Arch Linux ARM root filesystem
Thank you so much for this !
I've successfully migrated from Nadia's repos using your FAQ. I've only had to comment the
LABEL=BOOT_ALARM  /boot  vfat    defaults        0      0
line from /etc/fstab to boot properly.

Many thanks - easy to follow instructions, swapped the dtb in extlinux for rockpro64 and it runs, as far as I have played, flawlessly on my RockPro64.

Even better - booting from the SDcard both the eMMC & NVMe are visible which is really promising - something I have never achieved before with any kernel higher than 4.4 (tried Armbian, Manjaro etc - on any of those the boot hangs if the eMMC is present).

Still a lot of playing/learning to do but so far really likely to be able to swap to arch on my RockPro64: so far no problems with USB, Eth0, HDMI, eMMC & NVMe. Nothing too scary in the logs - still need to see if I have any sound, and probably benchmark the eMMC & NVMe. Could generate the pacman keyring fine and even update to the 5.13.1 kernel.

Thank you again
