  1. Thankyou all, that's answered a lot of my questions. A couple of simple, constructive suggestions: it would be really helpful to have notification of "no uninstall feature" right up front. It just helps to strategize how to use your images, SD cards and backups etc. (I think). the term "softy" doesn't come up in a search of the documentation, yet its right up top in Armbian configuration utility > Software. I confess I missed that completely. That's a problem if you pick up on softy by reading forum posts: "What the hell IS this thing everyone's talking about? Wher
  2. Hi. Finally have the time to get into this, and find the biggest problem i am having right now is conceptual. What is Softy? Why is it needed? Why is it better than installing from apt with a repository? How is its installed software managed, including updates? Also, I understand that there is no uninstall feature. In which case, how do manage system recovery? Say I install docker and omv and I've set up other bits and pieces like wifi and ssh, then I mistakenly install desktop. I want to uninstall desktop... It looks like I need to bust back down
  3. Hi Trying to install docker (arm64) via the debian documentation on Docker's website, but running into persistant problem with dpkg on docker-ce. This is a fresh install (good SD card) of Armbian_20.08.1_Nanopim4_buster_current_5.8.6.img. (Made with dd, I confess). No ssh yet, so I'll handtype the some terminal output: ... Job for docker.service failed because the control provess exited with error code. See systemctl status docker.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details. invoke-rc.d: initscript docker, action "start" failed. - docker.service - Docker Application Contain
  4. EDIT: I hate to have to admit this, but I completely forgot that the nanopi m4 v2 needs external antennas for its wifi to operate properly. (I bought just before the coronavirus hit, and it was several weeks before I got back to setting up the board. First board I've had that needs that.) Having terrible troubles getting a working wifi on various Armbian OSes on nanopi-m4v2. Tried: Armbian_20.05.1_Nanopim4v2_bionic_legacy_4.4.213_desktop.img Armbian_20.02.7_Nanopim4v2_buster_legacy_4.4.213_desktop.img (Armbian_20.05.2_Nanopim4v2_focal_current_5.4.43_de
  5. I cannot verify a gpg signature for your Focal image. It could be my error, of course. But for Buster, all works perfectly by the same methods. Something about the Focal download is different and undocumented, or something is just plain wrong. (Buster and Focal are zipped with different programs. What's up with that?) Yesterday, attempting to verify the Focal image from the main download by similar steps led to a runaway output (symbols, code) in terminal. That scared me. I shut down the virtual machine, then deleted it. Tried again today (below). All done i
  6. I can't post more than once per 24 hours, so its 1am and I am struggling to account for everything i did ~14h and (one restart) ago. Basically my terminal went nuts trying to verify a file, and I'm wondering if its corruption or malware. Downloaded the images for V2, as per /u/piter75's advice. Tried to `gpg --verify` with Focal. First, it was this: [user@d-nanopi-m4 Armbian_20.05.1_Nanopim4v2_focal_current_5.4.43_desktop]$ gpg --verify Focal_current_desktop.asc Armbian_20.05.1_Nanopim4v2_focal_current_5.4.43_desktop.img gpg: Signature made Sun May 31 06:59:23 20
  7. Hi guys, thanks for quick response. I had a forced 24h wait before I could post a reply. @martinayotte Thanks, but the space-bar trick simply Does Not Work. I notice orangepower had similar problems. @werner Tried two different SD cards (one brand new), a couple of different .img files (buster, bionic). Copied to the SD cards with dd and Fedora's built-in disc writer. Just not working. Update - SD cards now booting. Somehow. However, still stuck. 1. got a boot from Bionic on SD (Armbian_20.02.1_Nanopim4_bionic_legacy_4.4.213_desktop.img, shasum d
  8. Hi - trust this is the right forum. I have forgotten the login password to my Arbian installation on the nanopi m4 V2. It boots from the eMMC just fine, but I am stuck at the prompt. I had only just installed it a few weeks ago (then things got hectic), so nothing really invested - I could just install again via the SD card, right? Unfortunately, it looks like the SD slot is no longer working. In the last 2-3 days nothing seems to boot from it. Which leaves me with an eMMC module loaded up with an Armbian - I think its bionic, because it does hav
