Power LED flashing red/green...
#1
During a compile job today the Power LED on my Pinebook Pro running ManjaroARM, Kernel 5.10.7 was starting to flash in red-green sequence and I noticed the OS got stuck.

Have had to do a hard reset (power off / on) to get it up and running again.

Already checked the wiki, but didn't find a hint what a flashing red/green Power LED means, so maybe someone can give me an advise please?

Note: I run the OS from an internal Intel SSD and just started experimenting with the newer kernel in ManjaroARM yesterday with different results. I switched back to the linux-pinebookpro kernel on ManjaroARM (5.7.9) after the system came up again, and the compile job was running without any hiccups... so might be a kernel issue eventually...

I've just experienced the same issue.  I was just browsing in Chromium when it happened.  My system is a freshly installed Manjaro XFCE 20.12 with the latest updates applied.

Hey, maybe you can try installing the latest pinebookpro specific kernel via

Code:
pacman -S linux-pinebookpro linux-pinebookpro-headers

and check if the problem still exists?

On my end this kernel runs quite solid.

(01-26-2021, 05:19 AM)Well, I had the same issue, and like a dummy I followed these instructions rather blindly. Previously, the PBP had encountered the flashing green/red one time (after a system update). I was able to shut it down and successfully boot it with the power key. I ran the command below, and now it wont boot, even as far as the "Manjaro" logo. It goes through the first screen, which would let me abort the boot (I think it drops me into grub or some other bootloader), but if I proceed I get to a black screen almost immediately.I'll probably just reinstall, I only just set this up a couple days ago. But thought I'd report my experience. I was a little nervous when it said it was going to remove "linux" and I guess I shoulda followed my gut!appelgriebsch Wrote:
