    alchemist got a reaction from hartraft in vanilla kernel 5.15 and fancontrol   
    Hi,
     
    I thought this forum did support on the Helios{4,64} regardless of the OS since Kobol is now closed.
    More, the issues I encounter testing the Armbian patches can be helpful for the future Armbian releases (I had the eMMC issues long time before many Armbian users were impacted with the Buster update).
    I did tried to apply the Armbian patches for kernel 5.15, but they fail because Helios4 and 64 are now mainlined.
     
    But not problem, I will try to fix it by myself, and report back the solution here. I have the skills to do it.
    BTW I have the same issue with vanilla kernel 5.15 and Helios4. I will test it first on the helios4 because it's not used anymore.
     
    Kind regards,
    Xavier Miller

    alchemist got a reaction from IcerJo in vanilla kernel 5.15 and fancontrol   
    Hi!
     
    I am trying the vanilla 5.15 kernel which has support for helios64.
    The system is booting, disks, MMC and network are working.
     
    But fancontrol fails.
    It seems the /sys entries have changed and the udev rules are not working.
     
    I've tried to understand the wiki page in order to adapt the udev rules and fancontrol config file but I am a little bit lost.
    Is there updated versions of those config files?
     
    Kind regards,
    Xavier Miller.

    alchemist got a reaction from ebin-dev in Upgrading to Bullseye (troubleshooting Armbian 21.08.1)   
    YEAH !
    I can compile and boot linux-5.10.63, I only had to disable the rk3328 patches because some patches were rejected.
     
    I booted from sdcard, updated the /boot folder, then rebooted from eMMC and I can again run and write on the eMMC :-)
     
     
    EDIT: and upgraded to 5.10.64 this weekend without any issue

    Hi!
     
    If I remove the patches that don't compile and adapt the other ones, the resulting kernel is having issues with eMMC or unbootable kernel (u-boot does bootloops).
     
    I even tried some older versions that did work (i.e. recompile one of my ancient kernels with vanilla sources + gentoo patches +  armbian patches) and it fails. But I didn't do it with method, I wanted to have a stable kernel to have back my "production" home server.
     
    The kernel I run is now " 5.10.34-gentoo #1 SMP Mon May 3 10:47:06 CEST 2021 aarch64 GNU/Linux", the version I had in one backup. After May 3 2021 I had issues with u-boot (kernel did not boot) or not compiling patches.
     
    I can help you (armbian poeple) to point the problems. In fact, I would like to rebuild all the provides binaries (u-boot, kernel) myself in order to understand how they are working and configured.

    alchemist got a reaction from IcerJo in is there an updated kernel status?   
    I am talking about patches provided by armbian. They still continue to support our Helios64 :-)

    alchemist got a reaction from gprovost in Recovery: (too) short delay between UMS and Maskrom modes   
    yeah, but the feeling is less than 2 seconds. Can it because the flashing starts after the message (no lit, then lit)?
     
    Meanwhile, I have my custom kernel and OS (Gentoo Linux), they run fine :-)

    Hi!
     
    I will then boot from SPI NOR flash. The boot order is OK, I can then boot a "system rescue" from USB, or run armbian on sd as fall-back.
     
    I can run Gentoo with one binary linked on the wiki page you pointed out, empty environment, and a minimal boot.scr on SATA
