Re: Help me to benchmark Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+

RPi3 B+, not overclocked, on-demand CPU governor, running gentoo-on-rpi3-64bit (same system as Gavinmc42, above), but: no desktop running, benchmark was invoked from a console prompt (see tail of post for details); the RPi3 B+ has a decent heatsink (with third-party thermal compound) attached; and I...

Hey, no problem, glad it has at least got you some way towards what you were looking for ^-^ As to the reward - if you still feel you'd like to give it, I'd be happiest if you just choose a charitable cause that appeals to you, and send the £50 there. Also, I hope you get your build issues sorted: t...

Etcher not fast enough :( Might need some better SD cards too Will it boot 3B+ from a 32GB USB drive like my Raspbian Pi3's? I have no idea if the standard dance of rebooting your target RPi3 B+ with "program_usb_boot_mode=1" set in its /boot/config.txt works or not (to set the relevant OTP bit on ...

Re: £50 reward: 64-bit Linux *any distro* on RPi3B+ with a KVM-enabled kernel!

Not sure how sakaki was able to install that qemu-system-aarch64 because the process doesn't appear straightforward. Gentoo features a different software/package system compared to what I'm used to with Ubuntu/Debian - seems to attempt a compile and build of the latest versions every time using som...

Re: £50 reward: 64-bit Linux *any distro* on RPi3B+ with a KVM-enabled kernel!

It would be interesting to document the process of how you were able to take that distribution, like any arm64 distribution, and repackage it with a KVM-enabled kernel. And, just out of curiosity, are there any guides published on the Internet right now that resemble the process you undertook? It's...

Re: £50 reward: 64-bit Linux *any distro* on RPi3B+ with a KVM-enabled kernel!

Hi again, So, I have made a tweaked version of the current (v1.2.1) gentoo-on-rpi3-64bit image with a custom kernel, added a (baseline) build of app-emulation/qemu (aarch64 target only), and packaged this as a bootable 64-bit Gentoo image, suitable for the RPi3 B and B+. You can download the custom ...

Re: £50 reward: 64-bit Linux *any distro* on RPi3B+ with a KVM-enabled kernel!

OK, so for fun I just built a custom kernel with the above 3 options enabled, and /dev/kvm now shows up (on a 64-bit RPi3B+ Gentoo system booted under it). I have no idea whether this will be usable for what you need, but I'll see if I can package it up, so you can at least try it out. I'll post her...

If you are running the v1.2.1 gentoo-on-rpi3-64bit image, and having trouble with the LAN7515 on your RPi3B+, I've just pushed a new binary kernel package, which contains some fixes. To get it, open a terminal, become root (default password: raspberrypi64) and issue: pi64 ~ # emaint sync --repo rpi3...

Re: arm64 and the pi

There is also a bootable 64-bit Gentoo image available for the RPi3, please see this post.
I have been informed by a user that this will also boot on a RPi2 v1.2 if you do:

Code: Select all

# cp /boot/bcm2710-rpi-3-b.dtb /boot/bcm2709-rpi-2-b.dtb
but I have not verified that personally.
