[Linux Kernel] Bug Report

Postby THaase » Fri Aug 09, 2019 9:17 am

I've started now a new thread about bugs in the Linux Kernel .....
Looks like I've found one ....

As I've run out of RTC Boards (sell the relatively seldom) I decided to assemble some more ....
Assembled two - both not working .... another 3 ones .. also not working .... well either I'm too dump to solder or I've got RTC Chips without Die ....

So I've tested my old (known working) 1.2 RTC Board - same - not working!

So I've done some regression testing - release_20190119 is working while release_20190206 isn't working anymore.
This is according to: m41t8x

Wanted to have a look to the changes to the linux kernel, but I' a little bit lost in the naming scheme for the git tags :-)

@Sorgelig: Can you tell me which belongs to the versions mentioned above? Than I can have a look (OK, maybe you have an idea already)

the driver is not for m41t8x. x must be a specific number (check the schematics PDF). Differerent x - different driver.

Sorry not to be preceise enougth - it's M41T81 chip.
(Can't provide kernel log at the moment - sorry - not even in the area to my MiSTer - Monday again)

I'm just lost with your tag naming - eg. release_20190119 (Linux Image of this release is working), but your tag names are:

v4.12-rc5
v4.12-rc4
v4.12-rc3
v4.12-rc2
v4.12-rc1
v4.11

and so on ..... I'm missing the association between tag and release name.
So is linux kernel tag v4.11 or maybe v412-rcX part of the release of 20190119?

Yes I can check the date of the checkins to get a rough idea but normally I'm working slightly different.

Kernel source is forked from socfpga repo which is forked from official Linux repo.
So code includes all Linux tags. They are not mine.

And the master branch for MiSTer is called.. surprise! "socfpga-4.19-MiSTer" :)

In the beginning of 2019 i've moved from 4.5 to 4.19. socfpga-4.5 is the old branch and is still available in the same repo.

Yeah,
rebaseing brings a lot of checkin's with it :-) - I know ....

OK, I'll give it a try with git bisect and try to figure out _your_ tags / checkins before :-)
config file for MiSTer should be a good starting point checking the logs in detail.

:-) Belive me :-) - I did know :-)
