Mainline Debian Buster on RockPro64 ?
#22
Great! Just remember that you can use the image to install the OS on most other "unofficially supported" SbCs as well if you use a different uboot. So if you have something to play already, I recommend starting with a familiar SbC first. Getting used to a new device can be challenging - e.g. the rockpro64 has this nasty issue of not booting with the TX serial pin attached and also has issues with sdcards, usb3 and some other stuff (at least on older kernels like the 5.6 series - I hope this got fixed in the newer ones).

If you encounter any strange behavior on the rockpro64 I suggest booting it from eMMC (if you bought the module) instead of the microSD card.
