  Anyone try to install this yet? Going to be hard without a keyboard. Don't think it will run without one.

  Have you ever seen Parrot? Needs a keyboard to load and run.

Last time I checked the Pinebook had a keyboard.

Yeah, I've seen a bunch of them... even saw six different coloured ones the other night (image shamelessly stolen from a post by Igor on the Armbian forum):

But on a more serious note, FYI... pinebook has both a screen, keyboard and trackpad... so we should be all set! :-P We don't have an automatic beer dispenser (much to Luke's dismay, I think), but I think Marcus has working on a PADI controlled one! :-D :-D

Sorry, my confusion. I've been trying the ARM version on a Pine64 and not having much luck writing it to the SD card. No clear instructions out since it's so new. Fun setup though. Sorry again for confusion.

lol... no problem... that makes more sense now! Wink Maybe keep an eye out for when the pinebook version come out... maybe you'll be able to wrangle that on onto the pine64 then... as it's the same processor architecture... so no fighting with arm64 vs armhf, etc. You never might... it might *just work*... or not!
