Re: oFono Version 1.31 ofonod crash


Hi Sergei,

Thanks for the advice, the latest ofono in oe-core master is 1.32, but
I am in branch Hardknott, so I copied ofono 1.32 from master to my
layer running Hardknott branch, but I could not build ofono 1.32 in

ERROR: ParseError at
unparsed line: 'SYSTEMD_SERVICE:${PN} = "ofono.service"'

I used ofono 1.30 and connman 1.37 in Zeus, both worked fine , but
both connman 1.39 and ofono 1.31 failed to work properly in oe-core
Hardknott branch, to narrow down if it is ofono issue or Yocto OE
build or other library issue, I was able to build ofono 1.30 for
Hardknott, I can confirm that ofono 1.30 failed just like the 1.31
stuck at the statement add_serial_device.

ofonod[2806]: ../ofono-1.30/plugins/udevng.c:add_serial_device()
Device is missing required OFONO_DRIVER property
ofonod[2806]: ../ofono-1.30/plugins/udevng.c:add_serial_device()
Device is missing required OFONO_DRIVER property
ofonod[2806]: ../ofono-1.30/plugins/udevng.c:add_serial_device()
Device is missing required OFONO_DRIVER property

If I run ofono 1.30 built from Zeus build, the ofonod would pass
missing OFONO_DRIVER property and kept it work:

ofonod[3712]: ../ofono-1.30/plugins/udevng.c:add_serial_device()
Device is missing required OFONO_DRIVER property
ofonod[3712]: ../ofono-1.30/plugins/udevng.c:create_modem()
ofonod[3712]: ../ofono-1.30/plugins/udevng.c:create_modem() driver=ubloxqmi
ofonod[3712]: ../ofono-1.30/src/modem.c:ofono_modem_create() name:
(null), type: ubloxqmi
ofonod[3712]: ../ofono-1.30/plugins/udevng.c:setup_ubloxqmi()

So I don't think it is an oFono issue, but rather an OE Yocto build or
library issue, can anyone run oFono in oe-core Hardknott branch?

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Hi jupiter,

Please try to update ofono to the latest release. Seems to be a library
incompatibility issue or something like that.

Yours sincerely,

The build was fine, but running the v1.31 ofono.service crashed at
udevng.c missing OFONO_DRIVER property, the ofono.service was repeated
to be restarted every 6 seconds:


ofonod[9005]: ../ofono-1.31/plugins/udevng.c:add_serial_device()
Device is missing required OFONO_DRIVER property
ofonod[9005]: ../ofono-1.31/plugins/udevng.c:add_serial_device()
Device is missing required OFONO_DRIVER property

I am not quite sure if it is ofono 1.31 problem or oe-core problem, could anyone have a look at and advise? Let me
know if you need more debug information.

Thank you.
