  1. I built also an image for M2S but I didn't tested hdmi audio. The second ethernet port was working, so I'm studying the device tree to check what is missing in mine.
  2. Good find! They fork armbian and add the board differently. I'll look at this to check how to take the good part from it. My main issue is about the second ethernet port (RTL8111H), for which I don't see how to make it work. I tried several device modifications but without any success.
  3. Hi, I don't have this board, but since it is from the same manufacturer, we can hope that the 2 boards share similar elements. For instance, the GbE ship is the same (RTL8211F), the same amount of emmc and ram. If you have the base board and an sd card, you can try to boot it. If you don't want to build an image by yourself, you can start by trying the Radxa zero2 image that was able to start my M2S board.
  4. Hi, This is my first try to add a board to armbian build system. I got a BPI M2S since several months, but only had time recently to investigate on this promising SBC. I made a PR here, if somebody wants to try it: https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/4597 The main improvements are to be done for the dts file, since I'm not an expert about such file definition. Only 1 ethernet of the Gbit ports is working, since I copy the config from vim3 that share the same hardware for it. I didn't try to customize u-boot and I use the one for radxa zero2 that works to launch armbian on the board. armbianmonitor -u is here: https://paste.armbian.com/piyuqajeye
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Hi, I can help in some development tasks, but I've not enough time and experience to do more.
  14. 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.
