[ LeMaker BananaPi ] USB ports seem to be DOA


Hardware Banana Pi - installed with Slackwarearm per Stuart Winter's excellent install doc.

Started with Slackwarearm -current version (Sun Oct 11 07:06:05 UTC 2015)
USB working correctly, had a couple usb powered hubs externals connected.

Well I decided to upgrade to Fri Nov 27 00:27:27 UTC 2015
Black Friday release!

Initially I forgot to un-blacklist aaa_elflibs from /etc/slackpkg.conf

so after reboot got a few complaints like GPG not working and a couple other complaints from some sbo packages.
updated aaa_elflibs, recompiled the SBO packages and things seemed back to normal, although I noticed my UBSs are not working?

That is they seem to not notice devices connected or removed?

(watching from dmesg I see nothing)
-rebooted, re-installed libusb and libusb-compat
-still no activity in dmesg when devices connected or removed?


Code:
rich@banana ~ $ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Here is the last 50 on a fresh reboot

Code:
rich@banana ~ $ sudo dmesg | tail -n 50

Wonder if it is hardware (Bpi) board related or kernel related?

Any one have any suggestions to debug usb?

I tried a known working USB mouse, jump-drive and couple other devices, but see no changes in dmesg.

Not opposed to complete reload, but thought this is a good time to improve t/s procedure.

Suggestions thoughts welcome.

Thanks!

It's also broken here but I hadn't used it with USB connected peripherals for a while so unfortunately hadn't noticed it.
I can't see what the problem is immediately so if you figure out what it is, please report back.

That makes me feel better, about it not being physical issue, I'll do the best I can and let you know if I find anything.

That explains it then. I'm glad it's not just Slackware as the thought of digging around with eudev right now wasn't an enjoyable thought ;-)
I'll keep an eye on what comes up and include any patches that are made.

Just a note to any interested. With Black Friday release I have not experienced this problem on a BananaPro

Thanks for the update Justwantin

--- I have the original bananapi (non-pro version) and the USB is still non-functional.

I fell like I have more questions than answers but this does not bother me in the least

To start off I thought I ordered the (pro) but got normal version, [PCB says BP-A20 and it has the smaller row of 10 pins under the gpio]
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-i...ew?usp=sharing

When I originally loaded I had to use BananaPiPro.sdcard_latest.img.xz - NOTE the [PRO] version used.
When I tried to use the non-pro I got CRC check fail. (tried a couple more times, and fresh downloads but no dice)

Additionally - In step 4.0 of install doc ftp://ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwar...L_BANANAPI.TXT
I had to pick
Code:
tftp ${fdt_addr} slackwarearm-current/dtb/sun7i-a20-bananapro.dtb
When I picked non-pro it would hang on loading Kernel.

These issues are no big deal just really ODD, so it works with pro when it is not the pro model? (confusing) (anybody else see this?)


Now back to thread issue USBs out to lunch after blackfriday update, might but be a non pro-issue.
-I see in this thread http://www.spinics.net/lists/arm-kernel/msg470215.html the def-config may be off in kernel upgrade.

So I tried this: (directions from notes not live) ((note: -rah is local appended name))
(((change to dir where kernel source is unpacked)))
Code:
        
        bash$ cp /boot/config-armv7-4.3.3 ./
        bash$ make clean
        bash$ make oldconfig   (make menuconfig here added X-POWERS APX20X PMIC=m and local append name "-armv7-rah") 
	bash$ make zImage
        bash$ make dtbs
	bash$ make modules
        bash$ make modules_install
        bash$ cat arch/arm/boot/zImage > /boot/zImage-armv7-4.3.3-rah
        bash$ cp System.map /boot/System.map-armv7-4.3.3-rah
        bash$ cp .config /boot/config-armv7-4.3.3-rah
        bash$ /usr/share/mkinitrd/mkinitrd_command_generator.sh -r
Then something like this:
Code:
cp -r arch/arm/boot/dts /boot/dtb-4.3.3-rah
mkinitrd -c -k 4.3.3-armv7-rah -f ext4 -r /dev/sda2 -m mmc_core.ko.gz:sunxi-mmc.ko.gz:scsi_mod.ko.gz:libata.ko.gz:libahci.ko.gz:libahci_platform.ko.gz:ahci_sunxi.ko.gz:mbcache.ko.gz:jbd2.ko.gz:ext4.ko.gz -u -o /boot/initrd-arm7-4.3.3-rah


rm /usr/src/linux
ln -s /usr/src/linux-4.3.3 /usr/src/linux


cd /boot
rm   dtb System.map-armv7 initrd-armv7 zImage-armv7
ln -s System.map-armv7-4.3.3-rah System.map
ln -s initrd-arm7-4.3.3-rah initrd-armv7
ln -s zImage-armv7-4.3.3-rah zImage-armv7
ln -s dtb-4.3.3-rah dtb

That's all I need to do correct? (believe the uImage and uinitrd not needed for banana..)


