  1. be it $30 $60 $90 or even $120 (depending on proportional specs), it is indeed all 'promising bright future', but point is: future also means commitment and effectiveness to contribute up to bleeding edge HEAD of linux git.
  2. 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 ?
  3. Sorry to ask: which network repository do you mean, perhaps: http://apt.armbian.com ? Can I change a recent installation to fetch kernel automatic?
  4. curious, do you plan to use panfrost for X11 driver or just for framebuffer ?
  5. @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...
  6. Good luck with your Khadas EDGE ! Everyone eagerly waits for the Software you build...
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Perhaps. Note, one also needs to choose and set correct dtb (in /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf for 2018 u-boot).
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. what exact command do you give and what is the exact error output?
  13. if you just want kodi, why not go for elec kind of solution?
  14. OK @balbes150 my bad ... I voted 1. but should have voted 2. then
  15. I may have misunderstood. I flashed your multiboot u-boot so do I need to vote 2?
  16. In the script I notice IMAGE_DTB="/boot/dtb.img" dd if="$IMAGE_DTB" of="/dev/dtb" bs=262144 status=none && sync so it seems it is copied verbatim. Sorry to not answer your question accurately.
  17. Thanks for extra information. Perhaps gxbb_p201.dtb in same 3.14 folder would be worth trying. You can still try to boot from external SD using that dtb.img. It does not hurt. If it fits your mxq pro 4k better then again you can try copy to internal. I once had a device called mxq pro 4k which had p201 in build prop. But, as said, there are several mxq pro 4k device variants. Good luck
  18. Not sure if I can help much. So you compile your own dtb from dts ? Also, which kernel are you running? Just curious: where do the mxq_eMMC.dts mxq_SD.dts files come from?
  19. Are you sure mxq pro 4k is p200, not p201 ? If you have (a backup of) android /system/build.prop you can check there. Also how much RAM does the device have? I must admit, there are many boxes called mxq pro 4k with minor differences.
  20. I try to make a DIY lightweight gentoo based system which can act as mainly router, switch or hotspot. Default configurations need to be adjusted manually. Certainly not as user friendly as OpenWRT. Not for general usage. And, for now, it is 'WISP' (work in slow progress :-)).
  21. Where can the 'new version of u-boot' for Khadas VIM and VIM2 be downloaded? Is it backward compatible with 'old version' or does one also need to change some of the /boot scripts?
