  1. This is working very well for me (only 5 days uptime due to local power outage - otherwise it "just works" :-)
  2. Thanks MaX, but now I already have what I need - thanks to some others' comments on my post :-)
  3. Now that the OPi3 has been moved into the Armbian downloads section there needs to be be a set of 'known-to-be-working' images made available while development on newer kernels and features continues. There will be a number of people buying the OPi3 as their first SoC board, trying the 'factory' images (as we have all done in the past ) and then coming here where they will currently find images labelled "Suitable for Testing" that will not boot. This is not a great first impression of Armbian for these people, who won't yet have the knowledge or experience to hold back upgrade packages or to replace dtb files, etc. and just want to be able to boot a [mostly] working system.
  4. Works perfectly for me - thank you @dziobak ___ ____ _ _____ / _ \| _ \(_) |___ / | | | | |_) | | |_ \ | |_| | __/| | ___) | \___/|_| |_| |____/ Welcome to Ubuntu Bionic with Armbian Linux 5.1.7-sunxi64 System load: 0.22 0.16 0.14 Up time: 44 min Memory usage: 17 % of 1997MB IP: CPU temp: 36°C Usage of /: 24% of 7.1G
  5. Aaarrrgghh!! How did I not find that Thank you!
  6. Thanks for the suggestion but I need to use Ubuntu for the things I want to test, and I don't have *ANY* earlier Ubuntu images, only Debian :-/
  7. Hi guys, I'm aware of the current issues with the OPi3 images not booting and for me I can't find any of the currently downloadable images that will boot. I just need to urgently test a couple of things - can anyone point me to a reasonably recent Ubuntu Bionic dev server image for the OPi3 that will boot/run? I have an "old" Armbian_5.78_Orangepi3_Debian_stretch_dev_5.0.7.img that runs just fine (as long as I don't upgrade it!) but I don't have any similar Ubuntu versions. Does anyone happen to know of an archive of old versions, or maybe have something that I could download direct? Many thanks! George
  8. Seeing the current issues I'm happy that I'm running an earlier build :-) Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.83 user-built Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) 5.0.9-sunxi64 System load: 2.14 2.11 2.06 Up time: 23 days Memory usage: 60 % of 1997MB Zram usage: 1 % of 998Mb IP: CPU temp: 56°C Usage of /: 27% of 7.1G Currently running PiHole, MQTT and SETI@Home :-D
  9. With my OPi3 powered from the 'genuine' power adaptor via the power jack I'm not seeing any voltage issues. On no load I see 5.2v at the USB sockets..
  10. Are you really considering building an madm RAID with USB drives? Technically it is possible but I doubt you'll get anything but problems with reliability. It's easier than you may think to compile yourself - check out If you're looking to 'play' with mdadm as a learning exercise then fine, but if you really value your data I'd suggest you should build a 'proper' raid using an x86 board and good quality SATA drives. On budget SoC boards I'd just rsync my precious data across several physical drives.
  11. There's clearly more to this than it seems : I found this article from back in 2016, which then led me to here. And so now: george@orangepi3:~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure iputils-ping george@orangepi3:~$ ls -l /bin/ping -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 73280 Aug 3 2018 /bin/ping george@orangepi3:~$ ping PING ( 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=57 time=28.7 ms 64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=57 time=76.7 ms What the ???? The discussion thread goes on (and on..) but this is getting a bit beyond me
  12. I just went to build a new image for my OPi3 and found that the 'Buster' option has appeared - I just had to go for it! Everything seemed to have built OK and once I'd applied the WiFi 'fix' from here I was up and running. The issue I've found is that I was unable to ping anything : george@orangepi3:~$ ping ping: socket: Operation not permitted This seems to be because the ping binary apparently should have the SUID bit set, so : george@orangepi3:~$ which ping /bin/ping george@orangepi3:~$ ls -l /bin/ping -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 73280 Aug 3 2018 /bin/ping george@orangepi3:~$ sudo chmod +s /bin/ping george@orangepi3:~$ ping PING ( 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.118 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.127 ms ^C I don't know if this is an issue with the Armbian build process or perhaps it is being echoed from the Debian Buster sources, and so I'm not sure how/where is the correct place to report it
  13. If it's important - Backup, backup, backup!
  14. Erm... Careful people, that link is to nightly images for the OPi One Plus and not the OPi Three
  15. Guys please remember that this is still very early (alpha) software, and is hi-res video such a high priority? IMHO you need to give the devs some time to look at issues like this - and many of us like to relax at the weekend 🙂