I saw notes in bug report to modify this file:
vim /home/rich/4.4.xxx_stuff/linux-4.4.xxx/arch/arm/configs/sunxi_defconfig
But I think that's just if I don't do make menuconfig and hit the option myself

I'll attempt and see if USB is better after this. If I blow the kernel config I'll just pull the sata drive off mount it on my other system and change the symbolic links back to original.

(will report back when kernel compiles up eta 8hs)

In kernel 4.3.3 I think it's this one:



CONFIG_REGULATOR_AXP20X is not set
Needs to be
3719c3719
< CONFIG_REGULATOR_AXP20X=m


(in make menuconfig: Device Drivers -> Voltage and Current Regulator Support -> X-POWERS APX20X PMIC Regulators)



Let me test and I'll report back

Thanks for the info. I was planning on installing the most recent current today but it seems that after booting the 4.3.3-armv7 kernel that my USB stick is not recognised. I did my Black Friday install from a tree on the same stick after mounting it. Happily I have not done anything to the 2.5' drive yet so I'll hold on the new install for now.

I don't know if mi problem es tu problem but I need to compile a new kernel with GPIO_SYSFS [=y] on Black Friday after I get distcc set up so I'll be interested to see how you fare.

A while back I got an install up with the bananapi.dtb on my pro so maybe its possible the other way as well but you may lose some functionality. Dunno much about this arm stuff yet. :<{

I've hung more than I've booted, finally did a workaround to install using a boot.scr in a boot directory on the 2.5' hdd instead of manually entering everything

Note that you have a BPI-M1 made by Sinovoip, not a BananaPi made by Lemaker. Not guite the same but obviously close enough to work with the dtbs intended for the Lemaker gear.

That's really good info no wonder...
make modules is still cooking... I'll update the thread in the am. (midnight on the east coast US)

Peep this

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...d-super-comput


Tapped out from St Nick's visit but looks pretty good. I just like the sata port from the banana.

ssh banana
ssh: connect to host banana port 22: No route to host

Surprise Surprise, must have dropped the ball somewhere.

Better hook up to the console and see whats up.
--Amending above to exact commands
Code:

ERROR:  No /sbin/init found on rootdev (or not mounted).  Trouble ahead.
        You can try to fix it. Type 'exit' when things are done.

/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
must be issue with initrd

looks like my initrd is considerably smaller than the stock one from current
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8955354 Dec 27 06:53 initrd-armv7-4.3.3
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5012495 Jan 10 08:42 initrd-armv7-4.3.3-rah

changed link back to the original initrd, thinking it will work since it's the same kernel version just one usb difference.

reverted all symbolic links back, it boots up again.

I think I'm not doing the initrd correctly.

mkinitrd -c -k 4.3.3-armv7-rah -f ext4 -r /dev/sda2 -m mmc_core:sunxi-mmc.ko.gz:scsi_mod:libata:libahci:libahci_platform.ko.gz:ahci_sunxi:mbcache.ko.gz:jbd2:ext4.ko.gz -u -o /boot/initrd-armv7-4.3.3-rah

Ok, UNCLE, compiling the kernel again, my attempt to pull just initrd is failing...
Thought I had the goods from here:
slackwarearm-current/source/k/configs/armv7-initrd-bananpi

But no matter I just modified the config-armv7 found here:
root@banana /home/rich/public_html/Slackware/slackwarearm/slackwarearm-current/source/k/configs

and ran this "arm/build armv7"
from here: /home/rich/public_html/Slackware/slackwarearm/slackwarearm-current/source/k

You need to grab ftp://ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwar...1.05-arm-1.txz

(and have a local copy of the tree) or maybe just k

Can be adapted from these directions: http://mindplusplus.wordpress.com/20...-raspberry-pi/

I found the answer for this for Linux 4.4 on the weekend but CONFIG_REGULATOR_AXP20X doesn't make any difference here.
I need another config option introduced in Linux 4.4 which apparently makes USB work. I will be upgrading to Linux 4.4 in -current once it's mainstream.
