Torizon OS Issue Tracker

 

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

  • Submitted (open): new features and bug fixes for Torizon OS 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.

TOR-3383Feature RequestEnable support for the ExFAT file system on Torizon OSAll supported modulesKernel

Description: Enable the kernel option for the ExFAT file system.

TOR-3373Feature RequestChange default systemd-timesync interval to a long valueNot applicableOpen Embedded

Description: When there is no sync to NTP servers for a while, the systemd-timesync saves the current time to a file, to guarantee the systems continues roughly monotonic on reboots. This is explained on the systemd doc for timesyncd.conf, timesyncd.conf.d — Network Time Synchronization configuration files.

The default frequency is 60 seconds, which means there is a write operation to the flash very often. Therefore, the default value is overridden in Torizon OS to increase this frequency to 3600 seconds.

TOR-3339New Featureqemuarm64/genericx86-64 dont have serial numbersOpen Embedded

Description: The serial number is being appended to machine name to be able to have a unique device name for toradex machines. The serial number is being read out from /proc/device-tree/serial-number, but qemuarm64 and genericx86-64 machines dont have it, so currently the unique device name is not supported on these machines. A solution could be using partuuid (hexadecimal digits) of the root disk and translate it to a 8 decimal digits, since we have only one root partition and it's different for a specific build.

TOR-3336New FeatureAs a developer, I want genericx86-64 could be run by runqemuOpen Embedded

Description: Currently we are supporting two machines qemuarm64/genericx86-64 along with toradex machines. qemuarm64 could be run by qemu: ``` $ runqemu qemuarm64 ``` but genericx86-64 could not. in OE kirkstone branch, it's already supported with qemu-ovmf, like this: ``` $ runqemu genericx86-64 ovmf ``` maybe we should consider support it?

TOR-3065New FeatureAs a developer, I want to investigate what is missing related to VPU-enabled GStreamer support in TorizonCore for SoMs that use the Hantro VPU in BookwormVerdin iMX8M Mini, Verdin iMX8M PlusDebian Base Containers, Debian Packages

Description: TorizonCore lacks some Debian packages that would allow you to use VPU-enabled GStreamer pipelines for Verdin iMX8M Mini and Verdin iMX8M Plus, that use the Hantro VPU. In this task, we investigate which NXP packages we miss and list what Debian packages must be created by Toradex to support it.

Note that Apalis/Colibri iMX6 already have upstream support for VPU acceleration, and Apalis iMX8, Apalis iMX8X and Colibri iMX8X are also supported downstream, the latter with instructions provided on How to use GStreamer on TorizonCore.

Workaround: While it isn't a trivial thing to do, you could start from our instructions for i.MX 8 and add/build the missing NXP packages directly in a Dockerfile.

TOR-3063New FeatureAs a user, I want public documentation on how to build a TorizonCore image with Secure Boot, so I can leverage the basic chain of trust on my productsNot applicableOpen Embedded

Description: Toradex supports Secure Boot on TorizonCore. For you to be able to leverage this feature, comprehensive documentation is provided on the article Secure Boot on TorizonCore.

TOR-2957FixedOffline sync updates broken in TorizonCore 6AktualizrLow

Description: Offline sync updates are not working on TorizonCore 6. Even though both OS and application updates are installed, the process is never concluded and after the reboot with the new OS version, the application is never started.

Update: this bug has been fixed. As a side-effect, in case a rollback happens during a synchronous offline update, the newer application container image is not removed from the system, as it should. This means that some of the flash storage space will be used without need.

TOR-2929New FeatureEnable support for the Microchip KSZ8795/KSZ88X3 switch chips on TorizonCore 6 (NXP downstream kernel)Apalis iMX8, Colibri iMX8X, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Verdin iMX8M PlusKernel

Description: Enable the Ilitek I2C 213X/23XX/25XX/Lego Series Touchscreen Controller device driver as a module on TorizonCore 6.

TOR-2923FixedThe "ip" command does not work as expected when bringing up the CAN interface leading to error "either "dev" is duplicate, or "type" is garbage"Not applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: In TorizonCore 6 it is not possible to configure the CAN interface with the command "ip" (for example, "ip link set can0 type can bitrate 125000") outside a container. This leads to the error "either "dev" is duplicate, or "type" is garbage" when trying to bring up the CAN interface.

Workaround: Use the "ip" command inside a container, as described on How to Use CAN on TorizonCore.

TOR-2921New FeatureEnable support for the VUB300 USB to SD/SDIO IC on TorizonCore 6All supported modulesKernel

Description: Enable the VUB300 USB to SD/SDIO IC device driver as a module on TorizonCore 6.

TOR-2452FixedIncreased boot time by approximately 2x on TC 6 when compared to TC 5 on SoMs that use an upstream kernelApalis iMX6, Colibri iMX6Open EmbeddedLow

Description: The boot time on TorizonCore 6 for 32-bit devices has increased by approximately 2x.

Update: the root cause of the increased boot time seems to be that our Embedded Linux BSP 6 is using 2x CPU when compared with BSP 5.

Update 2: the BSP performance has been fixed. Despite that, TorizonCore first boot time seems to be greater on TorizonCore 6 than 5, so we continue to investigate it.

TOR-2426FixedAktualizr: Offline Updates don't work on container images containing symlinks in their layer metadata with error "Found in archive a file with bad file type: 40960"Not applicableAktualizrLow

Description: As reported in the community thread [aktualizr, offline updates] Found in archive a file with bad file type: 40960, some docker images may contain layers that are symlinked to other layers, which leads to an error. The reason a docker image would contain a symlink in the layers is unknown.

