  1. Past hour
  2. It's about the price for the equipment. S905X3 or any other equipment with the best characteristics, for the same amount, an order of magnitude better solution.
  3. have u set the reserved tee memory on your dtb? it cost about 32MB or 36MB i'm not sure... like whats @hexdump already describe, yesterday this is was fixing my crash issue... reserved-memory { #address-cells = <2>; #size-cells = <2>; ranges; tee@0x8400000 { reg = <0x0 0x8400000 0x0 0x2400000>; no-map; }; };
  4. Yes, Believe me. I can wait :-) Its a micro price to pay for that kernel
  5. Today
  6. @deathisunknown Thanks, what about: echo disabled > /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/mode echo 255 > /sys/devices/platform/pwm-fan/hwmon/hwmon1/pwm1 The last echo line, is it a path you got? Try to run. A spining fan is better than no fan at all, right? Will you please report back when you got time, thanks in advance. Maybe i can put a simple script together.
  7. Don't exactly understand what you mean by that, but that FriendlyDesktop you can install only on Nanopi M4 and its siblings (T4, Neo4). And nowhere else. This support forum requires that: you use Armbian (support is tied to Armbian, not to Nanopi M4) you have provide logs with our tools. No logs = no help. things you attach to the board are officially not supported, but someone can give you some hints. I don't work with cameras, so I don't know how good or bad they are. That will require some work/configuring. You need to use 3rd party application such as XRDP or VNC. After you establish network connection to the same router where your laptop is connected to ... In case video stream is accelerated, it will not go over XRDP & VNC protocols which means you need to upgrade your laboratory equipment.
  8. thanks. this sums it up really interesting tho, that I can boot the Friendly image off sd card.
  9. Will the helios64 be the future for kobol? Do you expect any more helios4 board runs? Sent from my LM-G710 using Tapatalk
  10. Try this. Rename it it to dtb.img and put it in the boot partition of 5.4.4 m8_k200_sdio.dtb
  11. this is still happening? hmmmm. Let me see, since I'm crawling around in the renegade stuff
  12. Bumping with update, then closing this thread as the original content is for 5.7 USB3 driver has been added to Kernel 5.4 images for RK3328 boards.
  13. The media script is only functional with the rockchip 4.4 kernel. The upstream decoder support is incomplete, and incompatible with the Rockchip driver.
  14. if you are on the broken desktop, <ctrl><alt><F1> to get the terminal.
  15. It can be useful to have a system that is able to use the usb devices right from the first login, on a desktop configuration. Adding the support of U2F usb security keys is straight forward on a system running udev already, it's just a text file. I do not know how much it can be useful on server and headless installations, but again the udev rules file if tiny. 70-u2f.rules
  16. Yesterday
  17. Works fine on my NanoPC-T4. Even Bluetooth worked...but no wifi, that was easy to fix. Thanks for your work.
  18. https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/74a2e23f8a92e9f45520421dc6d845a999565b3f
  19. Here's my working rc.local (usio is the group I want to give access to): chown -R root:usio /sys/devices/platform/leds/leds chmod -R ug+rw /sys/devices/platform/leds/leds
  20. Indeed after a fresh checkout things got better and now I can build ok the supported items in build system. The problem is that jessie build bails out with error, though as @Igor said, the 3.4.113 can still be compiled with xenial and the 19.08 branch (for as long as it does..) A minor but time consuming task is that whenever we have to make a new fresh checkout, it takes so many hours to re-download all the cached components specifically the toolchains and thats a real bummer. Thanks for your hints.
  21. Yet another tip. Before moving from my average/low website-ux-designfu created website I was studying this book: "Don't make me think". It's covering some UX basics. Light read. Enough to understand why its better to hire professionals to do the website for you then wasting time producing crap that makes more troubles than gain. Graphical and UX design was applied to the website, never to forum. It was planed, never executed. Eliminating confusion is the key element to lower the need for moderating. IMO its a serious job, but still, we can do it better if we known methods that works and those who doesn't. (design is probably just fine and a matter of personal taste/preference and skin can also be changed without much effort)
  22. I was talking to @soerenderfor about getting on IRC (and some initial confusion he had) which reminded me of something I was already thinking about before: Originally we discussed redirecting irclogs.armbian.com -> whitequark log display website, but somehow we ended up with irc.armbian.com -> whitequark website. I have always thought that to be a bit confusing, perhaps at irc.armbian.com we should have a landing page or some instructions, wherein contains another link to the exterior logging page (and clarifying it is an external page perhaps). And/or also redirect irclogs.armbian.com to there. Since DNS / site level stuff rises above my pay grade to @Igor and/or @lanefu, I am pinging them here.
