  1. I am a little bit confused by all the version and Kernel numbering in Balbes version of Armbian. Can someone please tell me the difference between Balbes Armbian version 5.2rc7 and version 5.1.15 Is one a permanent version and the other, more of a temporary one. If you update what version do you get?
  2. I have downloaded and installed Armbian_5.90_Aml-s905_Ubuntu_bionic_next_5.2.0-rc7-next-20190701_desktop. It works great on my Mecool km8 s912 1GB. Video performance is excellent. Is the 5.2 Kernel using Hardware Video decoding? Is Zram working? Swap on HTOP shows no Swap memory?
  3. I installed Armbian_5.89_Aml-s905_Ubuntu_disco_dev_5.2.0-rc4_desktop_20190621 on my Mecool s912 I gb. It booted but the desktop environment will not load programs from the pull down menu. USB sound card worked. Video playback was very poor. Networking ethernet worked.
  4. Fantastic News RE UGOOS AM6 Can you do some benchmarks against the RK3399. I have the NanoPI M4 RK3399 2GB and am curious about buying a s922x board but if the CPU improvement is less than 10 to 20% then I can not see the point.
  5. This is good news. Kernel 5.2is coming out as the next iteration.. So this should be working on s912 boards very very soon?
  6. Can any one tell me the compelling reasons to create a new sd boot disk for my s912 Mecool with the new 5.82 S9xxx Armbian Bionic. Also what is the difference between Next version and default.. Thanks Seasalt.
  7. I agree, I think the N2 s922x is about $70. But I already have a M4 RK3399 and I do not see any compelling reason to buy another early in development board. I have been very happy with my s912 $28 Mecool KM8 1gb ram boards running Babes Armbian . I find they are a lot of fun and am able to do one computer task well but are a bit slow on two tasks or Web surfing useless.
  8. The delay before Login in babes s912 Armbian has only appeared in the last few weeks. Why was the source of en-trophy Ok before and now delayed?
  9. I have updated my s912 Mecool Km8 to the latest Babes Ubuntu version. It all works very very well. Including Video playback. But there is one small new problem. When I boot up there is a inordinate delay before the login screen appears. It could be minutes before the login screen appears. It may appear faster if you click the mouse or keyboard. Is any one having a similar problem?
  10. You have uploaded Armbian s912 5.78. What are the benefits / improvements over Armbian 5.77? It appears the Kernel has gone from 5.0 to 5.1? Does that mean better Video driver performance? P.S. 5.77 s912 runs great on my Mecool s912 TV box. I use it as my main TV / projector player now utilizing VLC. Thanks for the great work.

  12. "Sudo apt-get update" will upgrade my apps but will it upgrade the Kernel to the latest version in this case Kernel 5.0. If not is there a command that will do a Operating System update and upgrade to the latest linux Kernel? If there is not a command to update the Armbian s912 Armbian Kernel, do I have to download the latest s912 Armbian and start from scratch and reinstall all my apps again?
  13. nothing happened. HTOP astayed at 836M Ram. 314M in use. I tried adding cma=64M as well.
  14. Interesting read. So since Corelec and Armbian Oleg's s912 show approx 812mb ram available then they possibly both pre-use about the same amount of Ram. If I type cma=64 into a terminal Oleg's armbian s912 should / could allocate a smaller amount of reserved ram?
  15. Can we steel some of that ram memory back? 812 is not enough to run a basic web page browser. It just chokes but an extra 50k Ram might just be enough to get over the ram shortage.
