{{note|This page is a work in progress. It's not a tutorial you can follow yet. Wait for the 5.16 kernel release. Right now there's still an undocumented step left: installing a custom kernel package to get it booting. This will no longer be necessary with Linux 5.16.}}

== Booting And Finishing Setup ==
Hook up your UART dongle to your Quartz64, open a serial terminal at 1.5mbauds. Install the SD card or eMMC module inside the Quartz64, and plug in the power.
Once you hit a login shell, log in as <code>root</code> with password <code>root</code> and run:
# pacman-key --init
# pacman-key --populate archlinuxarm
You are now ready to use Arch Linux ARM! Either delete or rename (and move the homedir of) the <code>alarm</code> user, and you're all set. Don't forget to install things like <code>sudo</code> and setting up sudo groups and such.
