Is there just one fuctioning Debian Desktop image?
#1
I have tried numerous and they all have had problems.

Armbian ( https://dl.armbian.com/pine64/) : just loads up to a certain point then starts just spewing "Call trace:" Even their Ubuntu image won't boot (Kernel panic).



The Ayunfan current image ( https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/linux-b...tag/0.7.19 ) boots, but requires additional files from an repo to install a desktop which is no longer available.

Older versions seem to get that Kernel Panic also.

The only one I can get up and running, is the one listed on the Wiki, but is not stable at all.

Another other suggestions?

I know it's not "Debian", but did you try the xenial-mate image? (xenial-mate-pinebook-bspkernel-0.7.19-118.img.xz)

And for the debian images, you probably need to fix up the package repository list as it's changed. It's got nothing to do with the install_desktop script, as it only needs an extra repo added when doing elementary.

If you pull the install_desktop script appart, you'll see there isn't actually much to it.

1) Install these packages by default:

Code:
xserver-xorg-video-fbturbo
xserver-xorg-video-armsoc-sunxi
libmali-sunxi-utgard0-r6p0
mesa-utils-extra
glmark2-es2
libvdpau-sunxi1
vdpauinfo
aisleriot
geany
gnomine
gnome-sudoku
mplayer
scratch
smplayer
smplayer-themes
smtube
chromium-browser


2) If installing mate, add these ones:
Code:
ubuntu-mate-core
ubuntu-mate-desktop
ubuntu-mate-lightdm-theme
ubuntu-mate-wallpapers-xenial
lightdm


3) Do some tweaks:
Code:
# Kill parport module loading, not available on arm64.
if [ -e "/etc/modules-load.d/cups-filters.conf" ]; then
echo "" >/etc/modules-load.d/cups-filters.conf
fi

# Disable Pulseaudio timer scheduling which does not work with sndhdmi driver.
if [ -e "/etc/pulse/default.pa" ]; then
sed -i 's/load-module module-udev-detect$/& tsched=0/g' /etc/pulse/default.pa
fi


4) And if install_desktop is being used to setup a GUI image, systemctl set-default graphical.target is run also. 

Now, since this is debian, the packages with ubuntu in their name probably aren't available. So, maybe something like this will work instead? Completely untested so use at your own risk.
