Ubuntu 24.04 Beta for the Turing RK1

Hello everyone! I have some Ubuntu 24.04 Beta images for the RK1 hot off the press! During this beta phase, users can test the operating system and provide valuable feedback to help improve its stability and performance. The official release of Ubuntu 24.04 LTS is expected on April 25, 2024. A full and detailed list of changes will be available with the official release of Ubuntu 24.04 LTS. However, users can review the work in progress draft of the final release notes here: https://github.com/Joshua-Riek/ubuntu-rockchip/discussions/683 Download the Ubuntu 24.04 LTS Beta image from the link below: https://joshua-riek.github.io/ubuntu-rockchip-download/boards/turing-rk1.html

@Spooky I assume the source is not quite ready for prime time. I tried to build it, but it failed due to an error. I fell back to the 22.04.3 source, which does build cleanly. I'm using a standalone Ubuntu 22.04 build environment on an old dual-socket E5-2690.

I'm trying to migrate most of the build system to use the
ubuntu-image
tool provided by Canonical, so the build process is a little broken at the moment as it's not fully migrated yet. I hope to get things cleaned up and ready by the weekend. After 24.04 is wrapped up, i'm going to circle back to 22.04 so it will follow the same build process. Users will be able to customize their own image by modifying a YAML file. I quite like this feature as it's very user friendly and easy to maintain. YAML specification: https://github.com/canonical/ubuntu-image/blob/main/internal/imagedefinition/README.rst

Thanks for the info. I'm looking to integrate the AQtion (atlantic) driver to see whether I can get an AQC107-based, 10GbE M.2 (B+M key) card working. It's Gen3x2, so may require device tree mods.

Hmm I see that CONFIG_AQTION is not enabled in the 6.1 kernel config, let me look up the driver and see if i can go ahead and enable it for you
This should be the right driver: https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/networking/device_drivers/ethernet/aquantia/atlantic.html I enabled the driver in the 6.1 kernel config and it will be included when i start the next kernel build on Launchpad. https://github.com/Joshua-Riek/linux-rockchip/commit/7067c8361be116187b49788bdd36db354144a0bf

That's it. Thanks!
@Spooky wanted to pass along that the two versions of the IOCrest IQC107-based 10GbE M.2 cards I have are now recognized by the updated beta's kernel. The Innodisk version is not recognized, but, based upon u-boot's
pci 2 long
output, it identifies itself somewhat differently than the IOCrest cards. I'll have a look at the Innodisk driver source to see what's up.

Glad to hear!
