KDE Install on new Pinebook, howto?
#1
So what now? I have downloaded and etched the latest KDE image on a micro SD.
Now I put the card into the Pinebook and that thing boots into a nice Linux KDE Desktop.
Now, how do I move that image to the eMMC?
Bear in mind, the eMMC is empty and unformatted, I only have the KDE on the micro SD....

Everything you need is in the wiki - NOOB section. But I'll make it easy for you: option 1) download the image you want to your installation running from SD. DD the downloaded image  to the eMMC from within the environment on SD as you would on any other computer to any other media; option 2) use FEL SD card OR open up the Pinebook and use the FEL button + A-to-A cable.

Been there. Downloaded image and etched.
a) KDE Neon image doesn't show up as microSD to eMMC - which is akward.
b) No other cables or adapters available
c) sudo ./Pine64_install_to_eMMC.sh won't work as I only have an 8GB microSD at hand

I am not sure you understood me, read the Flashing to eMMC from a SD Boot (Allwinner A64 Devices) in NOOB section.

On the latest KDE image /usr/local/sbin is empty. No script there. No way to do a pine64_install_to_eMMC

1) Boot from SD; 2) Open browser and download the image you want to flash; 3) DD to eMMC 4) take SD out; 5) boot from eMMC.
Not sure if I can make it clearer

As I said in my original post: only 8 GB SD available.
Can't make it any clearer, sorry.

This is what I am going to try. I am in the process so YMMV

Use this info to figure out which mirror downloads the fastest https://files.kde.org/neon/images/pinebo...mirrorlist 


IMAGE_URL=https://files.kde.org/neon/images/pinebook-remix-nonfree/useredition/20181028-1500/neon-pinebook-remix-useredition-20181028-1500-arm64-1080p.img.gz

Booted from the sd card.



Code:
umount -f /dev/mmcblk1*

curl -L -f "$IMAGE_URL" | gzip -d | dd bs=30M of=/dev/mmcblk1

sync

Also would like to point out that pine64_install_to_eMMC.sh is an ayufan script. It will not work with the KDE Neon remix

Update this worked for me. (I didn't like the dd from curl as I wanted to verify the chksum...)

curl -kO http://mirror.cc.columbia.edu/pub/softwa...80p.img.gz

sha256sum neon-pinebook-remix-useredition-20181028-1500-arm64-1080p.img.gz

cat neon-pinebook-remix-useredition-20181028-1500-arm64-1080p.img.gz | gzip -d | dd bs=24M of=/dev/mmcblk1

* remove sd card and reboot

Corkonian, 8GB is plenty for stretch minimal ...
xbcsmith, that is exactly what I meant.
