    Lime2 does not reboot at each time

    Thanks for pointing me to the issue
  2. Hello, I'm using the last Kernel (4.13.3) and U-boot (2017-09). I noticed that the device does not reboot each time we ask for it. It sometime get stuck and I have to start it manually, this is really annoying for my needs. I figure it out that the Device Tree from 4.13.3 introduce some improvement on AXP209 and power management. I tried Device Tree file from 4.11.x and everything seems fine. Does any body noticed it ? Thanks
  3. Hey all, I'm using U-boot 2017-09 and Kernel 4.13. I'm looking for a way to disable the board auto start. I'm explaining. When you plug the power in, the board start by itself and U-boot does the rest. I would like to disable this feature in order to be able to plug in the power, charge the battery if needed and start the board with the regular push button. Is there any tweak to be done in the Device Tree ? Thanks Florian
  4. Thanks for the procedure. Change are quite heavy from 4.11 to 4.12 on Lime2. I wanted to give a try on an older kernel, but I think it does not worth spending time on this. I'd rather try to understand with my device tree fragment does not work any more on 4.13 I'll make a PR on the doc about KERNELBRANCH
  5. Ok I will. I have currently issue during patching from build/patch/kernel/sunxi-next/. Some patch can not be applied against Kernel version 4.11 / 4.12, 4.13 is fine but contains changes on device tree that I does not want. Does the last patch files from armbian works only along kernel 4.13 ?
  6. Hey, I'm trying to lock kernel version to 4.11. The documentation is talking about the variable ARMBIAN_MAINLINE_KERNEL_VERSION, which does not do anything, as the script does not take it into account and still clone the last version of kernel (4.13) I cheat and copy KERNELBRANCH='branch:linux-4.11.y' instead in userpatches/lib.config which seems to do the job. What is wrong then ? Documentation or me ? Thanks Florian

    DBus error within the chroot

    From what I have read, there is no way to use systemd in a chroot. This is quite annoying when it comes to build customization... chroot command could be swaped for systemd-nspawn in the Armbian build framework, does anybody tried this before ?
  8. Hello, I try to use DBus within the chroot and I got this issue : Failed to create bus connection The command used was : hostnamectl set-hostname device_name Systemd does not seems to work within the chroot, do you have any workaround ? Thanks, Florian
  9. Thanks for those advices. Marvell and Intel boards from ESPRESSObin, SolidRun or InHand sounds great, but unfortunately none of them provide an UPS. We can not afford to design a proper one around a SOM module or a carry board that would ingrate such component. @Igor do you know good UPS such as https://www.adafruit.com/products/2465 but with better battery and power management such as the one we can find on Olimex ? Furthermore I'm not sure that AdaFruit products are CE compliant. I never heard of the Atheros 9380. It is seems to be available only as PCIe @hojnikb did you try the Orange Pi Win plus ? it looks interesting. I don't know if all the components are compatible with linux legacy or mainline kernel. I have not seen any Armbian release for this board so far. As you said, using a bridge USB -> SATA can be an issue for data transfers. ITX board are by fare too power hungry
  10. Hello, I'm going to industrialize a project using currently the Olimex Lime2. This board is great and have exactly what I need, among others, battery charger and SATA capability. However I figured out that I can not use this board as there is no CE compliance and thus can not be sold as a product. I'm looking for the fellowing specifications : Run on battery for around 5-6 hours, so the board needs a battery charger Good computation >= 1Gz at least 2 cores Large RAM >= 2GB SATA connectivity: We need to load large amount of data, between 250Go and 1To, so a SSD driver connected to a SATA port is required Good wifi card and linux driver: The wifi hotspot created should at least handle 15 users connected simultaneously An Ethernet port to transfer the data If you have heard of any board having this feature, please share it So far is what I have found : CompuLab SBC-iAM but the technology is quite old Best Florian

    Thanks Chris, I mess your comment above. I'm trying to build a new image right now. Unfortunately I'm not using Lime2-eMMC version but only Lime2

    Hey all, I have been running 5 Lime2 during more than 48 hours, downloading and processing data. I set the DRAM just below 480 which is 456. So far I had no hang, no freeze, nothing wrong. This might be not the best value but at least I have a working board, which is a really good news. I'll try the DRAM value 504 as soon as I have a rev E in hand. Best Florian

    Thanks for the tip @chradev Do you know if there is anyway to check the DRAM frequency once the system is started in order to be sure of value ?

    Hey, I'm not able to reproduce the hang on the board. I think I mess something. I'm currently compiling with KERNEL_ONLY="yes", so I got this in my output dir : -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1081558 août 2 12:47 armbian-firmware_5.17_armhf.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1572820 août 2 13:00 armbian-hostapd-jessie_5.17_armhf.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 66218 août 2 13:01 armbian-tools-jessie_5.17_armhf.deb drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 août 2 12:24 extra/ drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 août 8 10:45 jessie/ -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 68742 août 8 10:44 linux-dtb-next-sunxi_5.17_armhf.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 58596 août 8 10:44 linux-firmware-image-next-sunxi_5.17_armhf.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7055090 août 8 10:44 linux-headers-next-sunxi_5.17_armhf.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 15140844 août 8 10:45 linux-image-next-sunxi_5.17_armhf.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 177898 août 8 10:40 linux-u-boot-next-lime2_5.17_armhf.deb I'm only copying and installing linux-u-boot-next-lime2_5.17_armhf.deb on my board in order to test the DRAM frequency. After rebooting the board I'm lunching the test. I guess this should be enough to modify U-boot, unfortunately the board (DRAM 480) does not hang... Should I install other *.deb ? Thanks