TOR-2844New FeatureEnable HIDRAW - Raw Access to USB and Bluetooth Human Interface Devices on TorizonCoreAll supported modulesKernel

Description: Enable the HIDRAW interface in TorizonCore. To learn more, read the Linux kernel document HIDRAW - Raw Access to USB and Bluetooth Human Interface Devices.

TOR-2792FixedDuring a synchronous update Aktualizr may try to start the new application before rebooting, on TorizonCore 6Not applicableAktualizrLow

Description: Once a synchronous update is triggered, the new application is not expected to start until the system reboots and the new OS version is available. On this bug, which affects TorizonCore 6.x releases only, the application starts on the upcoming polling for updates (which by default is 5 minutes) regardless of whether the system reboots and the new OS is loaded.

Given the TorizonCore default polling of 5 minutes and that usually, a reboot due to a synchronous update happens before that time, this bug should not affect most customer use cases. If you customize TorizonCore to use a much shorter polling time, there might be a case when this undesired behavior happens.

TOR-2761FixedAktualizr is rebooting mid-process during synchronous updates with big container imagesNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: When synchronous updates happen, the reboot command may be called before the container (application) updates are finished, leading to a reboot in the middle of the process. This leads to an update failure and rollback to the previous state. This was seen with big containers when performing offline updates. Although it has never been reported, in theory, this bug can affect online updates as well.

Workaround: A workaround for TorizonCore 5.7.y and 6.1.0 is available. A side-effect of the workaround is that updates take longer to complete.
Create a new configuration file for Aktualizr as specified in the article Aktualizr - Modifying the Settings of Torizon Update Client, with the following contents:
[uptane] force_install_completion = true
Then, disable the current reboot mechanism as specified in the section enabling and disabling automatic reboot.
This configuration will still trigger the reboot, and it's expected to take a longer time before it happens.

TOR-2495FixedOn-SoM Bluetooth not working on Verdin iMX8M Plus V1.1A in TorizonCoreVerdin iMX8M PlusOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Although unsupported on TorizonCore 5, Bluetooth has been reportedly working on Verdin iMX8M Plus V1.0. It does not work on Verdin iMX8M Plus V1.1A, though.

We plan to add basic Bluetooth support only on TorizonCore 6 or newer, without testing any specific Bluetooth profile in particular.

TOR-2767New FeatureEnable kernel configurations related to encryption: CONFIG_DM_CRYPT, CONFIG_FS_ENCRYPTION, CONFIG_ECRYPT_FSAll supported modulesKernel

Description: On the Toradex community post USB Storage Encryption, a user has asked how to have a USB storage device encrypted and that can be used with TorizonCore.

We have enabled the kernel config options CONFIG_DM_CRYPT, CONFIG_FS_ENCRYPTION and CONFIG_ECRYPT_FS, so you can leverage those for either full-disk or file-based encryption. Please note however, that the TorizonCore team does not fully validate this use case nor provide documentation about how to use encryption with TorizonCore at the moment, thus you must consult documentation from other sources, such as encryption projects, for more details.

A good starting point to learn more is Sergio Prado's blog post Introduction to Embedded Linux Security - Part 1.

TOR-2757FixedWi-Fi not working on Verdin iMX8M Plus V1.1AVerdin iMX8M PlusKernel, Open EmbeddedLow

Description: Due to missing firmware, Wi-Fi is not working on Verdin iMX8M Plus V1.1A.

Workaround: Build a custom version of TorizonCore with the Yocto Project, including the package "linux-firmware-nxp89xx" in the build.

TOR-2722New FeatureAs a user, I want to be able to downgrade the bootloader to the TorizonCore 5 version, so I can also downgrade the OS and application as well in case I find a critical bug in the fieldNot applicableAktualizr, CI / CD

Description: Bootloader updates will only be supported with bootloader binaries published by Toradex - at least initially. Therefore, publishing them and making them available for you is necessary.

TorizonCore 5 bootloader binaries will allow you to downgrade from TorizonCore 6 to 5 if you find non-obvious bugs in the field and later decide a downgrade is necessary.

6.1.0 quarterly release. Learn more on https://www.toradex.com/news/torizon-core-release-6-1-0-quarterly-release
TOR-2746FixedMissing /dev/colibri-spi-cs0 symlinkColibri iMX6, Colibri iMX6ULL, Colibri iMX7Open EmbeddedLow

Description: The Colibri Evaluation Board uses the SPI interface for an SPI-to-CAN controller, however, we do enable the spidev (a userspace SPI API) on the same SPI interface and CS with an overlay that is currently enabled by default. This leads to a conflict.

Starting from BSP 6.1.0, the overlay that enables spidev on the given SPI interface is not loaded by default. Our test infrastructure caught this change as a possible issue due to a missing symlink to "/dev/colibri-spi-cs0". In fact, this was the intended behavior after the change.

As a customer, if you want to use such an interface with spidev, you must disable the CAN and enable the spidev overlay. For more details on CAN and SPI in our BSP, refer to the CAN (Linux) and the SPI (Linux) articles. To manage device tree and overlays on TorizonCore, we recommend the articles Device Tree Overlays on Torizon and TorizonCore Builder Tool - Customizing TorizonCore Images.

TOR-2724New FeatureEnable kernel config option CONFIG_NET_CLS_MATCHALL in TorizonCore so the PROFINET stack/driver from Siemens can be usedAll supported modulesKernel

TOR-2665FixedLAVA: lshw is throwing the exception "terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::length_error'" in AktualizrNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: From our automated test reports, it was noticed that "lshw" is not working properly. This was found out in Aktualizr logs and it has been confirmed by running "sudo lshw -json" on the command-line. The error is "terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::length_error'".

Aktualizr is not functionally affected, as it can recover from this issue and continue to properly function.

