Maintained Linux booting from eMMC
#1
Brick 
Does anyone know of an actively maintained Linux that works on RockPro64 running off of the eMMC? If so please post in a reply.

I was using Ayufan's Ubuntu before I was concerned about the fact that it isn't well maintained and thus could be vulnerable to security exploits since the last stable release.

I also now feel like I've tried all the version of Linuxes listed on the wiki page and so far only older version of Armbian seems to boot from the eMMC module. Unfortunately, last time I tried to set it up for my use case (as a Docker host) the older version of the Linux kernel stopped progress!

I was hopeful something like SkiffOS using Gentoo would help being custom built but I've run into some walls getting it to build or copy over to the eMMC so I'm stuck there too.

This is a SUPER frustrating experience (in fact most of my Pine64 experiences have been frustrating due to software issues, OS stuff mainly). Short of learning how to build and patch my own Linux (I'm technical but that is well out of my experience) I'm at a bit of loss as what to do.

(Side question: Does anyone else find the Pine64 boards frustrating due to OS support issues?)


In any case please, if you have them, post links or instructions as to how you got an actively maintained Linux booting off of the eMMC for RockPro64 thank you!
