    NanoPI M4

    I copied the whole Arduino15 folder. 50 thousand files, 6GB, even compressed still 3GB. Shortly before the end of the upload, vnc got out of step, only had to log me off and on with the client, then I could see that the copy process was finished cleanly. Unfortunately the Arduino IDE doesn't show the installed boards or libraries. This is getting too off-topic. But the Armbian did well with this action.

    Because everything ran so smoothly and thanks to the SATA HAT there is enough space for experiments, I installed the desktop under Armbian Stretch in armbian-config. Then I installed the Arduino IDE 1.8.9 for Linux64, cif-utils to get to my sketches and tightvncserver to work comfortably from my PC. Everything was chic until I tried to set up the IDE for my STM32 and SAMD boards. Dance with me the BOSSAnova.
  3. In my eyes an access to the serial console is absolutely necessary, if you don't want it, you should get other toys. SBC are often offered with a recommended USB-UART adapter, for a small extra charge, as an option and I have used this possibility already several times. The photo probably doesn't show all USB-UART adapters I own, only those that were handy.

    Me too, mine arrived yesterday, but the 48W switching power supply arrived today. Only the installation was a bit fiddly. I had copied Armbian_5.65_Nanopim4_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.162_desktop to an SD at the end of October and transferred it from there to an eMMC using armbian-config. In December I had packed a mSATA SSD into a USB3 case, connected it to the NanoPi and very conveniently, with armbian-config, integrated the USB SSD so that it boots from the eMMC. So far so good, I was satisfied with this solution. When I then installed the SATA HAT, the NanoPi didn't want to boot from a current Armbian Ubuntu, nor from an Armbian Stretch, nor from an older version, as long as the eMMC was installed at the same time. Then I installed an SD version of Friendly Core Bionic and repartitioned the eMMC. Then I could boot normally with Armbian_5.75_Nanopim4_Debian_stretch_default_4.4.174 from SD and set up the eMMC first, reboot and without SD, set up the SATA SSD in a second pass. Fiddling with a SMD tweezer to insert or remove the eMMC under the SATA HAT was a bit annoying. But with the RockPi 4 it's even narrower under the cooler.
  5. Something else I noticed when I shut down the system with "sudo shutdown -h now" and forget to unplug the USB C connector, then the system heats up completely. It just happened to me, so I disconnected the plug for 5 seconds and plugged it in again, so that the greeting shows the CPU temperature, 60°C! But I haven't done a test with another kernel version than Debian_stretch_dev_4.20.0 yet, I'm going to sleep now.
  6. Lol, I probably should have tried that one myself. I returned a Corsair Force MP510 240 GB NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD this morning that was delivered on Saturday and a Samsung MZ-V7S250BW SSD 970 EVO Plus 250 GB M.2 NVMe SSD that was delivered today didn't work either. I use Debian_stretch_dev_4.20.0 because otherwise it works better than the Radxa images.
  7. In the FritzBox you can set two different SSIDs for 2.4GHz and 5GHz. I've done this before to force a smartphone to connect to 5GHz.
  8. Let's have 170 years more time and we can manage the EU
  9. I order regularly in China, the USA and in the EU, when comparing prices there are some things to consider.
  10. My mistake, I forgot to write that the SD was ignored and simply booted from eMMC. Parted showed the SD card.
  11. The RockPi does not boot Armbian Stretch from the inserted SD card if an eMMC is installed at the same time. As soon as I remove the eMMC it works. An image of radxa boots even if eMMC is installed. This behavior irritates me a bit, is that normal? Image on the SD card: Armbian_5.73.190128_Rockpi-4b_Debian_stretch_dev_4.20.0 I hope I'm right here if I find something while testing the nightly development branch.
