yesterday I finally got my 14'' Pinebook .
There is Ubuntu 16.04 MATE as a default OS, but I would like to use
openSUSE TW on it of course.
So, I found raw.xz XFCE-image for aarch64  and used this command
"to burn" image on the microSD card:
# unxz -c openSUSE-Tumbleweed-ARM-XFCE-efi.aarch64-2017.06.10-Build2.3.raw.xz
| sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblk1p
Pinebook tried to boot from microSD card, but... it seems that there
is something wrong with bootloader.
Here  I found this command:
# xzcat openSUSE-Tumbleweed-ARM-XFCE-efi.aarch64-2017.06.10-Build2.3.raw.xz
| dd bs=4M of=/dev/ mmcblk1p oflag=sync
Exactly the same... image is there, echo $? tells 0, but pinebook ignore it.
Image on microSD card is marked as a bootable. I checked it with parted(8).
I asked Google and it showed me this . This is HOWTO for fedora 21
on Cubietruck, but there is one interesting thing: step (4) Write
U-Boot to Media.
Do we also need to install bootloader extra? Because, as I said, for
me it seems like a bootloader problem. If yes, where is this script or
documentation about it?
Also I would ask about rootfs-images. Do we have some
information/HOWTOs about these?
