  2. Pi-factor cases

    @tkaiser my Nanopi Neo boards use 2mm thermal pad. It just works.
  3. You mean image from the download section? Which one exactly? Ideally, we should pack those things in the build process. Thank you. I'll try to cope with those problems ASAP.
  4. Android on H6 Boards

    Replacing the .dtb file contents with the one for PineH64 works somewhat (at least the kernel uses the updated .dtb -- see the gmac-power0, gmac-power1 and gmac-power2 entries in serial console output). But then with the Xunlong image PineH64 panics: Same modified image boots on an OPi Lite2 but... this Allwinner BSP crap is that horrible that it's really not worth a look (at least for the stuff I'm interested in). UAS is not supported, quick USB3 storage 'performance' test results in 40/45 MB/s read/write with an EVO840 SSD, no drivers included for any of the popular USB Ethernet dongles. I had the idea to do some tests with the BSP to get some baseline numbers but in this state this is all just a waste of time...
  5. FEX script machine
  6. Pi-factor cases

    Sure, this is how it should work. Great that now even the RPi folks got it Yesterday I 'unboxed' Orange Pi Lite 2 (Allwinne H6). As small as the H3 Lite but extra thick PCB. After 10 minutes of idle operation the whole PCB including all receptacles is warm so the groundplane efficiently spreads the heat away from the SoC. I put 3 low performing heatsinks on SoC, PMIC and DRAM and reported SoC temperature went down from 49°C in idle to 46°C (after waiting the same 10 minutes or until temperature is stable). So still curious how efficient a 2mm thermal pad between PCB lower side and an aluminium enclosure would work (to transport heat out of an enclosure). To be clear: I'm talking about something like this (and am not willing to spend my own time on such tests any more since done with the low consumption/thermal stuff) Testing such stuff with enclosures that already exist seems impossible. The FLIRC is constructed wrongly and to buy the Wicked you must be mad.
  7. It should work good enough with the legacy kernel and preinstalled mpv, check its limitation. There is no video acceleration within a web browser - you need to use some 3rd party application. Video playing and mainline kernel. It has to be developed first. Implementation on Allwinner boards is expected to happen this summer/autumn.

  9. Gogo android tv stick linux

    not sure this is the right place to post this got one of these really cheap last year $10nzd in a mall on clearance was wanting to know if there was any linux os out there i could install on this ?
  10. Hey folks, I'm trying to play back a couple test files, H.264, 720p. These play without dropping frames on the stock Android ROM for a little while but then freeze, seemingly on certain keyframes? It's always in the same place. Anyway, I tried playing them with mpv on Armbian 5.38 desktop install and it drops frames like crazy. I know the stock Android ROM can play back Youtube content (in the app) without dropping frames - it seems like this should be doable based on what I understand about the capabilities of the A20 and on hardware support in the legacy kernel in the Armbian image ... is there tuning I should be doing? Or options for mpv that I can try? I've used VLC for years and am not really used to other players. I'm hoping to use this box to watch 720p content, youtube, and run quod libet to listen to music. Any tuning tips would be appreciated. So far I'm just running off SD card but I have a disk I might be able to throw on it.
  11. Reboot needed to update IP address

    Since I have done nothing to configure the network, /etc/network/interfaces is probable. It has: # Wired adapter #1 allow-hotplug eth0 no-auto-down eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp
  12. Overscan issue - screen out of bounds

    I had this issue with my Cubieboard 2 in Armbian on a Viewsonic monitor, but not a (much newer) Dell monitor. The issue never appeared in Cubian or in the stock Android ROM.

  14. FEX script machine

    Someone could explain what fex "machine" does? Each board has specific machine, like machine=cubietruck. Who use this information? Uboot? Kernel? For what? Thanks, Leonardo
  15. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

