on your workstation
235* tftp server installed on your workstation
236
237The original U-Boot image on board can't boot kernel versions 2.6.34 or later
238successfully, so the U-Boot image should be upgraded to the latest U-Boot.
239
240 1. First build a new U-Boot image for mpc8315e-rdb, u-boot.bin.mpc8315erdb,
241 then make it available on your tftp server. To compile the new u-boot:
242
243 $ git clone git://git.denx.de/u-boot.git
244 $ cd u-boot
245 $ git checkout -b v2010.09-mpc8315erdb v2010.09
246 $ make ARCH=powerpc CROSS_COMPILE=<powerpc cross compiler path> MPC8315ERDB_config
247 $ make ARCH=powerpc CROSS_COMPILE=<powerpc cross compiler path> all
248 $ cp u-boot.bin u-boot.bin.mpc8315erdb
249
250 2. Set up the environment in U-Boot:
251
252 =>setenv ipaddr <board ip>
253 =>setenv serverip <tftp server ip>
254
255 3. Flash the new U-Boot image:
256
257 =>tftp 200000 u-boot.bin.mpc8315erdb
258 =>protect off all
259 =>erase fe000000 +60000
260 =>cp.b 200000 fe000000 60000
261
262Then the kernel can be booted successfully:
263
264 1. Get the kernel (uImage.mpc8315erdb) and dtb (mpc8315erdb.dtb) files from
265 the Poky build tmp/deploy directory, and make them available on your tftp
266 server.
267
268 2. Set up the environment in U-Boot:
269
270 =>setenv bootargs root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot=<nfsroot ip>:<rootfs path> ip=<board ip>:<server ip>:<gateway ip>:255.255.255.0:mpc8315e:eth0:off console=ttyS0,115200
271
272 3. Download kernel and dtb to boot kernel.
273
274 =>tftp 800000 uImage.mpc8315erdb
275 =>tftp 780000 mpc8315erdb.dtb
276 =>bootm 800000 - 780000

282The RouterStation Pro is an Atheros AR7161 MIPS-based board. Geared towards
283networking applications, it has all of the usual features as well as three
284type IIIA mini-PCI slots and an on-board 3-port 10/100/1000 Ethernet switch,
285in addition to the 10/100/1000 Ethernet WAN port which supports
286Power-over-Ethernet.
