Description

Is it possible for parabola to provide a newer version of u-boot for mx6_cubox-i variants. With not being able to boot any other kernel with the current u-boot version which is quite old, there is no way to boot systems in parabola with any other kernel other than linux-libre and with the issues which are seemingly rectified by, but not pushed to the linux-libre kernel and others (only into the vanilla kernel) regarding some of the issues that it is having at the moment, but which appear fixed by bill-augers install hook, it would be useful to be able to boot other kernels and thus bootable systems again on this device.

I have tried this using the fairly recent u-boot version in trisquels packages, creating and changing the extlinux.conf file to match the correct folders and boot images in parabola and it works pretty much ok, booting vanilla linux-libre.

If not is there a way for me to build them for myself or can I even just use the trisquel one I have flashed to test?

Thanks
Ry
