I love Manjaro on my Pinebook Pro. But I have a problem that I can’t fix. The screen almost never turns on when you boot the first few times, it is necessary to turn on and off a considerable number of times to make the screen wake up. Does anyone know how to fix this bug?
Are you talking about laptop screen or wheel external screen? If it’s about external screen then the usb-c to hdmi drivers are experimental and not stable so it has nothing to do with Manjaro OS it is more of kernel issue.
Please share detailed information for further understanding.
It is available in the repo, we maintain bsp and mainline uboot so users can switch to their preferred uboot. sudo pacman -S uboot-pinebookpro-bsp
Will install the bsp uboot but you will have to flash it manually by following the instructions printed after installation.
Well, the bug mostly happens when I try to start from emmc, but lately it even happens if I do it from SD. I have no external screen, only the PBP’s own. I have updated Manjaro to the stable version of September 22nd, and that is happening to me since the pre-installed version when I bought it, last June. It does not depend on the version you are working with.
I’m going to install the BSP uboot, as mammbo3 advises me. I will report on the result.
My apologies if this has already been answered. I did not see it in a quick search.
According to gitlab.manjaro(dot)org/manjaro-arm/packages/core/uboot-pinebookpro-bsp/-/blob/master/PKGBUILD it would appear that you are using the v1.5 in MrFixit2001’s repo for BSP U-Boot. Is there a reason why it has not been [updated to v2.0 here: github(dot)com/mrfixit2001/updates_repo/tree/v2.0/pinebook/filesystem which seems to be what people recommend using on the Pine64 forum for BSP U-Boot?
Changing the default uboot package to BSP seems to have been the definitive solution. I have managed to start the OS several times without any problem. At last!
Thank you all very much, and especially mammbo3.
I think it would be very convenient to report this problem and this solution in this and other forums, so that other users do not have to be looking for the solution to this headache for weeks, as it has happened to me.
Thank you so much for this, genuinely thought I had a dodgy eMMC as couldn’t find alot of people having the same issues, so I’ve been using sdcard mostly. But this truly fixed it and the eMMC seems faster which again is a bonus!
If anyone else was a little cautious about the commands, I ran them against mmcblk2 (eMMC) when booting ManjaroARM from eMMC.
