I used an earlier Fedora release on Banana pro (after first using
Fedora combined with a different kernel). It worked ok, but took a
bit of time for the Arm image to support Banana pro.
a) Yes, but I can't specify Rock64 as --target parameter.
"A number of Pine64 boards are supported, but you might use as a bass to get something for rock64" Can You explain me how? Is it possibile without manual recompilation, etc...? (see why in b) and c) )
There was a message earlier on the list that support had been added for rock 64. Thus you might be able to take the configuration for Pine64 and modify that for Rock 64, though can also wait. After installing the arm image installer, as indicated at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/ARM/Installation in a terminal I can type
to get a listing of supported boards. Typing
gives settings for Pinebook, which are
# write uboot
echo "= Writing sunxi-spl.bin for $TARGET ...."
dd if=$PREFIX/usr/share/uboot/$TARGET/sunxi-spl.bin of=$MEDIA bs=8k seek=1; sync
echo "= Writing u-boot FIT image for $TARGET ...."
dd if=$PREFIX/usr/share/uboot/$TARGET/u-boot.itb of=$MEDIA bs=8k seek=5; sync; sleep 5
# set console for allwinner
The commands for pine_h64, pine64_plus and pine64-lts are the
same, so you might try these for your Rock 64.
b) Yes, an Armbian kernel....but I'd like to use a 'standard' kernel.
Noted. Thanks for using and reporting where work is still required. Sorry cannot be much more help at present.
c) Yes, is possibile, but i still prefer a community delivered rpm (and maintained).
Thanks again for Your support.

Hi Benson,Yes, i've successfully installed CentOs 7, take a look at this link https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/ROCK64_Software_Release#CentOS-7_Community_Build_Image_.5BmicroSD_Boot.5D
But CentOs 7 does not support PHP 7x for aarch64: i need to install nextcloud.... and PHP 7+ is required.
So, i've tried CentOs 8 stream too...but no luck....
Fedora 31 does support Rock64, as release notes says....so the question is simple: how to install Fedora 31 on rock64?
Should be simple, in theory.....
a) If using a Fedora laptop/desktop, have you tried the ARM image installer:
A number of Pine64 boards are supported, but you might use as a bass to get something for rock64
b) The CentOS7 version you are using seems to use a kernel from Armbian. Maybe something similar (ARMRHEL) is needed for RHEL based distributions? At the moment the contributions seem to be haphazard, and driven by immediate needs rather than a long term vision. Perhaps an ARM roadmap for RHEL would be helpful in organizing development?
c) I have complied PHP 7 from source using GNU compilers. This was straight forward, so might be the way to go if you only need Nextcloud and do not need to many PHP extensions. When you need to update, just copy over the data directory in your Nextcloud installation.

Have you tried any other linux distributions (ideally rpm based)?
