Pi Desktop and Tinker board
#1
Hi,
I got this for a RPi but I thought I could use it with the tinkerboard
https://www.element14.com/community/docs...desktop-pc

I managed to configure the "usb" boot by changing the root path on the config file. 
However, I've a few issues:
Sometimes, randomly, it won't boot. Some random messages on the screen that I don't understand (not a linux expert here). I think it has to do with the real time clock on the board, because when I removed the battery, it booted fine.
Also, the kit comes with a config file, created for raspbian. It's used to control the power button, real time clock, and not sure if anything else. I'm wondering if anyone has modified this file to work with TinkerOS?
thanks,

I've never used let alone seen such a device. However, I'd guess you have two separate problems, a) the config file probably needs to be modified and the power source is probably insufficient ( I am assuming ther tinkerboard gets the power from the device).
