Linux for Amlogic¶
Welcome to the website for the growing Linux development community around Amlogic Meson SoCs.
This community is focused around getting Meson SoCs well-supported by mainline Linux and mainline Linux distributions. Some work has been done to get Meson SoCs well-supported by mainline U-Boot as well, to provide Single-Board-Computers an U-Boot alternative to the heavily patched outdated version maintained by Amlogic.
In January 2018 BayLibre wrote a post that summarizes the work done so far to get Meson SoC support into mainline Linux: How We Improved AmLogic Support in Mainline Linux
