I’m tracking the release notes here: rpi-eeprom/release-notes.md at master · raspberrypi/rpi-eeprom · GitHub
I see that a new critical update has been pushed to enable USB boot on the critical branch.
I’m on the stable Manjaro branch, and according to
pacman -Syu, everything is up to date.
However, when I run
rpi-eeprom-update, I get the following:
~]$ sudo rpi-eeprom-update
Dedicated VL805 EEPROM detected
CURRENT: Thu Apr 16 05:11:26 PM UTC 2020 (1587057086)
LATEST: Thu Apr 16 05:11:26 PM UTC 2020 (1587057086)
FW DIR: /lib/firmware/raspberrypi/bootloader/critical
I’m not in any rush, but I realize I perhaps don’t understand how the firmware updates filter to Manjaro.
It is my understanding that the “FW DIR” is on Manjaro’s servers, and requires updating, testing, and validation to be updated when a new firmware is released.
bootloader tools may also need to be updated.
Is that correct?
