  1. I just cannot access spi on my Rock64. I read a couple posts of it but none works out for me I'm running Armbian 22.05.3 Focal with Linux 5.15.52-rockchip64 on it. Tried enabling spi-jedec-nor and spi-spidev overlay, but with none of them I get output when executing ls /dev/spi*. Is it maybe a hardware issue, reading this post suggests that to me: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=5473&pid=34616#pid34616 But I cannot make much sense out of it. Can anyone help me get spi working?
  2. Hi, I'd like to control ws2812 led's via gpio spi. I'm using this octoprint build by ldiaz: I checked /boot/armbianEnv.txt and there's overlay_prefix=rock64 and after enabling spi via armbian-config also overlays=spi-spidev. Then I rebooted but ls /dev/spi* shows nothing. Can anyone help?
  3. Sry to revive this but is it currently possible to enable spi with the current buster image or still only in dev or next images? If yes, how? I tried enabling via armbian-config and rebooted but ls dev/spi* shows nothing. I'd like to control ws2812 led's via gpio spi.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. You mean not at all, also not for server images? I don't care about destop usage, I only use it as a server.
  9. 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.
  10. Thx for instaneous reply. Is there a way to get the fix faster? It will take longer to get it via apt upgrade, right?
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
