firmware update killed the system

Post by AndrewZ »

I have OrangePi PC and after a few months of successful operation I tried 'Update firmware' from dietpi-config. That ended up with no network, no HDMI state, so I had to re-install from scratch.

So at the moment I have

Code: Select all

$ uname -a
Linux DietPi 3.4.113-sun8i #18 SMP PREEMPT Thu Jun 15 02:16:06 CEST 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux
Is the update process broken or should I run it manually or should not run at all? Is 3.4.113 the latest kernel available for that platform?

OrangePi: Is the update process broken
Hi,

Thanks for the report.

Yes, its broken currently, we'll get that fixed for v155. Please avoid using the firmware update feature of DietPi-Config until then.

Currently, OPi boards are based on ARMbian. Kernel updates are provided through their repo and apt. You can upgrade (if not already running latest) with:

Code: Select all

apt-get dist-upgrade
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.
