Kernel for A64 git
#1
To easily build the Kernel as provided in the BSP i have added it to Git including patches to make it actually compile and work suitably:

https://github.com/longsleep/linux-pine6...ne64-hacks

Use it together with my build tools at https://github.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image to create working and bootable Linux images from source.

The Kernel and U-Boot from the BSP uses the device tree from https://github.com/longsleep/build-pine6...pine64.dts and a suitable Kernel configuration is at https://github.com/longsleep/linux-pine6..._defconfig

Start with reading https://github.com/longsleep/build-pine6.../README.md and do not forget about U-Boot https://github.com/longsleep/build-pine6...ostprocess

I publish compiled Linux Kernel builds for image builders from that tree. This gives you Kernel, initrd, dtb and modules which can be easily combined with any rootfs.

To make your own Linux image with this Kernel, check out my simple image releases which combine U-Boot and a suitable disk layout at http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=99 for details and download.

Released tarballs are signed with a detached GPG signature (.asc) signed by my personal key 0x090EF0DB. Get the key and verify that the download is intact and unmodified.
Code:
gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 090EF0DB
gpg --with-fingerprint arch-pine64-*.xz.asc


To update both Kernel an U-Boot to the latest releases, run the following commands (as root):
Code:
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image/master/simpleimage/platform-scripts/pine64_update_uboot.sh)
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image/master/simpleimage/platform-scripts/pine64_update_kernel.sh)
and reboot.

This Kernel does automatically generate a locally administered MAC address for the Ethernet (eth0) interface. Some networks might not be able to handle those correctly. The recommended solution is to manually set the MAC address to the one which is printed on the back of the Pine64 by adding it to /boot/uEnv.txt with a line like ethaddr=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx. The MAC addess is the lower number on the barcode label on the back of your Pine board. Start from the left and add a colon every two chars. So far they all seem to start with 00:06:dc making this the vendor prefix.


Other experimental Kernel variants:

drm **OUTDATED**
The drm Kernel uses another display driver. It is experimental - do not use for production. It is slow with X11 and requires additional work to get it running at all. See http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?t...m#pid17035 for instructions and details. The source code is at https://github.com/longsleep/linux-pine6...ks-1.2-drm



Your feedback is most welcome.

I got (last night) a working android kernel with linux partition, but this is far way better...

Hdmi, etc working?
EDIT: **** I just read that ethernet usb etc only works on 3.10 bsp... Sorry, my bad****

Nothing to add... *applause*
Hope this is the begining of a beautiful pine+Linux marriage.

At the moment I do not care much about HDMI and did not test it yet.

Works like a charm!

Is there any equivalent to fw_printenv/fw_setenv available for allwinner/android u-boot? I just want to adapt u-571 for the pine64.

I am not completely sure what you mean but if you are looking for ways to modify/extend the u-boot environments from Linux either put a valid compiled environment into a uboot.env file of the boot partition or use the uEnv.txt file at the same location.

Other boards/u-boot versions use a specific region on the sd card (or internal flash memory) to store the compiled u-boot environment which is accessible via fw_printenv/fw_setenv then. The configuration file `/etc/fw_env.config` contains information about the device, the offset and the environment size.

Your u-boot version uses a file instead of a memory region to store the compiled environment. This file seems to be inaccessible to fw_printenv ("Bad CRC"). Is there another way to create/alter the compiled environment?

Yes - use mkenvimage (http://free-electrons.com/blog/mkenvimag...generator/) which is also a part of u-boot-tools (if at a reasonable version). Make sure to have correct settings for redundancy (-r) and size (-s) as defined in the U-Boot config file.

If you use my U-Boot tree (which has CONFIG_SYS_REDUNDAND_ENVIRONMENT and CONFIG_ENV_SIZE 128KB to be compatible with Ubuntu Snappy) use something like
Code:
mkenvimage -r -s 131072 -o /media/boot/uboot.env uboot.txt
.

HDMI works now. It requires that you update U-Boot as well. Easiest is to use my latest simpleimage build from http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=99

I imported the changes from the 1.2 BSP release to https://github.com/longsleep/linux-pine6....65-bsp1.2 on top of the first BSP.

As there are a lot of changes and GitHub cannot show them all, see http://paste.ubuntu.com/15174117/ for an overview.
