Crash without information


I am trying to compile the swift runtime from apple in the the HiKey board, using the out of the box operating system or the latest debían jessie in a microsd. In both cases I follow these steps:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install git cmake ninja-build clang python uuid-dev libicu-dev icu-devtools libbsd-dev libedit-dev libxml2-dev libsqlite3-dev swig libpython-dev libncurses5-dev pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev autoconf libtool systemtap-sdt-dev

sudo apt-get install screen

sudo reboot now


mkdir swift-source

cd swift-source

git clone

./swift/utils/update-checkout --clone

./swift/utils/build-script -r -t

After some minutes, the system crashes and reboots. No error is shown in any log.

I do all the steps using ssh.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

    Jose M.


Hi there,

I’m a bit suspect this is related with thermal issue, could you please try below the method is shared by Jorge in the thread:

“As temporary solution just add the following two lines to /etc/rc.local so it looks like follows:”

test -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key || dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server

modprobe hisi-acpu-cpufreq
echo "power_allocator" > /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/policy


I will discuss internally to check if we can enable thermal management module properly by default.


Now the board seems to work properly. The drawback is the reduction of the frequency, though I think it is better than a reboot.

Thanks for your help.
