DIY mainline kernel (4.12)+ ubuntu base 17.04 (zesty) for vim pro and EMMC install


#21

hey guys,
how about this ? a mainline 4.12.0 kernel, patched on the fly with a shell script (and using only sed, ed and cp), which successfully boots on a kvim pro :checkered_flag::hugs::blush::1st_place_medal: and says…

I admit not everything works right away :worried:,
but at least we have a working process to produce, test, fix, iterate on mainline (4.12)
and some hope that the process can also be applied (with caution) to any 4.13 release candidate as well.
I consider to publish my toolset soon, if someone is interested enough to test and upgrade it :notes::surfing_man::men_wrestling::seedling:


#22

Publish it please when my Khadas will arrive i want to test it.


#23

I admit not everything works right away :worried:,

Ok, 1st annoying issue was ethernet, now it is fixed, after a few additional tweaks to the defconfig file :sweat_smile:
and here is the dmesg trace
https://pastebin.com/je7rYFVD
Let’s see if there is something looking a bit wrong in it, I can see

[ 0.181379] dmi: Firmware registration failed.
[ 2.529709] ALSA device list:
[ 2.532498] No soundcards found.
[ 13.075288] systemd[1]: System time before build time, advancing clock.

but they seem ok enough for me for now, what do you think, guys ?


#24

Next issue to solve :
get the hdmi monitor display the boot trace and then a login prompt (i know, no usb and keyboard support yet in mainline 4.12, but I just get prepared for some future good news)
it does display only a static logo for now;

Can anyone or @numbqq, @Gouwa give me a hint please, tks !


#25

Hi ravelo,

You mean no boot trace and login prompt with 4.12.7/16.04.3 ?


#26

yes Nick,
but i think it is because I removed
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FB=y
from my defconfig…
I am rebuilding with them now…

for the info, boot trace and login prompt ok on serial console, which was my primary concern


#27

Hi ravelo,

Yes, CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE is needed if you want to output message to HDMI screen.


#28

Alas, that changed nothing,
still no boot trace and login prompt on my hdmi monitor :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

sudo /bin/fbset says “no /dev/fb0” !


#29

What is your defconfig? Maybe drm module have not been loaded. Check about CONFIG_DRM,CONFIG_DRM_MESON and CONFIG_DRM_MESON_DW_HDMI. And try modprobe meson-drm to load drm module.

#32

not there yet,
I did not build it as module,
CONFIG_DRM_MESON_DW_HDMI=y

and no meson-drm at all in dmesg for now

is it mandatory to build it as a module (CONFIG_DRM_MESON_DW_HDMI=m) ?

tks Nick


#33

I have another problem,
rc.local never runs when expected (ie , at boot time) on 4.12.7/16.04.3

even after a sudo systemctl enable rc-local.service
and a reboot

Anyway, it seems that ubuntu now pushes us to use system 5 style init.d to start things at boot time, so let’s see if it works…

But this is confusing :

root@ivnVimPro:~# runlevel
N 5
root@ivnVimPro:~# ls -l /etc/rc5.d/*local
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Aug  8 06:52 /etc/rc5.d/S03rc.local -> ../init.d/rc.local

and /etc/init.d/rc.local contains code to start /etc/rc.local and prints traces I do not see in dmesg!
weird :hushed:


#34

so, I did like they say here

but still no trace in dmesg after reboot !

although it does not run, my test script seems activated and enabled…

raxy@ivnVimPro:~$ sudo systemctl is-enabled raxy-init
raxy-init.service is not a native service, redirecting to systemd-sysv-install
Executing /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install is-enabled raxy-init
enabled
raxy@ivnVimPro:~$ sudo systemctl is-active raxy-init
active

#35

yet another problem : incoming ssh sessions being refused
solution : liberate a few sources in /var/apt/sources/list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openssh-server -y
check that daemon runs with…
ps -ef|grep sshd

and enjoy opening multiple ssh sessions/windows to the VIM in addition to the very basic usb-serial console solution !!


#36

For reference, and while I prepare to publish them properly in github,
here is the tool I actually use for building my kernels and ubuntu distros: 1.2.3.Run.sh
it calls this other file 99.ChrootScript.sh
and a few others that are static and a bit dumber.

Feel free to have a look and comment or ask questions
tks


#37

What about CONFIG_DRM and CONFIG_DRM_MESON? Try to build all of them in.


#38

i did
CONFIG_DRM=m
CONFIG_DRM_MESON=m
CONFIG_DRM_MESON_DW_HDMI=y
but i only get my full screen logo on the hdmi display for now

and here are the diffs between your sorted config (right) and my sorted config (left)


#39

Try to build all of them in kernel first.

CONFIG_DRM=y
CONFIG_DRM_MESON=y
CONFIG_DRM_MESON_DW_HDMI=y

#40

ok, thank you
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

edit : I did as you said and it now works ! (hdmi boot messages and login prompt)
