2020-01-24linux-libre-aarch64: Enable using a 32bit userspaceDenis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
This is done by enabling CONFIG_COMPAT. Though when importing the configuration on Linux v5.4.8 and enabling this configuration with: make ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu- xconfig it updated other parts of the the .config as well. Signed-off-by: Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli <>
2020-01-24linux-libre-aarch64: use Image to fix "Bad Linux ARM64 Image magic!"Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
Without that patch, /boot/vmlinuz-linux-libre-aarch64 ends up being an Image.gz, however some u-boot configuration and/or versions seem to not like that and fail with the following message: Bad Linux ARM64 Image magic! Making sure that vmlinuz-linux-libre-aarch64 is an Image results in the board booting. However it then fails with: Failed to execute /init (error -8) This might be because the board I used for testing doesn't support runing 32bit binaries and/or because we need to enable more configuration in the kernel to enable that.

2020-01-21linux-libre-aarch64: various fixes and reduce the diff with linux-libreDenis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
The chromebook package has also been disabled due to the following error: | ==> Starting package_linux-libre-aarch64-chromebook()... | FATAL ERROR: Couldn't open "arch/arm/boot/zImage": No such file or directory | mkimage: Can't read kernel.itb.tmp: Invalid argument | ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_linux-libre-aarch64-chromebook(). | Aborting... It could be fixed later on if there is some interest. Signed-off-by: Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli <>

2020-01-15linux-libre-aarch64: use gcc-initial for nowDenis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
- Compiling a toolchain takes time. - We also need to make sure to get the toolchain right, usually it requires 3 steps (gcc-initial, gcc-intermediate, gcc-final) and here we're trying to do it in two to save compilation time. - The 2 step toolchain worked for newlib but we don't know PKGBUILD examples that do that for glibc based toolchains. - We don't need a libc to build Linux. Because of all that, we depends on the aarch64 gcc-initial toolchain for building it now. Once we have pushed aarch64 gcc, we will need to add it again as a dependency for building this pacakge, in order to be able to build this package and aarch64 userspace applications as well with the same compiler.
