A true mainline Linux Kernel for the Pinebook Pro
In these days, I'm running Manjaro off a slow micro SD card ... and all my problems are gone. I have an uptime of 7 days and counting. I would prefer Debian running on a 5.4 kernel, though.

When I read here about CONFIG_COMPAT a few days ago, I booted a 5.4 kernel with that option as well. As you observed, the screen remained black. I could not ping the Pinebook Pro. Even if video is not set up, the laptp should be pingable and ssh-able, shouldn't it? Did you try that?

What will you do with debootstrap? Can't you ssh into your Pinebook Pro and load various video drivers (and eventually load one in /etc/modprobe of whatever it's called)?
