  • 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.

TOR-2459Known IssueRngd 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.

TOR-2454Known IssueAktualizr: 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-2451Known IssueLAVA 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-2450Known IssueLAVA test "services-logs" fails due to incorrect parsing of resultsColibri iMX6, Apalis iMX6Open EmbeddedLow

Description: This is a regular maintenance task and doesn't affect customers. The test that checks if systemd services have failed to start is failing due to how the logs are parsed.

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.

TOR-2434Known IssueTorizonCore: Master: aktualizr-torizon_git.bb: do_compile failedNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Native builds of Aktualizr-Torizon were failing because the OE metada data was not set to fetch the latest version of the source-code during builds of the master branch. This has no impact on customers, it is purely a maintenance task.

TOR-2433Known IssueVerdin 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-2432Known IssueTorizonCore 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-2429Known Issueweston-touch-calibrator is fixed to show on DPI-1 head on Colibri iMX8XColibri iMX8XDebian Tools 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-2427Known IssueOffline-update folder is ignored when running 'aktualizr once' on local machineNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: The offline updates configuration has a property named "offline_updates_source" that is ignored when "aktualizr once" is run. This does not affect the majority of customers. Only customers who actively decided to use "aktualizr once" for some reason are affected.

TOR-2424Known IssueKirkstone - iMX8 - Warnings from the do_kernel_configcheck taskNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: When migrating from BSP 5 to early BSP 6, some kernel configuration has changed and requires a review. If you suspect a given configuration is not working due to a wrong kernel config, keep an eye on the next release when this task is done, then try it out again.

TOR-2411Feature RequestAs a user, I want documentation on bootloader updatesNot applicableAktualizr

Description: In preparation for making bootloader updates available, we are working on documentation on when, why, and how to use it.

TOR-2399Known IssueAktualizr-torizon ignores sota_local.toml when initalizing secondary device on local machineNot applicableAktualizr, Automated testingLow

Description: When using the flag "-c" on Aktualizr-Torizon startup, as in for example "/aktualizr-torizon -c /path/local_device_pilot/sota-local.toml --loglevel 1 once", Aktualizr-Torizon does not use the specified path. This has no known impact on customers, since it is an use case that was only reported when different instances of Aktualizr-Torizon were started on a local computer.

TOR-2285Feature RequestAs a developer, I want to update the imx-gpu-viv package to match the NXP 5.15 based releaseNot applicableDebian Packages

Description: As regular maintenance, Debian packages based on NXP 5.15 are being updated for TorizonCore 6.x.

Description: This does not impact most of TorizonCore customers. When running "aktualizr once", the path to storage is ignored resulting in an error.

6.0.0-devel-202209 (Release date: 2022-09-08)
6.0.0-devel-202209 monthly pre-release
TOR-2422FixedBuild in the master branch fails with 'Unable to find a match: kernel-module-wireguard'Not applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: In kernel >= 5.6, the Wireguard module was merged in-tree, so there is no need for the out-of-tree module anymore and it leads to a build error. This has no customer impact.

TOR-2421FixedAktualizr-Torizon is failing to build in the master branchNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: Due to a bump in GCC and Boost versions, some maintenance to fix build issues of Aktualizr-Torizon is required. This has no customer impact.

TOR-2420FixedTorizonCore build is failing for qemuarm64 with 'Nothing PROVIDES 'virtual/bootloader''Not applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Experimental builds are run for qemuarm64, so build issues are fixed when found out. Customers are not recommended to use this image, though, since it is not tested by the TorizonCore team.

TOR-2419FixedTorizonCore should inherit TDX_MAJOR from the BSPNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: This has no impact for users of TorizonCore, it is a maintenance task.
Currently, TDX_MAJOR is set in the TorizonCore distro. Since it is built on top of the BSP and follows the same versioning scheme and values, TorizonCore must inherit the TDX_MAJOR from the BSP layers.

TOR-2408New FeatureEnable support for the Microchip KSZ9897 7-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with SGMII/RGMII/MII/RMII in TorizonCoreAll supported modulesKernelLow

Description: Enable kernel config options on TorizonCore for the Microchip KSZ9897 7-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with SGMII/RGMII/MII/RMII support, as a module

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-2365New FeatureAs a developer, I want to rebuild all containers against the latest Debian stable feedNot applicableDebian Base Containers

Description: As part of our maintenance policy, we periodically rebuild the Debian containers provided for Torizon.
Your software should not be impacted, as this maintenance build only bumps the minor version of the containers. Nevertheless, you are encouraged to test your software and consider using the newer version, to benefit from bug and security fixes provided by the Debian community.
To learn more about our containers release strategy and versioning, visit the article TorizonCore Containers Tags and Versioning.

