Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

first step :

$ git clone git://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git --single-branch --branch "packages/linux"
$ cd packages/trunk
$ git checkout fc89f9441710951d2ad565f207ecd13e57318236 #4.20.4.arch1-1
$ cd ../..
$ cp -r packages/trunk linux-git
$ rm -rf packages
$ cd linux-git
# Edit replace the PKGBUILD and 90-linux.hook with the ones below
$ makepkg -rsi #this is to confirm 4.20.4 as built on your system does not have the issue update bootloader for new kernel if needed

took ~ 13 hours (MAKEFLAGS="-j3" in makepkg.conf)

Hopefully the subsequent steps should be much quicker as only files that are changed will be rebuilt.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

I've compiled and installed linux-git 4.20.4, did grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg, but during boot process it says error: invalid cluster 0
Here's the generated grub.cfg: https://ptpb.pw/BgmS

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

@kleinepanzer can you check /boot/initramfs-linux-git.img exists please.  I think the boot entry for the linux kernel may be a sub entry of Arch linux looking at that grub.cfg.
Edit:
Building the package locally to see if I can reproduce the issue.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

/boot/initramfs-linux-git.img exists, but when I use file on it I get a bunch of filesystem errors like
[ 2763.786350] FAT-fs (sda1): error, fat_get_cluster: invalid cluster chain (i_pos 33310)

That's really bizarre, why is it broken and why do I even have vfat on my /boot partition? I don't remember choosing it hmm

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

The ESP on an EFI install will be FAT formatted and a standard location to mount the ESP is /boot.

# mkinitrd -p linux-git

Then check if file then finds the contents as 'gzip compressed data, from Unix'

I see, indeed it's the ESP.

But mkinitrd? Did you mean mkinitcpio?

I've had to mount /boot partition with errors=continue to rebuild the image, now it finally works, I see Arch Linux 4.20.4-git (tty1) login prompt. I'll start compiling 4.20.5 immediately.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

After the second part:

$ cd /linux-git/src/linux
$ git checkout v4.20.5
$ cd ../..
$ makepkg -ersi #this is to confirm 4.20.5 as built on your system does not have the issue select the default option for all prompted options

-reboot and  starting up with linux-git-4.20.5
Black screen again.
----------------------
proceeded to the third step

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

Started compiling the first bisected version - commit 221fed3a51a7.
I've booted the previous release of the installation media, mounted everything and chrooted into the main system. I've had to do su -l my-user because makepkg does not work when you a root. Here's hoping it will go smoothly.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

After the fourth step:

$ cd linux-git/src/linux/
$ git bisect $result #substitue good or bad here
$ cd ../..
$ makepkg -ersif #repeat these four lines and test the generated kernel until git has found the bad commit

-reboot and  starting up with linux-git
Black screen again.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

I can load with parameter:

module_blacklist=video

But it is not very good. Bright screen, brightness not adjustable from the keyboard.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

Oh..
I installed  linux-git-5.0
the parameter "module_blacklist=video" works only with it.
With updated linux-lts this does not work.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

@velera_cr can you try on linux-git-5.0

git revert -n 78f3ac76d9e5219589718b9e4733bee21627b3f5

then rebuild with nothing else changed it should just rebuild the asus-wmi module and see if that fixes the issue.

Assuming it is the backlight you could try the options from backlight#Kernel_command-line_options.

I'm on the commit platform/x86: asus-wmi: Tell the EC the OS will handle the display off hotkey now, and as suspected, it does not work.

Trying backlight options:
acpi_backlight=video -- black screen
acpi_backlight=vendor -- successfully shows login prompt, loads X server
acpi_backlight=native -- black screen again

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

loqs, thanks for the help!!
linux-git-5.0 with parameter:

acpi_backlight=vendor

Everything works fine!
------------------
Updated linux  4.20.4-arch1-1-ARCH to linux 4.20.11-arch2-1-ARCH. With:

acpi_backlight=vendor

works fine.
