  1. I think it would make sense to rename the forum section here from "Amlogic S905(x)" to "Amlogic". It would make much more sense for me to talk here for example about the Armbian port of the Odroid C0/C1/C1+ (Amlogic S805) then in any other forum section.
  2. I think it would make sense to rename this forum section from "Freescale imx6" to "NXP (Freescale)". Freescale itself does not exist anymore with this name and is now NXP. Also there are the i.mx8 chips ahead that would make great new boards. I think it would make most sense to rename this forum section to "NXP (Freescale)" and then in a year or two remove the "(Freescale)" and just name it NXP.

    Armbian support for BeagleBone Black

    This is great!!! Thanks for confirming that armbian would probably be really easy portable to the beaglebone black. martinayotte, you have a 2GB EMMC version of it. I have a 4GB EMMC version of it. Now all the relevant differences are covered up for the beaglebone black. I am still willing to test out images as good as i can to help adding up support for the beaglebone black to armbian. It does not seem a full support of the board is now that far away.
  4. It would be great if the BeagleBone Black could be supported by armbian with a mainline kernel image. The recent official images are already based on debian, but the kernel is NOT the mainlined opensource version: https://beagleboard.org/latest-images Thats why it would be great to see armbian supported with mainline image. I prefer the clean mainline kernel armbian images for everything. I have searched in this forum to make sure that i dont double post about this. There is no thread about armbian support for BeagleBone Black. The hardware itself can run on fully free software already. The only not supported thing is the GPU for OpenGL-ES acceleration but that is not important and also the usage of it is not that high this days. Video output is already mainlined and working. Great things about the beaglebone black: Its PCB-design is OpenHardware! So anyone can start building this device: https://github.com/beagleboard/beaglebone-black/tree/master/ALLEGRO System reference manual: https://github.com/beagleboard/beaglebone-black/wiki/System-Reference-Manual Its supported by mainline kernel: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/log/?h=v4.20-rc3&qt=grep&q=beaglebone+black Also the BeagleBone Black wireless version is supported upstream: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?h=v4.20-rc3&id=fbb5850bd3c13a7a804c2f47dbd9eeb05e4e4b4a (but it require closed source wifi blob - personally i am not interested in the wireless version because of that and dont own it because of that reason) The BeagleBone Black is a really stable device: I am willing to test images for the BeagleBone black. Developers can send me images for the BeagleBone black and i would test them and send logfiles. This and the case that everything is already mainlined make it possible to add BeagleBone black to armbian also for people who dont have the hardware at home. Sadly i am terrible at coding after trying it out many times. BeagleBone Black is avialable to order and would be probably available for much longer time thanks to OpenHardware + OpenSource software supported. I think its worth it to be supported by armbian. Thanks!
