    JerryPenguin reacted to dolphs in Banana Pi M3   
    Looks like meanwhile the M3 entered a matured state , at least from " " menu - did not notice till recent.
    Anyway was wondering if things improved running kernel 5.8 and onwards , mainly in terms of " A83T chip isn’t SATA capable and therefore the SATA port is provided by a (very) slow GL830 USB-to-SATA-bridge "
    So therefore still worth buying a separate USB-to-SATA bridge if you want to connect a hard disk? bummer it is "just" 2.0 but what to expect as board is being produced from somewhere 2015 I believe.
    In terms of octa core systems ( 1,8Ghz ) this looks still a nice pick

    JerryPenguin reacted to Franky66 in Odroid N2 + C4 (Debian with OMV5) - latest Kernel Updates (4.9 + 5.8) breaks boot   
    I am using two Odroid N2 and a new Odroid C4. The N2 installation with OMV5 is using Kernel 4.9.236 actually and the C4 is using the kernel 5.8 used in the latest download image for debian buster. When I try to install newer kernels after the following linux kernel packages the installation gets broken and the odroids are not booting anymore.
    There is also no output on hdmi to see what problem could be exist. On Odroid N2 I hear the USB drives starting, stopping, starting and then nothing happens.
    All other updates are installing without problems in rebooting. The N2 are using on my test N2 a micro sd card and on my prod n2 a emmc card. The C4 is also using a emmc card.
    Can someone help to fix this or are there other persons using these odroids with same problems?
    Here are the actually installed packages without problems:
    ii  linux-dtb-legacy-meson64          20.08.6                             arm64        Linux DTB, version 4.9.236-meson64
    ii  linux-image-legacy-meson64        20.08.6                             arm64        Linux kernel, version 4.9.236-meson64
    And here is the output from installing the newer kernel which is actually available
