1) Raspberry Pi firmware (100MB FAT32 for booting on Pi3 B+)
2) The file system itself
Note: the kernel *must have* KVM enabled, and it must be ARM64 architecture.
Internet/network card support + a minimal/full GUI would be nice too for a noob like me! I don't care if it's experimental - I just need to test Qemu-System-Aarch64 with -enable-kvm flag (that's the only software I plan to use!).
It should be in the same format as to how MaxVMH provided his Ubuntu Mate images, albeit these were 32-bit and KVM was disabled, alas:
So far I know for a fact that Debian and OpenSUSE both have 64-bit/KVM images available - but I'm not technical enough to get them onto a Raspberry Pi 3 b+. There may be other distros out there that have 64-bit/KVM - or the kernels can be upgraded to include it - preferably Ubuntu, Debian or Fedora.MaxVMH wrote: ↑Sun Apr 01, 2018 7:36 pmI was able to make a bootable USB image of Ubuntu Mate for the Raspberry Pi 3B & 3B+. Thanks to everyone who participated in this thread
I made torrents of the images:
If anyone prefers a direct download instead of a torrent, send me a PM (not posting those publicly to save my bandwidth)
£50 may not be much - merely an incentive for providing me this much needed favour; any help would be much appreciated - and don't forget to PM me your PayPal addy when done.
