I have no idea what you mean (he says, looking at his groaning bookshelves, various pictures and other artefacts (some signed), oh, and the wife who I met via a Discworld related event.Djelibeybi wrote: ↑Wed May 13, 2020 7:13 amThanks. If you have any questions or issues, just let me know. We should be releasing Oracle Linux 8 Update 2 soon too and I'll be sure to let everyone know when that happens.

Good question. I can (and will) ask our kernel devs, but in the meantime, I guess you could just try it and see if it works.procount wrote: Is it modifiable such that it can be relocated to other partitions? (i.e. is it sufficient to strip out UBoot and boot the kernel using the standard Raspberry pi bootloader, or does it need something more?)
From our boot engineer: "It should work but have not tried it . One needs to update config.txt and cmdline.txt under /boot/efi to point to the kernel, initramfs and device tree image (inorder to bypass the uboot). copy those imgaes under /boot/efi/. I would suggest to have a backup of original config.txt to restore the system back."
Thank you for the links.Djelibeybi wrote: ↑Tue May 12, 2020 9:03 pmHey folks,
Oracle recently released our latest Arm port of Oracle Linux which now supports both the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B/B+ and Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, so we thought we should come here and let all of you know!
I'm one of the Oracle Linux PMs (and owner of more Raspberry Pi's than I care to admit), so feel free to ask any questions.
Code: Select all
yum groupinstall "Server with GUI"
To be honest, I'm guessing the answer is going to be "You can't" to both of these questions: Oracle Linux is a server-oriented distribution so getting things like wifi and GUIs to work isn't a focus for us. Our Raspberry Pi builds is based off our work porting Oracle Linux to the new Ampere Altra and Cavium ThunderX2 and ThunderX3 Arm platforms, which are both cloud/server class.

However, I'd ask the team and see what they say, just in case.
