=== Daniel Thompson's Debian Installer for the Pinebook Pro ===
The [https://gitlab.manjaro.org/manjaro-arm/applications/manjaro-arm-installer 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.
* This is an image creator and Debian installer that runs from an existing Linux OS and installs Debian Bullseye
** Installer can configure an encrypted rootfs and provides a choice of desktops, including the default Debian desktop based on Gnome 3
** Strict adoption of upstream Debian packages (with exception of kernel and bootloaders) in order to provide a clean upgrade path as Bullseye matures
* Download at: https://github.com/daniel-thompson/pinebook-pro-debian-installer/

== Gentoo ==
[[File:GentooLogo.png|right|100px]]
 
There is a script that prepares a Gentoo arm64 stage 3 tarball for the Pinebook Pro. Unfortunately, this script is not currently functional, and requires extensive troubleshooting to make work. New instructions are currently being created and will be available here.
 
 
'''Word to the wise'''
 
Currently, following the instructions on the Pinebook pro gentoo github page will *not* result in a functional system. Therefore it is neccesary to follow the instructions given here. Please bear in mind that the Pinebook pro's six arm cores and 4gb of ram are extremely anemic. For example, emerging the package net-libs/webkit-gtk in order to build the minimalist web-browser "surf", a process which takes eighty minutes on an intel core i5-8250U with 8gb of ram, required eight hours of compile time,
Basic installation alone can take 24 hours of compillation, dozens of reboots, and hours of troubleshooting. After that, even installing firefox would take 17 hours.
Now that that's out of the way, we may begin the installation.
 
'''Preparing the bootloader'''
 
Installing a functional bootloader can be difficult. Luckily, the tow-boot project provides a UEFI-like experience for some arm-based devices. Furthermore, it is not neccesary install this bootloader manually, as it will continue to be useable even after the disk has been reformatted, as long as the bootloader remains unscathed.
 
https://manjaro.org/downloads/arm/pinebook-pro/arm8-pinebook-pro-minimal/
 
No-matter where you intend to install gentoo, the bootloader should always be installed on the eMMC flash, although technically the SD card slot could also be used. Either way, install any of the official Manjaro arm disk images to the internal eMMC (there's no reason not to use the minimal image, as you will not be using this OS for anything). You may use a second operating system installed on an SD-card, or the official Pine64 eMMC USB adapter. Boot into this operating system to ensure that the bootloader functions, but after that you have no further need of it.
 
Next, if you already have an OS on an SD card, you can use that for installing gentoo. If you don't, you may be pleasantly suprised to find that tow-boot is cabable of booting from a USB drive. Therefore, you may install the same Manjaro image to your USB drive or SD card, and select it from the boot menu. You should now have an unused but bootable OS on the eMMC, and another bootable, usable OS on your external storage.
 
'''Preparing the Disks'''
 
Log into your host device as root with the following command:
 
<code> sudo su </code>
 
Enter your password.
 
Let the device on which you intend to install gentoo be refered to hereafter as /dev/<gentoo>. Use the following command to prepare this disk for installation:
 
<code> fdisk -B /dev/<gentoo> </code>
 
Note: don't just copy these commands! You should substitute <gentoo> for mmcblk2 for the internal eMMC flash storage.
 
Note that the first block of the boot partition is block 62500. Delete all partitions, but *do not* re-format the disk. Create a new boot partition starting at 62500, and as it's size select "+1GB". Create a new swap partition. fdisk will try to start it at the beginning of the volume (before the boot partition) Instead, when it prompts you for the starting position, enter in the end sector of the boot partition. It should then tell you that this is within an existing partition, and recommend a slightly higher value. Press enter, and give for the size of the partition any value greater than "+4gb". You need this much ram to be able to suspend your system, and emerge large packages. Don't be stingey - you still have SD cards. I reccomend "+8gb".
Finally, add a root partition starting at the end sector of the swap partition, and use the rest of the disk for it. That should be 50-60 GB depending on the size of your swap and boot partitions.
 
Lastly, press "t" to set the type of each partition. You may set partition 1 to type 6, 2 to type 82, and 3 to type 83.
 
to set the partition types of the three partitions.
 
