When they released the Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) operating system series last month, Canonical said that Raspberry Pi’s Foundation’s latest Raspberry Pi 4 boards will be official supported. However, Ubuntu 19.10 ships with a Linux kernel bug that blocks the use of USB ports out of the box in the official arm64 image on the Raspberry Pi 4 SBC with 4GB RAM. Canonical is currently working hard to test kernel patches for this bug, which should soon be released for everyone. Meanwhile, Canonical pledges to offer full, out-of-the-box official support for its Ubuntu Linux operating system on all Raspberry Pi single-board computers, including the original Raspberry Pi board, as well as all Raspberry Pi 2, Raspberry Pi 3, and Raspberry Pi 4 models. Both Ubuntu Server and Ubuntu Core will be officially supported on the Raspberry Pi boards.
