Tinker Board S doesn't boot
#1
Hi,
The official Tinker OS and Android boots well both from emmc and microsd.
Other OS-s like Flint OS and Yocto gives me a black screen. Is it beacuse of a hardware difference between the original and S version?
I need a linux based OS with GPU enabled on the S.
Thanks

I guess you haven't search much.

You mean, connect an RS232 to see what goes wrong during boot, and then fix the OS image on my own?
Hopefully somebody here has done it already.

If then you done it, you could see what are the errors. There are developers that might understand such errors, if you have time to post them.

I'll do it, if these OS-es are compatible with Tinker Board S too. Are they Tinker Board only?

Well, what they publish about the OS should be proven to work. I summarily tried Elar System, Armbian, and Linaro (aka TinkerOS). I don't know about Yocto nor Flint.

The only things I'd say that most of them might use particular patches to arrange for a better result.

I'm telling this because mainlined kernel/u-boot doesn't exists, which I hope one day to happen, so one will be able to install any distro with the smallest limitation. Likely it happen with normal motherboards with their BIOS.
I used Archlinuxarm with a fair result. But no video acceleration and Realtek hardware are rather a nightmare at kernel.org .
