board: Rock64 4GB
issue: Won't boot
boot log: http://termbin.com/9stym
what I've tried: different Rock64 board. different U-Boot version. Booting from USB-thumb.

Is something wrong with the rtl8188eu, bcmdhd driver?
Can you remove the driver for the next release?
rebuilt the kernel with support for usb realtek and mediatek in the form of modules
download

I'd like to compile the image with the buildkit - on aarch64, *not* cross compile like its setup. A lot of tools used in the bashscript are x86_64 and wont execute on my computer.

Would someone be willing to compile Slackware on Ayufan's 0.6.38 kernel and upload the iso? That kernel version is what works for my rock64. Might there be small differences between boards that makes some them not boot?

At the moment, there is no such possibility, but you can compile the kernel after the download point with the usual commands make Image; make modules; make modules_install

difference only in the amount of memory, can the bootloader be written in spi?
try erasing spi

With the latest patch the slackware managed to boot up. It did a few reboots during the boot process but then I was welcomed with a login prompt. HDMI worked well. However, after plugging USB devices, HDMI and ethernet in and out the Rock64 did reboot for a unknown reason. It wont boot up anymore. The last thing it does in the boot process is mounting memorycard. Here is the log: http://termbin.com/bgpq

Edit: After running 'fsck' on the sdcard partition Slackware created/extended the /swap on first boot then after a second boot, it managed to show the login-prompt. If the power-coord is unplugged without issuing poweroff command the next boot will get stuck in the state my dmesg show. A fsck on the partition will fix the issue. Is this behaviour expected? Thanks.

and there is an installation field there is 1 start and one overload to expand the partition on the sdcard.
i have this not observed, maybe not enough good board power or with the sdcard, try to re-record the image

I hope you read my last posts edit, I managed to boot from the sdcard by fsck:ing the partition.

I'm not statisfied with having the linux-root on a memory card, USB booting is the solution! ..but booting off USB proved to be difficult: The boot.cmd is edited to mount /dev/sda1, fstab is edited to mount it as well. boot.scr is "recompiled" with mkimage as suggested in boot.cmd. The boot process fails when it tries to re-mount the linux-root. The errors varies depending on if its Ext4 or XFS, if its the first or second try. "Synchornizing SCSI cache. USB disconnect".

you do not need to recompile boot.src, you need to add the parameter rootdev=/dev/sda1 to uEnv.txt and fix it in /etc/fstab, you also need to delete the parameter data=writeback
