Thread: Tumbleweed for Raspberry Pi versions

  1. #1

    Question Tumbleweed for Raspberry Pi versions

    Tumblweed for RPi is offered in two flavors, one of them called "non-upstream". What is the difference between them? Does non-upstream have more packages? What is considered "upstream" in this case?

    See the following
    https://en.opensuse.org/HCL:Raspberr...mbleweed_image

    The upstream image does not include hardware video decoding, while the downstream does (Thx to our openSUSE Developers (Andreas?))
    I don't know for sure, but generally "upstream" means source before it becomes openSUSE, "downstream" generally means source plus modifications by openSUSE maintainers.

    People should know that the link I posted is only for the original RPi and RPi Zero models.
    If you have a RPi2 or RPi3, you must install images from the following instead

    RPi3
    https://en.opensuse.org/HCL:Raspberry_Pi3

    Thank you for the explanation. I know that generally 'upstream' refers to a version w/o any openSUSE changes. I didn't know what the upstream in this case, as it seems to refers to the whole distribution. From you explanation I think upstream refers to the upstream Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi.
