The process of burning the image into a SD or EMMC card should be the same as with other images and is well documented in other places so I will not write about that. Besides that, the image doesn't boots from petitboot you will need to turn it off and boot directly from emmc or sdcard. The SD card should take priority over eMMc in the boot process if inserted, unless Android is installed on the eMMc, in which case the eMMc will have priority over the SD card.
Don't forget to change the default password for added security.
After booting into the system you will want to resize the partition since this process isn't done automatically at boot. Instead gparted is included on the image.
Note: SuperKey is also known as WinKey
SuperKey + ato open the applications menu.
gpartedand press enter.
- Follow the instructions on the image below.
After resizing the partition there is an issue I wasn't able to fully fix at the image generation step, which is the system locale setup. So to get proper characters rendered on the terminal:
SuperKey + tto drop down the terminal
sudo locale-genand press enter
sudo localectl set-locale en_US.UTF-8
- Reboot or restart Lightdm
For details on what tested applications support GPU Hardware Acceleration check the Archlinux: X GPU Acceleration Guide, If you test more OpenGL applications that work with GL4ES let me know to update the list.
Next step will be creating a ready to use GNOME image with Wayland Hardware Acceleration, which shouldn't be hard now do to the modular nature of the Image Generator Script, everybody is welcome to improve the Generator like adding more Odroid Boards and Desktop Environments.
