  1. I have 2 printers, do you think I could connect both to one sbc? For now I plan on using filament runout plugin and that bed level visualizer plugin. I found 2 sbc's in the orange pi line that could fit: Orange Pi One plus which has 64bit processor but only one..or 2? usb ports and Orange Pi Pc which has 3 usb ports but no 64bit processor. However both "only" have 1gb ram... I'm unsure if I'll just abandon the filament sensor and stay with amlogic tv boxes. Imo they have a much better price/performance ratio.
  2. Too bad I only tried octoprint directly on the pi zero and I found it to be too weak for it. The orange pi zero doesn't seem to be that much more powerful.
  3. Hi, I plan on running octoprint on my Amlogic S912 china android box. Now I need to connect a filament runout sensor via gpio, in a octoprint plugin one specifies the used pins. Unfortunately my device has no dedicated gpio header built in, so I want to ask: Is there a way (that maybe works easily with armbian) to have gpio somehow? Like some usb stick with gpio on it that can forward gpio in and output? I have a pi zero lying around and found this https://github.com/raspberrypi/gpioexpander/wiki where some pigpio library is mentioned. But no idea if or how this could work on an Amlogic box. Any ideas?
  4. I have another problem now, suddenly armbian won't boot anymore I already have booted armbian before and have another amlogic box running it. Now I tried toothpick method on new Tanix TX5 Pro (S905x2 4GB, 64GB) and it worked initially! I then tried the other legacy image and different device trees (noticed that built in wifi doesn't work on S905x2) but now I can't boot from sd card or usb stick anymore...idk why, there's no serial console output via hdmi anymore I burned image to sd with etcher, changed uenv.txt, tried toothpick method, tried via update app, then tried in linux "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1M count=8" also tried with win32diskimager....nothing. But I see Tanix logo then nothing, without usb stick or sd card it boots into android. So I think multiboot works but can't boot armbian. Any ideas? I'm out of ideas.. Edit: Nevermind, it works via ssh. I just don't get hdmi output anymore.. PS: Can you recommend a certain device tree for my box? Is there any description of the different dtbs? I just noticed that the meson-g12a-tanix-tx5-max.dtb has no ethernet and no wifi working. With u200 dtb, ethernet works.
  5. You mean not at all, also not for server images? I don't care about destop usage, I only use it as a server.
  6. Hi, any way we can get wifi working with these images on S905x2? I just bought a Tanix TX5 pro box (S905x2 4GB ram, 64GB emmc variant) and used this image, first with the meson-g12a-tx5-max.dtb and couldn't get any ethernet connection and then with meson-g12a-u200.dtb and got ethernet now but wifi isn't working. Sb stated we need bcmdhd module which seems isn't included in these images.
  7. Thx for instaneous reply. Is there a way to get the fix faster? It will take longer to get it via apt upgrade, right?
  8. I just tried wg-quick to set up wireguard and get : RTNETLINK answers: Operation not supported Unable to access interface: Protocol not supported modprobe wireguard gets me: modprobe: FATAL: Module wireguard not found in directory /lib/modules/4.14.133-odroidxu4 running stretch on odroid hc2, did update & upgrade and rebooted. Any ideas how I can get wireguard to work?
  9. Meh, dl speed is only at 7 mb/s. With my router I get at least 10 mb/s....Any idea if I could up that somehow? I now changed governor to performance but that doesn't seem to do much. Strange thing I noticed is, that running htop, it only shows 8 little cpu cores not 4 big and 4 little....Also cpu frequency never exceeds 1.5 ghz on any core....Is there sth. wrong? This is cat cat /etc/default/cpufrequtils output: # WARNING: this file will be replaced on board support package (linux-root-...) upgrade ENABLE=true MIN_SPEED=600000 MAX_SPEED=2000000 GOVERNOR=performance
  10. Hi, I want to try out my Odroid HC2 as an openvpn client. I don't expect great performance but I want to make sure I set it up correctly. This is why I want to ask if anyone can give any recommendations or tweaks for using it as an openvpn client. Idk much about openvpn, I know it uses openssl for de and encryption. Is there a way to use hardware de and encryption so I can speed things up and have a better download speed via openvpn? Or is hw de/encryption maybe already used by default if I just install openvpn package? Any recommendations on how to correctly set this up are appreciated.
  11. 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 aml_autoscript.zip :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.
  12. 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 out..at 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
