  1. Thank a lot for your reply. And i apologize for not providing enough details. I figured out by now that the issue was completely on my side. One of the switch port wasn't working hence not forwarding Ethernet packets to the gateway Now i have one of the boxes, an MX Plus with S905, working with 1Gbit network. @SteeMan thanks again!
  2. I got couple of Amlogic S905 and S905x boxes. And i think i've used at least a 7-8 hours to see if i can get these to work again. I tried to use the lastest images with S905 boxes, and it is has been a real hassle to get it working. Some times i had to hook up an USB disk in addition to get it to boot the rootfs. And when i finally get into the OS, the network won't work. Both the built in Ethernet port and an USB Ethernet adapter. Both can detect a link, but unable to to receive IP from DHCP nor is it possible when manually assigned to get it to ping the GW. Is support for such devices by @balbes150still something that he still does?
  3. Is there any such box with Gbit Ethernet? What are the biggest differences of the these X3s vs the old X905 and X905X which i have several of?
  4. Anyone tried to run k8s/k3s on these? Last time i tried, it lacked some kernel cgroup features IIRC.
  5. I wonder the same since Google couldn't tell me that's this is can be bought as of today.

    Thanks for your advises @NicoD I have several use cases, which i've bought a couple of HP thin clients to see if they can cover my needs. This because i really got fed up with the I/O options of the boxes i've played with. Anyway, my uses cases are different, one of them being NAS, and i've seen a 4 port SATA NAS HAT by @mindee somewhere here i look forward to being tested/reviewed. Will that HAT work with this board? And based on your video review, i really like this board as i probably don't need to deal with heat dissipation due to the nice heatsink. Being able to feed it with current from power bank is a plus for me as i'm gonne bring this "computer" to south asia where power comes and goes :)

    @nicoD Fantastic video you made for this board. I really really want to order one after watching your video! Thanks a lot!
  8. Nice to see a low cost ARM SBC with BMC, pretty amazing. If the BMC will be reviewed working, i'll get one. Also, the I/O ability on this board seems fantastic! Seems $149 for the 4GB version.

    It's actually specified in the item ad: Power supply interface (5.5*2.5 standard interface) 12V 4A, which makes sense to be able to deliver 2A at max for 3.5" HDD startup power.

    Sorry i quoted the wrong link. The link is from your post at OMV site: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/HD622-PCBA-Board-USB-3-0-to-Dual-SATA-Adapter-Card-for-2-5-or-3-5inch-HDD-SSD/122211050288 I was thinking about the barrel DC in on this board and what kind of PSU i'd need. I really like these adapter as it saves me a lot of other adapters i've been buying lately to build a NAS from ARM SBC boards.

    Any suggestion to a PSU for this adapter board which seems pretty nice? I'm not sure about how that board would handle 12v/5v to the drives.
  12. I have been happy user of Vscission V88 Piano board for some months running Armbian and ZFS, but yesterday after some trouble rebooting like 20x after the box hang during an attempt to clone a Corsair 32GB USB drive, i can't get it to boot Armbian any longer! I've verified i'ts' not the SDcard nor the content in it (correct dtb.img etc) and i even downloaded another image from dl.armbian.com and tested a new SD card with no luck. It boots Android just fine when SD card is not inserted, but when inserted i see a red light and nothing on the screen. Sad since this one has enough RAM to run a lot of stuff. What could this be?
  13. I have 2 RK3288 devices, is it possible to test this off an SD-card before overwriting the eMMC? Edit: Never mind. README.txt gave me some more info and this script can only be installed once you have a running system. Now i need to find an image for my RK3288 TV-box!
  14. Thanks a lot @Jason Fisher Based on your feedback and invaluable hints and tips, i was finally able to get ZFS to compile/build on my V88 RK3328 box. I also did switch to experimental kernel (beta) and things went fine. Thank you very much!
