Raspberry Pi 4 bcm2711 (aarch64)
 
I donít know whether many people want or not, but I was contacted about installing slarm64 on this device.

After reading the data on the operation of this device, I realized that this device can be added to the image assembly (images_build_kit) system for devices.
While this is not in the main branch, I would like to test for transfer to the general branch, but I do not have this device. so please test the system boot.

I decided to use u-boot as a kernel loading layer, let's see what happens.

compiled the kernel 5.6.10

slarm64-current-aarch64-base-rootfs-20200513-5.6.10-raspberry_pi_4-build-20200517.img.xz.md5

if the download fails, try changing the kernel=u-boot.bin parameter to kernel=Image in /boot/config.txt

I also want to mention akschu which already described the assembly process.

I have installed slarm64 on my pi4. It works really well. I used the 32 bit installer to put the software on it. You have to edit your config.txt.
Code:

kernel=kernel8.img
arm_64bit=1

When you reboot you will find that all did not install properly. Simply re-install again. I know it is a bit of a kludge to install twice but I wanted to see if it worked ok rather than develop a slick installer.

The gcc compiler does not build a bootable kernel. Building the arm version of gcc (version 9.2.1) and replacing the slarm64 version now works.

I have no other issues (yet).

Kind regards,

Dunc.

Thanks Dunc,

I want to add a build of a clean aarch64 system, and then a simple installation on sdcard or hdd.

My biggest concern about switching to slarm64 on my pi 4 is the lack of arm64 software, along with the headaches of compiling stuff that I already know works on Slackware ARM.

I use mate (msb) on my laptop. I did my daily git pull of all the repos I follow and found:
https://github.com/mateslackbuilds/m...04b20b0b573804

Is this still in the very early testing phase? Or do you have a working mate environment in slarm64?

mralk3 05-18-2020 12:18 PM

Forgive me for the noise. I just found http://dl.fail.pp.ua/slackware/packages/aarch64/mate/

I have been using this system every day (on all my armv8 devices) for more than a year as a desktop on rockpro64+ssd. I had no problems with compilation. And yes, I find it stable. the package base is the same as in the original Slackware64 with some exceptions. To build slarm64 i use lxc on rock pi 4

Thanks to JŠnos testing, the system boots normally without using u-boot.
Of course I would like to use u-boot, but again there is no way to test.

please check the work:

if it does not load, try to remove everything from the **config.txt** leave only
enable_uart=1
kernel=u-boot.bin


or change only kernel=u-boot.bin to kernel=Image

kernel 5.6.14

patches were applied for u-boot if it will not boot try changing the kernel=u-boot.bin parameter to kernel=Image in /boot/config.txt

Thanks to sndwvs, support for Raspberry 3 and 4 will me merged to images_build_kit soon, so anyone can build a Slarm64 installer for themselves, and can install a completely 64-bit ARM-based Slackware derivative on their 64-bit capable Raspberry Pis.

sndwvs 05-22-2020 07:20 AM

Fixed boot using u-boot, thanks to testing JŠnos
