[Warning] NPi K1 Plus (not Pihole) seems to have trouble with kernel 5.11.1


Recommended Posts

As a test I updated on a secondary Pihole-Server (buster on NanoPi K1 Plus) the kernel to 5.11.1-dev and at startup Pihole did seem to make some trouble :(
The server isnt getting to the login prompt and on the serial console the last info is "Starting kernel..." :(

 

I updated some of my SMB-Servers with kernel 5.11.1-deb without problems.

 

Will later try a new resinstall with buster and 5.11.1 and see if Pihole will run on a complete new installation.

It seems that NanoPi K1 Plus is using rtl8189 WiFi ... Right ?

Driver is broken in 5.11, I'm working on it with other guys, I'm using OPiPC+/OPiLite/OPiPlus2E.

In the mean time, if you don't need WiFi, disable the module :

mv /lib/modules/5.11.1-sunxi/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8189fs/8189fs.ko /lib/modules/5.11.1-sunxi/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8189fs/8189fs.ko-disabled

Yes, and No ... it prevent all networking if WiFi is present, such as running "ifconfig" will hang forever.

Simply move or delete the 8189fs.ko module will prevent that.

Thanks I will keep that in mind when - in a half hour - do my new install.
I did already wiped the sdcard....if bnot I had checked against this wifi.module :(

I disabled the module on my NPi K1 Plus in the sunxi64 path, but with the new created 5.11.1-dev image the NPi K1 Plus

If you look at the resulting image, maybe the rtl8189fs.ko is still present and broken ...

I disabled the module in the "path" not in the "patch" (corrected this now) - so it shouldnt be present.
Thanks for your commit ;)
