Title: Allwinner A3x?
Post by: _blue4meridian on July 11, 2014, 06:30:26 PM
@ Allwinner A10 developer(s)...

Is it likely there will be support in TinyCore for the quad core Allwinner A3x series in the very near future?  If support were considered what would be the obstacles to that support?

Best Regards...

Hi _blue4meridian,

Speaking for me, I only have an A10, and I am not sure what I may have in the future. 

Hope this helps

I'm trying to find out if the Allwinner A10 developer(s) intend to go further (eg. Allwinner A3x) or if the Allwinner A10 is the end of the road (based on project roadmap not available project hardware). 

I have seen many release projects where developers are focused on a single solution which is perfectly fine.  However.... it is useful to know if there are future plans for a project in order to either embrace it's limitation or move on to other solutions.

A10 is not the planned end of the road.  The project roadmap depends on Debian's future support of Allwinner boards as well as having the hardware here to develop with.  Right now, it appears Debian supports A10 and A20, A3.x is not available.

There is some support in the mainline linux kernel for A31, maybe that is a starting point?!
