Silently a new 96board starts appearing: Cello
It seems to be produced by LeMaker and is based around the AMD A1100
SoC. That's the same as on the illusive Husky, actually both boards look
very similar with only minor differences in the placement of some
The LeMaker product page has it up for preorder for 299$; with an
estimated shipping time frame of 2016Q2.
This could mean the first "cheap" 64 bit ARM server board becoming
available. Also more power: A57 cores.
Though I'm sure hrw will still disapprove as it has SATA, but is a weird
non-industry-standard form factor.
Oh, and the obligatory question:
Will it be 96boards compliant and are we going to get to see the actual
One of the goals of RPB is to follow that our changes go back
upstream. For the next RPB release, a more polished report is planned.
But to get things started, here's a sample - and to use as baseline to
compare progress for the 16.06 release. The list of packages is
collected from db410/alip image with distrodelta script. This lists
the packages that do not become from Debian (Jessie release) or Debian
New packages not in Debian:
* add UCM config file for HDMI and HiFi on DB410c
* add UCM config file for HDMI on IFC6410
* seccomp and namespace fixes
* patches to compile on arm64/armhf
* ti-connectivity (updates for HiKey):
- Include wl18xx-fw-4 firmware
- Add TIInit_11.8.32.bts for bluetooth support
* Reverting requirement for debhelper >= 9.20151220
* Upload to make it work with latest systemd:
* See kernel changes report (TBD)

I'm trying to boot kernel with u-boot on a hikey board(lemaker version).
I followed the steps of u-boot/board/hisilicon/hikey/README and everything
is OK except the kernel hangs at "Starting kernel ..."
I used the latest Image and hi6220-hikey.dtb from . And boot log is attached.
I don't know whether there is anything block the kernel to boot.
Hi Amit, Ricardo and Dev,
I have created a shell script to do stress test for 96boards Linux
build. The current script supports stress_ng, stress_network and
stress_oom. I will investigate how to stress suspend/resume once it is
Would you please give the script a review? Any comments will be
appreciated. Test log examples attached.
The following bugs have been found.
Bug 317 - [RPB] stress-ng reboots HiKey board within 10 minutes
Bug 318 - [RPB] system hangs after "ip link set wlan0 up" executed
Bug 272 - periodic 10-15sec wifi connectivity loss
I have an HiKey Early Access Board which I assume is made by CircuitCo.
I have connected it to a HDMI display and USB keyboard/mouse.
When I plug in a 12v PS, and click on the power button, after a
few seconds LED 1 lights and stays on, LED 0 flashes a couple
times and goes out.
Nothing else happens. I don't get any signal to the display.
Am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions?

So, LC BKK came and went, and now I'm back, sounding like a broken record:
- Compliance report: HiKey (CCo)
- Compliance report: HiKey (LeMaker)
- Compliance report: Dragonboard410c
- Compliance report: Bubblegum
- Compliance report: Cello
- Compliance report: Husky
- Compliance Check-List
- Other latest work (cf. mail on this list 2016-02-05T11:11)
- Anything of significance at LCBKK?
If anyone has /any/ doubt about why I'm asking for all those compliance
"Once a compliance report has been approved the vendor may use the
96Boards branding and logo according to published terms and conditions,
and the vendor product will be added to the 96Boards website(s)."
All boards mentioned above are on the website and their vendors show the
"96Boards branding and logo".
So with all due respect and excuse my french:
Reports or GTFO!
PS: Someone broke a Wordpress plugin on http://96borads.org
Ugh. The rev-c 96Boards Sensors mezzanine got shipped without a
bootloader on the ATMEGA. You'll need to flash the bootloader
yourself, or return the board to get it reflashed. (I recommend doing
it yourself. It's very simple to do).
I'm working with Seeed to get the boards shipped from the Seeed Bazaar
Here are the instructions. Do this with the Sensors board DISCONNECTED
from the baseboard.
Let me know when you've fixed your board. I'm keeping a list.
