    Phoronix: ASUS Pushes Out TinkerOS 2.0.8 With Many Updates To Its Debian Linux Image

    For those with an ASUS Tinker Board, the Debian-based TinkerOS has an updated operating system release...

    I don't want any board-specific distribution such as Raspian or TinkerOS.
    I want them to mainline it and push patches upstreams so I can run a ordinary distribution such as Debian or Ubuntu Core.

      You can run Debian and Ubuntu with the mainline kernel on it.

      That being said both of the Tinkerboards I have are unstable with heavy workloads unless I underclock them no matter which OS I use.

        Its quite easy to do so, I can run an unmodified kernel and userspace on my Firefly RK3288 (similar to Tinkerboard). Whats complicated is the bootloader and this does not work out of the box with normal distros, and wont support automatic kernel updates.
        Such special distros typically come with some blobs like GPU drivers and specialised compilations.

          ASUS Tinkerboards run very hot and get unstable at load due to the heat propagating into the board from that Rockchip CPU. That is probably why underclocking them works better.

          See if you can get a better heatsink or get more air flow over it.

          I literally burned my finger when I inadvertently picked up a Tinkerboard after running some tests on it outside the case thinking it was a typical RaspPi.

          Mine was hanging as well until I put a small fan next to it and it worked for that particular test. Just a suggestion.
