Mainline kernel 6.9 on NixOS

on NixOS we tried to switch to the latest mainline kernel instead of maintaining a custom kernel fork starfive visionfive2: use mainline kernel by NickCao · Pull Request #958 · NixOS/nixos-hardware · GitHub

So the kernel version is 6.9 including this patch in the hope it will get the board booting [v2] riscv: defconfig: Enable StarFive JH7110 drivers - Patchwork

Unfortunately booting stuck at “Starting kernel …” without any further output or error

Maybe some patches are still missing or we have to configure serial console output in the bootargs?


Best regards
