I ran into same problems. When 'sensors' reports only 

in0: 5.00 V (min = +5.00 V, max = +5.00 V)
curr1: 0.00 A (max = +0.00 A)

emmc + nvme stopped working reliable together.

 

I solved most of my problems with buying an new PSU AND a certified 60W USB Type C to Type C Cable.

Random old Type C to Type C cable was unreliable. Some old non-Type C 5V/2A PSU did work, but only as long as i did not use emmc, sd + nvme at the same time, sensors reported same values 

 

Here is a incomplete list about PSU's and their possible boot options: https://wiki.radxa.com/Rock5/5b/power_supply

 

I bought a PSU from ALLNET with: USB-C 5V/3A, 9V/3A, 12V/3A, 15V/3A, 20V/2,25A (45W)

+ 60W cable

in0:          20.00 V  (min = +20.00 V, max = +20.00 V)
curr1:         2.25 A  (max =  +2.25 A)

 

So far I am very impressed about performance vs rk3399, this is a beast 🙂

And would also consider the legacy kernel in a better state than expected.

How do I get it to boot in console mode when I mostly don't need the desktop? The usual

Normally I'd say it is either ubuntu-desktop or ubuntu-minimal, but here my first choice would be removing xfdekstop4.

 

When in doubt, try "dpkg -l | grep desktop"  and remove whatever you'd find, like "apt remove  xfdesktop4".

Then you follow with an "apt autoremove". In this stage read carefully what is to be removed!

Is there any chance we could get kernel support for open-iscsi built into this kernel (I believe this requires module iscsi_tcp)?  I'm doing some Kubernetes testing and this is required for Longhorn.

 

I know I could build my own kernel and probably will if this is a request that will take a long time.  But I believe this will be a common use case for this board and it would be nice to have it in the base kernels.

 

Thanks!

If somebody is willing to a) test this scenario and b) then provide a PR that enables the requested module across all configs, then yes, we could ship it by default.
