I is indeed a cheap cortex A10 Alwinner tablet, with 1Gb ram. I started from image https://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/27/Spins/armhfp/images/Fedora-Xfce-armhfp-27-1.6-sda.raw.xz and used the bootloader for A10-OLinuXino-Lime in the arm-imamge-installer, later on i replaced it with a bootloader compiled for the sun4i-a10-inet1 target, compiled from the uboot repo. I update by sudo dnf update and everything still works except for the newer kernel. Also its a inet 10F rev 03 model chipset. > > Touch screen is no real surprise if it's an AllWinner based tablet, > they change them constantly based on cost and availability. > the touchscreen is DPT 300-N3765A-C00, from the dpt group, i will see later if i can get the driver information from the android fex file, but the fex files have multiple touchscreens defined, so i will have to verify which one later. > > If one 4.13 works it's not surprising others do, what about 4.14.x > > i will try the 4.14 kernel from koji as well. > Can you some how grab the output up until it goes blank, I suspect > that last output might give us some idea. > the latest output is: starting kernel.. then a black screen with the pinguin only (from uboot?), then that also disappears, it seems the back-light is still on though, until i reset the tablet, could it be that the load address of the kernel is wrong (kernel size got bigger?). > What about a Fedora 4.16.2 (built yesterday) kernel?
