If they were distributed as an IMG file with 2 partitions then it would be so much more simpler.

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

I am writing from the 32-bit Raspbian Os of my new Pi3 B+, but as you know this has 64-bit chips inside. What's the easiest way to upgrade to any ARM64 distro - preferably Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora? I did hear that OpenSUSE might be better for ARM64/KVM? If the kernel has KVM/hardware virtualization e...

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...

Re: Confused by mmc modules

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...

Re: Debian on Pi 3B & 3B+

They are Cd/DVD ISO debian-installer images so you don't set them up like a standard pi sd card image. Have a look at the mini ISO images I made for raspbian - https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=195162 , or you could boot the iso using uboot/grub (like I showed in the Ubuntu thread)....

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...

Thanks PhilE that's cleared it up a bit for me.

Output of your command https://pastebin.com/DMXq0ckP

Are there lots of other modules where upstream and downstream differ? (Sorry I've a lot to learn about the pi kernels!)

Confused by mmc modules

Using the latest Ubuntu raspi2 kernel I'm getting an error in my dmseg. I'm guessing it is to do with the mmc modules.

You said it would take between one and two months. It took about a week to get a working Ubuntu. So that's how long it takes. That is precisely not what I said.

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

Unless you have insider information, it is not going to be a week. Probably somewhere between one and two months for Ubuntu-mate. For Ubuntu-server it is even longer. 18.04 is in feature freeze I think, so the bootloader files probably won't be updated in time for release. Plus there will probably ...

Re: Ubuntu image for the Raspberry Pi 3 B not booting via USB

I'm not sure why this got moved, but I answered it where you originally posted it - viewtopic.php?f=63&t=208538&start=75

I would use /dev/sda when first trying to get it to boot, but it is probably a good idea to switch to uuid once you have it booting.

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

I've seen a few people try USB booting in Ubuntu-mate and you are not the first to fail at this. For USB booting you need to update the bootloader and edit cmdline.txt (like you've done). In addition you need to edit /etc/fstab. I haven't done this myself, but in theory that should be enough to get ...

In reply to a comment above, that booting a Pi is real hard, I'd have to say that booting a Pi with the official OS is really easy. Image SD card, boot. It really is that simple. Booting the Pi with third party OS is almost always just as easy, except when a new model comes out and the third partie...
