  1. Ok, I found more info myself, just want a short confirmation: This is the Image I want to use: Armbian_5.67_Aml-s805_Debian_stretch_next_4.20.0-rc3-next-20181123.img.xz So just flash it on sd card using etcher for example. Then edit uEnv.ini and replace the name of the dtb file to meson8b_ec100.dtb. Insert the sd card, power on and done? Or do I still have to boot android, install some update&backup app and choose one of there update files? Edit: Ok that did not work. For the vero2 it is possible to run android on sd card and boot from it. Osmc is on internal nand. In ssh if I enter sudo reboot androidv2, the box boots android from sd card. Now I tried the command if there is no sd card plugged in and I get this: So I assume on the internal storage there is also an android recovery I now plugged in the sd card with armbian on it. I can navigate to :O I could install it... do you think this will most likely brick my device, or is there a good chance it will work and I would be able to boot armbian from sd card? Edit: ok, I got it booting armbian from sd card Just insert the sd card, take a toothpick, poke it into the audio connector next to the hdmi port. There is a button inside you need to press. Then connect the power. Don't hold it for too long. Then wait a bit and ssh into armbian. done.
  2. Stupid question: With reading you mean copying from hc2 to local machine, right? That's what I keep testing. I could lower ram usage a lot, sth. is messed up with my jackett (mono) container. But even disabling the container I cannot get more than like 60mb/s max.... I now check with htop, I think it's nice to check processes. During copy via smb I see that all the big cores are pretty maxed least htop shows that. Still cpu temp isn't as high as it ways some months back when I used to get my 100mb/s. I'm thinking about overclocking the hc2 xD Idk if that may help..what do you think. Since I used to get these "high temps" like up to 85 °C I had the plan to add better cooling some time ago. I mainly was worried about the hdd temp being too high for my taste, I think like 50 °C. So now I finally added active cooling and with that I think I could overclock the hc2 It's not very professional But it works. Took this fan kit, cut off a bit from the metal frame and added feet.
  3. Hello, I like to see that armbian runs on S805 boxes I have a vero 2 lying around that I want to use as an octoprint server. It has also has an Amlogic S805 SoC with 1GB Ram and 8GB nand storage. I think osmc (the os for it) will be too bloated, so I want to run armbian on it. Now my knowledge is a bit limited on this....I found the github page where it explains how to build an image or a kernel....which I've never done before. Is there a fairly up to date image I can just flash on a micro sdcard via etcher, pop that in an get going? If so, can/should I install the image to the nand? I heard nand should be faster than class 10 micro sdcard. But also read on vero2/osmc forum that the nand has special partitioning, maybe that might be an issue, idk. Well I'd appreciate any help on getting armbian to work on my currently useless vero 2.
  4. Nice, that's good By chance now I saw following in ssh welcome screen: Memory usage: 90 % of 1996MB Could this be the problem? I never checked this, I thought I have plenty ram left. Comparing to older setup all I added to the mix is docker + some small containers based on alpine linux. And wow.. that one mono app needs lots of ram: Edit: Ok, now I disabled mono app and also saw that a python app uses quite a bit of cpu, also disabled that and get around 70 mb/s. Can't I somehow tell samba to "overrule" all other apps, so I get my 100 mb/s when I need them? I don't copy stuff back and forth all the time, but when I do, full gigabit speed would be nice.
  5. Ok, so after PHP issues I started off with a fresh armbian install and via armbian-config I installed OMV 4. Install finished without any problems but if I copy stuff via smb the tranfer speed is really bad and I don't know why. On an old install with OMV 3 I used to get nice 100 mb/s. The cpu temp also used to be at like 80 °C during copy, now it looks like this: Following extra options are set in smb.conf: min receivefile size = 16384 write cache size = 524288 getwd cache = yes socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY I also checked smbd app, it's running on a big core.... I get the feeling that not all the avaiable resources of my HC2 are used anymore. Can anyone help me here? The reason number 1 for choosing armbian + OMV were the introduced tweaks that got me NAS-like tranfer speeds... Other os' I tried all have equally bad tranfer speeds. I wish everyone reading this a Happy New Year 2019!
  6. Removed omv and installed samba. As expected, now I get like 60 mb/s transfer speed. What tweaks are made to omv's samba installed via armbian-config? I copied and pasted the old smb conf, I guess there are important settings I have also set: write cache size = 524288 getwd cache = yes use sendfile = yes min receivefile size = 16384 Also I made sure samba process is running on big cores. Still only 60 mb/s.
  7. For me it's overkill anyways. The reason I used it is because with other distros via smb I "only" got 60 mb/s transfer speed. I read the omv installed via armbian-config comes with enhancements, also in smb settings. And indeed with that I got 100 mb/s. I'd happily ditch omv if I'd know what I have to change in smb settings to get that speed. Does the samba install from armbian-config come with same enhancements?..tbh I didn't try that yet.
  8. Ok, it is settled, I'm gonna reinstall omv...but I don't know how to do it Maybe someone could help me? I tried to purge omv packages and reinstall it via armbian-config, which led to errors: Got the info that omv install via armbian-config is only supposed to work on a clean debian install. However I don't plan on reinstalling armbian and start over again. So, how would I reinstall omv and have all the specific armbian improvements?
