Switching SUNXI-DEV to 5.8.y (h3-h5-h6/megous)


Recommended Posts

If 5.9 will be LTS, is that confirmed officially undeva @Werner?

I'd say let's head for 5.9 in DEV then asap.

 

@5kft Also please note from 5.9-rc2 DVFS is incorporated for H5 chipsets ( like 5.8 had for H6 )

I think there are still some patch issues with the H6...?

 

Hmm yes , eg. build with EXTRAWIFI=no and you will find out some issues there.

 

Speaking of building a kernel with custom .config,

If 'd create config file in " ~/armbian/userpatches/kernel/sunxi-dev " ( as no sunxi64-dev is available ).

Read some here but appears I'm too tired to understand atm, so please hint me to proper path. thx!

I haven't seen anything announced that 5.9 is LTS...where did you see this @Werner ?

 

BTW, I messed around with this a bit (had to patch a few things), and a super quick test build looks promising:

Even less misery since all the one seen as "Reversed patch detected! Skipping patch." means the patch already present in Megous branch, so I will do the clean up by removing them.

So, I will check how to fix the only remining ones ...

 

I went ahead and cleaned up the remaining problems for 5.8.  I don't have an H6 board so I can't test the changes there, but I believe they should work fine (I did a rework of my previous thermal changes for H6 and re-applied on the new 5.8 base).

[scripts/Makefile.modpost:111: Module.symvers] Error 1 compilation.log:make: ***

 

Hi @dolphs,

 

Have you found the ultimate culprit for this compilation error? 

 

I'm getting this one compiling a Realtek (lwfinger) module with latest Armbian stable kernel. 

 

I think this is something related with a kernel compilation option (Module.symvers generation) but I'm still looking into this subject... 

 

Thanks!

This topic is outdated. sunxi-dev has been pushed to kernel version 5.9 while current is now 5.8

If you have issues while compiling this should be reported here: https://github.com/armbian/build/issues
