  1. Hello everyone, I have an issue in here. I'm very new to these things so have little knowledge and thus, forgive me if i ask something stupid but i have a problem. I have installed armbian debian verson to my NanoPC T4 and installed i3wm and did a lot of configuration and filled it with junk but i almost achieved what i'm trying to. Yet as i mentioned, i also filled with a lot of junk while trying to achieve my setup for my project. Anyway, from what i know is that what i'm asking is not the linux way but while trying, i found a problem on my case. I wanted to make a clean installation and fill the things i found out worked with the setups i came up but when i installed the microSD to its socket and reboot, it rebooted from eMMC again. I have tried with 3 different microSDs and still no solution on the issue. So the thing came up to my mind that while i was messing around and switching the kernels at the beginningat first for solving the sound problem or doing some other things, i might messed up with the root sequence tough i dont know how. So what i'm asking is how can i set the booting priority to microSD socket first and then eMMC? or make sure that the sequence is right but the problems are coming from the SD cards? And while i was checking, i have a very small and cheap NVMe SSD card and the question also came to my mind that is it possible to make a NVMe SSD can be a bootable drive? Thank you all reading and trying to help.
  2. I have the same problem, just connected a 2 pin 5V from the casual pins instead of using the fan controller designed for the board. I Also mentioned in one of my emails to FriendlyElec with another bunch of questions, yet that question remained unanswered. If you find a fan with a connector that fits, please publish it so others like me can also use the solution.
  3. Well, if you like to use less mouse and more keyboard and like the tiling type of windows, and not using much of things in a desktop environment out of some certain programs, i strongly recommend that. And they are very easy to customize, i even found them look better than a desktop environment, faster and easy to work. I'm using the gaps version of i3 that you can find the git image easily and installation. Even i didnt got any problems on things. But i'm still following the instructions on the raspberry pi forums except installing the i3 from repos, i'm installing i3-gaps from git. Those pages might help if needed. Sorry that i got off topic i guess.
  4. I tried for rpi already 2 months ago and loved it. But havent seen at repos of armbian for NanoPC T4 Yes i know it is clocked but i also know using a tiling window manager over core is also slightly faster than even the lightest Desktop Environment. While i was using my rpi, i used the raspbian with its own desktop environment which is a modified version of lxde and also tried i3 over raspbian lite without GUI, i can say that i3 was a little better and sometimes that little makes some difference. Tough i'm not an expert, i prefer i3 as i found that it is good documented. And now the audio and shutdown also fixed, i can modifiy it a little By the way, i realized the heat is more than usual, the top heat i got while chromium with 10 tabs open was 55 degrees and now it stayed open like 4 hrs already with lxterminal running on i3 and feh for background image, it is 43 degrees. It was around 44-47 degrees too while working on FriendlyCore. I'm using the heatsink from FriendlyElec and a 40mmx10mm 5V fan.
  5. I tried vivaldi while testing i3 on raspberry pi 3 model b+ but couldnt able to install from repos at armbian and at that moment, audio was my primary concern. But i tested many browsers on my i3 over rpi and vivaldi and chromium were the ones best for surfing and for video playback. I will try firefox too. Till this short time tough i3 over armbian is doing way better on performance than FriendlyDesktop.
  6. Update: I switched kernels from armbian-configi after reading at some forums and aplay -l gave the device list. Started i3 and opened chrome, tested a youtube video and it was working automatically.
  7. The problem is pulseaudio seems not working properly too. When i just type pulseaudio, getting Unable to contact D-bus error for server-lookup.c and main.c. When i use the pulseaudio -k, getting "main.c: Failed to kill daemon: No such process" error.
  8. Hello folks, i'm pretty new to armbian and trying to run i3wm on armbian on my NanoPC T4 that connected to my HDMI TV. When i used FriendlyDesktop, i needed to change the output to use the HDMI work. And i tried to install i3 on FriendlyCore but happened to got many problems but the support ppl at FriendlyElec really interested and tried to help. But while trying, i also wanted to check armbian and found it awesome, installed i3 and run without any problems and also the programs like chromium. Yet i'm unable to get any sound from HDMI. I tried to do the solution at FriendlyCore's wiki on the matter at first with installing libasound2, asla-base and alsa-utils but getting error on installing alsa-base, something like content change. Tried aplay -l and got "No audio device found" error. I know that at least the HDMI audio output works but couldnt able to switch to it. Done lots of diggings and tried the pulseaudio comands. Still no results. What am i missing? What should be the problem? There is also one interesting thing i found out that with reboot command, device is rebooting without problem but with shutdown command, it starts shutdown process but ending up with a buggy colorful screen. I know the last part probably not related but added that might be some connection.
