(slackwarearm-current) New Version of U-boot and ext4 issues


Decided to update my bananaPiPro today from 14.2 to current HF version.
I encountered issues with u-boot recognizing the ext4 partition.

below is the messages encountered:

I googled around and found maybe changing some options to no avail..

Might need to roll back uboot... Anyone have suggestions? I'll try some things and report back too.

This is the version I'm using on my Banana Pi (not a pro) and it works fine reading from the ext4 partition.

The old u-boot is archived here, so perhaps try that one again.

Works 100% with the older u-boot
--I will note the only difference this time is I zeroed out my sd card first, before I zcat the image.
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk0

--I'll test the more current version of u-boot again to double check after zeroing the sd again. (Maybe in after sleep.)

(thanks so much for steering me to the uboot archive)

Good to know. I'll update them again at some point closer to 15.0's release.

I reverted to the 2016 version of u-boot, as I found that the 2017 version didn't work so well on one of my Banana Pi's. I couldn't get USB keyboard working. I doubt that a newer version of U-Boot is required at this point anyway, so I'll probably leave it as-is until something breaks.
