Hi guys,
I followed this guide with no results, no booting:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Orange_Pi

I've compiled the u-boot replacing "orangepi_pc2_defconfig" with "orangepi_lite2_defconfig" and I replaced the dtb flag in boot.cmd also.

Can someone help me? Thank you.
Cheers!

H6 based Orange is something completely different.

Use Armbian. https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-lite-2/ or wait few more months.

Build script:

To explain this a little further:
The mentioned tutorial from Arch Linux is for the OrangePi One board which featuring the Allwinner H3 SoC and armhf architecture.
You have an OrangePi Lite2 which is built around the Allwinner H6 SoC (and ARM64) architecture and which is as stated completely different.

The easiest method to get a halfway stable running OS on this board is Armbian for the moment.

@igorpec
I've been using Armbian for a long time and I'm not satisfied! It works pretty badly.

@Werner
Scroll down! There is a tutorial for "Orange Pi PC2"!

I believe it is quite simple to start Arch Linux or other distributions, unfortunately I don't have much "computer skills". I'm just asking for help to start Arch and not an opinion on which distro to choose.

Cheers!
