What are your experiences with this board? Does it run with an upstream
kernel or still needs many patches?
I have not checked with upstream on which
components are still missing.
However we are fortunate enough to have Russell King spend time on
working it out.
He has a "mcbin" branch on his git tree that might give you an idea on
what the status is.
From my point 4.10-rc6 works reasonably well, however I
found a bug stopping the marvell xor v2 driver from working.
Is it SBSA compliant?
I have no idea. I had a
quick look and uefi appears to be a key
component of this specification.
The board runs u-boot from either spi flash, emmc, sdcard or sata. So it
should be doable, but the current u-boot binary I got does not come with
any of the new efi features of u-boot.
I'm asking, because I can't decide between two ARMv8 systems:
- SoftIron's Overdrive 1000 has rock solid Linux support and comes
completely assembled. Both are a huge bonus, as I'm too old and too busy
to fetch parts and assemble it myself. On the other hand it's quite
limited on ports.
- SolidRuns Community board needs a lot of work to get it running, on
the other hand it has more SATA and Ethernet ports, expandable via PCIe.
