Re: Release: Multiple 64Bit OS 3bplus desktop&lite

I don't mind raspbian sticking to armhf. I do mind that the use of other distros (armhf and arm64) is actively discouraged by members of the Pi team and repeated by others on this forum. As somebody who has spent a little bit of time trying to help people use other distros it is extremely annoying. ...

There is little point since you can easily adapt the official pi 2 image - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi#Booting_the_official_Pi_2_image_on_the_Pi_3B.2F3B.2B- I uploaded 32 bit and 64 bit installers for xubuntu 18.04 - https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=209763 .

Re: Looking for a Lubuntu 18.04 LTS image for the new RPi3B+

Apart from Gentoo it seems to be experts only at the moment for Aarch64. I'm not sure where this idea that you have to be an expert to use aarch64 has come from. It's been possible to do this in debian, Ubuntu, open suse etc for ages. For example, I made a 64 bit lubuntu ISO back in august of last ...

What device tree blob does the pi 2 v 1.2 use? Looking at https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/tr ... s/broadcom there doesn't seem to be a device tree for the pi 2? Yet it is arm64 capable too?

If you are using a pi 2/3 then you could just use pure debian. It might be easier than recompiling gtk/mesa/etc

Without detailed instructions is too advanced for me, unfortunately.
Kvm is pretty advanced stuff. Why exactly do you need it? This might seem harsh, but I can't help but think at the end of this, you are going to post "how do I use kvm?".

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...

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...
