Re: rpi-eeprom beta package - VL805 updates

The rpi-eeprom package is only supported on Raspbian so for other distributions the maintainers would need to implement a similar package. Since the update is just a shell script it should be reasonably easy for other distributions to either re-package the scripts or roll their own e.g. LibreElec d...

Re: rpi-eeprom beta package - VL805 updates

Apologies if this is a stupid question and answered elsewhere, but I’m womndering if someone could please explain how you are supposed to update the EEPROM on the rpi4 if you aren’t running raspbian? I’m running arch linux arm on my rpi4, using the aarch64 4.19.y branch of raspberrypi/linux kernel. ...

Re: 4.19 kernel 64 bit support - please report issues here

Has anyone managed to build and boot a 64-bit kernel for the Pi4 yet? I currently build my own 64-bit kernel from the raspberrypi/linux github repo, to use with 64-bit arch Linux arm userland on a 3B+. I’m hoping to migrate that system over to the Pi4 when my order eventually arrives, but I’ve seen ...

Re: 4.19 kernel 64 bit support - please report issues here

I am keeping my 3B+ on 4.19.17 for now. I have tried building 4.19.19 and 4.19.23, but both experience consistent kernel panics upon boot and fail to boot at all. I still experience the same issues with 4.19.17 that I reported before, and have expereinced on all 4.19 builds, which is inconsistent bo...

Re: 4.19 kernel 64 bit support - please report issues here

64bit userspace isn't being looked at currently, but most things should work there with the exception of GPU accelerated multimedia. Sorry, your problem sounds like a job for a serial console to see what is going on, and I'd need to know the configuration (particularly if using legacy, fkms, or kms...

Re: 4.19 kernel 64 bit support - please report issues here

Great that we have a place specifically for 64-bit! :) I am running 4.19.y 64-bit (aarch64) complied and built from source using the the RasPi foundation provided kernel builds on github and iusing the default arch/arm64/bcmrpi3_defconfig. Admittedly I am running on it Arch Linux Arm, so it may not ...

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

Am I imagining things, or is the arm64 arch in the 4.19.y branch getting more updates pulled to it by the maintainers than the old 4.14.y branch, which usually required a pull request be made first? Is this a sign that we could be seeing 64-bit as standard in an upcoming Raspbian image?

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

I can’t reproduce the bug reported there exactly once the pi has successfully booted, but I am experiencing a kernel panic during startup in about 3/5 of all startups, and the messages all have to do with lan78xx. Have those patches previously applied to the 4.14 branch been applied to the the 4.19...

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

Having finally managed to attach a display to my 3B+, I think that the kernel panics I’ve been seeing on startup are to do with the lan78xx driver, probably something related to this https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/2608. I can’t reproduce the bug reported there exactly once the pi has su...

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

This dwc-otg driver problem is back with 4.19.y, https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/2450 It does not appear that this commit has made it into 4.19 https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/commit/e0d2b2b6df54f175dc73eb294976e756fa68d57d It does not apply cleanly, but I think I merged it properl...

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

Just wanted to throw my 2 cents in (even though it might not be wanted, especially as I'm running a non-supported configuration :| ) I tried compiling the 4.19.y kernel for my 3B+ using the arm64 architecture. Unfortunately something is wrong with the config, as the pi refuses to boot to the new ker...

Ah, appologies, I didn’t see that thread. I’ll have a look and report my issues there instead. It’s a shame that it appears like it’s a widespread issue with the 3B+ Though :(

Where to start troubleshooting 3B+ problems?

Hi. I’m at a bit of a loss as to where to start troubleshooting with the pi? Since upgrading to the pi 3 b+, I have expereinced a huge increase in stability problems and seemingly random shutdowns that I cannot solve without a power disconnect and reboot. What confuses me is that, being a bit of a l...
