XU4 Board Having Issues Booting

Unread post by livingrock123 » Sat May 11, 2019 12:58 am

Hi Everyone!

Just want to preface this with the fact that I am extremely new to SBCs and am just trying to get something to work on my little XU4 board.

So my issue...

I have tried to boot a Linux image using both my EMMC module as well as a microSD card. In both instances I basically get a bunch of lines of text spilling out of the monitor. It would seem like an error report, but the problem is there is no way for me to navigate through it to find out what exactly is going on... I did manage to catch one error that stuck out at me.

"Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 0002018e"
"Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address b6ebfaf6"

Also there is mention of a "Kernel panic"?

Anyone know what could possibly be the issue?

Thanks in Advance!

Tomas J.

So I have tried 3 different images just for sanity sake.

ubuntu-18.04.1-4.14-mate-odroid-xu4-20181203.img.xz

ubuntu-16.04-mate-odroid-xu4-20170731.img.xz

XU4-TheRA-Base-Pub-v3.0.6b.img.gz

The end goal is the the RetroArena on this thing because it is going in an arcade cabinet build....

I used 7 zip to decompress the images
then used win32diskimager to flash the images to a formatted SD card ( used SD formatter to format)

I have also tried using an EMMC module..

Please flash "ubuntu-18.04.1-4.14-mate-odroid-xu4-20181203.img.xz" with Etcher and let me know the result.
Don't decompress xz file.
