  1. Just received my Pinebook Pro this week. I get roughly 8 to 10 hours of battery life out of it with moderate usage. It can be charged/powered from a micro USB-C port, so a power bank will extend battery life. Performance is actually good, especially for the price.
  2. Wow - that is hot. Do you have a heat sink on that? Mine is also in the case running OpenVPN and is reporting 50°C. A Orange Pi R1 (that is very similar to the Zero) is sitting at my desk without case is reporting 34°C with a little heat sink. An Orange Pi One built into a dummy camera case is running at 27°C (with 5°C ambiant temperature and a medium sized heat sink) running Pi-Hole and motion. Is there a way to give the while loop some miliseconds sleep? That might help to keep things a bit cooler.
  3. 512MB is available for the Orange Pi Zero. In case you do not need the 2nd Ethernet port. Other thhan that the R1 and the Zero are basically identical. With nothing installed the system should be stable though. At least mine was until I started doing things that are a bit too much for the 256MB Ram. As already suggested: - Try a different power supply. - Try a different SD card. Those 2 things are most critical to most SBCs. I started to like SBCs that come with barrel plugs instead of micro sd for power. Also industrial sd cards are not much more expensive compared to consumer cards, but should be a bit more robust.
  4. @guidol: Here is the picture you requested. My standoff skrews look a bit diffrent compared to the ones you used. I also added a bit of tape between the coil ant the ethernet port is has contact to. It is powered by the 3Amp Power Supply supplied by Orange Pi. After starting over with a fresh build I tried syncthing instead of Nextcloud. Not exactly doing the same thing, but good enough to use it as a phone backup cloud. Was hitting some errors when large amounts of pictures were synchronized. This happens if I add a new phone to the cloud: Message from syslogd@localhost at Oct 25 22:29:05 ... kernel:[ 4736.779625] Internal error: Oops: 5 [#1] SMP THUMB2 Message from syslogd@localhost at Oct 25 22:29:05 ... kernel:[ 4736.885415] Process syncthing (pid: 1805, stack limit = 0x212b8102) Message from syslogd@localhost at Oct 25 22:29:05 ... kernel:[ 4736.891691] Stack: (0xc3641e28 to 0xc3642000) Message from syslogd@localhost at Oct 25 22:29:05 ... kernel:[ 4736.896063] 1e20: 001a1ea6 c0f2a9c0 c0e08bc4 c0e04d48 006000c0 c0213275 Tried a few things to figure out the issue: Lowered CPU frequency to 648MHz. Tested RAM with memtester. Wrote a few gigabyte to the msata SSD via dd. Switched from eth0 to usb ethernet. --> All with nothing looking problematic. Say - it all worked without errors. Then watched htop while adding a new larger folder to the sync cloud --> System looked frozen (Actually was just terrible slow). htop looked like this indicating that I was running out of memory: pi@orangepi:~$ htop 1 [||||| 13.4%] Hostname: orangepi 2 [||||||||| 27.2%] Tasks: 24, 149 thr; 2 running 3 [|||||| 16.2%] Load average: 3.10 2.34 1.25 4 [||||||| 16.3%] Uptime: 1 day, 12:51:08 Mem[|||||||||||||||||||||207M/239M] CpuFreq1: 816 MHz Swp[|||||||||||||||||||||119M/120M] CpuFreq2: 816 MHz Cpu Temp: 37 C CpuFreq3: 816 MHz Added a 512M swap file to the SSD. Now it seems to run stable.
  5. Just installed Armbian_5.90_Orangepi-r1_Debian_buster_next_4.19.57.img on my new R1 too yesterday. I have the NAS-Board attached to it with an 256 Transcend msata SSD Was working fine, could partition, format and mount the SSD. Then started to install Nextcloud from armbian-config software menu. Started fine first, but then showed kernel messages popping up until it completely froze. Rebooted by powering up and rerun the installation leaving me with a non-functional Nextcloud installation. Just resetet it now by burning the image again on the SD card - maybe I wanted too much from that little board with only 256 MB.
  6. My Zero ver. 1.5 in the black case with the expansion board attached reports 50°C right after booting and settles at around 46°C shortly after. There is no heatsink on the SOC yet and load on the system is pretty low (only using it as OpenVPN Gateway). I can live with that temperatures as they seem to be stable over time so far.
  7. Wondering what the OMV Image is made of. It is for the Raspberry PI, but is Armbian based.
  8. Just found this thread after googling around to see if PiVPN works with Armbian on an Orange Pi Zero 512MB. Can confirm that it workes perfectly fine on Armbian 5.91 using and Orange Pi Zero H2+ 512 MB Board. Allows me to shut down my open ports on my router :-) Yeah. This is my 3rd Board using Armbian now. 1) Orange Pi One as Pi-hole and Webcam 2) Orange Pi Lite as Webcam 3) Orange Pi Zero as PiVPN Just had to donate to Armbian. This stuff is working very good.
