Upgrading your Armbian to v19.11.y

 

This upgrade is changing kernel branch names and first upgrade is not done via regular apt-upgrade process, but you have to login as root or get super user privileges with sudo su. Than do the following:

apt update
apt upgrade
armbian-config

-> system -> Other -> select either legacy or current with v19.11.3

Note: upgrade will replace your boot script. In case you made changes, you can find a backup in /usr/share/armbian

Main build system changes

Due to changes in branch names and removal of all legacy kernels < 4 your predefined automatic scripts might need updating. Temporally quick fix is to add

LIB_TAG="v19.08"

to your build config file which by default is:

userpatches/config-default.conf

Then run your script as you did before.

 

Thanks to all who are contributing their time to Armbian in various forms and especially developers who contributed to this release. Also thanks to the greater kernel developers community which are playing great role in this.


In case you want to participate, you are more then welcome. Step up and start making changes! In case you run into the troubles or find a bug, forum is the place for talking about while fixes you are welcome to prepare and send here.


Note: some images will be missing today and tomorrow from the download section. Missing one are being created and uploaded but this takes time ... Most of the images were manually tested for booting, upgrades as stated above, but we can't afford to make stability, functional or just boot auto tests on industrial scale. Not with our ultra tiny resources. Perhaps in the future if "you" will support that.

 

Enjoy! :)
