I downloaded archlinux-xfce-pinebook-20171225-1.img, came to the login screen, but when I try to login with either alarm/alarm root/root, I get trown back at the same login screen. Well, let me try some more ;-)

ok, never mind, ignore the above, I am logged in Smile

Followed the steps on https://github.com/anarsoul/linux-build/...g/20171225 and after 13. indeed sound stopped crashing the whole pinebook ;Wink

Nice! I like it, it run pretty smooth so far. Fiddling for the first time with ArchLinux :Smile And wow a big leap to a newer kernel no? Don't have a clear view on what it all brings though, anything that I can read anywhere?-)
