Prototype mainline kernel LibreELEC image for C1/Meson8

Post by chewitt » Thu Apr 16, 2020 2:05 am

In short; Linux 5.7 (slightly before 5.7-rc1 so shows as 5.6.0) with in-kernel lima GPU drivers, mesa 20.1, and Kodi v19-pre-Alpha code running on the GBM/V4L2 code-path. The main credit belongs to Martin Blumenstingl who's been on a one-man mission to bring up board support for Meson 8/8b/8m2 hardware in the mainline kernel.

Shaky video first-boot footage can be seen in the following LE forum thread: https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread/21798-meson-8-lives/

No immediate plans to start releasing images although sources are in the linux-amlogic branch in my LE github repo. Expect bugs :)

Great work! Any idea if it can reboot? I remember it didn't work with mainline c1

Honestly no idea about reboot, but that's usually due to SD cards and voltages or maybe on of the power domains needing some always-on treatment. I need to acquire a C1 for more testing.
