  Pine Board using linux stuck during boot sequence
Posted by: ktaragorn - Today, 04:06 AM - Forum: Ubuntu - No Replies

I hope this is the right section of the board, I have an issue with the original kickstarter version of PineA64. I am trying to use Xenial Minimal Image by long sleep to run on my board.

The board was running fine for years now, since shortly after i got it, using the originally supplied Ubuntu image originally, trimmed down into a server style setup. However suddenly it stopped working, and when I plugged in a display, I see that it is hung during boot, with a huge dmesg log displayed and ending with " Press enter to go into maintainence, or Control + D to continue " the words may not be exactly correct.. Pressing enter drops me into a console, while control D continues the freeze. After trying a couple of things, I decided to do a clean flash.. I got the image mentioned earlier by longsleep and flashed it with balena Etcher onto the sd card (this was also purchased along with the board itself). After this it boots fine, and when I try to setup a few things and reboot it, it comes to this hung state again. I was very happy with this board as a Fileserver/NAS setup and i hope it is possible to figure this out, but my fear is it might be a hardware issue.. or perhaps it is a SD card issue. It would be good if I could verify one or the other. I have attached 2 dmesg logs, both after a clean flash -> reboot. Attempt 1 Attempt 2

  GPIO performance 100x slower compared to Raspberry Pi 3
Posted by: axelf - Yesterday, 03:31 PM - Forum: Hardware and Accessories - Replies (5)

Has anybody else observed this issue?

I am trying to get the Blinkit LED SPI Device to work with the RockPro64.
https://cpldcpu.wordpress.com/2014/11/30...-superled/ 
https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/blinkt


I have noticed that the Python GPIO library's  under Raspberry Pi 3 seem to run 100 times faster than can be achieved under RockPro64.

While a clock pulse under RockPro64 takes 600us a clock pulse under Raspberry Pi takes 8-8us.
This is using the same blinkit example code on both devices.

Does anybody know if Raspberry Pi 3 uses a better performing solution than the /sys/class/gpio interface for programming the GPIO than  the rockpro64 ? The rockPro64 is just too slow!

The only reason I think I can not get the blinkit LED to work on the RockPro64 it because its 100 ties slower than the Raspberry Pi 3 GPIO

You can see the oscilloscope scans below

  Rockpro64 boot issues
Posted by: larsgn - 03-21-2019, 02:02 PM - Forum: General Discussion on ROCKPRO64 - Replies (5)

Hi all,

I've searched the forum for a solution to my problem. Here's a quick overview of my setup:

Rockpro64 4GB in a NAS case
eMMC 64GB module
PCI-E SATA-II controller
1x 3.5" sata harddrive connected
12V/5A power supply

Now hear this, I tried several images (OMV, Armbian, Bionic and Stretch) all show the same behavior.

The first time I boot the system all goes well. I then configure the network, install some packages like bridge-utils, vlan, smartmontools, mdadm and ats for fancontrol. When I poweroff the system it shuts down like it is supposed to. Nothing strange here..

And then when I want to boot it again, nothing happens. The amber led on the ethernet interface blinks and also the white led on the front of the board flashes in a random order. The ethernet leds don't become solid like they do at a successfull boot.

Sometimes, if I leave the power disconnected for several hours up to 24hrs.. It boots up normal, this thing is driving me mad.

I am using solely original parts from the pine64 shop. What am I missing here?

Am I missing something or is this a u-boot/kernel problem?

  Trying to update kernel

I installed Bionic Containers aarch64 (DockerCE & Kubernetes) [microSD / eMMC Boot] [0.7.9] image.  I'm booting from a microSD.  I must be missing something obvious, but I can't boot to a different kernel.


The kernel install looks good.

  there no hdmi out on OMV
Posted by: chengjianwen - 03-21-2019, 09:00 AM - Forum: General Discussion on ROCKPRO64 - No Replies

I installed OMV, and there is no HDMI output always.
and every it crashed(I think) and can't boot again, I must install the fresh OMV again, and again.
I installed autoshutdown plugin, and the system seems never shutdown by it.
I configure the interface to WoL enabled, but I can't wake it up use a perl/python script.
the only worked component is ats, the fan worked well.
the two hard 4G disks /dev/sda and /dev/sdb always disappeared when boot the system from a long downtime.
I want to known if I shoud change to debian + samba, to let problems simply.
BTW, I use a 16GB eMMC to boot the system, and installed flash memory plugin, too.

  video not working
Posted by: greenhobby - 03-21-2019, 05:56 AM - Forum: Hardware and Accessories - No Replies

Hi,

I just plugged in my RockPro64 for the first time and all is fine for a few minutes (basic Ubuntu 18 image from this site). I was able to cd around and look at things. Ran htop, etc. Then the video dies and it won't come back up (interesting, the green led on the NIC port went out as well). Tried refreshing, rebooting, checked monitor/cable on other system (fine). Any ideas on how to troubleshoot? I detect it's booting ok since keyboard and mouse are lit up after a few seconds and white light comes on.

Also, the fan purchased here does not work when plugged into the fan connector.

Thanks in advance for helping.
