    Armbian usable on RK TV-Boxes?

    I see the technical advantage of Nagrace NT-N9 RK3328 but this shop looks a bit weird, I just tried to add a piece to the cart do a checkout insecure connection warning and $ 66.- for an RK3328 quite pricy, whereas this one US $35.88.- free shipping : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/RK3228-Quad-Core-64-bit-Android-7-1-V88-Mini-III-Smart-TV-Box-2GB-8GB/32824329902.html?
  2. Well this usually leads to our standard question: have you tried to turn it off and on again :-) just kidding. seriously, did you follow these steps ? And when you have done so and the Orange Pi Zero Plus 2 H5 is running, do: armbianmonitor -u

    Powering through micro USB

    Hi @TonyMac32, thank you very much for this testing, it is a switching PowerSupply. In the US you run that at 115V 60Hz? I wonder whether ASUS has done their testing on the full voltage range or for example only with 230V 50Hz.

    This is a Linux problem https://www.google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=The+following+packages+have+unmet+dependencies&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8
  6. USB-C connector might be a solution IF the charger and the board support power-negotiation - otherwise not !! Therefore, I prefer DC Barrel Power Jack/Connector - it just works. No discrete electronic necessary. It sounds like Frank is part of the ASUS team. No matter how thick your cable is, the connector is designed for 1,8A (Micro USB) and a certain amount of cycle's (plug unplug) – as a technician you should make your point towards the Designer/Marketing how to offer at least an easy option to improve power situation for "tinkerer's". This could be in such a way if you consider the possibilty for the customer to replace it with a DC Barrel Power Jack/Connector as it has been done here: I like the Tinker board a lot, smart things like colored pins and pictorgram on the PCB – ASUS put a lot of smart ideas into that board, but missed the simple option described above. Is there an engineering point of view, why such an option has not been considered ?
  7. @sgjava as mentioned by helfis, the link in the first post is dead. Can you add a comment there or point it to the right URL?

    BPI M2 how gpio programming

    Hi @martinayotte, Just out of curiosity, why did you suggest an old LeMaker project and not something closer to armbian like: Build libgpiod the "New GPIO Interface for User Space" https://forum.armbian.com/topic/6249-build-libgpiod-the-new-gpio-interface-for-user-space/ User Space IO is Python 3 and Java 8 bindings for user space GPIO, SPI, I2C, PWM and Serial interfaces https://forum.armbian.com/topic/6523-user-space-io-is-python-3-and-java-8-bindings-for-user-space-gpio-spi-i2c-pwm-and-serial-interfaces/ pyGPIO - A 'more general' python GPIO library based on pyA20 https://forum.armbian.com/topic/5662-pygpio-a-more-general-python-gpio-library/
  9. Hi xxavi, If you like to learn more about the way swap is implemented in Armbian you can read these two threads: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/5565-zram-vs-swap/ https://forum.armbian.com/topic/7503-we-need-your-help/ You will see that a lot of testing and ideas are part of that implemention - I hope it fits your need too. Cheers Tido

    how nand-sata-install works

    as you didn't mention it, did you read that: https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Getting-Started/#how-to-install-to-emmc-nand-sata-usb

    Le Potato Wake/Power ON by IR Remote

    I found something on the internet that I add here for the collection.. once someone get to it a kernel setting implements ‘shutdown’ as a special reboot variant setting an u-boot flag. When you power down your device it reboots into u-boot, turns off almost everything and only the OpenRISC core inside the SoC remains active with minimal power consumption if your power supply is efficient. Then you define wakeup sources (power button, IR, even BT or Wi-Fi are possible but this is all device dependent and you have to define the stuff correctly in the so called sys_config.fex) and as soon as such a wakeup event is triggered (press the power button on your IR remote) the OpenRISC core wakes the ARM cores and Android or Linux boot normally.

    rk3288 or rk3328 which is fastest?

    Now and then I use them as source and actually like them. Can you elaborate what makes them smelly ?

    rk3288 or rk3328 which is fastest?

    You made me curious so I searched a bit and found this interesting information... if it is true: It integrates four Cortex-A12 cores clocked at up to 1.8 GHz. ARM calls these cores Cortex-A17 due to them having very similar performance levels. https://www.notebookcheck.net/Rockchip-RK3288-SoC-Benchmarks-and-Specs.148374.0.html
  14. This is correct, but also with ADSL updating the Laptop I get the maximum from the provider for example 10Mbits == 1,2Megabyte/s Do we have such an offical list ?
