Hi.

Debian runs on my orangepi very smoothly. As I can see, there is standard debian repo used. So I have a question - will debian standard kernel work on OrangePi? For example: https://packages.debian.org/stretch/linux-image-4.1.0-2-armmp - will it work?

Looking into debian faq: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianKernel/ARMMP Allwinner is supported?

You mean on OrangePi plus or Orange PC? Not in a dream (yet). For boards with A20 it might work, but upgrade won't be simple / straitforward  ... and don't expect too much.  It's a general usage kernel for ARM based on www.kernel.org - from main line source.

I mean OrangePi. So, is there any newer kernel for Debian? I upgraded whole system to Sid and I'm happy with newest software.

But kernel is very old and it annoys me so much. Any thoughts?

Manufacturer usually prepare one kernel which barely works and in many cases they don't cooperate with community. (Then they move to new board). Code hasn't been up-streamed, probably nobody is working any more on this, so new kernel can't exists. That's all we got.

But.

There is a community effort to bring mainline Linux to those devices. A10/20 is working fine, but they are old chips. H3 just arrived and I haven't see any progress since then.

There is also no sign of it in u-boot.
