Raspberry 2 realtime kernel image


(Mikhail) #7

The kernel for RPi2 has been built and works.

pi@raspberrypi:~$ uname -a
Linux raspberrypi 3.18.7-rt1-v7+ #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Fri Feb 20 19:12:28 MSK 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux

I will leave it for testing for all night and if it won’t crash will upload it.


(Sebastian) #8

Great news!


(Mathew Oxenham) #9

Nice going :slight_smile: Have you tested SPI yet? I seem to have everything working on a standard raspbian distribution but SPI. (I’m using a memory map for GPIO for now, very CPU intensive tho :s from the class here https://github.com/timknapen/Raspberry/tree/master/mmapGPIO). I2C works fine, can run the LED example and the Barometer one. But the MPU and the gps are just returning 0’s or failing the gps connection test.
I’ve enabled SPI in the kernel and added the “dtparam=spi=on” to /boot/config.txt. lsmod shows the spi_bcm2708 driver loaded and spidev0.0 and spidev0.1 are showing in /dev
Its not saying it’s failing to open the device just getting null data returned from the chips. (SPI still works on the old B+)

So I suppose the question is am I missing something (probably obvious) or do I have a potential hardware issue on the PI 2


(Martin Evans) #10

Have the Raspberry 2 realtime kernel image been uploaded yet?


(Mikhail) #11

Not yet. Please give me some time to properly test everything. I’ll upload it in a day or two.


(Mikhail) #12

Patched and configured source code is in linux-rpi-rt repo on Github.
As well as instructions on how to compile it and install the new kernel.

SD image for usage with Navio and APM will be uploaded some time later together with APM port for RPi2.


(Mikhail) #13

I’ve found some problems with the rt-kernel for RPi2 - cores get locked sometimes. The release is delayed until that issue is investigated and solved.


(Vincenzo Calabrò) #14

Ehi Mikhail
I’m trying the new kernel you uploaded (I also got a new RPI2 and I want to try it), but there are a lot of problems.
The following test are relative to the RPIB+ board, but note that the same results apply for the RPI2.

First of all, all the IMU measurements are wrong (in particular all of them are 0.0)… I suspect is some library related trouble… but I think is good to know :smile:

pi@raspberrypi ~/Navio/C++/Examples/AccelGyroMag $ ./AccelGyroMag
Acc: +0.000 +0.000 +0.000 Gyr: +0.000 +0.000 +0.000 Mag: +0.000 +0.000 +0.000

To get some idea of what is happening with the kernel you prepared you may take a look to these logs:

I found your same problem with SPI :frowning:


(Mathew Oxenham) #17

Mines saying something slightly different…
[ 4.391837] bcm2708_spi 3f204000.spi: master is unqueued, this is deprecated
[ 4.450764] bcm2708_spi 3f204000.spi: SPI Controller at 0x3f204000 (irq 80)

But still not working, the B+ is listing DMA channels being assigned to SPI, whereas the PI 2 is not. It’s likely a driver issue somewhere due to the base GPIO address having to change because of the increase in memory on the PI 2.

Additional, Managed to get
[ 4.080281] bcm2708_spi bcm2708_spi.0: DMA channel 2 at address 0xf3007200 with irq 77
[ 4.095429] bcm2708_spi bcm2708_spi.0: DMA channel 4 at address 0xf3007400 with irq 20
[ 4.143685] bcm2708_spi bcm2708_spi.0: SPI Controller at 0x3f204000 (irq 80)
[ 4.158616] bcm2708_spi bcm2708_spi.0: SPI Controller running in dma mode

but still getting nulls/0’s from the SPI devices :frowning: (by adding https://github.com/notro/spi-bcm2708 to the source for the standard Raspbian distro)
Nice how it only takes an hour to compile the kernel on the PI itself now tho :smile:

edit:
Narrowing it down, it seems the status return in the transfer function in SPIdev.h is returning errno 22 (Invalid argument)

edit2:
Solved! the spi_ioc_transfer structure has changed. added…

struct spi_ioc_transfern {
__u64 tx_buf;
__u64 rx_buf;
__u32 len;
__u32 speed_hz;
__u16 delay_usecs;
__u8 bits_per_word;
__u8 cs_change;
__u8 tx_nbits;
__u8 rx_nbits;
__u16 pad;
};

to SPIdev.h and made the transfer function use that instead :smile: GPS, AccelGyroMag and AHRS are all working fine now
(that might not work with the rt kernel, but it should help with some hints)


(Vincenzo Calabrò) #19

None… actually adjusting the structure into SPIdev.h does not solve the problem. Tested with Raspberry Pi B+.

How much time it will take to have a stable new kernel for the Navio??? :frowning:

Seems like spidev compatibility was broken, very strange. Btw, it only affects C++, Python examples are working without modifications.

It’s hard to estimate when the kernel for RPi2 will be ready, maybe a couple of weeks.

Here’s the link for the new kernel version for RPi2, but it doesn’t differ much, as it also crashes on cyclictest.

rpi2-kernel-3.18.7-rt2 (WARNING! KERNEL IS NOT STABLE!)

Could you guys please install it on RPi2, install cyclistest and run:

sudo cyclictest --smp -p99 -m -n

After running that an ssh session on my RPi2 freezes in a couple of minutes and then a few seconds later the serial console freezes too. Does the same happen on yours?


(Vincenzo Calabrò) #21

Thanks for the reply. I hope you will also understand what is wrong with the C++ library. That is a serious issue :frowning:

I found some information about this issue:

http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=101380&p=702587

it seems that the whole problem is caused by the fact that the spi structure is not initialized (memset) to zero.

I will test this asap, meanwhile you can take a look to these links and if you find the solution, please let me know (and update the git repository) :smiley:

@vincenzocalabro

SPI fixed and works for me now. Please pull the changes from the github. Thanks for finding the solution!


(Vincenzo Calabrò) #23

You are welcome… as we use to say in Italy, “we are all on the same boat ;)”… hopefully Schettino is not the captain eheheh :smiley:


(Mathew Oxenham) #24

That makes sense, I’d forgotten I’d zero’d the unused variables in that structure. When I tried the structure wasn’t what the compiled kernel was saying so I left the zero’ing in and fixed the structure which made it work so assumed it was the structure change. (I guess I have some old header files lying around).
At least it working now (although possibly not so stable yet)


(Mathew Oxenham) #25

In case you are interested a couple of about 1 hour tests on the standard raspbian kernel come to…

I’m sure the RT kernel can do much better on the max values, but the average isnt too bad.


(Mathew Oxenham) #26

Ran on the PI 2 with the rt2 kernel, worked for around 40 mins then the screen went black. (using HDMI without the Navio connected and using a USB keyboard as wifi didnt seem to be functioning). Also noticed the keyboard works when booted but seems to die at some point after starting cyclictest, cpu load from cyclictest also goes from 8.5% to 108% at the same time.


(Vincenzo Calabrò) #27

Guys any news for the new kernel?


(Mikhail) #28

Well, it’s 99% ready, there is only one thing holding us - unstable work of rt kernel with usb driver on RPi2. The problem is that new RPi’s USB driver uses FIQ and it somehow causes hangs on SMP system under rt preempt, while the standard USB driver doesn’t work on Raspberry Pi 2 at all. I’ve contacted Raspberry Pi Foundation and opened an issue about the standard USB driver, hope we can work something out soon.
