Initial OrangePi i96 support landed in Mainline Linux Kernel


Hello Everyone,

I’m glad to say that the initial OrangePi i96 board support landed in Mainline Linux Kernel (5.0-rc1) with new RDA Micro SoC architecture. As of now, the board can enter initramfs shell with single Cortex A5 CPU.

More update will come in upcoming days. Please stay tuned!



Thanks for good news.
Nice work!

Could you please provide some information, how to compile this kernel?
Which options to select in “menuconfig” or how to define RDA Micro architecture ?
Looking forward…
Would like to test new kernel as well maybe port SPI driver to get some type storage for system.
