    EUREKA!
    Thank you balbes150 and Panzerknaker - did make my third donatian to armbian through paypal.

    What is the best way for one to get himself familiar with memory address management.   To know offsett and size of memory addresses.   It is a bit a Hebrew to me and probably most others. 
     
    This is a good source of information about practical use of u-boot commands, with examples and explanations.

    Devices that you connect in the same room  ? Wifi is an evil that can only be used for mobile devices, which in principle cannot use a cable (LAN). You ruin your health and the health of others. Now there are a lot of idiots who are too lazy to lay a cable and they stupidly use WiFi shit.

    To get rid of all the tails that are now on your SD card, I recommend doing a clean check. Download the image from the link, unzip it and burn it to the SD card. Do not change anything on the SD card, connect to the device and check the launch.

    balbes150 got a reaction from JMCC in Architecture for adding additional desktop enviromnents, and application groups   
    I tried adding a new configuration to the build system that is (if possible) close to the current set of master branch packages when building a default image with DE XFCE. I checked the native build with this configuration option, the build passes without errors and the images work on P1\M1. If someone has time, please look and check the received configuration, maybe I missed some necessary packages (or added extra ones). Links to package lists for focal and buster.

    balbes150 got a reaction from JMCC in RK3399 Legacy Multimedia Framework   
    LE uses its own settings management system (including audio), which consists of many different additional components (these are not components of KODI itself). For Armbian + mediascript, you must first set the necessary settings in the system (if the system supports them, not all settings are possible in Armbian) and then switch to KODI. In Armbian, the KODI application is limited in setting different hardware settings, it uses system settings.

    balbes150 reacted to NicoD in Buster image - unable to boot RockPi 4 B (1GB) board   
    @IgorI can confirm that freshly build Buster Legacy on the M4V2 is working. I love the native ARM build, so much faster than the RockPiX And that's RK3399, haven't gotten N2+ to work yet.

    I do not know what the problem with the RockPi4 image is.
    It can't have been the same issue as M4V2. The discription makes me think it's also hdmi not working as with P1.

    I finished the video about the media script. 
    I had a lot of troubles with youtube because I used a few seconds of southpark and I got age restriction 18 years. Youtube doesn't like Southpark clearly. 
    Tried 3 times with different clips. In the end I cut it all out.. Thanks @JMCC for the awsome work. Without your scripts I wouldn't think of using an SBC as main desktop.

    balbes150 reacted to Igor in Armbian v21.02   
    Release planning: January 2nd. Meeting location is IRC channel #armbian on freenode. Meeting starts at 2pm GMT.
     
    Open topics / development directions:

    - desktop branch merge into the master
    - enabling 3D support on desktop(s)
    - update u-boot (where possible) to 2020.10 and K5.10.y
    - ZSH setting to default or optimise 1st run choosing
    - moving blob section (except build packages) to newly created structure inside "desktop" branch (need to discuss best way / adjust framework if needed and set rules!)
    - and Jira bugs / features we chose to deal with by then
     
    There are reports about some broken images on Rockchip legacy, K5.9.y is EOL so there is an option to squeeze another bugfix update with focus on u-boot / kernel update + image refreshing. Anything that is outside of my test rig - I have no idea about the statue - except well known NIC troubles with Orangepi 3.

    There is no "new" kernel for P1, I use the rockchip64 kernel (all patches are regular from the build system only added patches for DTB), the difference is only in the kernel configuration + adding drivers for WiFi.

    You do your job well. 
    It is not necessary to know everything, in the modern world only specialization in a narrow direction will allow you to achieve good results. Unfortunately, the number of "narrow specialists" who work on the development of Armbian is scanty and they have a huge load ....

    No problem. I've said it's still in beta and it is best to use one of your images to build. I'll link to your download page.
    I also show the /lib64/... file that is needed.
    Thank you for your amazing efforts and help(and @Werner and @Igor and the others).
    I'd love to help out more with coding, but then I'd have no time left for my tasks like making videos.
    And I'm no coder anymore, I don't have the overview that I used to have. Brain damage makes me be not so smart  You don't need to be smart to be happy

    I planned to create a simple DEB package with these files for easy installation as a dependency of the build environment, but so far there is not enough free time for this (after creating the package, it still needs to be placed in a network repository and check how it will work on different versions of distributions). So for now, I limit myself to "simple dumb copying" and including these files in all my images.
     
    p.s. Unfortunately, those who want to help, at least in such simple operations, are not observed. Everyone wants to get everything for free, beautiful and that everything would work out of the box ....

    I was able to install ubuntu-mate-desktop. Doesn't boot into desktop but can start it with startx.
    I think the reason my SBC builds didn't work was because I always tried hirsute desktop. All others worked. So I'm happy to know I now can easily build images with my SBCs.
    Wasn't an ARM problem.
    I'll need a new 12V adapter so I can put my N2 next to my router as build server. The P1 stole the N2 its adapter.
    I'm glad the troubles been found because I was starting to doubt in myself :) Thank you @balbes150

    If  have a native build, on the one hand, significantly expand the list of possible images with different DE, with different sets of packages, and on the other hand,  no build and  place all possible versions on the site, users can build the desired version of the system with arbitrary sets of DE and packages in them. They can also build their own kernel variants with changing the necessary options in the kernel configuration.

    What model do you want to run on ?
     
    You can take these files (need two files\libraries) from your x86 host system, or from any of my images (ArmbianTV\Armbian for M1\P1). Or from my GIT (these libraries are included in all my builds, so that users can easily run the build themselves on any ARM device). by the way, the site has versions of images with these libraries for n2 and t4.

    New packages uploaded to the repos (it may take some hours to synchronize).
    Bug fixes: X Desktop no longer restarted on package install, so it can be installed from a desktop session (NOTE: Since the old package is still going to restart X when uninstalled, it is recommended to do this update from console). MPV now is not failing when it cannot create EGL surface (it will just default to standard x11). CEC is now working on several boards (tested in RockPro64 and Rockpi 4B). New features: MPV is now RKMPP accelerated, and allows 4K YouTube Playback (see instructions here).
