RockPro64 eMMC mrfixit to 5.9
#1
Hi,

I just received my RockPro64, very cool, I want to use it with a 10GbE NIC.

I tried a few distros but rockpro64-debian-mrfixit-190531 was the only one I could get booting from eMMC.


I upgraded to Debian 10, the kernel stays at 4.4, trying to upgrade to a Debian kernel fails (thankfully) probably because the partition is RO.

OK so I see a rock64 5.9 here, as debs:

https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/linux-m...l/releases

Any idea if this 5.9 supports booting from eMMC, if so, what is the easiest way to get this kernel deployed, right now I'm just connected up with a keyboard and monitor, can I just remount RW, I read something that suggests I have to interrupt the boot and do something in u-boot but I'm unsure on that, if I have to do it this way, do I have to use a serial console or something?

Cheers
Richard

Lol, I should say the reason I want the new kernel is because the 10GbE card I want to use doesn't get detected, pretty sure it's a AQN-107.
