Rock 5B: SD root file system not exist


Recommended Posts



Using the image Armbian_23.5.0-trunk.181_Rock-5b_lunar_edge_6.3.1.img I get this error at boot:


Begin: Mounting root file system ... Begin: Running /scripts/local-top ... done.
Begin: Running /scripts/local-premount ... Scanning for Btrfs filesystems
Begin: Waiting for root file system ... Begin: Running /scripts/local-block ... done.
Gave up waiting for root file system device.  Common problems:
 - Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
   - Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
 - Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT!  UUID=6a70cc68-5120-4343-887c-ca90fd2188f9 does not exist.  Dropping to a shell!

The SD card is working fine when using the Armbian_23.02.2_Rock-5b_jammy_legacy_5.10.110 image.

Automated test builds straight from development lab are designed for developers. They won't generate expenses by (repeatedly) asking questions but fix the problem if they could. Development builds are full of bugs and unfinished sections so it is extremely expensive to deal with this.



Those builds might work or not.


Use Armbian with the one and only stable kernel and wait 6-12 months that modern kernel is in good enough shape that won't randomly break. You are welcome to test new kernel it the mean time and use if it works good enough, but bug reports won't be taken by anyone (as we don't have people to waste time for such a nonsense) until support is stabilised and you or vendor will be interested enough to support us to support you.
