Me too. Wondering if any of the other 'M' series nano distros will work?

The M-3 distro will not boot from the sd card. I don't have the emmc module to test the NanoPC T4 image :(

The NEO4, M4 and T4 are all pretty much variants on the same hardware. What I did for my NEO4 was to flash with the latest Armbian image and then use the DietPi prep script to build the system from there. A word of caution though as I had to use the DEV branch of the prep script to get a working image.

Jep, for now, go with e.g. the ARMbian image (or any other official or 3rd party Debian-based image) and use our preparation script to turn it into DietPi: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/1285

Is this one going to have GPU features working (if done by the script OR if we get a proper image)? This board looks great value and power and would be great for DietPi and also to use as a base for RetroPie.

If I see DietPi on it, then I will probably order 2-3 boards....

This depends on the base image. E.g. ARMbian states to have GPU acceleration: https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-m4/

Just for reference I link the GitHub request here: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/2399

Any movement on this? I really want to buy a few of these boards and run dietpi if it's fully supported.
