This stream auto-updates

  1. Today
  2. It most of the times means a replacement has been installed and this package isn't needed anymore. You'll often have that on a fresh install after doing update/upgrade, or from installing and removing many programs. So you get packages that aren't used by anything. So it gives you the message it may be removed with autoremove. If everything works, don't care about it.
  3. @SymbiosisSystems I take it you have a set of 0.8.5 modules built? They work fine with the 0.8.4 zfsutils-linux package, but it requires the zfs-dkms package which will fail to build. We can work around this by installing a dummy package that provides zfs-dkms so that we then can go ahead and install zfsutils-linux / zfs-zed / etc. from backports. Here's how you can create a dummy package: apt-get install --yes equivs mkdir zfs-dkms-dummy; cd $_ cat <<EOF >zfs-dkms Section: misc Priority: optional Standards-Version: 3.9.2 Package: zfs-dkms-dummy Version: 0.8.4 Mainta
  4. is it causing any problems? or are you just looking at it from a housekeeping perspective.
  5. Could you try to install using Maskrom mode ?
  6. Initial attempt with the new uboot and with removing the cpufreq tweaks results in a new panic And trying again
  7. @jbergler Could you try the attached u-boot ? This u-boot contains updated Rockchip blob (DDR driver & ATF) install with dpkg -i linux-u-boot-current-helios64_20.11.0-trunk_arm64.deb After that, run armbian-config > System > Install > 5 Install/Update the bootloader on SD/eMMC If you are using SD card, make sure to clean bootloader on the eMMC. you can run dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk1 seek=64 count=30000 Power cycle the system. The system should boot with new bootloader. Please take note at binaries version DDR Vers
  8. Thanks SteeMan. Honestly I downloaded 20.11 stuff but couldn't find any amlogics stuff. I had read earlier in the blog the ongoing troubles with amlogics as a manufacturer so somehow I decided it wasn't supported anymore?? But obviously I am just WRONG. I am new here so I only get one post/day so - here is what I learned today. So I downloaded Armbian_20.10_Arm-64_bullseye_current_5.9.0_desktop and have Bullseye booting just fine. Running through all the dtb files. But still having the same problem - it is not recognizing my ethernet or wifi card.
  9. My bad !! You may try now Zero48
  10. @zero48 Sure follow jock's suggestions and you will hit the goal. Your photos are on drive but request authorization for watching maybe better if you can make them public even to non Gmail users . Thise photos could help someone else
  11. I already copy u-boot-s905x-s912 to u-boot.ext My android box boots successfully to android TV screen without SDCard I've never tried other software before Tks
  12. Yesterday
  13. Hi, It is a 4GB SD class10 . I'll Try Jock suggestion . I think I'll get a Linux machine since windows wont Show me anything after imagetool is flashed with Balena . Thanks
  14. Hello, I'll try multitool as you noted . Here attached some pictures of the BOX. Thanks very much for your Tip ... I'll Test and Post Zero48
  15. Ok, I bought better SD card and now everything works great. Tank you!
  16. Did you also copy u-boot-s905x-s912 to u-boot.ext? . Also, does the box boot to android successfully without the sdcard installed? Also, have you tried other software like coreelec on this box?
  17. Wow that was quick! I didn't even have a chance to kick what's next ?
  18. Yay 24 hour delay is over. This is regarding the degraded performance of the 2.5gbe on 5.8. I am unsure if my iperf results are aligning with what others are seeing. Given that tx offload is definitely off, I assume so. Formulated context and question: I have just put my helios64 together. I am seeing degraded performance of the 2.5gbe interface as warned. The notes I saw everywhere were "disable tx checksum offload". How do I check if tx offloading is on or off? I tested with ethtool, and yes it is off. ❯ sudo ethtool -k eth1 | grep tx-checksum tx
  19. 4x WD red for nas in the first four bays. After hours of debugging I have find out that I have inserted the HDDs in the opposite vertically direction. I have fixed it by removing the HDDs, re-screwed the HDD Slot connectors and re-inserting the HDDs in the correct direction. So we can conclude the problem is between the helios64 and the chair.
  20. Hi, have your friend tried passing pcie_aspm.policy=powersave to the kernel's command line? It can be done with "extraargs=" stanza in /etc/armbianEnv.txt I use it with all (two ;p) my rk3399 nvme setups and also with my Armbian build server. I remember it lowering both SSD temps and overall power usage. I don't have hard figures on both savings and performance loss and... YMMV depending on the drive but it's worth trying.
  21. After installing Ubuntu Focal 20.08.17 (on Pine A64), I have noticed the following. Uninstalling unneeded packages with apt-get autoremove shows that the package python3-distro-info will be uninstalled. Can other users confirm this issue and can it be fixed when building the image?
  22. After installing Ubuntu Focal 20.08.17 (on Pine A64), I have noticed the following. Searching for packages which are not fully installed with dpkg -l|grep -v ^ii returns systemd-timesyncd. This can be fixed by purging the package with dpkg -P systemd-timesyncd but it is better if the image is shipped with this already fixed. Can other users confirm this issue and can it be fixed when building the image?
  23. There is a shortcut actually. If you are using a stable image provided by armbian servers you can install the kernel sources and kernel headers for rk322x-current via apt-get. Also the kernel configuration is available in /boot so you can use that one as .config file. With this combo you should be able to compile the kernel directly on the device, but you should be also able to compile just the kernel module you need instead of compiling the whole kernel following any recent ubuntu kernel/kernel module compilation guide. I never tried the procedure above, but it should wo
  24. If you find somebody with the know-how to implement and support it. Why not. For the moment I don't see any room for this with the limited resources. The Raspberry Pi is a totally different beast compared to other SBCs. Also just half supporting it with an image that does boot but where many functions don't work is not a good thing. There is a lot that could be adopted from UbuntuARM64/Raspberry Pi OS. But implementing it all would be a monster task. My guess is it would be easier to write a new build-script for the RPi itself than to adopt the build script we've got now. Since so ma
  25. You probably will not have to wait too long. Depends on how much this SoC is changed vs the H6. People who need a board have one, I've also got one on the way to review when Armbian runs well on it.
  26. I wanted to share 2 custom overlays I've created and tested for the RockPi E to enable UART1 and OTG via the GPIO. Create file rockchip-uart1.dts /dts-v1/; / { compatible = "rockchip,rk3328"; fragment@0 { target-path = "/serial@ff120000"; __overlay__ { pinctrl-0 = < 0x23 >; status = "okay"; }; }; }; Create file rockchip-otg.dts /dts-v1/; / { compatible = "rockchip,rk3328"; fragment@0 { target-path = "/usb@ff580000"; __overlay__ { dr_mode = "otg"; }; }; }; Install and enable overlays: sudo armbian-add-overlay r
  27. Awesome guys, when will the change be in the current build? Out of curiosity: What is “ZSMALLOC_PGTABLE_MAPPING“ actually doing?
