Its a first pre-release so expect things not to work or not work as expected. As always, offer feedback here an on ayufan's git.

  How to enable mate/startx on boot in jessie
Posted by: desai_amogh - 7 hours ago - Forum: Armbian - Replies (1)

I have a 2gb pineA64+.  I used this image https://www.armbian.com/pine64/ and got a barebones termina.

Installed xorg and mate-desktop-environment through apt-get.  Now I am having a hardtime getting it to stick at booting.

I did add a line exec startx in ~/.profile. But it boots the pine64 and asks for credentials in terminal and only gets to the gui after credentials are entered.  I also couldnt fine /etc/default/grub toset it up there.

What am I missing here??

Anyone can test and tell me?

Really appreciated.

  Linux for Rockpro64
Posted by: superpat - 05-21-2018, 05:51 AM - Forum: Linux - Replies (1)


My Rockpro64 is in transit!, will not be long now, unless it languishes in UK customs.

Looking at this forum and the Wiki, I cannot find anything on a Linux system.

As  it is a new system, I suppose that we will have to compile our own kernel.   I have had a look at the Rockchip git pages.  There is a LOT of info there, it will be a severe learning curve to  read, understand and pick out the apposite  parts!

It would be very nice if Pine could add a quick tutorial on what is the best build environment, Rockchip have a good page:-


Is this the way to go? or is there a better document.

I am extremely rusty on kernel config and compilation, the last time I did it in anger was  years ago on Slack version 0.98  on a dozen 3.5inch floppies !!

as I say, a steep relearning curve.

Bom Dia. Eu sou novo para isso e gostaria de ajuda, passei Xenial Mate (eMMC) diretamente para o meu Emmc com Etcher e usando o adaptador USB, ele ligou e pediu uma atualização de firmware do MicroSd para Emmc. Isso não terminou há 12 horas, algo está errado?

  Kodi + Docker - what are the image options for Rock64 to support this?
Posted by: zarusz - 05-20-2018, 01:41 AM - Forum: Linux - No Replies

Hi All,

I had rock64 for over 6 moths now, and thanks to the LibreELEC image I was able to achieve the desired use case:

  1. Kodi as the media player
  2. Samba/NAS
  3. Docker (via the Kodi plugin) to run multiple dockerized services (openHAB, mosquitto, syncthing, deluge). 
Things have been pretty stable. I even managed to spin down all the 3 attached disks when idle.

However, it still seems that the LibreELEC release is going to take some time to get an official release (I refer to this post).

So, apart from LibreELEC, is there any other alternative that would support the Kodi + Docker use case?
