  1. After talking about "the crazy idea" of use of this boards like light desktops in other thread with @JoeyBeelinkX2 : I start reading about ways to improve the performance. In this way I find an alternative scheduler specially conceived by responsiveness of desktop use, is called MuQSS http://ck-hack.blogspot.com.es/2016/10/muqss-multiple-queue-skiplist-scheduler.html I also find a kernel ready to use on x86 architectures (includes de MuQSS scheduler instead of CFS and BFQ instead of CFQ, while also adding more tweaks for responsiveness like proper QoS over TCP to avoid TCP congestion): https://liquorix.net/#install And my final questions: Can this kernel improve the Desktop performance or responsiveness? Can be included on the Desktop images?
  2. All this stuff run under old kernels and proprietary drivers and blobs. I'm agree with you about the slow response running Chrome (Chromiun) under armbian and the performance you can obtain using the same or equivalent Chrome under Android. But is a matter of freedom, real freedom, vs a limited but good user experience. This video is recorded using kazam https://launchpad.net/kazam on an Orange Pi One (only 512MB RAM) at the same time I use the system to show his capacities. Is not an intel Skull Canyon NUC http://amzn.to/2qR3YjY but can be useful in some scenarios.
  3. You can install directly using armbian-config. sudo armbian-config Last entry on the first menu "Softy" And inside this menu mark "Syncthing" * Sorry but the snapshots are partly in Spanish.
  4. Have you try this? https://howchoo.com/g/njy4zdm3mwy/how-to-run-a-raspberry-pi-cluster-with-docker-swarm
  5. I use a BeelinkX2 as a light/cheap desktop replacement, mainly because is the best way to manage my others headless ARM boards by SSH sessions. Sometimes I perform flac to mp3 conversions in this machine without worrying about heat, as long time ago say @tkaiser : H3 is not an animal or a human being that gets hurt by temperatures exceeding 40°C. It's a chip rated for up to 125°C → Related to CPU throtling in the past I use some CPU desktop pluging monitor on Ubuntu but I d'ont know if working in this case: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/quantal/indicator-cpufreq/ Also in the past I use on ODROID boards cpufrequtils like showed in this post: http://odroid.us/mediawiki/index.php?title=Use_cpufrequtils_to_Adjust_Processor_Settings
  6. And this is a BeelinX2 using internal memory (nobody ask, but I like H3 SoC) and Legacy Desktop armbian: manuti@beelinkx2:~$ 7za b 7-Zip (A) 9.20 Copyright (c) 1999-2010 Igor Pavlov 2010-11-18 p7zip Version 9.20 (locale=es_ES.UTF-8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,4 CPUs) RAM size: 1000 MB, # CPU hardware threads: 4 RAM usage: 850 MB, # Benchmark threads: 4 Dict Compressing | Decompressing Speed Usage R/U Rating | Speed Usage R/U Rating KB/s % MIPS MIPS | KB/s % MIPS MIPS 22: 1379 301 445 1342 | 35621 393 816 3213 23: 1378 308 455 1404 | 34656 388 816 3171 24: 1354 317 459 1456 | 34350 391 815 3186 25: 1069 272 449 1221 | 31443 365 809 2956 ---------------------------------------------------------------- Avr: 300 452 1356 384 814 3132 Tot: 342 633 2244
  7. I do not have deep knowledge but only as user in my humble opinion I can say a couple of things. I think the XU4 is a good board but you need to consider something: In the last ODROID Magazine the CEO from Hardkernel talked about 2 or 3 new boards this year, so ... maybe the XU4 go to a second place in the Hardkernel catalogue and support & development. I'm very surprised in general with the ratio power/price you can have with Orange Pi boards (always with armbian OS) maybe you can start with one of this, like Orange Pi Plus 2E.
  8. Is not tested with current armbian, but in the past the solution is more or less this: sudo apt-get -y install xorg lightdm xfce4 tango-icon-theme gnome-icon-theme sudo reboot And take into account all the Know issues noted in the download page of your board: https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-zero-2-h3/ Better use the oficial desktop image provided by @Igor
  9. Yes, after reading some of your "real" benchmarks I'm starting to be very agnostic with all this kind of stuff. Recently I saw a sysbench thats is really mind blowing: http://sirlagz.net/2016/10/27/exagear-benchmarking-part-1/
  10. Yes, I know but I never think in F2FS as an option in GNU/Linux system and finding two benchmarks close in time I'm thinking in take a look to all this numbers.
  11. I don't want to be polemic but the last Phoronix test shows a different figures related to F2FS http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=btrfs-f2fs-multi&num=1
  12. I play with Lakka.tv with sound and good frame rate! Is a on RC state http://le.builds.lakka.tv/
  13. Is on the path to implement this feature on armbian?
  14. Same spirit here! The poweroff by button is only for been a little bit lazy and I always unplug my devices when I finish to work or mingle with it. Thanks for your help!