  9. I'm gonna keep this short. I installed Omv on my Odroid HC2 via armbian-config. I messed up and now cannot get into discs or filesystems tab in Omv and cannot add new shared folder. Using a htpc script called Atomic Toolkit, I updated an app, I think nginx and by that the PHP 7.2 automatically was installed by the script. Here is the thread on Omv. I'm writing this in the hope that maybe @tkaiser or someone else may have an idea to fix this. If not, I'll start over and would like to know how I can reinstall omv. In armbian-config I tried to untick omv and continue, but this does not remove omv ..Maybe I don't have to completely remove omv. I just want to make sure I have the "armbian omv" again.
  10. Using the usb-uart connection I now can see that the root fs isn't found. I changed the UUID in /etc/fstab but I noticed that in /boot/boot.ini in rootdev line there's the old UUID. How can I change this? What I did so far: Interrupt boot to get to this Exynos5422 # command prompt. There I typed in setenv rootdev "UUID=d30adc0f-4d9c-4d0c-b705-ed514e1e69c8". Didn't work. Created /boot/armbianEnv.txt file, put the above line in and saved. Didn't work. What am I missing here? Edit: Trying this from the documentation: Enter these commands, replacing root device path if necessary. Select setenv line with ttyS0 for serial, tty1 for keyboard+monitor (these are for booting with mainline kernel, check boot.cmd for your device for commands related to legacy kernel): setenv bootargs init=/bin/bash root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootwait console=ttyS0,115200 # or setenv bootargs init=/bin/bash root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootwait console=tty1 ext4load mmc 0 0x49000000 /boot/dtb/${fdtfile} ext4load mmc 0 0x46000000 /boot/zImage env set fdt_high ffffffff bootz 0x46000000 - 0x49000000 If I type in this: ext4load mmc 0 0x49000000 /boot/dtb/${fdtfile} I get file not found error. Trying a specific file from /boot/dtb (I guess exynos5422-odroidhc1.dtb is the right one) also does not work -> file not found. I was being naughty and edited /boot/boot.ini even though it's stated it shouldn't be edited. Now the system successfully boots.
  11. I now bought the more expensive one from odroid for 16€.. since all I could find provide 3.3 or 5V whereas the odroid can only handle 1.8V. Saw a vid where someone installed a LDO Regulator to get to 1.8V but since I live in a capital where there's no electronics store () I'd have to order such LDO seperately so I went straight for the odroid one.
  12. Is there detailed info somewhere how to do so? Like I posted here I once prepared a new sd card with armbian, poped it in to have the system resize to full sd card storage and then restored the rsync backup. Back then I was successful restoring the backup on hummingboard. Now I tried with odroid hc2 backup via ssh. Turns out you have to be root on the client if you pull a backup via ssh, else the files and folders user,group and permission won't be transfered. Also after restore I changed the UUID in /etc/fstab to the new sd card. Since I first set up armbian with a fresh install I should also have u-boot on it. Unfortunately system does not boot on my odroid hc2 (or maybe just to some point). I feel like I'm missing some tiny thing... I also zero'd out the first 1M of the sd card and formated it before seting up fresh armbian. After restoring I checked the sd card and the permission, user, and group of all files and folders are correct. Right now I also have no way to see any output, I think I have to get some usb-uart module like this and connect it to my pc. Right now with new sd card I have solid red led (power), blue led and green led. After short time blue Led should start blinking and also green led and the hdd should spin up...which does not happen. Also I cannot connect the the hc2 via ssh. I cannot figure out what I might be overlooking here...
  13. Ok, since I installed omv via armbian config I thought it may be a specific error related to omv builds for armbian.
  14. Today I wanted to upgrade from jessie to stretch, I'm following this website. After changing the word jessie to stretch in /etc/apt/sources.list and in every file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* I noticed that changing the omv-extras-org.list from: # deb jessie main # Testing deb jessie main to # # deb stretch main # Testing deb stretch main causes apt-get update to throw errors. So I decided to leave jessie in there for now. Ok now apt-get update precedes until the line: Get:23 stretch/non-free armhf Packages [71,2 kB] Fetched 10,7 MB in 8s (1.310 kB/s) and leaves me with a plain cursor. Now if I hit Ctrl+C I get the following output on screen: root@hc2:~# Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/omv-mkaptidx", line 113, in <module> "uri": pkg.candidate.uri, File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/apt/", line 567, in uri return next(iter(self._uris())) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/apt/", line 550, in _uris yield indexfile.archive_uri(self._records.filename) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/apt/", line 309, in _records if self.package._pcache._records.lookup(self._cand.file_list[0]): KeyboardInterrupt I see some python and omv error Can anyone help? I hoped for a painless upgrade and the first problems are appearing even before the "main course"
  15. Thx for the info and sry for my last question in the wrong thread Could you guys recommend any procedure for updating jessie to stretch? There's so much out there. So far I only updated ubuntu versions and as far as I remember it was sth. like apt-get dist-upgrade... Is that what you meant by standard way, @Igor? Background: Really don't wanna mess up my current install, but yeah I have an up to date rsync backup in case sth. goes wrong.
