Creating an error number table

I concatenate include/asm-generic/errno-base.h and include/asm-generic/errno.h, printed it the result file and place it at front on my desk.

This is the result file:

Soldering BGA chips

Here in our company we have a guy who solder BGA chips frequently. First here remove all excess of sold from the board, then he place thermical tape around the component to protect components near it. Then he place pasty flux on the board, place the component over it and use the “Steinel Type 3483 Programmable Heat Gun” to heat and melt the solder.

For lead free solder he uses 490C and to solder with lead he uses 350C.

Transfering file to U-Boot over serial

If you are using “minicom” to communicate with U-Boot and want to transfer Linux kernel image over serial you should first install lrzsz package:

$ sudo apt-get install lrzsz

Then on minicom issue this command on U-Boot prompt:

=> loady                                                                        
## Ready for binary (ymodem) download to 0xA0800000 at 115200 bps...            
C

Now press Ctrl + A, then release keyboard and press S. It will show a text window to select what protocol to use, then select ymodem. Now select a file to upload (press Space) and press Enter to confirm.
