Libre Computer AML-S905X-CC anyone?

Anyone get IPFire onto the Libre Computer AML-S905X-CC ?

It seems it needs a specific bootloader?

I’ve booted Ubuntu on it, but I want IPFire on one :wink:

Let me know or post here if you were successful and the steps you took to get this running.


That device does not have enough lan to run IPFire out of the box plus it will not perform well under load.

I doubt it will ever be supported here.

thanks, I appreciate the feedback.

However, I knew someone that was able to use this platform to run IPFire. Sadly, we never kept in touch.

So it must be capable of doing so.

It’s the same CPU as the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, which is supported, so it should work when you use an USB LAN adapter for the second ethernet port.

According to the specs it is using this boot loader:

What are the actual error messages you get when installing or booting IPFire?

This is not correct. The Rapberry Pi has an Broadcom SoC and this is based on AMLogic S905X they are complete different platforms.
I have not got compiled U-Boot for AMLogic becuase they don’t provide a useable way to get a signed u-boot. It include closed source binary blob and u have to sign and package this with a tool that run only on x86_64 which cannot run in our build-environment.
