If cpu is hot, then any thermo-glue may be fluid after a while and the fan slides.

That sounds like heatsink compound, not thermal glue. Heatsink compound is a silicone paste that helps heat transfer between the CPU and the heatsink by filling any tiny gaps between the two. It intentionally gets softer when it's hot. It's not intended to hold anything in place, and is only used when you have some other means of securing the heatsink.

If you do end up with a stick-on or glue-on heatsink you'll want to remove the heatsink compound first, as nothing is going to stick to it.

Can anybody plz point me out on how to disable cointing in SLB loader and just point out on necessary thing to boot by default ?

Currently after UBOOT loaded-up and "boota" executed, i do have that:

Quote:

] boota
A1 Second-level booter V2.
Idea, design and main code: Andrea Vallinotto.
Testing and fixes: Stefan Burstroem
SFS and ISO9660 reading routines: Joerg Strohmayer.
Linux booting extensions: Andrea and the GRUB team.
Possible selections:
1 -> AmigaOS 4.x: DH0 AmigaOS 4.1 Final
Choice ?


So i forced to hit "1" all the time + counter of few seconds take time as well.

I am sure that should be something easy to change, like some slb.txt somehwere, or just additional uboot settings, just can't find it yet.

Thanks!

Hi, if menu is on serial output "stdout=serial" (using radeonRX/HD) I'm afraid nothing can be done. I use a readeonRX and I must type 2 (my default bootconfig)

If it shows on screen UBoot envvar "menuboot_delay=2"

Are you trying to say, that SLB can't be configured at all to boot to default volume, without needs to press number on the keyboard ? That will be very strange!

Checked that link, and can't find anything about how to set to SLB that it will not provide countdown and start from the boot parition it find.

As i can see on that link just UBOOT commands only, but there i already type "Boota", so all the execution throw on SLB already, and i need to somehow said to SLB, to not have countdown and instead start loading from default parition.

Somewhere should be some options which change the countdown time in SLB Loader, as well as should have a option to disable it. Because if not, why anyone need a countdown, if he have one single boot media ?

If you use UBoot output via serial terminal I'm afraid not possible.

If you use UBoot output direct to vga/screen then check for "menuboot_delay=2" UBoot envvar.

Now for sake of tests i changed menuboot_delay from 2 to 0, saveenv, and after reboot there is no coundown and i don't have anymore this "Press SPACE for menu, ESC or Q for prompt, Enter for boot source", but it also didn't start up futher. And hitting "ESC" from the power on till that moment didn't give me ability to go to the UBOOT now. And make SLB starts with menuboot_delay=0, i should wait no much much longer and hit different keys so SLB will startup (by longer a mean a minute, and by pressong different keys i mean esc/enter/1/space/ etc in a row).


But once SLB starts, it again ! give me the same "choose what parition you want to start with", and i again, should press "1".

I mean, there is for real no way to told SLB to start up the partition by default without needs to press "1" ? If Jabirulo right, and when i have serial output, then i find it very very weird , that SLB because of that ask you to hit a key. I can't belive that when there will be stdout=vga, i will have no needs to press "1" in SLB (in SLB ! not in uboot !)

PS. Btw, how called that workbench tool allowing to change uboot environment from workbench ?

And once you change stdout from serial to vga, then you have no needs to press button in SLB menu anymore ? (that how i understand what you saying). I.e. pure change to stdout=vga make SLB do not ask you for key press, and choose the boot parition automatically and boot from ?

Haven't change to stdout=vga since looong time, as I use a redeonRX, but can try these weekend and see what happens.

So seems a "bug" in SLB :-/

Ok did a simple test:
-Unpluged my radeonRX and pluged "old" radeon HD6570
-Restart system, it goes to serial and hit ESC to get UBoot prompt.
-Type & Enter: setenv stdout vga
-Now I get vga output and type: boota
-I get /see the the boot entries list on vga:
Booting selected configuration in X seconds:
-> blah blah
-> bleh bleh
....



With stdout=serial I don't get "Booting selected configuration in X seconds:" string I get:
Possible selections:
-> blah blah
-> bleh bleh
....
Choice ?

So if serial set you should hit key, if vga set then autoboot. Funny ! What means selected configuration btw, a first in list ?

Can't remember if there existe some UBoot var to "preselect" option/entry, so by default is 1st entry.

boot_config - set it to the LABEL name from Kicklayout.

ok, thx, when you mena LABEL you whenn whole string?
my kicklayout has:
...
; Configuration name
LABEL AmigaOS 4.1 beta DEBUG
...

so in UBoot prompt/console: setenv boot_config "AmigaOS 4.1 beta DEBUG"

@Neils, Jabirulo

So, "boot_config" with the name of "LABEL" in the Kicklayout did the trick! Even with stdout=serial it autoboots now!

Through, I discovered another bug (I'm not sure if it's SLB or Uboot): you can't boot if you change bootmenu_delay from 2 to 0 or 1. Because 2 is the bare minimum, you can boot. 0 or 1 leave you in the "forever wait" state, but if you press like Madman, "1/esc/space/enter," then you can pass over it. But if you do nothing, it stays forever.

In other words, bootmenu_delay=2 is the fastest possible. I'm not sure why we need to lose those 2 seconds, but that how it is.

Now, the entire boot process from "power on" to a usable workbench with all the stuff loaded takes 33 seconds for me. That's it for the RadeonRX + SSD disk. 

I tried to tinker with kicklayout as well and commented out modules I did not use, like all unused "si" kmods, and only kept the one I use: 3114 one. Also, comment out all the video modules like ati, 3dlab, etc and i have 29 seconds cold boot, which is quite good imho !

In comprassion, my x5000 with also reduced kicklayout where i remove unused modules, takes quite longer time to boot: 45 seconds. So 20 seconds slower. And those 20 seconds, this is X5000 logo + bus scanning at the begining. But i do have all necesary "speed up" options there, like amigabootmenu's animate, animcycles, default, delay and timeout all to the 0, as well as amigaboot_quite to "y".

So at least with booting speed, sam460 surely won. The difference that on x5000 is the only one machine where i use real HDD, and not SSD, maybe that also reduce loading time a bit on second or two.

If you need an even faster boot on your Sam460, use a SD card as boot partition
