  2. NanoPi K1 Plus to be released soon

    RTL8211 is used as PHY on all GbE capable SBC I know. The majority of boards uses RTL8211E, some RTL8211F and Olimex used also RTL8211CL a while ago. Pretty much irrelevant since always the GbE MAC implementation lives inside the SoC and the RTL8211 PHY is just attached via RGMII (so the MAC and PCIe parts of these RealTek chips are not used on SBC anyway. Might change soon since more and more SoCs are PCIe equipped). But even on the soon to be released Orange Pi R2 the two RTL8211E are only used as PHY and attached via RGMII (RTD1296 has 3 GbE MACs but only one internal GbE PHY so for the two additional GbE interfaces external PHYs are needed):
  3. UC1701 LCD library

    Hi Vince, Your display luckily doesn't have the Chinese character rom, but does have the regulator. If you plan on powering this from 3 or 3.3V, then you can remove the regulator and bridge R1 with a blob of solder. No need to pay me, I shared a Linux and Arduino library to control the display here: https://github.com/bitbank/uc1701 It's quite easy to get going on the Arduino. Your sketch will start like this: #include <uc1701.h> void setup() { uc1701Init(DC_PIN, RESET_PIN, LED_PIN, bFlip180, bInvert); uc1701Fill(0); } void loop() { uc1701WriteString(0, 0, "Hello World!", false, FONT_NORMAL); }
  4. NanoPi K1 Plus to be released soon

    provided by RTL8211E like on the NanoPi A64 or the Banana Pi M64
  5. OPi Zero GPS ntpserver

    Works on a OPI One too :-) https://forum.armbian.com/topic/703Q3-solved-orangepi-one-1-pps-ntp-server/ Thanx for the guide /Bingo
  6. Another question Does anyone know if 1-PPS support is enabled in the NTPdaemon that is in the armbian repos ? I suppose it is , since the OPIZ description doesn't mention that one have to build an own ntpd. But if anyone knows for sure, it would be a nice info /Bingo
  7. Yes. Changes to packaging method upstream. It is getting fixed. Check my last commits to developmebt branch for quick fix. Wrote on mobile
  8. Today
  9. UC1701 LCD library

    Larry, I just received my JLX12864G-08602 displays and was wondering if you would want to help me get this set up to work with my pro mini? Maybe a simple sample Arduino sketch to demonstrate printing a variable and blanking the screen. I looked around the web and I haven't been able to find any examples or library's (or even a wiring diagram). I would be more than happy to compensate you for your time for helping get this going. Regards, Vince
  10. Building a dev-kernel currently seems to fail to produce something like "linux-dtb-dev-sunxi_5.41_armhf.deb" in /build/output/debs/ Any idea why?
  11. Preparing for Ubuntu 18.04

    What about not removing stuff but configuring backends: https://insights.ubuntu.com/2017/07/05/quick-and-easy-network-configuration-with-netplan
  12. Preparing for Ubuntu 18.04

    We have to remove this https://insights.ubuntu.com/2017/12/01/ubuntu-bionic-netplan and use network manager/ifconfig
  13. You're talking about Parallels and show a crashdump mentioning Virtualbox (org.virtualbox.kext.*). In any case what should we do here with some virtualization software running on macOS crashing due to some USB related bug(s)?
  14. Doohh ... User error - 1PPS wasn't enabled on the GPS. The OPIO Kernel works fine w. 1-PPS $ sudo ppstest /dev/pps0 trying PPS source "/dev/pps0" found PPS source "/dev/pps0" ok, found 1 source(s), now start fetching data... source 0 - assert 1524154630.697340907, sequence: 6793 - clear 0.000000000, sequence: 0 source 0 - assert 1524154631.697261112, sequence: 6794 - clear 0.000000000, sequence: 0 source 0 - assert 1524154632.697166525, sequence: 6795 - clear 0.000000000, sequence: 0 source 0 - assert 1524154633.697084896, sequence: 6796 - clear 0.000000000, sequence: 0 source 0 - assert 1524154634.697017267, sequence: 6797 - clear 0.000000000, sequence: 0 source 0 - assert 1524154635.696924515, sequence: 6798 - clear 0.000000000, sequence: 0 source 0 - assert 1524154636.696832013, sequence: 6799 - clear 0.000000000, sequence: 0 source 0 - assert 1524154637.696757469, sequence: 6800 - clear 0.000000000, sequence: 0 Ps: The 1-PPS ticks are NOT from the GPS yet , it was from a STM32-Bluepill where i just whipped up a quick 1-PPS pulse /Bingo *** Original post *** Gents I would like to use a OrangePI One as a NTP Server w. 1-PPS support. And i'm using this "recipe" for a OPIZ https://forum.armbian.com/topic/4944-opi-zero-gps-ntpserver/ But i seem to have some problems getting the 1-PPS to work on the OPIO. I'm not experienced in the new Linux IO setup (Those overlays) , and i could miss something there. I was hoping that the kernel for the OPIO had the same stuff enabled as the OPIZ (according to the url above) Could this be an "IO Overlay" problem ?? Setup: I have downloaded the "latest Debian server image , and it runs fine.

