  1. It's difficult to guess all the needed libs. I've installed the 32bit userland and now I get an "Illegal instruction" error. So that's why I was thinking of installing a complete 32bit build. Somewhat like RPi guys do and I guess it's because of them my ARM app build is 32bit, as the most widespread platform.
  2. Would it be possible to use a 32bit build made for another board?
  3. It's a comercial app, sources are closed. All platforms are supported (win, lin, mac), but ARM is provided just as a courtesy and I don't know if a 64 bit build can be made available.
  4. I'm trying to run an executable on an OrangePi Prime. The message is: -bash: <filename>: No such file or directory The output of the file command on the executable is: <filename>: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, ARM, EABI5 version 1 (GNU/Linux), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3, for GNU/Linux 2.6.32, BuildID[sha1]=xxx, not stripped The app runs fine on OrangePi One, OrangePi Zero and Raspberry Pi.
  5. Thanx, nice work with the script!
  6. Zram maybe was not intended for creating ram drives. But it's fit to the task and it has the benefit it does not swap the contents of the ramdrive. So I'm not talking about system swap or system logs. Simply if using it in the above scenario (fast db storage) would crap the other components of it already running.
  7. I have an OrangePi Prime with 2 GB RAM. I'm running a server-like node.js app that does constant writes to .json files and text log files. Let's call it "database storage". The app is not otherwise RAM intensive, can run fine on 512 MB boards. I'm thinking of putting all my RAM to use and move the database storage to a RAM disk made with Zram. Do you see any potential problems and interference with the way Zram is configured for this board?
  8. Not bad, but limited. This would be a good always-on low power linux server. I tried with UserLAnd, but results are not good.
  9. Yes, I was thinking of adapting a solution based on ... and the rest of the explanation on sunxi website.
  10. I'm trying to get something beyond Android on a Jide Remix Mini. Originally sold as an "Android PC", it's now unsupported by manufacturer. The configuration is not bad: Allwinner A64 SOC and my unit has 2GB of RAM and 16 GB eMMC. Unfortunately, linux-sunxi lists it as (yet) unsupported. I'm not that knowledgeable with image building, so any help would be appreciated.
  11. Explaining Computers has published a test somewhat suited to this topic, however I asked here first. He does a mix of testing with Linux, Windows and Android, picking what's best for every platform. As I see it, the most important part of a SBC is the C part: computer. Therefore, computer usage would mean computer-like software. If I wanted to use Android, many phones are more powerful than SBCs and Android software is geared towards phones anyway, not TV screens or monitors. So I would exclude Android and focus on the (general) computer part. That would mean Linux or Windows. My conclusion so far is, however, Android is better supported than Linux when it comes to desktop-like performance. I don't find the appeal of SBCs in the hundreds of dollars range. I'm talking home use, not industrial. I the hundreds of dollars range there's a lot of flexibility and you can build your own "SBC" much more powerful than SBCs. For example, I don't see what's all the fuss with the Latte Panda. Perhaps youtubers got it for free and that's why they are singing praises. Back in 2012 I bought an Asus Transformer tablet, it's Atom powered, it has 2 GB of RAM, came with Windows 8 and runs Windows 10 to this day. And it cost as much as a Latte Panda, but I already got 7 years of usage (and productivity and entertainment) out of it, I didn't have to wait 'till 2018. And it has it's own touch screen and keyboard and touch pad so no cables and no extra hardware to purchase. What I'm trying to say is I see the appeal of SBCs only below 100 dolars. Preferably way below.
  12. Which do you think is the current SBC better suited as a (light) desktop? I think it would not be the one with the fastest CPU, but the one with the better software support for graphics acceleration and general usage. I have bee using a Raspberry Pi and it's fine, but it chokes because of insufficient memory.
  13. In the context of this topic, after removing network-manager and configuring the network "the old way", via /etc/network/interfaces, what is the proper way to make sure that the WiFi radio is not emitting? I plan to place my OPi Zero next to the router (wired connection) and I want to make sure there's no unneeded radio interference. My /etc/network/interfaces: auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp
  14. I can confirm that removing network-manager and configuring the interfaces via /etc/network/interfaces does the trick (at least for now).
  15. It's not just Ubuntu related. The Debian image has the same problem. And while we're on networking-related issues, with wi-fi conn my Opi Zero runs for about 36 hours, then locks and needs a hard reboot. It has always done that, but there's nothing useful in the logs. It just freezes. I suspect a wifi driver problem, some kind of overflow perhaps. "Solved" it with a daily cron reboot. Mine is HW rev. 1.5, mfg in March this year (according to the sticker), if it matters.
