Booting Fedora from the MicroSD fails, apparently due to U-Boot thinking
that the UART has "pressed a key" to abort the boot. I get a U-Boot prompt,
From the prompt you should be able to types "boot" and it should
continue to boot.
followed by lots of garbage (presumably due to baud rate mismatch).
Or the GPS already sending NMEA data.
Is there any easy way to get U-Boot to not listen to the UART?
Off hand I'm not sure, there was a patch set that did auto enable
based on the what the firmware reported.
I've tried this with 32-bit and 64-bit Fedora 28 on a Pi 3B and a
with the same results. Without hte GPS hat it boots fine.
Yes, so it seems like the GPS is probably trying to send data which is
in turn interrupting the boot process.
