I just loaded v190531 on my Rock64 V3 board and it appears to work well, except that every time it boots, it uses a random MAC address.  Can anyone point me in the right direction to fix this?

Thanks.

If I'm currently running this Debian for the Pinebook Pro could one update to Debian 10 through the command line? Or do we need to wait till it's up on the Wiki? I see on the Debian 10 release it does support arm64 but not this chip specifically and don't know enough about each architecture to know if it would work. Thank you

If you check dmesg, you will find the MAC address randomization is done during booting.

I used this disk image since the one by ayufan wouldn't boot. It works fine and after a couple days I got everything set up the way I want, only to realize this is stuck at the same kernel version. Not only that, but but this appears to be running as armhf, instead of arm64. I'm really hesitant to just install the latest linux-image package because in my experience with other ARM systems, overriding a fixed kernel like that usually results in bricking the whole install.

I'm not using a GUI, so if upgrading the kernel means breaking the GPU drivers, that's fine - I don't care. Anyone know if I can safely upgrade the kernel, let alone convert my setup to arm64 (I realize doing that would involve replacing just about every single package; that's fine)?

i was able to update to the latest ayufan one with a workaround discussed here

on kernel 5.6 now, start from 0.9.16 arm64; update and upgrade using the procedures mentioned and it should get you there.

Funny - that solution seems pretty obvious.  I'd have likely done the same thing, if I didn't have the mrfixit disk image to try.  But I really don't want to start all over again reconfiguring everything.  At the very least, I'd like to use the disk image I currently have and just upgrade the kernel without bricking it.  If I'm stuck with armhf, that isn't such a big problem for me, because aside from some MySQL commands, I overall don't think I'll see any performance improvements.  In some cases, 64-bit is actually slower on ARM.
