    pfeerick reacted to poVoq in Armbian running on Pine64 (and other A64/H5 devices)   
    There is a regression in recent versions preventing the Pine64 Sopine modules to run on the Clusterboard.
     
    It always required a network fix for getting the dhcp requests to come though, but since recent versions (newer than Armbian 20.11.3) this fix stopped working.
     
    Further details here: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=13866

    Any idea where did this non-removable change come from? I checked the DTS file https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/packages/blobs/sunxi/a64/pine64so.dts#L2117 but the non-removable flag is still there in sdmmc@01c0f000 section. But then some changes in DTS files are introduced by kernel patches apparently. The only patch that removes the flag is this one https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/0cdffb29b07305209efb12cf3b5ac6032d3a1153/patch/kernel/archive/sunxi-5.4/patch-5.4.46-47.patch#L44 from 24 March but the Armbian runs Linux 5.10.21-sunxi64 so I can't see how it's even relevant... I would like to create a PR to fix this but I'm a bit confused here.

    @SecT0uchIf you are able to mount the image on another system then you could make the update in place
     
    Something along the lines of (adjust paths to suit your setup)
    mkdir /tmp/image mount -v -o offset=4194304 -t ext4 /Path/To/Armbian_21.02.3_Pine64so_focal_current_5.10.21.img /tmp/image dtc -O dtb -o /tmp/image/boot/allwinner/dtb/sun50i-a64-sopine-baseboard.dtb -b 0 sun50i-a64-sopine-baseboard.dts umount /tmp/image  
    Then write the image as usual
     
    You can mount this from another Linux system. from WSL2 or whatever, as long as you have the dtc command avaialble.

    Dude, see the suggestions by @dippywood the latest version is 21.02.1
    The broken package can be held back with
    echo "linux-dtb-current-sunbix64 hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections

    In my stupidity when renaming my temporary files I used the wrong extension - the file previously attached is the DTS.
     
    So, here it is, with the proper extension.

    So, here's the problem, and its resolution:
     
    Comparing the decompiled DTBs for the SOPine for 21.02.1 and 21.02.3, diff gives me 
    565d564 < non-removable; 600c599 < max-frequency = <0xbebc200>; --- > max-frequency = <0x8f0d180>; 681a681,682 > phys = <0x2d 0x00>; > phy-names = "usb"; 691a693,694 > phys = <0x2d 0x00>; > phy-names = "usb";  
    Working through these show that only the first of these seems to make a difference. The definition for mmc@1c0f000 no longer contained the 'non-removable' entry. 
     
    Therefore, inserting "non-removable;" at line 565 of sun50i-a64-sopine-baseboard.dts and compiling to /boot/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-a64-sopine-baseboard.dtb resolves this issue.
     
    I can supply a patched focal image if requested.

    Any chance you can share the patched version of the dts.  Will make it easier to add it back into armbian build

    pfeerick reacted to Igor in Help Test Upcoming Armbian v20.08 (Caple)!   
    I wasn't updating index file until all files are present on all mirrors. Now I pushed index update which will take up to 24-48h (not sure since we are doing 1st time) to update all mirrors. If we would update all at once, people will be receiving errors - file not found - all the time ... updating index from server one, then redirector points to another mirror - where files are not yet - error. Now files are everywhere, but index is somewhere still old.
     
    Anyway, things are in automated motion now.

    Hello Igor,
    since years i seed Armbian torrents but i noticed that i'm running out of space.
    My hdd was 248GB till now...
     
    Looking for further information and saw in the first post is written 512GB.
    Maybe you can add a big ">NOTE!< since Version 20.05.xx you need 512GB free space".
     
    Also after you installed transmission by ->Software ->Softy ->Transmission you get asked to seed Armbian torrents.
    Here a screen:
     

     
    You have to change the number from 80GB to 512GB.
     
    Just my thinking about this..

    Serial and power mux board is ready for ordering. However before I do so, I need to wait till SD card mux board redesign is complete at least overall idea is “approved”.
     
    As previously written the major change is to switch from simple SDI interface towards SDIO one allowing full speed communication with card. This requires 8 pins thus not only mux board but also card adapter tuning. 
    Recently idea under consideration is to move SD mux board away from stacking and make it more alike USB Mass Storage device.

    One test board from this topic will be installed at this location and another at my desk and elsewhere. We will try to join them.

    After test boards come, some more coding has to be done. Also to have better overview over the test process. Currenlty test results looks like this: https://dl.armbian.com/_test-reports/2020-05-03_15.57.22.html Its still more or less a data collection without any proper analysis ...

    armbian-firmware = minimal blobs that are needed that on-board wireless function + few popular ones = https://github.com/armbian/firmware 
    - full = + everything else https://kernel.googlesource.com/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git
     
    You can install one of those, while source package, headers and armbian-config are optional. Also armbian-firmware if your will not be running any wireless.

    Kernel = image + dtb package. Those are the core.
