  1. Indeed after a fresh checkout things got better and now I can build ok the supported items in build system. The problem is that jessie build bails out with error, though as @Igor said, the 3.4.113 can still be compiled with xenial and the 19.08 branch (for as long as it does..) A minor but time consuming task is that whenever we have to make a new fresh checkout, it takes so many hours to re-download all the cached components specifically the toolchains and thats a real bummer. Thanks for your hints.
  2. It was from a checkout a few months back, in June, though from what I know and see, the build script perform any update required. Will do tomorrow a full clean new checkout and report back.
  3. Thank you @count-doku , @Igor It seems though that the problem here might be more than just jessie or 3.4.113. Please have a look at the logs posted above and on those following My Armbian build host is Ubuntu Bionic 18.04 (x64) Tried a few builds with the mainline kernel, Strech and Ubuntu, all of them gave error Armbian build for (AllWinner H3) OPiPC, Mainline kernel, Debian 9 Strech, Server/console, full os image Setting up libsasl2-modules-db:armhf (2.1.27~101-g0780600+dfsg-3+deb9u1) ...

What happenned to those apps and their repo? E: Unable to locate package armbian-firmware E: Unable to locate package mmc-utils Anyway, as it is right now, it seems that I cannot build anything related to H3, legacy kernel or mainline, no H3 build succeeds. Did not test though any other CPU.. I do not know if I am missing something, I hope you can find a solution.
  4. Hi @Igor Thanks for answering. The platform I use is OPiPC and I do indeed need the 3.4.113. Tried every possible combination, (with BUILD_TAG or without, server or desktop etc) of either debian or ubuntu with the default/legacy 3.4.113. It looks that all of them during build do stop with the exact same message Reading state information... E: Unable to locate package armbian-firmware E: Unable to locate package mmc-utils [ error ] ERROR in function create_rootfs_cache [ debootstrap.sh:229 ] [ error ] Installation of Armbian packages failed [ o.k. ] Process terminated [ error ] ERROR in function unmount_on_exit [ image-helpers.sh:62 ] [ error ] debootstrap-ng was interrupted [ o.k. ] Process terminated Obviously that is something different than phasing out jessie. If I understand it correctly, Armbian can no longer be build with the default/legacy sunxi kernel for OrangePi H3 in any way ? so Armbian has abandoned the 3.4.113 ? Is that correct ?
  5. Hi @guidol @Igor It has been a while since I did a build and did not notice this change. My environment relies on jessie thus I compile with this. sudo ./compile.sh SET_EXPERT=yes RELEASE=jessie When tried a build got these errors during compile Err http://httpredir.debian.org jessie-backports/main armhf Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] Err http://httpredir.debian.org jessie-backports/contrib armhf Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] Err http://apt.armbian.com jessie/main armhf Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] Err http://httpredir.debian.org jessie-backports/non-free armhf Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] Err http://apt.armbian.com jessie/jessie-utils armhf Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] Err http://apt.armbian.com jessie/jessie-desktop armhf Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] Fetched 10.1 MB in 8s (1187 kB/s) W: Failed to fetch http://apt.armbian.com/dists/jessie/main/binary-armhf/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] W: Failed to fetch http://apt.armbian.com/dists/jessie/jessie-utils/binary-armhf/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] W: Failed to fetch http://apt.armbian.com/dists/jessie/jessie-desktop/binary-armhf/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] W: Failed to fetch http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/dists/jessie-backports/main/binary-armhf/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] W: Failed to fetch http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/dists/jessie-backports/contrib/binary-armhf/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] W: Failed to fetch http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/dists/jessie-backports/non-free/binary-armhf/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: ::1 3142] E: Some index files failed to download.

