System Package v1.00

Released: 05-22-2019

Change Log

  • Initial release

Known Issues

  • DRAM is capped to 2400MHz. This is not a hardware problem, it is an issue somewhere in hostboot that is being actively worked. 2666MHz DIMMs installed will function at 2400MHz pending a PNOR update to enable 2666MHz support.
  • The BMC kernel (incorrectly) detects an SPI master collision on bus 12, yielding a never ending stream of warnings from the i2c core. As this is not a trivial fix given the state of the ASpeed i2c drivers, and the spew is mostly harmless, the decision was made to ship anyway instead of incurring a lengthy delay to rewrite the drivers. If console access to the BMC is desired over serial, "dmesg -n 1" after login will silence the warnings on the console. This issue will be fixed in a future BMC firmware update.