  23. This forum is dedicated for digitally signed Armbian images. Support for Tinkerboard is done by ASUS. If. Armbian with kernel 4.4.y should behave the same way as stock (ASUS/Linaro) while to get this functionality on a modern kernel, some patches needs to be implemented. Perhaps they already are, just not properly enabled. If you would use a Google, you wound find a patch since someone did something about. If you need this feature, proceed with implementing a patch with our build system or manually. If it works for you, send a patch to the build system. This is how I would solve this.
  24. I have been able to install, and boot the OP+ with a 16GB USB storage. For it to boot though, I have to have a sdcard inserted (I'm guessing I could use something other then a card to trick the OP), before it fails to boot from sdcard, and then moves onto the next boot sequence (usb storage). I've tried writing armbian to multiple cards, using a pin to try to realign it, and other tips, and it just refuses to boot from microsd. I've resolved the fact that I may need to just usb for the time being. Based on that information, is there ANY script out there that will write from usb to EMMC? The original nand script I removed the "if booting from usb halt install" code, and that still did not work to write directly from usb. If I could write the finalized armbian OS from the usb to emmc I think I could solve this issue. Any ideas?
  25. Part of me wanted to set up some simple "wget -> grep -> text file with data" script to run on cron every (15? 5?) minutes and compile the data and then make some nice graph with gnuplot or something. But then I thought, surely @Igor already has some much better site metrics at his disposal. Plus he might not want me downloading the forum page again every x minutes (although I probably do at least this much just doing my normal forum work with several tabs open).
  26. Well I actually pointed you in this direction so you do not have to edit config files manually since the build script hands you over to the menuconfig containing the designated config which should be linux-sunxi-xxx . Anyway nice that you could figure it out your way.
  27. I have split off all the Moderator Tips, Q&A, etc. to the following (large and growing) thread. To me, this thread is for "signing up" and we can (and are) getting into lots of the nitty-gritty of details, guidelines, clarifications, etc. in this other thread: I also split off posts about Vanitarium's problems accessing post to their own thread. And split the IRC channel related posts off into their own thread. Let's try and now keep this thread for new volunteers and welcoming.
  28. @fourtyseven I haven't really had time for this, but if you understand the underlying frameworks used it should be easy to determine relative performance. Let's look at GPIO for instance. There are basically three modes (fastest to slowest): Board-specific Linux drivers that access GPIO addresses in /dev/mem for fasted performance at the trade-off of being able to run on very specific versions of single-board-computers. In the future, the board-specific Linux drivers may be removed in favor of only supporting libgpiod and sysfs Linux interfaces. libgpiod for fast full-featured GPIO access on all Linux distros since version 4.8 of the Linux kernel. Slower and limited-functionality GPIO access via the deprecated Sysfs interface (/sys/class/gpio) when running on older Linux distro versions with a Linux kernel older than version 4.8. I've never had to go the /dev/mem route and would only do that as a last resort. Remember the idea behind User Space IO is cross SBC/language support. Now let's talk about the wrappers. Obviously Python wrappers are going to be faster than the JNA wrappers generated for the JDK. Again, the trade off here is I can use a similar API to C and Python in Java and other JDK languages. Others have done benchmarks https://blog.adafruit.com/2018/11/26/sysfs-is-dead-long-live-libgpiod-libgpiod-for-linux-circuitpython "So we’re pretty psyched about libgpiod. From our experiments, its much much faster than sysfs. Its not as fast as mem twiddling, but that’s not too surprising, there’s still kernel messages and error checking done. A Pi 3 got us 400Khz pin output toggles in a loop in C, 100KHz in Python examples, and that’s pretty good for bitbanging."
