Helios64 - Armbian 23.08 Bookworm issues (solved)


ebin-dev

Recommended Posts

Thanks. I went for armbian-firmware-full (and ran update-initramfs) using chroot. I'll have to see if my system boots tomorrow.

 

I've noticed that the 'uboot' in armbian 23 throws an error about the unknown command `rm` IIRC. The 'uboot' used for armbian 22 does not show this message. Does anyone else recognise this?

 

If the rebuilt 'uboot' throws that error again tomorrow I'll share the exact message here.

Using linux kernel 6.1.60 and linux-u-boot-current-helios64_21.08.9_arm64 (and rtl_nic firmware from git.kernel.org) such kernel panics cannot be reproduced here (booting from emmc). 

@RlndVt You are on Armbian 23.08.3 - 6.1.50 (dwc3-usb regression) without rtl_nic firmware from git.kernel.org and it is not stable.

Does the problem also occur if you use Armbian 23.05.4 - 6.1.36

Helios64 archives (i.e. this one) have been wiped and the only image available is Armbian 23.08.1 - 6.1.50, the useless one with the dwc3-usb regression. 

 

@Igor Would you please revert the Armbian images linked on the Helios64 download page back to Armbian bookworm and jammy 23.05.4 - 6.1.36 ? The only place where I can still find those images for the ultimate ARM powered NAS is on this mirror. (I would help out doing that as well).

The performance of the setup based on Armbian bookworm  23.05.4 is very impressive for a three year old NAS: using iperf3 measurements as a stress test, data transfer in both directions between server and client max out at 2.34 Gbit/s using the 2.5G interface (see the first and second iperf3 run below). 

 

This is currently not the case if data is transferred bidirectional at the same time (2.5G full duplex, see the third iperf3 run below).

Using linux kernel 6.1.60 and linux-u-boot-current-helios64_21.08.9_arm64 (and rtl_nic firmware from git.kernel.org) such kernel panics cannot be reproduced here (booting from emmc). 

Did you manually build 6.1.60? I don't see it available through the package manager. I'll try the custom u-boot build. I'm booting from an SD-card.

without rtl_nic firmware from git.kernel.org

 

FWIW, as I mention I installed armbian-firmware-full which includes 'rtl8156a-2.fw'. The md5sum matches from git.kernel.org.

@RlndVt that is actually the same kernel panic was getting at times.

But I was also not able to apply the fix. So if it is really related to the realtek driver that makes sense.

Glad to hear I'm not alone :).

Does the problem also occur if you use Armbian 23.05.4 - 6.1.36

I'll try that soon. I'm guessing that will work because I had been running Armbian 23 for a month till a 'recent' update/broke my system.

Unknown command 'kaslrseed' - try 'help'

 

That is most likely a bug in that version of u-boot. The solution is to flash another bootloader as shown earlier in this thread.

Is apparently a intentional change. (I'm assuming that) The error message is the 'gracefully skips' mentioned in the PR.

Yes - I built 6.1.60 and made it available in this thread for the ones who also need kernel plus matching linux-headers. But I would prefer to stay on Armbian 23.05.4 - 6.1.36.

I reverted linux-image-current-rockchip64 to 23.02.2 (5.15.93-rockchip64) and my system booted. For me some extra confirmation that the problem lies in the kernel version. I did see the same kaslrseed message which I'm ignoring for now.

 

 

$ apt-cache policy linux-image-current-rockchip64
linux-image-current-rockchip64:
  Installed: 23.02.2
  Candidate: 23.8.1
  Version table:
     23.8.1 500

        500 http://apt.armbian.com bookworm/main arm64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

 

 

@ebin-dev, could you explain how you built the newer kernel versions? Or point me to a resource that can help me along?

 

I'm hesitant about flashing 6.1.36 as I would like to avoid reconfiguring the install.

 

 

EDIT:

 

Building the required packages is apparently trivial: `git clone https://github.com/armbian/build` and a `./compile.sh`.

 

The result does however still seem to be missing the required patches. I'm now looking into how to get the right patches into the right place, would love some help.