TOR-2364New FeatureAs a user, I want to use the latest Portainer version in the image with pre-provisioned containersNot applicableDebian Base Containers

Description: This is a regular maintenance task. Since only the minor version of Portainer has been updated, no impact is expected for TorizonCore users.
The version of Portainer included in TorizonCore with Evaluation Containers will be updated from 2.13.1 to 2.14.2.

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

Description: As TorizonCore 6.0.0 release gets closer, we start doing internal work on updating the documentation for the release.

TOR-2323New FeatureAs a developer, I want to setup the infrastructure and build the first TorizonCore 6.x imageNot applicableAutomated testing, CI / CD, Device Trees, Open EmbeddedLow

Description: As we prepare to release the first TorizonCore 6.x nightly builds, some tasks must be done to make such nightly builds publicly available.

TOR-2311New FeatureAs a developer, I want to investigate the effort of updating packages to the NXP 5.15 based releaseVerdin iMX8M Plus, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Colibri iMX8X, Apalis iMX8Debian PackagesLow

Description: NXP has released Linux 5.15.32_2.0.0​ on June 2022. As our upcoming TorizonCore 6.x series will be based on this BSP, we must plan updating our Debian packages to support features that are only supported in the NXP downstream BSP - usually HW acceleration for components as GPU, VPU, NPU, among others.

TOR-2266New FeatureAs a developer, I want to use a fork instead of a submodule in aktualizr-torizonNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: Toradex keeps a client implementation of Aktualizr named Aktualizr-Torizon and a fork of libaktualizr.
This adds overhead for feature integration and making a release. We, therefore, plan to use a single fork and keep our client implementation in the same repository.

TOR-2214New FeatureTorizonCore Maintenance Q3 2022Not applicableOpen Embedded

Description: Every quarter we do some maintenance such as updating external layers in our manifests, updating software versions in meta-toradex-torizon, among others.

TOR-2158New FeatureAs a user, I want to be able to update TorizonCore kernel arguments via OTA (Aktualizr)Aktualizr

Description: Updating base OS kernel command-line arguments is a potential requirement in some scenarios such as BSP major version upgrades. This is now implemented for such needs if it happens.

TOR-2155New FeatureAs a developer, I want to create a main branch maintenance policy for TorizonCoreNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: The TorizonCore team maintains the main/master branch healthy, as this allows to release new software faster and with better quality. Images built from the main/master branch are not meant to be used by customers, they are purely for the TorizonCore team internal usage.

TOR-2122New FeatureAs a developer, I want to run TorizonCore images built from the master branchNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Keeping a healthy master branch is useful for long-term maintenance. We are giving it a try on building TorizonCore from the master branch and booting it.
Keep in mind that we have not yet decided if we will even release those builds, and even if we do, their quality will never be guaranteed to any degree. Those are mostly for aiding the internal process of developing TorizonCore.

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-2397FixedChromium container fails to start in the evaluation containers on modules with GPUVerdin iMX8M Plus, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Colibri iMX8X, Colibri iMX6, Apalis iMX8, Apalis iMX6Debian 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-2387FixedNighly: genericx86-64: building is failing with "ERROR: Nothing RPROVIDES 'u-boot-fw-utils'"Not applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: U-Boot and related software must not be included in our experimental x86 builds. We are working on making a conditional inclusion of "u-boot-fw-utils" so it is only installed in Arm builds.

TOR-2385New FeatureEnable kernel config options for the MCP23S17 16-Bit I/O Expander with Serial Interface, on TorizonCoreAll supported modulesKernelLow

Description: Enable kernel config options on TorizonCore for the MCP23S17 16-Bit I/O Expander with Serial Interface support, as a module

TOR-2382New FeatureEnable support for the 1-wire DS2401 Silicon Serial Number in TorizonCoreAll supported modulesKernelLow

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-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.

