  1. Hi, you can try, but take care of changing the dtb to use quartz64. My last try was successful and most basic features were working well.
  2. In fact, you should be able to build an image for this board by building one for station m2 and modifying the dtb file in the board config file https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/boards/station-m2.conf To add it as a independent board, you have more files to create/modify like in the examples provided by Werner and Igor at the beginning of this thread.
  3. What are you're current state? I tested one of the lastest station m2 image from Balbes150 (kernel 5.16-rc6) and after changing the dtb in extlinux.conf to the one of quartz64-a, then it boots well. My first impression is quite good! I'm able to boot, configure and install to emmc. I just identify that the single usb2 and usb3 ports are not active, only the 2 grouped usb2.0 ports works.
  4. If the main difference with original armbian is mainly relating to this code, I would prefer to fork armbian and apply similar modifications afterwards. Then, changing u-boot and kernel sources are mainly here to use specific patches, but it is sometimes difficult to understand them and combine them so that it works.
  5. I suppose that most images generated by Balbes150 are from his github repository: https://github.com/150balbes/build So you may be able to access sources and build an image by yourself.
  6. Hi, you can also give a try to Balbes150 images for station m2: In my opinion, the main problem is the dtb that should be adapted from rock pi3a or station m2, but the image should boot and some basics features (SoC related) may work depending on the kernel version. Other features related to additional hardware (eth,wlan,usb,etc.) may be different and need dts modifications.
  7. Khadas vim2 image can be a good alternative if it works on your box: https://www.armbian.com/khadas-vim2/ But be careful and maybe don't install it on emmc.
  8. Hi, I'm looking at this too, but I'm new to Ansible and starting to learn about it. I've forked autotests and started to play with playbooks and roles. My modest additions can be viewed here: https://github.com/jeanrhum/autotests As I understand, QA repository is the new way to go and all must be built from scratch. I'll continue my expriments on my side, waiting for guidelines on QA to see if I can help in some way.
  9. Hi, I can help in some development tasks, but I've not enough time and experience to do more.
  10. Just to complete the answer of jock, you have to look at the VPU (video processing unit) support. For Rockchip Socs its name is hantro.
  11. Your question is not related to Armbian and you should have the answer by yourself depending on your needs and use cases. Is your laptop based on an arm soc and are you running Armbian on it?
  12. I faced the same issue on rock pi 4c and installing slick-greeter also solved the problem.
  13. Hi Malaga, Your question is not directly related to armbian or any relevant OS for a given board, but it is more a question about docker itself and how it manages data: https://docs.docker.com/storage/ On dockerhub, you'll find most images where the data specific to the encapsulated software is binded to a local folder by setting the relevant volume. Look for instance to this image: https://hub.docker.com/r/linuxserver/nextcloud where -v /path/to/appdata:/config defines the location where your can access to the config files from the host operating system and -v /path/to/data:/data corresponds to the data stored with nextcloud so that you can target any local drive properly configured and mounted from the host operating system.
  14. Nice possibilities, have you tried something? What are the requirements to do that (kernel version, patchset...)? ps: a more readable version of your link (even if rst is not too bad): https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/devicetree/overlay-notes.html
