  1. During the last days the system crashed twice - by crashed I mean that no SSH or other connections was possible and I had to force-power off. I used it for months without crashes before so its probably related to a new SATA drive. I wanted to look at the syslog and I noticed that /var/log/syslog only shows entries starting from the current boot and the /var/log.hdd/syslog is empty. Do I understand correctly that armbian logs only to /var/log which is a ram drive so the logs (or at least the syslog) is never persisted? How can I find out whether the SATA drive is responsible and why? Maybe it has a too high power consumption under special circumstances? (its a 2,5" SSD so I would not expect that ....) Thank you.
  2. For compatibility reason I'd like to have an NTFS data partition as partition 1 and the ext4 system partition as partition 2. I achieved this with debian installer, but I fail doing so using armbian. Can you tell me how to achive this for armbian? My idea was to copy the prepared partition from armbian-SD-image to partition 2 and configure u boot to start from there, but I failed in doing so... thank you
  3. I read a lot of U Boot documentation the last hours but I still fail at fundamental understanding, like: - where can variables be set? boot.scr obviously, but there is also uEnv.txt boot.cmd armbianEnv.txt ... and in which order and precendence are they parsed? (If I set a variable in different files, which value will be used? first? last? ...) - how is a change made persistent (saveenv does not work) - Can sub-variables be changed, e.g. root in bootargs what I am trying to achieve atm is to change the boot partion rootdev from p1 to p2. Even thou I think I patched the relevant files, printenv shows that bootargs and rootdev are still set to p1. Even if I set rootdev to ps (verified by printenv) running boot fails (and afterwards its set to p1 again). I did not try to edit bootargs because I dont know how to do this without retyping the entire variable content (which is error-prone and annoying) A lot of documentation is done on compiling/building, I basically want to now how to mange the "grub" part of u boot. Would be nice if someone has a few hints or url(s) for me. Tahnk you.
  4. I guess this is hardware-independent, so I post here. Looking for ways to disable IPv6 I found 3 ways to achieve this on Linux, none of them really working for armbian debian build. 1. /etc/sysctl.conf: net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1 this disables the network interfaces to use IPv6, not IPv6 itself. This method is also known to cause trouble e.g with X-Forwarding via SSH and Postfix server. netstat still lists IPv6 entries 2. /etc/default/grub (GRUB tells the kernel not to load IPv6) This does not exist in armbian, I guess it is simply not using GRUB 3. /etc/modprobe.d/aliases change alias net-pf-10 ipv6 to alias net-pf-10 off Some people suggest to additionally add alias ipv6 off I'm not so sure what this is actually doing. It does probably set an alias so that some other instance that starts net-pf-10 does not start ipv6 but instead "off" which is not defined so nothing is started?! However this file does not exist in armbian as well So how can I disable IPv6 on armbian?
  5. On my banana I get the following error: sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre-headless Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.
