OrangePi Zero kernel 5.3

Recommended Posts

Hi there Community! 


Can someone please inform why Buster Minimal images based on Kernel 5.3 are showing as unsupported for OrangePi Zero, although they are available for (nightly) download? 


Can I offer any help testing or something?

I'm not sure about what I'll say, but if you go to the home page of armbian, you'll see that minimal corresponds to XFCE.

The latest kernel that supports video output on the orange pi Zero is 3.14.

So I think you can install a Buster 5.3 image (I havent tried yet because I need this video output to chose on which network it connects).

Without video, so without desktop, it won't be named "minimal" but "server" (Maybe they will release the server version with 5.3 officially someday)
