From what I have read, a raspberry pi 3b should be able to boot with the boot partition’s file system either FAT16 or FAT32.
My issue is that some of my raspberry pis don’t boot unless I remake the filesystem as FAT32 and replace the files of the boot partition.
This happens with my yocto build and also the mender raspberry pi demo images found here https://docs.mender.io/2.1/getting-started/download-test-images. I’ve also tried previous versions 1.6 and 1.7.
Is there a way to set the filesystem type to FAT32 for the boot partition instead of FAT16?
Changing the mkfs call of the sdcard_image-rpi within meta-raspberrypi doesn’t seem to work since rpi-sdimg is removed from IMAGE_FSTYPES in conf/local.conf.
Where/when is the uboot.env populated with the boot partition files?
Correct me if I’m wrong, with the raspberrypi, the boot partition is rawcopy from uboot.env within mender-part-image.bbclass.
All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
My apologizes if there is a enforced forum format which I have not followed.
