RK3328 Kernel

Recommended Posts

I tried Linux 5.4 on my Rock64 v2.0. Ethernet is not working, which makes the board pretty useless. Unfortunately I don't remember the dmesg error string... is this a known issue? Do you need help investigating it?

Update:   kernel 5.6.0  boots  on my V2.  I just installed latest ayufan ubu focal unstable image and its been ok for a day now. Time will tell if this becomes my main image vs arch/manjaro/armbian.      I'll try armbian again when a stable release is out with this kernel.

How are you getting on @archetech?

On micro SD with ayufan focal 5.6 release 0.10.10 I got 10m crash then 20m crash then 2hr before shutting down to try with emmc (failed).

Posted in IRC and saved paste bin.

Rock64 4gb.

Hey suber.   I just installed LXDE 10 on mine and it's a blast....no big issues really surprised at how it runs cool and smooth.  Uses about half of my 1 GB ram and some swap space with Ffox hexchat lxterm open.    I'll try KDE Plasma soon.  Thing about rock64 boards is there's 3 versions and I had to try a few distros until I came back to ayufan after he finally caught up on his images.  He must know this board well I assume.    Board sat for a month here. I was too frustrated with it.  So try arch manjaro armbian too.

IMO the various devs focus on different uboot / kernel / userspace versions and that introduces issues.  It's an arm thing due to building for chip families vs individual boards/versions.  Try not to give up too fast on it. It's not a great or popular board for obvious reasons  (cheap) but once it works it's  a relief.  I would use an sdcard first then if thats ok, an emmc.
