Description

I would greatly like to see this happen. I cannot seem to make heads or tails of some of the wiki. Also, I don't have a computer with parabola on it at this moment to do the guide anyways. I am new to arm.

I am more or less wanting this done because of eoma68-a20. That is my main reason. Although libreboot also adds chromebook c201 if that interests you as well...

I wondered if you have a hidden guide/iso because I may end up receiving a beta board in the future.

To help test it. Thanks in advance.

Actually I think I put this in the wrong place...

Updated by oaken-source over 1 year ago

no, this is a perfectly good place for this issue. If you are going to receive an EOMA prototype board soon, I think we should collaborate closely on any issues that are coming up there, since a number of these boards are going to be running parabola.

I'm working on an install tarball now.

Alright, like an iso? or IDK?

I need to be able to burn an iso to a usb and put it in when I receive it.

Can you give me such a thing if possible + documentation/wiki if possible also? or instructions.

:)

But yeah, do what you can of that.

I adapted my trusted parabola-arm-imagebuilder to produce release tarballs, similar to the ones archlinuxarm offers:
https://github.com/oaken-source/parabola-arm-imagebuilder

In the next couple of days, I will upload the tarball somewhere, and add installation instructions to the wiki.

Is it true that the a20 cannot handle the linux-libre-lts kernel 4.9?

Luke seemed to say that 4.9 kernel had no support for it. I was wondering because, Parabola has an lts kernel option too. And Hyperbola another distro would probably use the 4.9 also.

oh and I almost forgot, thank you, I will receive it in around two weeks most likely.

ps, sorry for the hard turn, I just forgot to mention I was going to get the card in two weeks. :0

I don't know, we'll have to try and tackle problems as they appear :)

two weeks is plenty to finish writing up the installation instructions. the tarball is finished, that was the harder part.

Thank you, I look forward to seeing the instructions. :)

Also, It is good to even have a non graphical install at all. I wonder though, is there a guide to encrypt /home and /root or fully encrypted disks?

Let me know in the future if this can become possible. For the eoma68 laptop. Though its not crucial for a while. ;)

for a very long time I might add.

I am not sure if this will be happening, but for those who are recieving the 2.7.4 board, I ask that you leave this as an option. So that if they need it, it will be available...

The arm iso option I mean...

are you saying that the arm tarball release will not boot the EOMA cards?

No, I am saying that I am not sure if Luke intends to send me one. I will have to wait to see...

Although it seems unlikely. a bit disappointing, but yeah...

Still, leave the iso available just in case someone needs it or tarball if you prefer.

is there still any desire for a LiveISO - maybe the tarball is enough as a convenience

I would say there is still a desire. Although, it might not need to be had until eoma68-a20 is released.
