Armbian for Rock64
#21
it is true that Armbian Bionic with Kernel 5.4 won't run on a Rock64 V.2.0?

In fact i tried and it would not show any screen and i blamed until now the hdmi-to-vga adapter or hdmi-to-dvi adapter.


Thank you.

Thank you.

Actually the Armbian Buster with Linux kernel 5.4.x run well on Rock64 rev 2, mine run as a headless server.

Seems to be hit and miss.   My v2 1GB won't boot any armbian except stable bionic with 4.4 kernel.  Tried a bunch of 5.4 armbians with no luck.  irc user lanefu bought a v2 to test...his works fine.  I dont know why.  I suspect its the uboot/kernel config.
Arch/Manjaro latest works but their config breaks any compiling above using -j1 even with a swap file.   I don't believe the devs on arm linux know how to deal with the deviations from a maker who has at least 3 versions of the same board.   Mine came out of a Recon-Sentinel from ebay fwiw.

EDIT: 4-7-20 I just installed latest ayufan ubu focal unstable image and its been ok for a day now. Time will tell if this becomes my main image vs arch/manjaro.

Hi, i own a ROCK64 rev2 and I'm unable to boot on any armbian from an SDcard... the board just won't boot !

I checked the sdcard and it's perfectly fine, a single ext4 partition totally readable on my linux laptop but the board just don't boot on it, blank screen.

I have no problem with ayufan images but they include a vfat boot partition as for raspberrypis...

Would any of you have a clue of how to make this work ? Thanks
