i get an error there when trying to download :
404 Not Found
nginx/1.16.0
Sorry... Now it's OK

I could download it and create the booting card.
It does not reconize my TV (or vice versa), same
as Manjaro. On another (older) TV it does boot
and displays some messages and stalls.. What then ?
Shall I type in some "login" and "password ?
Which ?
This image does not have a desktop environment and only contains a basic archlinux system. The default user root password is root.If you want to install a desktop environment, xfce is a good choice for raspberry pi.

it's up to you, chromium or firefox all right. Only need `pacman -S chromium` or `pacman -S firefox`.

I solved the problem with th 2nd card.
The files had zero bytes. I don't know how that happened.
I could delete them, insert the card into th PC and copy
the files again and it worked.
It's so far the only way that I found to run stockfish-chess on a pi with 1900kn/s
instead of the 1070kn/s with raspbian.
But I need another TV for it.

I got it working now on another TV.
Manjaro did not recognize the one TV correctly, (or vice versa) , same as with the
pi4B-raspbian booting cards.
However there I could solve it by booting from the pi3 and then switching the HDMI cable
to the pi4. This does not work with Manjaro. (no signal)
I didn't like all the password things - I mean, it's my little pi, noone else is using it, why do I
need passwords and complicated permissions ?
Then came the positive surprise : cfish [chess] compiled in ubuntu on the Odroid-N2 ran with 1850kn/s !
On the Odroid-N2 it had 2300kn/s, the default raspbian stockfish only gets 1050kn/s,
the optimized cfish-r3 compile from raspbian had 1300kn/s in raspbian but didn't run in Manjaro.
Then I did exactly the same thing again with another card but cfish didn't run.
I Copied cfish-o1 to the manjaro-card on a Llnux-PC
http://magictour.free.fr/cfish-o1
setoption name threads value 4
go infinite
...
quit

http://magictour.free.fr/cfish-r3

it's tedius ... they should sell the Manjaro-pi4B cards, installed with default parameters without passwords

Re: Arch Linux ARM on Raspberry Pi 4 - rpi-update

How do we update the firmware on an Arch Linux ARM sdcard? I tried the tutorial at the link below that corrupted two sdcards and was told there that those instructions "are more than five years out of date. They won't work with any of the new Raspberry Pis." Then the post was locked. There were no additional instructions or suggestions from this forum.

Ask the developers for assistance on their forum:

The RPF / RPT only support Raspbian Operating System.

The answer to the `rpi-update` for ALARM is to use `pacman -Syu` because it also updates the firmware, unlike Raspbian. The post at the link below should be deleted or hidden because it is more misinformation on this forum and corrupts sdcard builds.
