Apertis is a Debian derivative distribution geared towards the creation of product-specific images for ARM (both the 32bit ARMv7 and 64-bit ARMv8 versions using the hardfloat ABI) and Intel x86-64 (64-bit) systems.
Apertis v2022.2 is the third stable release of the Apertis v2022 stable release flow. Apertis is committed to maintaining the v2022 release stream up to the end of 2023.
This Apertis release is built on top of Debian Bullseye with several customisations and the Linux kernel 5.15.x LTS series.
Test results for the v2022.2 release are available in the following test reports:
- 2020 Q4: v2022dev0

- 2021 Q2: v2022dev2
- 2021 Q3: v2022dev3
- 2021 Q4: v2022pre
- 2022 Q1: v2022.0
- 2022 Q2: v2022.1

|Intel 64-bit||fixedfunction||hmi||base SDK||SDK|
|ARM 32-bit (U-Boot)||fixedfunction||hmi|
|ARM 64-bit (U-Boot)||fixedfunction|
|ARM 64-bit (Raspberry Pi)||fixedfunction||hmi|
hmi images are tested on the
reference hardware (MinnowBoard Turbot Dual-Core),
but they can run on any UEFI-based x86-64 system. The
sdk image is
tested under VirtualBox.
Apertis v2022.2 repositories
deb https://repositories.apertis.org/apertis/ v2022 target development sdk
This is a point release in the stable cycle, only security fixes and small changes are appropriate for this release stream.
This release includes the security updates from Debian Bullseye and the latest LTS Linux kernel on the 5.15.x series.
In this release the support for the new UP Squared 6000 board has been included to replace the not longer available MinnowBoard Turbot E3826/E3845. Additionally, LAVA support has also been added in order to run automated tests using the new reference board.
Finally, in an effort to allow developers to check that their changes follow Debian’s best practices, Apertis added a lintian step in its CI with a custom profile. This results in a better developer experience, specially for those new in Apertis.
