PineTab2 install


Progress 6/26/23

Make sure you have the USB to UART board, a USB A to C cable, your micro SD, and micro-hdmi to whatever your external monitor wants.


get img from https://dl.slarm64.org/slackware/images/quartz64/

e.g.,
slarm64-current-aarch64-server-quartz64-4.19.193-build-20220707.img.zst

On my Slackware15 laptop (for ref: 86_64 AMD Ryzen 7 5700U ) microSD (128G) in adaptor which detects as /dev/sda

dd if=slarm64-current-aarch64-server-quartz64-4.19.193-build-20220707.img.zst of=/dev/sda
( careful with the device name... don't bork your working computer )


insert microSD in PT2

Set the switch on UART board to 'SD boot'
and then insert in bottom slot with pinecone and usbc sockets facing you

connect usb cable to bottom USiC on UART board (in my situation laptop to uart)
Start 'screen' or minicom with /dev/ttyUSB0 1500000
e.g., screen /dev/ttyUSB0 1500000

boot PT2 (only a slight short puch of the power button is needed, not 2 sec)
wait and watch for boot info

This device is simply not on the list.

This is new territory for me. Is the DTS chip-specific (RK3566), device-specific (PT2) and could I find it in the shipped OS, or maybe
somewhere in https://wiki.t-firefly.com/en/ROC-RK...x_compile.html

BTW https://wiki.t-firefly.com/en/ROC-RK3566-PC/debug.html has a summary of the ttyUSB settings.

I updated the images, for pinetab2 to work correctly, it is necessary to replace rk3566-quartz64-a.dtb with rk3566-pinetab2.dtb on the mmcblk0p1 section in the uEnv.txt file.

setback (battery?)

setback. PT2 only boots with power to lower USB (seems like UART board does not passthru power)... even though battery indicator says 100% in DanctNix, PT2 shuts down when power cable is removed. Could be a bad battery or power control circuit? Not sure how to proceed. I did let it run to empty battery once.

No RX on UART board... should this work with DanctNix?

Maybe time to order another UART board.

Updates 6/30/23:

1) reinstalled factory image and battery seems to take full charge and run for hours

2) From pine64 sales "Serial debugging board for PINETAB2 will be available for sale around mid-late July 2023."

3) question, can I just use a pair of aliexpress.com/item/1005005324791017.html and would I cross TX<->RX?

Slarm Pinetab2 ethernet

I have a BENFEI USB to Ethernet Adapter, USB 3.0 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Network Adapter
(detects on DanctNix and works ok)

Can I add (to the rc.modules.local in any of the slarm images)

modprobe r8152 r8153_ecm usbnet
dhcpcd eth0

and then ssh in?

why not, you can also add to /etc/modprobe.d/

5800a000.ethernet eth0: stmmac_hw_setup: DMA engine initialization failed

No joy ... the modules load (put lsmod in rc.modules.local) and then I get

stuff about stmac DMA engine initialization failed

interface won't start with dhcpcd
or static with ifconfig eth0


here it is:

no USB networking joy,

Tried a 'known-to-work' usb-usb between laptop and PT2.
put ifconfig usb0 10.0.0.3 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
in rc.local on PT2

and same with 10.0.0.1 on laptop

PT2 says " SIOCSIFADDR: no such device "
" usb0 ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device"

tried upper and lower USB on PT2

Cable detects as 067b:25a1 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL25A1 Host-Host Bridge
on x86 laptop

added on PT2 to rc.local


echo modprobe
/sbin/modprobe plusb cdc_ether usbnet
/usr/bin/ls /sys/class/net
echo modprobe

echo before usb
/sbin/ifconfig usb0 10.0.0.3 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
echo after

/usr/bin/ls /sys/class/net


both times /sys/class/net
returned eth0 lo


would this all be more likely to work if those modules were in the initrd?

they should have loaded automatically, rebuild the init by running /boot/rebuild-initrd.sh and adding the necessary modules:
Code:
select kernel: 5.10.110
kernel: 5.10.110
select modules: ext4:xfs:btrfs:plusb:cdc_ether:usbnet

Remember, I can't get a shell. My UART seems to have gone silent, the wired and wireless usb dongles don't detect and the Host-Host usb isn't workng, so I have been popping the microSD into my x86 laptop to alter the rc files.

Could I add the rebuild instructions to rc.local in PT2 and then reboot ?
