  2. Hello, First please excuse me for being not learned enough to do it without asking stupid questions. Here is my goal: Build Armbian (debian jessie) image with some packages included into it, include some web content and scripts into image, run my own script at firstboot to configure apache/mysql etc. So everything to start working out of the box after first boot. I read a little and saw userpatches/ is responsible for custom configuration, but got no idea how to proceed further. For example if I want to install mariadb what should I do? apt-get install mariadb (it says this file was executed in chroot environment) Please if possible guide me in right direction or just post an example.
  3. Sorry I have to correct myself, this is a peripheral register, I am sure this is not documented in the Cortex A7 manual because it is H3 specific. (SoC are built with arm cores + peripherals added by the SoC producer using a System Integration Tool [for example Intel Qsys]. These Componets are connected using a special Bus [Intel: Avalon Bus]). I just checked the H3 Datasheet, but the only reference I found is in the memory mapping TVE 0x01E0 0000---0x01E0 FFFF The datasheet itself ony describes the TVE_Clock_Register which is located at offset 0x120. EDIT: Seems like I got my hands on the wrong R40 Datasheet. I found the register description! This picture describes the register flags in binary format from 31 downto 0: Hope this helps to correct your overscanning issues!
  4. But if I power the LCD and I2C module with 3.3V, it shouldn't output 5V, right?
  5. Today
  6. Thanks, Is there any way to enable and use it? I know how to extract the fex file from bin, but don't know which parameter should be set to enable it.
  7. mm ... that NanoPi deserves a checking. I have two Orange NAS devices working well with Samsung EVO 250G mSATA devices (I had to replace one Orange Pi Zero because it was extremely slow ... it is in my checking basket to see what happened). Then, I needed another with higher storage capacity, so I added a Seagate 2TB 2.5 inches mobile hard disk attached with the official Orange Pi SATA cable. It seems to work very well ... BUT ... In my configuration I need to attach a Raspberry Pi Zero as an OTG slave to the machine in some particular time. I do the same with the other NAS devices without any issue, but in the moment I connect the Raspberry Pi machine to this particular NAS, the hard disk makes a hard break and some partitions are lost. It seems there are some problem with power supply distribution on this NAS ... I will check what other option I have to avoid this problem. It happens no matter what USB port is used.

    How do we going about doing this?
  9. Yeah, I was going to say when I saw the list of four images needed why not just re-use the battery ones that are already in use... I also prefer the blue pinecone armbian logo... looks very slick. When you say too big... are you meaning file size? 3MB being too big for the time that you see the logo?

  11. Well ... there are different references about how SD cards behave in different scenarios (SD, not SDD). The people that has been worried about that is the one uses Arduinos and other types of microcontroller based devices, as they have more "precise" and "narrow" working environments that computer users ... so they try to squeeze the last micro ampere to rescue some hours of battery or to be able to work will just some solar energy. This is from a NXP community doubt regarding SD card consumption. It has a lot of details about their particular problem, but the following paragraph is a good abstract (it is talking about computing cycles): This is from an Arduino application. There "somebody" describes an online comparison where the Lexar 8GB SDHC Card consumes "about 25%-30% of the other" ones. I have been trying to find that "online comparison" but the Internet it is very big :-) Then it seems that really there is a difference in the power consumption with SD cards (I suppose that also with the SDD disks, but the power supply for an SDD disk go through a different path that for an SD card, so the differences must not to be so critical as to make the booting to fail). But as others (not me) were able to make the 2G-IOT machine to work with 16GB cards, maybe those cards flash controllers do a better job taking care of power. Or really, the synchronization in the RDA Bios has some flaws avoiding several cards not to communicate correctly with the machine. On the power supply. Yes, I know that good quality cables and good quality power sources are paramount. So it is right to quit the power problem ensuring a quality source of power (I don't say 5A or something like that, ... just the needed power). However, the SD card problem go beyond the external power supply.
