    Freescale i.MX6 Dual mini ITX Board from Advantech

    I own another imx6 based device (utilite pro) which doesn't boot the armbian image for the cubox-i out of the box. After some bisects I've found a common mainline kernel configuration for both of them. The mainline kernel comes with device tree source files for various imx6 based boards, but obviously not for yours, so you are bound to the kernel releases issued by advantech. If you have a more or less working setup (i.e. u-boot boots up a kernel from a certain root device and the kernel is able load its modules && you can watch this from your serial console), then you may replace the existing userland by something different of your choice.

    Long term availability SoC

    I'd recommend a Freescale/NXP SoC as well. As they are selling their chips to industrial clients the product longevity is substantially better compared to chips used in tablets, phones or set-top boxes, see here for more details. But product longevity has it's price ...
  3. I've found a workaround but only for the traditional way of configuring network interfaces via /etc/network/interfaces.d: auto eth0 iface eth0 inet manual auto lan0 iface lan0 inet dhcp pre-up /sbin/ifup eth0
  4. The new firmware prohibits the address usage between 0x4000000 and 0x54f0000, therefore you need to adjust the load addresses for initrd, kernel and dtb.
  5. Many Open WRT devices use a similar architecture with one CPU port and a VLAN capable ethernet switch, they don't seem to need an extra NIC. IMHO pcie support has improved a lot in recent kernels. You may try a mainline kernel instead.

    Problems installing docker

    Most likely the kernel you are using does not provide all the feature necessary to start docker. If you have access to the kernel configuration, you may check it by yourself, see here for details. As an alternative you may check the Ubuntu provided packages for Docker: sudo apt -y install lxc aufs-tools cgroup-lite apparmor

    Banana Pi F2 - Freescale i.MX6Quad

    The imx6 was developed before the nxp acqusition took place.

    Thanks for the fish!

    Which kernel version are you using?
  9. At least they put appropriate cables to their boards ...
  10. You may try to build it by yourself or download an archive containing the image.

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X (ver 5.44 =<)

    Have you tried to reduce the eMMC frequency, see here and here?

    Udoo Quad EOS

    I have two other imx6 based devices (Utilite Pro & Cubox-i 4), both running a nearly unmodified mainline kernel.
  14. IMHO there is no way to implement any kind of interaction when running a boot script. I've ended up defining a set of u-boot macros which I run on the interactive console, eg `run _tĀ“ to boot a test kernel `run _2' to boot from the second partition of the (default) boot device For the ODROID N1 we're discussing to potential use of petitboot due to the current u-boot limitations.
  15. The kernel headers are part of the archive (via `make headers_installĀ“).
