[Dev] [Arm-netbook] early access EOMA68 to hardware for parabola ARM maintainers?

hiya folks,

whilst preparing an early 2.7.4 sample i tried the parabola image that
i have here, which worked well back in june-august 2016 and i have not
updated since.  alongside XFCE4 i deployed eudev and openrc and it
works extremely effectively (and provides a faster boot time).

when endeavouring to do an update there were two key conflicts,
related to udev, systemd and mesa-gl attempting to be upgraded.  the
upgrade could therefore not proceed.

now, i *might* have a micro-sd card which has the full XFCE4
pre-tested image on it: around that time i remember losing a couple of
pre-prepared images due to sdcard corruption thanks to NAND IC
interference.  if i can find it that is what will have to go out...
but it will *not be upgradeable*.

could someone (on parabola) please check this out and see what's going on?

many many thanks,
