This board is really awesome.
Kernel features status and overview
Fully supported in Fedora 99
Bootloader/firmware status and overview
Uses U-Boot to boot EXTLinux to boot GRUB to boot LILO... or something like that.
If A=B and B=C, then A=C except where void or prohibited by law
The pinebook will boot from micro-SD (up to 256G), but not from USB. An updated image is needed to avoid a bug where the display gets turned off, leaving you "blind". I updated the image by booting on a Raspberry Pi3, installing dracut-config-generic (to generate a multi-system initrd), and then updating.
Important missing support
- The internal wifi is not yet supported. You will need a USB wifi dongle supported by Fedora.
- The battery monitor is supported in /sys/class/power_supply/axp20x-battery, but many battery monitor apps like gkrellm do not know to look there
- suspend works by closing the laptop lid with an EDIMax wifi dongle. An ASUS dongle caused a hung driver (requiring reboot) on resume from suspend
