BPI-R2-bsp-4.14 and 4.4.70


(Troumad) #1

Hello

I have try thus : https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-R2-bsp-4.14 with my mageia :

[root@localhost ~]# urpmi pv [root@localhost ~]# urpmi u-boot-tools [root@localhost ~]# urpmi gcc-arm-linux-gnu

I have 3 problems :

  1. My SD card is here :

/dev/sdb* and this is not good :

  • lsblk: /dev/mmcblk0 : n’est pas un périphérique bloc

  • INFO: /dev/mmcblk0 : SD/eMMC !!

  • umount device: /dev/mmcblk0

  • ######################

  • update /dev/mmcblk0p1(vfat) with BPI-BOOT-bpi-r2.tgz

  • ######################

  • mount: /mnt : le périphérique spécial /dev/mmcblk0p1 n’existe pas.

  1. I have download

-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 45935582 nov. 8 21:52 4.4.70-BPI-R2-Kernel.tgz

-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 63234581 nov. 8 21:53 4.4.70-BPI-R2-Kernel-net.tgz

but not the BPI-R2-bsp-4.14 .

  1. There is nothing in the boot directory

[root@localhost ~]# ll /mnt/sdb2/boot/

total 0

Strange that your current kernel recognize mmcblk as sdx…have you a udev-rule which renames the device? I don’t know mageia but linux-kernel should name it mmcblk

For 3…/boot in rootfs should be mountpoint of partition #1 sdb1 in your case

Don’t understand #1 and #2

Do you try a install-script? You can also try my 4.14 :slight_smile:

I don’t have rename the device. I have a mageia Caudron (test for the mga7) and the pthers PC the the home have mageia6 (the stable version).

A computer with mga6 as the same problem (sdc, but not mmcblk).


(Frank W.) #4

maybe mageia/caudron (i did not know it) brings this renaming…but you can create a symlink from /dev/sdx(y) to /dev/mmcblkx(py) to make the script run

if you have /dev/sdc as sd-card make this as root

ln -s /dev/sdc /dev/mmcblk0
ln -s /dev/sdc1 /dev/mmcblk0p1
ln -s /dev/sdc2 /dev/mmcblk0p2

Now, I try your .deb in https://github.com/frank-w/BPI-R2-4.14/releases/ Why the 4.14 but not the 4.18 ?


(Frank W.) #6

you can also try 4.18…this should be listed on this page too…

4.14 is LTS-Kernel and with more functions like poweroff,2nd gmac,hdmi,4.19 is LTS too, but the additional functions are currently missing
