I’ve build a custom image with buildroot-2022.11. I can boot to the system. At the moment I try to debug the PWMAO_A. I make it work with DietPi OS Post. Now I try to reproduce this in my custom image.
The commands from my previous post are not working as expected. There are some odd outputs in the kernel logs that I quite don’t understand. This at boot time.
[ 0.081403] reg-fixed-voltage regulator-flash_1v8: Failed to register regulator: -517 [ 0.081747] reg-fixed-voltage regulator-vcc_1v8: Failed to register regulator: -517 [ 0.081838] reg-fixed-voltage regulator-vcc_3v3: Failed to register regulator: -517 [ 0.081976] reg-fixed-voltage regulator-vddao_1v8: Failed to register regulator: -517
I don’t now how to debug this. I use the exact same
meson-g12a-pwmao-a-on-gpioao-11.dtbo . I can see the corresponding pwmchip
# cat /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip0/device/modalias of:NpwmT(null)Camlogic,meson-g12a-ao-pwm-cd # cat /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip2/device/modalias of:NpwmT(null)Camlogic,meson-g12a-ao-pwm-ab # <- Need this one # cat /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip4/device/modalias of:NpwmT(null)Camlogic,meson-g12a-ee-pwm
When I try to enable PIN40 through the pwmchip2 I see this in the kernel logs

Are there any specific kernel option I need to set? Something ARM or Amlogic specific drivers? How can I debug this?
I also see this on boot. Can it be somehow related?

It don’t hurt to ignore this error but connection to AP seems a bit delayed. Is the timespan ok?
