Slackwarearm-current ChangeLog (2017-02-24)

Fri Feb 24 23:23:24 UTC 2017

The mini root filesystem for -current has been updated:
    Added installation documentation for the Orange Pi (Allwinner H3) Plus v1.1
    and Orange Pi PC v1.2.

    Installation method requires U-Boot on a Micro SD card and eSATA.
    If you'd like to help extend the documentation, please reply to the discussion
    thread on the Slackware ARM LinuxQuestions forum:

    Thanks to the kind folks at for donating the hardware used to
    develop this support.

    Big thanks to Corentin Labbe who has been developing the 'stmmac' Ethernet
    driver and has been helping me get it working on the Orange Pi's.

    Consider this 'alpha' stage support: Read the '# Issues & To Do list:' section
    at the head of the document.

    I'll be developing an installer image that can be dd'd to a USB stick, avoiding
    the necessity to set up a tftp server and so on. This support will be extended
    for all devices (Banana Pi, Tegra, etc.).
