Is there a document for this board anywhere that describes the rootfs build steps ? For myself, generating the actual rootfs is not that hard, but knowing which kernel modules are required, and where the system actually expect these files to be is kind of a mystery. Of course having a list of other required support files, and binaries would be helpful too.

EDIT:

I mean I know of Yocto, and have attempted to use Yocto in the past, and did not find that build system  very intuitive. But am fairly familiar with building images by hand using debootstrap, and manually copying over modules, kernel, etc. Is this not the prefered build method for this board ?

It may. 

I'd have to dig through the scripts there, and see what all is happening. As I do not like custom rootfs', and prefer to build my own rootfs' with as close to plain jane armhf as possible. Not knowing what whoever has put into a rootfs will  always bother me, so I tend to build my own using debootstrap, then add any necessary support files / modules etc manually.

Thanks for the link !

You know what bothers me about he TinkerBoard stock images, You *HAVE* to have an hdmi monitor connected ? Really ? This is not a Windows PC . . . Linux has this new fan-dangled "thing" known as openssh-server . . .

Sarcasm aside, seriously this board is an embedded Linux board, even if it does have limited I/O capabilities. As such it should come stock with openssh-server running on the images. Something for those of you who make images to consider.

Not understand, openssh-server should have been preloaded in image.
What actual problems happened with you?

Armbian with mainline kernel is available now, same limitations as typically seen with non-ASUS images, I haven't gotten wireless patched in yet, and it is so far 1080p.

Remember the Armbian image tty is on UART2. https://www.armbian.com/tinkerboard/

Armbian kernel 4.12 (dev kernel) now has Wifi support, for those interested.

Just added LUbuntu and FlintOS(chromeOS) to the list.

I haven't used them much past initial test boot though.
