  1. Thank you Igor - I googled some instructions which are perhaps out of date? I had no idea a simple menu based config was even built in! I'll have a play

  3. I understand linux is free and the work is appreciated, you have no idea, I wish I could contribute./ I'm in my 40's now, I've encountered linux in some form or another literally since the very late 90s with slackware. The issue here is that updating an operating system, using the CLI (which I'm ok with) fails, it simply shouldn't fail, PERIOD It should say as I said "jessie files are now in archive state, edit this file to fix' or "jessie files are now in archive, would you like latest version of jessie branch" - SOMETHING? Instead you've got at least 5 or 10 people across the web, inundating forums with "why the heck do I need to edit sources.list and what EXACTLY do I put there?" - from an end user perspective, arguably, linux is still showing incredibly poor end user design decisions over 20 years on. I don't expect a flashy animated box that says "fix all my problems" but the fact a simple update, won't work, because files were flagged as old is you know.. not great Anyhow - it is what it is, she's working ok now, and I appreciate the reply
  4. Put yourself in the seat of a Linux newbie. Apt get update and upgrade were "broken" for reasons out of our control I didn't do an update for a year. The update server no longer hosted the files I needed for Jessie. I couldn't update Jessie to the latest patch level, period. Without editing files. Others had the same issue. Linux experienced people can try and defend this but from a usability standpoint, this is terrible. Needs a far better error message or an option "Jessie is dead, but would you like the last of the files for it?" Bad design. None the less it's fixed now
  5. More often? I can do this I just want to avoid being so far behind, when I go to update, the repository has moved and I have to edit sources files ( a very unfriendly way of handling things, feels very 1999 linux like, I can't BELIEVE the way it works)
  6. Thanks to all those on this forum, across multiple threads helping me. End of the day, sadly, the best solution was a wiped SDCard (fill 0s) test SDcard (h2testw, full) and re-flash to the latest stretch. 3'rd SDCard a charm, it's booted, I've updated aptupd/upg and installed pihole and it appears to be working fine. Let's hope she stays that way. One thing, in order to avoid this problem in the future, since the jessie library /repository was moved (??) shouidl I make a habit of doing an apt-update / upgrade say once every 2 or 3 months to stay on top of things?
  7. Much like others, sadly my solution ended up being a fully wiped, tested SD card and re-install. Not fun overall.

  9. Thanks for your help, I was concerned because I know new models of Pi run very hot and have weirdo problems, I thought there was a slim chance there's a firmware update in Armbian which may have triggered something? (I know that sounds crazy, but isn't there Raspberry Pi firmware inside Raspbian?) Anyhow, I digress, I've tested a 3'rd SDcard in full and written it, I'll try it, if this fails, I suspect the Orange Pi is sadly toast ! Thanks for help, will update in a few days.
  10. I'm not sure to be honest if it's the card. I tend to use H2TestW before using cards (!!!) which should ensure they're fine! Check out the log. https://forum.armbian.com/topic/10712-orangepi-killing-sd-card-or-device-dying-unsure-bash-usrbinsudo-inputoutput-error/?tab=comments#comment-81090 I mean heck that card was quite new, maybe just a fluke, I'm sending out another one, if that fails then I'm super confused!
  11. Looks like I put a faulty SDCard in there by pure accident or there are bigger problems at play. Does OrangePi have issues with Stretch more than Jessie? read issues or any file system design issues? Faster clock on the firmware for the SDCard reader? (shrug) I update to stretch, system kills a card in a week Send a replacement card, kills it in 30 minutes
  12. I just had an OrangePi of mine at a customer site, die on me. It just stopped responding to ping, so I made them a new MicroSD card and mailed it out. Now I think the Pi hates the Stretch release or something and fries SD cards? Check this out: https://pastebin.com/KaMk70vS Literally first login! only been up 15 minutes
  13. Hi all, Downloaded it from here: https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-zero/ https://dl.armbian.com/orangepizero/archive/Armbian_5.83_Orangepizero_Debian_stretch_next_4.19.38.7z Wrote it to a 16GB MicroSD using rufus. . I'm going to be supporting this remotely (long story!!) but before mailing the SDCard to my tech at the other end, I noticed the partition is only 1GB in size. Is this normal? Will Armbian 'extract' or re-size the partition as part of the first install / boot process?
  14. Thanks for the reply. I had some progress but broke elsewhere. I think some major files may be damaged. https://forum.armbian.com/topic/10480-attempted-jessie-to-stretch-failed-likely-dead-on-reboot/ I may need something called busybox installed, which I do not have unfortunately.
