Last weekend already the 4.8 kernel landed in Factory. Since then we
have a usable JeOS-raspberrypi2 image in openSUSE:Factory:ARM.
These images have not been published yet, so you will need to download
them from OBS (build.opensuse.org
) rather than download.opensuse.org
For that reason the Wiki couldn't be updated with new instructions yet.
* The GRUB menu is only shown on HDMI, not on serial. Workaround: Attach
a monitor for the first boot, then edit /etc/default/grub replacing
GRUB_TERMINAL="gfxterm" with GRUB_TERMINAL="console" and run
`update-bootloader` (or `grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg`).
* Downstream kernels booted through GRUB might get a random MAC address.
Workaround: edit GRUB menu entry or create a boot.scr script.
The old images in devel:ARM:Factory:Contrib:RaspberryPi2 and :Staging
will stay around for now, but you are encouraged to use the official
image for new installations and, if needed, install only kernel-rpi2 and
dtb-bcm2709 packages from the Contrib projects. Therefore please report
success or problems with the new raspberrypi2 image. Thanks.
Have a lot of fun,
P.S. The 4.8 arm64 kernel has been tested to work on the Raspberry Pi 3
but U-Boot is looking for the .dtb file in the wrong place, breaking
automatic boot. Therefore no official image yet. Workaround: symlink or
`load mmc 0:2 $fdt_addr_r boot/dtb/broadcom/$fdtfile; boot`