<code>lsblk</code>
 
to remind yourself which disk is /dev/<gentoo>
Write the filesystems to these three partitions with the commands:
 
<code>mkfs.vfat /dev/<gentoo>p1
 
mkswap /dev/<gentoo>p2
 
mkfs.ext4 /dev/<gentoo>p3</code>
 
 
This may be a slightly different format if you're installing to a usb stick.
 
'''Installation'''
 
make the directory for mounting the filesystem you just created. These should be made on the external OS.
 
<code>mkdir /mnt/gentoo
 
mount /dev/<gentoo>p3 /mnt/gentoo</code>
 
cd into this directory and fire up links. Navigate to gentoo.org/downloads and select the stage 3 minimal stage 3 tarball. Download it to your current directory, or move it to that directory from wherever it has been downloaded to. Once you are in the correct directory, unpack the tarball.
 
<code>tar xpvf stage3-arm64-<blah blah blah></code>
 
Mount the boot partition.
 
<code>mount /dev/<gentoo>p1 /mnt/gentoo/boot</code>
 
 
Chroot into the mounted directory and Install the operating system as per the AMD64 manual [https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64]. Before you emerge anything, however, be sure to set your use flags as follows:
 
<code>nano /etc/portage/make.conf</code>
 
 
<code>MAKEOPTS="-j4 -l4"
 
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="* **"
 
ACCEPT_LICENSE="*"
 
USE="X gtk bluetooth pulseaudio"
</code>
 
You can use your own options instead of these if you know what you're doing. It's not super difficult.
 
Continue installing the operating system, but stop just before emerging the @world set. I don't know if this is necessary, but I haven't had the time to try without doing this. Clone Janikk2099's github repo. It doesn't matter where, and run the script. If it fails run it a couple more times.
 
<code>git clone https://github.com/Jannik2099/gentoo-pinebookpro
 
./gentoo-pinebookpro/prepare.sh</code>
 
Don't follow any of Janikk's other instructions. They appear to be out of date (no offense bro). Let me be clear: DO NOT INSTALL U-BOOT. I don't know what will happen, but it won't be an improvement over the existing boot-loader so don't worry about it.
 
Finish installing your system until you come to the kernel.
 
'''Custom Kernel'''
 
Use sys-kernel/gentoo-kernel-bin as your kernel. You will need to manually edit the kernel configuration. First, select it as your kernel.
 
<code>eselect kernel list</code>
 
This should list only one option. Otherwise, select the number matching <code>linux-5.<whatever is latest>-gentoo-dist</code>, and cd into the kernel source directory.
 
<code>eselect kernel set <number>
 
cd /usr/src/linux</code>
 
Begin the kernel configuration
 
<code>make menuconfig</code>
 
At this point, you're almost on your own. I don't know a strict cause-and-effect relationship between my kernel config and the behavior of my system. For starters, just go into platform selection and deselect everything except rockchip platforms. Once you're done save your configuration and exit. Make sure boot is mounted, and your fstab is set up with your swap mounted. Make sure dracut is installed.
 
<code>make
 
make modules
 
make dtbs
 
make install

=== Gentoo Script for Pinebook Pro ===
make dtbs_install
* 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 [https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64 Gentoo Handbook] is left to the user.
* Forum thread with instructions at https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=8765


==Kali Script==
ls /lib/modules
 
dracut -f --kver <name of directory in /lib/modules matching your kernel, *not* the kernel name from eselect>
</code>
 
emerge the package extlinux and run <code>u-boot-update</code>. Open the extlinux configuration file.
 
<code>nano /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf</code>
 
And configure it as follows:
 
LABEL <label of your choice, for example GENTOO ARM>
 
KERNEL /<name of your vmlinuz kernel image. Include the slash, but be relative to boot, not root.>
 
FDT /dtbs/<kernel-version>/rockchip/rk3399-pinebook-pro.dtb
APPEND initrd=/<name of initramfs image> root=PARTUUID-<nboot partition's PARTUUID, no quotes> rw rootwait
</code>
 
You can use the blkid command to find the PARTUUID of every partition on the machine. None of this configuration is guaranteed to work, but it worked for me, and given enough fiddling you can get it to work as well.
 
Now you should reboot the machine and see if it boots into gentoo. If it does: congratulations! If not, too bad. Try again.