  16. Switching to nightly in a non-updated system (armbian OdroidXU4 5.37 without any upgrades) causes some packages to have missing dependencies and remain unconfigured, until you do manually apt -f install Installing desktop on top of CLI works fine in XU4. Only that, after installation is finished, the user is presented with the desktop while the script is still running in another virtual terminal. No big deal, but can be fixed by: Terminating the script after installation Getting the virtual terminal id at the beginning with "SCRIPTVT=$(fgconsole)", and then returning there at the end with "chvt $SCRIPTVT" OpenGL-ES and Webgl also work, I'll post a script in other thread. Wi-Fi hotspot with Odroid module 3 (rtl8192cu) works out of the box.
  17. Hello, I've flashed my SD card with Armbian_5.41_Orangepiwin_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.10.107_desktop and after booting the system everything works like a charm except my sound which I've tried to get through the 3.5mm jack. I've done upgrade && update but that doesn't seem to help. I've tried several headphones and speakers and none of them worked. On top of that I've tried flashing this image file on one other microSD card and I've tried running it on another Opi Win Plus board since I have several of them lying around my house. Regarding my power supply, it's 5V 3A which I've read is the appropriate one. I'm fairly new to Linux with really limited knowledge of how everything works here, so I would really appreciate some help in solving this issue. Also, if it gives you any clues what could be the cause of problem, when playing videos on YT on Chromium all of them seem to lag a lot. They just don't have that fluidness you need to watch any video. On Firefox is a different story - videos play ok there but there is still no sound there either. When I type aplay -l I get this **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: sndhdmi [sndhdmi], device 0: SUNXI-HDMIAUDIO sndhdmi-0 [] Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 and aplay -L gives me this output null Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture) pulse PulseAudio Sound Server default Playback/recording through the PulseAudio sound server sysdefault:CARD=sndhdmi sndhdmi, Default Audio Device dmix:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0 sndhdmi, Direct sample mixing device dsnoop:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0 sndhdmi, Direct sample snooping device hw:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0 sndhdmi, Direct hardware device without any conversions plughw:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0 sndhdmi, Hardware device with all software conversions Help, please!
  18. have the same issue, is there a solution?
  19. Real time clock DS3231

    Today I connected a I2C RTC to my NanoPi Neo Core2, worked without a problem....but if anyone is getting the same RTC (ZS-042) and using a CR2032 battery - please remove the smd resistor in the upper right corner, because this board does charge the battery, because there should normally be a LIR2032 rechargeable battery. see at 02:00 and I2C instructions at
  20. EspressoBin - mPci-e

    I see, the access point broadcasts at 2.4 GHz only.
  21. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Image update Armbian 20180323 kernel 4.14.11 . Works wired network, USB, monitor (you can change the screen resolution on the fly). The images are in the "test"directory.
  22. Reboot needed to update IP address

    Are you using NetworkManager or plain /etc/network/interfaces ? If you used the second, do you have the "allow-hotplug" attribute ?
  23. Orange PI zero operate RF 433

    Yes ! That's what I mean ...
  24. I have just received an Orange Pi PC Plus, and am mostly happy with it. Linux orangepipcplus 4.14.18-sunxi is installed on a microSD card. There is a minor problem with IP addresses. When I first turned it on I forgot to plug in the network cable, so naturally ifconfig showed no IP address. I plugged in the cable, waited a minute, and tried again. Still no address. Maybe it's not hot-pluggable. Reboot, and I got an address. Since it was outside the range my server accepts I assigned a static address in the router, and rebooted the router. ifconfig still showed the first address, even though the router's client list showed the new static address. Another reboot was needed. All my other systems update an address change automatically. Some day I hope to be able to stream live TV (currently I get 5fps) but it's not a priority.
  25. Hello, i've experienced eMMC Problems with the latest stable Jessie Armbian-Image for Odroid C2. Thats why i installed Debian_jessie_next_desktop_nightly.7z from the nightly builds. After my first experiences it seems that image is working good since i did all of my configurations over serial console and ssh. Now when connecting my display it's not working. Which is 1440x900p60hz and connected over a hdmi<->dvi Adapter to the board. The device is starting with a black screen and not not detecting any display when i try to start the X-Server manually and there are also no /dev/fbdev* devices. Since the boot files between stable and nightly images differ, there might be something that needs to be configured in order to get the framebuffer device alive ??? Any help is appreciated. Best regards, Thomas
  26. Hi, I have a question regarding standard DNS server entry in resolv.conf: The Google DNS is at the top followed by the one supplied by my DHCP service. That way the Google server will be queried first, which I think is wrong, considering privacy implications. Why is it hardcoded anyway? As I understand it, it comes from /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head? this should not include anything. Would be nice If somebody could clarify why it is implemented that way. Thanx
  27. Freedombox can and does work well on armbian. I have succeffuly installed it using the following
  28. Orange PI zero operate RF 433

    ho ok reading futher I've seen that I could used ATmega328P serial exposed pin (#0 & #1) as done here * * let see if I can use the rx/tx off the OPIZ
