Shutdown operation doesn't power Orange Pi down

Recommended Posts

Armbianmonitor:

I have two Orange PI +2E machines. The first one I got was a while ago so it's running a 3.4.113 kernel (16.04), the more recent one I purchased is running 4.19.13 kernel (18.04) - both are Ubuntu Armbian. I've noticed when I use the "shutdown now" command on the older pi, the board actually powers off but when I use the same command on the newer kernel board, it never powers down. The newer board appears to stop all services and eventually report that the system is halted but it remains in that state. Is there a way to enable it to power off after a "shutdown now" is issued? I'm wondering if this is a kernel difference but it may be something else completely.

 

Thanks,

-Greg

Power down function is not supported yet on H3 boards due to lack of support for https://linux-sunxi.org/AR100 inside the kernel. 

Thanks Igor, but this functionality was supported on older kernel 3.4.113 and subsequently removed from the newer kernel?

Support for those chips in a modern kernel were mostly written from scratch. Due to incompatibility with a modern kernel and due to bad code quality ... which would never been accepted to the mainline kernel in a first place.
