Manjaro ARM Preview1 for Rock Pi 4

Manjaro ARM Preview1 for Rock Pi 4!

The Manjaro ARM project is proud to anounce the first test release for the Rock Pi 4!

Download:
KDE

Features:

ROCK Pi 4 is a Rockchip RK3399 based SBC(Single Board Computer) by Radxa. It can run android or some Linux distributions. ROCK Pi 4 features a six core ARM processor, 64bit dual channel 3200Mb/s LPDDR4, up to 4K@60 HDMI, MIPI DSI, MIPI CSI, 3.5mm jack with mic, 802.11 ac WIFI, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Port, GbE LAN, 40-pin color expansion header, RTC. Also, ROCK Pi 4 supports USB PD and QC powering.

How to install:

Download the image/zip file from the download location. Verify that the download completed successfully.

After that, install Etcher (sudo pacman -S etcher if on Manjaro) and burn it to an SD or eMMC card (8 GB or larger).

Put the SD card into Rock Pi4's SD card slot or the eMMC on the main board, if you used eMMC, and boot it up. The Rock Pi 4 should recognize the SD/eMMC card as a bootable device and boot from it.

On the first boot, it will display an OEM type install. After you have made your choices it will reboot into your newly setup system.

Known Issues:
KDE

  • Favorites not set in menu.
  • No HW acceleration. (yet)
  • No Wifi/BT (probably need a kernel module)
  • No PCI-e/m.2 support.
  • No audio.

Why would you use fbdev?
What does it bring that modesetting (used now) does not?

Also, the correct fbdev package would be xf86-video-fbturbo-git.

Always seems to complain about UMP and thought there was little diff now.
Dunno really as xorg loads fb anyway but seems to stop earlier complaints, was just wondering about No HW acceleration

Yeah, that's because the mali driver is missing.
That will probably arrive with kernel 5.2 and panfrost.

Its me really still stuck in my old non KMS raspberry VC4 mode out of old bad habits.

Would compiling https://github.com/rockchip-linux/libmali with and use libmali-midgard-t86x-r14p0-fbdev.so
work?
[EDIT]
For now should I say. Needs the mali kernel module though, but is pretty snappy as it is.
Panfrost might be great but presuming they will undergo optimisation
