8MMINILPD4-EVK Hangs with clean Kernel

Contributor I


I'm trying to build my own kernel to use with 8MMINILPD4-EVK, but the board doesn't boot.

Steps I'm using:

Set the board to download mode and flash  L4.14.98_2.0.0_ga_images_MX8MMEVK.zip

sudo ./uuu L4.14.98_2.0.0_ga_images_MX8MMEVK.zip

Build Kernel:

$ git clone https://source.codeaurora.org/external/imx/linux-imx
$ cd linux-imx
$ git checkout origin/imx_4.14.98_2.3.0 -b imx_4.14.98_2.3.0

$ export ARCH=arm64
export CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu-
export PATH=/media/workspace/.bin/gcc-linaro-7.5.0-2019.12-x86_64_aarch64-linux-gnu/bin/:$PATH
make defconfig
make -j25 Image dtbs modules
make modules_install INSTALL_MOD_PATH=./modules

rm -rf ./modules/lib/modules/4.14.98-06659-g0347fe7527d06-dirty/build
rm -rf ./modules/lib/modules/4.14.98-06659-g0347fe7527d06-dirty/source

scp arch/arm64/boot/Image root@
scp arch/arm64/boot/dts/freescale/fsl-imx8mm-evk.dtb root@
scp -r ./modules/lib/modules/4.14.98-06659-g0347fe7527d06-dirty root@

It a clean kernel, no changes made.

It may have some issues with this kernel release, since this release provides no statement of support or validation for anything except the target for this release.


If possible please try with L4.14.98-2.0.0 and check if the problem persist.


Thank you,

Best regards,
