[SOLVED] Video display not working, via rockpro64

I followed the wiki on rockpro64:

https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/ROCKPro64_ … ses#Debian

However this error happens:

https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/ROCKPro64# … _on_Debian

How do I fix this?

I see the guide, but if I can't get a video display, how the frick do I  fix this issue by doing this:

echo governor_simpleondemand >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
update-initramfs -u -k $(uname -r)

I mean if I can't even see the display, then how can I even do that.

Answers anyone? Could use them.

Re: [SOLVED] Video display not working, via rockpro64

the guide assumes you can login via serial to perform corrective action

these might provide food for thought

Re: [SOLVED] Video display not working, via rockpro64

I guess then, do I really need that serial console to get video output? And what do I need to make it function properly period.

Thoughts?

I don't have a usb serial console currently as a heads up.

Re: [SOLVED] Video display not working, via rockpro64

have you had video success with any other distributions(thinking hardware-check here)?

say(random-pick) perhaps TwisterOS?

If you have the disk image you can mount that on som other system and run that update command there. Or even patch the initrd directly (unpack, patch, pack).

Oh, well I don't know how to do this currently... patching initrd directly, etc on another system.

Although, I won't have access till friday or later.

I have not tried any other distro yet though.

Actually, I think I found out why I kept failing... I forgot to make an unused partition with 30MB

Re: [SOLVED] Video display not working, via rockpro64

Would not making an unused partition with 30MB cause it not to boot properly? meaning no display?

Seems that was the problem, I only used 99% of the disk and I had no issues from there.