Workaround: As we are actively working on fixing this issue, update your TorizonCore to the latest nightly until the bug is fixed. Until then, synchronous updates are expected to not 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-2300New FeatureAs a developer, I want to define a clear interface between the aktualizr-torizon generic secondary and an action-handlerNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: A generic secondary allows reusing the implementation for various tasks such as updating Docker Compose, bootloader, Arm Cortex-M firmware, among others. An interface must be defined to allow writing the specific part of code that cannot be reused and must be connected to the generic secondary.

TOR-2278New FeatureAs a developer, I want to integrate bootloader secondary in TorizonCoreNot applicableAktualizr, Open EmbeddedLow

Description: By allowing bootloader updates in TorizonCore, we ensure the entire software stack is updateable.

While bootloader updates are generally not recommended, there might be situations when it's mandatory to update, such as possible major bootloader releases with breaking changes in newer BSP versions.

Update: this feature is included in 5.7.0 as a technical preview, disabled by default, and not recommended for production scenarios. We encourage you to test it in a controlled environment and provide feedback. Please contact us for more details.

TOR-2264New FeatureAs a developer, I want to create an action handler script for bootloader upgradeNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: As we work on bootloader updates, we have decided to implement it in a way that a generic secondary mechanism allows users to write secondary-specific "action handlers" in the future. At the moment, we will focus on implementing the "bootloader update" action handler.

TOR-2263New FeatureAs a developer, I want to create a new Aktualizr secondary for bootloader upgradeNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: Bootloader updates require new infrastructure in our client implementation of Aktualizr. Part of it means adding a new secondary. We have decided to implement it in a way that a generic secondary mechanism allows users to write secondary-specific "action handlers" in the future. At the moment, we will focus on implementing the "bootloader update" action handler.

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-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.

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

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.

Update: documentation is available on Production Programming in Torizon.

TOR-2185New FeatureAs a developer, I want to rebuild GStreamer packages against linux-imx-headers, so the Ion allocator is availableVerdin iMX8M Plus, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Colibri iMX8X, Apalis iMX8Debian PackagesLow

Description: Ion allocator support is required for some VPU-accelerated pipelines on i.MX 8 platforms. While we already provided the packages, we plan to rebuild them against the linux-imx-headers to support the Ion allocator.

TOR-2180New FeatureAs a developer, I want to create a Debian package for imx-parser, so I can support VPU on downstream NXPVerdin iMX8M Plus, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Colibri iMX8X, Apalis iMX8Debian PackagesLow

Description: imx-codec is required to support VPU on some SoCs.

Update: the packages imx-codec, imx-codec-dev, imx-codec-examples and imx-codec-doc are available from our Debian feed.

TOR-2178New FeatureAs a developer, I want to create a Debian package for linux-imx-headers, so I can support VPU on downstream NXPVerdin iMX8M Plus, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Colibri iMX8X, Apalis iMX8Debian PackagesLow

Description: linux-imx-headers allow building GStreamer with ion allocator support, which is a pre-requisite for enabling VPU on some SoCs.

TOR-2159New FeatureAs a developer, I want GStreamer tests detached from the developer websiteNot applicableAutomated testingLow

Description: To ensure reproducibility, we keep our test cases detached from the developer website, since it's a wiki that can be updated by other teams without the TorizonCore team noticing it.

Initially, we only ensure that a basic pipeline works.

5.7.0-devel-202206 (Release date: 2022-06-07)
5.7.0-devel-202206 monthly pre-release
TOR-2277New FeatureAs a developer, I want to reduce the log level for Aktualizr "Offline-mode header not found"Not applicableAktualizrLow

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-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 modulesKernelLow

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

TOR-2247New FeatureAs a developer, I want to investigate the impact and effort of dropping meta-lmpNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Torizon was born as a Linux microPlatform based distro. With time, Torizon has diverged to a point where the cost of maintaining our distro while using meta-lmp may add more overhead than keeping a few things only on meta-toradex-torizon. We'll evaluate the pros and cons of keeping vs dropping it.

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 ContainersLow

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-2209New FeatureAs a developer, I want to investigate GPU/rendering HW acceleration on Chromium for i.MX SoCsVerdin iMX8M Plus, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Colibri iMX8X, Colibri iMX6, Apalis iMX8, Apalis iMX6Debian PackagesLow

Description: According to some sources on the internet, like this meta-freescale issue, hardware acceleration on Chromium and Wayland should be supported. We plan to investigate if this is true and evaluate the effort of supporting it.
In this task, we focus on GPU/rendering support. VPU/video playback will be investigated on another task, after we add VPU support in containers.

