desktop gone after sudo apt upgrade

This is what’s on a 16GB MicroSD card
‘’‘bone-debian-10.9-lxqt-armhf-2021-04-27-4gb.img.xz’’’
Information about this:

debian@beaglebone:~$ uname -a
Linux beaglebone 4.19.94-ti-r62 #1buster SMP PREEMPT Sat Apr 24 00:27:24 UTC 2021 armv7l GNU/Linux

BeagleBoard.org Debian Buster LXQt Image 2021-04-27
debian@beaglebone:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description:    Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
Release:        10
Codename:       buster

Change the passwords and then expand the file system

sudo /opt/scripts/tools/grow_partition.sh
sudo reboot 

I’ve attached dmesg output as DMESG-1.txt
Desktop is still there since now I can do:

debian@beaglebone:~$ sudo apt update 
debian@beaglebone:~$ sudo apt upgrade

So what happened?
It appears to go south here:

[    1.760395] pinctrl-single 44e10800.pinmux: pin PIN108 already requested by ocp:A15_pinmux; cannot claim for 0-0070

DMESG-2.txt (24.1 KB)

And now my desktop is gone. I can still get in via puTTY and grab dmesg attached as DMESG-2.txt

sudo /opt/scripts/tools/update_kernel.sh 

Regards,

Thank you. That worked. I’ll add it to my building up a beagle document. Is there a way so that apt upgrade does this automatically? Either tests for kernel version and won’t run until it’s upgraded or does it automatically?

I broke bb-cape-overlays on v4.19.x when fixing it for v5.4.x and v5.10.x

Just lock it…

sudo apt-mark hold bb-cape-overlays

It’s not getting upgraded anymore, as i’ve moved to Kernel “overlays”…

Regards,

On the 19th of September you had posted to someone else having the same problem to apt update and upgrade and reboot.

This bit of not upgrading anymore? I’m puzzled why the instructions for the BBB keep changing. How many books have now been made useless by stopping bb-cape-overlays? How many 10’s of thousands of man hours are now being tossed in the trash or wasted looking for solutions?

So is
sudo apt-mark hold bb-cape-overlays
supposed to be done before sudo apt update or before sudo apt upgrade? Or after? Or does the kernel need to be updated first?
It was after reflashing the 16Gb MicroSD for the 7th time, backing up one operation each time, before I decided I wasn’t doing anything wrong and asked for help.
And again, why isn’t there something in the update or upgrade script that either warns or announces the issue. Why doesn’t apt upgrade also update the kernel with a request as to which one we’d like? That would have prevented this problem.

Just curious.

it’s an ABI problem… The kernel keeps changing, over time, I’ve “dropped” support for v4.1.x, v4.4.x, and v4.9.x from bb-cape-overlays… Most users didn’t notice this as it was just assuming v4.14.x+ drivers… However after v5.9.x was released there was a major ABI change in mainline effectually breaking “all” pinmux’ing…

Drew changed this one bit: kernel/git/stable/linux.git - Linux kernel stable tree as he’s been working on making config-pin work with a mainline solution…

This effectually stopped bb-cape-overlay from working on 5.9.x+ built kernels.

My workaround is to “move”

to kernel specific versions:

So “while” this effectually ends the “bb-cape-overlay” package as built-binary, it’s source is still much alive.

My mistake was when back-porting other device tree fixes into the bb-cape-overlay project i broke our older v4.19.x kernel on BeagleBoard.org - latest-images

While i have a new snapshot here: Index of /rootfs/bb.org/testing/2021-10-01

Do i now “break” all “v4.19.x” users who i just fixed? idk…

yeah now i wish i had created a meta package to handle this… i can add this now, but it’s still too late for older images…

Regards,

Done:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install bbb.io-kernel-4.19-ti-am335x

Simple question. What is ‘ABI’

Generic: Application binary interface - Wikipedia
