  1. lanefu's post in update in buster is failing with redirection from https to 'http://armbian.tnahosting.net/apt/dists/buster/Release' is forbidden was marked as the answer   
    Change https://apt.armbian.com to http and see if that helps
  2. lanefu's post in Issues: Forum vs. GitHub was marked as the answer   
    Hi great question.  Def can be confusing.  We're working to be more clear.
    GitHub issues (NOT PRs) are meant to be specific to the Armbian build engine and not specific to devices.
    Raise device issues on forum for conversation and hopefully find the attention of a maintainer.  (Part of reason we do it on forum is it creates too much noise on GitHub for such a small team of devs)
    If it's an issue a maintainer or armbian developer thinks it needs to be prioritized, they will add to our Jira
    For those that don't like posting on forum anybody can open a draft PR with a proposed solution and explanation of what's being solved in GitHub

    Re: binfmt.

    if using lxc the container.
    you need to execute it with more priviledges
    if you are already, or are using lxc the VM
    your kernel needs to be ubuntu's -generic kernel rather than the -virtual kernel... -virtual doesn't have binfmt support in it the last time I checked. 

    misc building tips.. I personally hate the LIB_TAG thing.. and prefer to just force it to use whatever branch I'm using.. here's a hint for that https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/#using-alternate-armbian-builder-repos-and-branches

    How to build from the kernel source you want and love armbian builder

    As we mentioned. it's not that the armbian build checkout has changed the minor release. it's that the upstream has (it's a weakness we have).   So you're going to want to specify your own kernel branch/commit/target etc by hand.


    So step 1.. we need to figure out what "family" your odroidn2 is

    lane@billroyall:~/GIT/build$ fgrep -i FAMILY config/boards/odroidn2.conf BOARDFAMILY="meson-g12b"
    okay.. it's part of the meson-g12b family


    hmmmm ---- code { font-family: Consolas,"courier new"; color: crimson; background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2); padding: 2px; font-size: 105%; } source "${BASH_SOURCE%/*}/include/meson64_common.inc"
    okay lets look at its common include

    code { font-family: Consolas,"courier new"; color: crimson; background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2); padding: 2px; font-size: 105%; } branch:linux-5.10.y

    alright so.. it's just following the linux-5.10.y branch.. hence the minor release update....  and since no explicit kernel source is specified.. we can assuming it's using the default mainline


    which means hunting here https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux.git/log/?h=linux-5.10.y


    and lucky for us there's a tag
    so in theory you should be able to create the file  code { font-family: Consolas,"courier new"; color: crimson; background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2); padding: 2px; font-size: 105%; } userpatches/sources/meson-g12b.conf

    block device names can vary especially on USB.... it's best practices to use UUIDs or LABELS to mount filesystems.

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

    Also take a look at 



    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

    Blerg.  The error is telling the truth.  Most likely mirror sync.     Mirror validation is something for us to work on next.

    Hi @Rein We don't support any Raspberry Pi boards.   We focus on alternate SBCs that have less attention and community.