  12. Well nuts; I didn't search enough. The workaround detailed here: ...looks like it's working for me.
  13. I've got the RTL8723bs working using a temporary build of 4.12 ...
  14. Hello, to all OrangePI PC enthusiasts. Well I'm in the community of those who definitely underestimated the Orange of the PI, but let me share my burden :-) for the fun of it. It started with the camera- gc2035 and vfe_v4l2 modules. Had to try a couple of images until I got it by luck I guess - after that I found out that every image I use is not capable of having a FTDI device connected to "ANY" USB Port (OK, you got me, I didn't try the microUSB and I won't). After that I tried no matter what I wanted to connect to USB it was not even recognized. Now I'm back in changing/swapping around Images until I found one that let me plug anything I want into the USB Ports and it worked (It was Ubuntu xenial5.25), but in exhange for that I could not ever get the camera working again. OK-> now I start compiling with the instructions from igors github page and I couldn't compile a single one ??? Now I'm into the vagrant approach, still doing something while typing here, let's see. My question here is to be precise and focused on the topic: Is there an image out there which has both? The Cam and the USB working together or is it bound to some exclusivity? If yes where can I find it, or what do I have to do it to make it? all the best Arminator
  15. Thank you ppl for your help. Now I get something more readable like this: Starting Load/Save RF Kill Switch Status...

  16. Not sure. As I said already, I wanted just understand the procedure, not change it. I remember that there was already a discussion about this on linux-sunxi google group, but I don't remember the conclusion. On the other hand, clock drivers on mainline kernel still evolve. It might even work automatically with upcoming 4.13, but please don't rely on that.
  17. Hi, long time listener (whos ears do not always understand everything that has been said), first time caller, please be gentle. Like a lot of people I am not a linux expert but I am willing to learn. I have the opizero and the 7601 wifi chip and with the ubuntu legacy kernel the chip worked great and was giving me reasonable wifi speeds (I want to use it as a wireless backup). It worked over multiple reboots until... I did the apt upgrade and the ra0 driver has disappeared and I cannot seem to get it back. the wlan0 also has disappeared but I'm not really fussed about that in this posting I understand that the drivers have been disabled in 5.2.5?? How exactly do I work with the script below? how do I run this, and will this be what I am looking for, since there seems to be some issues with 7601 or 7601U Should I go back to the version that was working, and never do an apt-upgrade? If I should do this, then what would be the offending item that causes me problems in the upgrade? is this something that I can use or will I have to specifically look out for any network drivers type issue when I have packages that need upgrading. Thanks a ton for all the work that you guys do here, I really appreciate the fact that you guys enable me to use a $10 computer as a wireless server (until I upgrade )
  18. I remembered this: So GPIO related issues in u-boot would explain broken Ethernet when legacy kernel relies on powering GMAC from u-boot. Can you test SATA too? This commit has a list of boards with SATA powered by GPIO:;a=commit;h=d7b560e6653b248a1920cbd2c5ac393d42e30b61 This commit has a list of boards with GMAC powered by GPIO:;a=commit;h=f5fd78860ab4dbb3bc14ead4f14433f04d6e5cea I assume mainline kernels should be fine mostly if DT has proper config for those pins, and Ethernet can also be tested in u-boot without booting the kernel.
