Hello Igor, when you say "a modern kernel", you mean a kernel near the version of the mainline one ?

Is there a corresponding git repo to see the progress of it ?

We usually work with/have two kernels. Stock legacy, currently mostly 4.4.y.  and mainline, usually latest LTS or stable, 4.14.y/4.18.y at the time. Legacy is labeled "default", while modern "next" ... or "dev" when attached to the master kernel branch.


Repositories per kernel family are defined here: https://github.com/armbian/build/tree/master/config/sources ... for this particular board family we use the repository from Ayufan which seems to be in the best shape. Another alternative would be kernel.org + a bunch of patches.

Ok thanks.

For now I am on Arch Arm with the mainline kernel. But I am not very satisfied with its stability. My system hangs randomly. I suspect a bad support of the USB stuff. I am thinking of migrating to Armbian, I really liked it on my old Cubieboard2. My rootfs is on a partition of a self powered external disk connected to the USB 3.0 port. I also have another external disk in a 2.0 port (powered by the host) that is mounted when executing cron backup tasks. Do you think Armbian with aayfan kernel is a more stable ?

What is the probability for the mainline kernel to have a good support for this board ?

(Sorry to be a little out of the subject of this thread)
