I follow the process in the getting started document to the letter. However upon running hostboot I get the following output:
[root@localhost IMG]# ./hostboot ../flow_programmer.ldr
loading secload to 0xe02a0000
extending boot ROM (secload entry 0xe0540000)
loading data stream
Response with incorrect header magic 0x0000
I am running CENTOS 6.0 (using the correct version of hostboot) in a virtual machine on a windows host. The USB device is passed straight into the virtual machine.
Oh, and the output of lsub is
[root@localhost IMG]# lsusb

I’m having a look into this at the moment.
Which Virtual Machine environment are you using? I suspect this is part of the problem.
Do you have any native Linux boxes available?December 24, 2012 at 12:07 pm #36446
I’m using virtual box. It is all 64 bit at the moment but have got round the problem of installing 32bit packages thus far. I have a native ubuntu install but noticed hostboot seems to have been built for CENTOS only?December 24, 2012 at 12:15 pm #36447
Sorry, that’s a legacy way that we name things. The distribution in the filename describes what it was built on, [CentOS] but you won’t have an issue using it on Ubuntu, as long as you have the right architecture. I use Ubuntu on my Linux desktop and have no issues with hostboot.