  19. Thanks, that was it. Network is working fine with a new sd-card-image. But when I log in with an normal user (not root) I get: chmod: changing permissions of ‘/etc/update-motd.d/10-header’: Operation not permitted chmod: changing permissions of ‘/etc/update-motd.d/30-sysinfo’: Operation not permitted chmod: changing permissions of ‘/etc/update-motd.d/35-tips’: Operation not permitted chmod: changing permissions of ‘/etc/update-motd.d/40-updates’: Operation not permitted chmod: changing permissions of ‘/etc/update-motd.d/41-armbian-config’: Operation not permitted chmod: changing permissions of ‘/etc/update-motd.d/98-autoreboot-warn’: Operation not permitted
  20. Thank you, good news. Funny to see that 4 days after dumischbaenger's message some new code was submitted Wow, so the code from April 24 just made it into 4.11 which was released 1. May. So I will give 4.11 another shot and see if it starts to work
  21. Hi, im using an Orange Pi one with a camara. I bought it as a set: I've flashed armbian to the SD Card and fired it up. The Problem I have is, that I can't access the camara. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, or the camara is broken. What I've done so far, is following this tutorial: and then red through following article: I've also read some more articles concerning the raspberry, without any success. Also I've tried to access the camara directly with ls -l /dev/video0 "cannot Access '/dev/video0' : No such file or directory" When I looked through the log of motion I found the same problem listed. Also Google has not revealed me an answer. I'm playing around more than 10 hours without any success and I'm starting to despair. Thanks in advance for any help.
  22. I also had this result until we changed the order of the cables : SDA / SCL i2cdetect -y 0 i2cdetect -y 1 Look here: i2c--smbus-and-armbian-linux i2c interface on orange pi lite Orange Pi I2C orange pi / I2C / LCD 2x16 / internetradio Lcdproc also works .... but it requires compiling under the driver: hd44780 Or your own compilation according to this howto
  23. Hi, this is an old post but if It's still of interesst I wrote an Howto regarding compiling media_build:
  24. Hi, This is my first post and I want to say thank you to all the developers and contributors of this great eco system. I've build an image for odroid xu4 with the openmediavault script. This is really great because the software packages and kernel ist up to date and running like a charm. Then I tried to get my DVB card working but that is work in progress. The card is not supported by the 4.9 Kernel and the usual way is to compile the media_build package from hier:,_Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_Drivers But with an cross compiled system as armbian is, the build process against header files isn't working for me. There are posts from other users witch were in the same situation as I am (see reference at the end of my post) I tried against the header files and get an error "scripts/basic/fixdep: 1: scripts/basic/fixdep: Syntax error: "(" unexpected" (see ) I also tried against kernel source from the cross compiling system. I get this error: Any help is apriciated. Alexander ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ It should work like this (but it's not) Compile a kernel on the cross compile computer (where you do the building of the image and the kernel) and compile a kernel _WITHOUT_ dvb- and sound-driver. Otherwise you will get double exported symbols when loading the drivers on the armbian system Install the kernel on the armbian system. Double check if in the /boot directory everything is correct. (On my system the links for kernel wasn't updated) Copy the source code of the running kernel from the building computer to the armbian system. Prepare the media_build directory as mentioned here (on the armbian system),_Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_Drivers Go to the media_build directory an tell media_build were the kernel source is located on the armbian system cd media_build make release make release DIR=/usr/src/your-directory Build media_build ./build Install the new drivers make install Check if everything is prepared to boot the new kernel (depmod -a), and reboot Look into dmesg and /var/log/syslog if there are errors regarding dvb dmesg | grep -i dvb cat /var/log/syslog | grep fail Enjoy
  25. preview A64 column For server images at least DVFS (CPUFreq), THS and Ethernet should be supported (light green) in the kernel version lower than current mainline "stable" version at Alternatively somebody needs to provide a working and tested configuration for the legacy branch based on Pine64 u-boot and kernel.
  26. Hello, my Orange Pi Zero CPU is constantlyrunning at 67-68-70°C (it is the same with/without passive cooler). Is this temperature ok for my board? Can I run it with this temperature long time (weeks, months, years)? Thanks for help.
  27. Board bring up is the less problematic part compared to board maintainance/updates. I still think Armbian needs a testing/beta branch so surprises like broken networking after just an usual 'apt upgrade' on a specific device (I would like to kick out of Armbian rather sooner than later) can be avoided. But I don't see us moving into this direction at all. Quite the opposite.
  28. No, I don't have such behaviour. My SSH session are pretty normal in STA mode.
