VAR-SOM-MX8M-MINI: Unable to login with core-image-weston


I have followed the instructions here: Variscite VAR-SOM-MX8M-MINI : NXP i.MX 8M Mini to add mender to builds for a VAR-SOM-MX8M-MINI evaluation kit, using Variscite’s fsl-zeus branch and repo manifest imx-5.4.3-1.0.1-var01.xml.

I can successfully build and log in to core-image-minimal but for core-image-weston I think I am seeing a similar issue to what is reported in Specifically, when I enter the root username at the login prompt nothing happens when I press enter. The serial console shows repeated prints of memcg_kmem_cache_create_func.

I have not tried the patch at because it is targeted at BSP 5.4.24, is it expected to work for 5.4.3 as well?

Any assistance that you can offer in getting this work would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @chibberd I don’t expect that PR will work with the 5.4.3 BSP. It’s close but likely needs some effort.


Thanks @drewmoseley. I will wait to verify that that the changes in that PR and the discussion on Issue with Variscite VAR-SOM-MX8M-NANO resolve the related issue for the nano before looking at the changes required for the mini and 5.4.3 BSP. I’m not sure that I have the right experience to identify the required changes but am happy to help with testing either way.
