The device has been tested to work without any known issues or limitations, please file a bug in the armbian tracker if you encounter any.


Linux 6.1.X introduced regression in mesa causing DRM_IOCTL_MODE_CREATE_DUMB failed: Cannot allocate memory resulting in various rendering issues and even failure to perform first installation, see mesa/mesa#8198 for tracking.

The issue has been addressed in mesa/mesa/commit/c426e5677f36c3b0b8e8ea199ed4f2c7fad06d47
and evidently shipped in Linux 6.2.X.

Merge request armbian/os#45 was submitted to use edge kernel to workaround this issue, may introduce issues with armbian-firmware causing display to not work as cause it not yet fully understood, if that happens utilize the debuging cable and invoke:

$ picocom /dev/ttyUSB0 -b BAUM # Opens serial console on the laptop

The BAUM is by default 115200 as specified in https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/main/config/boards/olimex-teres-a64.conf or your SERIALCON, if you specified it in your installation, note that BAUM beyond 115200 is not recommended.

To install armbian-config (if it’s not installed already) and update the firmware, the display should then work again after reboot.

If you encounter this issue, then please inform @kreyren about it.

We provide a selection of images that fits hardware best. If you need different image - use build framework and make whatever you need. Build framework relies on Debian and Ubuntu packages - you can build any combination - stable, old stable or rolling release.
Make sure you have a good & reliable boot media (SD card / USB key) and a proper power supply. Archives can be flashed with Etcher (all OS) directly. Insert the SD card into the slot, connect a cable to your network if possible or a display and power your board. (First) boot (with DHCP) takes a bit longer.
Armbian images and kernels can be made from scratch. Supported environment for build framework is any any X64 based Linux distribution. You can re-make live bootable image or just a kernel+dtb(hardware configuration) package which you transfer to your image and install with: dpkg -i linux-image-[branch]-family.deb linux-dtb-[branch]-family.deb. In that process you can enforce many customisation.

Rolling releases are suitable for Linux enthusiasts who want cutting edge packages and have the skills to fix damage that a bad update might cause. If you want stability in a production environment or low headaches as a novice user, skip rolling releases. They are only at, build and ship, Debian testing / Arch / Manjaro / Suse Tumbleweed / Kali / Gentoo support quality level!
