我嘅Rock64歷程

前幾日買咗個Rock64,4GB RAM,AArch64/ARMv8,幾好用,算係刷新我對ARM嘅概念,Well,sorry for being an x86 fanboy。

不過我原意係諗住同我個External USB 3.0 2TB WD MyPassport combo一齊用做一個Ghetto NAS。我買咗隻Closure,冇錯就係淘寶賣40蚊人仔果隻,質量唔錯,不過絕對冇散熱功能,裝埋Heatsink照樣66C average。


點知今日搞咗個大龍鳳。(雖然主因係我戇居)

我之前攞咗隻4GB Class 4嘅SD card做booting card裝OMV,雖然有folder2ram但係我都係覺得慢,更何況我之後會裝好多software(包括將呢個blog transfer過去屋企嘅Rock64,除此之外仲有Seafile同Node, Java…順便玩下ARM Docker),所以boot to USB志在必行,畢竟我試過USB3可以有100MB/s嘅peak value,相對來講穩定過3MB/s嘅sdcard好多。

而USB boot嘅必要條件就係要用UBoot。而為咗UBoot,今日都嘥咗唔少時間。雖然官方Image已經自帶SPI flasher,我以為就咁success完,Reboot,Profit。Okay啦,點知reboot咗都係見到sdcard做rootfs,先前我已經諗住用fsarchiver backup一次sdcard再restore落我個128GB嘅EXT4 partition到,點知都係發覺唔得,一直boot唔到。最後都係唔知道死因,但我極度懷疑係folder partition所致。咁我唯有last resort,先將NAS啲content backup出嚟,然後直接Erase HDD。好彩唔係有好多嘢(另一個諗法係我好彩未擺file住,問題係我啲Repo同Plugin要重set)。跨過咗心理難關之後我決定咗禁Etcher嘅Flash制,裝返落去Rock64…一切安好。你個頭。

Reset咗Rock64之後,屌你HDMI無畫面嘅???

😵係咪我裝錯Brick Q咗個Rock64?係咪要我access serial睇boot log?究竟發生咩事。為咗”Recover” SPI boot,我決定咗又Erase埋個backup sdcard。Flash完,照舊冇HDMI out,而我戇居居就咁”debug”咗兩個鐘。

最後估下點解又得返?

我懷著賭博嘅心態,我攞咗條連Router嘅CAT6駁落去Rock64嘅Ethernet到,發現有DHCP同SSH,連上去睇睇,OpenMediaVault!!!!????WHAT THE FUCKKKKKKK???

搞咗咁Q耐原来比佢fake鳩咗!!!!!!😥

但係,屌你最後個HDMI呢???

所以話,呢個真係我戇居,唔識兜下圈子。雖然人蠢無藥醫,但係到呢家我都係無HDMI output…雖然我唔需要HDMI但係至少俾我睇睇bootlog好無😫。

轉左USB3速度都唔錯嘅,不過唔可以保證Small block IO,不過我已經好夠用,畢竟我個HDD擺咗咁耐要物盡其用😄。