TOR-2647FixedUnhandled exception on offline updates causes aktualizr to fail with error "Aktualizr::RunForever exiting: boost::filesystem::status: No such device:"Not applicableAktualizrLow

Description: Secure offline updates only support a physical medium for updates - an SD Card or a USB stick. That said, the following unhandled exception was reported when someone tried the unsupported use case of NFS storage instead of a physical medium: "Aktualizr::RunForever exiting: boost::filesystem::status: No such device: "/nfs/update"".

This error might also affect supported use cases, for instance, if the physical medium does not behave as expected. Therefore we are working on fixing it.

TOR-2492FixedSplash screen not showing up on i.MX 8 SoMs in TorizonCore 6Verdin iMX8M Mini, Verdin iMX8M PlusOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: On TorizonCore 6, the splash screen is not being displayed on SoMs that use the downstream-based NXP BSP.

TOR-2668New FeatureAs a user, I want documentation on how to check device tree overlays health from procfsNot applicableDevice Tree Overlays

Description: Every device tree overlays that's loaded by the bootloader gets a node under /proc/chosen/device-tree/overlays/overlay_name.dtbo, and its value is the return value of the load/apply operation by the bootloader. So now you can properly check whether all overlays were properly applied during runtime.

Documentaiton is available on Checking applied overlays.

TOR-2639New FeatureAs a user, I want to use Docker Compose to V2 on TorizonCore, so I get the latest bugfixes and new featuresNot applicableOpen Embedded

Description: Docker Compose version 1.x was used on TorizonCore 5. On TorizonCore 6, Compose is being upgraded to version 2.x, so we continue to benefit from upgrades.

There should be no customer impact for TorizonCore users, therefore from our perspective, this is not a breaking change. You can continue to use all TorizonCore features and your tooling just like you did so far.

As a positive side-effect, Compose V2 should be much faster than V1, and this may have a positive impact in TorizonCore application startup time.

As another positive side-effect, the dependency on Python is dropped, opening up the possibility to remove Python entirely from the base OS. Users are expected to install Python - just like anything else related to their applications - in a container.

Learn more about Compose V2 on the blog post from Docker Announcing Compose V2 General Availability. For more information about Compose releases in general, see the https://docs.docker.com/compose/release-notes/

TOR-2578Fixedpython3-cryptography fails to build on KirkstoneNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: The package "python3-criptography" fails to build on kirkstone, apparently due to our patch.

We don't use this package on TorizonCore at the moment, but if you are doing a custom build that adds it either explicitly or as a dependency, your build will fail.

Update: the patch has been dropped.

TOR-2384New FeatureAs a Platform Services customer, I want the gateway certificate updated on all my devices, so I continue connected after 2030Not applicableAktualizr, Open Embedded

Description: The gateway to which devices connect to access the platform is being updated, and with it, the new gateway certificate is being updated on TorizonCore. This should be transparent to all users of the Torizon Platform Services, as long as they update their devices to TorizonCore 6 or newer until 2030.

TOR-2479FixedDocker 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-2476FixedCan't run touch calibration on Verdin iMX8MP with error "_OpenDevice(1249): FATAL: Failed to open device, errno=No such file or directory."Verdin iMX8M Mini, Verdin iMX8M PlusDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: The touch calibrator container does not run successfully, with the following error: "_OpenDevice(1249): FATAL: Failed to open device, errno=No such file or directory."
This happens due to the lack of Vivante drivers for SoMs based on the NXP downstream BSP.

TOR-2459FixedRngd service fails to startVerdin iMX8M PlusOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: The rngd.service fails to start on Verdin iMX8M Plus, which may lead to a slower boot.

Update: this was fixed at the BSP level for release 6.0.0, therefore this ticket has been rejected.

TOR-2454FixedAktualizr: Failed sync updates return an incorrect manifest in some casesNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: Our platform web UI displays the currently installed packages for all ECUs for each device. This information is determined via the manifest that Aktualizr regularly sends back to the server. There is an edge case where certain sync update rollbacks will cause incorrect information to be sent in the manifest. This then causes the web UI to display the incorrect package as installed on the Docker Compose secondary.

TOR-2451FixedLAVA test "hw-links-buses" fails due to possibly missing SPI symlinkColibri iMX6, Apalis iMX6Open EmbeddedLow

Description: On automated tests for our monthly pre-release, some symlinks to devices were missing. The missing ones are "/dev/colibri-spi-cs0" and "/dev/apalis-spi1-cs0", and they prevent the test from running through and checking other symlinks.

Update: this was fixed on the BSP level, nothing was required or done on TorizonCore.

Workaround: Test it on a nightly that has been released after the 6.0.0-devel-202209 monthly. Alternatively, if you plan to use the monthly, then access the given device directly, not though the symlink.

TOR-2433FixedVerdin iMX8M Mini does not boot on nightly candidate to 6.0.0-devel-202209Verdin iMX8M MiniDevice TreesLow

Description: The Verdin iMX8M Mini boot hangs with a Device Tree-related error.

Workaround: Use the latest nightly builds of TorizonCore 6, where it has already been fixed.

TOR-2432FixedTorizonCore 6.0.0-devel-202209 won't boot on Colibri iMX7Colibri iMX7KernelLow

Description: The Colibri iMX7 boot hangs during the kernel startup.

Update: this was fixed at the BSP level, so nothing was done on TorizonCore. Use a nightly image from September 30 or newer to get the fix.

TOR-2429FixedThe weston-touch-calibrator container is hardcoded to calibrate the DPI-1 (RGB) display output on Colibri iMX8X, making it impossible to calibrate a display in the other display outputs (LVDS, MIPI DSI)Colibri iMX8XDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: The weston-touch-calibrator is hardcoded to calibrate the screen on the connector "DPI-1". This may not always be the case and users should be able to calibrate displays on other interfaces.

