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
  • This 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
  • The usual tarball setup as per Gentoo Handbook is left to the user.
  • Forum thread with instructions at https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=8765
