Linux kernel 3.16.57 LTS for ODROID-C2

Postby stast » Sat Jul 21, 2018 12:58 pm

While mainline kernel is still in progress for ODROID-C2 - it would be nice to update the kernel from discontinued 3.14 to this LTS. Motivation:
- Hardkernel already made it available for Ubuntu 18.04: http://com.odroid.com/sigong/blog/blog_list.php?bid=203
- it will be possible to receive official security updates after upgrade to LTS kernel

Any reason not to update to the mainline kernel?
Code: Select all
pacman -R uboot-odroid-c2
pacman -S uboot-odroid-c2-mainline linux-aarch64
reboot

The reason is that - as far as I can see - mainline kernel is not yet 100% functional for this board.

Also kodi 17 does not work with mainline kernel 4.18. So 3.16 will be great to have
