An unofficial Fedora Installer for Pinebook Pro
#1
I made an installer script for Fedora on Pinebook Pro. For now I am using Manjaro kernel. I have done a lot of testing, but comment, issues and PRs are welcome.

Thanks for the script. I just used it to set up my pbp cause there is no official release till now. Running smooth, only the sound is horrible. Is there a patch missing to fix the sound issue?

I am happy you like it. The sound is horrible, to be honest I have not looked in to it. I am working on a copr repo to make the image more fedorish. But check out this thread https://github.com/smithmcgriff/Fedora-o...o/issues/7. Try what @westurner writes in first post.

Thanks, with alsamixer I could adjust the sound. Do you know more about upcoming official support of the pbp, I didn’t find any definite statements?

Official support is coming soon in Fedora 33, according to the fine folks from #fedora-arm@freenode.net .

I did use the script to install fedora on an SD card. On my emmc I am running the original fedora 32 gnome image updated to 33 but still running the 5.7 kernel. Initially I tried to install fedora 33 with the install script but that failed (seem like this might be fixed) so installed fedora 32 and updated to 33 and installed the pbp-kernel (5.9.8).

Hi there,
I've installed Fedora with this howto (https://github.com/bengtfredh/pinebook-p...taller.git) on a 16GB SD-Card. I've also a fedora installation on the EMMC (https://builds.armdevelopers.com/pineboo...pro.img.xz). The Pinebook-Pro always boot from EMMC, I think the SD-card-Image isn't working on my laptop.
If I update my working EMMC-Image with kernel-pbp.aarch64, laptop is booting fine, but I have to leave the original (5.7) kernel. Otherwise the laptop can't boot anymore.
@aptupdate: How can I get a working Fedora from your howto?

Thanks
Andreas

Hello aptupdate

thank you very much for these prebuild images https://s3.fredhs.net/minio/pinebook-pro-image/

Thats exactly what I'm looking for. Now I'm in the process to rebuild my Pinebook Pro with your image !

Next week I take your image and try to modify it for booting my Helios64 NAS-Device (it's based on the same processor and network card).

Thanks
Andreas
