Linux Installer Releases

Manjaro ARM

Manjaro.png

The manjaro-arm-installer script is intended to install Manjaro ARM directly to SD/eMMC cards without the need for images (including LXQT, Mate & CuboCore editions, as well as full disk encryption). Running on a Linux x86 computer, it can install Manjaro ARM directly to an empty eMMC using an eMMC to USB adapter. The script can also be run from SD to install an image to the eMMC.

Debian

Debian.png
  • Uses only the upstream kernel and firmware without special patches
  • No graphical display yet, works only through serial console
  • Requires adding the non-free component to your /etc/apt/sources.list file and installing the "firmware-linux" package for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support
  • Installer is loaded into RAM, can install onto the same media from which it’s booted
  • Supports automatic partitioning and full disk encryption through LVM
  • Installer currently doesn't install the bootloader, leaving the installed system in an unbootable state until it's manually added

The relevant files are built daily here and may sometimes be unavailable if the build system is having issues. The "README.concatenateable_images" file provides instructions on how to combine the partition.img.gz file with the firmware.pinebook-pro.rk3399.img.gz file in order to create a DD-able image.

The official images are not recommended yet until the display begins working and the installer properly installs the bootloader. Most users will want to see Daniel Thompson's Debian Installer instead.

Gentoo

GentooLogo.png

There is a script that prepares a Gentoo arm64 stage 3 tarball for the Pinebook Pro. The script takes care of device specifics like an optimized make.conf, an overlay that provides kernel and firmware amongst others, and other miscellaneous fixes.

Installation

Kali Linux

Kali.jpeg

There is a script to create official Kali Linux OS images for the Pinebook Pro. The script carries out the build process in entirety and is Pinebook Pro specific.

Installation

K1ss OS

K1ss.png

There is a repository containing an unofficial port of KISS Linux to AARCH64. The tarball is built for generic aarch64, currently being tested on the Pinebook Pro. You can follow the ongoing discussion about K1ss Linux on the PINE64 forum.

Installation

NixOS

Nixos.png

You can follow the ongoing discussion about NixOS on the PINE64 forum. There is a good chance we will see Tier 1 support for aarch64, including the Pinebook Pro, in 2021 (see https://github.com/NixOS/rfcs/pull/87).

Installation

SkiffOS
