  1. as root in the virtual machine do-release-upgrade and a reboot fixed everything. Is this supported? It appears to have taken care of my issue here. It would make sense if repositories had changed. There were many failed downloads and 502 errors during the previous attempts. I started from scratch this morning and it posted a note to upgrade. So I did and wow it ran first time! I've got two builds successful now with the same config selections as were failing before. Sorry for the noise but it had me stumped.
  2. not the host but the virtual machine that I'm installing the build system on. Will have logs this evening.
  3. So I did a last try with no apt update or upgrade and it compiled. Why is the update / upgrade breaking things? I'm going to do some hours again building and determine if the update / upgrade really did cause the issue, but for sure this is the only thing I did differently this build ...
  4. It's rebuilding and compiling ... will do when it's done.
  5. I repurposed my old build system hardware and am trying to build a new one. Nice faster box ;] On this new linux host I create a virtualbox machine and install Hirsute from the link in the documentation. I do an apt update / upgrade. I install git and clone the build directory according to the documentation. Everything seems to go well until it gets through a lot of the .o files and gives [error] ERROR in function compile_kernel [ main.sh:574 -> main.sh:479 -> compilation..sh:506 -> general.sh:0 ] the line above is always the same, although it comes after different .o files for different boards. I've rebuilt the virtual machine several times and the error is consistent. I've selected several different boards. Wether I give root a password or use sudo same result. I've got this to work fine in the past and have compiled a lot of images. I just don't know what I'm doing wrong this time. Where should I look to try to figure out what I need to change?
  6. Hardkernel is putting out a cool power analyzer - can't wait to get my hands on one! https://www.hardkernel.com/shop/smartpower-iii/ This can show you power spikes and confirm if your SBC is drawing the power you expect.
  7. Back in the day we would take a Rubidium source like an SA.22c (can be found on ebay ~$100 - $150) and make a GPS Disciplined Oscillator. The rubidium was accurate for the short period (hours) and the GPS held it really accurate for long time (years). https://www.microsemi.com/document-portal/doc_view/136649-sa22c-user-guide-2017 can't find the project we used, but this one makes the point - https://hackerstuebchen.de/making-a-rubidium-gpsdo Sounds like fun!
  8. Are they Google or api related? Google stopped support for a lot of fetures on Chromium recently - https://www.debugpoint.com/2021/02/chromium-losing-private-api-support/
  9. Looks like its available from youyeetoo - https://youyeetoo.com/products/asus-tinker-board-2s-rockchip-rk3399-an-arm-based-single-board-computer-sbc-support-android-10-ubuntu-tinkerboard-2s-tinker2s-1 They have it on Amazon as well. PRICEY but it's there! Has anyone from Armbian got a sample of this? Is Armbian going there? I ordered on off Amazon, will be here in a couple weeks. Perhaps EU gets it faster? Perhaps there are other sellers, I could only find this one. Actually I found it by accident on Amazon and went looking. I'm sure I didn't do an exhaustive search.
  10. networking in Armbian is exactly as its counterpart (Debian / Ubuntu etc.) I didn't find any hardware issue for your card. Have you tried armbian-config? (sudo armbian-config) Do so and choose wired / wireless networking. It is similar to nmtui, you will see the connections available to you. Do you see the wired connection? Can you 'Activate' it?
  11. and you're absolutely positive it's not a power issue?
  12. Makes sense but I'm spoiled by armbian-config and *assumed* it would be there. Maybe a note on the download page that it really IS minimal lol Thanks!
  13. fresh download just now of minimal image. debconf is present. still no armbian-config until apt install armbian-config during install not found failed to fetch http://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/u/unzip/unzip_6.0-23+deb10u1_armhf.deb 404 not found couldn't get a wired or wireless connection to do armbianmonitor -u second time pretty much the same downloaded again and burned image debconf is present no armbian config nmtui to set network apt install armbian-config not found armbian-config install fails sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade N: InRelease changed version from 10.7 to 10.8 still no armbian-config apt install armbian-config works armbianmonitor -u states there is a network problem armbian-config runs and is able to forget and then activate again wifi can ping yahoo.com but armbianmonitor -u reports network error @Wernerplease educate me on how to properly test your fix. I am coming up fast but haven't done that yet... but I do have a build system running.
