  1. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    After a reboot of the box: root@amlogic:~# for i in {0..7};do cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu$i/cpufreq/scaling_governor;done cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu2/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu3/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu4/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu5/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu6/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu7/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory I can't see cpufreq module to load, hmm.

Problem solved. I think one of the package dependency messed up with uInitrd and initrd.img-4.13.0-rc7-next-20170901-amlogics905x.

    @Jens Bauer Sure, i'd have loved to put a bigger heatsink and a small fan, if that helps to achieve higher speeds. But now as @tkaiser mentions it, i can recall the Amlogic cheating revelations i read at CNX-soft thoug! Here is what i got from StabilityTester: Done testing stability by using both ondemand and performance scaling governors: Frequency: 667000 Voltage: 3300000 Success: 1 Result: 0.0048034 Frequency: 1000000 Voltage: 3300000 Success: 1 Result: 0.0048034 Frequency: 1200000 Voltage: 3300000 Success: 1 Result: 0.0048034 Although the thermal readings doesn't work on this box: Testing frequency 1200000 Soc temp:cat: /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp: No such file or directory Soc temp: CPU Freq: 1200000 CPU Core: 3300000 cat: /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp: No such file or directory Soc temp: CPU Freq: 1200000 CPU Core: 3300000 cat: /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp: No such file or directory Anyway, i guess i'm also subject to their cheating since i can get max 1.2Ghz even with all small cores disabled.

    Yep When all cores enabled, it's 4 x 1.512Ghz + 4 x 1Ggz according to lshw -c cpu. root@amlogic:~# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies 100000 250000 500000 667000 1000000 1200000 1512000 root@amlogic:~# I've only seen big cores at 1512Mhz even when i disable the small 4 cores. How can we get 2Ghz?

    I'm also testing tightvncserver and there are issues with LXDE. Mate-session works, but it can't automatically resize screen size. Also, when i used the box as a vncviewer, the resizing doesn't work, i get a black area at bottom for instance when i choose full screen. I'd like to use one of the boxes as a vnc/spice client and another as a server
  6. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Since i got a couple of S905X boxes at home, i gave Nexbox A95X S905X a try, boots with multiple DTB, but only meson-gxbb-nexbox-a95x.dtb seems to be able to boot into ldm/mate. But there is no response from USB mouse nor keyboard. As USB is supported now, what could this be? EDIT: images being tested are from 20170907.
  7. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    Is anyone running Docker aarch64/arm64v8 images on this? I'm able to run armhf/arm32v7 images, but all the arm64v8 images crash. According to 'uname' it's 64-bits kernel so i wonder what the issue is with the Docker.

    If possible, please upload the latest image here:

    I can't get your updated image @balbes150 since Yandex Disk seems to have issues
  10. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    Awesome! Will try this tonight already! Another question: every time i upgrade, i loose the full setup i have on my SD card? Now that i've installed Docker, LXC etc i'd like to avoid it.
  11. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    Copy to SD card? You mean extracting the image onto an SD card i.e using e.g dd? Here is what i did: 1. I downloaded your image from that YT video link 2. xz -d <imagename>.img.xz 3. dd if=<imagename>.img of=/dev/sdc bs=16M oflag=direct 5. Copied the correct dtb.img to the root of /BOOT 4. Took the SD card out of my USB adapter and inserted into H96 Pro+ 5. Booted up to see the H96 initial image, then to loose the output on HDMI/TV.

    Is this SW accelerated X? Do you have a link so that i can give it a try as well?
  13. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    i have 2 of these boxes and my ultimate goal is to use one as a thin client to connect to a Spice server and another as a headless server. but i've read there is no Mali driver avail. i could NOT boot with

    Thanks a lot. Bought a cheap SD card reader and was able to put 4.13 server image inside an SD card and finally: [root@thinkpadx230 susinths]# ssh root@'s password: You are required to change your password immediately (root enforced) ____ ___ / ___|/ _ \__ ____ ____ __ \___ \ (_) \ \/ /\ \/ /\ \/ / ___) \__, |> < > < > < |____/ /_//_/\_\/_/\_\/_/\_\ Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.32 user-built Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS 4.13.0-rc7-next-20170901-amlogics905x System load: 1.01 0.41 0.15 Up time: 2 min Memory usage: 3 % of 2860MB IP: Usage of /: 3% of 58G Last login: Fri Sep 1 17:29:29 2017 from Changing password for root.

I'd like to use an old SSD drive with this device. Also, it seems H96 Pro+ has 4 USB 2.0 ports, 2 hidden inside. EDIT: have to admit i feel like a kid now after getting this to work! Love the 3G RAM on this box+ 1GbE. It's using 6-7W when i run stress-ng --cpu 8 --io 2 --vm 1 --vm-bytes 1G --timeout 300s. Really nice!
  15. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    I've tried with 3 different USB sticks, 4, 8 and 64GB in sizes with the same issue: failing to find and mount the rootfs. Kernel 3.14 images don't boot at all, while 4.13 rc drops into Busybox emergency shell and keyboard doesn't react (tried with 3 different keyboards too). I plan on sourcing an SD card reader to test booting from SD card.
