Arch Linux image (BSP Kernel)
#1
Well, you wanted images - here we go. If you are brave you can run Linux on your Pine64 now. **This image is intended for developers. If you are looking for accelerated 2D/3D or video decoding use Android** and do not bother with trying this image.

Important: I will not provide any further releases to the this Arch image. If you use this image, the Kernel and U-Boot update script will continue to work but you will not benefit from any packaging stuff i do for Ubuntu. Consider to change to my Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus releases.

What you get:

- HDMI at 1080p with 60Hz
- Ethernet (100M only including 1000M)
- USB
- Wifi
- Arch Linux aarch64
- BSP Linux Kernel 3.10.65+ (see http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=293)
- BSP U-Boot (see http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=99)
- Support for all Pine64 models (512MB, 1GB, 2GB) with auto detection so Ethernet works with the same image on all models

It actually works good enough so i feel i can publish it.  While the image is quite minimal, you can install all the software from the Arch Linux aarch64 repository including X11 and Xfce.

History:

**20160221-2**
- Initial public release
- Known issue: Ethernet hardcoded to use 100M only
- Known issue: Firefox crashes

- Known issue: Kernel is entered in EL1

**20160227-1**
- Ethernet now supports 1000M
- Kernel is now entered in EL2, means the hypervisor works (tested with KVM)
- Disk size was reduced to 3700MiB so it fits on 4GB media

**20160304-1**
- Kernel updated to 20160304-1.
- Device tree was updated to improve thermal throttling and Ethernet 1000M speed and compatibility.

**20160308-1**
- Updated U-Boot and device tree to 20160306-1
- Updated Kernel to 3.10.65-2-pine64-longsleep-39-1
- Ethernet MAC address is now persistent (added to uEnv.txt on first boot)
- Added system service to reenable CPU cores
- Added helper Pine64 platform scripts to /usr/local/sbin
- Linux Kernel firmware and headers are now installed

**20160403-1**
- Updated Kernel to 3.10.65-4-pine64-longsleep-16 (fixing Pine64+ 2GB model Ethernet crash)
