  1. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    Nah, why waste so much space? The most efficient way to do it looks like that: $ zcat Whatever_image_img.gz | sudo dd of=/dev/sdX bs=4M && sync For xz compressed images use xzcat obviously.

    Start with a 3.14 image and the dtb file that I'd linked to earlier in the thread.
  3. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Only the latter. Changing root's password and creating a user account has been compulsory for quite a while now on first boot.
  4. ROCK64

    I noticed the issue a few months ago, and, as the ARMv7 binaries produced the expected results in AARCH32 mode, I looked at the source and IIRC it was all about optimized assembly routines not present in the AARCH64 version. edit: In case I'm misremembering, it could have been about cpuminer results.

    This stuff used to work fine in the now discontinued S905-only VegaS95 images with the 3.14.79 kernel. Definitely worth bringing back, at least for S905 owners!

    Thanks @TonyMac32 , that was exactly the gist of my question
  7. rk3288 alternative boards (cheap tv boxes).

    Ugoos boxes are Linux ready OOTB, what about the topical cheapos though? I received one of those about a month ago but haven't even had time to unpack it

    Thanks for the link, my image version is probably: Armbian_5.27_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_mate_20170323 edit: Yes, that was the right config, WiFi works too. Thanks @balbes150

    It's not present in that image (3.14.29 kernel) Could you provide a link?

    We're talking about a standard Armbian 5.27 Ubuntu image from about a month ago, and yes, Mini M8S has 100M ethernet whereas the others have gigabit.

    @balbes150 What's the recommended dtb file for M8S mini S905? I've been testing a relatively recent desktop image + gxbb_p200_2G which works fine on both MXQ Pro+ and Beelink MiniMXIII but M8S ends up with a non-functioning LAN. The image that I normally use (3.14.79 based) + the old dtb format M8S file, brings up wired LAN just fine so it looks like a wrong dtb file. I think it shouldn't matter the same image ran on those other boxes I'd mentioned?
  12. preview Asus Tinkerboard

    Here's gl4es, likewise from France: Even though nothing beyond OpenGL 1.5 is supported, it should be fun to test, and besides, you might be the first to try it on a Tinker Board.

    The way you phrased the question means the answer probably entails just one step, namely, running /root/

    Nice to see it already has Android 5.1 so running termux should be useful/fun.

    @James KingdonI've just realised the q8-rk3288 wiki mentions the 2 boxes from @mdel's first post. Which implies it should probably have worked OOTB?
