gargoyle_1.13.x-ath79-generic-wd_mynet-n750 fails to boot after power cycle

Post by Chrushev »

Runs 1.12.x without noticeable issues. Upon loading 1.13.x router boots up, but after a power cycle fails to come up. Cant SSH into it either.

Here are the logs from 1.13.x: https://pastebin.com/5TxUmxst

1.12.x working for comparison: https://pastebin.com/NiXnMgZ1

above has dmesg, logread, df-h

Do get this error upon first loading into a freshly flashed unit. Am flashing without preserving settings.

But error goes away upon switching pages. Also is back when flashing the working 1.12.x as well even though I am flashing without preserving settings. Does not come back on 1.12.x when I do a restore defaults.

Other issues with WD MyNet n750 and Gargoyle is that out of the 4 LEDS on the front only the Power LED is lit up. The Internet connection, Wifi and WPS LEDS are always dark.

:idea: The problem will probably be here:

Code: Select all

Fri Apr  9 06:45:21 2021 kern.warn kernel: [  118.291209] overlayfs: upper fs does not support tmpfile.
Fri Apr  9 06:45:21 2021 daemon.info mount_root: performing overlay whiteout
Fri Apr  9 06:45:21 2021 daemon.info mount_root: syncronizing overlay
Fri Apr  9 06:45:22 2021 daemon.err mount_root: failed to sync jffs2 overlay
Probably something happened to the mtdblock7 partition (/overlay) and it will have a read-only flag.

To be sure - run the mount command and please paste the listing here.

Nothing too concerning in the logs.
A few reports of the same behaviour on the same device on the OpenWrt forums however, so maybe some kind of regression.
Needs a serial console to know exactly what has failed.

Found a serial cable, here is the ouput, looks like the flashing process is corrupt. After a cold boot checksum fails. You can see me here flashing it then on line 380 power cycling:

PS - summited the ticket on github, probably easier to track bugs there?
