  1. cool I have installed Armbian_20.05.0_Arm-64_focal_current_5.6.0-rc6_20200326.img (on my spot-i7-pro, you know which one :-)) it has kernel version 5.6.0-rc6. If I do: root@spot-i7-pro:~# apt-get dist-upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done The following packages will be upgraded: linux-image-current-arm-64 1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 28.5 MB of archives. After this operation, 4,512 kB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue? [Y/n] n Abort. apt-get download linux-image-current-arm-64 ar x linux-image-current-arm-64_20.05.0_arm64.deb tar Jtvf data.tar.xz I see kernel version 5.6.0-rc4 ... root@spot-i7-pro:~# tar Jtvf data.tar.xz | grep /boot/vmlinuz -rw-r--r-- root/root 27795968 2020-03-03 14:58 ./boot/vmlinuz-5.6.0-rc4-arm-64 this is an older version ... also, will installing linux-image-current-arm-64 automatically update zImage and uInitrd in /boot ?
  2. Sorry to ask: which network repository do you mean, perhaps: http://apt.armbian.com ? Can I change a recent installation to fetch kernel automatic?
  3. curious, do you plan to use panfrost for X11 driver or just for framebuffer ?
  4. @gnthibault Before flashing to internal you could have taken backup from internal eMMC (using ddbr) to restore when anything goes wrong or should you change your mind and decide to revert back. The install-2018 script is text file and easy to understand. So certainly open source and also self documented. Nevertheless, I always run it step by step manually (did so twice on different s912 kvim2) as to double check for myself what is being done. Basically it partitions eMMC and copies SD to eMMC. Then it adjust few text files to refer to eMMC in stead of SD. Are your 2 S912 boxes equal model? Then maybe you can backup eMMC from one and restore it to other? Just a thought...
  5. Good luck with your Khadas EDGE ! Everyone eagerly waits for the Software you build...
  6. I copied s912-uboot.img to uboot.img indeed. It was on VIM2 though. People report different results on different hardware. I am planning to try it on other hardware soon.
  7. I am not so sure: root@aml:~# uname -a Linux aml 4.19.0-rc7-aml-s9xxx #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Oct 19 09:03:49 MSK 2018 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux root@aml:~# zcat /proc/config.gz | grep -i MT7601 # CONFIG_MT7601U is not set
  8. Perhaps. Note, one also needs to choose and set correct dtb (in /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf for 2018 u-boot).
  9. what I did on VIM2 was [when booted Armbian_5.64_Aml-s9xxx_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.19.0-rc7_desktop_20181019 from SD]: - in /boot/ copy s912-uboot.img to uboot.img - in /root/ run install-2018.sh perhaps not for faint of heart but it worked for me.
  10. It looks to me you are more after AML specific modules like from, say amlogic 3.14.29 kernel. These may never have reached 4.18.x
  11. what exact command do you give and what is the exact error output?
  12. if you just want kodi, why not go for elec kind of solution?
