    Pinebook 14in not booting dev

    @Igor - Mine must have been special then, because it wouldn't boot with ANY distribution using a newer Kernel while it had the original 1366x768 LCD in it. Now that I swapped it for a 1920x1080 LCD it seems pretty happy with the Testing 5.56 using 4.19 but the Bionic with 3.10 that used to work stopped. I was going to do this upgrade anyway, just didn't expect to have to do it just to get things going. It wasn't just Armbian, every other distribution I tried had problems except for the one it came with that was just way too sluggish. Not exactly sure which one that was since the prior owner installed it and I didn't intend to stick with it anyway.

    Pinebook 14in not booting dev

    This one from the website downloads https://dl.armbian.com/pinebook-a64/Debian_stretch_dev_desktop.7z It boots up fine now that I swapped to a 1920x1080 LCD. Before I didn't even see the boot text messages, now I do and it starts all the way into the desktop. Of course now the Armbian Bionic Legacy Kernel 3.10 that used to work, no longer does but I kind of expected that.

    Pinebook 14in not booting dev

    OK. Thats wierd because mine won't boot any of the 4.19 options I've tried DietPi, Manjaro, and Armbian. When I took a 1920x1080 display I used to upgrade a Pi-Top CEED and tried it Manjaro booted up. Have not had a chance to try the others yet. Maybe they tweaked something in the DEV that isn't in the Test one on the website that I was trying to use.

    I was trying to use the one in the downloads link from the website. Is yours a 1920x1080 or 1366x768 LCD? Mine is the 1366x768
  5. Armbian Legacy 5.56 Kernel 3.10 boots and installs to the eMMC (as long as ext2fs is picked). Armbian Dev 5.56 Kernel 4.19 does not boot from the SD Card at all (power LED and black screen). I don't have the serial console adapter (yet) so I don't know if there is something useful there.

    Quick Pinebook Preview / Review

    @hojnikb I put a Libre Computer Le Potato in a Pi-Top v2 laptop running Armbian and it works pretty good. I had to modify the special bridge heatsink combo by removing the heatsink meant for a Raspberry Pi and just using the Libre stock heatsink for the Le Potato only problem is no eMMC yet. This setup stayed full clock speed for hours running stress -c 4 so cooling looks good. I'm also trying a similar stunt with a Tinkerboard S but cooling is still an issue with it throttling clock speed after about 10 minutes. Armbian doesn't seem to like the V1 hubs in the CEED or V1 laptop
  7. Running Armbian Desktop stable 4.14y my Tinkerboard sees the WiFi network but refuses to connect. It has worked with TinkerOS so I don’t think it’s hardware related and Iknow the passcode and WPA settings look right. When I try to connect it spins and then fails after timing out. armbianmonitor -u output (with ethernet attached) http://ix.io/1x1J I’m probably just missing something stupid. Suggestions?

    Le Potato - writing armbian to eMMC

    I went back and looked through page 2, not sure I’m daring enough to try all that stuff I don’t understand yet. It seems the next update will have a working utility so I’ll use the SD for now and work on porting the utilities to port the hub management so I can do a proper shutdown in the Pi-Top.

    Le Potato i2c bus

    Thanks, worked great. I now see bus /dev/i2c-0 and /dev/i2c-1 and my device id shows up on /dev/i2c-0 i2cdetect -l i2c-1 i2c DesignWare HDMI I2C adapter i2c-0 i2c Meson I2C adapter I2C adapter Looking forward to the future update with the overlays and eMMC, I have what I need to try and port the Pi-Top device support over now.

    Le Potato - writing armbian to eMMC

    I ordered some 20x20x2.5 copper spacers, a 25x50x10 heatsink, and a 25mm 5V fan. That seemed similar to the picture. I'll try that in the CEED again since it has more space but then I'll probably run into the hub V1 problems I still owe you debug output for. HDMI worked with 4.4 but fails with 4.14.

    Le Potato i2c bus

    http://ix.io/1wtZ BTW i2cdetect -l says i2c-0 i2c DesignWare HDMI I2C adapter My best guess is that /dev/i2c-0 is picking up an i2c channel on the hdmi interface and not the one on header pins 3 and 5. The docs say you can enable onboard i2c/spi via the armbian_config System->Hardware menu but I don't have the menu option when I run it from the Applications menu.

    Le Potato i2c bus

    If I do i2cdetect -y 0 I don't see the device id I expect to 0x10 but I do see 0x30 and 0x50 which I shouldn't because there should only be one device at 0x10. I only see one i2c bus at /dev/i2c-0. Is that the i2c bus using header pins 3 and 5 which is where my device is attached? If not how would I enable the bus on pins 3 and 5?

    Le Potato - writing armbian to eMMC

    Thanks, I suspected the eMMC setup wasn't quite there yet based on what I did catch in the discussion. I was hoping someone would say 1) Boot board without eMMC (to force it to boot from SD) 2) Install eMMC 3) Run the utility in armbian_config Is there a way to run the eMMC copy in armbian_cofig from the commend shell via ssh? Because of the way Libre suggests installing after boot I have to remove it from the Pi-Top and don't have a handy HDMI monitor at this time. I'll check the Tinkerboard cooling you recommended since I suspect that even outside of the Pi-Top it will need more than the supplied passive heatsink. Yes the fan setup wouldn't fit unless I redid the "patented" bridge that only works if the CPU is in EXACTLY the same place as on the rPi. Where did you get the heatsink and fan in teh picture?

    Le Potato - writing armbian to eMMC

    I've read the whole thread and only understand about 50% of it. To summarize is there a relatively easy way to get the current stable Armbian Stretch (4.14y) to boot from eMMC on the Le Potato? I have it working on a Tinkerboard S but the darn thing only goes about two minutes at 100% before throttling in the Pi-Top V2 case I'm using. The Le Potato I've stressed for several hours in the same case and it remained full speed but I'd rather it run off of the eMMC if possible. If not I'll just run off of SD for now since it sounds like the next bump will have a way to do it that doesn't require super kernel kung fu powers.

    Tinkerboard S and Pi-Top CEED

    Armbian 5.59 Bionic Legacy 4.4.152 boots and displays desktop Armbian 5.59 Bionic Mainline 4.14.67boots but no desktop When the FTDI cable arrives I'll capture the serial output of 4.14.67. Do you need 4.4.152 also for comparison? BTW, Legacy stops working if I do the software update in the Armbian config utility. So it appears it something since that image was updated caused it to break.
