I tried openSUSE-Tumbleweed-ARM-XFCE-chromebook.armv7l-2017.07.22-Build1.1 recently, but it just beeps and kicks me back to the boot screen immediately. No messages on screen, partition resizing, etc.
Any hints? Some cgpt magic I could try from ChromeOS perhaps?
You can try installing upstream u-boot following the chainload steps deteailed in several places on the interwebs - eg here http://chrodyssey.blogspot.cz/2015/04/the-bootloader-chained.html
The current u-boot supports display on Snow but the EFI GOP emulation (which the Tumbleweed image would use if it booted) is broken.
It probably does not boot because the loader is missing or not marked as bootable or you did not enable USB boot on the chromebook.
The developer mode on current versions of ChromeOS has more features than it used to but is also more flaky - it seems services tend to stop working randomly and currently I Cannot boot at all after the devmode installation fell apart.
thanks to both of you (Michal and Misha) for your answers, nice to hear that you didn't give up on Snow, even since it is no longer available for purchase.
I partly revived my chromebook snow and i was able to test current Tumbleweed image openSUSE-Tumbleweed-ARM-JeOS-chromebook.armv7l-2017.08.13-Build1.6.raw.xz I found that factory U-Boot for some reason don't like our chainloading U-BOOT partition with message:
GptNextKernelEntry looking at new prio partition 1 GptNextKernelEntry s1 t5 p10 GptNextKernelEntry likes partition 1 Found kernel entry at 2048 size 409604 Not a valid verified boot key block. Verifying key block signature failed. Not a valid verified boot key block. Verifying key block hash failed. Marking kernel as invalid. GptNextKernelEntry looking at new prio partition 1 GptNextKernelEntry s1 t5 p10 GptNextKernelEntry no more kernels
i will try to investigate further why this happen. [...]
i tried openSUSE-Tumbleweed-ARM-JeOS-chromebook.armv7l-2017.10.02-Build1.1 today and still no luck. Did you dig into this already? I'm not skilled enough to be helpful in this stage, i'm afraid...
Guillaume fixed chromebook snow images you can try current TW build http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/ARM:/Factory:/Contrib:/Chro... It boots fine here, i only expirienced hard freeze on first boot which chanhes partition setup, here is fault output to serial uart http://paste.opensuse.org/98361543 If it wont reboot for too long on first boot you probably also caught this fault just reboot by power key, second boot is fine.
