It looks like HDMI and 3D will go into linux 4.12 they are a bit late for 4.11

firefox-52.0.1-r1 emerge seems stuck on
Code:
Executing /var/tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-52.0.1-r1/work/firefox-52.0.1/ff/dist/bin/xpcshell -g /var/tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-52.0.1-r1/work/firefox-52.0.1/ff/dist/bin/ -a /var/tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-52.0.1-r1/work/firefox-52.0.1/ff/dist/bin/ -f /var/tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-52.0.1-r1/work/firefox-52.0.1/toolkit/mozapps/installer/precompile_cache.js -e precompile_startupcache("resource://gre/");

it seems emerge was executing python and xpcshell processes forever ...
and now python and xpcshell seem to wait for something that never comes.
update
same for firefox-52.0.2
same for firefox-53.0

Sorry I am a bit too busy to help with firefox, my box is a nextcloud server ...

Anyway, it's official support for HDMI and off-tree mali driver have been submitted (& merged) for kernel 4.12, yeahhhh, Odroid C1 - C2 are supported as well so it's time for a aarcch64 explosion :-)

Quote:
code cleanup in the GX family MMC driver (Heiner Kallweit - merged for v4.12)
improved support for the Amlogic P212 reference design (Martin Blumenstingl / xdarklight - merged for v4.12)
Support for the Khadas VIM [Pro] boards (Martin Blumenstingl / xdarklight - merged for v4.12)
DRM for Video Pipeline/HDMI (Neil Armstrong / narmstrong - merged for v4.12)
Mali clocks and devicetree support for GXBB and GXL (Neil Armstrong / narmstrong - merged for v4.12)
Basic MMC calibration for HS modes on GX family (Heiner Kallweit - merged for v4.12)
performance improvements (scatter-gather) for the GX family MMC driver (Heiner Kallweit - merged for v4.12)
Meson8 and Meson8b support the the SAR ADC driver (Martin Blumenstingl / xdarklight - merged for v4.13)


I hope to find some time to test it.

With the upstream kernel support for the C2 nearing completion, I'm interested in a Gentoo image for my stack of C2s, as the "official" available Debian/Ubuntu LTS minimal/desktop images don't make me that happy.

So I searched for the current state of aarch64/arm64 support for Gentoo:

This forum appears where to be where the ARM(64) people hang out.
There is an experimental ARM64 stage3 at https://gentoo.osuosl.org/experimental/arm64/
ARM64 keywording seems to progress slowly in Gentoo as RPi3 64-bit support took way longer than C2(?), but people own more RPi3s
There appear to be several C2 specific Gentoo overlays: https://github.com/psychedup/gentoo-c2 https://github.com/teragonAT/odroidc2-overlay https://github.com/nxmyoz/c2-overlay ... ...
Some people also tried to assemble Gentoo on their own for C2: https://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=138&t=21675
...
...did I miss anything else?

So.... can we deduplicate these efforts somehow?
I dream of a ready-to-write SD card image of Gentoo for the C2 with
upstream kernel
stage 3
DHCP network enabled so one can login headless
auto partition resize to microSD card size script upon first boot

....just like the already available Debian/Ubuntu builds.

How much effort is about needed for that?
How far is official arm64 architecture support in Gentoo?
Infrastructure for nightly snapshot?
ARM64 package CI infrastructure to raise them to their amd64 package stable states?
....

I'm both exited and confused... ;-)

The latest stage3 image Gentoo_8gb_20170305.img I put on https://yadi.sk/d/8WUMwurb38CYTi uses balbes 3.14.29 kernel.
Next one will hopefully use mainline 4.12.0 kernel. Right now with latest 4.12.0 RC, I cannot get ethernet to work yet on my minimx-g.
