  1. Hello, As far as I read, there are not many (<100$) arm64 board to run linux armbian, kodi, maybe plex, capable of playing without issues 4k videos. I think if I'd like to make tvbox the best choice in terms of video quality would be using android, right? Thing is I hate android, I love linux. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is there any good board around 50-80 $ to make a linux tv box? I'd just use it as an HTPC for playing video with a 4k tv attached to it and maybe some simple home media server. Thank you
  2. Just for info: 4.19 with Xenial is working fine on my Banana PI M1 (ARMBIAN 5.73 stable Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS 4.19.20-sunxi)
  3. I don't have a console terminal attached to the banana, so I can't check (it's not in my place, I only have ssh access to it). But If I ssh into the banana and then from the banana ssh to another server i see UTF htop, so I agree, it's just configuration. If I echo $LANG I get it_IT.UTF-8 in my desktop and en_US in the banana anyway somehow I solved the issue. After trying to reconfigure my locales there was a C.UTF-8 that was not selected in the list and that I previously ignored. But only selecting that as default locale everything kinda fixed. googling: C.utf8 = POSIX standards-compliant locale, extended to allow the basic use of UTF-8. No character upper-lower case relationships and collation orders defined beyond ASCII. Don't know if my EN.US.utf8 is corrupted, nothing happens if I try to regenerate it. I'll just stick with the C.utf8 (which works fine) still I was not able to understand the nature of the problem.... Thanks evrybody
  4. I don't use putty , connecting from a linux ssh client. Anyway, this is may armbian-config and this my locale # locale LANG=en_US LANGUAGE= LC_CTYPE="en_US" LC_NUMERIC=it_IT.UTF-8 LC_TIME=it_IT.UTF-8 LC_COLLATE="en_US" LC_MONETARY=it_IT.UTF-8 LC_MESSAGES=en_US.UTF-8 LC_PAPER=it_IT.UTF-8 LC_NAME=it_IT.UTF-8 LC_ADDRESS=it_IT.UTF-8 LC_TELEPHONE=it_IT.UTF-8 LC_MEASUREMENT=it_IT.UTF-8 LC_IDENTIFICATION=it_IT.UTF-8 LC_ALL= It is already correctly configured with UTF-8. *** The problem is further being it an headless server, maybe in Zurich /ot *** I do: *** My version is the one that comes with armbian and I'd prefer to find the nature of the problem, instead. Also the banana htop version is newer then the desktop version, but seems older in ascii view. But if I have no other options I will change version. *** I found this github issue regarding a lib problem in compiling the software. Maybe it is compiled with --disable-unicode opt? Anyway, do any other users has this view in their htop with armbian or just my own has this ascii view?
  5. That's the point! How can I revert it to use UTF-8 fonts so that it looks like the other screenshot?
  6. Hello, I don't know if this is board related or probably armbian related... anyway. In my old banana pi (4.19.13-sunxi) htop (version 2.1.1) is like this: While on every other linux PC, server or whatever I have it looks like: The small and stupid difference is in those blue "tree view" lines (under the Command column), which I don't really like nor understand. Is there a way to set those lines as they normally should be? (and why was it set???) Thanks
  7. Thank you, what I don't understand is where does this 500MB of zram space come from? It is not a chip on the board as of producer's specs It should not be part of the 1GB ram, since if I swapoff I can see the "Swp bar" (zram) dropping to 0 and filling the "Mem bar" with the missing MegaBytes. So where does it come from???
  8. I can't figure it out... is zram written to disk like swap or is it written to ram memory?
  9. Hi on my Banana PI I have set no swapfile/partition since I never gonna use swapspace ram is gonna be enough. When I reboot I always find 499MB of swap swapon -s Filename Type Size Used Priority /dev/zram1 partition 255728 67052 5 /dev/zram2 partition 255728 66836 5 But I can find no entry of /dev/zram1 nor /dev/zram2 in /etc/fstab. Can anybody explain me how is this possibile? And how to manage those partitions? I found another /dev/zram0 which I think has to deal with log2ram since it is mounted on /var/log, is this correct? Thanks
  10. I'm interested in this, can you be more specific? What are the options to adjust smb performance?
  11. Hello everybody, When I go apt update with my Banana PI ( it hangs on (since days!). Other apts work. Err:8 xenial InRelease Could not connect to (, connection timed out Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done All packages are up to date. W: Failed to fetch Could not connect to (, connection timed out W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead. Is the apt mirror down? Should I change it? Is there another mirror we can use? Thanks

  13. Sorry for double posting. More info: Installation with curl -sSL | sh seems to be ok, but I get this error message when i run hello-world: standard_init_linux.go:178: exec user process caused "exec format error" This is my system: ARMBIAN 5.25 stable Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS 4.9.12-sunxi
  14. Hello, I've just switched from bananian to armbian (as many others here as I've seen), and successfully finished migrating everything. I use the Banana as a little home server, NAS, sane/cups printer sharer and home cloud. I want to use docker on it, but I'm finding some difficulties to make it run. I'm currently on 4.9.12-sunxi. I've tried installing docker from the ubuntu repo but it doesn't seem to work. I've seen some topics about building a custom kernel for this, is this necessary? Did someone managed to make docker run? Thanks.
