  1. If these two things were added I would definitely get another one would be: - a transceiver / SFP+ port with onboard wiring supporting 10gbe and/or 25gbe. (10gbe ports are too big / expensive / hot for them to work cheaply on a board like this.) - A dedicated lane for the m2 SSD, or replace it with a dedicated 4x nvme slot. The machine works just fine as is otherwise, especially with the new 2.5gbe fixes. (It bodes well for the remainder of the unfixed issued. :)) (Having two would mean I could mirror the enclosure to an offsite location, though that's be pric
  2. Alrighty, thank you. I've been meaning to learn Ansible, so I'll give that a shot.
  3. My plan is as follows: - Insert SD card. - Make a clone / back-up of boot and system using armbian-config whenever I'm about to do something major. (boot and system are both on eMMC) - "unclick" SD card and leave it in the back. - (repeat, until something breaks, and then just insert it and restore using armbian-config if something goes wrong.) I am confused by the eMMC to SD card path though. Here's some context: ❯ lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT loop0 7:0 0 86.6M 1 loop /snap/core/10578 loop1 7:1
  4. fwiw I've stopped using the 2.5gbe interface until this disconnection issue is resolved.

  6. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y This will upgrade your unit. I rebooted after doing this, but I'm not sure that you need to.
  7. sudo insmod /lib/modules/5.9.11-rockchip64/kernel/drivers/leds/trigger/ledtrig-netdev.ko sudo systemctl restart helios64-heartbeat-led.service

  9. JohnnyMnemonic you can either wait 24 hours now that you have a like, or you can join the irc channel and ask to be activated.
  10. This is the machine in the broken state. (Requiring reboot)
  11. I see! Yes, modifying settings on the windows machine has improved both. However, I am still seeing consistent lock-up / crashing of the interface. Is there anything I can grab for you for details?

  13. Have you tried checking your router's dhcp for a lease on the helios64? If you have the ethernet plugged in when starting it up, and it makes it through sdcard boot, regardless of your serial console it should get a lease. (Then you can SSH in with the same credentials.) I also had no console output when I first tried to set it up, and ended up using the router to discover what the IP was. Make sure you are using the correct COM address. I had to install the driver, and I was on COM4.

  15. Yay 24 hour delay is over. This is regarding the degraded performance of the 2.5gbe on 5.8. I am unsure if my iperf results are aligning with what others are seeing. Given that tx offload is definitely off, I assume so. Formulated context and question: I have just put my helios64 together. I am seeing degraded performance of the 2.5gbe interface as warned. The notes I saw everywhere were "disable tx checksum offload". How do I check if tx offloading is on or off? I tested with ethtool, and yes it is off. ❯ sudo ethtool -k eth1 | grep tx-checksum tx
