[solved] 5.38 Stretch 4.14 does not boot on Orange Pi Lite

Recommended Posts



I have flashed Armbian_5.35_Orangepilite_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113_desktop.img - and it works fine with my Orange Pi Lite v.1.1

But if I flash Armbian_5.38_Orangepilite_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.14.img which is aslo supported, the device does not boot. At least I get no output on HDMI, and no serial console over OTG. So I cannot check if it does not boot at all, or dies somewhere in the middle


How can I check why it does not boot?

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

I don't have "sun8i-h3-nanopi-neo-air.dts" file, so I can't evaluate the patch. Same file from linux-sunxi repo looks far too small for the patch: https://github.com/linux-sunxi/linux-sunxi/blob/sunxi-next/arch/arm/boot/dts/sun8i-h3-nanopi-neo-air.dts
Just appending same lines to my dts gives an error during compile:

# dtc -I dts -O dtb test.dts > sun8i-h3-orangepi-lite-pathced.dtb
Error: test.dts:1641.1-7 Label or path ehci0 not found
Error: test.dts:1645.1-7 Label or path ohci0 not found
Error: test.dts:1649.1-9 Label or path usb_otg not found
FATAL ERROR: Syntax error parsing input tree

My original dts "sun8i-h3-orangepi-lite.dts" looks like this: https://pastebin.com/6qUhWuTC

Any ideas where to apply the patch?
