Pinebook Pro Manjaro launch problems

My PBP was reinstalled with fresh Manjaro distro 2 hours ago via manjaro flasher. After it PBP started to main OS screen with amber LED color, but in process it was this message with:

htt ps:// (remove space character after htt)

Also, it was with blinking at the bottom of the screen. Previuos version of Manjaro, when PBP just arrived, had not this artifacts and text. Is this normal? How to fix it? Why LED is amber?
By the way, I have a problem with boot from cd, I need to stop this screen, type "boot’ and after it OS at SD card starts (but not always).

On newer uboots, yes, this is normal.

It’s a bug in uboot that has not been fixed yet.

The LED is amber during uboot, to indicate it’s still not booted into the kernel.

This often happens if you do reboots. If you shutdown and power on instead, it boots from SD card every time (in my experience).

Unfortunately not working. It booted from SD only first time after reinstall, now is not. Are there any options at the boot screen to boot from SD?

No. It should boot off the SD card, if the SD card has a valid boot script on it’s first partition.

I don’t know, what I can do extra to my actions:

  1. get the original image from official website
  2. flash sd card by balena
  3. plug it to PBP
  4. push the button
  5. fail, launch Manjaro, but not OS flashed to SD

It was booted from this SD first time, why I can’t do this now? 3 times reinstall boot SD, nothing changes…

What do you currently have on the eMMC?

What OS and what u-boot?

Manjaro, last version


So you flashed Manjaro 21.08 on the eMMC?

Please post the content of your /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf then.

FDT /dtbs/rockchip/rk3399-pinebook-pro.dtb
APPEND initrd=/initramfs-linux.img console=ttyS2,1500000 root=PARTUUID=452e5522-bd8c-41fa-a40f-8dc9a81d5f05 rw rootwait quiet splash plymouth.ignore-serial-consoles

Is that the extlinux.conf of the SD card?

No, eMMC, live OS on my PBP

I need the one from the SD card. :slight_smile:

There are no extlinux or somthing like that, only

That is not a 21.08 Manjaro image then.

What image did you flash to the SD card?

That’s right, Manjaro already on PBP, and I try to launch Kali from SD, but can’t (first time was success).

What’s the content of the boot.scr file?

Can’t copy first string, unknown symbols can’t be pasted.

Here is without first string


setenv macaddr da 19 c8 7a 6d f4

part uuid ${devtype} ${devnum}:${bootpart} uuid
setenv bootargs console=tty1 console=ttyS2,1500000 root=PARTUUID=${uuid} rw rootwait video=eDP-1:1920x1080@60
setenv fdtfile rk3399-pinebook-pro.dtb

if load ${devtype} ${devnum}:${bootpart} ${kernel_addr_r} /boot/Image; then
if load ${devtype} ${devnum}:${bootpart} ${fdt_addr_r} /boot/${fdtfile}; then
fdt addr ${fdt_addr_r}
fdt resize
fdt set /ethernet@fe300000 local-mac-address “[${macaddr}]”
if load ${devtype} ${devnum}:${bootpart} ${ramdisk_addr_r} /boot/initramfs-linux.img; then
# This upstream Uboot doesn’t support compresses cpio initrd, use kernel option to
# load initramfs
setenv bootargs ${bootargs} initrd=${ramdisk_addr_r},20M ramdisk_size=10M
booti ${kernel_addr_r} - ${fdt_addr_r};

It looks like it should work, but you will need to ask the Kali people for further clarification.

Can’t help you further. :frowning:

Ok, anyway thanks a lot for help!)
