Debian Base (3.10.102 BSP 2) won't boot without monitor
#1
I want to use my Pine64+ (2 GB) as a headless fileserver but it won't boot up unless monitor is connected. Are there any workarounds?

Operating system is latest Debian Base (3.10.102 BSP 2).

Seems you loaded the IMG from pine64.pro. If you just need a headless server image, i advise to load the longsleep image from his server:

See http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?t...27#pid2827 for instructions and help.

You know that exactly this image is known for poor NAS performance due to inappropriate default settings? Let a moderator explain it: http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?t...6#pid19986

It starts to seem that buying this Pine64+ was total waste of my time and money. I was hoping to replace my RPi3 with Pine to get better network speed but if there is no working Debian base image to use I'm going to dump this project. I was already disappointed about that the newest usable kernel  was from the age of the Flintstones. And when I tried to update that Debian Base installation with aptitude it wanted to update all kind of left over grab from late Mate installation. So not even Pine's Debian base image is not free from unnecessary GUI stuff.

I also don't want to start my own Linux From Scratch project using UART/COM ports to get linux installation done as seems to be case with those images Androsch proposed. It's been 25 years since last time I had to use COM ports to connect computers and I'm not going start it again now.

Thanks anyway for all those who had the patience to answer my questions.

Choose the one based on legacy kernel now: http://www.armbian.com/pine64/  (SSH is active, wait a minute, then first login with root/1234, afterwards you're forced to change the password and create a normal user)

The one basing on kernel 4.7.0 works but is a bit slow and especially the Ethernet driver is WiP (I'm just in this moment testing new version v4 but on a H3 board running 4.8-rc6). In case you really want to give mainline a try I fear you have to read through the appropriate thread in Armbian forum.

I will give it a try.
