  1. I have a few Nanopi m4 v1 and v2 boards most of them use 5.10.16-rockchip64 kernel but one runs 4.4.213-rk3399 because I haven't got around to updating it but all of the boards have the nvme hat and a Samsung 970 SSD fitted.
  2. What SSD are you using? I've been using Samsung 970 EVO for a couple of years without any issues
  3. Ok thanks Werner as I haven't received any replies I guess this is the wrong place to post - I tried because there is such a wealth of good infomation on here - thanks for your time
  4. Hi guys, I'm looking into installing roon server on my NanoPiM4 V2 board - has anyone here done this ? it would be good to see others experiences and possible Howtos uname -a gives me 4.4.213-rk3399 #8 SMP Sat Oct 31 08:18:20 CET 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux thanks guys
  5. Thanks Nico - nice little C program he wrote there
  6. Thanks Nico - what kernel should I use ? also if you can point me to the script that controls the fan it would be great
  7. Hi all, today I used rsync to copy some music files from an attached USB drive to my NVME M2 SSD drive and noticed the Nanopi was getting very hot. I have it housed in an official metal case with a fan. The fan didn't come on despite the temperature of 80 + , the case was very hot to the touch. I turned it off in the end in case it got damaged. Any suggestions appreciated. The board is running the latest Buster from here.
  8. Hi all, anyone here ever used a Khadas Tone Board on a Nanopi M4 ? I've just bought one but can't get any sound out of it. What I'm trying to achieve is run Logitech media server in conjunction with squeezelite using the Khadas as my DAC. LMS and Squeezelite both installed and run without errors BUT ! there is no sound. How can I make the Khadas the default output device ? Edit I have it working now you have to edit /etc/defaults/squeezelite and tell it what card to use SL_SOUNDCARD="hw:CARD=Control,DEV=0"
  9. Hi all, is it possible to boot a Nanopi M4 V2 from a NVME M2 ?
  10. I just want something to power the board long enough for me to power it down gracefully in the event of a power failure
  11. Hi all, I have several Nanopi M4V2's running 24/7 which I use for prototyping my projects , I would like a UPS as a safety backup to power them. I'm in the UK has anybody got any suggestions as to what I should consider ? I hope this is the right forum for this post
  12. Hi there, thanks for replying - what I'm trying to do is clone the eMMC on a running system. If I understand what you are suggesting correctly you are saying rsync everything you need from eMMC card to an external card then install a fresh Armbian image on the eMMC and finally copy the data back
  13. I thought that might be the case thanks
  14. Hi Igor, I would like to create a system image, on my windows boxes I use AOMEI which you can use on a running system and it creates a snapshot of your current box ( applications installed etc... the works ) I would pay for such a system for these boards - when you say Backup your data and changes to the system (additional packages and configs). How can you do that with a live system ?
  15. Hi all, first off, I love my NanoPiM4V2 boards, the big drawback with them for me is backing them up, if you are running them from an eMMC and you have the board in a case, you have to remove the cover of the case, if you have a hat ( which I do ) you also have to remove that , then you can remove the eMMC module and clone or do whatever with it. What would be good for me, is, if I could temporarily boot from an sdcard , unmount the eMMC, and clone it for backup purposes. Before I ruin anything I thought I'd ask the experts. Is this doable ?
  16. Hi all, I've been away for a while - is the version shown below the latest for the NanoPi M4 V2 ? Linux M4V202 4.4.213-rk3399 #23 SMP Sat Mar 28 16:58:50 CET 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux
  17. Hi all, I had a need to install the latest version of Postgres possible across my various boards ( Nanopi4 v1 and v2 and a raspberry pi ) the only way I could find to do this, is, compile from source, I came across this howto written for the Ras Pi but it works perfectly for the other boards Here is the link
  19. hi all, does anyone have postgresql running on a Nanopi M4 v2 under bionic beaver ? I have it working on buster but can't get it to install on bionic
  20. HI all, having finally got my Nanopi m4 v2s setup as I want them ( bionic ) and pretty stable too. I would like to setup a nightly backup , I have Postgres installed so would want that data backed up to . Do any of you have any suggestions as to the best way / strategy to do this ? I have external SSD' and USB drives available
