Trying to get Quartz model A working
#1
Tongue 
Hey there,
I hope you guys can help me get started on this one.

At the moment did the following and got stuck:

- Quartz model A board, with power and HDMI connected to external monitor
- Downloaded & Installed Balena Etcher in my Ubuntu
- Downloaded latest armbian image (Notice Armbian download link is broken on the Pine website)
https://armbian.hosthatch.com/archive/pineh64/archive/

Installed this on the EMMC card. Is there any switch to tell the board that needs to boot from the emmc or is automatic?
   

When I turn on the board, guess it's the Power button, do not get (so far anything) using HDMI.
Question: It would be really great to make a "getting started" section where is a bit more explained how to get started with this.

I know is only for developers, but developers don't necessarily need to be Rocket scientists to install Linux in a board Idea

Tried with Manjaro release:
https://github.com/manjaro-arm/quartz64-...g/20220606

and it seems HDMI works out of the box. Now next step is to connect a keyboard and try it out!

Maybe I just choosed the Armbian wrong distribution from the Archive? Or just one where the HDMI drivers are still not working.

One more recommendation: Can anyone tell me if there is a Linux distribution that I can install where it has already the Eink drivers?
Would like to connect an epaper and try it out.
Thanks a lot for your feedback.