There are three kernel versions 6.1.58, 6.1.60 and 6.6.0. I am currently using 6.1.58 and bootloader linux-u-boot-current-helios64_21.08.9_arm64 flashed to emmc/sd. In 6.1.58 the dwc3-usb regression is patched. All versions boot nicely but their performance in combination with the r8152 driver vary.

(Install with 'dpkg -i linux*')

There are three kernel versions 6.1.58, 6.1.60 and 6.6.0.

Thanks, I've installed 6.1.58; but got the same kernel problem as previously on my second boot. (First and third were okay.) I'm going to try the 6.6.0 version now. (E: 6.6.0 had two kernel crashes but booted on the third.)


Could you share how you patched 6.1.xx versions?

New Armbian build system:

 

./compile.sh kernel-patch <board etc>   # this allows you to modify the source during a pause and then compiles the corresponding patch

./comile.sh kernel  <board etc>               # this compiles kernel only, copy patch to be applied here: ./build/patch/kernel/archive/rockchip64-6.1

 

What may happen is that the watchdog timer has to reset the r8152 driver (mainline v1.12.13) under heavy loads (the higher the kernel version, the more likely)

 

I do not observe any kernel crashes on boot with any of the kernels 6.1.36, 6.1.58, 6.1.60 and 6.6.0 starting from Armbian 23.05.4 and using one of the two bootloaders as discussed earlier.

 

On the other side, I really had problems after installing Armbian full firmware and the current bootloader - and the only way out was to start from scratch.

 

Good luck !

 

P.S.: The dwc3-usb regression is fixed upstream in linux 6.1.59 and later.

@RlndVt Did you have any results compiling a kernel for your Helios or testing the Armbian 23.5.4 - 6.1.36 Image ?

 

P.S.: How to build Armbian is described here. But the system has changed and the new build system is not documented (yet). The important bits are those:

 

./compile.sh kernel-patch <board etc>   # this allows you to modify the source during a pause and then compiles the corresponding patch

./comile.sh kernel  <board etc>               # this compiles kernel only, copy patch to be applied here: ./build/patch/kernel/archive/rockchip64-6.1

 

The dwc3-usb regression is anyway fixed in all linux kernels starting from 6.1.59.

Armbian bookworm 23.05.4 with linux downgraded to 5.10.43 seems to be the perfect setup (if you need linux-headers). It runs absolutely stable during stress tests using linux-u-boot-current-helios64_21.08.9_arm64 or linux-u-boot-edge-helios64_22.02.1_arm64.

 

This kernel is the last one with hs400 support: emmc is accessed with 230MB/s. The fans don't spin up during boot but start slowly.  

However, it seems that RAM access is a little bit slower (timed cache reads) but what matters is stability. 

 

P.S.: If you downgrade from linux 6.x to linux 5.x all symlinks vmlinux* and uInitrd* should be deleted in the root directory / before reboot.

So far all my attempts to use the mainline driver r8152 in recent kernels 6.1.x and 6.6.y were accompanied by the system having to reset the driver on heavy loads.

(My apologies to @RlndVt and @0x349850341010010101010100 - the mainline r8152 driver indeed causes problems)

 

My attempts to replace the r8152 mainline driver by a recent version from Realtek (v.2.17.1) in linux kernels 6.1.xx and in 6.6.xx were accompanied by crashes.

 

The logical solution now was to step back to linux 5.10.43 (Realtek driver v2.14.0 (2020/09/24)) also used with Debian bullseye before.

 

After some performance tuning, network performance is now outstanding with that system (Armbian bookworm 23.05.4, linux downgraded to 5.10.43, linux-u-boot-edge-helios64_22.02.1_arm64, content of /lib/firmware/rtl_nic replaced by this firmware)

(Bitrates bidirectional: 2.28+1.54=3.82Gb/s; Transfer bidirectional 2.65+1.80=4.45 GBytes transferred in 10s)

 

P.S.: Performance optimised using sbc-bench - the famous tool from @tkaiser - and by changing the task affinity of iperf3.

