pmbootstrap to sdcard
#9
From scratch on Ubu 18.04:

pip3 install pmbootstrap
PATH="$PATH:~/.local/bin"
mkdir ~/.local/var/pmbootstrap
pmbootstrap init
pmbootstrap install --sdcard /dev/sda
pmbootstrap shutdown

~20 min into install it prompts (after I'm in bed):

. . .
[21:13:57] (rootfs_pine64-pinephone) mkinitfs postmarketos-allwinner
[21:14:01]  *** SET LOGIN PASSWORD FOR: 'user' ***
New password:
Retype new password:
passwd: password updated successfully
[06:10:04] NOTE: No valid keymap specified for device
[06:10:08] *** (3/5) PREPARE INSTALL BLOCKDEVICE ***
. . .
[06:18:56] NOTE: chroot is still active (use 'pmbootstrap shutdown' as necessary)
[06:18:56] Done

So I selected kde + extras, set the password above to something simple ... pass1234

Boot it on the phone.  Sluggish, but it boots, play around breifly, plug in to charge.,  Now I have a lock screen, but it's only numbers, and I can't unlock the thing.

This is fun . . . Wink!  Not much on google search for a default.  Might have blown past it somewhere.  Probably should have started an installation thread.
