Now that much more people get to experiment with the RK1 module, curious to know if anyone tried to install flatcar linux on them if it works.

SBCs are different a bit from PCs - you cannot just "install" an OS on them, the images must be specifically prepared for a given board.

well they support raspberry pi so it's not only a PC thing https://www.flatcar.org/docs/latest/installing/bare-metal/raspberry-pi/

Whilst similar in some respects the RPi and RK1 also have some significant differences. I don't see a build of Flatcar for the RK1 so you'll have to wait to see if someone creates one, or create one yourself if you have those skills.

As I said, each SBC must have a dedicated image. You just did show us exactly that - there is one for RPi for this very reason 🙂
If they prepare one for RK1, then you'll be able to flash it

@_dhanos_ is there a way to make your own image, and what would be the challenges of that? i'm quite interested

You can use hashicorp packer which ain't that difficult for building images