I'm not using the 2.5Gbps port fwiw, but I did have a crash a few days ago:

Going to revert to buster. (5.15.) Buster has been 99% stable for me. Might consider attempting bullseye.

My latest tests with linux 6.6.2 were very promising: the watchdog timer does not reset the mainline r8152 driver anymore under heavy load (using the 2.5G interface). 

However, the mainline r8152 driver does not support bidirectional data exchange (total bidirectional transfer is capped to 2.35Gb/s).

 

If you like to test it, please find the kernel deb files here (debs-6.6.2) (to be installed with dpkg -i linux*) and the Armbian image here (Armbian-23.11.0-6.6.2) .

sbc-bench results are here.

 

(you may also like to consider these remarks)

 

P.S.: After a few days of testing linux-6.6.2, I must conclude that it is not yet fit for the purpose (produces swapper0 kernel panics). The best stable performance is still delivered by linux-5.10.43 (r8152 v2.14) and linux-5.15.52 (r8152 v1.12.12).

I appreciate the work being done to get us some stability.

 

I'm currently running 5.10.43 with r8152 v2.14.0 but finding it unstable with several reboots each day. I think 6.1.36 for me was marginally better but not much in it. @ebin-dev seems to be having a good time with 5.10.43 so I'm assuming I've missed something along the way.

 

I have:

uBoot from 22.02.1

kernel 5.10.43-rockchip64 #21.05.4 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jun 16 08:02:12 UTC 2021 

r8152a v2.14.0 (2020/09/24)

CPU min/max 1608000/performance.

4x HDD using mergerfs and snapraid, 1xSSD for root drive and booting from eMMC

 

Did I miss something?

@TheGuv Your CPU governor is set to performance, while I am using the standard settings (see below). You may safely upgrade linux to 5.15.52. Although it uses the r8152 mainline driver v.1.12.12 it is stable.

To figure out what is wrong with your system you should start from a fresh image (bookworm 23.05.4-6.1.36) and downgrade to one of the linux versions 5.15.93, 5.15.52 or 5.10.43 if you have problems with 6.1.36. Im am currently using linux 5.15.52.

 

# cat /etc/default/cpufrequtils

MAX_SPEED=1800000

Thank you @ebin-dev for the help and clues.

 

I tried 5.15.52 installing three .deb files

linux-dtb-current-rockchip64_22.05.4_arm64.deb
linux-headers-current-rockchip64_22.05.4_arm64.deb
linux-image-current-rockchip64_22.05.4_arm64.deb

downloaded from the 5.15.52 pool directory but afterwards I had no networking, and both the serial and console were acting strange with hangs and pauses which prevented me from login in to see what was going on. I reverted to 5.10.43.

Did I need to do something else, like different firmware in /lib/firmware/rtl_nic which is currently  from https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/rtl_nic ?

Should I have updated the initrd after installing the .debs? I know I'm being daft somewhere but after so many different tests over the last weeks I'm kind of spinning !

@TheGuv You need the firmware for the r8152 mainline driver present in linux 5.15.x and above. Edit: if you copy the firmware files to /lib/firmware/rtl_nic before you install the new linux kernel then those files are automatically copied into initrd during installation of the kernel. Otherwise you need to update initrd yourself.

 

I would certainly overwrite u-boot on emmc by https://imola.armbian.com/apt/pool/main/l/linux-u-boot-helios64-edge/linux-u-boot-edge-helios64_22.02.1_arm64.deb as described earlier in this thread.

 

And finally I would run sbc-bench at least once. It would appear to permanently change some performance related settings such that your system is more responsive.

 

I disabled Armbian updates back in August 2021... Good luck.

On my side I've been running  5.16.11 from linux-image-edge-rockchip64_22.02.1 and it has been rather stable, with occasional (once every 2 months?) lockups. I'm running on a jammy base.

Just saw that the 6.6.2 kernel is available in the test repos, anyone gave it a try?

Thanks to @prahal there is a fix for the reduced emmc speed. I can confirm that emmc can be accessed with hs400 again (read and write without CQE errors) - I have tested it with linux 5.15.93 and 6.1.11 (it works probably also for all higher linux versions).

