  1. The 1st time I installed Openhab was a few years back and it was on a TV Box variant of Armbian. Either the option to install Openhab wasnt in the Armbian Config Util on that build/system, or I missed it being in the list and would/should have used that. I ended up for various reasons having to rebuild and customize my install multiple times, plus I couldnt see much mention of Armbian on the Openhab forums and suffered some problems with Openhabian's install routine (which I think may(?) be resolved now). So, at the time I wrote a guide there, partly so I could remember everything
  2. @balbes150Re: Beelink GT-King, unstable when copying files etc... (sorry it took a while to get back to you). This is off a fresh imaged disk for "Armbian_20.05.4_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.7.0-rc4_desktop_20200510" Printenv Help Commands Thanks for taking a look.
  3. The commands I gave above... I found hidden away on Azul's website..... for these 3 lines: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 0xB1998361219BD9C9 sudo apt-add-repository 'deb stable main' sudo apt-get update and for this line (Azul Repository Tips section): sudo apt-get insta
  4. Just noticed this... Re Java, you need to use Azul Zulu Embedded v8 at the moment... OpenJDK and things like that are sluggish/slow Full details here Actual commands here: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 0xB1998361219BD9C9 sudo apt-add-repository 'deb stable main' sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install zulu-embedded-8
  5. I downloaded the images from here and the uart boot I show up in my post, is a freshly imaged Armbian on a USB SSD, using the meson-g12b-gtking.dtb that came with the image. (I tried multiple versions of Armbian and for a test, later, I tried the corelec DTB to see if it may work, which it didnt even boot Armbian).
  6. Is anyone running a Beelink GT-King and does your box remain stable OR lock-up/freeze when transferring data to/from SD/USB? Mine freezes completely when I transfer data around. My full post on it is here My system is a version 2.2 board the SA9X model. I also see an "Internal error: Oops: 96000004 [#1] PREEMPT SMP" in the UART logs (See spoiler for full logs) If your system is running stable... be it any revision, please let me know.... and if there are any tweaks/changes anyone can suggest to try.....??? Many thank
  7. @balbes150 Thanks for the reply. I appreciate that you dont have one of these with you to test/look at. Could I ask however.... would you think that this is an issue with the drivers within Ubuntu ... OR.... settings within the DTB file (frequencies/drivers used)? I have added the UART output of both Armbian's and Coreelec's DTB files, when booting Armbian with them... if there is anything you can see in those? (if you have the time to look) Armbian meson-g12b-gtking.dtb UART output Perhaps this is the relevant
  8. If its worth anything, this is my dmesg output, when I have booted with the Armbian GTKing DTB file and I am at the desktop/workspace screen (before it freezes)
  9. @balbes150(sorry to @ you and hope youre keeping well!!) I have a Beelink GT King, which its motherboard lists as being version 2.2-S922X-4G-64G/A It has a terrible stability problem using meson-g12b-gtking.dtb (I have tried the pro file as well as others in case, but it wont boot with those). The problem I am experiencing is that when any high level of file transfers occur, the system freezes. The mouse etc locks up, the time/clock freezes at the time of the system hanging and the system drops off the network (stops responding to ping). Ive tried multiple r
  10. I cant specifically speak for the debian build as Im mostly familiar with the Ubuntu build..... So ill talk about that and you can figure if Debian is similar. UBUNTU UPDATES On the Ubuntu version, you can either go into the Armbian configuration utility and the System menu and Firmware option OR you can at a terminal use: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade Perhaps even sudo apt-get dist-upgrade (never tried it, but this probably WILL remove some packages). This should obviously update all your software AND the upgrade will pull l
  11. Hi, not sure.... Ive just opened a fresh install of Armbian on a USB stick and the Extlinux.conf there shows the # in the place I originally indicated (copy/paste below) LABEL Armbian LINUX /zImage INITRD /uInitrd FDTDIR /dtb # FDT /dtb/meson-gxl-s905x-khadas-vim.dtb APPEND root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyAML0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes net.ifnames=0 The # may get changed/removed if/when you install to EMMC/NAND as the Extlinux.conf file is used for booting from EMMC/NAND
  12. Noticed this post with the question above... emmc to SD.... I wrote instructions on doing this+videos showing how to do it. Thought you might find them helpful if you wanted to do this for backups etc. Making a Backup of your emmc via the GUI - What you will need - All the commands/screens to perform this - Includes 1 x video showing the whole process Making a Backup of your emmc via Command line - What you will need - All the comma
  13. @Janaboy My rough (dont quote me) understanding of this is that its a mix of your DTB (Device Tree Blob) file and also actual driver files, hence trying different DTB files, with different results. The DTB file is basically telling the system which drivers to load at startup. I believe the Beelink Mini MXIII box has an Aigale AW-CM273SM and Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 for WiFi/Bluetooth.... And I have no idea if anyone has ever written a driver or if one of the DTB files activates the driver, though I can seem some references around the internet to people trying. So, if y
  14. @Janaboy Thanks, and glad it helped!! Im working on a slightly updated guide... and potentially going to collate a list/database of DTB files/boxes and what works/doesnt work (HDMI, WiFi etc) so its a bit easier to figure which DTB file to use... So Ill post something on that in the future!
  15. @imikei Youve not mentioned which box you have.... However I think you may end up needing to reset it back to factory (if its not even booting to the internal Android OS anymore), so Booting Problems section of this post. Once thats done, if youre sure your using the correct DTB for your box, Id suggest trying an earlier build of Armbian or one with a different kernel version to see if that gets you working. Im guessing you mean username/password at the initial text screen where you log in as root and change the passwords etc.
