    Armbian for Amlogic S912

    Armbian for Amlogic S802/S812

    Read the instructions carefully. You need to copy the correct dtb file. To disable the monitor search, you need to build another kernel. The answer is similar to the previous one, you need to build another kernel.

    Armbian usable on RK TV-Boxes?

    Assemble the image is not a problem. My goal is somewhat wider. Develop a comprehensive system (image, set of scripts, instructions, etc.) for the end user, which will allow the average user to easily run Linux on the TV box. A typical user should have an easy-to-play set of system startup steps. Downloaded. Unpacked. Recorded image (possibly performed a simple operation to copy additional files). Launched a TV box. Performed a simple operation (or simple steps) on an existing system. And get a ready working system. Everyone has their own criteria for a reasonable price. I have been working with different TV boxes and other electronic devices for a long time and I know well what to pay attention to in order not to regret the time spent (money). Let's try to count. The model you are referring to has serious (for me) cons. 1. LAN 100 MB. 2. Power supply 2A. This means that you will not be able to fully use all the features of the device. So have to spend money to buy a new PSU. 3. Cooling system. Without it, to use all the features of iron is not possible. To power the fan will have to either use a USB port or an external power source. 4. In the set there is no cable for firmware. More expenses. 5. The quality of the components used and the Board (marking all elements that points to Maskrom and UART). This ensures that all models are identical and the manufacturer does not make a "team hodgepodge" of what was at hand. 6. The manufacturer pays great attention to technical support and is ready to cooperate (this is important for me). 7. The presence of the OTG port. Specifically about this model I can't write yet (I don't have it yet). If you unplugged the PSU, all parameters are reset. If the electricity flashes, the TV box will turn on itself, without your desire. By the way, for this reason I like the Vega S96 it has an additional battery (as in the BIOS on the PC) and is not afraid of power failure. Don't sacrifice. Produce already showed interest and offered to send me a sample. By the way, this indirectly suggests that the manufacturer is interested (and understands) the importance of expanding support for different systems in its products. So that customers who buy its products can use it much wider than just a TV box.

    I found an interesting model with good parameters. 1GB LAN network. There is a button to turn on (this is important for models to run Linux without a remote control). There are contacts for connecting the fan (this is important for real Linux operation, especially as a server in 7\24 mode). Quality Board and components. DDR4 memory with increased speed. The manufacturer is ready to cooperate (this is important for the development of the system and obtaining important information about the equipment).

    I was interested in the process of running Linux on the RK platform. Perhaps someone has recommendations on what models it is better to pay attention in the first place ?

    Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x

    Be sure to activate multi-boot using the new image. If multiboot previously activated is required to repeat activation using files in a new image. Install Armbian to eMMC. Run Armbian from external media, run "ddbr" and create full backup eMMC. Execute script “/boot/” and install Armbian on eMMC execute script “/root/”. Please note, this is a test installation, which was tested only on a few models. Possible errors (Armbian will not boot) when you are working on unverified models which used non-standard distribution of partitions in the eMMC. Therefore, be sure to back up the "ddbr" utility before running the scripts.
  7. The new version 5.55 of images. In this version, images with a single DE (XFCE) and a server in composition are as close as possible to the official versions. Version with a Mate and Icewm will probably be later and the gathering will be from another branch GIT (specially adapted for this DE). Since now all the images will be collected using the main kernel "4.1 x", have a common structure for the entire line of s9xxx and differ significantly in steps when configuring the system, I open a separate topic for this direction. The primary steps to capture an image, activate multi-boot, and select a dtb file are common with the previous images.

    You can collect all used to c2play components (files) to the set of packages to install in any way ?

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Correction of search operation in Synaptic program. Remove from directory "/etc/apt/apt.conf.d" all files. Download the link two files and copy them to the directory "/etc/apt/apt.conf.d". Run Synaptic and update the package list. After these steps, the package search in Synaptic should work fine.

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Alas, I do not archive all versions of the files used. If you want, you can find all the videos used in the images on youtube.

    To build for S805, use this GIT.

    Armbian for Amlogic S805

    1. The update is performed on all Debian\Ubuntu, the command "apt update" "apt upgrade". 2. The composition of packages in 5.37 and 5.44 does not contain Plex. You install and configure it yourself.

    New git for version assembly Armbian for TV boxes.

    Pay attention. I'm transferring all assemblies to the core of 4.18. Therefore, in the main branch "master" changes were made to translate the "default" image Assembly to the kernel 4.18. Be careful, the algorithm of the installation script has changed "" to support kernel 4.18. For those who want to continue building images with the kernel 3.14, you can use the branch "kernel-3.14", but pay attention, I do not plan its further development.