TOR-2195New FeatureAs a developer, I want to build Docker from the Moby projectNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: This is a regular maintenance task, as we want to build the Docker engine from a newer, supported version, and this requires building Docker from a different layer.

TOR-2174FixedLAVA test case for TorizonCore Base Operanting System "boot-time" is failing for Apalis iMX6Apalis iMX6KernelLow

Description: Our CI infrastructure flagged a failed test due to boot time being too long. After some investigation, we have noticed that the boot time is within reasonable limits and our tests are too strict. We add a tolerance to account for deviation from a mean value since the purpose of the test is to identify potential issues and regressions that greatly increase boot time.

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

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-2073New FeatureAs a developer, I want to integrate the offline-provisioning method in aktualizr-torizonNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: The secure offline updates MVP will allow devices to perform the updates without needing to provision themselves to the Torizon Platfom.

5.6.0 quarterly release. Learn more on https://www.toradex.com/news/torizon-core-release-5-6-0-quarterly-release
TOR-2230Fixedos-release file contains new fields not set by ToradexNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Torizon uses the meta-lmp layer from Foundries.io. During the quarterly TorizonCore maintenance, this layer version was bumped to newer release. It introduced some fields in the /etc/os-release file that have not been reviewed by Toradex. Some of them point to "foundries.io", others may not be required by Torizon. We will review and update the fields accordingly.

Workaround: We have not seen any side effects. You can safely ignore the new fields for the moment.

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.

Update: the documentation is updated and the reported issue is fixed.

TOR-2187New FeatureEnable support for "Rotary encoders connected to GPIO pins" (CONFIG_INPUT_GPIO_ROTARY_ENCODER) in TorizonCoreNot applicableKernelLow

TOR-2177New FeatureAs a developer, I want meta-toradex-torizon to have a licenseNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Currently, meta-toradex-torizon does not have a LICENSE file. We will add it.

TOR-2176New FeatureAs a user, I want documentation on synchronous remote updatesNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: In the Torizon Platform Services, you can perform synchronous updates. In other words, you can deploy OS and application updates together.

We have documented it on Torizon Remote Updates Technical Overview - Synchronous updates (5.4.0).

TOR-2175New FeatureEnable support for the Micro Crystal RV8803 RTC (CONFIG_RTC_DRV_RV8803) in TorizonCoreAll supported modulesKernelLow

Description: We enable support for the RTC Micro Crystal RV8803 in TorizonCore, shipping it as a module.
This has been requested in our community.

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 EmbeddedLow

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-2160New FeatureTorizonCore Maintenance Q1 2022Not applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: Every quarter we do some maintenance such as updating external layers in our manifests, updating software versions in meta-toradex-torizon, among others.

TOR-2147New FeatureAs a developer, I want to create a systemd service and script for provisioning devices to the Torizon Platform ServicesNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: At the moment, the only supported method for provisioning devices to the Torizon Platform Services is by manually copying the provisioning command from the web interface into the board terminal.

We are working on an implementation that will allow provisioning at scale, in other words provisioning many devices to the platform automatically. In this task, we add support on TorizonCore.

When provisioning at scale is fully implemented, we will provide documentation on how to use it.

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-2132New FeatureAs a user, I want to use the latest Portainer version in the image with pre-provisioned containersNot applicableDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: This is a regular maintenance task. Since only the minor version of Portainer has been updated, no impact is expected for TorizonCore users.
The version of Portainer included in TorizonCore with Evaluation Containers has been updated from 2.9.3 to 2.11.1.

TOR-2072New FeatureAs a developer, I want to implement the call-chains for dealing with offline-updates within libaktualizr (MVP-level)Not applicableAktualizrLow

Description: Given that the Uptane standard has accepted the PURE-2 enhancement, we at Toradex are implementing such in the aktualizr source code. This will be a fundamental part of the secure offline updates MVP being developed by Toradex.

TOR-1984New FeatureAs a user, I want Aktualizr-Torizon to be able to update the primary (OSTree) pulling objects from a local sourceNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: This task is a prerequisite for the secure offline updates MVP that we are working on. It will make it possible to perform OS offline updates.

