Re: Clear Linux iot kernel LTS2018


Yang, Ailin
 

This is obvious! No.

pk414-sos/iot-lts20180-sos, which contains Clear Linux SOS kernel, acrn-hypervisor, acrn-dm and related Guest OS launch scripts. It is targeting for Clear Linux as the SOS on ACRN hypervisor. This bundle needs to install with "swupd " manually if people want to enable ACRN.
pk414-standard/iot-lts2018, which is targeting for Native Clear Linux or Linux as the Guest. It Is installed with bare metal system installation.

From the procedure to install ACRN point of view, Miguel said there is no changes. Just need to be updating kernel name with iot-lts2018-sos replacing pk414-sos.
And standard kernel with iot-lts2018 replacing pk414-standard.

I think this change is for upgrading current 4.14 kernel to 4.19 named kernel LTS2018 purpose only.

Again, that would be nice if acrn.efi can be deployed into EFI partition and acrn boot entry be added into EFI firmware boot menu by default after install "service-os" bundle with this upgrade opportunity.


Thanks

Hi Miguel,

The service-os bundle will also install acrn-hypervisor package, but it seems the kernel-iot-lts2018 bundle only does part of what the service-os bundle is doing currently. Will the kernel-iot-lts2018 bundle brings in the acrn-hypervisor package in future releases to reuse the same setup procedure?

Regards,
Tonny

Hi Miguel,

this change means we don't need to install a "service_os" bundle and copy acrn.efi to EFI partition manually to boot ACRN hypervisor after " iot-lts2018 " package installed with bare metal system. right?
if so, how to boot up system to "standard" and "sos"? still need to setup manually to boot up one of them?
Any plan, please let me know. We may need to update documentation per your change.
the procedure to install ACRN is the same, we (ACRN team & CLR team) need to improve it to setup easily.

Only changes the kernel, instead of choose pk414-sos you can choose iot-lts2018-sos, and instead of pk414-standard as Guest you can choose
iot-lts2018 (note: no extra/post name (-standard) in it).

And in the next weeks pk414 will be removed (I'll send an email when we plan to remove it).

iot-lts2018-sos is shipped with service-os bundle.
iot-lts2018 (standard) is shipped with kernel-iot-lts2018 bundle.



Thanks
Ailin

Hi,

Since 25540 Clear Linux* OS has added a new kernel called

IOT LTS2018

This kernel is an "enterprise style" kernel with a significant list of back-ported features.

This package has a main package "standard" and a sub-package "sos".

The "standard" kernel (the main package) is meant for running on bare metal systems as well as running as a "normal" guest in various hypervisors. It is available in the kernel-iot-lts2018 bundle.

The "sos" kernel is specifically meant to run as DOM0 in an ACRN hypervisor setup. It is available in the service-os bundle.

Currently service-os bundle keep pk414 but will be removed when
iot-lts2018 be adopted.
