  1. Past hour
  2. If you have money to donate simple increase your subscription We need to make sure to use our funds wisely so the process of tinkering how to so takes quite some time. There will be fundraising campains in the future as soon as we have a solid idea about what we need.
  3. Yup. Sometimes it is necessary to replace a package with another one even inside a branch, Focal for example. Probably less likely with Buster Anyway as long as the package is not insanely big or causing trouble I'll leave it as it is. However you are free to check into the build script and look for the installed packages and do some tests with this package not installed by default if it is even possible from scratch.
  4. The spi flash memory (with the u-boot environment stored inside) is accessible from the command line. Please check if the corresponding driver is loaded via dmesg. It should look like: [ 1.878826] spi-nor spi0.0: w25q32dw (4096 Kbytes) [ 1.878850] 2 cmdlinepart partitions found on MTD device spi0.0 [ 1.878854] Creating 2 MTD partitions on "spi0.0": [ 1.878870] 0x000000000000-0x0000003f0000 : "uboot" [ 1.888884] 0x0000003f0000-0x000000400000 : "uboot-environment" The partitioning information is passed as a command line parameter to the kernel (last parameter in this case):
  5. Writing the support is one side, maintaining the other. I am pretty confident Igor does not want to invest waste on this task. If volunteers jump in to maintain...maybe add it as CSC? Depends on how it grows if at all. However there is also the users that will need to be taken care of. Most likely even more demanding than the usual Armbian user.... Also I don't know what Armbian can do (much) better than for example Ubuntu which already provide server like images as Armbian for SBCs does. Just my personal opinion. I am no developer. These are just my guts feel
  6. You performance is not aligned with what we see on our side. Instead of getting 2.35 Gbit/s when TX offload works (e.g on LK4.4), with TX checksum offload disable, you should get around 1.8 Gbit/s You sure TX offload is off on both side ?
  7. Today
  8. @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
  9. Could you try to install using Maskrom mode ?
  10. Initial attempt with the new uboot and with removing the cpufreq tweaks results in a new panic And trying again
  11. 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.
  12. My bad !! You may try now Zero48
  13. 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
  14. Yesterday
  15. Ok, I bought better SD card and now everything works great. Tank you!
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. Awesome guys, when will the change be in the current build? Out of curiosity: What is “ZSMALLOC_PGTABLE_MAPPING“ actually doing?
  22. I can't help but think that those patches must have been left out (or decided against) for some reason. Although it's possible they just got missed or something, too. Only someone more knowledgeable than me about the specifics and history of this board/family could tell you that definitively, though. In the meantime, you could try Building Armbian, and include some different version of patches, files or whatever. If you have some spare sdcard, it would not even be that disruptive to your current running system. And then you could report back your results?
  23. I suppose it depends on which RK3399 you are referring to?
  24. Attempting to connect ILI9341 LCD with XPT2046 Touch to NanoPi NEO Core2 and then migrate to NanoPi Duo2. The ILI9341 / XPT2046 peripheral board has shared SPI with a separate slave chip select for the screen and touch controllers. Starting with hardware datasheet for the H3 I see there is lots of support for different chip select implementations. This makes me think I am on good footing from a hardware perspective. What is not clear to me is how the register support for four slave chip selects translates into pin assignments. Reading through spi-sun6i.c., f
  25. Good catch.... "git checkout v2015.04 -b tmp" should be "git checkout v2020.10 -b tmp"
  26. 1. As mentioned on wiki, you can download the driver from 2. Which fan connector that does not work? Could you try to swap the fan, to check whether this is fan problem or the control signal.
  27. Did you follow the instruction and binaries from the wiki ? I recall got the "Test Device Fail" message when i used old version of DriverAssistant and AndroidTool.
  28. No announcements that I'm aware of. I just have a script running in conky looking for chamges at
