Manjaro ARM for Pinebook

"Exclamation All you need to install Manjaro on the Pinebook

manjaro-arm-installer"

As mentioned by Schiff.

I tried, but failed. Two of the required dependencies are not in the distro nor are they available from the repository. That is on top of the audio issue that I cannot seem to solve.

Simple and fast solution is booting from sd and making from command line something like this:

dd if=/dev/whereversd of=/dev/whereeveremmc bs=1M

You need location on dev of your storage before.

Unfortunately my SD cards are all over 16GB (except for a C4 that has only booted Armbian) so this method was not possible for me. For anyone else in a similar situation, I was able to inistall Manjaro to the eMMC by booting from the SD, getting the .img.xz file onto the SD and then ran
Code:
xzcat /path/to/manjaro.img.xz | sudo dd of=/dev/emmcp1 bc=1M
I didn't have to extract the .img file, and it took only a few minutes.

Well, I just tried this (And failed, of course). I gathered the correct device names using Parted and use DD just like you described. It was working for a while, then ended with "16GB's copied" and such but also mentioned 'ran out of space on device' but I'm guessing this is to be expected with a simple block-for-block copy command. 

Upon trying to boot from the EMMC drive it will initially try to boot Manjaro (it used to be that ancient KDE Neon install, so something happened at least) but it halts and drops me into an emergency shell:

I don't know where or how to continue from here. 

The SD card used is 16GB's just like the internal EMMC (I was warned against using a larger source) but it seems they do differ in size by 0,1GB in favor of the SD card.

Have you tried using the xcat command I posted above? If the SD is bigger than the eMMC, it should work, and you'll be able to boot into the fresh install within minutes.

Color me intrigued. Did you guys do that especially for me? Heart 

On a serious note: What system does this use to install to EMMC? If it's still based on DD I might run into issues, the smallest SD I still have lying around is 16GB, and at that slightly larger (by .1 of a GB) than the internal EMMC, rendering my DD attempts useless.

I have not done so (yet) but if this recent addition to the installer is any good, I might not have to, so I'll try that first Smile.

Does GPU accelleration work in Manjaro KDE 19.06?

I've just found the Pinebook 11,6" 1080p OS table and it says "No?" (though it hasn't been updated since December 2018).

For KDE Neon the option says "Yes?", so I'm slightly confused.

I haven't booted mine up to check for updates over the weekend, but if this post is any indication (https://forum.manjaro.org/t/post-19-06-updates/92791) then we should start seeing video acceleration in 19.06. That is if Strit updated 19.06 to use kernel 5.1 or 5.2. Again, I cannot confirm this as my Pinebook is not with me, and the update to 19.06 still showed a modified 5.0 kernel in use on the Pinebook, but maybe someone else can chime in and give a more definite answer.

EDIT: Checked my Pinebook last night, Manjaro install reports using kernel 5.0.3 (I think, certainly 5.0.) If you compile a version of mainline kernel, lima, and lima-mesa, you should see some hardware acceleration.
