I have one and had a Guix System install on it, but it's been some
months since I've booted it. There's another bug I need to test with it,
so I'll dig it out of the closet sometime soon so I can poke at the
configuration and check the latest status...

The hardest thing was always specifying all the right initrd modules in
the operating system configuration to use "linux-libre", especially as
the modules needed sometimes change between kernel versions. I've
usually had more luck with "linux-libre-arm-generic" which usually works
fine for headless systems and has more things configured as builtins.

live well,
