Re: [opensuse-factory] ARM Version
Hi Andy,

Best send your ARM questions to opensuse-arm mailing list instead.
There's also an #opensuse-arm IRC channel on Freenode, and
https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:ARM is the entry point in the Wiki.

I found a very old version for the Raspberry Pi and ran it on a Pi B+ and
would like to do some testing for it. It uses an ARM 7 processor.

Careful! The original Raspberry Pi had an ARM11 processor (ARMv6).
Packages are shown as armv6l in OBS and as armv6hl in rpm.

ARM7 would be ARMv4 and is not supported in openSUSE - a frequent mixup.

There are currently two Tumbleweed repositories, one with the openSUSE
kernel in :upstream and one with the older downstream Raspberry Pi
Foundation kernel. I have started looking into cleaning this up further.

The new Pi, just out recently has a quad core and I expect mine this week.

The Raspberry Pi 2 is ARMv7-A. OBS armv7l, rpm armv7hl.

There is no complete upstream kernel support for the bcm2836 yet, not
even in Kernel:linux-next, so you only have the downstream Contrib
kernel for now.

Suse ran fine on the old Pi.

Always great to hear.

Cheers,
Andreas
