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

Only on your old lubuntu image without kvm enabled. Then it should work on a more modern distro. 17.04 isn't supported anymore that's why it fails to find packages. You would have to manually download and install them from Launchpad.net. I also don't know whether 17.04 contains pi related kvm patch...

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

The generic arm64 kernels will have kvm I'm sure. I am having a bit of trouble installing the generic kernels on there because if I do an apt-get update or apt-get install linux-image-xxxx or even try to install any app I get NOT FOUND for the ports.ubuntu.com repository. Does the sources.list need...

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

Your best bet to get this working is fedora or debian. Or use the fedora uboot/firmware files to boot opensuse. The 3B+ has wifi, and that might work if you copy the correct files from raspbian. I plan on releasing 18.04 arm64 images of ubuntu when 18.04 is released at the end of the month. You'll h...

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

The code, if written correctly, will work on 32 or 64bit builds. Not sure if I have seen the new LAN7515 in the Linux source code, I have seen LAN78xx which is USB3.0 The old chip was the LAN9514 Perhaps it uses the old smsc75xx driver? Is it in mainstream Linux yet or just the Raspban fork? Driver...

Re: Upgrading to *any* ARM64 distro - with a KVM-enabled kernel?

You've just run out of space on the /boot partition. This is going to be the least of your troubles. I wouldn't want you to waste your time on this, it is probably easier to install 64bit fedora or opensuse. Alexander Graf is involved in KVM and opensuse arm, so of the two, I would say that is the m...

Re: Debian on Pi 3B & 3B+

I was thinking of copying the /lib/modules folder like we got Ubuntu Mate to work for the RPi 3B+ In the debian-installer the filesystem is compressed into the initrd. So you have to unpack it, copy across, then repack the initrd. Using this technique you should be able to use the downstream raspbe...

Thanks again PhilE. Does the pi have a special way to select which driver to use? I saw in an old thread: bcm2708.bcm2835_mmc=0 In the past I've passed on the kernel command line something like: module.blacklist=true (which is just passing an unknown parameter to the module which stops it loading) A...

They are Cd/DVD ISO debian-installer images so you don't set them up like a standard pi sd card image.

Re: Ubuntu image for the new Raspberry Pi 3 B+

The default Gpu acceleration in raspbian is not standard. Chromium in raspbian has been patched so it should have acceleration. If you switch to the vc4 driver, I think you will lose chromium acceleration in raspbian, but gain it in Firefox/chromium in *Ubuntu(mate). Ubuntu-mate has a precompiled pa...