Workaround: This is fixed, use the latest version of the weston-touch-calibrator container and follow the instructions on how to select a different connector than DPI-1.

TOR-2407New FeatureAs a user, I want to update the Toradex crops container to build TorizonCore 6.x series imagesNot applicableDevice Trees, Kernel, Open Embedded

Description: It is possible to Build TorizonCore from source with the Yocto Project/OpenEmbedded using a container provided by Toradex. This container is being updated so TorizonCore 6 can be built with it, and is made the default version.

TOR-2403FixedThe current `setup-environment-internal` script automatically appends data to `auto.conf` resulting in duplicated settingsNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Every time the "setup-environment" script is run, it automatically appends data to "auto.conf", making it inconvenient to use it.

TOR-2363FixedAktualizr: Manifest doesn't return proper ECU installation report in some casesNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: In some cases, it is possible for one of the ECUs to not be able to return an installation report in the manifest that is sent to the server. Instead of indicating an error in such a case the installation report just omits any information about this ECU. This can cause a weird situation where the update is marked “successful”, but the specific assignment for the problematic ECU is not marked complete since an installation report was never received. This situation while rare is not easily recovered from.

Update: this has been reported in the upstream project, on Secondary manifest not sent in some cases.

TOR-2324New FeatureAs a user, I want updated documentation for the TorizonCore 6.x seriesNot applicableDevice Trees, Kernel, Open Embedded

TOR-2650FixedRunning "shutdown -h now" or "poweroff" on Torizon for colibri-imx7-emmc results in a partial rebootColibri iMX7KernelLow

Description: Colibri iMX7 has two watchdog sources: the SoC and the PMIC. BSP 5 uses the PMIC watchdog as "/dev/colibri-watchdog", which in turn is the one used by TorizonCore. It turns out that the watchdog firmware for the PMIC on BSP 5 is not as featureful as required to ensure the "shutdown" properly works.

TOR-2519New FeatureAs a user, I want the fix for devices updates being locked in a "pending" state after updating from 5.2.0 to 5.7.0, due to sending of ill-formed manifests to the platform, backported to TorizonCore 5Not applicableAktualizr

Description: Enable the kernel config options CONFIG_W1, CONFIG_W1_MASTER_GPIO and CONFIG_W1_SLAVE_SMEM as modules on TorizonCore for the DS2401 Silicon Serial Number support

TOR-2366FixedThe docker-integrity-checker and docker-compose systemd services don't use /etc/docker/config.json as the default configuration fileNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Docker uses a configuration file that is kept by default in the user directory (something like "/home/user/.docker/config.json"). This is not ideal for TorizonCore, since the home directory is not touched by updates, and user configuration hardly ever makes sense. Due to that, some of our services explicitly set the DOCKER_CONFIG environment variable to use the config file at /etc/docker/config.json, which is great because, as a user, you can customize it, capture changes with TorizonCore Builder, and replicate the configuration to all boards.

Recently, it was reported that the configuration file /etc/docker/config.json was not being used by the docker-integrity-checker and the docker-compose services, leading to unexpected behavior.

This is being fixed in a way that the DOCKER_CONFIG variable is globally set in TorizonCore, so all systemd services and the shell environment make use of it.

Workaround: Create a systemd override for the affected services that appends the line Environment="DOCKER_CONFIG=/etc/docker", then capture changes with TorizonCore Builder.
Or set "/home/torizon/.docker/config.json" and "/etc/docker/config.json" with the same contents.
Or use a symbolic link from one file to another.

TOR-2359FixedRemote updates get stuck after a power supply interruption while updating (update started shown in WebUI)Not applicableAktualizrLow

Description: The error "Top level object in '/var/sota/storage/docker-compose/docker-compose.yml.tmp' needs to be an object not ''." shows up in rare occasions, due to power cut on secondary updates leading to an empty /var/sota/storage/docker-compose/docker-compose.yml.tmp file. This leads to a scenario where the board cannot recovery from updates in the web UI and thus leads to a state where application updates cannot be performed anymore.

We are fixing it by making the file creation operation atomic, so it properly fails and rolls back if the file is not populated with the expected content during a power cut.

TOR-2340FixedError "E1187: Failed to source defaults.vim" when using VimNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: When using Vim on TorizonCore, the following message is printed before Vim is started: "E1187: Failed to source defaults.vim". While it does not prevent you from using Vim, a defaults.vim file is missing which would suppress such a message, therefore we'll add it.

TOR-2320FixedError response from Docker daemon "docker: Error response from daemon: transport is closing: unavailable." in LAVA testsNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: The error "docker: Error response from daemon: transport is closing: unavailable." was identified by our test infrastructure on some SoMs, as Colibri iMX6ULL, Colibri iMX7, and Apalis iMX6D 1GB IT. We are investigating why.

If you experience the same error, please report it in our community website.

Update: we have downgraded from docker-moby 20.x to docker-ce 19.03.14, which is proven to be stable from our previous releases and test cases.

TOR-2318FixedDevice tree repository not syncing from BSP nightliesNot applicableCI / CD, Device Tree OverlaysLow

Description: For a while, our device-trees repository got out of sync with the Linux kernel device trees. It is fixed as of June 9th. If you have done some work previously and your device tree is not working, please pull the latest changes.

TOR-2315FixedOffline Updates: Synchronous Updates do not work correctly if a device is offline provisionedNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: During our internal tests to validate the secure offline updates implementation, we have noticed that synchronous updates don't work.

TOR-2305FixedOffline Updates: Synchronous offline updates failNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: If you define a synchronous update using a vanilla TorizonCore image - that is, one provided by Toradex and not customized with TorizonCore Builder - then synchronous updates fail.

