you need to make an sdcard boot using the other script on mara's site then mount mmcblk1p1 and format as ext4 and then dd or similar the image to that partition then refresh just the boot loader, parameter, kernel and boot.img to the correct hex offsets and it should boot from emac.
i fiddled around with this for days but this build is broken and overtime i try to update the installed slackware it just breaks the system so i wouldn't bother with this until either mara makes some update to fix that along with the mts issue too or just install and don't run slackpkg update-all
I'm hoping someone smarter then myself can use this kernel build with a debian/ubuntu rootfs

Hi mara ,
Does the  "slack-current-xfce_07Apr16-4.6.0-rc1-firefly-build-20160417.img " get the mali ...

Hi mara,

I would be very interested what "FPS-scores" es2gears and glmark2 (opengl test applications for X11) give on your slackware-release?

Actually I've got very slow framerates (like 5 fps with kodi fullscreen/1080p ) with mainline kernel including mali and armsoc on ubuntu 16.04...

Cheers -- mac_l1

rename file /etc/X11/xorg.conf as xorg.conf.old
and restart X server: init 3 ; init 4
