contemplating conversion of an r-pi3b based system to a rock64
What sort of problems due to internal architecture changes would I
encounter? Currently using an rt-prempt version of 4.4.4 kernel labeled
kernel7 since no later armhf/v7 kernel rt build has even usable
keyboard/mouse support, with or without the extra usb2 hub for the
dongles. This extra hub will be used in any event since the box its
mounted in will eventually be buttoned up, severely restricting the
range of the wireless dongles.
This one is usable if rebooted repeatedly until it mostly works. But
you've got to be chewing kentucky's finest twist and holding your mouth
just so, otherwise it throws more keyboard/mouse events in the trash
than it responds properly to. The potential for fixing this is the
driver for switching to a rock64.
Suggestions as to where to src a suitable image for the rock64, hopefully
one compatible with the current rpspi.ko driver (available as part of
any recent linuxcnc install from buildbot.linuxcnc.org for armhf's,
since except for keyboard/mouse, video(hdmi,mali drivers a huge plus)
and LAN net stuffs, all other i/o is thru the gpio for this application,
will be investigated.
