  2. I'm using your last mate version on my m8s, but I have to use the m8s plus dtb to see it booting. Wifi is not working, but luckly, for my current needs, it's not a big problem. The real issue I have foud is that when i try to change the ip to static, amending /etc/network/interfaces, on reboot I've no internet. For now, I solved with a walkaround, editing /etc/rc.local and adding these lines: ifdown eth0 sleep 1 ifup eth0 My idea would be to install your build on the nand to use the box as download server, but I've a couple of questions: - is it possible to install on s812 nand? - when you'll push a new release, how will be possible to upgrade keeping the configuration?
  3. Of course, consider following line in drivers/video/videomodes.c char *p = getenv("video-mode"); Please note that video drivers are loaded very quickly, before U-Boot command line, so variable has to exist before. This can be achieved by setting variable and save it with "saveenv" command.
  4. Using "truncate" with the "endsect" number shown by fdisk after gparted shrinking. Here is the sequence : sudo modprobe loop sudo losetup -f sudo losetup /dev/loop0 myimage.img sudo partprobe /dev/loop0 sudo gparted /dev/loop0 sudo losetup -d /dev/loop0 fdisk -l myimage.img sudo truncate --size=$[(endsect+1)*512] myimage.img
  5. Could you provide your cat /proc/cmdline output ? There might a log=X in your current boot command line that defines another loglevel.
  6. Today
  7. Updated but untested: - HDMI out should work - USB as well
  8. fourth topic in the searchlist. seeems like a good starting point, whenever its not from the armbianforum. From the known issues: TV Out doesn’t work as expected (only PAL/NTSC resolution, overscanning, no h3disp support, notes for OPi Zero)
  9. Perhaps when I get home I shall try the Xenial image, and see how it goes.
  10. I am not get it working. Now I am switching gpio from user-space side.
  11. Following up on my previous post: SSD read and write performance is above 200MB/s - can not be the reason for slow write performance. root@espressobin:~# hdparm -tT /dev/sda /dev/sda: Timing cached reads: 1128 MB in 2.00 seconds = 563.38 MB/sec Timing buffered disk reads: 678 MB in 3.01 seconds = 225.51 MB/sec root@espressobin:~# hdparm -tT --direct /dev/sda /dev/sda: Timing O_DIRECT cached reads: 414 MB in 2.00 seconds = 206.64 MB/sec Timing O_DIRECT disk reads: 634 MB in 3.01 seconds = 210.87 MB/sec root@espressobin:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/ssd/var/cloud/afp/tempfile bs=1M count=1024 conv=fdatasync,notrunc 1024+0 records in 1024+0 records out 1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB, 1.0 GiB) copied, 5.11181 s, 210 MB/s root@espressobin:~# echo 3 | sudo tee /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches 3 root@espressobin:~# dd if=/mnt/ssd/var/cloud/afp/tempfile of=/dev/null bs=1M count=1024 1024+0 records in 1024+0 records out 1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB, 1.0 GiB) copied, 3.90237 s, 275 MB/s iperf3 results reveal that the network is fine, but that there are issues if espressobin receives data: MacPro:~ admin$ iperf3 -c Connecting to host, port 5201 [ 5] local port 49537 connected to port 5201 [ ID] Interval Transfer Bitrate [ 5] 0.00-1.00 sec 27.6 MBytes 232 Mbits/sec [ 5] 1.00-2.00 sec 43.4 MBytes 364 Mbits/sec [ 5] 2.00-3.00 sec 45.8 MBytes 384 Mbits/sec [ 5] 3.00-4.00 sec 45.2 MBytes 379 Mbits/sec [ 5] 4.00-5.00 sec 47.0 MBytes 394 Mbits/sec [ 5] 5.00-6.00 sec 45.5 MBytes 382 Mbits/sec [ 5] 6.00-7.00 sec 45.4 MBytes 380 Mbits/sec [ 5] 7.00-8.00 sec 46.2 MBytes 387 Mbits/sec [ 5] 8.00-9.00 sec 48.4 MBytes 405 Mbits/sec [ 5] 9.00-10.00 sec 48.4 MBytes 407 Mbits/sec - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - [ ID] Interval Transfer Bitrate [ 5] 0.00-10.00 sec 443 MBytes 371 Mbits/sec sender [ 5] 0.00-10.00 sec 442 MBytes 371 Mbits/sec receiver iperf Done.

Probably network related tasks need to be redistributed among espressobin cpu´s. I would like to test again with mainline kernel once available.
  12. That was the extent of the logs. There's nothing in syslog or /var/log/messages It's NFSv4 I've had no end of trouble tonight too... not sure hat triggered it. Been getting the same Error 5 sometimes and a File Locked error too The server is a Synology DS215j I've just switched the mounts to NFSv3 and it seems to be working again
  13. Relying on big.LITTLE designs from Android TV boxes or tablets is a great idea if you're a developer and want to understand how stuff works. As an example: Take the hour and read through this to understand why 'real world performance' will be shitty as hell while specs look great: (of course no one will do since people looking at specs already actively reject reality. Specs don't matter, settings and software support situation is way more important. Good luck buying Android devices without support)
  14. Anyone looked into this already: Powering off unused PHYs and stuff like that might result in impressive savings...
  15. Banana Pi uses a SHITTY DC-IN connector. Problems expected! Of course Armbian images work, I tested Banana Pi legacy and most recent mainline image on thursday for some performance comparisons: If this image wouldn't work as expected we would have ten threads a day reporting this!