  15. http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/NanoPi_K1_Plus RPi 3 form factor like their K2, maximum DRAM (2GB), Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi with onboard aerial provided by RTL8189ETV, still using their own/new eMMC socket. According to schematics and their Github repo a SY8106A voltage regulator is used which is great news since then it's possible to clock the H5 well above 1.3 GHz.
  16. wouldn't it make sense to figure out why you lose connection instead of finding a fallback for a situation which might differ from time to time on which state you lost contact to the SD-Card. So is it a hardware issue - means that the physically lost connection (cause the SD-Card connector is damaged) or cause your cards gets corrupted due to bad quality or to much writing to it that they get destroyed by your usage? There must be a reason why you lost connection to your card. And figuring out why that happens might be solve your problem better not?
  17. As some of you noticed, I sometimes use asciinema to show people fast what's need to be done to solve something on command line immediately.. For those didn't see that, asciinema can be installed easily with 'sudo apt-get install asciinema'. Then, by using 'asciinema rec' everything whats typed into your shell is recorded an uploaded to their page (it's also possible to save it on your own web-server or local only etc but since I never used it). I would like to use this more.. but cause at the moment there's no possibility to show this like twitter or youtube videos it's not that workable for me.. (cause most people wouldn't klick on a link, if there isn't at least a preview what you get). They have some APIs which could be integrated into the website. Do we have a possibility to make it workable on the forum? APIs they support: oEmbed Open Graph Twitter Card I had a quick google look if Invision support one of these APIs but I didn't saw it. Maybe @Igor who deals more with the software is able to find a solution. Or saw what I missed. Edit: A possibility is to use the provided png and use it as a link.. but it's more work to do.. so.. provide the link add https://asciinema.org/a/1yFyS7p6VtLxj0BZRXOwYeAOB.png (*png) and then left the original link to the picture..
  18. no 4k resolution

    armbian-config -> system and security settings -> switch to alternative kernels
  19. A64 and the 3.10 kernel

    for testing I did try the Banana Pi M64 (work in progress) Image ( https://dl.armbian.com/bananapim64/Debian_stretch_next_nightly.7z ) on the NanoPi A64, because the BPi M64 also should have the RTL8211E Ethernet-Chip. But RTL8211E isnt recognized and a USB-Ethernet doesnt work after configuration. Only a USB-WiFi Dongle did work to connect to the net. So the BPi M64 image isnt as much useable as the one for the Pine64 on the NanoPi A64
  20. Hi I would like to install armbian on my Mecool M8s pro w which has an ARM-Cortex-A53 (Amlogic S905W) processor. Would anyone be able to please let me know how to do this or give me a broad idea of steps I should take as a beginner? Thank you Fred
  21. I have completely rewritten my first post with detailed instructions on how to install Ayufan's Armbian Ubuntu without needing a separate PC.
  22. Red Screen

    Debian work well, but Ubunto don't work, remain red screen only.
  23. This seems like a really simple problem, but I can't find any pointers on any forums. I am running a NanoPiNEO2 (Allwinner H5) using the latest Armbian build DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu DISTRIB_RELEASE=16.04 DISTRIB_CODENAME=xenial DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS" I am trying all ways to save power. For most of the time, I do not need to use the Ethernet interface (I am using the USB interfaces for comms). I have tried all the obvious commands such as ifdown, and explored ethtool, but nothing I do makes any difference to the current consumption of the device. I expect i am missing something obvious - any help gratefully accepted.
  24. MickMake

  25. Newbie to tinker here (though not to linux).. tried lots of images out and the armbian ones were the ones i liked best at the moment. Unfortunately not all my USB hardware is supported so I thought I'd try and build the missing modules. (It's a wacom tablet I want to use, supported perfectly in most recent mainstream linuxes.) That's where I got stuck. Is it possible? closest i found in the docs was https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Advanced-Features/#how-to-build-a-wireless-driver which starts (quote) armbian-config -> install kernel headers exit I'd love to install kernel headers That's usually one of the first packages I install. But that's not a bash command with the -> thing unless > is a strange command line switch and not a redirect , also $ sudo armbian-config doesn't give me the option to install kernel headers and I tried every menu item! And the most obvious attempt $ sudo apt-get install linux-headers gives me a list of available packages, but apparently I need to specify the kernel version, and $ uname -r tells me my kernel is 4.4.73-rockchip which isn't one of the ones supported. So I am stuck. Can anyone help? Thanks!
  26. Yesterday
  27. no 4k resolution

    Even if its obvious for the more experienced armbian users.. Instead of just a got it. a small how to get there would be nice...
  28. I have also added PR https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/934 Which is a dependency to my howto, due to default image size issues.
