Hello,

Thanks for releasing v3.3.2 ! I saw that
http://bugs.alpinelinux.org/issues/5197 was closed with it, and had a try
to boot the new Raspberry Pi 3 with this new 3.3.2 version, but
unfortunately it does not work.

Whereas if I get the official kernel.img from
https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/blob/master/boot/kernel.img and
modify config.txt to use it instead of the kernel provided by Alpine Linux,
it does boot.

Am I missing something ?

Need to check that. I did test boot an early edge build with the same
kernel config on rpi3 earlier.

It seems like I'm not the only one : http://bugs.alpinelinux.org/issues/5296

Yes, seems a late mkinitfs change broke rpi boot sequence. I believe
the 3.3.2 does not boot at all on any rpi.

We'll bump to new kernels, incorporate that fix, and update the rpi
firmwares too. You can expect 3.3.3 soonish (probably tomorrow when
all new kernels are built).

Thank you -Timo- for your update.
After building a new image, the rpi3 boots alpine just fine.
But, some firmware file/s is/are missing e.g. "brcmfmac43430-sdio.bin".
This is the reason, why currently no wifi is available.
Did I miss to install something or is it just not in the image?

dmesg:

the firmware is not upstream yet. we are tracking the wlan support
separately in bug:

Indeed I can confirm that now RPI3 works fine with v3.3.3. Thanks :-)
