Is there any development going on to support the Pi2B officially? I just
got F22 running by using a brain transplant from the raspberry pi github
repos, but I haven't heard of any progress on respins or proper support
I figured out the various ports on the muitiport card and have 2 sata
drives I am testing with.
One drive works fine. But two drives it is a bit of a guess which one
will come in as /dev/sda (the mSD card is /dev/mmcblk0). And only one
drive is visible. Or at least gparted is only seeing one.
From messages back last fall? I had that this board would let me use
multiple sata drives, so there seems to be something I am missing.
Right now each item has its own power supply: Cubietruck, Multiport
card, Drive1, and Drive2. So it is not a power issue (or shouldn't be).
It has been a while since I have worked with F23, but here are a few things:
I build the mSD with:
--target=Cubietruck --media=/dev/sdb --norootpass
Once I get into Xfce I see /boot and / on the desktop, greyed out, ready
to be mounted! And /etc/fstab has:
UUID=5c922e06-bb74-402c-9d65-65feee4516b5 / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 0
UUID=3cc330d2-84bb-46ff-9501-3a1776ed09c5 /boot ext3 defaults,noatime 0 0
UUID=01aee4b3-d3bb-4e17-8d30-3005596f2861 swap swap defaults,noatime 0 0
Why is the automounter in Xfce doing this?
Nothing else of note, yet. Other than still no WiFi, but I see we are
still on the 2015.07 uboot.
Next I try out the multiport sata card. I have figured out all of the
interfaces on it and a start on how to test it.
sunxi musb (otg) support should land in 4.3, this has made me take
a look at the Fedora ARM kernel config, esp. since the sunxi musb
code only works with CONFIG_MUSB_PIO_ONLY=y
One thing stands out here, config-armv7 has:
Where as config-armv7-generic has:
And these 2 are mutually exclusive ...
I started investigating this after seening a /boot/config-....
which had "# CONFIG_MUSB_PIO_ONLY is not set", but I cannot
find the kernel with that anymore, so this may be my memory
playing tricks with me.
Either way I believe that it would be good to remove the
From config-armv7, because we do not want that.
While on the subject of ARM kernel config, can we please have:
Added to one of the armv7 config files (not sure which one is
appropriate), this enables support for a touchscreen found
on some tablets we support, resp. for getting input events
for power button presses on pretty much all Allwinner devices.
And last I wonder what the policy is for having things as
module vs builtin, e.g. on x86 usb controllers and the most
common storage controllers are builtin to speed boot-up,
sunxi certainly could benefit from building in CONFIG_MMC_SUNXI
and CONFIG_MMC_BLOCK, but as said I've no idea what the policy
Thanks & Regards,
