Mainline Debian Buster on RockPro64 ?
#6
Update: I now have the following combo running:
  • Official Debian Buster
  • Official kernel from unstable
  • Self-compiled mainline u-boot (2020.03)
=> not a single, unofficial patch.

The machine boots up fine and seems stable. I tried attaching a NVMe storage (without cooling) both over USB3 as well as via MiniPCIe. It worked in both cases, but performance was far lower than expected.

Update: Performance with SATA and NVMe is tolerable but it can be enhanced significantly by using a different DTB that enables PCIe gen2 mode (instead of gen1). However, older versions of the board probably require a hardware modification for this to work reliably as discussed here: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=8374
