    Fuck, that's annoying. Each time I reboot it just shuts down. I might do a clean build and try again though.

    I thought that it could cause a panic of some sort when rebooting, I don't know x)

    Hey, is it possible to connect bluetooth speakers? Because the speakers are not working yet, that would be a possibility or not?

    No, without a working sound driver you won't get sound out of any device.

    Code:
    $ tar xvf ArchLinuxARM-aarch64-latest.tar.gz -C /mounting/point/of/ext4/partition && sync
    $ cp ArchLinuxARM-aarch64-latest.tar.gz /mounting/point/of/ext4/partition/root && sync
    
    is line 2 really needed? what is the point of having a copy of the compressed files on the sd card with all the uncompressed files?

    That's great but to my understanding.. What works and what doesn't to me isn't worthy.

    Of course you can do that. Just use bluetoothctl (install it if you don't have it already) the same way as described in lakka's faq : https://lakka-switch.github.io/documentation/faq.html (How do I setup Bluetooth Audio)

    You don't need to do this through SSH if you have a working input method already, as you already have access to a terminal on regular linux distros. ;)

    Is there a pre-compiled Linux distro with Vulkan that I can just copy to my Sd card and boot?

    Also has there been progress on speaker sound in the last 1.5 years, or still only Bluetooth sound?
