Call for test the XU4 Linux Kernel 6.6 LTS

Post by mdrjr »

A long, long time ago, in August of 2014, we launched the world's first true HMP octa-core powered ARM single board computer.
Although our XU4 series has been on the market for almost 10 years, it is still a steady seller with thousands of units shipped every month.

Ubuntu 14.04 with kernel 3.10 was released in 2014,
Since then, we have continuously updated kernels to 4.4, 4.9, 4.14, 5.4, 6.1 versions, and today we are releasing version 6.6
The latest Kernel 6.6 LTS source code is available here : https://github.com/hardkernel/linux/tree/odroid-6.6.y

Its the usual, we are still working on this tree and it will be the base kernel.
I may have forgot many things...
Any PR is appreciated.

Will definitely give this a go, thank you for the continued support.

The XU4 is still my workhorse device.

How do we test this on our Odroid device?

Hard to believe. Its 9 years since I moved from the Odroid-X to the XU4. Apart from the power supply failing about 6 years ago, its been powered 24/7 running random things for me. Such a great bit of kit.

I have been running this kernel on my Armbian/OMV HC1 NAS using the kernel from the PR above and observed no issues.

We've released a new Ubuntu 24.04 OS image for XU4/XU3/HC1/HC2/MC1 models with the following features.
- Ubuntu 24.04 LTS
- Kernel 6.6 LTS
- Custom-built Chromium browser (version 123) which supports the EGL/GPU acceleration for WebGL
- Custom-built Qt5 libraries to use OpenGL-ES HW acceleration on X11
- Added 1920x720 HDMI driver for better display compatibility


Hardware accelerated WebGL works fine with a modern web-browser on the Mate/X11.
