AltLinux for StarFive VisionFive V1

An early alpha version of the image with Altlinux. To start, download, burn the image to an SD card, connect to the device and turn on the power. The system will start automatically. This is a minimal console image.

Login: root
password: altlinux


Add image XFCE.
I pay attention, while the desktop is working very slowly.


Good news. To normalize the XFCE GUI, it is enough to create a file
with the following contents.
And after the reboot, the graphical shell will work at an acceptable speed. :slight_smile:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Default Device"
    Driver      "modesetting"
    Option      "AccelMethod"    "none"     ### "glamor" to enable 3D acceleration, "none" to disable.
Section "ServerFlags"
        Option  "AutoAddGPU" "off"
        Option "Debug" "dmabuf_capable"

You’re a machine, balbes! Keep up the great work!

Version 20220422. A specialized desktop version of the AltLinux Simply image (XFCE) has been added. It works with HDMI LAN WiFi analog audio via 3.5 jack.

The launch is very simple, download, burn to an SD card, connect to the device and turn on the power. At the first start of the system, the settings wizard starts, in which you need to select language, configure network settings, create user and set passwords, after completion (confirmation of all steps), the system automatically restarts and launches the graphical login screen. Please note, at the step of saving settings and the last step, the system can spend lot of time (it depends on the speed parameters of the SD card), this is normal behavior.

Version 20220526 kernel 5.18.0

jeos - This is a minimal system with a console interface. It can be used as a base for creating your own systems.

Those who wish can independently assemble their own version of images with different DE or minimal versions. The build works on the StarFive device itself in the mkimage-profiles build system. Details on how to use this system to build your images can be found at the link.
