@chastech Your script and minimal install image works good. The Sakaka kernel needs a script for the installed OS. The Raspbian people should use the arm64 package you created with new raspbian features. It just works. I originally used PINN but I prefer freedom setting up the image on sdcard and doing modifications.
I have been intending to make a script similar to rpi-update for updating the 64-bit kernel, which I also have realised is out of date on my latest scripts and I will update to the latest when I have time.

As for Raspbian features, I'm not so sure. My aim for Debian64Pi is for it to be as close to stock Debian as possible with few modifications. If you look at Ubuntu MATE 16.04 for the RPi, for example, it has a lot of Raspberry Pi software which can be useful for some but can also ruin the authentic experience of an OS like Ubuntu or Debian.

If there is enough demand I will consider releasing a special image with Raspbian apps and stuff in. For now, if you want the functionality so badly, you can always edit the script yourself to create an image with this stuff. The script you should be looking at is stage2 if you want to go ahead and do this, as this is where most of the OS setting up is done.

Hi,
I installed this Debian on my rpi3 but I can't figure how to mount a usb key.
Can I log in root? The debian user don't have the permission

Sure. To get access, just run from the debian user:

Code: Select all

sudo passwd root
Then choose a password and login ;)

I have been experimenting with this script and have managed to get it to run Ubuntu, including GNOME. Learn more here: viewtopic.php?f=131&t=268815&p=1631334#p1631334

I already tried that but I got an error. I will try to flash my sdcard again

I got the same problem with new image: sudo: unable to resolve host debian-rp64 temporary failure in name resolution

I checked my /etc/hosts and /etc/hotname vile and they seems ok for me.
