Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.14

I can confirm the issues with kms and fkms. I don't know what's wrong with fkms, maybe I'll hook up a serial console tomorrow, the system doesn't boot far enough to start networking so no logs available without serial console. I have a fully upgraded Stretch (and also Gentoo, but no difference in th...

"just don't do that" isn't an option for a security vulnerability.

Re: STICKY: USB boot now working on Pi3

If you're talking about 39-43, they don't matter. They are not exposed and will have the default pull enabled (down, I believe), so won't interfere with the boot process. The bootflow page is pretty explicit that you need to pull the gpio up in order to enable a boot method, and that if you enable ...

Re: STICKY: USB boot now working on Pi3

This GPIO boot control seems incredibly dangerous to me. Since setting it to use the high GPIO is irreversible, and those are not exposed to the user (even on a test pad), it seems as though it's extremely easy to permanently destroy any susceptible pi. It means you can easily make an "SD card of de...

Want to try out the latest Anholt kms driver

... but I don't know where to get started. I'm currently running the official 4.14 beta kernel . I would like to stay with 4.14 and not go back to 4.9. I have a full development environment and am comfortable building kernels and anything else that needs to be built, so I shouldn't need too much han...

Re: FCC certification for Pi Zero W with case

Aha, I didn't understand what you meant by "second assertion"! I said: I believe the only way you can make any changes of any kind is through the declaration of conformity process for assemblers of personal computers (or, obviously, by going through the full approval process). And you found this: Ca...

Re: FCC certification for Pi Zero W with case

Could you please copy+paste the relevant language describing your assertions? The rule for permissive changes is in section (b) (4) of the first link I posted. (4) Class I and Class II permissive changes may only be made by the holder of the grant of certification, except as specified. And they are...

Re: FCC certification for Pi Zero W with case

While the description of permissive changes is correct, unfortunately only the holder of the authorization can make them. So if you already have an approval for your product you can use permissive changes to modify it, but it doesn't get you out of the requirement to get authorization for your produ...
