Known issues

Legacy kernel images (all boards) (default branch)

  • Arm64 browsers (Firefox, Chromium, Iceweasel) may crash frequently. Armhf versions of these browsers should be used instead (Iceweasel and Firefox preinstalled in desktop images should be of the right architecture out of the box)
  • HDMI output supports only limited number of predefined resolutions
  • Hardware accelerated video decoding supports only limited number of video formats
  • Kernel lockups on boot may happen, no solution yet: https://github.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image/issues/51

Mainline kernel images (all boards) (next and dev branch)

Board: Pine64/Pine64+

  • Gigabit Ethernet performance: on some boards was confirmed as hardware issue, though the legacy kernel received a workaround that may help on some boards.
  • Gigabit Ethernet performance: setting TX/RX delays manually in /boot/armbianEnv may improve performance on some boards. Refer to this github issue for the details.

Quick start | Documentation

Preparation

Make sure you have a good & reliable SD card and a proper power supply. Archives can be uncompressed with 7-Zip on Windows, Keka on OS X and 7z on Linux (apt-get install p7zip-full). RAW images can be written with Etcher (all OS).

Boot

Insert SD card into a slot and power the board. (First) boot (with DHCP) takes up to 35 seconds with a class 10 SD Card and cheapest board.

Login

Login as root on HDMI / serial console or via SSH and use password 1234. You will be prompted to change this password at first login. Next you will be asked to create a normal user account that is sudo enabled (beware of default QWERTY keyboard settings at this stage).
