  1. @Darius The Tritium H5 is solid board and I own one my self. Make sure you get the heat sink or third party ones for it. That lil lady runs on the hotness side
  2. @Darius I'm not sure how much more I can tell you about it, but I can try and help you. Using the same server image (or headless? which ever you prefer) start the board and login. Once in, run the following command - sudo lsmod My Renegade lsmod: sudo lsmod Module Size Used by zram 24576 4 rk_vcodec 65536 0 uio_pdrv_genirq 16384 0 uio 20480 1 uio_pdrv_genirq ip_tables 24576 0 x_tables 28672 1 ip_tables autofs4 40960 2 That should present you with a list of all the loaded modules and "hopefully" something that is not on my list that looks audio related. Once said module is found, we can then unload it and place it in a blacklist. Example: sudo rmmod pesky_rk3328_codec Now with it unloaded, let us add it to the blacklist. sudo echo pesky_rk3328_codec > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf For that to take full effect we will need to reboot, but before we do that lets tackle the Wifi. As for your Wifi troubles, let us try running - sudo nmtui That should present you with three options, one being "Activate a connection" and from there you should see your available Wifi. Make your selection, enter your passkey and connect. If anyone else has some suggestions, thoughts or corrections. Please feel free to interject.
  3. In my experience this is caused by the Alsa for SoC audio support > Codec Drivers: X Rockchip RK3328 Codec When that is enabled in the kernel config, the sdcard will get read/write errors during boot and throw you into readonly mode. As a temp solution you could try to blacklist the module or build ur own img and disable it in the kernel config. This by the way, does not happen when using an eMMC and yes, I believe TonyMac32 is already on the case.
  4. @NanoP I don't own a M4, but I do have a T4 and whilst testing on that my drive came up as it should. My own personal experience with Rockchip and USB3 ports hasn't really been a good one and because of that, I do not use them as a NAS. Which is and I'm just guessing here, what ur trying to do. If it is power related, may i suggest getting a small USB powered hub?
  5. I don't know why that would be happening, but instead of manually unplugging it, you could try to unbind and bind the port. If that works, you could then create a script to do that for you on each boot. Example: #!/bin/bash sudo sh -c 'echo 8-1 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usb/unbind' sudo sh -c 'echo 8-1 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usb/bind' I use on my Tritium with a USB mic and ran into a similar problem. I found this to be the easiest remedy . Note: If this is a harddrive, then you'll of course want to delay the drive being mounted and mount the drive after the bind. Which should be easy enough to do within the script. Looks like this had already been mentioned:
  6. I've come across this error from time to time and it's caused by either a poor internet connection or mirror. Try adjusting the /etc/apt/sources.list -->
  7. In my case the USB3 port comes up as 006 001 when checking with lsusb and if I do the following it resets the port. sudo sh -c 'echo 6-1 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usb/unbind' sudo sh -c 'echo 6-1 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usb/bind'

  9. Has the eMMC issues been worked out on this board yet? Can I install to SDCARD and then push it to eMMC using arbian-config or is 'page 2' still the only option? Thanx!
  10. Hey I use Compton with Openbox on all my boards worth having a small DE on. Here's what I place in the autostart: compton -b -d :0 & Here's my ~/.config/compton.conf shadow = true; no-dnd-shadow = true; no-dock-shadow = true; clear-shadow = true; shadow-radius = 3; shadow-offset-x = -3; shadow-offset-y = -3; shadow-opacity = 0.55; shadow-red = 0.0; shadow-green = 0.0; shadow-blue = 0.0; shadow-exclude = [ "name = 'Notification'", "class_g = 'Conky'", "class_g ?= 'Notify-osd'", "class_g = 'Cairo-clock'" ]; shadow-ignore-shaped = false; menu-opacity = 0.94; inactive-opacity = 0.85; active-opacity = 1.0; frame-opacity = 1.0; inactive-opacity-override = false; alpha-step = 0.06; inactive-dim = 0.0; blur-kern = "3x3box"; blur-background-exclude = [ "window_type = 'dock'", "window_type = 'desktop'" ]; fading = true; fade-in-step = 0.03; fade-out-step = 0.03; fade-exclude = [ ]; backend = "xrender"; mark-wmwin-focused = true; mark-ovredir-focused = true; detect-rounded-corners = true; detect-client-opacity = true; refresh-rate = 0; vsync = "none"; dbe = false; paint-on-overlay = true; focus-exclude = [ "class_g = 'Cairo-clock'" ]; detect-transient = true; detect-client-leader = true; invert-color-include = [ ]; glx-copy-from-front = false; glx-swap-method = "undefined"; wintypes : { tooltip : { fade = true; shadow = false; opacity = 0.75; focus = true; }; }; fade-delta = 4; Pulled this from my RK3399
  11. Well this works: So i'm assuming PulseAudio Volume Control would be working as well. Cheers!
  12. So it appears to be a problem in the default kernel config. # CODEC drivers # CONFIG_SND_SOC_RK3328 is not set After enabling that "CONFIG_SND_SOC_RK3328=y" and compiling a new kernel using the Armbian build script, the on board analog audio port now works, but I'm still unable to control it using alsamixer. So my question is: What else am I missing here? I don't have a DE installed on the board, so I have no idea how it looks on that end. I was able to plug in some headphones and with moc adjust the volume level and play an MP3. So yeah that works.
  13. @zaphod79 Hey. I just checked my own RK3328-CC and I can't speak for other people, because I'm not sure what they are using this board for, but alsamixer doesn't show much. I did attach a generic USB Stereo Sound Adapter (SD-UAUDV1-C119) and it did appear to at least recognize it. I know it's a bit of a "dick punch" but it might be a route worth taking? If sound at the end of the day is what ur going for.
  14. Well I can't speak for other peoples experiences, but as for my own. I haven't experienced a single crash I think a lot of it comes down to eMMC and SD cards. I've found that if ur not using a eMMC with this device, it's best you get ur self a quality card. The SanDisk Extreme Pro is what I'm currently using and yeah... Working Well. I also have another Potato with the eMMC on board and am currently using it as a NAS. Also runs just fine.
  15. Have you tried CoreElec? Been using it for sometime with the Le Potato.
