  1. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    A link was provided earlier in the thread by yours truly.
  2. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    Nah, why waste so much space? The most efficient way to do it looks like that: $ zcat Whatever_image_img.gz | sudo dd of=/dev/sdX bs=4M && sync For xz compressed images use xzcat obviously.

    Start with a 3.14 image and the dtb file that I'd linked to earlier in the thread.
  4. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Only the latter. Changing root's password and creating a user account has been compulsory for quite a while now on first boot.
  5. ROCK64

    I noticed the issue a few months ago, and, as the ARMv7 binaries produced the expected results in AARCH32 mode, I looked at the source and IIRC it was all about optimized assembly routines not present in the AARCH64 version. edit: In case I'm misremembering, it could have been about cpuminer results.

    This stuff used to work fine in the now discontinued S905-only VegaS95 images with the 3.14.79 kernel. Definitely worth bringing back, at least for S905 owners!

    Thanks @TonyMac32 , that was exactly the gist of my question

    Ugoos boxes are Linux ready OOTB, what about the topical cheapos though? I received one of those about a month ago but haven't even had time to unpack it

    Thanks for the link, my image version is probably: Armbian_5.27_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_mate_20170323 edit: Yes, that was the right config, WiFi works too. Thanks @balbes150

    It's not present in that image (3.14.29 kernel) Could you provide a link?

    We're talking about a standard Armbian 5.27 Ubuntu image from about a month ago, and yes, Mini M8S has 100M ethernet whereas the others have gigabit.

    @balbes150 What's the recommended dtb file for M8S mini S905? I've been testing a relatively recent desktop image + gxbb_p200_2G which works fine on both MXQ Pro+ and Beelink MiniMXIII but M8S ends up with a non-functioning LAN. The image that I normally use (3.14.79 based) + the old dtb format M8S file, brings up wired LAN just fine so it looks like a wrong dtb file. I think it shouldn't matter the same image ran on those other boxes I'd mentioned?
  13. preview Asus Tinkerboard

    Here's gl4es, likewise from France: Even though nothing beyond OpenGL 1.5 is supported, it should be fun to test, and besides, you might be the first to try it on a Tinker Board.

    The way you phrased the question means the answer probably entails just one step, namely, running /root/

    Nice to see it already has Android 5.1 so running termux should be useful/fun.
