5.x Mainline Kernel for VIM1

I built a linux mainline kernel(5.3.0-rc1) for VIM1, I don’t know if vim 2 can use this kernel, maybe you can have a try, it works well in ArchLinuxARM,
It support mali gpu (LIMA, PANFROST) and wifi(with linux firmware).

root only image download link
if you need to run as a normal user
chmod 755 / && chmod 755 /lib && chmod 755 /bin


I only use XDM to successfully open the Desktop,

Desktop environment not recommended:
gnome(very slow)
plasma(smoother than gnome, but it’s also slow)

Download kernel or ArchLinuxARM_Server_5.2.1_Image

Hello, is there any way to turn on the temperature sensor?

Should I get driver from GitHub, or there’s something instead of it in the mainline kernel?
I tried CONFIG_HID_SENSOR_TEMP=y and m, but it doesn’t seem to work.

Hello @_no_proxy

You may check this about the driver status for the mainline kernel: http://linux-meson.com/doku.php#wip

It seems that the Thermal Sensor is already supported for both VIM1 and VIM2.

Thank you, I’ll check that.

Yes it is working on Manjaro built.
