  2. Thank you @SteeMan for creating a new dedicated thread with this issue. I give the most detailed information in my hand, and tests in order to keep track in context: 1. Details about the TV Box: Model: TX3 Mini (new model 2021). It's the genuine. Board: 1.6 Processor: Amlogic S905W GPU: Mali 450 WIFI module: AP6330 Links for more TV Box information (in vietnamite):
  3. on all USB Ports ? do you use Wifi ? or Ethernet , do have any tmp or swap file configure on SD card ?
  4. hmm , recently it came to my attention bbr between both wireguard servers is doing a very bad job: :/etc/sysctl.d# iperf3 -4 -c -t 300 -b 0 -P 1 Connecting to host, port 5201 [ 5] local port 41804 connected to port 5201 [ ID] Interval Transfer Bitrate Retr Cwnd [ 5] 0.00-1.00 sec 1.29 MBytes 10.8 Mbits/sec 0 112 KBytes [ 5] 1.00-2.00 sec 502 KBytes 4.11 Mbits/sec 0 104 KBytes [ 5] 2.00-3.00 sec 753 KBytes 6.17 Mbits/sec 0 98.9 KBytes [ 5] 3.00-4.00 sec 753 KByte
  5. Today
  6. You need to provide more information if you wish to get help. What to you mean by 'TX3 first version'? What dtbs have you tried? Are you able to boot and have everything working except ethernet or are you having issues getting armbian to boot at all?
  7. @jock Thanks for your comments. I will certainly reach out to you before I do anything with your threads (like moving them to a different sub-forum, etc). What you are doing seems to be working well for the users you are supporting, and I don't want to break what works. The support issues generally are on the amlogic side of things right now. Since there is no active development support for builds for amlogic based TV boxes after balbes stopped supporting them. The additional problem is that the majority of TV boxes produced seem to contain amlogic cpus (although rockchip seems to be
  8. @ballerburg9005 I just wanted to add a few of my own thoughts to this thread. Overall I can see both sides to the above discussion. There are valid points made by everyone commenting. While we all sometimes need to have 'grand visions' of the future we would like to work towards, we also have to deal with the reality of where we currently are. I often think of a saying "crawl, walk, run". While we all want to be running to the finish line of an Olympic race, we all start by crawling first. As that relates to armbian and more specifically armbian on TV boxes, we are at the crawling stage.
  9. @sfs This is not a valid submission. The dtb you reference is not part of the distribution. So a new user couldn't follow the general installation instructions and get your results. As was mentioned in the instructions, you need to only use files from the distribution. You can add comments about how other settings/dtbs/tweeks improved your installation. Also if you are referencing external code, I would request that you also include or link to source code not the compiled objects (i.e. dts vs. dtb). That way in the future someone may be able to maintain this addon/feature as changes to
  10. @Werner All Bionic builds are broken. Need to find time to rebuild them.
  11. @lgranie Thank you for your efforts. I'm glad to hear about your progress. Now I have more things to try and test.
  12. Unfortunately, there are differences in many files from version 4.14 to the current version 5.10, and I could create a new patch to the current version.

  13. One interface is enough for my needs. But this board looks like a nice choise and the price is fine too! Should be given a chance ;).
  14. After setting the parameter „vm.swappiness=0“ and deleting any not absolutely necessary UFW parameter (also the IPv6 ones) I set the network connection parameters again in „armbian-config“. Now the traffic, passing my relays, seems to go back to a normal value again. So I would say this problem is solved! Thanks a lot!
  15. (Some explanations to my votes : ) * I printed handles that directly screw with the fan screws on the back side. That's way easier to transport this way ! * The CPU is great, but 4GB of Ram is not enough for some purposes. * The shared SATA between sata1 and the m2 port ain't great. Would an NVMe port be possible ? * A standard PCB dimensions would not be difficult to do (only screw positions have to change) and would make a precedent for other SBC. * I've had low current issues on the USB-A ports for some usb hdds.
  16. Hi guys, My Helios64 keeps going offline, it has this red light come on the front panel but i am not sure what it means exactly. This happens once every few weeks, the system is fine after a reboot. What does this red light mean exactly? Is there anything i can do to prevent these breakdowns? Cheers,

  18. hi everyone, I have this program that displays temperature and humidity on my orange pi, what string can I add to upload this data to the site? thanks from pyA20.gpio import gpio from pyA20.gpio import port #import RPi.GPIO as GPIO import dht11 import time import datetime # initialize GPIO #gpio.setwarnings(False) #gpio.setmode(GPIO.BCM) PIN2 = port.PA6 gpio.init() #gpio.cleanup() # read data using pin 14 instance = dht11.DHT11(pin=PIN2) while True: result = if result.is_valid(): print("Last valid inpu
  19. Did you have any problems before? Stock bootloader does not support USB boot, you have to use an sdcard if you want to boot using the multitool. If you don't have any sdcard slot, you can use rkdevtool (or rkdeveloptool for linux, better but only command line) to write directly the armbian image on the board. This is generally very safe, but in very rare hardware configurations the bootloader shipped with armbian refused to load. In this unfortunate case, you may be able to follow the unbrick procedure described in the first page.
  20. In this second incident with the NPi K1 Plus I did check the sdcard on the Neo2 with fsck - and it tested the filesystem without problems. I also could see the UUID in the long version (with the right charcters) in /etc/fstab and /boot/armbianEvent.txt OK, it may be an unprintable character - then it would make sense that it doesnt want to start, but its interesting that on both devices the corruption does cut the UUID that the same place. Corruption due to Power-Outage is possible here in Turkey
  21. Then it is not related to the buster multimedia framework, bit something else. Your dmesg shows a USB webcam and cheese. Try without that device.
  22. sd and emmc are not present. The radxa's image have been flashed to the optane memory. But actrually the content inside the optane memory don't have much to do with this error. EVEN A BLANK OPTANE MEMORY CAUSES THIS ERROR.
  23. Yes the 64bit ARM CPUs support virtualization.. it's just not enabled in our kernels... something we should re-evaluate at some point.. You can build a kernel and enable it with the armbian build tools. I've ran VMs in the past, there's a bit of glue involved such as getting the qemu efi bios. Sorry I haven't played with virtualization in about a year.
  24. I think you can consider kiperline, its function is very powerful, maybe it can meet your needs.
  25. Well you just need to be patient ! Around 1988, Sun Microsystem took odds on RISC processors. Since then, Microsoft and Intel have continued to promote CISC based boilers. Now, Apple has decided to use ARM RISC procs ... 35 years later.
  26. If you want to speed it up, you can quick-fix it by doing the following: sudo rm /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02-armbian-compress-indexes sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/* sudo apt update If you don't want to remove 02-armbian-compress-indexes you can edit it and change true to false. Do note that these will, unfortunately, be overwritten/replaced by future updates to the linux-buster-root-current-helios64 package.
