Just need to see the status of S912 SoC in the
mainline kernel (at least
in the openSUSE kernel).
At FOSDEM 2017 I showed openSUSE Tumbleweed running on S912, but with a
mainline based kernel due to the TV box vendor's U-Boot not supporting
UEFI or raw initrds or kernel Images with default text offset.
You can probably fix the initrd problem by tweaking the Vim2's U-Boot
config, but you'd need to convert the openSUSE kernel Image to a uImage
and boot as described on linux-meson.com
So SUSE kernel should theoretically work, good news!
Or contribute to mainline U-Boot on S912 (S905 is in
mainline, may need
smaller patches for e.g. pinctrl). Then our standard boot flows would
apply and we can attempt to build an official openSUSE image.[*]
Why not, I may try. Not sure if a can do it, but trying doesn't hurt :-)
I also ordered I VIM1 board (S905x), so mainline U-Boot should work on
it, and so openSUSE too, no? I will try also.
I hope to have my boards just before my next trip to Nuremberg!
[*] My meson-tools are not yet prepared for S912 either.
