Debian Userland on top of existing Linux build?
#1
On the wiki ( https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/Quartz64 ) it mentions installing Debian testing userland.

Is it possible to do this without touching an existing 4.19 based boot partition (so keep the existing working kernel and dtb file)?

How do I actually do it?

I am looking at this https://wiki.debian.org/Arm64Port

downloading arm64 debootstrap onto a debian box, unpacking and sending the files over to the quartz64 and running it there seems to be working.
Lets see if it completes....

I can't get it to work.
After all the downloads it fails to actually extract anything:-
Code:
I: Validating util-linux 2.36.1-8
I: Validating libxxhash0 0.8.0-2
I: Validating liblzma5 5.2.5-2
I: Validating xz-utils 5.2.5-2
I: Validating zlib1g 1:1.2.11.dfsg-2
I: Chosen extractor for .deb packages: ar
I: Extracting libacl1...
does the partition have to be empty or something?

OK. with the partition emptied debootstrap unpacks all of the packages.
The problem now is that the kernel boots up but then panics

I have no /sbin/init
that can't help

I booted from sdcard, chrooted to the mmc partition 3 and did apt-get install systemd-sysv
a couple of reboots later I'm here