TOR-1983New FeatureAs a developer, I want to validate the offline update metadataNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: In this task, we implement offline updates metadata validation in the libaktualizr. This is a pre-requisite for the secure offline updates MVP we plan to release.

TOR-1942New FeatureAs a developer, I want to automatically tag the repository when new container images are pushed to Docker HubNot applicableDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: We want to provide both for our developers, as well as our customers, the ability to easily find the relationship between a Docker image release and the corresponding commit. Since we publish many images, this is only possible with CI automation.

Some examples of repositories where you can find tags are the torizon-samples and the debian-docker-images.

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

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.

TOR-2156Fixedfsnotify not building correctly due to move from "master" to "main" branchNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: The fsnotify repository has renamed the "master" branch to "main", which was caught on a TorizonCore nightly build.

TOR-2152New FeatureAs a user, I want the ifupdown plugin for NetworkManager included in TorizonCoreNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: The "ifupdown" plugin for NetworkManager is included in TorizonCore and disabled by default. As stated in our article Networking with TorizonCore, please refer to the official NetworkManager docs on how to use the plugin.

TOR-2115New FeatureEnable support for the NXP PCF2127/29 RTC (CONFIG_RTC_DRV_PCF2127) in TorizonCoreAll supported modulesKernelLow

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-2110New FeatureAs a developer, I want to understand if the ifupdown plugin for NetworkManager can be shipped with TorizonCoreNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: The ifupdown plugin for NetworkManager may be useful to few TorizonCore users. We evaluate the impact of shipping TorizonCore with this plugin and, if the outcome of the evaluation is positive, we will include the plugin in upcoming TorizonCore releases.

After our evaluation, we have decided to ship TorizonCore with the plugin included and disabled by default. As stated in our article Networking with TorizonCore, please refer to the official NetworkManager docs on how to use the plugin.

Workaround: You must build a custom version of TorizonCore with the ifupdown plugin.

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

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-2071New FeatureAs a developer, I want to implement a simplified offline-update triggering mechanism for the purpose of an MVPNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: As preparation for our upcoming secure offline updates MVP, we are implementing on Aktualizr and TorizonCore a mechanism to start updates as soon as a USB stick or SD card is plugged into a carrier board. This feature will be disabled by default and current users of the Torizon Platform Services - and online remote updates - will not be affected by this new feature.

TOR-2058New FeatureAs 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.

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 PackagesLow

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-1785New FeatureAs a developer, I want to investigate how to update TorizonCore default kernel argumentsNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: While we already provide to our customers a means to customize kernel arguments in TorizonCore, this method does not support updating default arguments set at the distro level.
We are investigating the proper way to do it, motivated by the fact that at a point in the future, TorizonCore 5.x series will enter LTS status and 6.x series will be released. This major update will most likely require that we have a mechanism to updating the kernel arguments when a user updates a device from 5.x to 6.x using the Torizon Platform Services.

Our investigation indicates that OSTree already supports it, and that (1) it may be possible to upstream this optional feature to libaktualizr and (2) we can use OSTree command-line tools to add support to TorizonCore Builder.

5.5.0 (Release date: 2022-01-07)
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 EmbeddedLow

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-2049New FeatureAs a developer, I want to rebuild all containers against the latest Debian stable feedNot applicableDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: As part of our maintenance policy, we periodically rebuild the Debian containers provided for Torizon.
Your software should not be impacted, as this maintenance build only bumps the minor version of the containers. Nevertheless, you are encouraged to test your software and consider using the newer version, to benefit from bug and security fixes provided by the Debian community.
To learn more about our containers release strategy and versioning, visit the article TorizonCore Containers Tags and Versioning.

TOR-2033New FeatureAs a user, I want Aktualizr-Torizon to support external URIs for OSTree repositoriesNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: This will allow, in the future, Toradex partners and customers to host their own OSTree repos.
This ticket is a step toward reaching this goal.
Updates on the Torizon Platform Services and our public documentation will follow, yet we don't have defined dates when they will be done.

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 EmbeddedLow

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 EmbeddedLow

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.
Learn more on Debian Containers for Torizon - Docker Auto Prune

TOR-1945New FeatureAs a developer, I want to rebase the master branch with the dunfell branchNot applicableOpen EmbeddedLow

Description: This is a regular maintenance task that does not impact TorizonCore users in general. It is a step that helps Toradex to migrate to a newer release of the Yocto Project when it comes the time to start development of TorizonCore 6.x

In this task, we forward port TorizonCore specific stuff from Dunfell to master, and migrate our meta-toradex-torizon to the new override syntax, among other potential minor fixes.