Workaround: Push a TorizonCore image to the Platform Services using TorizonCore Builder, then use this image for synchronous secure offline updates.

TOR-2261FixedWeston configuration does not work on apalis-imx8 with HDMI displayApalis iMX8Debian PackagesLow

Description: The Weston configuration file does not make changes as expected. This was identified when trying to rotate the screen by 90 degrees, as documented in Working with Weston on TorizonCore.

Workaround: We suspect this is an issue with sharing the configuration file with the Weston container. Try to share the entire directory where the configuration file is located, instead of only the file itself. For example: "-v ${PWD}/weston/:/etc/xdg/weston" or "-v ${PWD}/weston-dev/:/etc/xdg/weston-dev"

Update 1: It seems that the underlying culprit are trailing whitespaces. Ensure that your configuration file does not contain trailing whitespace.

Update 2: in the end, the "name=*" line of the configuration file was commented out. Please remember to uncomment this line to make your customization effective.

TOR-2186New FeatureAs a user, I want documentation about production programming and provisioning at scaleNot applicableOther

Description: TorizonCore Builder will contain features that allow devices to be provisioned to the Torizon Platform Services without manual intervention. This allows you to provision devices during production programming.

TOR-2277New FeatureAs a developer, I want to reduce the log level for Aktualizr "Offline-mode header not found"Not applicableAktualizr

Description: The message “Offline-mode header not found…“ is not very important on the default log level. It can bring more confusion than help in the early debug stages. We plan to drop the log level so it is omitted by default.

TOR-2276FixedSplash screen working on Apalis iMX8 only if HDMI overlay is disabledApalis iMX8Device Tree OverlaysLow

Description: Currently, it is stated that splash screen on Apalis iMX8 is not supported due to an NXP DRM driver limitation.

However, if the HDMI interface is disabled (HDMI device tree overlays removed) and only the LVDS interface is enabled (LVDS device tree overlays added), then the splash screen shows up on the LVDS display.

TOR-2274New FeatureEnable support for the SJA1000 CAN controllerNot applicableKernel

Description: Enable kernel config options on TorizonCore for the SJA1000 CAN controller support, as a module

TOR-2271New FeatureAs a developer, I want provisioning to happen soon after internet access is availableNot applicableOpen Embedded

Description: The provisioning service has a timeout of 30 minutes. We plan to reduce it to 5 minutes, so provisioning retry does not take too long in case it's required.

TOR-2262New FeatureAs a developer, I want mmc-utils on TorizonCore, so I can perform booloader updatesNot applicableOpen Embedded

Description: mmc-utils are useful in many scenarios. Motivated by the necessity to allow bootloader updates, we decided to include the utils in the TorizonCore distro. Learn more about eMMC on our article eMMC (Linux)

TOR-2260FixedSyntax error in weston.ini fileNot applicableDebian PackagesLow

Description: The current default "weston.ini" provided in our Debian containers has a trailing space in the commented line "#[output]". If this line is uncommented, a silent error happens due to the file being considered malformed.

Workaround: Remove the trailing whitespace manually.

TOR-2235FixedAs a developer, I want to update the article about GStreamerNot applicableSamplesLow

Description: The instructions on how to use the samples are outdated, missing build instructions for 64-bit targets.

TOR-2256FixedTorizonCore build fails due to Git error when generating the imageNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: On development PCs with newer versions of Git that address CVE-2022-24765 and CVE-2022-24767, the TorizonCore build with Yocto Project/OpenEmbedded fails.

Workaround: This is fixed on commit 256b379f02da66522eb20d93071f95b9bd859f8e, update your local version of meta-toradex-torizon to this commit or newer.

TOR-2255New FeatureAs a developer, I want to release a Cog container for GPU-less SoMsColibri iMX6ULL, Colibri iMX7Debian Base Containers

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

TOR-2249FixedAn OTA with the same name and version running on the device, but different hash, puts the device in an unrecoverable stateNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: If you push an application update with a given version, let's say "1.0", then you override the Docker Compose on the Platform Services but use the same version "1.0" and push a new application update, this leaves the device into an application update hanging state.

TOR-2248New FeatureEnable support for matrix keyboard (CONFIG_KEYBOARD_MATRIX)All supported modulesKernel

Description: We enable support for matrix keyboard in TorizonCore, shipping it as a module

TOR-2239New FeatureAs a developer, I want to split the kiosk-mode-browser in two for Cog and Chromium, so the containers are optimized and maintenance is easierNot applicableDebian Base Containers

Description: The kiosk-mode-browser includes both Chromium and Cog. To keep things lean for customers and also easier for us to maintain, we will split the container in two.

TOR-2161New FeatureAs a developer, I want to investigate how to run graphical applications on a headless boardNot applicableAutomated testing

Description: Running graphical applications on a board that does not have a display connected can be useful. For example, it may help validating graphical apps on CI pipelines, or remote accessing a board while sharing it with others during a development phase.
While we execute this task mainly motivated to improve our CI pipeline, as we consider some results of this investigation useful to customers, we will publicly document them. If you have interesting in such, please contact us.

Update 1: how to force a display connector state to "on" is documented on Working with Weston on TorizonCore - Running graphical application without a display connected.

Workaround: Check if the display connector state is on. If not, force it with a command similar to "echo on > /sys/class/drm/card1-HDMI-A-1/status", depending on your board.

TOR-2211FixedLAVA test case for TorizonCore "hw-automounting-test" is failingNot applicableAutomated testingLow

Description: Our CI test infrastructure caught a regression on automounting a USB stick. This is due to the fact that, if a drive without a partition table is inserted during boot, it is not mounted properly. On hotplug, it does work as expected.

