Librem Mini fail to load firmwares

Hello,

Yesterday I have performed an update of PureOS, and shut down the OS before going to bed.

Today, starting the Mini PC, the monitor didn’t wake up. The Librem Mini boot fine though, since I can connect over SSH.

Reading the content of dmesg, I see several error messages regarding various firmware the kernel is unable to load, including the GPU firmware.

You can find the out put of dmesg at https://gist.github.com/montaropdf/7b9dd69213451cca38d8a78304cfd32b#file-librem-mini-pureos-firmaware-fail-to-load-dmesg-txt

Any idea what could be wrong?

I am using PureBoot.

Are you connecting via HDMI or Display Port? I’ve had weird issues with the HDMI not connecting properly so I stick with Display Port now.

Which version of PureBoot are you using? ( There is some issues with it that cause this on displayport ).

I use HDMI, I don’t have any displayport cable at hand.

As for firmware, all the proprietary firmwares are not installed in PureOS. So those firmware errors are normal.

Here the issue I am referring to with coreboot -> https://source.puri.sm/coreboot/coreboot/-/issues/13
