[RFC] Drop S500 boards from the build script

Recommended Posts

 

S500 devices (LeMaker Guitar and RoseApple Pi) are the only devices without initrd/UUID support, both are EOS and have only 3.10.y EOL kernel source.

I propose creating a tag in the build script and deleting their configuration files along with the code that deals with non-UUID root cases to simplify our code base for upcoming LUKS rootfs encryption support.

 

Any thoughts/objections?

As long as we control the kernel so it doesn't get modified and break compilation at the tag.  

We don't control the kernel repository, but it is 3.10 (no upstream patches anymore) and the last commit here was at 13 Oct 2016, so IMO it's pretty safe to say that this source is not maintained.

Yes, we can drop this completely. One small note to the download page that it's still probably possible to build when setting a build script tag to "s500" or whatever will be used.
