Hi,

I have followed the steps on a previous post ( https://forum.up-community.org/discussion/3920/solved-problem-with-bringing-lora-server-on-upsquared-edge-computer) to resolve the _lgw connect () did not return success _ issue but still I am getting the errors (OS- Ubuntu 18.04). I tried to reinstall the OS (downgrading to Ubuntu 16.04) now i am getting hardware errors. Please refer to the image attached

please help

    Hello @gvnura

    That error is strange, but please do not use Ubuntu 16.04 anymore.

    You should install Ubuntu 18.04 as per our procedure (including our kernel): https://github.com/up-board/up-community/wiki/Ubuntu_18.04
    Then install the SPI ACPI override: https://github.com/up-board/up-community/wiki/Pinout_UP2#spi-ports

    Then follow the procedure for the lora driver and packet forwarder but please review the configuration files and update to use the correct frequencies for the 915Mhz version:
    https://github.com/AAEONAEU-SW/packet_forwarder/tree/master/lora_pkt_fwd

    Editing the global_conf.json file

    also please use this as reference to update the global_conf.json for your specific location: https://github.com/TheThingsNetwork/gateway-conf

    I share my test image with you for SPI to LoRa testing, click the link below to download the image file
    2018-12-17-03-ip68gateway-img
    Please unzip the image file and put the file to your USB drive, then use Clonezilla to restore the image
    In Clonezilla, please choose "Expert mode" and enable "icds" and -k1 option. OS login password is 123456.

    How to test
    Open linux terminal and test the commands below

    cd /opt/ttn-geteway/lora_gateway/util_spi_stress
    ./util_spi_stress

    If LoRA & SPI is working properly, you will see the messages like below

    If you want to test the GPIO430 to reset LoRa, try the command below

    echo 430 > /sys/class/gpio/export
    echo out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio430/direction
    echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio430/value
    echo 0 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio430/value

    Next, just change the config file to 915Mhz frequency

    @DCleri @rogertsai(AAEON) I'm going to install Ubuntu on an AAEON AOIT-IP6801, Is Ubuntu 18.04 preferred over Ubuntu 20.04? Thanks!

    While following the directions to install Ubuntu 18.04, when I execute:

    sudo apt-get autoremove --purge 'linux-.*generic'
    

    I get the following error:

    E: Aborting removal of the running kernel
    dpkg: error processing package linux-image-5.4.0-77-generic (--remove):
     installed linux-image-5.4.0-77-generic package pre-removal script subprocess returned error exit status 1
    dpkg: too many errors, stopping
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     linux-image-5.4.0-77-generic
    Processing was halted because there were too many errors.
    

    I'm not able add the AAEON kernel update and rebooting results in

    Alert! /dev/mapper//ubuntu--vg-ubuntu--lv does not exist.  Dropping to a shell! 
    

    I see the same behavior if I try to install Ubuntu 20.04 following the directions from the Wiki. I'm pretty much dead in the water at this point. I've successfully setup a AOIT-IP6801 in the past following the instructions for Ubuntu 16.04. Ideally, I would make the jump to Ubuntu 20.04.

    Any advice on how to proceed?

    Have you tried to reinstall your ubuntu OS with ISO below, and then follow the steps from UP Wiki
    https://releases.ubuntu.com/bionic/ubuntu-18.04.5-desktop-amd64.iso
    or 20.04.2
    https://releases.ubuntu.com/20.04/ubuntu-20.04.2.0-desktop-amd64.iso

    @rogertsai(AAEON) I followed the instructions for Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 20.04 . I pretty much had the same issues for both distros. FWIW, using the instructions for Ubuntu 16.04 I was able to successfully get my gateway configured. Have the instructions for 18.04 and 20.04 been tested or just copied from 16.04 and modified? From my experience they do not work.

    @gerfen

    What the step you do when you execute the command below to remove all the generic installed kernel
    sudo apt-get autoremove --purge 'linux-.*generic'

    In general, you should hit the Y key to continue the operation and then choose as the answer when you see the message about kernel removal

    BTW, what’s BIOS version you use?

    @rogertsai(AAEON) I'm just getting back around to trying to install Ubuntu 18.04. My BIOS version is

    AIOT-IP6801 R1.3 (AP68AM13) (09/28/2018)
    

    Note that I have screenshots from installing Ubuntu if those would be helpful. Here are my full logs from following the instruction in the Wiki:

    You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    You should select No on the question "Abort Kernel Removal" otherwise it won't work
