To make use of the new install method for Odroid N2/N2+ and Raspberry PI you can download the Artemis 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.

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, the base install for the Pinebook Pro, Pine 64 and the Rock64 completed by the EndeavourOS install. The Mac M1 EndeavourOS install on Parallels instruction, still works as the headless server installation.

The Artemis release

The live ARM environment ships with:

  • Calamares 3.2.61
  • Firefox 104.2-1
  • Linux kernel 5.18.1 for Odroid N2/N2+
  • Linux kernel LTS 5.15 for Raspberry PI
  • Mesa 22.1.7-1
  • Xorg-Server 21.1.4-1
  • grub 2:2.06.r322.gd9b4638c5-4

Features and improvements on the ARM install

Odroid N2/N2+

  • Added btrfs file system support in addition to ext4
  • Uses Linux 5.18 kernel from Archdroid. Thanks to Archdroid team!!
  • Improved performance for Odroid N2+ by enabling overclocking out of the box using Archdroid’s uboot
  • Enabled sound support and btrfs support by using a post-install package inspired by the Manjaro ARM team

Raspberry Pi

  • Updated config.txt
  • There was btrfs issue caused by including subvolid in fstab before. It caused difficulties in restoring snapshots. Now fstab has no btrfs subvolid. Thanks to Dalto for his help.

General

  • Lightdm now uses gtk-greeter instead of slick-greeter for Window Manager to give a more stable experience. It has a new custom theme.
  • ARM images are now compressed using zstd method to allow a fast decompression experience for the user
  • EOS Quickstart working again on ARM. Offers an easy selection of common and popular apps to get you started.
  • Sway login manager changed from ly to SDDM

Community editions improvement

  • ttf-nerd-fonts-symbols changed to ttf-nerd-fonts-symbols-2048-em due to upstream package changes.

Grub

  • Removed grub-tools (This will also be removed from the repos shortly after this release).
  • os-prober is no longer enabled for new installations (It is still installed by default).
  • The custom grub theme has been replaced with a background image.
  • Installation doesn’t use a random number for the bootloader-id anymore.
