Known Issues

  • BlueZ has been upgraded from 5.48 to 5.50. Due to this change, some features of GATT BT profiles are failing.
    • An RPi device with bluez upgraded to 5.50 is not getting discovered from another RPi device that runs on bluez 5.48 or bluez 5.50.
    • This RPi device can be discovered from an Android phone. So, failure is in RPi to RPi discovery.
    • Further steps for GATT connection, discovering services, reading or writing characteristics between RPi and RPi are blocked due to this.
  • Wayland version is kept to 1.11 instead of the version specified in the recipe of Yocto 2.6 Thud.
  • Mesa version is kept to 17.1.7 instead of the version specified in the recipe of Yocto 2.6 Thud.
    • The preferred version of Wayland and Mesa in Yocto 2.6 Thud are 1.16 and 18.1.9, but the build 84 is using 1.11 and 17.1.7 due to a dependency in a prebuilt binary gpu-libs.
