Known Firmware Issues

This page lists all of the currently identified issues in the Omega OS. The issues are separated into general firmware issues and Console firmware issues.

Issue Listing

  • Cannot flash Arduino Dock if arduino-dock-2 is installed when LEDE package repos are active
    • Root Cause:
      • The LEDE repo has avrdude version 6.3, which has a bug that prevents access to GPIOs, so the microcontroller cannot be flashed
    • Resolution:
      • The Onion repos have avrdude version 6.1 which works
      • Option 1: Install arduino-dock-2 before enabling the LEDE package repos
      • Option 2: If already installed:
        • run opkg remove avrdude
        • deactivate the LEDE package repos by commenting them out in /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf
        • run opkg update
        • install again but from the Onion repo: opkg install avrdude
