RPI 4: issues with USB3-mounted root partition [SOLVED]

I cloned the root partition from the sd card to an SSD. The SSD resides in an enclosure with an USB 3 interface. Copying and regular files operations work fine. Now, when I boot by pointing to the SSD partition for / the boot process is very slow and several seemingly unrelated services fail (e.g. h...

Use fbset to create a new one.
Thanks for the response. I am using fbset. That's what worked in the past. It doesn't anymore. I reported the issue on github.

Re: Composite screen cannot be woken up

I suggest you try loading a fresh copy of that on a different SD card as the bug may have been fixed. Thanks for your comment. Even though I didn't believe that a distribution change would be an adequate measure to approach the issue I did it. I switched from a Pi 2b to a Pi 3b and set everything u...

Composite screen cannot be woken up

I just upgraded from jessie to stretch. On boot the screen comes up normally but I cannot wake it up after putting it to sleep with "tvservice -o". The screen wakes up but only black is shown. It used to work under jessie. The syslog shows this: Jul 20 22:21:53 badboy vncserver-x11[492,root]: Consol...

Perfect. Thank you, the 's' options work. The only remaining issue is that I cannot query the screen's state when I disable dpms. I'll experiment some more.

Re: Kernel panic intepretation help needed

I believe this only changes the behaviour of the kernel once it is running, not the boot process. It makes sense. Enabling USB boot is something that is done once and sticks, disabling SD boot for good would be undesirable for most (unless we're talking hardening, but that's something for a differe...

It's as simple as adding an entry to /boot/config.txt and rebooting.
Thanks. For clarification: the boot process still checks the SD card first, even if it is disabled and only polling gets disabled? If USB booting fails I can still pop in a working SD card?

That's an interesting perspective. fstab doesn't reference any SD card partitions.

How would one disable the SD interface? How would this be reversible?

Cold boot vs. reboot

Cold USB booting (from no power) works, rebooting fails. Reproducible. I already activated the additional delay ('program_usb_boot_timeout=1' in config.txt) but that doesn't help. What else can I try? (Using an SD card with a cmdline that points to /dev/sda2 is my current workaround.)
