Hey Mara (sndwvs),

Would it be possible to upload and distribute your images via sourceforge or osdn? Both these services allow easy upload and download of files.

sf: https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/docu...or%20Download/
osdn: https://osdn.net/docs/FileStorage_Guide

When I try download directly from http://dl.fail.pp.ua its usually quite slow for me (b/w 20 - 50 kbps), so it takes hours to download.

Thanks.

Current installation is on kernel 4.4.206.

I was having frequent wifi disconnects. Turns out I forgot to uninstall wicd which I had installed for testing. It seems to interfere with the rc.inet1 wifi step. After uninstalling not facing the wifi disconnect issue.

dmesg gives some errors about network:

Code:
[ 2770.265098] CFG80211-ERROR) wl_cfg80211_event : 
[ 2770.265098] dhd_conf_set_country: set country ALL, revision 0
[ 2770.265114] Event handler is not created
[ 2770.265655] CONFIG-ERROR) dhd_conf_set_bufiovar: country setting failed -2
[ 2770.266153] Country code: US (US/0)
[ 2770.272690] CONFIG-ERROR) dhd_conf_set_intiovar: txbf setting failed -23
To set country code, installed crda and iw packages. After that I am able to set wireless region via wpa_supplicant.conf as well as on command line using iw.

Have not been able to set it by default in the kernel, still checking how to do that. This link was helpful:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...gs-4175559295/

Will check how wifi works with the 5.4.6 kernel.

On the 5.4.6 kernel, the WIFI does not work for me, but the NVME SSD ADATA 8200 Pro works correctly, which is more important at the moment

Linux 5.4.6 first impressions

Some observations with Linux 5.4.6:

Improvements:
* HDMI works out of the box!
* System feels more responsive.

Regressions:
* Wifi does not work as reported Mara. Get the following in dmesg:

Code:
[   17.639886] brcmfmac: brcmf_fw_alloc_request: using brcm/brcmfmac43456-sdio for chip BCM4345/9
[   17.693921] brcmfmac mmc0:0001:1: Direct firmware load for brcm/brcmfmac43456-sdio.radxa,rockpi4.txt failed with error -2
[   18.747583] brcmfmac: brcmf_sdio_htclk: HT Avail timeout (1000000): clkctl 0x50
[   19.759043] brcmfmac: brcmf_sdio_htclk: HT Avail timeout (1000000): clkctl 0x50
It looks like a configuration issue. Will search and see if I can find something.

* USB 3 top port works in OTG mode by default, so attached devices dont show up.
Workaround: set it to host mode in device tree config: https://forum.radxa.com/t/mainline-s...ockpi-4/131/49

Requests / suggestions:

* Please add crda and iw for wireless configuration. Get message in log about it:

Code:
[   17.585708] platform regulatory.0: Direct firmware load for regulatory.db failed with error -2
[   17.585718] cfg80211: failed to load regulatory.db
Thanks!

Thanks sndwvs for the quick fixes! Will test it out.

Another improvement with Linux 5.4 is that the system seems more responsive, even running off a SD card.

Thanks.

Hey sndwvs,

Request you to add following packages:

l/newt
n/libqmi
n/libmbim

Code:
# nmtui
nmtui: error while loading shared libraries: libnewt.so.0.52: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
After installing newt package, am able to connect NetworkManager to Wifi using command line.

In syslog I noticed message about ModemManager failing:

Code:
Jan 18 08:55:33 rock-pi-4 dbus-daemon[709]: [system] Activating service name='org.freedesktop.ModemManager1' requested by ':1.52' (uid=0 pid=1598 comm="/usr/sbin/NetworkManager ") (using servicehelper)
Jan 18 08:55:33 rock-pi-4 dbus-daemon[709]: [system] Activated service 'org.freedesktop.ModemManager1' failed: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 127
On testing, found that ModemManager requires the libqmi and libmbim libraries.

Code:
# ModemManager 
ModemManager: error while loading shared libraries: libqmi-glib.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

# ModemManager 
ModemManager: error while loading shared libraries: libmbim-glib.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
To connect to networks graphically, I first connect to them via command line using nmtui, and afterwards it works via tray icon too. Will report if I find easier way.
Edit- check #58.

Thanks!

Found issue with Networkmanager graphical tray: it was not able to ask for password and was failing!

Code:
Dec 29 08:00:19 rock-pi-4 dbus-daemon[922]: [session uid=1000 pid=920] Activating service name='org.freedesktop.secrets' requested by ':1.23' (uid=1000 pid=955 comm="nm-applet ")
Dec 29 08:00:19 rock-pi-4 dbus-daemon[922]: [session uid=1000 pid=920] Activated service 'org.freedesktop.secrets' failed: Process org.freedesktop.secrets exited with status 127
On searching, found that a library was missing:

Code:
$ gnome-keyring-daemon --start --components=secrets
gnome-keyring-daemon: error while loading shared libraries: libcap-ng.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
After installing l/libcap-ng NetworkManager graphical tray worked.

Makes networkmanager and whole system unresponsive.

Searching for a solution and avoiding wifi for now.
Looks to be an upstream issue (same chip): https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/3155

Will try the firmware mentioned in one of the upstream reports and see if it helps.
