Re: ix4-300d infos & hack ... (bare debian & 3.16 kern) -> D

Any reason for wanting jessie? Wheezy reached EOL (April 26th 2016 (full) / May 2018 (LTS)). But my main reason is that I used some DVB stuff on bananapi, and it required newer packages from something. The only thing what I'd like to achieve now is to save more power. It's good that I was able to b...

Re: ix4-300d infos & hack ... (bare debian & 3.16 kern) -> D

Hello. Thanks for your feedback, the current port is fully integrated to linux mainline... so just compiling it and booting it will do. If you're looking for a arm debian you can take any raspdebian distribution that you can just copy to the linux partition. i won't have time to provide a full all d...

Re: ix4-300d infos & hack ... (bare debian & 3.16 kern) -> D

It seems you're no getting the console on on serial have you looked at the default configuration created if serial console is enable at kernel configuratio. Once done try booting if still not and you're sure kernel serial is compiled in kernel (not as a module) than also check the $console args form...

When you say stock you mean le over stock or debian arm stock? For serial it should just be about kernel boot parameters from uboot. Uuid support is also dependend on uboot version. Or boot a ramdisk with modules to support serial and uuid

I suppose the stock kernel won't support the LXC, and you'll probably be in a better shape with a custom kernel. Isn't 512Mb limiting for LXC container ? For debian arm you can now do bootstrap with multi-arch arch support from debian. (ex: https://blog.night-shade.org.uk/2013/12/building-a-pure-deb...

Hello Have you tried to onboard any volume encryption? Best regards TK Well you can but performance will be very poor... Since cesa security engine is not supported ... Even if you manage to have the current linux cesa driver configured it does not support DMA which mean no real gain vs software en...

To be honnest I'm not using wol since I buy ARM devices to get up 24/7 with low power consumption... I've not look into wol support on the device tree and MV ebu Linux support.

Re: ix4-300d infos & hack ... (bare debian & 3.16 kern) -> D

I think the easier if you go in this direction would be to look at building an USB key with a kernel and initrd image . if you boot the device holding the reset button it search for kernel on USB key. Not that I was only able to boot properly on USB with at least one sata drive connected. Then it's...

Re: ix4-300d infos & hack ... (bare debian & 3.16 kern) -> D

Not sure what you're looking for here. If you're looking into customizing the current linux 3.0.29 then lenovo provide patch to apply to 3.0.29 and you can build your own kernel/modules. If you're planning to boot an entirely debian from USB or HDD1 then you'll need to connect through serial cable t...
