An unofficial Debian Installer for Pinebook Pro
(12-09-2019, 05:12 AM)danielt Wrote: The kernel is handled by the package manager (it's just a ` make bindeb-pkg` from the kernel build system though) with a tiny hack thrown in  to ensure the kernel is uncompressed when it is installed to /boot (the u-boot distro boot protocol doesn't work with compressed kernels).

However the kernel is just a download rather than a proper apt repo so there is no kernel upgrade path. A PPA is a good idea although hopefully it can be obsoleted even more quickly than my installer: providing the fuel guage driver and the panel-simple update get upstreamed this cycle PPA can be obsolete as soon as Debian adopts v5.6 kernel!

This has me salivating. I'm easily excited, I guess. :-)
