  1. ODROID HC1 / HC2

    Thx for the review. Sounds good to me. I'll connect my second 3,5" hdd which is in an usb 3.0 enclosure to the usb 2.0 port. Did you happen to test the transfer speed through usb 2.0 port? I guess it's 30 mb/s..or even faster? Basically I just need to access and play back fullhd video files from the external hdd. It's full and nothing gets stored on it. Won't be any problem, right?
  2. [preview] Generate OMV images for SBC with Armbian

    Oh no, I hope this doesn't mean you completely stop doing your reviews alltogether I'm waiting for the upcoming odroid HC2 and wanted to make a purchase dependent on a review of yours including its nas capabilities. I also plan to use an omv armbian image with possible tweaks of yours... I guess I'll have to use the existing one for xu4/hc1/mc1 and hope there's not significant changes in upcoming odroid HC2
  3. Odroid XU4 - Ubuntu Xenial doesn't run on eMMC

    Sry just found omv thread and edited my previous post :/
  4. Odroid XU4 - Ubuntu Xenial doesn't run on eMMC

    Which ones will be interesting in your opinion? Helios4 looks interesting but I may not even need 2 hdds...Maybe I'll swap hdds and sell the wd my cloud with 3tb hdd in it. Is there a 1 hdd solution that comes to your mind? I also thought of buying the odroid hc1, the hdd enclosure has an esata port, maybe I could hook up the external hdd to the sata port of the hc1 with sata to esata cable.. Unfortunately I saw that there's no "omv armbian" image for the hc1, .. I don't know if I can do that myself. But the hc1 should be as powerful as the xu4, it has the same SoC. Only cooling worries me here. Edit: Ok, just found your thread on omv forum where you state the xu4 name image is also for hc1/hc2/mc1 and read that hardkernel wants to release odroid hc2 for a 3,5" hdd by the end of this month. I will post following questions in this thread, fits better.
  5. Odroid XU4 - Ubuntu Xenial doesn't run on eMMC

    .... so much info in so little link. Thanks for that....For me as a beginner the XU4 Cloudshell 2 combination seemed perfect + on their website they advertise copy speeds via network of ~ 100 mb/s and nothing about loose connections etc.. Well, now I'm exactly where I started off.... Btw. thx also for the insight about sd,hdd and emmc performance. This all confirmes my decision to stay with armbian as os. But now I again don't know which hardware I should use. Pardon me to get off topic but since it seems to me that you're the "diy nas" expert here I want to ask for your advice I have too much devices lying around (probably you have more lying around ) and plan to replace them with...well..idealy one SBC and an enclosure: -) WD My Cloud 6TB, single bay NAS (I'm unhappy with the os, I just needed a new HDD and it was a good offer) -) "old" 3TB HDD in external USB 3.0 enclosure hooked up to NAS via USB port -) Hummingboard i2eX (you're probably familiar to that board) working as my home server -) dirt cheap S905X china box running libreelec working as my media center I think I will stay with the S905X box, it works really good with libreelec. All other devices should be replaced. I would like to take my two hdd's, put them in a case along with a SBC and use this as a NAS/homesever combo. File transfer of ~ 100-110 mb/s via gigabit lan would be really nice. The homeserver is running dl/torrent servers like transmission, nzbget, jdownloader2 | managers like sickrage,radarr,htpcmanager and also unrar at a decent decompressing speed would be nice. All of that + NAS functionallity...... Do you think it's doable or am I dreaming of an "egg-laying wool-milk-sow"? The Rock64 seems promising, but do you think it will be able to handle the homeserver jobs?
  6. Odroid XU4 - Ubuntu Xenial doesn't run on eMMC

    I think my question fits in here: Did anyone try to install rootfs on a hdd using nand-sata-install? I plan on buying xu4 + cloudshell 2 installing 2 hdds. First I thought I get N eMMC module but user meveric from odroid forum told me, that write speed is better if rootfs is on hdd. Acording to him read and write speed is ~ 130 MB/s if running from hdd. And from eMMC read speed is like 190 MB/s but write speed is waay lower, 35-75 MB/s. Gesendet von meinem ONE E1003 mit Tapatalk
  7. How to backup/transfer Armbian filesystem?

