Do you use Ubuntu 20.04 minimal/mate image?
Hard to tell which image I am running now, as the system was built from image years from now and has been changed/upgraded multiple times since.
Here's what I am running:
Code: Select all
me@odroidc1:~$ uname -a
Linux odroidc1 3.10.107-23 #2 SMP PREEMPT Thu Sep 24 11:55:46 -03 2020 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux
me@odroidc1:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS
Oh - by no means am I blaming the kernel change itself.
The only observation I have, is: the new files won't boot, and old ones I had backed up - do.
BTW I am not able to tell if the old/bootable uInit files are binary same as what is in the published -23.deb (I simply don't know). All I know is I do have a bootable device with a kernel version 3.10.107-23
, and I am just lacking the modules with matching that version magic (hence the request for the old DEB - I don't intend to install it all, rather extract modules/firmware from it).
It very much could be. Thanks for the pointer!
Problem is (for me), I'd need to hook up a serial console to attempt to troubleshoot the boot failure... and the device is located in a not-so-accessible location. This is why I started with a revert first...
All I know this far is - when I revert the /media/boot to a known-working state, it does boot (w/o modules). Using the new -24 kernel (while keeping boot.ini) causes "some" boot failure (unknown where and what - all I can say the device does not come up + no HDMI output).
When I manage to get some serial output - will update this thread.
[EDIT] Absent the .DEB, I did compile the modules myself eventually (from 3.10.103-23 tag of https://github.com/hardkernel/linux.git
). It may sound strange... though it was still easier for me to spin up a Ubuntu VM and x-compile kernel modules, than attach serial console and actually troubleshoot:) ).
Anyways - the device is fully working now (on -23 version). I will try some other experiments in the future to see what prevents me from installing the -24 version, but likely not today.
BTW. an official .deb for (-23) vsn would still be nice to have if anyone could share it. (I guess what I can output with [c}make pkg-deb[/c] is far from being the same
