    halfa got a reaction from snakekick in Armbian 21.05.2 Focal with Linux 5.10.35-rockchip64: fancontrol die in error, fans not spinning   
    One solution to this would be to merge both the old and the new rule into the same file (like I ended up doing above), but I would highly suggest that we package a new version of the bsp with the correct rule in a 21.05.3 version to avoid issues with non-spinning fans. Let me know if I can assist by any means.

    Posting here following what was recommended on twitter.
    After updating my helios64 earlier this week and rebooting to get the new kernel, I realized it was suspiciously silent.
    A quick check to sensor temps readings and physical check made me realize the fan were not spinning.
     
    After a quick read on the wiki, I checked fancontrol which was indeed failing:
    root@helios64:~ # systemctl status fancontrol.service ● fancontrol.service - fan speed regulator Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/fancontrol.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Drop-In: /etc/systemd/system/fancontrol.service.d └─pid.conf Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2021-05-28 00:08:13 CEST; 1min 42s ago Docs: man:fancontrol(8) man:pwmconfig(8) Process: 2495 ExecStartPre=/usr/sbin/fancontrol --check (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Process: 2876 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/fancontrol (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Main PID: 2876 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) May 28 00:08:13 helios64 fancontrol[2876]: MINPWM=0 May 28 00:08:13 helios64 fancontrol[2876]: MAXPWM=255 May 28 00:08:13 helios64 fancontrol[2876]: AVERAGE=1 May 28 00:08:13 helios64 fancontrol[2876]: Error: file /dev/thermal-cpu/temp1_input doesn't exist May 28 00:08:13 helios64 fancontrol[2876]: Error: file /dev/thermal-cpu/temp1_input doesn't exist May 28 00:08:13 helios64 fancontrol[2876]: At least one referenced file is missing. Either some required kernel May 28 00:08:13 helios64 fancontrol[2876]: modules haven't been loaded, or your configuration file is outdated.

    Basically fancontrol expect a device in /dev to read the sensors value from, and that device seems to be missing. After a bit of poking around and learning about udev, I managed to manually solve the issue by recreating the device symlink manually:
    /usr/bin/mkdir /dev/thermal-cpu/ ln -s /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp /dev/thermal-cpu/temp1_input systemctl restart fancontrol.service systemctl status fancontrol.service Now digging more this issue happen because udev is not creating the symlink like it should for some reason. After reading the rule in /etc/udev/rules.d/90-helios64-hwmon-legacy.rules and a bit of udev documentation, I managed to find how to test it:
    root@helios64:~ # udevadm test /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0 [...] Reading rules file: /etc/udev/rules.d/90-helios64-hwmon-legacy.rules Reading rules file: /etc/udev/rules.d/90-helios64-ups.rules [...] DEVPATH=/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0 ACTION=add SUBSYSTEM=thermal IS_HELIOS64_HWMON=1 HWMON_PATH=/sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0 USEC_INITIALIZED=7544717 run: '/bin/ln -sf /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0 ' <-- something is wrong here, there is no target Unload module index Unloaded link configuration context. After spending a bit more time reading the udev rule, I realized that the second argument was empty because we don't match the ATTR{type}=="soc-thermal" condition. We can look up the types like this:
    root@helios64:~ # find /sys/ -name type | grep thermal /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/cooling_device1/type /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/type /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/cooling_device4/type /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/cooling_device2/type /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone1/type /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/cooling_device0/type /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/cooling_device3/type /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/thermal-zones/gpu/trips/gpu_alert0/type /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/thermal-zones/gpu/trips/gpu_crit/type /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/thermal-zones/cpu/trips/cpu_crit/type /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/thermal-zones/cpu/trips/cpu_alert0/type /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/thermal-zones/cpu/trips/cpu_alert1/type root@helios64:~ # cat /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/type cpu <-- we were expecting soc-thermal! and after rewriting the line with the new type, udev is happy again

Apparently for some reason the device-tree changed upstream and the thermal type changed from soc-thermal to cpu?

    For anybody passing by, the issue is due to the fact that for some reason the armbian-bsp-cli-helios64 package for 21.05.2 (EDIT: clarify, 21.05.1 is fine as seen below) was build with the old udev rule (for 4.4 kernels):
    $ ls armbian-bsp-cli-helios64_21.05.1_arm64.deb\data.tar\.\etc\udev\rules.d\ 10-wifi-disable-powermanagement.rules 50-mali.rules 50-rk3399-vpu.rules 50-usb-realtek-net.rules 70-keep-usb-lan-as-eth1.rules 90-helios64-hwmon.rules 90-helios64-ups.rules $ ls armbian-bsp-cli-helios64_21.05.2_arm64.deb\data.tar\.\etc\udev\rules.d\ 10-wifi-disable-powermanagement.rules 50-mali.rules 50-rk3399-vpu.rules 50-usb-realtek-net.rules 70-keep-usb-lan-as-eth1.rules 90-helios64-hwmon-legacy.rules 90-helios64-ups.rules The content of the 90-helios64-hwmon.rules is indeed correct and match the 5.10.x kernel device tree: https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/packages/bsp/helios64/90-helios64-hwmon.rules
     
    I tried reversing the build system to find why the old file was used instead of the other, but the best I could find is
    # in config/sources/families/include/rockchip64_common.inc 395 ### Fancontrol tweaks 396 # copy hwmon rules to fix device mapping 397 if [[ $BRANCH == legacy ]]; then 398 install -m 644 $SRC/packages/bsp/helios64/90-helios64-hwmon-legacy.rules $destination/etc/udev/rules.d/ 399 else 400 install -m 644 $SRC/packages/bsp/helios64/90-helios64-hwmon.rules $destination/etc/udev/rules.d/ 401 fi
