  2. Thanks @balbes150, I don't have a working SD card, as i overwritten it. My point is that i can't understand the 5° point of the instructions in the first page: I don't get what do i have to do. Do i need to add the u-boot to the sd card? Before or after writing the armbian .img file? But how do i do it? Is dd fine? Which one do i have to pick, and how do i decide which one? Why do i have to use both USB and SD when i always only used the SD card? Can't i just use the sd card by flashing the Armbian .img as i always did? I do apologize for asking so many question, but i can't get through it.. Many thanks Beppe
  3. Today
  4. Planing to buy external usb card and usb wifi.I dont have enough knowledge to edit DTB.Thank you Balbes150!
  5. I've done this (upgrading just kernel) previously and you need all the other /boot files from the 'new' (5.6-rc7 ) image. I've not worked out which files are key but you need u-boot*, emmc*, *autoscript_* etc. AFAIK, kernel and initrd should be named /boot/zImage & /boot/uInitrd still. Best to make sure the 'new' (5.6-rc7 ) fresh image boots from a fresh sdcard first and then work from that, which you've probably done.
  6. Hi, My x96max is suffering from screen tearing and I would like to update the kernel because it looks like g12a vdec is added in the last release candidate and I would like to test it. Is it possible to install the 5.6-rc7 kernel from the last armbian image to the current emmc installed with 5.6-rc5? I imagine to : - copy /mnt/sdcard/rootfs/lib/modules/5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326-arm-64 to /lib/modules/, - copy /mnt/sdcard/boot/config-5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326-arm-64, System.map-5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326-arm-64, vmlinuz-5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326-arm-64, initrd.img-5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326-arm-64 to /boot - copy /mnt/sdcard/boot/zImage to /boot/zImage-rc7 - copy /mnt/sdcard/boot/uInitrd to /boot/uInitrd-rc7 - copy /mnt/sdcard/boot/dtb/amlogic/meson-g12a-x96-max.dtb to /boot/dtb/amlogic/meson-g12a-x96-max-rc7.dtb (because the files differ) - edit /boot/uEnv.txt - run sudo /usr/sbin/update-initramfs -u -k all Do I miss something? Thx, Laurent.

    I was compiling with different kernel version. installed kernel was different. Anyhow now i dont need to compile it

    s912 has a big heat sink on it but still it become hot. what about the heating problem in s905x3? and armbian on s905x3. till now my experience is very good on s905x3 board.

    You mean first extract the dts file of this tvbox while running on andriod and then extract the wifi settings from dts file. Second, convert the meson-gxm-q200.dtb to dts and then add the wifi setting and convert back to .dtb. Then use this dtb file with armbian version 20200326
  10. Yes, since its not needed. Script should take care of that. Well, a sudo apt install has to be added ... - syntax error has to be ironed out, working on it - wrong sources is a correct response of a test case. My tests are now automatically upload to https://dl.armbian.com/_test-reports/
  11. Built a module for the last kernel (version 20200326). But please note, without adding settings to the DTB and the correct firmware, this will not work. https://yadi.sk/d/bwAiVN8Gv51Rwg
  12. Which is making an internet connection necessary. Your current update including the icon is my preferred method. As mentioned before I would look for SVG as this scales smoothly. I stopped looking for icons of SVG because of your comment before. - any changes on your side? You have edited my suggestion (PR) for the ReadME.md and removed the installation procedure I put there. To simulate my initial situation on Ubuntu Mate 18.04.4 I did remove: sudo apt-get remove sshpass iperf3 jq The test is running twice, my root user credentials are given. My phone is laying around bluetooth enabled, WiFi on the router is on - Rock Pi 4B. I got 2x Syntax error and 1x [ err. ] Wrong sources were installed plus the missing software `dpkg -l sshpass git iperf3 jq`
  13. Armbian_20.05.0_Arm-64_bionic_dev_5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326_desktop fails to boot
  14. Nice, I have received the same kind of boards lately, but I'm afraid it is too simple. It won't allow to balance the charge for several batteries, so I have to use just one (which is perfectly fine for my use), and I'm not sure of how it will behave when the main current stops. I have to make tests (replacing the SBC with a USB fan for example). What worries me about your board is I know most of the time, our loads don't need much current, but I would not leave this board doing its job far away from sight. Other charging PCBs are on their way to my home, so that I can do more tests.
  15. Do you use cross-compilation ? s912 gets very hot at full load, and the cooling system needs to be redesigned. Sealed plastic case-greatly impairs the operation. Important. Even if you build a module, you need to make changes to the DTB in order for it to work. To do this, you need to have access to the DTS sources from your model. You can try to pull the DTB from the firmware of the device itself (infa, how to do this, is on the forum) and convert it to DTS, which would get the parameters for your WiFi.

    Unable to work because of medical issue, today i work and found The chip on the board is 8189EFV Found driver on https://github.com/jwrdegoede/rtl8189ES_linux then the make make ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/5.5.11-meson64/build make: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-5.5.11-meson64' UPD include/config/kernel.release UPD include/generated/utsrelease.h CC scripts/mod/empty.o HOSTCC scripts/mod/mk_elfconfig MKELF scripts/mod/elfconfig.h HOSTCC scripts/mod/modpost.o CC scripts/mod/devicetable-offsets.s UPD scripts/mod/devicetable-offsets.h HOSTCC scripts/mod/file2alias.o HOSTCC scripts/mod/sumversion.o HOSTLD scripts/mod/modpost make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'arch/arm64/kernel/vdso/vdso.lds', needed by 'arch/arm64/kernel/vdso/vdso.so.dbg'.

    Hello, Before experimenting with the box, I decided to check the UART, but I did not succeed. Can someone check if the UART in the tvbox is fake or I did not take into account something? Sorry for translating Google.
  18. Hi, How do I flash this image to a MicroSD card? With previous armbian image, after flashing I have a BOOT partition for me to edit the uEnv.ini but with this image Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.037_Aml-s9xxx_bionic_current_5.5.0-rc6_20200205.img.xz after flashing using balenaEtcher or Rufus, I can't seem to find the BOOT partition? Thanks. Edit: Ok, the image needs to be unpacked first and use Rufus. balenaEtcher doesn't work
  19. is this issue fixed now? it seems that i still encounter this problem...
  20. My company was able to get the datasheets.. Hope to open source the driver and image as soon as possible
  21. Been using Atomic Pi (x86) with OpenWRT for a while now AtomicPi 4x 1.44 (1.92) Ghz 2GB 1X LAN - = $30 Not dual native but.. Nanopi R2S is essential the same with integrated RTL8153 (USB 3.0 to Gig-E) $22 NanoPi R2s 4x 1.4 Ghz 1GB 1x WAN, 1X LAN - = $22 Since the AtomicPi has double the RAM and AES-NI - would stick with that but has slightly higher power usage and its x86 vs arm.
  22. Which benefit should I get from using the older build, when recent bionic next works nice from eMMC?!
  23. Loverpi FINALLY answered me. Here is the documentation to compile u-boot for SPI: https://github.com/amarula/bsp-rockchip/releases
  24. Yesterday
  25. I tried Linux 5.4 on my Rock64 v2.0. Ethernet is not working, which makes the board pretty useless. Unfortunately I don't remember the dmesg error string... is this a known issue? Do you need help investigating it?
  26. Can't comment on your specific hardware but see point 3. of https://forum.armbian.com/topic/2419-armbian-for-amlogic-s905-and-s905x-ver-544/?do=findComment&comment=58673 I have TWRP custom recovery on one of my tv boxes so I can issue the reboot update command from a shell in recovery.
