dev-vcs/git segfaults on commit with specified CFLAGS

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 24 August 2018.

See https://bugs.gentoo.org/662260. Replacing "-march=armv8-a+crc -mtune=cortex-a53" with "-march=native" (or removing it) produced a working git. Otherwise, most any operation beyond cloning a repo would cause a segfault.

binutils

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 6 March 2018.

Hint: binutils-2.30 fails with https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=22764, binutils-2.29.1 works

Hmm. It seems to work for me. Its in my armv8a binhost at http://bloodnoc.org/~roy/BINHOSTS/gcc-7.x/armv8a/sys-devel/

Feel free to try it. An ebuild may not get a version bump if its changed from not working to working on a single arch. That would cause useless rebuilds for everyone already using it succesfully.

The comment 15 on that bug cvs-commit@gcc.gnu.org 2018-02-05 18:34:02 UTC, says it was fixed. Update your portage repository and try again.

Notes For 4.14.y

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 14 April 2018.

Add Simple FB

[*] Simple framebuffer support

This gets console messages until the VC4 starts.

Conversely, it appears to hang if the VC4 fails to start.

Simple framebuffer

The kernel starts with the best best built in console it can find, or none at all if there is none. Once modules load, the kernel will change the console driver, if there is a better one. That's a kernel design feature, it's not Pi specific.

With only a broken vc4 configured,the console never appears. With Simple Framebuffer and VC4, the kernel provide the hint that VC4 is broken.

Its also a design feature that the kernel cannot detect that VC4 does not work and switch back. Using both is probably the 'least worst' approach.

Host Virtualisation Support

libvirtd supports KVM on arm64 now. On the Pi, its probably only a toy but theres a challenge.

On the host, prepare to support arm64 guests.

Guest Paravirtualisation Support

Turn on Paravirtualisation and all the virtio drivers

(exactly what is TBD)

brcmfmac43430-sdio.txt not available

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/brcm don't have brcmfmac43430-sdio.txt. But brcmfmac43430-sdio.AP6212.txt and brcmfmac43430-sdio.MUR1DX.txt are found.
Do they replace brcmfmac43430-sdio.txt?
When I replace brcmfmac43430-sdio.txt with AP6212 and MUR1DX I don't see any change in dmesg.

--Necktwi (talk) 14:55, 30 Oct 2018 (IST)

AFIK the linux-firmware repo never distributed the brcmfmac43430 NVRAM file. You may not see any difference in dmesg, but there are differences in the two files. The Raspbian one includes improved BT coexistence when WiFi is enabled. You should use the Raspbian one since it is the official and supported Raspberry Pi distribution.

/dev/serial1 for btattach service

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 13 Oct 201.

Wouldn't it be more prudent to use /dev/serial1 instead of /dev/ttyAMA0 in /etc/init.d/btattach script?

Raspberry Pi Firmware github master branch doesn't boot with 5.10

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 3 Jan 2022.
user $cd raspberrypi
user $git clone -b master --depth=1 https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware

should be changed to

user $cd raspberrypi
user $git clone -b stable --depth=1 https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware

Otherwise the device won't boot. I don't know if this is specific to 5.10 or maybe it was just my build, but I could not get past a black screen or a rainbow screen when using boot files from the master branch. Switching to the stable branch fixes this issue.

Using git master branches of anything is always a risk. That's why 'live' ebuilds are not keyworded. Go ahead and change the Wiki and maybe add a health warning that if you want to try master, go ahead but if it breaks, you can keep all the pieces. :) --NeddySeagoon (talk) 11:47, 4 January 2022 (UTC)
