Armadeus 7.0 Troubleshots
4.17 kernels random crashes
- Due to NXP specifications changes, 4.17 kernel seems to have some problems when using CPU frequency scaling and/or i.MX6ULL at full speed (900MHz). Consequences are random kernel crashes with stack overflow/memory problems. For these reasons we recommend everyone using this kernel/release and i.MX6ULL to add a patch in patches/linux/4.17/.
This patch can be found in latest git tree:
- Then we also recommend to de-activate CPU frequency scaling on i.MX6ULL and fix operating frequency (to put somewhere in your app starting script, here frequency is fixed to 900MHz):
