Next release of Ubuntu Mate for Sopine
#1
When is the next release of Ubuntu Mate scheduled for? I have tried to install Ubuntu Mate on the latest version of Armbian, but the install shell script that I was told to use crashed and no one has responded to my post.

See my reply in that thread... sorry for not replying sooner... I didn't see the new message. 

There may be a new minimal build for the sopine coming down the pipeline in the next few weeks, and then hopefully a mate build for it as well... maybe Wink

Just out of curiosity, about how long will it take for Linux kernel 4.11 to make it in to the main release?

A while Smile What you're basically after is a mainline kernel,  rather than a board support package (BSP) kernel. Basically the manufacturer of the processor has provided a BSP and that was a 3.4 kernel IIRC. Simon (longsleep) has then taken that, and pulled the necessary fixes in to get it up to 3.10 (and in particular docker usable), and then other bits as needed. The guys over at sun-xi have been working on the mainlining for all the different Allwinner CPUs, and you can see the status of the A64 CPU over there on the status matrix. If you want to give a mainline build for pine64... you can give the mainline build of Armbian a try and see if it does what you want yet or not. 

I believe there is a 4.x BSP coming out of Allwinner later this year, but it will most likely be either too little too late, or another jumbled mess like previous stuff they've made available.
