Trouble installing cloudshell...

Unread post by FbS » Wed May 15, 2019 5:41 am

Hi. I followed the instructions here : https://wiki.odroid.com/accessory/add-o ... sy_install

but there is a problem with the cloudshell fan package , as I get :

update-rc.d: error: initscript does not exist: /etc/init.d/cloudshell2-fan

Also, despite reboot, the LCD is still black, so is there anything additionnal to do to see it living ?

PS:

Did that : echo "options fbtft_device name=hktft9340 busnum=1 rotate=270" > /etc/modprobe.d/odroid-cloudshell.conf

and the display lights up, but still displays nothing...

Hi.

Which OS do you use?
If your system is on Ubuntu/Debian, try the following commands.

You don't need to download/install the deb file yourself. We're providing package repository for CloudShell scripts.

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kyle1117/ppa
# Then **apt update** will run automatically if you use Ubuntu 18.04 or above. If not, run **apt update**

sudo apt install odroid-cloudshell cloudshell2-fan cloudshell-lcd
sudo reboot
That 3 packages should make your CloudShell 2 fan and LCD works.
If LCD still doesn't work, you should look into your configuration files about loading modules for CloudShell 2.

/etc/modules

Code: Select all

spi-s3c64xx
spidev
fbtft_device
and /etc/modprobe.d/odroid-cloudshell.conf

Code: Select all

options fbtft_device name=hktft9340 busnum=1 rotate=270 speed=35000000
FYI, it has been reported that adding speed=35000000 fixes LCD to work.

Hi.

I used Linux ubuntu, with a 4.14 kernel, but my XU4 was purchased a few months ago, so I tried to do a dist-upgdrade, and finally this completely corrupted the packaging system.

I was not aware packages were readily available, so I will reflash a fresh ubuntu on the emmc tonight, and I will try according to your instructions...

I talked too fast....

Yes, it was working. But I installed 2 disks, and re-ran through the whole procedure starting from the same fresh image.

And at first reboot, I have some "login banner" displaying on the LCD that does lots of flickering.....And then it comes black, and there's nothing I can find to have it back again, even the backlight...

Any ideas ?

OK. I've got a clue.

I plugged the HDMI cable of the XU3, and a monitor on the other side.

While the LCD is black....display happens to the HDMI that is tty mode (on a small area top left...), with all I expected to see on the LCD

So for some reason, that stupid thing does the output to the HDMI, not the LCD.

How to fix that back ?

OK. Don't go further.....IT IS AN HARDWARE ISSUE !

Display works only when slightly pinched at the top right....

Now a question to the hardkernel guys : is there a warranty ?

Yes, there must be a (limited) warranty. viewtopic.php?f=53&t=661

I think the LCD FPC cable seems not to be fully inserted into the connector or slightly misaligned. :(
Contact "odroid at hardkernel dot com" with a link of this post.
They will help your RMA process if you purchased the board from us directly.
Otherwise, contact your local distributor/reseller.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
