  1. Banana Pi M1+ and BPi 7 inch LCD (S070WV20-CT16)

    Almost a year later but this info is still good. Simply copied the 5" lcd bin from the LeMaker link Igor gave above into /boot/bin and renamed the old one to .hold and the new one to bananapi.bin and 5" screen works great.
  2. pluseaudio-equalizer on XU4

    Is there anywhere I can find pulseaudio-equalizer or package with similar capabilities for Armbian on XU4? It appears to be out there for arm64 ...
  3. Sound equalizer on mpv. Orange pi One

    Did you ever get a solution for this? I made some bass reflex boxes for my odroid boom bonnet but I'd still like some equalization. Debian has package pulseaudio-equalizer but I have not found it yet for arm.
  4. That's exactly what I needed thanks.
  5. From Ilya Viten at Clearfog - "Hi Tracy, Thanks for the email, the 2GB version is available for a MOQ of 60pcs at least. By default we provide 1GB version. " 1GB will have to do for me ;] @tkaiserThe 960 EVO seems to have a good price / performance ratio, don't see any advantage to the PRO over the big price, is the EVO overkill for this application? You had specifically mentioned the 950 in an above post ... I looked at the SSD @Igor posted above but here in US that is almost as expensive. 256 is actually large enough I just want speed for this one. Again thanks, I've been pouring though all the suppliers looking for the components of this and I think, thanks to your help, I'm on my way.
  6. Me too thanks. I'll post when I receive the toys.
  7. Glad I asked! OK thanks that makes a big help. 'at the minimum' - The WLE600VX looks great. Just happened across the WLE900VX, 3xMIMO any sense messing with that? Have you found any NVMe M.2 drive smaller than 2280? Would a riser / extender such as this be a problem? This would allow one to mount a 2280 somewhere else in the cabinet. SolidRun states 'some click boards supported' - do you know if something like this board or this one would be supported to display basic info like IP, temp, # users ... ? Back in the day we used LCD4Linux, I'm sure there is a mechanism in Armbian for that? I have this 4 bay SAS/SATA cage. I assume this should be safe for adding and removing student drives on the fly? Thanks for tolerating all my questions, this is a significant project and I want to get the right stuff the first time. I appreciate the link from the other forum to the data above. Oh, and by the way while looking for SSDs I found this, not marvel but thought it was interesting if you wanted to add yet 3 more drives ;]
  8. I found the four port units thanks. Many questions :] Did either of you get yours with any of the options such as 2GB RAM or eMMC? I don't see any way of choosing the extra RAM or eMMC options on the Solid-Run webstore ... did you get yours through a distributor or ... ? In the Armbian Download notes for the Clearfog Pro it refers to the eMMC, confirm we are talking about the eMMC on the SOM unit? Solid-Run's sales data seems lacking, what is the port on the back and what adapter did you use there? Can I assume this port would support something like a USB3 adapter? I see there is a USB3 port, thought it was a slot for an adapter ... I assume then this port would be for a SSD or ... ? Armbian support something like this for wifi? Intel 3160 or AC 7260 And for USB3? Renesas NEC The renesas one looks easier to run power - but is it supported? Assuming you are running legacy? Anything I should have asked and didn't? ;] This board is looking like the perfect machine for our classroom server but I want to research well before diving in. Don't need Bluetooth but WiFi and USB3 would be incredibly useful.
  9. I guess I should have asked my question more thoroughly ;] The first photo in Mr. Kaisers Aug. 19 post - I assume clearfog pro - without enclosure but what are the sata boards and where do I get those? I was fairly sure RAID wan't the best idea on any ARM board but we have no need for that anyway, this is JBOD for convenience. I have a little 4 bay removable array that will be nice once I get a decent system running. Thanks for pointing out this board, it reduces several other pieces of hardware and introduces a nice way to package the whole thing. BTW, we always introduce our students to Armbian, because it behaves pretty much the same on any board so they have more in common right off the bat :]
  10. I'm not able to see clearly exactly which units you got and from where can I purchase one in the US? My application is a classroom where students have numerous boards, we keep images for various systems backed to SSD as well as run local repositories so students can have their systems up faster than over the internet, and share cool setups they've made. Various instructors keep their fav's on their own SSDs. We tried to make a system using PM cards and failed miserably ... this looks a viable solution. Hotswappable would be a plus but not necessary.
  11. Reinitiate SD Card resize on boot

    Worked perfect for me thanks.
  12. SD Card Burning problem

    Well, not entirely useless ... remember not everyone is at the depth of understanding that you have, and for many, Windows is their host OS. Testing is great, but formatting with SDFormatter for a Windows user makes the SD 'useful' again after having its partition table rewritten. Linux people are used to deleting partitions and resetting filesystems, Windows users know 'format,' especially kids. Once an Armbian image has been written to SD by Rufus and booted by the SBC, if put back into a Windows machine it appears to be 32 MB. A regular Windows 'Format' will not recover this. Using a tool such as SDFormatter will reset the media to report its native size to Windows and allow the SD card to be used for something else. Yes you do, but perhaps consider that others may not, or may be on the path to learning. I have read dozens of your posts and clearly you have a great deal of understanding of what is going on in the hardware and the software. You are obviously a great resource to this community. Please understand that some of us may not be purists and do indeed do other things in computing or perhaps use Windows as a host OS. Also Please try to understand that many of us are on a path to a specific end, or learning for the sake of doing so. Either way, it can be difficult to open up to learning when one is blasted in bold by one of the senior members of the site. I personally have spent hundreds of hours playing with Armbian on my ODroid XU4. I'm struggling to learn command line linux. I use windows, and have found it necessary to use SDFormatter in order to clense an SD of one image and write another. Rufus does pretty well, but always misidentifies the size of the card relative to the SD Association ap. Win32DiskImager wants the SD formatted. And again it is absolutely necessary if the SD is to be used for any other purpose once used for an image. Just had to spar my $.02, because I find SDFormatter a valualble tool on my desktop as a Windows user. Thanks though for reminding me about the getting started guide. F3 is an awesome tool and I have used it to find an actual faulty SD. maybe it was counterfiet, maybe faulty. But SDFormatter failed to format it and F3 revealed that the size didn't match the spec. BTW, NOOBS is how I found Armbian ...
  13. SD Card Burning problem

    Try SDFormatter for Windows ... I know, WIndows. (or Mac) But it comes from the SD Association and it has an option to resize the partition to its native capacity. Many of these SBC images once written to the SD make partitions that make the SD card look smaller to the OS. The SD Association says many OS file utilities don't do the SD card right. An argument for others, but I have found this formatter has brought back SD cards others couldn't - So *any* time I burn a new image using Rufus or Win32DiskImager or whatever, first I use SDFormatter and select the resize option. Never have any problems! I haven't found a way to format the protected area yet, but that doesn't affect your partition size anyway.
  14. XU4 Hangs at SSH key regeneration

    Every time I check entropy it is a 4 digit number, but sometimes is less than 4096, one time was 1200 something. I never even knew 'entropy' was part of the kernel. I thought it was space and time but that's another forum ;]
  15. XU4 Hangs at SSH key regeneration

    Each time I've run that it gives me a 4 digit number. Even when I broke out of adding a user Just now it gave me 4096.
