    UART with NanoPi M4

    well I checked the connection so many times so it should be correct Also, with a default DTB I can log in via UART with the following command % sudo screen -L /dev/tty.usbserial-FTADURC2 1500000 I attached the pic of my USB-TTL on nano pi so you can check it I will try with this kernel
  3. I've figured out what causes part of the memory leak. When SSL is disabled for the FTP server (within Openmediavault, which I had enabled at first), then there will still be a memory leak, but just not as fast. Yes, that means two memory leaks! ProFTPd just leaks all the faster when you have SSL turned on. With non-SSL encrypted FTP transfers, the memory is still leaking, just much slower. As the RAM usage slowly creeps up, at a rate of about 1MB every 5 seconds, my 60GB file upload might actually make it across, before all the RAM runs out. Boo, proftpd!! I'll see about opening a bug later...

    Espressobin support development efforts

    As I had a deeper look into the clk source code I can say that I know what the programer wanted to do with the last two lines of armada37xx_cpufreq_dvfs_setup(). This is the place where the right TBG clock should be set, but this could never be worked. As in the clk.c file one can see that nothing is done when the parent clock to be set is the same as the one already set. I will try what happens if I first set NULL as parent and then the old parent. Maybe this will work.

    Kernel update -> no longer bootable

    uEnv.txt isnt available on a armbian-system (I think), because as I know armbian does use the 2 files - /boot/boot.scr and - /boot/armbianEnv.txt ( did you read about teh uEnv.txt at ?) /boot/boot.scr isnt directly a editable file, because it seems to have a small binary header and then says also: # # Please edit /boot/armbianEnv.txt to set supported parameters # If you are using a armbian-system and do update via "apt update" then apt would do everything for you to set the new kernel active. If you upgrade your armbian you should be able to get kernel 4.19.y. See the images at:
  7. My S912's running Armbian_5.75_Aml-s912_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.20.5_desktop_20190211 1. T95Z Plus 2. TX9 Pro 3. BM8 Pro and yeah, smooth desktop
  8. I did an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, and rebooted. This set the vm.swappiness to 100. Here is new armbianmonitor -u output, during ftp transfer: Note, current version of proftpd-basic installed is 1.3.5b-4, as well as proftpd-mod-vroot, version 0.9.4-1. As I watch htop, here's what I observe, during an FTP upload. The normal RAM (never mind zram) starts off having only 128M being occupied. As the FTP transfer progresses, the RAM usage counts up and up and up, over several minutes, in a very linear and gradual way, with proftpd as the top process. The RAM just keeps slowly filling, at a rate of about 1MB/second, until all the RAM runs out, and then a crash! It looks like a memory leak somehow in either proftpd-basic or proftpd-mod-vroot!! Activity happens a lot in /var/log/proftpd/vroot.log during the FTP transfer, looking like the following: 2019-02-22 09:22:51,284 mod_vroot/0.9.4[2252]: found 0 VRootAliases in directory '/srv/dev-disk-by-id-usb-JMicron_Tech_00000000522A-0-0-part1/share2/somefolder1 2019-02-22 09:22:51,470 mod_vroot/0.9.4[2252]: found 0 VRootAliases in directory '/srv/dev-disk-by-id-usb-JMicron_Tech_00000000522A-0-0-part1/share2/somefolder2 I think the zram thing is a red-herring now. It would clearly all get full, no matter how I fine tune it. I've changed the title accordingly. Accordingly, I never edited /etc/default/armbian-zram-config. @tkaiser, the reason I use FTP for larger transfers, is that it's faster than SMB. I get about an extra 10MB/sec using FTP, rather than SMB, over GbE. I do use SMB by default (in Nemo), for smaller transfers (say, anything less than about 300 MB), and just surfing around file shares, maybe streaming a video or MP3.

    Kernel update -> no longer bootable

    Which Kernel did you use before ? Debian or Ubuntu ?

    Soundcard vanishing on OrangePi Zero

    because alsa is normally installed I do install additionally "alsa-utils". With that I use "aplay -l" to display the soundcards and their numbers. When you got "no soundcard" after boot do a "dmesg -w" and reconnect the USB-Speaker to see if it is recognized or what error-message will occur. Also check the USB-Bus with "lsusb" if your USB-Speaker is recognized. For verification you could also activate the internal soundcard in armbian-config -> system - > hardware (analog-audio) then reboot and check if there is now a soundcard and which number they have. I never got a good usage of pulseaudio - for me alsa allways did work better.

    No bzip2 is not the same as gzip2 afaik...