  16. I am new to OPi+2E & Armbian combo. When booted up, all outgoing traffic is fine (though speed is very slow) but no incoming traffic gets successful, e.g. SSH and Ping. I tried DHCP and Static IPs. I believe there is no firewall running. I connected to WiFi through armbian-config and WiFi also connected but no incoming on either interface. If I disconnect LAN cable while WiFi is still connected, incoming traffic works on WiFi. As soon as I connect LAN cable again, incoming stops working on both interfaces. Same behaviour on Raspbian and Armbian. Is there some firmware I need to update? Help will be appreciated.
  17. Start with the latest version, then let's debug.
  18. Hi. Is it possible to toggle usb power on Orange PI Zero? What does PL2 do?
  19. Yesterday
  20. Hello,I have a bananapi m2+ I would like to install kodi version 17 to the standard repositories is the only version of 15 which doesn't suit me. tell me how to install the 17 version? I'm new to Linux and don't understand much,if there is a possibility lay out the user manual which would have helped with the installation. I want to install on server version armbian and that would be after the launch of the banana pi automatically instead of a desktop was loaded kodi interface, so it is possible to do?
  21. My board finally escaped customs, I should have it late next week.
  22. Hi balbes150 , This the case : Tv box name : MXV S805 Smart Media Box ( 1gb ram and TF card , Power Button on top and Reset Button on bottom ) I had test : Both work fine . No Bluetooth but maybe are like that or have to learn how enable??? The real thing is that I want to use Linux and I had test : Armbian_5.27_S805_Debian_jessie_3.10.33_xfce_20170324.img.xz Armbian_5.27_S805_Ubuntu_xenial_3.10.33_server_20170324.img.xz I dd the image to microSD ( Something I found , the BOOT partition have not boot flags , I added with gparted ) and do the reset start and the screen show S805 logo them ... poweroff. Begin the dtb files testing get one from folder dtb-3.10.33 paste in the main BOOT partition and renamed dtb.img . But always the same boots logo and them poweroff . And the logo shows only on the Xenial-server image , Jessie-xfce not show... If you could help me and others that have same box?? Thanks! for the codes!
  23. You can try my image, see:
  24. Thank you for your fast reply. I kinda got it working. I thought it's enough to set the uart speed once but you need to make it on every boot. So I wrote startscript what sets the uart speed to 1500000 bit/s and it's working without timeouts. It's not my goal yet because the AP6212a datasheet says that it's possible to work with 3000000 bit/s. Unfortunately I'm not able to set this speed. Furthermore Bluteooth audio streaming is not running very stable. I know it from Raspberry Pi with 4.x kernel and it was really easy and smooth. It seems that it's a problem connected to 3.4 kernel. Can you give me any info about how to activate blutooth on 4.x kernel? I already tried to make it work but with 4.x mainline release you don't have this fex file to activate the hardware modules. I got stucked with building a new device tree. Maybe you can give me some more info about it? Do you know when a 4.x kernel will be officially available for Nano Pi Neo Air? Thanks a lot Regards Bernhard
  25. I'm with @TonyMac32 I wasn't about to clean up for you geeks before hand. I think it's funny how completely independent desks can look so similar. I have a hardware buddy who's desk looks almost exactly like yours. Just a buncha stuff being worked on with a clear space right in the middle of it all xD. Also I have a very similar spool of solder, literally cracks and all. How long you been working on that, like a decade? Don't worry about the mismatched monitors. Mine is so much worse. I'm not ashamed though. Would you believe me if I told you that 95% of my work bench was free? Honestly the only thing I paid for was the TV and middle monitor (<$100 for both) and the most expensive thing was the soldering iron. Never skimp on a soldering iron. Otherwise everything else was free, gifted or bartered. Even the desktop. Just because my stuff is cheap, doesn't mean I am or my skills are though I just have a big family/community and like to think that from digital to physical, I'm running on Open Source. + Dog Tax. I guess I paid full price for that trusty mutt.
  26. So recently I got a 5 inch HDMI display with touch in the mail. They got drivers for the raspberry pi, and i got it working on the raspberry pi without a problem. Now I was wondering if would work on my banana pi running armbian legacy kernel. I have tried installing and following the original instructions, but i can't get the touch controller to work, it will display on the screen, but touch is not working. The resolution also seems a little bit off. Allthough i tried setting it to 800x480. I know there are other post around this topic, but most of them didn't made it any more clear to me what i could possibly do. And some that did still didn't work. So yeah, does anyone have any tips or tricks? or maybe got it working themselves?
  27. Try to recreate those mount points, but it's more like systemd bug.
  28. Glad to hear that and thanks for sharing. Often people tend to forget share their final solution
