  1. I haven't yet tried to build my own image, but I tested few other dongles. Surprisingly, `0cf3:9271 Qualcomm Atheros Communications AR9271 802.11n` also did not work because of missing firmware `htc_9271-1.4.0.fw`. So, I think that build has issues with not only missing RTL8188EUS.
  2. Flashed the latest Jammy 5.15.48 image and the device went offline After connecting to HDMI I found out that RTL8188EUS is no longer available. Previous Focal image worked fine in headless mode with a `0bda:8179` dongle. Anyone knows why the driver has been removed? Thanks
  3. I had to downgrade to last known working Armbian 20.05.1 Bionic version with this 8189fs module version: $ modinfo 8189fs filename: /lib/modules/5.4.43-sunxi/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8189fs/8189fs.ko version: v4.3.24.8_22657.20170607 author: Realtek Semiconductor Corp. description: Realtek Wireless Lan Driver license: GPL srcversion: 782ED5E387B69B8750A9E7F alias: sdio:c*v024CdF179* depends: cfg80211 intree: Y name: 8189fs vermagic: 5.4.43-sunxi SMP mod_unload ARMv7 thumb2 p2v8 Now all works fine like previously
  4. Hi, I have been running Armbian on OrangePi Lite for more than a year just fine. Then I decided to upgrade and flashed the latest version. Now with the latest version the device looses wifi every few days no matter which wifi device I use. In order to investigate I have plugged additional USB wifi. Some time both wifi work. Then built-in may disconnect and stop working, but USB keeps working. Or vice versa, USB stops working, but the built in keeps working. I have been able to send syslog to an external machine and here what it showed Connection works fine: The next day one of the connections stops working and complains that the WPA key may be wrong: Obviously, nothing has changed, the hotspot is still the same and WPA key has not been changed. Both wifi connections are using the same key, and one works fine. Rebooting resolves the issue, but after few days it is back again. Anyone have seen this behavior? Before downgrading to a version prior 2020 I'd like to check as much as possible if this is some bug Thanks
  5. UPDATE I have set up a fresh sd card to investigate and collect logs, but this time `ifupdown` worked Probably it was some typo I made in /etc/network/interfaces during setup Also, a note for future myself when I visit this thread again, there is a way to create the connection through `armbian_first_run.txt`. I tested and it worked. So, probably, better to switch to this way to have less conflicts between Network Manager and ifupdown
  6. The `ifupdown` method to connect a headless device no longer works with the latest Armbian 21.02.3. For some reason the interface remains down and requires manual `sudo ifup -v wlan0` `rc.local` does not start as there is root password change prompt blocking it Anyone knows what do I need to change to start wlan0 on boot? Or any other way to configure network on a device without HDMI? Thanks
  7. Hi, I have connected Orange Pi Lite over serial UART, but looks like the default settings are to not output the boot log to serial. You can only see U-Boot messages, then "Uncompressing Linux kernel" and after some time the login prompt comes. What exactly do I need to change/configure to get the classic kernel boot log to serial console? Thanks
  8. There was a critical vulnerability found in Realtek wireless drivers: The vulnerability has been assigned CVE-2019-17666 and a patch proposed: https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/10/16/1226 I would like to get some statement if Armbian users are affected and if yes when is the patch going to be released Thanks
  9. I am successfully using this cron script every 1 minute to detect wifi failure and reload the module: #!/bin/bash status=`/sbin/ifconfig wlan0 | grep "inet 192"` if [ ! -z "$status" ]; then exit 0; fi echo "Detected wifi failure" dmesg | grep __cfg80211_connect_result | mail -s "Wifi failure" root@localhost sudo rmmod 8189fs sudo modprobe 8189fs sleep 3 nmcli connection up id mynetworkname HTH
  10. https://pastebin.com/AAvCYVkd Note that the script reports it's 26 C, but kernel reports different:
  11. Hi, as it is quite hot now in Europe, one of my boards is experiencing overheat and shuts down automatically: Jun 25 16:52:27 localhost kernel: [74505.568246] thermal thermal_zone0: critical temperature reached (90 C), shutting down Who is initiating this shutdown? Is it possible to: 1. Change the temperature value that triggers the shutdown 2. Hook a script instead of direct shutdown so I can handle the overheat Thanks
  12. Thanks for the idea I found this solution to be more compatible: /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf Source: https://wiki.debian.org/NetworkManager#Wired_Networks_are_Unmanaged
  13. Hi, I have few boards that were once connected to wifi manually, but now are headless. I would like now to upgrade Armbian and put wifi connection during sd card flash. Tried the classic way: /etc/network/interfaces When the board boots it connects to the wifi, I see few pings and then it goes offline After taking one of the boards for troubleshooting using serial console I found that NeworkManager starts right after the network is up and screws everything: Executing sudo ifdown wlan0 && sudo ifup -v wlan0 restores the connection My question is: what is the correct way to put wifi configuration on the sd card of a headless Armbian installation? Thanks
  14. One more update I found that reloading the kernel module helps to restore wireless interface:
