ARM Status

Q/omap4: nothing new this week – for alpha2 we are going to use alpha1 kernel, but after we cut this milestone, work on a 3.5 “almost vanilla” kernel will immediately start.
Q/omap3: 3.5rcX came with regressions in different subsets (video, mmc and usb) – a pending kernel (3.5.2-2) should have fixed all these issues.

Status: Quantal Development Kernel

We have recently rebased the Quantal kernel to the latest v3.5-rc4
upstream kernel and have also uploaded. We hope for this to land in the
Alpha 2 images. This also contains some critical bug fixes for omap3 and
i386 cloud images. It’s currently building in the quantal-proposed
pocket. This will also get uploaded to the q-lts-backport [1] PPA to
help facilitate testing of the 12.10 kernel in 12.04. We welcome any
early adopters to please install, test, and let us know your feedback.
Important upcoming dates:

  • Thurs Jun 28 – Alpha 2 (2 days)
  • Thurs July 26 – Alpha 3 (~4 weeks)
