  1. So I have have some major happenings this week such as my home has had partial power for the last several days. Doesnt look like it will get better for a while yet! But decided to play around with this last night despite the power! ok, I had downloaded Armbian several months ago and installed it (Working) several times, gone through the update/upgrade process, installed rpimonitor and tightvncserver. but last night I did all of this and none of these worked, well, the update/upgrade worked but I am not able to log in via vnc and I am not able to reach the rpi monitor page. I am thinking the latest upgrades have changed some things as I have noticed others having issues mentioned in the forum as well. Is there something I am missing. Or do I need to put this on hold till these bugs get worked out?

  2. Looking at prerequisites, "linux-headers-`uname -r`" will definitely cause an installation error, so you need to remove this package from the list. Other than that, please provide exact steps that you tried and exact error messages that you got, since your task is very specific and it is highly unlikely that someone here can provide a solution to a problem without describing the problem itself.

    Great, That's a good start, I will try this later this evening and post the results after. Thanks. I remember this now as being one of the problems!


    This seems very similar to the article that Igor had pointed me to, for some reason I could not install the prereqs. Just to give a better understanding, I have an OPiPC+ using the latest Armbian. It was a few months ago, but I believe I installed Armbian Server for this. I do not know if that is debian or Ubuntu, I believe it is debian, but i dont think it is 8.1 which is where i beleive the problem may be. 


    I understand my level of knowledge seems like I am biting of much more than I should, but I am determined, and if I can find some good information to help me understand than I CAN get this figured out. I just need some help to get me started in the right direction and hints along the way.

    Our desktop is already lightweight as possible. There are only few applications, which you might not need: 

    libreoffice-writer thunderbird icedove

    Uninstall them if you thing it's urgent to do so.


    I never built Asterix but since Armbian desktop is Debian based, I would check guides like this:






    Haha, it was you who gave me the article. it seems i cant access it anymore (BEWARE, accessing it now may bring a virus warning page) but in following the steps, I only got a few steps in. basically to the prereqs. I could not get past them as I could not install them all. I am thinking the page was outdated and may not have the best install options now.

  5. Hey, I am very noob to the whole linux experience. How do you install a remote desktop server to my OrangePi PC+ using Armbian.


    Also, is there a simple website for ppl like me to learn how to work with Armbian. I will say I have used Ubuntu and can get around a lot better because of the simplified GUI that makes the experience more like MS Windows.





    Edit: Nevermind to the first Q, I found it. But could someone give me some info for the second Q?



  6. Please give me your recommendation for my OPiPC+ to use Armbian and Asterisk


    I see there are 3 options for Armbian for my model. I am not good with linux and would prefer a GUI for both Armbian and Asterisk. Also I am wanting as "Lightweight" as possible. I will not be using the OPi for anything else but a phone system.


    Also could you give me steps to take to add Asterisk to Armbian.