 

#  hdparm -tT  /dev/mmcblk1p1

/dev/mmcblk1p1:
 Timing cached reads:   2632 MB in  2.00 seconds = 1316.22 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 658 MB in  3.01 seconds = 218.91 MB/sec

 

# helios64: enabling hs400 speed for accessing emmc
# changes to /boot/dtb/rockchip/rk3399-kobol-helios64.dtb (use device tree compiler 'dtc' for that)

added to phy@f780:
rockchip,enable-strobe-pulldown;

added to mmc@fe330000:
mmc-hs400-1_8v;
mmc-hs400-enhanced-strobe;

Linux 6.6.7 and 6.6.8 are stable so far on my system (manually installed linux-image, linux-dtb, linux-headers only).

You need to copy the rtl_nic firmware files to /lib/firmware/rtl_nic ...

 

Edit: Again, the watchdog timer may have to reset the mainline r8152 driver upon heavy network traffic.

Welcome to Armbian 23.11.0-trunk Bookworm with Linux 6.6.8-edge-rockchip64

System load:   2%           	Up time:       1:01	
Memory usage:  31% of 3.71G  	IP:	       192.168.xx.yy
CPU temp:      46°C           	Usage of /:    49% of 15G    	
storage/:      62% of 3.6T   	storage temp:  23°C  

 

So finally I arrived at a stable Armbian Bookworm configuration for Helios64:

 

Starting from Armbian Bookworm image (Armbian_23.5.4_Helios64_bookworm_current_6.1.36)

Disable Armbian updates in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/armbian.list

Copy rtl_nic firmware to /lib/firmware/rtl_nic

Upgrade kernel to linux-6.6.8 # download link to those debs downloaded 23.12.2023.

  (Edit: there would appear to be issues with NFS if you use linux 6.6.8 - use linux 6.1.71 in that case; if you still have issues, use linux 5.15.93)

Flash u-boot to emmc (linux-u-boot-edge-helios64_22.02.1_arm64) # see here

Set nic offload options (ethtool -K end1 tso on gso on gro on) # change 'end1' to your network interface name

Apply any changes to /boot/dtb/rockchip/rk3399-kobol-helios64.dtb (hs400 support, L2 cache information) # download link for your convenience

Execute 'sbc-bench -r' at least once; you may change the cpu governor in /etc/default/cpufrequtils to 'ondemand'

 

Edit: Meanwhile there is a more recent linux 6.6.30 (downloaded from beta.armbian.com on May 3rd), it is absolutely stable on my system if used in combination with a dtb (attached to this message) that implements a 75 mV bump for all states of the fast cores (as suggested by @prahal) (and additionally hs400 support and L2 cache information). Just copy the dtb to /boot/dtb/rockchip/rk3399-kobol-helios64.dtb.

 

! If you intend to use the 2.5G interface you need to fix the hardware issue first ! # Even if the 2.5G port is connected to a 2.5G switch, interface speed is 1G during autonegotiation for some time ...

 

With this configuration iperf3 measures 2.33 Gb/s transferred from/to the server (one-way), while in bidirectional mode 2x1.71Gb/s are transferred (simultaneously in both directions):

  • ebin-dev changed the title to Helios64 - Armbian 23.08 Bookworm issues (solved)

Thanks @ebin-dev for these instructions; after I bricked a nicely-working (but constantly shutting down) bullseye Helios64 by "apt upgrade"ing it to bookwork, I went with a (backup and a) clean reinstall following your instructions, and it seems much stabler indeed! (Of course, it's not doing anything yet as I still need to resetup everything I had...).

 

The only issue I have is that it doesn't boot if I have my DELOCK 4-SATA-to-USB-C plugged in (to a USB-3.0 port). Unplugging it, booting and plugging it later works though. Any idea?

Did you add 'vendor:device:u' to usbstoragequirks in /boot/armbianEnv.txt ? (here is why this might help)

 

Edit: example with 4 external sata hdds bridged with JMicron 578 (usbstoragequirks=152d:0578:u)
