Official Debian support!

The installer boots up fine etc. but later in the step with selecting the mirror - no matter what mirror you select - the installer refuses to continue because it can't find a kernel/modules that match the installer's kernel.

I tried using older partition.img.gz files but I didn't fine one that works. If anyone knows a workaround please share.

OK, having read through this thread and the one in the PBP section, has anyone got this to work yet?

I tried for my ROCKPro64 last night.
  • Could download firmware.rockpro64 fine
  • Could download partition.img fine
  • Could zcat mash them together fine
  • Could dd to an SD-card
  • Could boot the resulting SD-card fine
  • Could select various installer options (such as country, keyboard) fine
  • After selecting a mirror a whole lot of downloading action happened (as witnessed by activity on my router)
  • Then after 30 mins of flashing cursor in bottom left of screen I gave up.
I was anticipating a "no bootloader" problem on the resulting SD-card but never got that far!
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Started Bionic minimal - now "groovy", Openbox desktop for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb daily driver, dual boot via p-boot with Mobian/f2fs/Phosh on eMMC, Arch/f2fs/Phosh on SDcard
  • PinePhone v1.2a 2G/16Gb that needs USB board replaced
