TorizonCore Issue Tracker

 

The following table contains known issues, scheduled bug fixes, and feature improvements for the TorizonCore images. The tickets are split into two major states:

  • Submitted (open): new features and bug fixes for TorizonCore versions that have not yet been released. They may be scheduled for a specific release version; not planned; or in our backlog. All of them have one of the following states:
    • Known Issue: a bug or unexpected behavior that has been reported and pending a fix. Once fixed, the status will transition to Fixed.
    • Feature Request: a new feature that may be added to a future release. Once released, the status will transition to New Feature.
  • Released (closed): new features and bug fixes for BSP versions that have already been released. All of them have one of the following states:
    • Fixed: a bug that has been fixed and released.
    • New Feature: something that didn't exist before and was added to a news release.

Any schedules are not guaranteed but reflect the current planning. The planning could be shifted due to priority changes.
Issues that are scheduled for a specific version will be integrated into the mentioned version of the BSP.

We will update this table continuously in order to always provide the latest state of our development plan.

Please see also the Toradex Embedded Linux Support Strategy to learn more about the different releases.

How to obtain the TorizonCore Images

Using the Toradex Easy Installer application in a Toradex SoM connected to the internet is the easiest and fastest way to install the latest version of TorizonCore into the device. Toradex also offers offline installers.

Issue #StatusSubjectModuleComponentsSeverity

6.0.0 (Release date: 2022-10-01)
6.0.0 quarterly release
TOR-2479Known IssueDocker info shows warnings "no swap limit support" and "no cpuset support" on Colibri iMX6ULLColibri iMX6ULLOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: On Colibri iMX6ULL, two warnings were seen when running "docker info": "WARNING: No swap limit support" and "WARNING: No cpuset support". We will enable the SWAP configuration in the kernel, and cpuset is expected since this is a single-core CPU.

TOR-2449Feature RequestAs a developer, I want to investigate if bootloader updates or kernel argument updates are required to upgrade from TC 5 to 6Verdin iMX8M Mini, Colibri iMX6ULL, Colibri iMX7, Colibri iMX6, Apalis iMX6Aktualizr, Kernel, Open Embedded

Description: The compatibility between the bootloader from TorizonCore 5 and the TorizonCore 6 is not fully determined. We plan to investigate it, as to recommend the best approach to customers on bootloader updates when they decide to upgrade TorizonCore.

Update: as of the 6.0.0 (possibly 6.0.0-devel-202210) release, it is not recommended yet to upgrade from TorizonCore 5 to TorizonCore 6.

5.7.0 (Release date: 2022-07-28)
5.7.0 LTS release. Learn more on https://www.toradex.com/news/torizon-core-release-5-7-0-quarterly-release
TOR-2398FixedChromium container fails to start in the evaluation containers on modules without GPUColibri iMX6ULL, Colibri iMX7Debian Base ContainersLow

Description: The Chromium and Cog containers were split, and HW acceleration on the GPU (rendering) enabled on Chromium. These changes have broken the startup of Portainer in our "TorizonCore with Evaluation Containers" image.

TOR-2191FixedLAVA test case for TorizonCore "weston-simple-egl" container is failing for Colibri iMX6ULL-emmcColibri iMX6ULLAutomated testingLow

Description: A test failed in our CI infrastructure due to a typo in a SoM name. This has no impact on customers and the test case works for the reported SoM.

5.7.0-devel-202205 (Release date: 2022-05-09)
5.7.0-devel-202205 monthly pre-release
TOR-2255New FeatureAs a developer, I want to release a Cog container for GPU-less SoMsColibri iMX6ULL, Colibri iMX7Debian Base ContainersLow

Description: When we integrated Cog in our kiosk-mode-browser, a bug prevented it from working on GPU-less SoMs (Colibri iMX6ULL and Colibri iMX7).

This has been fixed and it is possible to run Cog on GPU-less SoMs. Learn more on Running Cog

5.6.0-devel-202202 (Release date: 2022-02-01)
5.6.0-devel-202202 monthly pre-release
TOR-2058Feature RequestAs a developer, I want to stop providing experimental support for NAND-based modules in TorizonCoreColibri iMX6ULL, Colibri iMX7Open EmbeddedLow

Description: While Toradex has never supported raw NAND-based SoMs (the lower-end versions of Colibri iMX6ULL and Colibri iMX7 with 256/512MB of RAM), those machines were available in meta-toradex-torizon as experimental.

As we don't plan to maintain them in the future, we are dropping the experimental support to indicate that to customers that may be doing their own experimentation with a raw NAND-based SoM and TorizonCore.

Workaround: If you plan to run TorizonCore on a raw NAND device in the future, you will have to maintain your own fork of TorizonCore, either in-house or through our partners.

5.5.0-devel-202112 (Release date: 2021-12-07)

Description: On Colibri iMX6ULL, we cannot deploy custom images generated by TorizonCore Builder.

Edit: in the end, we have identified this an issue related to OSTree and U-Boot, and have fixed it with a patch in our OpenEmbedded layer meta-toradex-torizon. No changes were applied to TorizonCore Builder.

TOR-803FixedChromium does not render page when Weston is started with pixmanColibri iMX6ULL, Colibri iMX7Debian Base ContainersLow

Description: On modules without GPU support such as Colibri iMX7 or Colibri iMX6ULL the Wayland compositor Weston is started with Pixman renderer. It seems that Chromium currently does not render properly when Weston is using Pixman renderer.

Workaround: Use Weston with Mesa software OpenGL (rebuild the Debian Weston base container and drop the `--use-pixman` flag in entry.sh).
