VCHIQ Not Working

Sat May 25, 2019 1:11 pm

Hello all,
I have been running BerryBoot for quite some time now, and I have noticed that when I try to launch Emulation Station it returns with 'failed to initialize VCHIQ instance.' I noticed this happening along with during the boot of BerryBoot it shows an error: 'bcm2835_vchiq 3f00b040.mailbox: Missing firmware node' for a second and then goes to the BerryBoot menu as normal. I in-coincidentally think that these 2 issues are linked, as they both started showing at around the same time.

Thanks In Advance

Hi All,
I noticed that there are around 150 Views for this post and yet no replies.
If anyone has a small idea of what this could be, please let me know.

Thanks in advance! :)

This looks like you are running a upstream DTB with a downstream kernel.

Hi,
Thanks for the help. I have managed to resolve this issue by reinstalling berryboot, but keeping the oses (they are on a seperate usb) the same. It works well now!

Thanks
