  1. I am compiling the armbian for orangePi3, using the armbian tools ... and the compilation works fine. It works both from the kernel_only and from the entire image But I have a problem with the current version of the kernel, because it turns out that it does not support the hdmi-vga adapter and I would like to compile the 5.07 kernel instead of the 5.10. I have found in the doc but I do not find how to indicate to the script that it has to compile version 5.07 of the kernel. Inside the file config-default.conf I do not see where to put the version. The documentation: It is insufficient and does not do much to solve this problem. Can someone help? regards MaX
  2. [ error ] ERROR in function prepare_host [ ] [ error ] Running this tool on non x86-x64 build host in not supported .... so I need to use an x86-x64 tu build an arm kernel? Why? the arm platform is not reliable enough to compile a kernel?
  3. The problem is in the kernel! Today I copied the 5.07 kernel version, from the Armbian 5.82, that I have in the mmc on the 5.87 that I have in the SDcard. Now Armbian 5.87 works perfectly, so the problem is in the kernel that for some reason leaves the black screen on orangePi3 using the hdmi-VGA adaper. My idea is now, to try to compile the linux kernel directly in orangePi 5.82, then install it on the SDcard, and verify if it works (or not). One question, I want to compile only the kernel and not the entire distribution. Can I use the old Debian methods, or do I have to use the repository at and then use the kernel_only option? Note for me, to remember in the future: In order to use an old kernel in a SDcard you have to: rename (on the SDcard) the boot folder in boot.original copy the boot folder from the functioning installation in the sdcard Copy and replace the file armbianEnv.txt from the folder /boot.original to /boot copy from the functioning installation to SDcard, the modules in /lib/modules/<KernelVersion>
  4. I'm using a newly purchased kingston 16GB sdcard. But I think the micro sdcard do not have the "read only" switch. So I do not understand this error. Should I change the sd card?
  5. I tested the build today 18/05/2019 and it continues with the black screen of my vga lcd of 19". But I searched in the basement for my old 17 "screen (Hyundai lcd) and ... bingo! The screen shows the start of armbian boot. But there is a big problem, everything is shifted to the right (to 1/3) and the text disappears to the right side. The digital information on the screen tells me that it is running at 1280x960 60hz. If I try to move the text to the left, using the buttons on the display it tells me that it is already at maximum and there is a small blinking line to the left at bottom. Everything points to a problem of synchronization of the refresh in the output hdmi. Problem that version 5.82 did not have Note that I am using the original hdmi -> vga adapter from the orangePi store.
  6. ok, finally I boot from the mmc armbian 5.82, and mounted the 5.87 version of 17/05/2019 in the SD card, then chroot, armbianmonitor -u and here you can see the kernel logs I hope can help regards MaX Note for the future: $ sudo su # cd /media... SDcard path # mount -t proc /proc proc/ # mount -t sysfs /sys sys/ # mount -o bind /dev dev/ # chroot . # armbianmonitor -u # exit
  7. Hi in the last build of 17/05/2019, armbian won't boot and there are a black display My board is a opi3 2gbram + mmc 8GB The board is working, because in the mmc, I have installed an old version (5.82) and I can bood from the SD card with android 7 get form here: I tried to connect via ssh from another computer, and it's works, I login, changed the default passwd, but after 1 or 2 minutes, the opi3 reboot and from this moment, the reboot is every 30-40 seconds so I don't have the time to login again with ssh I tried again following this doc: # nano /boot/boot.cmd disp.screen0_output_mode=1280x720p60 # mkimage -C none -A arm -T script -d /boot/boot.cmd /boot/boot.scr but nothing it doesn't works Now I will try to use the debian build image version instead ubuntu one....
  8. Hi the last build, ... my in OrangePi3+emmc-2GBram, can't boot correctly. I'm using the hdmi-> vga adapter that they sell in the orangepi store on aliexpress and their original 3A power supply. I get black screen and continuous reboot every 30-40 seconds. I have no way to debug and give more information. I think it's a panic kernel and the system reboot automatically. My display is a lcd - 1440x900_60 from LG I have also installed in the 8GB internal mmc the version and it works correctly after some minor tweaks. (no reboot, no black screen) I think we should set the default resolution of the console to 1024x768 and not a higher one, in the case that is what causes the black screen. Not everyone has a 1080p display
  9. Mini tutorial I am putting here some notes for posterity In the current version of armbian (testing H6) I use X11 / Xorg only reaches 1024x768, but my display reaches 1440x900. To add this new resolution to the list of Settings/Display you have to give these commands: # xrandr --listmonitors (this command serves to see what it's called, the hdmi output) # cvt 1440 900 (output: # 1440x900 59.89 Hz (CVT 1.30MA) hsync: 55.93 kHz; pclk: 106.50 MHz Modeline "1440x900_60.00" 106.50 1440 1528 1672 1904 900 903 909 934 -hsync +vsync ) # xrandr --newmode "1440x900_60.00" 106.50 1440 1528 1672 1904 900 903 909 934 -hsync +vsync # xrandr --addmode HDMI-1 1440x900_60.00 # xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1440x900_60.00 If it works then modify Xorg with: # mcedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-monitor.conf Section "Monitor" Identifier "HDMI-1" Modeline "1440x900_60.00" 106.50 1440 1528 1672 1904 900 903 909 934 -hsync +vsync Option "PreferredMode" "1440x900" EndSection # reboot
  10. Hi, I tried to install on my orangepi3 the last image of 05/15/2019 But it gives me a panic kernel when it does the boot. So I've gone back to the old version 5.82.190423 and I've updated with apt-get When it has rebooted there was the black screen Before starting the update, the resolution of the display was 1024x768 and its maximum resolution is 1440x900. How do you restore the resolution of the console to 1028x768? I can access to console from another computer via ssh... regards MaX
  11. a question, on the server almost all the images have disappeared. Only some old ones have remained. What happens?
  12. You are right! I just send a little contribution via paypal
  13. This build is a ROCK!! I'm working with her all day. I've done graphics with gimp and inkscape. I have written documents with libreoffice, I have used the browser for the internet with several tabs open and answering a forum like this. I have compiled the Marlin firmware (for 3D printers) with Arduino IDE (the last one) ... and everything rolling on wheels. I have copied 1GB circa file size, from an external hard drive to the internal emmc, by usb3 and it is very very fast. I have downloaded files, installed programs with apt without problems. We have already begun to see the light at the end of the tunnel? I do not think it is too long to have a distribution stable enough for daily use. There are minor problems, such as the firmware path for wifi, then some launchers in the xfce4 menu that do not work and some warnings. You have to check if the Bluetooth works ... I have not tried it to install yet. but, I'm happy with this system. It is not more unstable than a SID in Debian :)
  14. No idea, I'm new in this world... my monitor is 1440x900.... (a bit larger of 720p) and both xorg and the console automactly self adapt theys resolutions. I think that in a 1080p monitor the system is supported from armbian and the H6 boards