TOR-1881FixedAktualizr reports an incorrect hash when it can't find the currently-running version in its targets metadataNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: Currently, when you install TorizonCore and provision it on the Torizon Platform Services, the Platform does not display the TorizonCore version that is installed on the device. This is a limitation that must be first fixed in libaktualizr.
This fix will allow users of the Platform Services to see the TorizonCore version that is installed on the board during the first installation.

TOR-1857New FeatureAs a user, I want to learn how to suspend, reboot or alter power state from within a containerNot applicableDebian Base ContainersLow

Description: It is a common application request from Toradex customers to be able to reboot, shutdown, or enter a low-power mode.
To help those customers, we investigate how to do it following best practices, being able to achieve this goal in a secure way.
As a result of this investigation, we provide public documentation on Torizon Best Practices Guide - reboot and suspend/resume from within a container.

TOR-2069New FeatureAs a developer, I want to rebase our libaktualizr fork to the master branch of the upstream projectNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: This update does not impact TorizonCore customers. As preparation for the offline-updates MVP, we rebase our fork of aktualizr/libaktualizr against the latest upstream version. We also update our client implementation to use the rebased version and test it.

TOR-2068New FeatureBreak down technical requirements for the offline-only remote updates MVPNot applicableOtherLow

Description: Toradex is working on an MVP for secure offline updates. As our investigation about offline updates progress, we are closer to releasing the MVP. From a user perspective, important decisions are:

  • Start updates when a USB stick is plugged to the board.
  • Provide clean and concise documentation
  • Generate canonicalized docker-compose files with TorizonCore Builder. This is a mechanism similar to lockfiles provided by package managers (npm, yarn, pip, among others), and a best practice for users to follow, even if they don't use our offline updates mechanism. More details about it will be provided in the upcoming documentation

TOR-2064New FeatureFork libaktualizr to prepare for offline updatesNot applicableAktualizrLow

Description: From a customer perspective this operation will be transparent and you can continue to use TorizonCore without any impact.

The Aktuaklizr implementation is composed of two parts: (1) the client implementation, which is expected to be different for different vendors, and (2) libaktualizr, the core functionality that is used by the client implementations.
As we implement secure offline updates leveraging Aktualizr, we must make changes to libaktualizr and add patches on top of it until they are upstreamed.
The TorizonCore fork of libaktualizr is made available on https://github.com/toradex/aktualizr and it must not be confused with the implementation of the client, available on https://github.com/toradex/aktualizr-torizon.

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 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 EmbeddedLow

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: While our investigation and documentation are a work-in-progress, 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

TOR-2488Known IssueWeston container VNC 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.

TOR-2486Feature RequestAs a user, I want to use the latest Portainer version in the image with pre-provisioned containersNot applicableDebian Base Containers

Description: This is a regular maintenance task. Since only the minor version of Portainer has been updated, no impact is expected for TorizonCore users.
The version of Portainer included in TorizonCore with Evaluation Containers will be updated from 2.14.2 to a newer release.

TOR-2485Feature RequestAs a developer, I want to rebuild all containers against the latest Debian stable feedNot applicableDebian Base Containers

Description: As part of our maintenance policy, we periodically rebuild the Debian containers provided for Torizon.
Your software should not be impacted, as this maintenance build only bumps the minor version of the containers. Nevertheless, you are encouraged to test your software and consider using the newer version, to benefit from bug and security fixes provided by the Debian community.
To learn more about our containers release strategy and versioning, visit the article TorizonCore Containers Tags and Versioning.

TOR-2359Known IssueRemote 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-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-2325Feature RequestTorizonCore Maintenance Q4 2022Not applicableOpen Embedded

Description: Every quarter we do some maintenance such as updating external layers in our manifests, updating software versions in meta-toradex-torizon, among others.

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.

TOR-2190Feature RequestAs a user, I want to investigate how to deploy Secure Offline Updates via local networkNot applicableAktualizr

Description: It is a common scenario to make updates over a LAN. This happens when your devices are already connected locally, but due to security reasons they cannot access the internet.
