Hi,

 

It boots fine on DE1 Dev Kit, but not on our PCB, why?

 

Thanks in advance ,,

Are you trying to use the same Kernel image you compiled on the Dev1 Kit on another custom board? If so, there lies your problem. Is the hardware on the custom board exactly same as that of the Dev Kit, in terms of FPGA, USB, etc? If there are any differences, the kernel will go into crash as the appropriate drivers have not been included in the kernel build. I would suggest you rebuild the kernel with the drivers for the new board and then try booting again.

I'm getting nearly the same error with brand new Arria 10 dev kits using the unmodified sd card it came installed with: 

 

VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) on device 179:2. 

devtmpfs: mounted 

Freeing unused kernel memory: 332K (8067c000 - 806cf000) 

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x0000000b

Hi Richards, 

 

Could you post the complete kernel dump. It would point out which module failed to load and has error. Could you also point out which kernel image you used and which Kit exact model?
