But that was never the intent.
The intent is to be as similar to manjaro-tools as possible, including placement of files.
What would that accomplish, that the regular linux-aarch64 package would not?
I’m only gonna add devices, that we actually have the resources to support. And adding “random” devices is not the way to do it.
Well, we already have our own resize-sd script which is doing that. We just need to maintain and test it with the newer builds.
Just got done installing this on my Raspberry Pi 3+. Works great, only problem I had was having a hard time finding user and password. I have tried all kinds of builds, and have tried compiling my own, for little success. Glad I tried this image, I was getting very tired of “emerging” on the Gentoo image.
This will improve the development environment and can be applied to the main tool (manjaro-tools).
The kernel 4.18 has a dtb part for some TV box models and there is no support for many hardware elements for this platform yet. The 3.14 kernel has a maximum dtb set (for almost all existing models). Also in 3.14 there is support for all elements of iron, which are used on the platform Amlogic S9xx (WiFi BT remote control, NAND, eMMC etc). For Odroid C2 you use a specialized kernel (3.14), why not use the most adapted kernel for a huge number of TV boxes ? The number of TV boxes on the AML platform for users is estimated in millions, this is the most mass platform, compared to which RPI has a significantly smaller release.
Now you have to run the partition extension script manually. Manjaro is positioned as a distribution for easy use by regular users. Therefore, it is logical that the partition extension occurs automatically when the system is first started. I propose to use those developments that are already well tested and have been used for a long time without any errors in the work on any device. IMHO the use of proven and free solutions is not plagiarism, it is a normal practice not to waste energy on what is already in the public domain. It is better to spend time on really necessary for the development of Manjaro questions.
