RockPro64 Official Kernel Support
#1
When can we expect full support for the RockPro64 in the regular Linux kernel? I'm just curious because it would be kind of nice if it were possible to use an official distro image (i.e. Debian) instead of having to depend on Ayufan and others to keep making images for the RockPro64.

Open source developers are working toward this direction using SPI Flash to host uboot.

I think "don't hold your breathe" is a more realistic answer. Check the wiki section about what works, and especially the link at the bottom of that section to the RockChip 4.4/mainline status and you realise why this is still very much a hacker board.

Getting uboot in SPI will be a great step. The 4.20 kernel support usually means the device tree has been up streamed but it doesn't, e.g., sort full open source graphics support for T-860.

I think the Support on 4.20, should be better than what we have now.
But its a Work in progress.

On the Open Source Graphics Driver, there are great expectations, at least from me since there have been very good advances on it, with faster implementations that the existing one.

You can check the last developments on it, directly from Alyssa blog at X.Org Developer’s Conference
This new Driver targets:

– Midgard (Mali Txxx)
- Bifrost (Mali Gxx)

But it is Also a Work in Progress, in October were made great advances on it.
