Visual troubleshooting grid

Applicable for STM32MP13x lines, STM32MP15x lines

Some typical issues related to the visual domain are listed below. Solutions or debugging methods are proposed for these issues.

If your issue is not listed, try also looking in the articles in the visual or troubleshooting grids categories.

The psplash-drm userland splash screen is running and is then the DRM master, avoiding other DRM applications to access to DRM/KMS. Stop this psplash-drm application with the command below before running your use case:


Note: You may need to enter "export QT_QPA_EGLFS_ALWAYS_SET_MODE=1" before running your Qt application. For further information, refer to the Qt documentation.

 echo 32 > /sys/class/backlight/5a000000.dsi.0/brightness
sh: write error: No such device or address

On this board, the panel backlight is related to a MIPI® DSI panel. This backlight can be modified only if the panel is already powered on. That is probably not the case here.
The panel must restart before modifying its backlight. To do so, start any display-related application. For further information, refer to DRM KMS overview and Wayland Weston overview articles.

This trace indicates that the TZC internal peripheral is detecting a "permission violation" made by the master whose AXI ID is 0x403. It corresponds to the LTDC internal peripheral (LTDC NSAID=0b0011. For further information, refer to the STM32 reference manuals).
Some Linux® Kernel DRM/KMS module drivers are probably missing in the system. As there is probably a display splashscreen in U-Boot, the LTDC display internal peripheral is clocked and is running. When the user initiates the power sequence, as there is no DRM/KMS driver in the system, the display-related clocks are not switched off. The LTDC then continues to make erratic illegal accesses to the memory, that are catched by the TZC internal peripheral. OP-TEE/TZC detects this abnormal behavior and then stops the system and logs this trace.
To fix this issue, please update your Linux® Kernel configuration with all the missing drivers.

Maybe the GPU reserved memory area in the kernel device tree is not aligned with the board DDR memory size. Have a look at the "gpu_reserved" entry in the kernel device tree, and update it if necessary.

Weston is using pixman software composition instead of GPU hardware composition. This may be because you have not accepted the EULA at the beginning of the build...

 cat /etc/default/weston

Please comment the "pixman" line in the file "/etc/default/weston"

 cat /etc/default/weston
 systemctl stop Weston-launch
Failed to stop Weston-launch.service: Unit Weston-launch.service not loaded.
 systemctl stop Weston-graphical-session

Please remove the capital letter in the word Weston. The correct command is:

 systemctl restart weston-graphical-session

Weston is probably started with the "weston" user. The correct commands are:

 su -l "weston" -c "weston-simple-egl"
 su -l "weston" -c "glmark2-es2-wayland"
 systemctl stop Weston@root.service
Failed to stop Weston.service: Unit Weston.service not loaded.
 systemctl stop weston
Failed to stop weston.service: Unit weston.service not loaded.
 systemctl stop weston-launch
Failed to stop weston-launch.service: Unit weston-launch.service not loaded.

Please use the full Weston service named "weston-graphical-session". The correct command is:

 systemctl stop weston-graphical-session

Note: You can list all systemctl services with the following command:

 systemctl list-units | grep -i weston 
 weston-image mypicture.bmp
mypicture.bmp: unrecognized file header 0x42 0x4d 0x1e 0x51

"weston-image" small application supports only jpeg, png and webp image files. Please convert your ".bmp" image file into one of these supported image file formats.

Note: The official source code of "weston-image" is in the file image.c and the related error message is in image-loader.c.

There may be a timestamping problem, or this computer is too slow.

This message is typically displayed when the GStreamer A/V sync drops some frames. This may be due to a decoder that is too slow, badly timestamped buffers, or a badly formed container (.ts, .3gp, .mp4, .avi, ...).
To proceed with investigations, refer to the article How to profile video framerate.

Could not load BMP file

Make sure the loader of the bmp file format,, is present in /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/. Otherwise, remove /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache, copy the file from distrib build to /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/, then run "/usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache" to reload the loaders.
