Acer Chromebook CB5-311 mainline

Postby reey » Mon Oct 23, 2017 4:14 pm

Hello,

I edited the script of https://www.tbi.univie.ac.at/~ronny/acer-cb5-311.html to install the mainline kernel (
archlinux-working.zip
(7.16 KiB) Downloaded 31 times
) .
I've attached it bellow.
My problem is now, that I'm not able to use the integrated wifi. It is not detected..
Am I missing something here?
I would be glad for any help.

Code: Select all
[    5.878347] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
[    5.878361] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized

Hello, what kernel version?
Can you help me boot mainline from SD or USB.
I'm able to boot arch (and other distros) from SD and USB but with the 3.10 kernal.

Sorry can't help with your wi-fi issue. The chipset requires some firmware blob ...
I know that there is other poeple who (had) run mainline.

The script installs the latest version of linux-armv7 so at the moment this should be 4.14.
As far as I know booting from SD should be no problem..
Have you been trying this script?

I've forked RaumZeit's repo and created a mainline branch for installing mainline.
https://github.com/reey/LinuxOnAcerCB5-311/

I've also tested sd card installation, which is working fine.
Booting with crtl + u works.
The script installs the newest mainline kernel, so at the moment it is 4.14.12

Hey, I was following the wonderful progress made in the other thread by people like you.

I seem to be stuck at a blank screen on boot. I assume that this means that the new kernel partition is detected and used, but I am unable to get further than that, or detect whether the rootfs has been used.

I saw this same issue referenced in the other thread, but I could not find a solution for it other than it disappeared in a new kernel version.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Hey,

have you used the script from my github mainline branch?
Do you know which kernel version was installed?
4.14.12 was running fine, maybe there is a problem with 4.15..
I also experienced these problems when I tested a rc kernel..

I will try to rerun the script an install the newest kernel version later today.

edit: I'm now running Kernel 4.15.3 and I'm not getting any black screen
Also my wifi problem no longer occurs, but I don't know what fixed this..
