Won't boot, black screen
(07-03-2022, 03:09 AM)mdk Wrote: Solved my issue. Since yesterday I was wondering how u-boot passed arguments to the kernel, as I was not seeing them in extlinux.conf, it looked like:

label l0
    menu label Debian GNU/Linux bookworm/sid 5.15-sunxi64
    linux /vmlinuz-5.15-sunxi64
    initrd /initrd.img-5.15-sunxi64

    append root=/dev/mapper/calamares_crypt ro quiet

I was like "OK 'append' but where are the others"?

Doodling around the u-boot documentation and things, I spotted:

root@seraph:/# apt-cache policy u-boot-menu

  Installed: 4.1.0
  Candidate: 4.1.0
  Version table:
*** 4.1.0 990
        990 http://deb.debian.org/debian bookworm/main arm64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    4.0.4mobian1 990
        990 http://repo.mobian-project.org bookworm/main arm64 Packages

So I promptly ran:
apt install u-boot-menu=4.0.4mobian1

Rebooted, and boom, solved.

In case someone needs to do it too, I'm doing it over USB mass storage, (hold volume up in tow-boot until the 2nd vibration, or via Jump Drive), I installed

apt install qemu-user-static binfmt-support

So I can run binaries via qemu, and then just run:
mount --bind /dev /media/mdk/root/dev/
mount --bind /sys /media/mdk/root/sys/
mount --bind /proc /media/mdk/root/proc/
mount --bind /media/mdk/boot /media/mdk/root/boot/
chroot /media/mdk/root/

to chroot myself in my phone.

So, let's go read /var/log/apt/history.log:

Start-Date: 2022-06-25  08:23:26
Commandline: apt full-upgrade
Requested-By: mobian (1000)
Upgrade: gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly:arm64 (1.20.2-1+b1, 1.20.3-1), gsasl-common:arm64 (1.11.3-3, 2.0.0-1), libinput10:arm64 (1.20.1-1, 1.21.0-1), u-boot-menu:arm64 (4.0.4mobian1, 4.1.0), libgsasl18:arm64 (1.11.3-
3, 2.0.0-1), libgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0-0:arm64 (1.20.2-1+b1, 1.20.3-1), gir1.2-gst-plugins-bad-1.0:arm64 (1.20.2-1+b1, 1.20.3-1), libgnutls30:arm64 (3.7.4-2, 3.7.6-2), gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad:arm64 (1.20.2-1+
b1, 1.20.3-1), libgnutls-dane0:arm64 (3.7.4-2, 3.7.6-2), libinput-bin:arm64 (1.20.1-1, 1.21.0-1)
End-Date: 2022-06-25  08:25:38

and here we are, u-boot-menu upgraded from 4.0.4 (mobian side) to 4.1.0 (debian side).

Congrats on solving it. This is a good thread to keep around as someone else might find this useful. Just the other day I flashed Tow-boot to boot sector  on my PP and this is great. No more jump drive although jump drive was like a must have in the beginning.
