None of the Linux images with framebuffer for DE10-Nano work

Hi, I was trying to get started with Azure Edge IoT, using the guide:
https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/articles/guide/install-the-azure-iot-edge-runtime....

 

The URL for downloading the image is broken:

http://terasic.com/downloads/cd-rom/de10-nano/DE10-Nano-Cloud-Native.zip

 

I found this image on the Terasic file server, but it doesn't boot, seems to get stuck at random steps after the framebuffer is initialized. I also plugged in a HDMI monitor to exclude UART buffer/FIFO issues and the monitor is not turning on.

This is seen on two different DE10-Nano devices that I have tried.

 

I also tried other images from Terasic:

Default SD card it shipped with - same issue as above

DE10_Nano_LXDE                       - same issue as above

DE10_Nano_Xfce.img                 - this doesn't load the kernel and fails with "ethernet address not set"

 

When I use a custom Yocto build of my own without frame buffer, everything works. Is there a mirror where I can find a working image to follow this guide?

Hi,


I am glad to hear that the issue is resolved after fixing the MSEL selection.