TOR-2199Fixedmwifiex drivers don't get loaded if the device hostname gets changedNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: On TorizonCore, the loading of on-SoM Wi-Fi drivers are delayed, to improve application boot time. Currently the drivers are loaded for each SoM based on the hostname. This leads to the drivers not loading if the hostname is changed.

The method to infer the SoM model will be changed to allow customers to change the hostname without such an impact.

Workaround: Until the fix is released, avoid changing the hostname.

TOR-2192FixedPersistent logging no longer worksNot applicableKernel, Open EmbeddedLow

Description: The persistent journald logging should work, as it has been tested in the past. The feature was reported as not working in our community, therefore we are investigating and fixing it.

TOR-2167New FeatureAs a developer, I want to review the NXP license added to TorizonCore without evaluation containersVerdin iMX8M Plus, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Colibri iMX8X, Colibri iMX6, Apalis iMX8, Apalis iMX6Open Embedded

Description: TorizonCore releases come in two “flavors”: with and without evaluation containers. We add the NXP license to the Toradex Easy Installer image without evaluation containers, but we don’t use it. In other words, when installing TorizonCore, users are not prompted to accept the license.
In this task, we will evaluate if the license is being deployed as a mistake, or if we should enable prompting users to accept NXP’s EULA.

Update: we came to the conclusion that, even for images without evaluation containers, some of them are shipped with components that are subject to NXP's EULA. Therefore, the license will also show up on those images, on a case-by-case basis mostly dependent on the SoC that equips a given SoM.

TOR-2145FixedKMS Cube sample presenting VGA and Parallel display with horizontal line artifacts on Colibri iMX8XColibri iMX8XDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: The Qt sample "KMS cube" displays horizontal line artifacts and very high FPS on the parallel video output. The issue can only be reproduced on the KMS Cube sample.

This issue is inherited from the Toradex BSP, therefore there are no plans to fix it on the TorizonCore team. See ELB-4203 for more info.

Workaround: See ELB-4203 for a workaround.

TOR-2142FixedUnable to remote access the device via VNC/RDP after running a Qt framebuffer testNot applicableDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: Every time we release a TorizonCore version (quarterly or LTS) we test Qt using different back-ends, including the "linuxfb". We have noticed that, after running a Qt app with this back-end, it is not possible anymore to access the device via VNC/RDP, and a reboot is required.

Our latest findings show that the problem is due to the app leaving the TTY stuck in "graphics" mode instead of returning to "text" mode after the exit of the program. We are investigating how to ensure the TTY is returned to the "text" mode before an application is restarted.

Workaround: For this specific sample, if you exit it by pressing "Ctrl+Q" or "Right click --> Quit", it will properly return the TTY to "text" mode as to not let the error happen again. We are still evaluating why it happens, though.

In general, if you need VNC/RDP access, run your Qt app with either the Wayland or the EGLFS/KMS back-end for the moment.

Update: we have added a script to the weston Debian container to make sure the terminal is always reset to a usable state. This should fix the issue while being transparent to you.

TOR-1566New FeatureAs a developer, I want to use a lint tool in Dockerfiles, so code quality is improvedAll supported modulesDebian Base Containers

Description: Even though we pay attention to best practices since practically the birth of Torizon, so far we didn't use a linter in our CI pipelines. After some investigation, we have decided to adopt hadolint and we recommend that, if you write your own Dockerfiles, you also use a linter.

As an example, you can see the implementation in our torizon-samples repository. we ignore some warnings on a per-repository basis, adapted to their context.

Description: We enable support for the RTC NXP PCF2127/29 in TorizonCore, shipping it as a module.
This feature has been requested in our community.

Workaround: Until the driver is enabled, you must build a custom version of TorizonCore from source, adding your patches to enable the device driver.

TOR-2084New FeatureAs a user, I want to learn what does a successful remote application update means and its relationship with health checksNot applicableAktualizr

Description: We lack documentation on what does a "successful remote application update" means. This creates a misalignment between what customers expect from the feature and how it behaves. It has been documented and is available in the Torizon Remote Updates Technical Overview.

TOR-2058New FeatureAs a developer, I want to stop providing experimental support for NAND-based modules in TorizonCoreColibri iMX6ULL, Colibri iMX7Open Embedded

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.

TOR-1931New FeatureAs a developer, I want to investigate what is missing related to VPU-enabled GStreamer support in TorizonCore for SoMs that use the Hantro VPUVerdin iMX8M Plus, Verdin iMX8M MiniDebian Base Containers, Debian Packages

Description: TorizonCore lacks some Debian packages that would allow you to use VPU-enabled GStreamer pipelines for Verdin iMX8M Mini and Verdin iMX8M Plus, that use the Hantro VPU. In this task, we investigate which NXP packages we miss and list what Debian packages must be created by Toradex to support it.

Note that Apalis/Colibri iMX6 already have upstream support for VPU acceleration, and Apalis iMX8, Apalis iMX8X and Colibri iMX8X are also supported downstream, the latter with instructions provided on How to use GStreamer on TorizonCore.

Workaround: While it isn't a trivial thing to do, you could start from our instructions for i.MX 8 and add/build the missing NXP packages directly in a Dockerfile.

5.5.0 quarterly release. Learn more on https://www.toradex.com/news/torizon-core-release-5-5-0-quarterly-release
TOR-2087New FeatureAs a developer, I want to understand if DBus introduces a security issue for usersNot applicableOpen Embedded

Description: D-Bus exposes some features from the base OS such as the ability to reboot or shutdown the system. We have evaluated if this is a security risk and came to the conclusion that, by default, it isn't. This is due to the fact that to use D-Bus from inside a container, you must explicitly bind mount "/var/run/dbus" and therefore evaluate the risk of doing so.
Keep in mind that, in the worst case, even if you expose D-Bus to your container, it will be as secure as a regular non-containerized embedded Linux system, where you don't have the additional security layer offered by containers.

