Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1012014
Pandaboard is unable to boot with 3.11+ kernels
Last modified: 2014-03-26 01:33:31 EDT
Description of problem:
As of the 3.11 kernel the Pandaboard no longer boots the unified kernel. Attempted using the DTB and without. The issue seems to involve loading the
initramfs - when the kernel and dtb are used the kernel boots.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora 20 Alpha with the Pandaboard
System will display "Starting kernel ..' with no further output.
Fedora 20 Alpha
*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************
We apologize for the inconvenience. There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale. Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 20 kernel bugs.
Fedora 20 has now been rebased to 3.13.4-200.fc20. Please test this kernel update and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.
If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
So this is now booting with 3.14rc5 if you use an appended dtb to the kernel. We're looking at why this might not be working.
Turns out this was a minor issue of a few uboot commands... just need to get the right ones :)
Fixed as of arm-boot-config-0.62
arm-boot-config-0.62-1.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
arm-boot-config-0.62-1.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
