  1. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    @tkaiser, that just crashed my H96Pro+ remote at home. Let's see if can run this while i'm closer to it
  2. A5X MAX RK3328 4GB/16GB

    Disclamier: i'm a total n00b on this! Reminds me of when i tried to boot my H96Pro+ with "not one of the correct" DTB, all i saw was a red light and nothing on the screen. Could be something similar. If it's not booting Android from the eMMC, it's a good sign that it tries to boot from SD card? But if the SD card reader is NOT on sdio0, then bummer
  3. A5X MAX RK3328 4GB/16GB

    @srx: that button behind one of the audio jack is the reset button as @exquisitus points out. At least on my H96Pro+, it must be pressed inside while powering up in order to activate boot from mSDcard reader. Yet another one Beelink A1 RK3328. Compared to A5X MAX (which i've and not yet unboxed at home), it also has 1GbE Question is if we can run Linux on it.

    After a reboot of the box: root@amlogic:~# for i in {0..7};do cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu$i/cpufreq/scaling_governor;done cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu2/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu3/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu4/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu5/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu6/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory cat: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu7/cpufreq/scaling_governor: No such file or directory I can't see cpufreq module to load, hmm.

    @Jens Bauer Sure, i'd have loved to put a bigger heatsink and a small fan, if that helps to achieve higher speeds. But now as @tkaiser mentions it, i can recall the Amlogic cheating revelations i read at CNX-soft thoug! Here is what i got from StabilityTester: Done testing stability by using both ondemand and performance scaling governors: Frequency: 667000 Voltage: 3300000 Success: 1 Result: 0.0048034 Frequency: 1000000 Voltage: 3300000 Success: 1 Result: 0.0048034 Frequency: 1200000 Voltage: 3300000 Success: 1 Result: 0.0048034 Although the thermal readings doesn't work on this box: Testing frequency 1200000 Soc temp:cat: /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp: No such file or directory Soc temp: CPU Freq: 1200000 CPU Core: 3300000 cat: /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp: No such file or directory Soc temp: CPU Freq: 1200000 CPU Core: 3300000 cat: /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp: No such file or directory Anyway, i guess i'm also subject to their cheating since i can get max 1.2Ghz even with all small cores disabled.

    Yep When all cores enabled, it's 4 x 1.512Ghz + 4 x 1Ggz according to lshw -c cpu. root@amlogic:~# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies 100000 250000 500000 667000 1000000 1200000 1512000 root@amlogic:~# I've only seen big cores at 1512Mhz even when i disable the small 4 cores. How can we get 2Ghz?

    I'm also testing tightvncserver and there are issues with LXDE. Mate-session works, but it can't automatically resize screen size. Also, when i used the box as a vncviewer, the resizing doesn't work, i get a black area at bottom for instance when i choose full screen. I'd like to use one of the boxes as a vnc/spice client and another as a server
  9. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Since i got a couple of S905X boxes at home, i gave Nexbox A95X S905X a try, boots with multiple DTB, but only meson-gxbb-nexbox-a95x.dtb seems to be able to boot into ldm/mate. But there is no response from USB mouse nor keyboard. As USB is supported now, what could this be? EDIT: images being tested are from 20170907.
  10. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    Is anyone running Docker aarch64/arm64v8 images on this? I'm able to run armhf/arm32v7 images, but all the arm64v8 images crash. According to 'uname' it's 64-bits kernel so i wonder what the issue is with the Docker.
  11. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    If possible, please upload the latest image here: https://my.owndrive.com/index.php/s/vNynzw9pk5fIYhT
  12. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    I can't get your updated image @balbes150 since Yandex Disk seems to have issues
  13. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    Awesome! Will try this tonight already! Another question: every time i upgrade, i loose the full setup i have on my SD card? Now that i've installed Docker, LXC etc i'd like to avoid it.
  14. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    Copy to SD card? You mean extracting the image onto an SD card i.e using e.g dd? Here is what i did: 1. I downloaded your image from that YT video link 2. xz -d <imagename>.img.xz 3. dd if=<imagename>.img of=/dev/sdc bs=16M oflag=direct 5. Copied the correct dtb.img to the root of /BOOT 4. Took the SD card out of my USB adapter and inserted into H96 Pro+ 5. Booted up to see the H96 initial image, then to loose the output on HDMI/TV.

    Is this SW accelerated X? Do you have a link so that i can give it a try as well?
