Downloaded directly from Git. Used 2 sdcard's with Pine64 Installer and tried with .xz file and .img file also. Don't know what am I doing wrong.
Do I have bricked Pinebook?? Well, no I tried Armbian afterwards and it is working. You probably uploaded wrong file on Git, all three files have the same size.

An help??? What to do??? This is so irritating!

This doesn't work:
https://github.com/anarsoul/linux-build/...5-1.img.xz

Tried previous release without xfce, that one is working!

I've downloaded archlinux-xfce-pinebook-20171225-1.img.xz, which has md5: 87a95397eaa9880a44883c007c50ef77

I've manually unzipped it and then wrote to sdcard using wind32-disk-imager. That works for me!

Hi I also did the same thing with various SD cards, and various programs for flashing image and no luck. I think that the problem lies in my Pinebook. Anyway it is strange, because all other images are working fine.

Only thing that I can do is buy a cable and debug kernel. Is this cable sufficient:

My intention is to connect it with my Raspberry Pi and finally see what is wrong.

After talking with anarsoul, we concluded that problem is in u-boot. At least in my case on my brand new, very little used Pinebook.

I decided not to spend time and money on debugging kernel and sending data to anarsoul for analysis. Instead I will wait for a new release for eMMC which will not come very soon because it is not easy to fix the problem which is anarsoul currently experiencing. Hopefully new version will work for me, in the meanwhile I will also wait for some other builds in the future which are following latest Linux OS systems, where I can install latest packages and at the same time enjoy speed and simplicity. Something like Armbian, but with latest Linux OS not some LTS version. That would be my dream. Something like Raspbian.

Peace.

I have the image installed on a 32Gig card, but I'm running out of space when I run Pacman -Syu.

When I do a df -h, I'm only seeing about 10 gig worth of image size.

Is there a way to resize the image from inside the ArchLinux image?

Or do I need to boot to the eMMC and run parted on the sd card?

[UPDATE: ] I took the easy way out. Rebooted to the emmc running Ubuntu Mate and installed gparted. Ran that and resized the sd card partition and rebooted.

I tried it yesterday and it looks nice, XFCE works out of the box, so just made a full update during the night and today will try to install KDE desktop Smile

So I installed KDE Plasma and it runs almost without problems, and the most important, it is the latest version available, newer than on Netrunner.

After closing the lid and then opening I lost a wifi connection, maybe it is necessary to reconfigure wlan adapter again. Then I removed lxdm and I was not longer able to start KDE. Today I try to install it to emmc Smile

Could I install from SD to eMMC?

Did you try to use ethernet usb dongle?

anarsoul and Xalius said that running this build of off eMMC is currently not possible.

Why? I did not notice this post before writing the image to emmc.

I can't upgrade with pacman -Suy too slow connection.

I disable ipv6 from shell because do it on uEnv.txt doesn't run...

I rebuild mirrorlists.txt with more fast mirror.

Try with wifi and eth dongle.

Nothing, archlinuxarm repo don't download all packages and pacman fails.

Any suggestion?
