Strange behaviour and boot log parameter on Nanopi NEO

Recommended Posts

I noticed that with Nanopi NEO v1.2 the fixup.src is not loaded at startup, but after some googling i noticed that other boards with h3 chip succesfully load the correct fixup.  

My boot log:

Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.

it's a normal behaviour?

and...

This can be the cause of a random boot/reboot stuck (after some status led startup blinks)?

 

Thanks in advance for your help and work on this awesome project.

the file-name seems to be incomplete.

On my NanoPi Neo (with old ARMBIAN 5.69 stable Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.19.13-sunxi)

I could find the following file-name: /boot/dtb-4.19.13-sunxi/overlay/sun8i-h3-fixup.scr

 

Maybe your config-file is "corrupted"  (normal overlays are configured in /boot/armbianEnv.txt (but I dont know if this fix has to be configured elsewhere)

or the system/cpu-version isnt recognized or in this file the line

overlay_prefix=sun8i-h3

is missing?

 

Try to find your file-name with

find /boot -name *fix*
