Hi,

Our current image will not work with the LTS version, due to different ARM chip used.

We'd need to create a separate image that supports this device, unfortunately, we don't have access to one at the moment.

However, you can create a DietPi install on the system using our PREP script:
- Download a Ayufan's SoPine Debian Stretch minimal image from http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/PINE_A ... .2F_SOPINE, eg: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/linux- ... 118.img.xz
- Write the image, load up the device
- Run DietPi PREP: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -280771944
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.

Typo? Did you mean 'RAM chip'?

Hört mal, Herr Thomas Kaiser, hast du Langeweile?
Oder leidest du an Unterbeschäftigung?
Oder versuchst du dich nun als Forentroll?

Ist bei armbian oder OMV nix mehr los?
Ist dort keiner mehr den du nerven kannst?
Wir brauchen dich hier nicht.
Geh' doch bitte jemand anderen auf den Sack.

><((((*>
DNFTT

Oder suchst du Streit?
Das machst du dann aber bitte auch woanders und nicht hier.

Danke für Dein Verständnis.



Und Tschüss ...

R18 != A64, different ARM chip.

R18 and A64 are the same chip, it's just different business units and different markings. The boards need different bootloaders due to different DRAM type, that's why SoPine (A64 with LPDDDR3) and PineLTS (R18 with LPDDR3) work with the same base image (it's really just the bootloader that contains DRAM initialization code) but not with those for Pine64 (A64 with DDR3)
