Just a quick update on my progress here...

Unfortunately stopped very early on because I was unable to flash the Armbian u-boot; keep getting this error when attempting to flash:

ARMbian is not an option for our images any more: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -298337026

Thus we need to find another way.

Thanks for the heads up, guess I'll stick with ARMBian. Shame on EspressoBin for providing Ubuntu images instead of Debian :( .

Maybe once I've had some experience running this board under ARMbian for a while I'll dig deeper on what it would take to cross-compile a Debian image based on the kernel, buildroot environment, and bootloader that Espressobin does provide...

As there are some more cases, I tried and successfully installed DietPi on an Ubuntu image on VM: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/1557
It currently needs some hand work, and of course a VM is usually simpler than real hardware, but it is worth trying, if just Ubuntu images are available.
