New use case for my Pine64
#1
Nothing special but I wanted to set up Fedora Server on this Pine64 v2 from here.

https://getfedora.org/en/server/download/


This did not work so I downloaded and installed Armbian_20.02.1_Rock64_buster_current_5.4.20. The OS booted up and is working ok.

My question is - will this work just as well for some server type work? Initially I want to set up an email server and will require postfix and other dependecies to be in the repository.

Going back to Fedora, they have a raw image download. Can this be made to work on the Rock64?

Hi S265

Unfortunately, although stated as supported by the fedora arm-image-installer, Rock64 is not "officially" supported.

See this bug report:

Armbian will still work in the role as a small server. In fact, it can help you install several services/apps from Softy withing its armbian-config tool.

Ok thanks for that update.

Software support comes into play with server. I immediately ran into a problem trying to install Webmin on the Arm system.
Re Fedora. Recently updated to Release 32 on my Pine64 where it has been running for 24 months or so. It has been very good. Unfortunately it cannot be repeated on the Rock64. I see some users have been looking at usb boot, also some discussion on uboot. Not sure if that my be used in the future.

Armbian_20.02.1_Rock64_buster_current_5.4.20

Update: Armbian is working admirably on the Rock64. Very pleased with Webmin, which provides a gui for monitoring the hardware, and configuring server modules. In my case Postfix/Dovecot are working to manage all my incoming and outgoing IMAP email. Ymmv, but happy here.
