Hey,

I installed the latest image to my SD-Card und run an update after.
Now my computer wont boot from the card and the screen is just black.

Am I the only one having the issue? Do I need to update uboot maybe first?
Which options to I need for the pinebook when compiling the kernel? I want to compile linux-pf for it.

I've just dd'it the latest (20181104) image to a sd card and the screen goes black as well :$

EDIT: The issue is the u-boot code is not updated to support pinebook. ayufan's repo has been updated so expect a release soon with the proper u-boot. Thanks to @gamiee on IRC/discord for the findings Smile

On the wiki what does "* From SSH Login default disable root to access . So please first login alarm after command su password root to switch root" even mean? The English is kind of really broken.

Does anyone else have problems with wifi in the current 'Arch Linux mainline XFCE [20181104] by anarsoul for 1080P Pinebook ' release. I use it from a SD card.
I know there is the tip in the release notes to fix the MAC and I followed that but the wifi drops really often.
Sometimes it comes back after a few seconds, sometimes

Also I am not sure if the trick works completely, with the alarm user it seemed to work, but with a new user I have set up I notice that the address moved back to random.

Last observation, and I am not sure if this is related at all is that every now and then the boot hangs with:
Quote:'no ethernet found'


Is anyone else experiencing wifi/network issues with Archlinux ?

I had some problems getting wifi up consistently without getting intermittent and sporadic errors about "no route to host" and packet loss when pinging.

I found a workaround that did indeed help. Open a terminal and enter as root:


Code:
ip route add default via 192.168.0.1 dev wlan0
Note, that you should change the ip address above to that of your router. Otherwise it won't work.

Since I did that a couple of hours ago my wifi connection on the pinebook is stable.

The disadvantage of the above method is that it does not cure the root cause (which is unknown to me) but the symptom. So this has to be entered after every boot and maybe even every reconnect (haven't tried that yet).

It looks like that this workaround does not work all the time.

After a reboot and entering the above line in a terminal the behaviour of the network connection over wifi was not better than it was before entering it.


I had to flood an external ip address with pings and after a couple of minutes I had a more or less stable network connection.


I habe been sitting over this for a couple of days now and can't figure it out.

Hi all,

I am new to pinebook and just receive my 11.6 1080p one.

I tried the latest two archlinux images from anarsoul's github repo,
flashed both by the official installer,
but still the pinebook did not seem to boot.  Sad
The display remains black.  It does not react to capslock or numlock LED either.

BTW, the built-in KDE Neon can boot.

Does the size of sdcard matters?  I use a 128GB one.

Any comments would be highly appreciated.
Thanks!
