  1. you want buffers to be flushed directly so the drive does not spin up whenever the kernel decides it needs to flush. IMHO I wouldn't recommend it (esp in RAID), consumer disks aren't as loud as 20 years ago and spinning up is the point where drives fail most. Early USB disks where prone to early catastrophic fails due to USB power mgmt.
  2. What does below yield? % cat /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/temp1_input /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp /etc/armbianmonitor/datasources/soctemp
  3. If you're planning to do 4K do read https://forums.plex.tv/t/info-plex-4k-transcoding-and-you-aka-the-rules-of-4k/378203
  4. odd, both zeropi (http://ix.io/2DtK) and opipc+ (http://ix.io/2DEm) have ok temps (though 7z does not finish) and do not throttle below 80; buster is somewhat leaner than focal (~2C). have you run without X (acceleration?)
  5. I had connectivity issues on 5.4 earlier which resolved by mounting with vers=2.1, you might try that
  6. might consider Epyc with 8 channels, 16 dimm slots and better I/O, memory is "cheap"/upgradeable upto 1TB. Best of luck!
  7. https://apt.armbian.com/armbian.key if the image is signed by Igor's key then it is an 'authentic' image. If signature verification fails due whatever reason (be it modification afterwards) the image is not authentic. The SHA hash only verifies the image but not who creates the SHA hash, for this you have signature verification. So, if either SHA, image or asc file are maliciously altered on server, you still have signature verification to verify it's an authentic image (which fail in case of modification, because it requires access to Igor's key to sign).
  8. Try cross-compiling with -mfloat-abi=soft -static, all libraries on your armbian image are armhf: % dpkg -S libm.so libc6:armhf: /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libm.so.6 libc6-dev:armhf: /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libm.so
  9. On my headless machines I usually skip user creation and enable SSH pubkey login only after transferring my key (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SSH_keys) IMHO the reason for not allowing root login (whether SSH or getty) is both to prevent wreaking havoc on the system by accident and not running processes elevated by default (which is a good security measure -- privileged account management). I'm just too lazy to type sudo as I do only configuration/package/service management on the machines.

  11. Dependency on binary blobs will eventually render your system useless... and somehow I suspect GPU libraries/drivers are intentionally closed source partly due to the patent-riddled 3D ecosystem
  12. After you've imported the public key with step 1: % gpg --verify Armbian_20.08.1_Zeropi_bionic_current_5.8.5.img.xz.asc gpg: assuming signed data in 'Armbian_20.08.1_Zeropi_bionic_current_5.8.5.img.xz' gpg: Signature made Thu 03 Sep 2020 04:20:28 PM CEST gpg: using RSA key DF00FAF1C577104B50BF1D0093D6889F9F0E78D5 gpg: checking the trustdb gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found gpg: Good signature from "Igor Pecovnik <igor@armbian.com>" [unknown] gpg: aka "Igor Pecovnik (Ljubljana, Slovenia) <igor.pecovnik@gmail.com>" [unknown] gpg: WARNING: This ke
  13. The transcoding is handled by the jellyfin-ffmpeg package, which is basically a fork of ffmpeg. You can specify your own path to ffmpeg binary in settings, as the supplied binary is linked with raspberry libs (which is the only rpi specific code of jellyfin). Raspberry pi is ok for VPU. @Wernertry jellyfin on your NEO3 and compile ffmpeg with --enable-version3 --enable-rkmpp --enable-drm Personally I don't use transcoding but leave it all to the RPI3 (LibreElec) which happily plays all formats from SMB except for 10bit x265.
  14. Does thermal throttling work? At night cronjobs start which might overheat the board. Nonetheless, /etc/fake-hwclock.data should update by the hour, could you include hwclock -r and /etc/fake-hwclock.data?
  15. The fingerprint is a crypto hash over the public key which makes it easier to identify due to the smaller size.
