Odrouid XU4 with Fedora

Unread postby tuxfriend » Mon Jul 17, 2017 7:53 pm

Hi there,
I've two XU4: one with Fedora25 and handmade Kernel 4.2.0+ #1 (based on viktike image) and one with native Fedora 24 with kernel 4.7.2-201. Update to newer kernel didn't work because it doesn't build a suitable initramfs.

Has anybody tried this?

Greetings
Andreas

More Information:
Dracut fails to build a bootable image for Odroid XU4 for the 4.7.2-201 fc24 initramfs.
it seems that Dracut fails to create the Early CPIO image it needs to boot the system.

Following are initial comparisons from the previous 4.6.6-300.fc24.armv7hl initramfs
image.
