A13 stuck "Starting kernel"
« on: March 02, 2019, 10:00:35 AM »
I try work to LCD on A13-OLinuXino-micro. I'm doing settings from kernel and after compile it. I use
Code: [Select]
dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/sdb bs=1024 seek=8 command. But image stuck on "Starting kernel". How can I fix this?

Hi Faruk,

could you give a bit more elaborate information (e.g. your kernel and U-Boot versions)? I think I had similar issues when switching from sunxi U-Boot to mainline U-Boot somewhere in 2016. The Sunxi kernel was missing a few upstream commits to boot with newer U-Boot versions. Nowadays I'm using both mainline U-Boot and kernel and everything works great :-)

Best,

Hi fluxDev

I am newbie this job and sometimes I overlook detail. U-Boot version is 2014. It is official image. Kernel version is 3.4. Actually I don't have much more detail. Thanks for helping :)

Hi Faruk,

unfortunately my knowledge about the 3.4 kernel and 2014 U-Boot is fairly limited. When I started on my job back in 2016 one of my first actions was migrating away from them ;) I guess you already checked out the instructions on http://linux-sunxi.org/U-Boot and http://linux-sunxi.org/Linux_Kernel?

I moved to the mainline versions because of security concerns and because I wanted to be able to utilize the standard cross compilation toolchain of Debian Stretch. I have a Github repository which I used for experimentation back then: https://github.com/markuspg/A13Bootstrapping It's of limited use because you are using a different A13 variant, but perhaps it gives some hints.

Another attempt would have been to use a buildroot defconfig to quickly obtain an image. The A13 OLinuXino has one, but for the A13 OLinuXino Micro I don't see one.

Sorry, I'd have hoped to be of more help  :(