    Reading this thread it sounds quite complicated to restore armbian. The way I did it with other operating systems is: Prepare a new sd card with the newest armbian install and restore a previously made rsync backup to it. I don't quite remember the details on which option(s) I used to restore the rsync backup. So is this bad practice? 'Cause it always worked, and seems faster and easier to me than dd'ing only the first bit from the old sd card (what if that sd card is faulty?), reformat and resize a partition and change files in armbianEnv.tx and fstab. I think if I did a restore to a larger sd card I resized the new card after the restore.
  8. The msata ssd is not recognized at all anymore.. I also put it in my sata enclosure and tried it on my pc...nothing, not showing up. My last hope is the application testdisk. Good thing, the sata-nand install script didn't work when I started to use armbian, so I pretty much set everything up on sd card. Also good thing that the script didn't delete stuff on my sd card afterwards so now I only have minor things missing. Besides that once again I did not backup my stuff...which was stupid I once used an application called rsnapshot that can make scheduled backups using rsync. It was a bit of work to set it up, maybe this could be included in the softy area in the armbian-config script sometime in the future...would be great... Like with some predifined setting: choose place to backup and done. Can I close this thread somehow? Since it has nothing to do with armbian itself, this is a fantastic and rock solid distribution!
  9. Well... booting with new sd card i get this output: I checked the UUID, it's correct. Next I ran armbian from sd card, msata ssd is still connected, and blkid does not show me anything: Hmm.. maybe the ssd got messed up somehow? Now I'm thinking of hooking the ssd up to my pc and run fsck, does anyone have a better idea?
  10. Yeah..I also could prepare another SD Card and copy the armbianEnv.txt from the old SD Card to have it "point to" the msata ssd. Do you think that would work?... This way I would be able to determine if its a SD card failure.
  11. No, I don't really know how this works.. Would I need an adapter from usb to serial? And pc?... Could I get output by adding console=tty1 to the armbianEnv.txt file? I didn't find time 'til now, I'm gonna look into it this weekend. I just hope it's no kernel panic ..had these before using archlinux on that thing.
  12. I don't know how to troubleshoot this, I connected a wired keyboard and at boot where it says "Hit any key to stop autoboot" it does not recognize any key presses from my keyboard.
  13. Until yesterday my humminboard 1 i2ex worked without any flaws. Now after a restart I cannot access it via ssh anymore. I thought the Ip adress my have changed somehow cause I also restarted my router but it under active clients in router webif either. Also no video output via hdmi...guess that's normal since it's a debian server image. What I can see is the uboot showing up the count down, just quick, I could read ..wrong image format..and something with source.. that's it. Then screen turns black. I have the rootfs on msata ssd and if I remember correctly I removed all other unnecessary files from micro sd card many month ago. Is there any keyboard combination to get output of a console or something via hdmi?
  14. Default Firewall on armbian??

    I'm pretty sure I'm wrong here with my issue but since I'm out of ideas I gotta ask here just to make sure. I've successfully set up a vpn server on linksys router running dd-wrt. Connecting from outside I can reach all local IP's despite of my hummingboard running armbian. I didn't add or change any firewall settings. What I also tried is to give it a static Ip adress by editing /etc/network/interfaces and adding/uncommenting this: iface eth0 inet static address netmask network broadcast gateway and also /etc/resolv.conf nameserver ..with no success. So my question is if there's some kind of defaul firewall running on armbian that is to blame?

    Thx but not working. I get "syntaxerror at unexpected word 'newline, line 7 '<!DOCTYPE html>" Nevermind, I made a mistake. Thx for the help!
