good new new for linux users
Linux Kernel 5.7 : What’s New?
Features And Device Support. … Better HDR/OLED Display Support. …
Linux I/O Interface IO_uring. … New exFAT Filesystem Driver. …
F2FS And XFS Filesystem Update. …
Zoned Block Device Support In Btrfs. …
Apple USB Fast Charge Support For iOS devices. …
New Sound Hardware Support Update.
linux mainline 5.7 series already included it
PS: after some tests we can update debian / ubuntu / openwrt - with new kernel
That is quick.
I will try to build it tonight
Please check the name from rc7 to 1

will be updated soon to 5.7
I see 20 less patches
Also I think you can merged Edge & Vim Configs and maintain only 1 config file like I do. Maybe it will help ?
June 1, 2020, 12:13pm
yes same it will soon in fenix !
PS: i have one config and one kernel already for amlogic and rockchip in krescue (
Perfect I will use this and build it
June 1, 2020, 12:16pm
this one very light config (optimized for minimal size ) all in modules if possible
special for krescue - maybe its not good for common usage
June 1, 2020, 12:18pm
my recommendation wait some days - we still try fix missed places and fix bugs
but its already usable !
Ok no worries.
Will wait for it

@hyphop, looking forward to this, what are the by the way new features
I tried nvme on VIM3/PRO and just noted that when writing to nvme frequently noise affects the readability of the screen. When reading from nvme such noise is not there. What could it be? Thanks
@hyphop what about other PCIE devices?
Is it finally possible to connect dvb-t pcie or something else (gfx card) ?
Is there support for NPU?
no npu is supported only on 4.9
June 5, 2020, 2:31pm
why not ? i have test wifi pcie card and nvme ssd disk only and it same pci
I mean if amlogic npu galcor modules was porter over the 5.7 kernel ?
Can I build 5.7 now? I hope the patches will work fine now ?
June 6, 2020, 10:20am
yes u can try
fenix used already linux mainline 5.7
or there (one defconfig for both soc amlogic + rockchip )
Building it using the combined defconfig
Here is the build process.
Building on Khadas Vim3. Lets see how long it takes.
UPDATE: Your defconfig is incomplete even for only aml and rk config, Panfrost and lima is missing. Normally I use defconfig and do menuconfig to add the missing but in your I have to define everything all over again so instead I will just use my own.
Thanks. It built fine though.
