This section is incomplete and is being revised.
This page will contain a list of issues that were known at the time of the kit’s release, providing links to issue trackers where relevant.
A list of issues with the development kit itself can found using this link to open devkit issues.
- Development boards shipped before 2019-01-15 have a non-functioning display (see linux-emcraft issue 5). This issue has since been resolved and can be fixed by reflashing the software on the board – see Flashing the System Image for instructions. This update can also be applied to boards shipped after this date. See Diagnosing LCD Problems if you have problems with the display.
- The sshd daemon can take up to 480 seconds to start after boot – see linux-emcraft issue 2 for details.
- The Bluetooth audio interface is incorrectly connected, making it unlikely to work. In addition, software support for this feature is missing in the driver. See dvk-mx8m-bsb issue 3 for details.
- When running older versions of the system software the board could reset when under heavy load, either due to processor-intensive software or peripherals that draw large currents. See Spurious Resets for possible workarounds for this behavior.
