    Igor got a reaction from schwar3kat in Do you like to see your favorite board supported?   
    We never get to the stage to have a good manual for that since things we changing so much and since we have plan to refactor all this. To make it more simple.
     
    Those examples can help (from simple to complex)

    Its almost identical to Nanopi R2S. This can also help.

    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.

    Officially no. Too many hardware is seeking for very low time and expertise.
     

    Example of first start
    https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/3c4b69650e9f98edbf7f0a934add1dd19eb14772
    Yes, it might looks complicated, but we are working on to improve the procedure. That is generally more useful for us.
     
     
    Documentation - start there first:
    https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/
    https://docs.armbian.com/Process_Contribute/
    ... and do small steps.
     

    That kernel is shipped with the chip, while path to modern kernel is long, hard and expensive:

    Igor got a reaction from NicoD in armbian-config RFC ideas   
    In current armbian-config,  we have a broken desktop install on top of CLI images, while I have made several checks and come to a conclusion its fairly simple to install desktop. Which could be a nice first working functionality in the new armbian-config. And a reason to start moving on.  

    1. Available desktops per release for select box:
     
    apt-cache search armbian-$(grep VERSION_CODENAME /etc/os-release | cut -d"=" -f2)-desktop- | cut -d" " -f1  
    armbian-focal-desktop-gnome
    armbian-focal-desktop-xfce

    armbian-focal-desktop-cinnamon
    armbian-focal-desktop-deepin
    armbian-focal-desktop-i3-wm
    armbian-focal-desktop-mate
    armbian-focal-desktop-xmonad
     
    All those exists in repository and are up2date.
     
    2. Installation
     
    echo lightdm | sudo tee -a /etc/X11/default-display-manager DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive DEBCONF_NONINTERACTIVE_SEEN=true apt-get install --install-recommends -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confdef" -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confold" -y armbian-focal-desktop-xfce

    Igor reacted to g00d in [ODROID-HC2] where does u-boot look for necessary files and what filesystem type is needed ?   
    Me again. I figured out what the problem was and I was able to solve this like that:
     
    the original /boot structure contains three symbolic links, in my case on the ODROID-HC2 (which is equal to odroidxu4):
     
    dtb -> dtb-5.4.151-odroidxu4
    uInitrd -> uInitrd-5.4.151-odroidxu4
    zImage -> vmlinuz-5.4.151-odroidxu4
     
    The default boot.ini is seeking for that link names but on the fat system it's not possible to have symbolic links. I just renamed (or one can simply copy) the existing three files like that:
     
    dtb-5.4.151-odroidxu4 ---to---> dtb
    uInitrd-5.4.151-odroidxu4 ---to---> uInitrd
    vmlinuz-5.4.151-odroidxu4 ---to---> zImage
     
    I also found out that /boot folder is NOT being red by boot process, it looks at the root folder for those files. So I "mv /boot/* /" moved the complete content of the /boot folder into the root. That way the boot process works like a charm.
     
    Thank you Igor for assistance. Have a nice weekend

    Debian is not responsible for communicating with equipment. That is Armbian Linux kernel problem which is a donation from Armbian developers to you and larger Linux community.

    Userland is "A conceptual space outside the kernel in which a user's applications can run without the risk of damage to the operating system."
    https://docs.armbian.com/#what-is-armbian

    We provide you operating system that looks on Debian (is made from the same versions of packages), so it works the same for you, when hardware functions are not involved. Otherwise those machines are very different.
