[fedora-arm] Re: no /dev/mtd* devices in Fedora 40 beta on Rock 5B

Hi there,

on my system I've written the EDK2 image to the SPI via a second boot based on a Armbian Image.



PS: yes the availibility of /dev/mtdblock* would be fine. Much better is a UBoot image that comes direct with fedora like other ARM-Systems (Pinebook Pro).

I have my Rock 5B booting Fedora 40 Beta on NVMe, using EDK2 on an SD card.  I would like to flash the EDK2 image to SPI, but this requires access to  /dev/mtdblock* devices.  There appear to be none.    Could this be related to the ACPI vs DTB setting in the EDK2?  
  It could be that, it could be also that edk2 doesn't expose the mtd  devices as EDK2 treats them as owned by the firmware but then I don't  know if edk2 for that platform would support something like EFI  capsule updates.    
Fedora 40 Beta will not boot in DTB mode, and possibly this is required  for automatically creating /dev/mtdblock* devices.  
  I am purely looking at supporting the Rock5B with a U-Boot firmware  stack so that's where I am testing, the problem with ACPI on this  platform is that the vast majority of the drivers don't currently  support ACPI so even if the mtd is in the ACPI tables the drivers may  not support it.  --  _______________________________________________  arm mailing list -- arm@lists.fedoraproject.org  To unsubscribe send an email to arm-leave@lists.fedoraproject.org  Fedora Code of Conduct: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/project/code-of-conduct/  List Guidelines: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines  List Archives: https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/arm@lists.fedoraproject.org  Do not reply to spam, report it: https://pagure.io/fedora-infrastructure/new_issue
