Does not start, the monitor writes "invalid refresh rate of the screen", through ssh was connected but could not reach graphics settings by methods known to me (I tested version with KDE)

Probably a good idea to let the devs know on their forum ...

Hello,

This distribution uses graphical acceleration?
(3d, acceleration video of video players and web browsers ...)

I couldn't get the manjaro-arm-installer to work so I grabbed the 19.04 minimal image.   Flashed and booted fine.
Updated the keyring and uboot...rebooted and upgraded all to latest stuff.   Got 5.4.2 kernel atm.
No lima gles accel yet.  Working on it.

After a couple days of testing arch arm and manjaro arm  I've got what I wanted DE wise.   Manjaro installer  needs qemu ?   Went with a older image and updated it.    Works fine.   Lots of freezes with no log info.   Go back to Arch.

Same thing lots of freezes.   No idea why.  Heard its common to have power plug issues mines 5v 3a as recommended.
Network TX offload off   helps with ssh about it.    SDcards  tried usb hdd and 2 dif sdcards. that's not it.   v2 vs v3 boards the maker revised a resistor and pull up voltage on the nic port from 1.8.v to 3.3v.   Could be the issue.    Seems to not freeze longer if no DE is up that's for sure.

Got alarm working with lima driver (not llvmpipe) on both KDE Plasma and LXDE...but the freezes make them unusable.  I did nothing special with Arch arm to get the DE's up but use pacman and stable repos.

I'll try armbian and fedora next . If I cant find a non freezing OS I'll ebay this pos and leave arm alone.  Not worth the frustration.

I've got 4 of these Rock64s now...

One runs flawlessly. I hammer it to 100% CPU, max ram with some very intensive cryptographic toys and it never flinches. It's rock solid. No pun intended. I can't make it stutter no matter what I do. I absolutely flog it and it never hesitates. It impressed me so much I bought more.

The other 3 I bought won't even turn on. I've got two of the power supplies provided by the manufacturer, and also a nice Meanwell 5v supply capable of waaay more than 3A. Volt meter shows 5.0 dead on. I adjusted to 5.1, no effect. These 3 are just bricks right out of the box. No support. Completely ignored.

ArchLinux Arm. Armbian. Manjaro ARM. Nothing works. DOA.
Away
