Re: Raspberry Pi 3 B+ lockups

[*] (OKAY) with "arm_freq=1200" and "sdram_freq=450" --> system was running very stable - but also not very performant of course. So I assume just adding arm_freq=1200 makes it stable? If so, you could try removing arm_freq=1200 and adding "over_voltage=2" which may make it stable without affecting...

Re: STICKY: HOWTO: Create Custom HDMI modes

So far so good, the backlight switches on and it doesn't seem to fail right away. However, I am having some issues with displaying an image on the display. It always shows only the topmost line. My suspicion is that the pixel clock frequency is too high for the display. The datasheet specifies 9Mhz...

This is the sound applet menu, and clicking vc4-hdmi has absolutely no effect, other than closing the menu.

vc4-hdmi isn't a default option in that menu. Did you enable the experimental vc4 graphics driver?

Which package provides the script you reference above? rpi-update is designed for raspbian and the raspbian package is rpi-update.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ - Freeze during installation?

If you are having reliability problems can you try editing config.txt sudo nano /boot/config.txt and add to end of file: arm_freq=1000 and reboot. Does that avoid the issue? If it does can you try removing that and adding: over_voltage=1 if that doesn't help then you can increase to 2. Let us know i...

Re: RPi 3B+ Heat/CPU related improvements.

So, generally speaking, a Pi 3 B+ without heatsink still cooler than an aluminium heatsinked Pi 3B? If the heatsink is a small and sticks onto the SoC then I'd expect the Pi3+ to be much more effective. If the heatsink is large (e.g. attached to aluminium case like the FLIRC) then it's not clear an...

Conditional filters... Config.txt. Could we have a separate Pi3+ one.. in fact could you make all the different models conditional rather than ranges while you are at it. Been added to rpi-update firmware (but not in apt yet). Note: [pi3+] acts in addition to [pi3] on a pi3+. If you are using both ...

Somewhere it says that the extra current is going into the new USB/LAN chip.
Certainly some of it. EEE is supported.
If the switch you connect to supports it you save about 0.5W.

I have a question... what exactly is going on in this picture? Official fan... in the back? The fan isn't required when using PoE (or the Pi3+ generally) and will be software controlled (you can leave it turned off if you don't have thermal issues). It was included partly as the PoE HAT has the spa...

However the PREEMPT and PREEMPT_RT kernels are still showing the crash as posted above.
So are you using our kernel tree unpatched, or is that a tree modified with RT patches?
The RT patches are not supported by us and not expected to work with fiq based USB driver.

4.14 is now on the master branch of rpi-update.

I believe fkms is fixed in latest update (4.14.17). If you use this then please give it a test and report here.
I expect we'll be pushing 4.14 to default (master) branch of rpi-update this week.

Normally we run initial_turbo=60 in the config.txt, but removing it does appear to help.
Are you overclocking? Does "vcgencmd get_throttled" return a non-zero value (when booting succeeded perhaps after running something that stresses Pi).