Workaround: If you don't trust the software running in your container, it is advised that you don't bind mount "/var/run/dbus", or at least restrict D-Bus access to some interfaces by creating configuration files on "/etc/dbus-1/system.d/".

TOR-2008New FeatureAs a user, I want to be made aware of the importance of setting strong password and I want to be able to enforce itNot applicableOpen Embedded

Description: Nowadays, certificate-based authentication is a more secure and preferred method over password-based authentication. Nevertheless, we want to at least provide the tools for our customers to create strong passwords, shall they decide to use this method.
When this task is completed, you will get documentation explaining how to enforce the setup of a strong password and learn more about certificate-based authentication.
TorizonCore will not change the default implementation on how to set a new password: you are required to update the password on the first login, but you still can set a weak password without being prompted about it.

TOR-2007New FeatureAs a user, I want to understand if it makes sense to prune Docker images periodically in TorizonCoreNot applicableOpen Embedded

Description: Especially during development, it is common that the system accumulates several stopped containers, networks, and dangling images. This may lead to annoying usage of storage.
Since this feature was added, TorizonCore is shipped with a systemd service named "docker-auto-prune" that you can enable during development, and it will run periodically to remove the accumulated garbage.

Not Planned
TOR-2654Known IssueAdd, remove, and then re-add a secondary lead to the error “At least one ecu in EcuIdentifier was already used and removed for DeviceId and cannot be reused"Not applicableAktualizr, Automated testingLow

Description: In the TorizonCore update system, each updateable component - the OS, the application described by a Docker Compose file, the bootloader, and possibly other components in the future - is registered as a new ECU when introduced to a new TorizonCore release. The ECU naming comes from the automotive industry, and in our case it can be interpreted as a component that can be updated alone.
Due to how the updates are implemented in TorizonCore, you cannot automatically - that is, without manual intervention - update the OS to a version that has a new ECU, downgrade to a version that does not have it, and then update again to a version that has it. The system will see this as an attempt to add, remove, and re-add the ECU.
This is a rare scenario, and one example when this can happen is when Toradex introduced bootloader upgrades - which in practice introduced an ECU. If you update from TorizonCore 5.7.0 or older to 5.7.2 or newer, then downgrade to 5.7.0 or older, then update to 5.7.2 or newer, you will get the error “At least one ecu in EcuIdentifier was already used and removed for DeviceId and cannot be reused".

Workaround: Run the following command on the affected device: "rm -rf /var/sota/storage/bootloader"

TOR-2406Known IssueHW Accelerated Chromium is not able to render SVG Images on Debian Bullseye containerApalis iMX8, Colibri iMX8X, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Verdin iMX8M PlusDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: When running hardware-accelerated Chromium, SVG images are not rendered.

This is an issue in the upstream Chromium project, see the chromium-ozone-wayland 101 SVG issue, therefore the TorizonCore team will wait until there is a fix upstream.

Update: this issue only affects the Torizon container for Debian Bullseye (tag with major number equal to 2). The container for Debian Bookworm (tag with major number equal to 3) is not affected.

Workaround: There are alternatives:

TOR-2129Feature RequestAs a user, I would like a VPN that supports TCPKernel, Open Embedded

Description: Wireguard requires UDP access to function. There are some use cases where a TCP-based solution is needed.

Workaround: It is possible to run OpenVNP on TorizonCore. Read the article OpenVPN and Weston's VNC/RDP on TorizonCore for more details.

TOR-2082Feature RequestAs a user, when I use U-Boot fw-utils without sudo, I want a more descriptive error message than "Configuration file wrong or corrupted"Not applicableOpen Embedded

Description: When running U-Boot fw-utils commands as fw_setenv or fw_printenv as the torizon user, the command fails with the error message "Configuration file wrong or corrupted".

Workaround: Either run the commands with sudo, or switch to the root user before running the commands.

TOR-2022Known IssueTorizonCore Real Time image reboots randomly on Apalis iMX8Apalis iMX8KernelLow

Description: It has been reported by a customer that the PREEMPT_RT version of TorizonCore reboots spontaneously on Apalis iMX8. Internally, we were able to reproduce this bug on TorizonCore 5.7.0.
As of July 2022 - when 5.7.0 LTS has been released, the images with the PREEMPT_RT patch haven't been fully validated by Toradex. We have only run smoke tests and cyclictest to make sure that the system boots properly and the PREEMPT_RT patches are working on idle conditions.
In the TorizonCore Download Links we only list PREEMPT_RT images as monthly pre-releases, because they don't go through our validation steps to promote them to production-ready.
This bug is rejected because the customer who reported it didn't follow up on it and we suspect they may have been able to use the regular image without PREEMPT_RT, or another alternative. If you are waiting for this bug fix, please contact us so we can re-evaluate this decision and possibly resume our investigation.

TOR-2002Known IssueQt5 with EGLFS/KMS backend not working on rare casesApalis iMX6Debian Base ContainersLow

Description: Qt 5 with the EGLFS backend in some specific conditions does not work. While it was identified on BSP 5.3.0 and an Apalis iMX6Q 2GB IT V1.1C, the root cause remains unknown as even on other SoMs with the same configuration it does work.

Workaround: Use the Weston backend. If you need EGLFS and Weston cannot meet your needs, please contact us.

TOR-1878Feature RequestAs a user, I want to completely quiet the serial console, so I can use the serial port for other purposesNot applicableOpen Embedded

Description: Although we advise customers to keep the first UART dedicated to debugging purposes by default, in the end, it should be a customer decision (for example, it may make sense in scenarios where security concerns are high).
Our investigations show that it isn't possible to keep an easy-to-use solution in TorizonCore Builder, therefore we may document our findings with documentation, but we won't provide this as a feature. Please have a look at the workaround below to find some documentation.

