Bleeding Edge: dev branch renamed



Recommended Posts

Quite a while ago developers decided to rename the dev branch to edge to reflect its purpose better:


This now finally happened. Our documentation has been adjusted as well. For details feel free to check these commits:


For those who do automated and/or scripted building take note to adjust it accordingly.

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

maybe a stupid little question :(

Is there an "official" way to update kernel-package from dev to edge without recompiling/installing the newest image?


I did manually for one of my NanoPi Neo2:

apt remove linux-u-boot-nanopineo2-dev -y
apt remove linux-dtb-dev-sunxi64 -y
apt remove linux-image-dev-sunxi64 -y
apt remove linux-buster-root-dev-nanopineo2 -y
dpkg -i ./linux-u-boot-edge-nanopineo2_21.05.0-trunk_arm64.deb 
dpkg -i ./linux-buster-root-edge-nanopineo2_21.05.0-trunk_arm64.deb
dpkg -i ./linux-dtb-edge-sunxi64_21.05.0-trunk_arm64.deb 
dpkg -i ./linux-image-edge-sunxi64_21.05.0-trunk_arm64.deb
dpkg -i ./armbian-zsh_21.05.0-trunk_all.deb 
dpkg -i ./armbian-firmware_21.05.0-trunk_all.deb 
dpkg -i ./armbian-config_21.05.0-trunk_all.deb

Manual way: removing current -dev armbian packages and install -edge variants. But stable base doesn't have u-boot packages ... 

@Igor I replaced (by the meaning of u-boot)


linux-u-boot-nanopineo2-edge ( linux-u-boot-edge-nanopineo2_21.05.0-trunk_arm64.deb )

But Iam searching for the -edge replacement for linux-buster-root-dev-nanopineo2, because apt has only for "linux edge":
[EDIT] this was created at 



Did edit the instructions above ;)
