    You right. No excuse on our side, we are behind schedule and not up to expectation on the software maturity, maybe we should have stick LK4.4 (from rockchip) and forget about Linux mainline for now :-/
    However we are still working at improving the stability and we are optimistic that very soon, it will get better.
     
    Right now as you know LK5.8.16 is for some reason (we still can't figure out) unstable vs 5.8.14
    We also realized that OMV install was removing some tx offloading tweak. So a lot of little things here and there that we only discover along the way.
     
    BTW regarding this crash are you sure tx offload on eth1 was disable ?

    Finally, Globalscale did the trick and pushed the modifications, that they had added to make 17.10 stable for all EspressoBin-Boards, to 18.12 as well. Thanks a lot, Globalscale!!
     
    Unfortunately, they did this in their repos and not in the official Marvell repos. I extracted the changes and made a pull request at the Marvell repo. I hope the changes will be merged soon, because I can then use the official Armbian build tools to generate a U-Boot/firmware that flawlessly works with my EspressoBin v7 DDR4 1cs 1GB boards. For now, I compile using the Globalscale repo and got a really stable firmware (tested on three boards for now), I am using the mainline U-Boot (2020.10), too and have no problems – but have not tested this with PCIe periphery (like wifi or SATA adaptors).

    lanefu reacted to Myy in Architecture for adding additional desktop enviromnents, and application groups   
    Greetings,
     
    I'm currently modifying the Armbian build system, making it easier to add new desktop environments and application groups.
     
    This architecture is subject to heavy modifications until it is merged with the current Armbian build system.
     
    A repository with the modified build system is available here : https://github.com/Miouyouyou/armbian-desktop
     
    Currently, I only tested adding Ubuntu Focal + XFCE and application groups, since I had to make sure that
    the postinst and create_desktop_package.sh were actually aggregated correctly, now that they're split into multiple files,
    and, for comparison, we only have such scripts for XFCE.
     
    Also :
    the current list of packages for XFCE include unrelated packages (like neverball), added to test the packages files aggregation; there's a lot of debug messages added here and there, in order to have an overview of the current build state.  
    The actual packages list for other desktop environments and distributions, along with the scripts, still have to be added. (They're currently empty)
     
    That said, I'd like to have a few maintainers test (quickly) the new architecture, in order to check if there isn't any obvious feature missing.
     
     
    So, here's how to add a desktop environment with the new architecture :
     
    Adding a desktop environment
     
    Currently, only official repositories are supported.
     
    Let's say that you want to add that new desktop environment "superduperde", that is now available on official on Debian/Ubuntu repositories.
    First, focus on one specific distribution like focal (Ubuntu) or buster (Debian). In our example, will take focal.

    We'll create our first configuration 'full', which should provide the DE along with all its specific apps, widgets and the kitchen sink.
     
    Create the directory config/desktop/focal/environments/superduperde/config_full Create the file config/desktop/focal/environments/superduperde/config_full/packages Open the packages file, add the list of packages for apt.  
    Then select it in the configuration menu, or pass the following variables to ./compile.sh :
    BUILD_DESKTOP="yes" RELEASE="focal" DESKTOP_ENVIRONMENT="superduperde" DESKTOP_ENVIRONMENT_CONFIG_NAME="config_full"
    Then test the resulting image !
     
    Adding an appgroup
     
    Appgroups are roughly the same. Let's say that you want to add remotecontrol to the appgroups for Ubuntu focal :
     
    Create the directory config/desktop/focal/appgroups/remotecontrol Create the file config/desktop/focal/appgroups/remotecontrol/packages Open the packages file, add the list of packages for apt.  
    Tale a look at https://github.com/Miouyouyou/armbian-desktop#the-architecture-added-to-the-build-system, for a more detailed documentation of the new architecture, and how to add special packages files for specific boards, and desktop configurations, along with specific debian/postinst and armbian/create_desktop_packages.sh files.
     
     
    What needs to be quickly tested :
     
    Modifying an existing desktop environment (gnome, kde, ...). Adding a new desktop environment or window manager (mate-desktop, i3, fluxbox, ...) Adding a new appgroup Bonus points for adding a desktop environment with Wayland support (but remember that default installations come with terrible OpenGL support on most boards !)

    lanefu reacted to Technicavolous in Do you recommend Espressobin?   
    I just recently broke out my Espressobin v5 and put the latest Armbian, and new uboot and script. Runs fine and my OMV appears so far to be quite stable.  I have a Marvell pcie 4 port sata card on it with a 4 port hotswappable 2.5 inch drive bay that is moving data fairly decently (80mb /s or so) between fairly slow machines with a low end gigabit router in between. Its booting from Sata - I used dd from an x86 linux box to burn the image directly to an inexpensive 128gb drive.
     
    I've always loved the Espressobin, nice little board and now Armbian has breathed new life into it - thanks Armbian and thanks for armbian-config!

    If someone could try the script for me and inform if it works? Also updated meson version to meson_0.55.3-1.
    Should I also include the oibaf repo? Or doesn't this work anymore?
    I'll try it later, first need to do other tests. Cheers.
