  1. Armbian distro is a side product. Main product is Armbian build framework which provides environment where one can recompile whole image or its vital parts successfully with far greater certainty. It also exists because we want to avoid spending time researching problems you have ... It looks like you are doing things right, but without study its impossible to say. Proceed this way: https://zuckerbude.org/armbian-using-create-patches/
  2. Our test hardware (Cubox i4) works http://ix.io/3HgE but this doesn't mean all variants (we only have one device) and kernels are covered. I can't tell from those logs what is wrong. BTW. We are going to put a lot of devices into retirement, probably also this one since nobody beside me has it and I have no time for any research anytime soon.
  3. Why would you want to downgrade to the generic Ubuntu kernel? (where its highly possible you will not even boot) Agree. You are already at best possible variant ... which could ofc be polished.
  4. Which ones do you have troubles with? Any specific mirror or in general? Check also here: https://github.com/armbian/dl-router/issues @lanefu
  5. That is correct. If you got my attention, I will not throw this opportunity away. Since you don't pay for software nor for its maintaining, that is putting a pressure and stealing money from people that maintain this software. We already have hundreds of tasks waiting for help (to help you) while end users are not allowed to raise bugs. Why? Because already bug management (prioritizing bugs without fixing them) project exceeds our budget for magnitude and because fixing bugs costs millions you have no intention to cover. Your covering current costs is below 0.5%, which you should understand if you have clicked and read FAQ from previous post. Try to find some other ways to help. I expose one, but there are many others. Finding us more work, while not helping with resources, is dead end. Not sustainable. Pointless.
  6. You have also been warned about edge software, where this not very well tested packaging method is used. Fixed on my private expense in the meantime: https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/3316 People read very poor. Software has no warranty whatsoever, especially EDGE (does this name express stability?) https://github.com/armbian/build#support https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_FAQ/ Long term preventive:
  7. We have hundreds of tasks waiting for someone. I bet it's possible to find something you can contribute to. Ahaa, this. Welcome to the club. Percentage of people that knows how to deal with this complexity (on their expense!) is notoriously low since ever. New boards are coming out with at higher and higher rate, which means there is more and more pressure on people that knows stuff. Learning is very slow and expensive on the other hand. I understand you would like that your shiny new and good looking board function perfectly, but that will not happen just like that. And certainly not "now". It takes months to year(s), before they are functioning so-so (outside their proprietary kernel) and they need constant investments and love. They are like children with special needs ... I bet you didn't read requirements? If we would require that maintainers knows how to bring board up and fix bugs, nobody would apply! This is an assistance, to relieve those that knows something. They need help first, consumers of their time (you) optional. There are other roles that can help in a problems you have. A lot more is needed that you can get what you are asking for: https://forum.armbian.com/staffapplications/ All those things also need to be done, welcome to pick up. All roles can be from a few hours per week to full-time. And none will directly answer any of questions you have. Those roles are related with hard cash investment and since you expect all this for free ... Like we all do and we have many other problems nobody helps to solve. But has to be done in order that project function. If providing your time and expertise for common R&D work is not possible (your time is a lot more valuable, you have no time for this, ...), perhaps covering expenses of what has been asked? It is one click away. To answer some questions, people that understand things, can easily blow a week or more to provide an answer. You can also hire people to jump on problems you have at any time: https://www.debian.org/consultants/ https://www.fiverr.com/share/67vQ7B Much better than begging us to do more for you. Then person you are paying sends a fix to the problem: https://docs.armbian.com/Process_Contribute/ Another difference between people that sold you some hardware and us. If Armbian solves problems you have, it support competition that in most cases in this area contributes close to nothing. With which problem I believe you have no problems with, but perhaps Armbian maintainers have? Just a rhetorical question. Before asking for support, it's worth reading this. https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_FAQ/ This is not hardware sellers forum.
  8. Added to the armbian-config refactoring plan: https://armbian.atlassian.net/browse/AR-967
  9. Try switching to nightly builds and update bootloader there. Both in armbian-config.
  10. As expected, yeah. Thanks for your feedback. We also did some future improvements: https://armbian.atlassian.net/browse/AR-971 which should make this switching easier.
  11. Upgrade and reboot was tested many times with Focal (userspace anyway does not matter in this), but on HC4 which is almost identical ... C4 was not tested specifically. I wasted almost whole day for this. This bug is on and off coming back on Amlogic ... Yes, this is not happening on Hardkernel images, because they didn't update boot loader since 2015. BTW. We are trying to setup a testing team to at least detect problems earlier, but that costs millions and end user donations are only in thousands. Then Armbian lacks personnel to fix problems once they are find ... That's enough. Just no specific anyone will be dealing with this. This is forum.

  13. Did you check logs in output/debug/ ... is there something suspicious too see?
  14. It's not just that. Armbian has to deal with greater complexity than we are used in mainstream desktop Linux PC world. Where you have one hardware interface (kernel) and you don't deal with how hardware boots (you have bios). We cover loading Linux and we have / maintain up to tree kernels per each chip family. Then we have minimal and standard user land favours in 10 different variants (bionic, buster, focal, bullseye, ... ) and 10 different (xfce, gnome, ...) desktop types. Imagine how much things would need to be updated, to unify "armbian" version. Also how much power - currently we rebuild things with only around 240 high end x86 cpu cores which are barely enough to keep current situation under control. https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_FAQ/
