Update 22.02.2019 Feature-complete Debian build - SDIO WiFi/BT / PCIe / 3D / 2D
(02-01-2019, 04:18 PM)Mrfixit2001 Wrote: There is an updated release coming (I expect next week sometime) which will include additional kernel drivers and patches, including some for PCIe Smile That should take care of the remaining issues being experienced.

I've currently only provided arm32 images (kernel is 64-bit with a 32-bit userspace), but I can work on providing an arm64 image in my next release as well if there's a need for it.

At some point after that I'll work on a desktop image as well so you don't have to worry about the hassle of installing all the packages yourselves.

As for how to get SDIO, WIFI, and BT working in the kernel, I haven't published my kernel source itself yet. But I did write this patch for Batocera today which should outline the minimum requirements to get these features enabled. Hasn't been tested yet, as my kernel has an enormous amount of backports from mainline in it so I had to write this patch specifically for the "stock" rockchip kernel. Basically I'm saying I cannot guarantee how it will function without all the driver updates I've back-ported, but I think it's sufficient to enable everything.

I'm pretty excited about the work you are doing. A functional desktop environment with GPU support would make this board amazing. I put the board down after a while due to the software situation, but this build really reinvigorated my interest.

Great job so far!
