To make use of the new install method for Odroid N2/N2+, the Pinebook Pro and Raspberry PI, you can download the Cassini ISO over here, to start the first of our renewed and easy-to-use two-step installation method.

Step one

Just fire up the ISO on an x86_64 machine, stick in an SD card or connect an SSD designated for your ARM device to the machine, then with a click on the ARM install button, the terminal will open and it will prepare the base install in a couple of easy to follow steps by selecting the right device and partitioning the card/SSD. After those steps, it will start downloading a 1.5 GB image and completes the base install on the storage device.

Step two

After the first step is completed, the designated ARM storage can be added to the ARM device to perform the second and final step.

An Openbox Live environment with a modified Welcome app that gives the options to edit the mirrors, install the official DEs and install the community editions, just like the regular ISO provides for x86_64 systems.

The main difference is that the ARM Calamares options only concentrate on location and keyboard selection, the DE/WM options and configuring user /computer name and password, the base install has already been done by the first step.

After installing the chosen DE/WM, Calamares will be wiped off the storage device during that process.

For Advanced Users:

Advanced users who don’t want to use the above-mentioned Step 1, which uses the ISO, can run the base install script by cloning this git repo instead and following the instructions there:

Note that running this script requires an Arch Linux based x86_64 or aarch64 system.

Other ARM devices

The existing semi-automated script is still available for other non-supported devices. We did simplify that process too by making it a two-step install as well, with the base install for the Pine 64 and the Rock64 completed by the EndeavourOS install. The Mac M1 EndeavourOS install on Parallels instruction, still works, as well as the headless server installation.

The Cassini release

The live ARM environment ships with:

  • Calamares 3.3.0-alpha3
  • Firefox 108.0.1-1
  • Linux kernel 6.0.12.arch1-1
  • Mesa 22.3.1-1
  • Xorg-Server 21.1.5-1
  • Grub 2:2.06.r403.g7259d55ff-1

Features and improvements on the ARM install

  • EndeavourOS Arm now supports Pinebook Pro.
  • New linux-eos-arm kernel with amdgpu introduced for more generic Arm device support including pinebook pro.
  • linux-eos-arm ships with amdgpu module prebuilt for supporting devices like Phytiuim D2000.
  • Raspberry Pi Imager/dd compatible images available for download. Improves accessibility of arm i.e. users from any OS can flash eos-arm to their arm SBC
  • Improved headless server script.
  • Odroid N2+: vulkan-panfrost and vulkan-mesa-layers installed to reduce artifacts on plasma x11 sessions and improve overall graphics performance and stability.

From now on the Pinebook Pro is officially supported by us.

For hardware and driver support for Pinebook Pro we ship the following packages:

  • linux-eos-arm
  • libdrm-pinebookpro
  • pinebookpro-audio
  • pinebookpro-post-install
  • ap6256-firmware
  • towboot-pinebook-pro

We’ve leveraged existing work and PKGBUIDs of both Manjaro ARM and archlinuxarm-pbp projects to create our Pinebook Pro images and would like to thank them for their continuing work in supporting PineBook Pro for Arch Linux ARM platform.
