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.
