Fairphone 2 and CyanogenMod / LineageOS

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f05df0eb668>

Maybe you saw or didn’t see that I am trying to get LineageOS 14.1 running on the FP2. I have already patched the Fairphone kernel to support 6.0 (merge from Codeaurora/Qualcomm) and then cherry-picked SELinux patches for the kernel to work under 7.X. The current status is that the system doesn’t boot any further than the init :frowning: . I also don’t really have a clue right now what the worst problem that hinders the boot process is. Log file if you are interested: https://gist.github.com/z3ntu/ee86f06c2332a6f91a4019375200502f

Just checked in on the phone, will do later on a “real” computer
First thing i saw was it is obviously unable to create/mount proc. That leads to the fsck errors referring also to mtab. Then there are selinux initialising problems. Don’t know whether this is because of a missing /proc
Did you try to boot with permissive or selinux disabled, for testing?

Every selinux line has a permissive=1 after and I believe selinux prints the denials even when it’s set to permissive (probably to allow fixing the errors before setting it to enforcing)

OK. Yes, if selinux is set to permissive, it logs the denials anyway, but doesn’t enforce the action, so, except for errors, which are said to be possible, but i didn’t experience any up to now, you should be fine… So, only thing left would be the proc filesystem … (First stage…)

Hi all,

Is there a dedicated thread / forum / IRC for the development work on this? I see some people here at least trying it out already and would be interested in getting in on the fun without having to start from scratch.

Maybe you should ask @z3ntu about that…

Yeah I’m working on it but currently I’m pretty much stuck.

Technical stuff:

Blobs from the 6.0 preview build (currently using blobs from FP2-gms-17.03.1-ota-testkeys)