Workaround: You can find some useful information in the article Configuring Serial Port Debug Console (Linux/U-Boot).

TOR-1371Known IssueBuggy behavior using openjdk with qemu-static binaries for armv7 and armv8All supported modulesOtherLow

Description: Installing Java or the use of Java-dependent applications does not work during docker build

Workaround: Do not use java directly on your Dockerfile which will use a distro based on ARM architecture. Create a multistage Dockerfile and use a x86-64 distro as a base to perform tasks that require java.

TOR-319Known IssueColibri iMX6S gets very slow with DockerColibri iMX6Open EmbeddedLow

Description: Limited amount of memory on iMX6S prevents the system from running fast.

Update: Colibri iMX6S is not supported by TorizonCore anymore, since the low RAM leads to a poor user experience and limited use cases.

TOR-3129Known IssueChromium 3/Bookworm causes a Weston crash on Apalis iMX8 QuadPlusApalis iMX8, Verdin iMX8M PlusDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: Running Chromium 3 on TorizonCore 6 leads to a kernel panic.

Workaround: Use Chromium 2, either on TorizonCore 5 or 6.

TOR-3032Known IssueXwayland falls back to software rendering due to broken Glamor support on i.MX8-based SoMsApalis iMX8, Colibri iMX8X, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Verdin iMX8M PlusDebian PackagesLow

Description: Xwayland is being started with Glamor disabled, which leads it to fallback to software rendering without 2D graphics acceleration.

This is being fixed in the meta-freescale layer, in the issue xwayland: glamor support broken on iMX8, and once fixed we will leverage it to reintroduce graphics acceleration.

TOR-2969Known IssueGraphical applications fail to run on Verdin iMX8M Mini DualLite with error "ioctl(DRM_IOCTL_GEM_CLOSE) failed failed to initialize GBM"Verdin iMX8M MiniAutomated testing, Debian Base Containers

Description: Under unknown circumstances, in rare occasions, the error "ioctl(DRM_IOCTL_GEM_CLOSE) failed failed to initialize GBM" is thrown when trying to run graphical applications (it was seen at least once when running the kmscube demo application). After extensively trying to reproduce this error, it was decided to not work on it anymore until a means to reproduce it is found. So far, there are no affected customers, therefore if you get this error, please contact us.

TOR-2918Feature RequestAs a user, I want to create a hotspot on TorizonCore with NetworkManager, so I can share internet to other devicesNot applicableOpen Embedded

Description: Support for hotspot, or in other words, AP mode with internet forward, will be added to TorizonCore.

TOR-2802Known IssueError "Configuration file wrong or corrupted" in reading U-Boot environment variables with fw_printenv in greenboot scriptsNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Reading the U-Boot environment early in the boot stage with the “fw_printenv“ command may fail due to a missing symlink to “/dev/emmc-boot0“, which is created from a udev rule. It may happen, for example, from a Greenboot check script as documented on Update Checks and Rollbacks.

Workaround: Either wait for the symlink to be created before running “fw_printenv“, or if you need to use the command in the early boot stages, change the fw-utils configuration to use the eMMC device directly instead of the symlink.

TOR-2779Known IssueAktualizr has issues with handling the hashes of metadata files containing multi-byte unicode charactersNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: Due to a mismatch between how the client and the server calculate the hashes of packages names and versions, updates of packages that contain multi-character bytes in their name or version fail.

Workaround: Only use non-control ASCII characters in package name and version.

TOR-2488Known IssueWeston container remote desktop (VNC and RDP) causes graphics slow downDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: A customer has reported that enabling VNC significantly affects the performance of their GUI. This is just having the feature enabled with no actual VNC connection present.

This behavior has been observed internally as well. The exact severity of the slowdown depends on the UI framework and how intensive the graphics are overall. But there always seems to be some kind of slowdown present.

This is also known in the upstream weston project, as reported on 11.0.0 Weston screen sharing in embedded environment is very laggy with 100% CPU usage.

TOR-2357Feature RequestAs a user, I want trailing whitespace to be automatically removed from my weston.ini config fileNot applicableDebian Base Containers

Description: The weston.ini configuration file is strict with syntax errors, and it doesn't allow trailing whitespaces.

Workaround: When applying any configuration described either on the official Weston documentation, or on our article Working with Weston on TorizonCore, make sure there are no trailing whitespace in your configuration file.

TOR-2304Known IssueOffline Updates: Short-lived containers get pruned from the system and can't be re-fetchedNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: As described in the Torizon Remote Updates Overview, application updates pull containers, then check if Docker Compose starts them without errors and last prunes the system, thus removing unnecessary containers.

A side-effect is that, between starting containers with Docker Compose and pruning them, some containers may exit/finish their task, and thus get pruned. For offline updates, there is no way for the system to pull those containers back.

Workaround: If your application includes oneshot/short-lived/ephemeral containers that exit shortly after they are started, you must add an artificial delay before the container exits, for example using the "sleep" command.

TOR-2303Known IssueOffline Updates: Strange "INTERNAL_ERROR" log during an application updateNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: The log message with a result equal to INTERNAL_ERROR results from the online updates call chain and it does not affect offline updates. Post the Secure Offline Updates MVP we plan to support concomitant online + offline updates and then review this log message.

Workaround: Just ignore the message.

TOR-2302Known IssueOffline Updates: Update doesn't proceed after temporary update lock expiresNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: While it is possible to block updates locking a given file, the offline updates are never unblocked after the lock expires.

Workaround: Two workarounds are possible. Either remove and re-attach the lockbox media to trigger another update, or restart the aktualizr service after releasing the lock.
