  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. 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
  5. 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
  6. Today
  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. 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
  9. 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)?
  10. 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?
  11. 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..
  12. no 4k resolution

    armbian-config -> system and security settings -> switch to alternative kernels
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. I have completely rewritten my first post with detailed instructions on how to install Ayufan's Armbian Ubuntu without needing a separate PC.
  16. Red Screen

    Debian work well, but Ubunto don't work, remain red screen only.
  17. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. Yesterday
  20. 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.
  21. aplay -l : no soundcards found

    This worked.
  22. PCduino3nano deprecated?

    Armbian supporting way too many boards and download statistics telling that this is a device not that popular. End user support ended, we won't do any testing on the hardware but since u-boot and kernel packages are per board family and we most probably will never give up Allwinner A20 you're fully supported. Just keep in mind that from time to time u-boot + kernel updates bricked some boards and that nothing is tested on the specific board so simply be careful with those updates (use armbian-config to block the updates and do an SD card backup first prior to updating from time to time).
  23. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Test image Debian + KODI-18. https://yadi.sk/d/goZiDfto3UV8UU To run KODI-18 , you need to perform additional configuration of the system. 1. you need to remove the package “pulseaudio” 2. Switch to the test repository (disable all other repositories and enable "test" in the sourceslist file). Then install a new version of libc6-2.27 from the test repository). After these steps, you can use KODI-18 as usual.
  24. Orange pi zero2+ random hangs

    It crashed while I was writing! System is still up but network interface is unreachable, I tried with serial and it's very slow. I managed to enter and htop says tath it's all ok but if I look at my journalctl there's something new: Can someone tell me if these lines that I found are someway related to my problem? Now I lowered the CPU frequency to max 816MHz ad started up again....yeee

  26. Rock64 nightly image

    Yesterday I downloaded the latest "Debian desktop" image (it should be 5.42) linked here https://www.armbian.com/rock64/ but I'm still having the error reported below. I have never been able to run a version of Armbian on my Rock 64 (1GB version) . I'm currently using Armbian (Debian) on an Orange Pi+ without any problem. What's the problem?

  28. MAC Address with compiled image

    I had a similar issue with the next branch for a NanoPi NEO. There was a missing device tree entry which was fixed in https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/f6c6e05b8e09c843f9389a176d819349db0de389 Perhaps it's a similar issue?
