Arch linux
#1
Hello everyone, I recently purchased a rock64 SbC and I want to install arch linux. I've installed u-boot and installed/burned arch linux onto my micro sd card and hdd. Upon booting it for the first time I got no signal on my keyboard and mouse. Then I booted it for the second time and my keyboard flash it's lights, so did the mouse but my monitor DID NOT detect any signal.

Any Ideas?

The image I used is from this one, I've also tried this image. That didn't fix anything.

You might be asking ' why arch linux and not one of the software images in the rock64 wiki? ' - Well Fedora has a problem with the root password. Debian cannot connect to my wifi network, Xenial mate does but it's laggy and sluggish, Xenial I3 doesn't connect to my wifi network. And I have experience with arch linux, I would prefer Void Linux over Arch but the board isn't supported.

I just realised that Arch Linux should run(by default) in headless(without hdmi or graphical interface) mode. Sorry for the inconvience.

Following the steps outlined in https://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv8...hip/rock64I managed to get Arch Linux Arm to run on my Rock64 but unfortunately USB 3.0 is not working at all.
