/sys folder empty after deploying the image on the SD card

Hi Everyone

Please Help!!!

I am using imx6ulevk for my embedded application.

After I deployed the whole image on the sd card with the following command

$ sudo dd if=build/tmp/deploy/images/imx6ulevk/fsl-image-qt5-imx6ulevk.sdcard of=/dev/<sdcard dev>

 i figured out that my /sys folder inside the SD is empty. Nothing inside, 0 bytes.

I can boot the Linux on imx6ulevk board but I cannot  stop the LCD for turning blank after 5min

because "$ echo 0 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/blank" and others similar commands will not work since /sys folder is empty.

when " $ du -hs /sys" returns 0 bytes and " $ vi  sys/class/graphics/fb0/blank" returns "cannot read the file"

I tried everything below to disable the blanking  but without succes:

echo -e '\033[9]' > /dev/tty0

echo -e '\033[9;0]' > /dev/tty1

echo 0 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/blank

echo 0 > /sys/class/graphics/fb1/blank

passing consoleblank=0 to bootargs

modifying drivers/tty/vt/vt.c with static int blankinterval = 0;


setterm -blank 0


Any help will be welcome.


Best Regards,
