Armbian Groovy/Bullseye with Gnome
#1
Rainbow 
I built some Armbian 21.02.0-trunk Groovy images (both minimal and GNOME3) last night.

They are available here: https://www.ironrobin.net/clover/droppy/...ro/armbian

I hope you find them useful!

Bugs I've found:
- Locking / blanking the screen crashes or freezes gnome-shell on wayland. Can't reproduce the issue with X11. (issue recently resolved: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/-/issues/1536)

11/28 Update: fixed bootsplash
#2
Nice, does it support suspend mode with NVMe?
#3
No I think it shares the bugs with upstream kernel sadly.
#4
is root encryption working with it?

it looks like you will have to build an image yourself if you want LUKS: https://maxammann.org/posts/2020/01/armb...rypt-root/

There aren't any GNOME images by default so I will give you the dependency list I used to install GNOME (mostly ripped from the manjaro-arm-tools):

Code:
sudo apt install -y gnome gnome-power-manager gnome-applets gedit gnome-control-center gnome-disk-utility gnome-font-viewer \
                    gnome-keyring gnome-screenshot gnome-session gnome-settings-daemon gnome-shell gnome-shell-extensions \
                    gnome-system-log gnome-system-monitor gnome-user-docs gnome-user-share gnome-terminal nautilus file-roller \
                    gufw gnome-tweaks chrome-gnome-shell tlp xdg-user-dirs gnome-session-wayland xorg gnome-panel gdm3 breeze-cursor-theme

I haven't been able to get any of the Armbian builds to boot on my PBP, including this one -- u-boot reports errors running the boot.scr file. I am using the u-boot @pcm720 put together to enable booting from NVMe drivers (https://github.com/pcm720/rockchip-u-boot/releases). Please could you tell me which u-boot you are using and I will try and upgrade.

I am using upstream u-boot with patches for nvme booting on my emmc.

binaries + readme instructions for flashing: https://www.ironrobin.net/clover/droppy/...kPro/uboot

the armbian builds always boot fine for me (both from sd card or nvme). thanks for letting me know, i will look into why it might not be booting.

Bullseye (Testing) images now available if you prefer a more pure debian experience!

Ye! I downloaded the arm64 netinstall .iso and flashed it to an SDcard but my PBP doesn't seem to boot from it (I have booted other OS's from SDcard np) is it not that easy?
