  1. Nope, I do like Debian, but the laptop I got is very specific (Asus) and it looks like the only supported distros are Arch based. Thanks a lot @hexdumpfor this detailed workaround. I could go the arm laptop/chromebook route, of course. Most of my use will be web surfing and using my x86 Linux laptop through vnc, so I don't need a powerful laptop. I tried to buy the PineBook Pro a long time ago, at the very worst moment (just when it disappeared from the store in fact). It never came back.
  2. I got the laptop yesterday, and it's way too specific to install Armbian on it (Asus). So I'll go with Manjaro on this one. But... I think I will have to buy a laptop for home in the coming months, so if I don't go the arm way (Lenovo ThinkPad anyone?), I would love to have my daily driver laptop running Armbian.
  3. Got it. So I could totally install another distro with Grub, and then switch to Armbian. 🤔 interesting.
  4. Ok, thanks. That won't work for me as I have to keep Windows working, and it's a laptop with no more room for any other disk. But if I can afford another laptop, I will run only Armbian on it.
  5. Hi there, I have too many SBCs running Armbian with very recent kernels (even two Raspberry Pi 3B), and I love the consistency of my herd. I will change job next month, and I will at last be able to have a Linux machine as my daily driver... The thing is, I will need Windows too for video editing so that I need to keep it available when needed. I was thinking of Manjaro or Linux Mint for the freshness of their kernels (as the laptop hardware is pretty recent), but I gave a try yesterday at Armbian on x86_64, and it went almost well. I did not go as well as @NicoD's attempt in his latest video, but it is encouraging anyhow. So... Is there anything like "write to NAND" for X86? How could one have a multiboot with Armbian? Thanks.
  6. What about hardware encoding with mainline? Is it possible now?
  7. I do love the XU4, but it only sports 2GB of RAM.
  8. Today, I discovered the Compulab Utilite Pro which is up to 4GB ram, but only Cortex A9 and no real sturdy storage solution. I also found the AM5718 SBC which seems to have almost everything on the paper (Texas Instruments Sitara AM5728 dual-core ARM Cortex-A15, 1.5GHz NEON SIMD and VFPv4mm, Sata, 4GB Ram). Yes, only two cores, bummer! And one can't buy it just like that, there is no store whatsoever. From the same vendor, there is also the SBC-iMX6 with NXP (Freescale) i.MX6 Plus quad-core ARM Cortex-A9, 1GHz NEON SIMD and VFPv3, up to 4GB of RAM and Sata. Yes, only Cortex-A9, and no way to easily buy it either. But that's a good candidate anyway (until I get the real price I suppose).
  9. Instead of an A17 or A9 Cortex, there also is A15, like the Jetson TK1. Sata, quad core, but only 2GB of ram. I will keep on searching.

    Did you check the power supply, the cable and the SDCard?
  11. Thank you, I'm already using one as my `aarch64` gitlab runner.
  12. The kernel got correctly updated tonight. Welcome to Armbian 22.02.1 Focal with bleeding edge Linux 5.16.10-bcm2711 Docker now works. Thanks a lot for your work.
  13. You're right. It's supposed to go on a mainboard with various interfaces, but there is no USB-3 nor mSata nor M.2. Juste mPCIE for LTE modules.
