Linux for Rockpro64
#1
Hi

My Rockpro64 is in transit!, will not be long now, unless it languishes in UK customs.

Looking at this forum and the Wiki, I cannot find anything on a Linux system.

As  it is a new system, I suppose that we will have to compile our own kernel.   I have had a look at the Rockchip git pages.  There is a LOT of info there, it will be a severe learning curve to  read, understand and pick out the apposite  parts!

It would be very nice if Pine could add a quick tutorial on what is the best build environment, Rockchip have a good page:-

http://rockchip.wikidot.com/linux-user-guide

Is this the way to go? or is there a better document.

I am extremely rusty on kernel config and compilation, the last time I did it in anger was  years ago on Slack version 0.98  on a dozen 3.5inch floppies !!

as I say, a steep relearning curve.

regards

Patrick
