  1. I've posted in the Armbian forums in the past about Kerberos.io video surveillance software. For some reasons it was (at the time) not always that easy or impossible to compile or get it up and running. But: Times have changed (for the good this time!) and I've tried it again on a H3 1GB memory OrangePi plus with kernel 5.4 using a *FRESH and CLEAN* Ubuntu Bionic Server image. I was able to get the Kerberos software 2.8.0 up and running straight away, just by *EXACT* following the instructions on the website of Kerberos.io (Generic installation Instructions page). It takes some time to compile ffmpeg and the machinery module, but it is certainly worth the effort! Go grab a drink, or do something else that's useful. Performance is ok, even though I think the hardware acceleration is not working. Just lower the FPS and/or resolution a bit. Performance is still great for everyday video surveillance with this excellent piece of software. I've tested successfully two different Logitech USB cams and two el-cheapo Chinese IP cameras using the RTSP stream. Other information can also be found on the Kerberos.io website to get the software up and running. Please take care of defining exact camera type and resolution!
  2. Hi There! I noticed the EOS for the OrangePi+ and that the OrangePi+ 2 is still supported. Since boards are almost identical, why leave the OrangePi+? And on top of that: when I download the current version, the downloads are the same for both boards.... Or am I missing something?
  3. Ehh... maybe you can reduce the amount of bull-poo if you tell where to find it?
  4. Quote from the Free electrons: and they should work on all Allwinner SoCs using the Mali GPU. Furthermore from the Mr. Torvalds device tree bindings: - compatible * Must be one of the following: + "arm,mali-300" + "arm,mali-400" + "arm,mali-450" * And, optionally, one of the vendor specific compatible: + allwinner, sun4i-a10-mali + allwinner,sun7i-a20-mali + allwinner, sun50i-h5-mali + amlogic, meson-gxbb-mali + amlogic,meson-gxl-mali + stericsson, db8500-mali So not that bad isn't it? Also the H5 is mentioned... Or am I missing something?
  5. For what it's worth, and one of the most discussed topics can now hopefully finally closed: Mali in mainline Did not try it, but the source is trustworthy to my humble knowledge... Still no open source release, but I guess it silences a lot of people questioning for Mali support! For the real Mali die hards, here is a link to some more background info: Free Electrons
  6. I have got the sneakin' suspicion that it is ready when it's done, and done when it's ready.
  7. Don't know if I am asking something stupid but: on aliexpress the OrangePi Win Plus page (link) reports that it is eMMC compatible. I've googled my *ss off, but I can't find if it is possible to mount / install emmc memory myself... Anybody familiar with this?
  8. I cannot complain about the price: I've received a free sample. If there's anything I can do (e.g. compile images) I am happy to help. I do have some basic knowledge, but that's it. Maybe I should not complain because I got it for free, but on the other hand it works still fine for me.
  9. Mmmm... I guess I am one of the happy S500 (Roseapple Pi) Armbian users? It works fine for my purpose(s) like file sharing, torrent, Nextcloud, small Minecraft server. Isn't it possible to freeze the current situation? I realize mainline is far off, but on the other hand: I am not missing it and Armbian works fine on the board. I've never had any issue with a default or self compiled image. Apart from the micro-usb power and substandard USB3 transfer rates I cannot see what's wrong with it: IMHO it's not more or less crappy than some other boards that I own.... There are not many S500 boards on this planet, but I am sure there are some users like me who are happy with it. So a status quo for the next period (year or so?) is fine. Then it's becoming time to upgrade to a faster board anyway.
  10. Just wondering: what drives the 'Security update on all kernels' day counter on the main page of armbian.com? I noticed that it sometimes it increases as well...
  11. Thanks for your replies. It clears the cloudy sky. @tkaiser: is raw CPU performance of the H5 comparable to the SOC's in the Tinker and ODROID XU-4? Basically I need processing power and a fast port (Ethernet or USB) to the outside world. As you mention: I also do not need fancy graphics.
  12. I am considering to buy a new board for personal cloud / webserver / NAS / torrent / DLNA etc. I can hear you thinking: yes and? So what? I narrowed my options down to an Odroid-XU4 or Tinker Board. Note that for the NAS functionality I already own a Gbit NAS enclosure. What would you buy and why? You have to choose!
  13. Uhhh... not very Armbian friendly, but it is only 2 words long: use android.
  14. Mwah... gets weirder all the time. Don't know if it contributes anything.... My Roseapple Pi running the latest armbian jessie spits this out when I give a "lsusb -t": I am using a USB3 sandisk 32GB flash drive. root@roseapple:~# lsusb -t /: Bus 02.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci-hcd/1p, 5000M |__ Port 1: Dev 2, If 0, Class=Mass Storage, Driver=usb-storage, 5000M /: Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci-hcd/1p, 480M root@roseapple:~# So it seems that it is recognized as a USB3 port. When starting the gnome-disks benchmark on my drive it quits unexpectedly after starting,initial speeds seem to be around USB2: refer to the screenshot..
  15. I know the PHP5 branch is EOL. First objective was to get it running at all. Initially it did not run at all on Armbian due to the fact that the software assumed it was running on a Raspberry Pi. I guess PHP7 will be the next challenge. Will ask the owner of Kerberos.io.... And of course do some fiddling myself...
