It worked without a hitch! That was easier than I thought. Of course, I remembered to update the fstab too. Thank you so much sndwvs.

added a new mirror:

ftp://mirrors.slackware.bg/slarm64/
http://mirrors.slackware.bg/slarm64/
https://mirrors.slackware.bg/slarm64/
rsync://mirrors.slackware.bg/slarm64/

rsync://slackware.uk/slarm64/ OR slackware.uk::slarm64/

rsync://dl.fail.pp.ua/slarm64/

Also, the modular series kde and x11 are built from the main script without any specific paths, and since the packages are listed in ChangeLog.txt
eg:
for where:
kde/k3b
for x11:
x/encodings

Trouble adding initramfs

Hey; first thanks for all your work on this.

I've got a rockpro64, and I'd like to set my root device to be an SSD attached via the USB 3.0 port. I think to do that I need to add an initramfs that includes the usb_storage and uas modules, but no matter what I do I get "rootfs image is not initramfs". Can you give me a quick HOWTO (I'm pretty familiar w/ U-Boot and everything)? I could probably figure it out myself, but I'm strongly resisting breaking out the serial cable (and removing the case, and messing up the thermal paste, and having to buy more thermal paste, and blah blah blah).

I propose a simple approach:
kernel on sdcard with subsequent switching to usb ssd.
leave only the /boot directory on the sdcard
for this you just need to specify in /boot/uEnv.txt
rootfstype=ext4
rootdev=/dev/sda1


i boot from nvme as root:
Code:
/dev/nvme0n1p1 on / type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime,errors=remount-ro)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
shm on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/mmcblk1p1 on /mnt/mmc type ext4 (rw,noatime,nodiratime,data=writeback,errors=remount-ro)
Yes, you do not need to get uas usb_storage wrapped in the initram
or build a kernel with these modules in the kernel

in order to use the initram you need to change to /boot/boot.cmd
booti ${kernel_addr_r} - ${fdt_addr_r}
on
booti ${kernel_addr_r} ${ramdisk_addr_r} ${fdt_addr_r}

added USB_STORAGE USB_UAS to the kernel

sndwvs , should I expect it will run at Pinebook1080?
Especially, I'm interested if the internal display works.

dreadbit,

This distribution works on any arm-v8 CPU.
To make money on Pinebook1080 (Allwinner A64), you need ayufan kernel or an official one, I have a given kernel, but under aarch64 it is not built. Аlso need a bootloader

slarm64 (aarch64 unofficial slackware)

Are there a lot of performance gains by using the 64bit version then the 32bit one?
