Currently, aarch64 version of ArchLinuxARM for Raspberry Pi 3B/3B+ is using official linux kernel build, but not the raspberry project own kernel version. As a result, some features do not work correctly (i.e. Raspberry Touch display). I found a fresh build of Raspberry official kernel for aarch64 here: https://github.com/sakaki-/bcmrpi3-kernel and packaged it for arch usage.

To install, simply perform

$ yaourt -S linux-aarch64-raspberrypi-bin raspberrypi-overlays

and agree with all replacements. Optionally you may want to install raspberrypi-bootloader-x as well. Reboot and enjoy full featured Raspberry Pi with aarch64 Arch Linux system!

Please note, there are no corresponding kernel headers package yet. linux-raspberrypi-headers supposed to work, but they are not available for aarch64. I may add headers package later if I will need it myself.

@Terence, Issue you are mentioning was closed with status "won't fix", so don't expect it wo be working with 64-bit kernels.

Does this version fixes https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/2110 ?

@ava1ar Well, with serial console I have full output from the power up moment, that is not possible with ssh cause it must have running operating system. Thanks to that I can investigate why my system does not boot up without monitor attached. It is a bit strange that serial console has disappear after kernel update.

@ppryga, Not sure about the serial console - I don't use it. Why not to simply use ssh for access?

Hi there! I'm sorry if the question is not directed to right person. I've just updated my Arch on RSPI3B+ with you package. Because I use my device as headless I need to have serial console working. And it was before installation of the package. Are there any special steps to be done to make it working again?

Thanks in advance for your support!

for people like me (stupid and lazy): what @Raansu means with "get everything ready for makepkg": install base-devel and replace the matching part in makepkg.conf with the aarch64 options: https://pastebin.com/raw/06vjKpyW

@marakasmalan

Thanks for your report. I am using it with my RPi3b for Home Assistant setup in headless mode (well, almost headless - I have Raspberry display connected, which displays HomeAssistant UI) and generally my experience is similar to yours. I tried using GUI with this kernel - it generally works, but less stable, than with official 32-bit kernel. Also, only 1Gb of RAM is a limitation for usage as desktop.

ava1ar, thank for this package and for your work in this regard.

I can confirm it worked fine for me. Some observations: - Installed the stock aarch64 from archlinuxarm.org for the rpi3, then installed the AUR package as on this page and raspberrypi-overlays and raspberrypi-bootloader-x. This I managed without any problems. - I did not test any graphical applications or DE. - the cli temperatur command /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp does not work, or rather does not exist. Temperature can be measured with /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp . - wifi worked (only used netctl), I did not test bluetooth. - As an experiment I installed the aur package xmrig-donateless, but this performed at 62% of the speed of the same package installed on the standard 32bit rpi2 arch installation.

Bottom line, I had no problems working in terminal only, everything seemed to work. Let me know if you need anything specific to be tested.

ava1ar, Thank you for the fixes. Everything looks good on my end.

Raansu, thanks for your feedback. I adjusted the PKGBUILD to no create symlink and use full kernel version in both .install and .preset. Works fine for me. Can you please check and report it is working for your as expected?