Is there a way to reference the archived jessie when performing a build ? It seems that the build scripts use the previous place of jessie. Can someone change the build scripts and when they refer to jessie to automatically point/refer to the new place you puted them ? regards, Christos PS My build is OrangePiPC default/legacy 3.4.113, jessie, console/server.
  6. Ok @Igor I understand that it might be time to get a bit modern, though things that I need are STILL not working with mainline/next/dev.. (and I do not know if they ..ever.. gonna work properly). Thanks anyway.
  7. @Igor Unfortunately, it produced an error, new build, legacy, Xenial desktop/console [ warn ] * [l][c] remove-boot-messages-from-hdmi.patch [ failed ] Are you sure it works or am I missing something?
  8. Hi, Tried a new Armbian build for OPiPC today, legacy (3.4.113) and seen that only Debian 9 is available (not showing Debian 8), so build fails since Debian 9 cannot work with legacy. So, is Armbian dropping legacy kernels (3.4.113) on Debian? Need Debian 8 console/server with legacy, so what can I do ? [ error ] ERROR in function source [ configuration.sh:90 ] [ error ] Building Debian Stretch images with selected kernel is not supported [ o.k. ] Process terminated
  9. Thanks @Igor I guess that stops the running boot text. Is there a way to show instead a splash image on HDMI screen during uboot ?
  10. Hi, Can someone help me on how we can set a uBoot splash screen (with a .bmp) instead of the running boot text? Need this in a OPiPC, legacy (3.4.113). Any help is welcome. Christos
  11. Ok, thanks @Igor Are there any recommended dongles for legacy 3.4.113 ? Any that tested/work ok?
  12. Thanks @WarHawk_AVG Unfortunately could not setup a hotspot in OPiPC using the armbian-config. Tried to use various usb/wifi dongles and with none that I used got any results. Also, I bought one of the specified in the download page as supported, the Comfast with RTL8811AU chipset. OPiPC runnning latest 5.51 Debian (8) legacy kernel 3.4.113 simply does not even recognizes it for use as client. Not creating the wlan0 device at all. ___ ____ _ ____ ____ / _ \ _ __ __ _ _ __ __ _ ___ | _ \(_) | _ \ / ___| _ | | | | '__/ _` | '_ \ / _` |/ _ \ | |_) | | | |_) | | _| |_ | |_| | | | (_| | | | | (_| | __/ | __/| | | __/| |___ |_ _| \___/|_| \__,_|_| |_|\__, |\___| |_| |_| |_| \____| |_| |___/ Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.51 user-built Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 3.4.113-rt143-sun8i System load: 0.00 0.03 0.05 Up time: 22 min Memory usage: 16 % of 997MB IP: 192.168.1.70 CPU temp: 51°C Usage of /: 11% of 15G dmesg [ 826.660215] ehci_irq: highspeed device connect [ 826.910179] usb 4-1: new high-speed USB device number 5 using sunxi-ehci [ 827.062370] usb 4-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0bda, idProduct=a811 [ 827.062406] usb 4-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 827.062437] usb 4-1: Product: 802.11ac WLAN Adapter [ 827.062460] usb 4-1: Manufacturer: Realtek [ 827.062483] usb 4-1: SerialNumber: 00e04c000001 root@orangepipcplus:~# ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr e2:bd:ab:0f:e9:b7 inet addr:192.168.1.70 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: 2a02:582:d0e:e00:e0bd:abff:fe0f:e9b7/64 Scope:Global inet6 addr: fe80::e0bd:abff:fe0f:e9b7/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:567 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:855 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:45453 (44.3 KiB) TX bytes:138041 (134.8 KiB) Interrupt:114 lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) root@orangepipcplus:~# @Igor @zador.blood.stained So, am I missing something?

  13. Hi, Got Debian (8) legacy 3.4.113 server/console and would like to setup a WiFi hotspot. (latest Armbian build 5.51) Seen two methods in Armbian docs 1. -> https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Advanced-Features/#how-to-set-wireless-access-point and via armbian_config in https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Armbian-Config/ 2. -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__BJtInOQFY So I'm a bit buffled about it. Got some questions Got a RTL8188CUS is it suported nowadays? or should I get a specific other one? Do I need to have internet/ethernet/lan connection active during the hotspot creation via armbian_config? After I execute the armbian config method, there are a few screens as in the video, probing various methods, and then the system without reporting any error returns to its menu selection but do not show the "Manage..access point". After that what do I need to do have the WiFi hotspot up? How can I give it the required parameters eg ip, passphrase key for users to connect, SSID etc, is there any guide for it ? PS. Also tried with a OPiPCPlus that has onboard wlan and armbian config result is the same, did not give the "Manage .. access point" menu after run. It also not support WiFi access point creation?
  14. @Igor @guidol Ooops, in the latest 5.51 it looks we cannot remove only unattended-upgrades, if doing so we also lose the most useful armbian-config amongst others (armbian-config python3-software-properties software-properties-common) So, we cannot remove only unattended-upgrades? If so, if we set to "0" all options in 02-armbian-periodic, is it the same and no unattended upgrade will ever happen? ___ ____ _ ____ ____ / _ \ _ __ __ _ _ __ __ _ ___ | _ \(_) | _ \ / ___| | | | | '__/ _` | '_ \ / _` |/ _ \ | |_) | | | |_) | | | |_| | | | (_| | | | | (_| | __/ | __/| | | __/| |___ \___/|_| \__,_|_| |_|\__, |\___| |_| |_| |_| \____| |___/ Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.51 user-built Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 3.4.113-rt143-sun8i System load: 0.67 0.18 0.06 Up time: 0 min Memory usage: 6 % of 997MB IP: 192.168.1.42 CPU temp: 52°C Usage of /: 24% of 3.6G Last login: Tue Jul 3 13:48:59 2018 root@pisdr:~# apt-get remove unattended-upgrades Reading package lists...
