PCEngines APUx - upgrading to latest TC release?
« on: August 13, 2020, 09:57:41 AM »
Hi,

after I learned that the bootable USB/SD image from pcengines is outdated (6.4) as well as a little inconsistent (kernel from 7), I would like to give 11.1 a try.

I have a booting USB stick wich opens the serial console and produces that:

That's it. On my old Sony notebook, without console=/dev/ttyS0 in the extlinux.conf,
it boots fine and "ifconfig eth0 ..." works. On the pcengines APU2 it does not even have
a LAN device file /dev/eth<x> (had an "ls /dev" in the bootlocal.sh to check this).

So I can not access it, nor by console neither by LAN/ssh.

What would be the best way to find out what is missing? Drivers, parameters or whatever?
BTW, it has 3 LAN ports, and mybe this is interesting:

 do_IRQ: 1.55 No irq handler for vector
 do_IRQ: 2.55 No irq handler for vector
 do_IRQ: 3.55 No irq handler for vector

Thanks a lot,
