Manjaro-ARM 18.07 released!



Do you know which kernel it would be running?
Special asus kernel or a default armv7h/aarch64 kernel?

From what I can find it’s using linux-veyron.

If I do create some images, would you be willing to test them?

I might look into this, as it would only need a kernel, another uboot and the xorg drivers.


I don’t have it (yet). I was trying to decide between buying it, or the Odroid-C2.
If I get it I’ll let you know.


The Odroid C2 is a great board though. :slight_smile:


Linux 4.4 LTS

“ASUS offers official operating system images of the Tinker Board for Android and Debian while other unofficial images do exist. For my testing I was using the Tinker Board OS image for Debian 9.0, which appears to be produced by Linaro and was making use of the Linux 4.4 LTS kernel, LXDE desktop environment, Mesa 13.0.6, and GCC 6.3.0.”

“The stock Debian 9.0 image for the Tinker Board is quite capable”…


We are based on Arch Linux ARM, which has a 3.14 kernel that’s suppose to work.

But I did find this one which appears to be a 4.4 kernel.

Could you host it on a EU located server?

SSL certificate also mismatch, goes to your blog.


What do you mean?

The download links are now hosted on Which has a bunch of mirrors in the EU.

The site does not currently have an SSL cert.


I see.

Going to try it on my Pi 3 B+.

Everything else with a GUI other then raspbian on the Pi’s runs kind of sluggish. Without a GUI most of the distro’s run okay.

Is there anything in particular you would like me and others to focus on? Any problem areas?


Not that I know of. But if you find anything related to a Manjaro-ARM package or a setup problem, let us know in the Bug Reports forum section. :slight_smile:


That is intriguing. Where can I find the details and try these tools ?


They can be installed from this repo.

Simply add the repo and run:
sudo pacman -Syy manjaro-strit-keyring && sudo pacman -S manjaro-arm-tools

This should install all the dependencies you need.
Please follow the how to in the README on that link. :slight_smile:


I understood correctly that this build system is intended for PC ArchLinux\Manjaro distributions ?


Yes. It’s only gonna run on Manjaro 64-bit right now.
Since it depends on manjaro-tools-base.


Ok. I’m newbie to Manjaro. I’m should try. :slight_smile:


You should know, that manjaro-arm-tools is still not as mature as manjaro-tools.
It can mess up the system, if not used correctly. :slight_smile:

Also, when PGP key errors happen (and they will), just let it finish and run the command again.
The reason is that it is checking the -any packages in your cache and finds the keys don’t match the ones from ARM. Running it again will redownload the packages from ARM and they will now match.


I’m not afraid of destruction, I’ll run in VirtualBox (just like I do all Armbian Libreelec builds etc). :slight_smile:


I’m not talking about the resulting images.
I’m talking about the commands you run on your system. :slight_smile:


Yes, I wrote about cross-compiling and building the image. Earlier I was collecting ArchLinux images for the Amlogic platform manually, I lacked the system of building the finished image (I already have all the components for this). I’ll go try make, if i’m have any questions, I’ll bother you with them … :slight_smile:


This builds Manjaro-ARM images. Not Arch Linux ARM images. :slight_smile:
