is anyone here using Linux Kernel 5.2 with Lima Driver on the Pinebook ?

i want to give it a shot, but have not net informed howto install a custom kernel on the pinebook. 
Maybe soon i will find the time to check it out Smile

Is there already some experimental package around ? Smile

Thanks

Matthias!

The Manjaro for Pinebook images now use kernel 5.2 if you want to try it out without compiling the kernel yourself.

Is Lima functional on those?

To be honest, nothing appears outwardly different and I never thought to check it out thoroughly after the update. I'll run lspci -v when I get home to it, unless someone else wants to beat me to it.

Code:
inxi -G

shows

Code:
Graphics:  Device-1: sun50i-a64-mali driver: lima v: kernel

I'm going to dig out my hdmi adapter and try that out. Maybe there's been a positive change.