  15. apt upgrade updated the kernel of Banana pro, according to symlinks in /boot from Updated 4.9.0-7 to 4.9.0-8. Now I only get "Starting Linux", which means that output is send to serial console not tty from what I read. I read that I'd have edit uEnv.txt in order to solve the console issue and continue debugging the issue, but I cannot find this file anywhere on the partition. I tried to revert boot.scr but this did not change anything. I probably could revert to the old kernel by changing the symlinks as well, but I would rather like to use the new kernel....
  16. Hello all. New ESPRESSObin owner here, so please forgive any obvious oversights I may have missed. I'm still getting familiar with it. I'm following the instructions on the Download page. I have a new 32GB Samsung SD card with an Armbian (mainline kernel 4.19.y) flashed onto it using Etcher for Windows. I flashed a new version of u-boot, specifically "flash-image-ddr4-1g-1cs-1000_800.bin", and that seemed to work without a hitch. I defined the environment variables as directed. When booting, it seems to go through my devices and I would guess that it can't find the image based on the "bad device, wrong image format" messages but I'm not 100% sure. I read that some folks suggest disconnecting your PC from power when using the console so I tried that. I tried reflashing the SD card and u-boot and those processes seem to be successful. I also tried using a 4GB USB flash drive with the same Armbian image flashed to it and the same message appears. I've been trying this for a few hours now- starting fresh, reflashing, rebooting, reading threads/guides, etc... Can anyone point me in the right direction of how to overcome this? What am I doing wrong here? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Also, I see a reference to "REV 5" near the top of my log. Do I have a v5 board? I bought it from Amazon and it specifically said "v7" in the title and this board has the newer 15-pin SATA connector, and I believe that's an indicator of v7. Full console log:
  17. A newer 4.9.118 seems to be included in their Android Pie BSP.

    Armbian for Amlogic S912

    Ah, I understand now. It must be some kind of failsafe feature in the Android image, if the original u-boot detects that the Android partitions have been changed, it automatically launches a reinstall/reboot process. Good to know. I'll have to try the eMMC install on my Km8-P's and see what happens. Thank you for the warning.

    with the sole exception of bzip2 (gzip2?) i've tried them all. (I'll try it later)
  20. Not much of a tutorial, but it is something that often needs some googling and head scratching. This is how I got my particular modem working, your mileage may vary. Step 1) Get a modem that will work. I got a Huawei E397u LTE/UMTS/GSM modem. It's Cricket branded, but I'm on Google Fi, it will work with my data SIM. Step 2) Plug it in and see that it doesn't work. Step 3a) apt update Step 3b) apt upgrade Step 4) Install usb-modeswitcher Step 4, optional part 2) install modem-manager, modem-manager-gui (for general playing around) Step 5) unplug/replug the USB modem, see that it should magically have a different VID:PID when you type lsusb. You should also have some ttyUSB's, and you can check out modem details in the modem-manager-gui Step 6) set up network connection via the network dropdown at the top right of the desktop. You will need APN information for your carrier. I put in modem-manager so I could debug. It will cause issues if you do certain things with it while connected. My modem was $15, Ebay has them. So does amazon.

    If you could find the source, but I doubt you will. Even cheap China tablet makers holds the source propietary so the only source you will find is open source, and then the HW support is probably not so good so point lost. I don't have any Android build on kernel 4 so can't investigate that.

    Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x (>= ver 5.55)

    yes, 8.1, I did a lengthy search, and aside from a (4.4/kitkat, 7ci cheapo tablet) trick where the actual initrd file had a header of about 70bytes of garbage, I've found nothing. (tried doing a dump/analysis of the file to see if I could find an gzip/lz/xz etc. header within the file, but without results :-( The only idea that came to mind, was to re-create a similar version of the kernel/init etc, and import the modules from the android setup (i.e cp the /lib/modules) to ease into a clean setup. (at that point, it may be easier just to find and recompile the whole thing! )

    I see, was this Android 8? I'll do some more digging then. I will test with android 6 and 7 and see what I can find out.

    Armbian for Amlogic S912

    I tried to get the Armbian s912 image to write to the KM8p Mecool 1gb/8gb flash memory. I used the utility i found in Armbian settings. It is a control line interface app. It gave me an option to write the image to Flash memory. After writing the image, I could then look at the 8GB FLASH using GPARTED and see that the flash memory was now partitioned differently. Now I have 3 KM8 Mecool's and they were all bought separately. They seem to have different Android images on the flash memory. To cut a long story it appears that on rebooting the KM8 i had written the Armbian image to flash on, it would reboot and go back or reinstall android and then boot. In the end i gave up on installing Armbian to the flash and just installed the same Android 7 image on all three km8's.

    Le Potato general topics

    Interesting post, 4.20 is not supported, and I have a potato that I boot up periodically without issue, so perhaps this has to do with some additional hardware you have attached. You've been around long enough to know you need to provide an armbianmonitor -u link.
