Summary of Fedora on Odroid XU4
1. with Kernel 4.6.5-300.fc24 system boots without failure, but
to newer kernel fails due dracut didn't build suitable intramfs
2. newer kernel works only with "cpuidle.off=1" inserted into the
"append" kernel line in the /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf file, but
USB3 Hosts failed, no onboard ethernet
3. To boot the system from the eMMC card:
A. The initramfs image file must be rebuilt. The simplest way is
a. Boot up using the MicroSD card;
b. Partition the eMMC card such that partition 1 begins on
(Default starting sector from fdisk is 2048). There
4 partitions created;
c. Mount the Fedora image desired to be installed on the
d. Copy all partition data from the mounted fedora image
partitions (there are 4 for Fedora 26 ARM images) to the appropriate
e. Update the UUID values on what will be the
/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf file and /etc/fstab files of the eMMC
f. Assuming the eMMC partitions are mounted as such --
mount /dev/mmcblk1p4 /mnt
mount /dev/mmcblk1p2 /mnt/boot
then perform the following mounts --
mount -o bind /proc /mnt/proc
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev
mount -o bind /sys /mnt/sys
B. Rebuild the eMMC card's initramfs by executing the following
chroot /mnt dracut --add-drivers='pwrseq_emmc mmc_block'
mmc_block is not needed to be added.
you should drop a config snippet in a file such as
add_drivers+=" pwrseq_emmc "
with that dracut will always include the modules when making
