  2. I tested the recently added sunxi-dev patch to improve the SATA write speed. Here are the results: Board: Cubietruck OS: Ubuntu Bionic (18.04.2), Armbian 5.86 Kernel: 5.1.0 with and without RFC-drivers-ata-ahci_sunxi-Increased-SATA-AHCI-DMA-TX-RX-FIFOs.patch SATA-device: SAMSUNG SSD 830 Series, 256GB Measurement method: dd if=/dev/zero of=/tesfile bs=? count=? oflag=direct bs: measured 4k, 64k and 1M block sizes count: adjusted to ensure that data written is ~500MB Measurements below are made with kernel 5.1.0 without (before) and with the mentioned patch: dd bs Before MB/s After MB/s Increase 4k 13.3 19.0 43% 64k 35.9 82.0 128% 1M 42.5 112.0 164% As you can see, the SATA write speed improved, especially when using larger block sizes. Up to now, no negative side-effects encountered.
  3. Removing the module sun4i_gpadc from the kernel, helps somewhat on my A20 Cubietruck with latest user-built Armbian (5.76, Kernel 4.19.25-sunxi). The constant 5-7% CPU consumption of "kworker-eve" has disappeared, but every 10 seconds the CPU load is still up to 25% for one second (as it did before the module removal). Here's the "vmstat 1" output: root@cubietruck:~# vmstat 1 procs -----------memory---------- ---swap-- -----io---- -system-- ------cpu----- r b swpd free buff cache si so bi bo in cs us sy id wa st 1 0 0 1888928 9680 87180 0 0 59 1 47 54 1 6 93 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 32 40 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 29 39 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 25 38 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 38 54 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 27 38 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 157 42 0 25 75 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 40 53 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 44 56 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 27 40 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 27 35 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 0 1888904 9680 87180 0 0 0 0 29 39 0 0 100 0 0 Is there anything I can do beside the removal of the sun4i_gpadc module?
  4. Great work @s_frit ... you made my day! I was playing around with alsamixer on a Nano-PC T4 on Armbian (5.76, Ubuntu Bionic, no GUI) with "limited success". After importing the above quoted state settings, Audio was fine on the 3.5mm audio jack. Now I am successfully using mpd to play music without problems :-D
