    Man we really need to write the definitive sermon on this and add it to faq / documentation.     I think there might be an issue open for it somewhere

    Put few thousands on our account if you have such ideas or hire someone to get you that information. We have shared all we know - we always do that. To get a better information, to find a bug, additional time has to be lost. Perhaps a day is enough, perhaps a week wont. And we have other, much more important things to do. We would improve this service ...

    Any more details so this is actionable by the community? Version/commit numbers of u-boot for working vs. non-working would be a great start on the way to a git bisect.

    @Igor - I have just put a few thousands on your account. Can I therefore kindly a request a withdrawal of the "you don't care" part of the above? Thank you.

    That is true and the sad part that most of the time the DEVs are not really honored for their work for which they sacrifice their own time for but one has to be honest enough to mention also that it's voluntary and by creating such work you attract people to use your stuff otherwise why would you publish it? One could develope it for own purpose but by making it public it's automaticaly something you give to other people and of course they will use it.

    The nature of it will always have bugs or problems but this should be fixed otherwise there is no use of the software and people will dismiss this work and will get bad reputation over time.
     
    It's important that users and DEVs respect each others time, effort and needs (no pun intended) and for the "normal" users remember:
    This stuff is NOT free!!! yes not monetary but it costs valuable human life time which the DEVs sacrifice. Other projects have more developers so more man power.
     
    I still think that Armbian is OS with good basis and possibilities but it's not for me in current state and everybody should just evaluate if they want to stick with it or just move on.

    May be in few years I will try armbian again

    I guess I felt like that great discussion in rpardini's PR was sort of shut down prematurely.  Maybe the forum is a better place where we can take the long view over time and build more consensus about some of these bigger changes.
     
    Here, everyone have a beer and relax, get into right frame of mind.

    Doing this should probably trigger it.  https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/lib/distributions.sh#L157

    Also take a look at 

    https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/lib/distributions.sh#L372-L379

     

    Might be related to https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/packages/bsp/common/lib/systemd/system/armbian-firstrun-config.service#L9
     

    Probably best to keep conversation here for now.  Mostly we use issues in GitHub for major bugs / problems

    hi @kentAVR

    Sorry I see that the confusion was now.  It was around user provided Kernel Configuration vs user provide Kernel Source Config.

    here's an example of a kernel source config you could override.. https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/sources/families/rockchip64.conf

    and yes, yourre correct, the pattern for providing a kernel build config in the top of the userpatches/ folder following the appropriate naming convention.

    IMHO the right option is to buy technical support for your model from Armbian. You will get a ready-made, normally working system and a constant update of your devices, taking into account security and new packages. As a bonus, you will get a wide selection of different Debian\Ubuntu systems with a desktop or server versions.

    Okay..  There's another open role that you may be interested in:

    We're looking for someone who's interested in the hardware, likes to post on the forum to discuss and share technical improvements, but also get angry about low participation, and take any opportunity available to insult the Armbian project and yell at developers and contributors who generally have good intentions.
     
    Is that something you'd be interested in taking on?

    No worries. I am already an adult. To be more precise, I'm already over 60 years old. To use your words, I was scared by the tone and expectations of you developers. It's the first forum I've experienced that was designed for developers and not for users (3 of 18 sections are for users). A beginner has to come to terms with that first.
    You constantly write about how much effort the development is and that you want support - but when one is ready to cooperate, he will be left out in the cold.

    It is not yet 3 months since I bought my first rockpi4. Before that I had no contact at all with such small parts- and for so, I don't know anything about its requirements or handling.
     
    From there - my question was meant seriously. But I also do not have to impose myself.
    I have almost reached my goals, so I am quite satisfied.

    lanefu reacted to djurny in Orange Pi Zero NTP Stratum 1 PPS GPS Server with Armbian OS, Hardware and Software Tutorial   
    Hi @Elektrický,
    Nice tutorial, worked great for me. Bought a cheap GPS module:

     
    And a pinheader to solder onto the OrangePi Zero board itself.

     
    The only thing I had to change was to swap the RX/TX wires, as a straight connection did not work for my GPS board.


     
    I did not have any success getting PPS to work through the USB connection (works as ttyACM). I had to use the GPIO dtb overlay and electrical connection as per your tut.
