OESF Portables Forum _ Zaurus - Arch Linux ARM support _ Linux Kernel 5.0

Posted by: greguu Apr 17 2019, 09:53 PM

I have not updated the rootfs for ALARMZ (ArchLinuxARM Zaurus) for a while. I hope there are still some of you out there using it. It would be really good to know if you are. If you like to try a newer Linux Kernel on your Zaurus, please check out this post on the Voidz section in the forum. If there is enough interest, I will release a newer ALARMZ rootfs including the 5.0 kernel.

Note: If you like to test and run the kernel, you will need to download, install it and update your boot.cfg manually.

Thanks for this release. It is heartwarming to see the Zaurus still running the latest version of the Linux kernel. And yes, it would be nice to find out how many users are using Voidz and/or Alarmz.
