  1. Alright, anyone reading this, don't do it. JUST DON'T. do. It. Don't! Not worth the effort, even to try not to wear an SD card. This have me the opportunity to confirm that the pi zero is a good contender for a portable squeezebox server with hostapd and all, but now I have to scrap and rebuild because this method resulted in a mess of simlink and dependencies. Bottom line is reformat and start from scratch; it will take much less effort overall than trying to salvage what cannot be!
  2. Well, reporting after playing with it for some time. I think this could work when jumping from platform to platform as long as it's on the same version of Armbian. Doing this in my case resulted in missing quite a bit of the update scripts for that platform and a few things were not properly configured. So as an additional step, and to avoid the wear of copying 100gb+ of data back from a full re-install, I ended up mounting the sd card and the latest armbian image on a linux machine and copied from ./ recursively to the sd card. I think this will still not be perfect ** some symlinks were
  3. I am trying to setup a logitech squeezebox server on an Orange Pi Zero so that it can be carried around and serve my collection from a large micro-sd card. This is the 3rd iteration of this already (first was given as a gift, 2nd got fried by 12V, and now this one) and in the past I've been using hostapd to connect while away from home. I'd like to explore the possibility of using a Bluetooth Personal Area network, but I am not sure if there is a stack that can achieve this for me. The idea is that I would use bluetooth instead of wifi to connect to the orange pi zero and establi
  4. @tkaiser I think I made progress here! The little guy seems to be wanting to boot now (woot!). I'm going to try and explore. So far, 2 services failed to start: - Login Service - DHCP Server (this is to be expected, as it was bound to a subnet/network card that isnt there yet) **Edit : the little guy is definitely booting up now, so I'm considering this as resolved!
  5. Posting more progress here in case someone ends up needing the same as myself. I have decided to replace boot and kernel from my SD card using the content of a proper Orange Pi Zero image and it goes like this Download the image of choice Mount the image on a linux machine Mount the SD card on a Linux machine Rename /boot on the original SD card to /boot.bak (just to be safe) Copy the /boot content from the recent image to /boot of the sd card Copy the content of /usr/src from the recent image to /usr/src of the sd card Open file /boot/armbianEnv.txt
  6. Ran e2fsck, and it looks like this something was fixed. # e2fsck -fD /dev/sdd1 e2fsck 1.42.12 (29-Aug-2014) Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes Pass 2: Checking directory structure Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity Pass 3A: Optimizing directories Pass 4: Checking reference counts Pass 5: Checking group summary information /dev/sdd1: ***** FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED ***** /dev/sdd1: 193845/7654080 files (0.8% non-contiguous), 26018525/30719744 blocks rebooted and got the same kernel panic
  7. I definitely have another linux box from which I can manipulate images. The sole reason why I am trying to keep that one is that it's my only 128gb sd card and it's 90% full from my compressed music library. Reformatting and re-copying that much data will no doubt introduce wear on that card, which I am trying to avoid. If I were to grab "stuff" from existing images and overwrite what's on the 128gb card, what would it be? Kernel? boot folder? I might just bite the bullet and start from scratch, but it would be best if I could avoid that.
  8. This was after trying to follow the troubleshooting guide. What I have done instead is changing the verbosity level and redirecting the output from the boot to the console. Booting ends with a kernel panic message Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00000000 Note that the environment is setup like this bootargs = console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty1 root= rootwait rootfstype=ext4 cgroup_enable=memory swapaccount=1 sunxi_ve_mem_reserve=0 sunxi_g2d_mem_reserve=0 sunxi_fb_mem_reserve=16 disp.screen0_output_mode=1920x1080p60
  9. I guess I'll have to mount the sd card on a linux machine and fix the boot section, but I'll need some guidance from someone better qualified than myself as I am not sure where to get the content from I have tried the troubleshooting steps documented for Armbian with no luck. Here is the output from the serial console: U-Boot SPL 2017.01-armbian (Feb 02 2017 - 03:02:37) DRAM: 512 MiB Failed to set core voltage!

  10. I have to report that I am getting the same after doing apt-get upgrade The SD card was reused from a OpiPC that got fried by 12V supply. It was working good until I did the update.
  11. @tkaiser, here is the result of the armbian monitor: ** Edit: I think I need to reboot before posting this... sorry. Reboting now and will re-execute armbianmonitor ** Edit 2: The little guy is no longer booting. Below is the output from serial. Will try to troubleshoot now.
  12. @jhpadjustable That would explain it! @tkaiser, the logs were uploaded to : ** edit - just noticed that apt-get upgrade had not completed before I uploaded the logs. I had to run apt-get -f install and let it complete to fix some issues. Upgrade is running now and I will report again once it's done. I'll be testing more today; my end goal is to set this little guy as a portable Squeezebox player with the following - hostapd (unlikely that the builtin hardware supports it, so I have some known-to-be-working-chipset wifi dongles ava
  13. @tkaiser, thanks for the quick reply. I have hooked up power on from a 3A 5V adapter to the single row connector pins on pin 1+2, hooked up a USB/Serial dongle to the TX/RX/GND pins and connected the board with the old sd card in place.

  14. A few months ago I dried one of my OPiPC with a 12V power supply and I have not had a chance to try and revive it. So I am looking to migrate the existing 128GB sd card to a OPi Zero. From what I understand, the following would need to be done Mount the SD card (ideally on a linux BOX or VM) Replace script.bin with a suitable file Sync Eject Enjoy Can anyone confirm? Do I need to swap the kernel as well, or is it ok to keep the existing one? As for the script.bin, what's the best way to get one? Download an image and mount it, us
