Trying to Install Manjaro-ARM-kde-plasma-pbpro-20.04
#1
Hello,

I had an older version of Manjaro-ARM-Xfce on my emmc. Had no trouble installing it to the emmc thanks to the
emmc-installers I found @ Manjaro. Now I wanted to do a clean install of Manjaro-ARM-kde-plasma-pbpro-20.04. I tried the Write-to-eMMC-version of it,
but the Pinebook simply refused to boot after inserting the sd card. (The on light was green but the display empty for a considerable period before I gave up). I decided that I might as well go the direct way and flashed Manjaro-ARM-kde-plasma-pbpro-20.04.img on the eMMC with the eMMC-USB-Connector and dd. 

After starting the pinebook on led goes green, but the display remains empty. How do I go from here? Shouldnt reflashing the eMMC turn back the clock and give me a clean
system? Should I try another image and possible another tool than dd to write the image to the eMMC. How long should the initial boot last, meaning how long do I have to wait 
with Manjaro KDE Plasma until something appears on the screen for the first time. Is 20.04 considered stable?

Yours sincerely
Stefan

Do you press Esc key to enter installer after boot?

Instructions are here https://forum.manjaro.org/t/manjaro-arm-...sed/133374

To use these images:

Download the eMMC Installer image of your choice.
Flash it to an SD card.
Boot the SD card on the device.
When the Manjaro logo has been present for about 15 seconds, press ESC (this is a bug, we know).
Follow the instructions on the screen.
