BPI-R2 boot / power suppy


The new MB is rev 1.2

(Frank W.) #83

you can try my debian (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1oP7jy1KrrIOifvImo2nQ59wx3_9hHkgk 4.14.80) burn to mmcblk1+ preloader to boot0 but you need to change in uenv.txt partition 1:1 to 0:1 and root to /dev/mmcblk1p2 (should be mmcblk0p2) and in root-partition/etc/fstab (mountpoint for /) also to /dev/mmcblk1p2


New few test. Slackarm updated to the fresh current version, kernel the same: 4.19.16 and two BPI-R2 MB: 1st rev 1.1 with soldered power-switch and second rev 1.2 without soldered power-switch.

On both now I haven’t kernel panic but on the 1st a have:

INIT: Switching to runlevel: 0
INIT: Sending proceRunning shutdown script /etc/rc.d/rc.0:
INIT: version 2.93 reloading
Saving system time to the hardware clock (localtime).
Stopping system message bus...
Unmounting remote filesystems:
Stopping udevd

Saving random seed from /dev/urandom in /etc/random-seed.
Turning off swap.
Unmounting local file systems:

/proc                    : ignored
/                        : successfully unmounted
Remounting root filesystem read-only:
mount: /dev/mmcblk0p2 mounted on /.
[   60.111412] reboot: Power down

and MB no powering off - still on.

The 2nd powered off correctly after poweroff command.

If something from mmcblk1boot0 (eMMC boot part) can have impact on this situation on 1st BPI-R2?

I done one more test with 2nd MB (BPI-R2 rev v1.2) without soldered power-switch and not touched eMMC. But, to UP it automatically when power back I connected 5V to otg. And, on poweroff command I have the same result as on the 1st MB with soldered power-switch. MB was not powered off but keep stay on [.................] reboot: Power down message :slight_smile:

Result are the same with and without acpid.

Thank you for your tests,but currently i have no idea how to “fix” it. Maybe it’s impossible to power it off if it is externally “forced” to power-on (with bridged power-switch/otg-power).

How do you want to power it on if you have it powered off (disabled power-switch)? I think there can be no solution.


Yes @frank-w, you have right, it is true. I’m awareness about this circle :slight_smile:
