Bug Description

Running pandaboard RevA4, after installing ubuntu and running the install OMAP4-addon, it claims to successfully install however on reboot it goes past the splash screen and fails, the last few lines of text that appear are:

"line disc installation timed out "
and st_register failed -22

I've tried this 3 times and the same thing happens every time.

which version of Ubuntu are you using?

I can confirm, that the same happens on pandaboard ES RevB1.

- install prebuilt Unbuntu binaries
- install the OMAP-Extras
- reboot
-> X doesn't start and you are left at the console login prompt...

Ubuntu 11.10 (GNU/Linux 3.0.0-1205-omap4 armv71)

Best regards, Martin

can you plug the serial cable, and setup a serial console (see
http://omappedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_on_OMAP_FAQ#I_want_to_a_console_on_serial_connection.2C_how_do_I_do_it.3F).
you should be able to log in the serial console with your username.

then please send us the output of :

uname -a

dkms status

lsmod

and the content of /var/log/Xorg.0.log

thank you for your help Nicola. I gathered the locks, but in the meanwhile I think that the problem was a failed update before adding OMAP stuff:

i restarted installation from scratch and this time I managed to complete the package update before installing the OMAP-addons and anything worked fine this time.

i think my problem is that i'm not acquainted to the actual gnome desktop and the description in text form on http://www.omappedia.com/wiki/Ubuntu_PPA seems to be outdated for me, while the screenshot on the same page is actual.
