Arch Linux on Rockpro64
#1
Do you guys had any success installing Arch Linux ARM on Rockpro64? Ayufan's debian is working fine for me but for Arch Linux ARM, it didn't even boot the OS.
I followed installation instructions on this page, but hadn't got any luck.

Hopefully you were using RockPro64 uboot & DTB? These guys seemed to be OK a couple of months back.

Installing Arch Linux ARM as described on the Rock64 page you link to, is not available for the RockPro64 (yet). There are alternatives to get a working Arch disto. All rely on installing one of the existing images and removing all but the kernel (boot folder) and u-boot. I followed these instructions and got a pretty stable set-up (NAS mostly):

Code:
$ cat /etc/os-release
NAME="Arch Linux ARM"
ID=archarm
ID_LIKE=arch
PRETTY_NAME="Arch Linux ARM"
ANSI_COLOR="0;36"
HOME_URL="http://archlinuxarm.org/"
SUPPORT_URL="https://archlinuxarm.org/forum"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://github.com/archlinuxarm/PKGBUILDs/issues"

and

Code:
$ uptime
21:19:28 up 42 days, 30 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.10, 0.09, 0.08

The HDMI port isn't going to work nicely with vanilla Arch, right? I guess I should stick with ayufan's Debian... at least for now

HDMI did work out of the box last time I used Arch on RK3399. (kernel from Debian)

Right now I'm using Arch on my rockpro64 to post this.
How to get hardware acceleration working? Does the driver exist for linux?

But HDMI didn't work if I use vanilla archlinux ARM kernel
