  1. well that's probably the problem of that page... It never got the attention it should. the guidlines are missing a few stuff.. e.g. that we refused to give an answer without providing 'armbianmonitor -u' and what the developer forum was ment to be (e.g. nobody ever cared but well.. now all SoCs are considered supported, so at least we can't blaim them for asking stuff anymore.. don't throw the sbc whisperers away.. it described it as best as we can..
  2. not new.. happened before.. in all variants.. IMO you can't really track all of that and you shouldn't even try.. If the community is intact they'll report it for topics of interest.. and for the trash topics nobody reads.. we shouldn't care nor waste time with them... One thing tho to protect the users might be the discord approach.. e.g. if you click on a link it pops a warning as soon as you leave discord showing the whole link in a popup and you've to accept that you leave discord.. It's kinda annoying but on the same side you've been warned and then it's up to you to decide if you trust that page or not..
  3. put 2 wifi dongles in cause xradio 819 on opi zero (if it's the original zero) is prob. the worst onboard wifi you can have prone to hang the kernel with it when it fails (I don't think that everybody ever took an effort to fix that)..
  4. http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/images/5/59/SCH_NanoPi_R2S_V1.0-1912.pdf get pwm2 running and you should be done.. iirc it's not the first friendly arm board having this kind of fan control so there should be information here and there. If it is properly defined in the dt and from a first glance.. It doesn't look like it is that someone is already there long time ago and wrote the pwm fan kernel driver... https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/hwmon/pwm-fan.txt well you might need to pack this into a device tree overlay cause I'm sure not everyone wants an annoying fan on his board. it seems the whole thread is kinda focused on treating symptoms instead of figure out the root case for it. Obviously the board doesn't have much thermal mass due to it's size and I would assume that the USB3 to ethernet phy will also add some additional heat to the system (someone ever checked which other chips 'feel warm' and when - e.g. test if the issue relies when the USB GbE phy gets disabled). Next would IMO then be to test if we have to adjust THS settings for the board or maybe the max frequency we allow it to go (iirc we had this in the past for other boards that we didn't allow them to run at max clock-speeds for various reasons maybe this board is one of them too. I have a neo3 at home somewhere but didn't even boot it up yet (call me lazy). From a first glance the board looks nicely done but I kinda expected it to be a oven.. given the tiny little case I got with it. Maybe I've a look at it this weekend who knows... I have a
  5. Thanks for telling. Much appreciated. @lanefu took care about already. Better stepping back than getting inactive and being kicked well the notification noise gets lower and I hope that I catch then the stuff which might be important better. I prob. missed quite some stuff due to the redicolous amount of notifications for threads to unlock.
  6. so no more hiding for @TonyMac32 btw. didn't have @JMCC also mod rights? and speaking about mods, due to busy times I had to step back from the whole project for quite a while now... Things cleaned up a bit and I might find some time to do arm related linux stuff again but likely not as active as before and so I decided to only focus on stuff I enjoy and I'm interested in. honestly 'customer service' aka user complaining about random stuff doesn't work isn't something I enjoy anymore. So @Igor @Werner and @lanefu (or who ever is in charger for that now) feel free to revoke the mod status.
  7. sd card and PSU issues was once thought to be a subforum where stuff gets moved to once we know it's a psu issue.. to point people at it in case they don't believe their shitty setup is the reason things don't go as expected.. kinda hall of ....
  8. IMO as easy as it is.. as long as we've no proper mainline drivers for the VPU stuff and 4.4 allows us to build debian/ubuntu on top of 4.4 without affecting much. we can stick to it.. I assume rockchip will rebase their BSP on something newer in the future (even their most recent SoCs are integrated into 4.4, e.g rk1808 and rk1806) and I don't think they go EOS prior to 4.4 goes EOL. Btw.. all the camera stuff also is a 4.4 only thing at the moment.. and we've a bunch of boards with doublecam ect. now.. for sure something people might get interested in once it works.. So I guess the way to go is base rockchip64 and rk3399 on the same BSP kernel (this release), base both on the same patchset (maybe this maybe next) base all on upstream u-boot (next release - rochchip64 is based on the bsp u-boot) and then we can merge it.. I guess by compile the mali stuff as modules we might get around having Utgard (rk3328) and Midgard (rk3399) in the same kernel.. and otherwise.. we may just have 2 slightly different configs whatever works here.. Or prioritize rk3399 over rk3328 in terms of mali support (we clearly see that more boards based on rk3399 are developed for those usecases - but let's call this the nuclear option.. :D)... If you feel motivated - go for it. don't let my rants about 4.4 let yourself demotivate.. :D In general I would be a fan if the buildscript allows a quick way to produce debs for custom packages. And I'll still play with 4.4 for a while anyway cause display and cameras on rk3399 are untouched till now.. and it's on my list to play with..
  9. I don't think so.. e.g. to reduce fall out we could first let both use the same kernelsoruces... then patch them until they're even and finally merge but either ditch ayufans or friendlies kernel.. one part which will mess is likely mali drivers but @JMCC knows more about that for sure.. ah and before we forget.. rk3399 boards going upstream u-boot one or the other way would also be nice..
  10. just a short one.. and I didn't read all of it.. working on: rk3399 to 5.6 (more or less done with: https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/1759 but testing needed especially for everything except pbp) display of pinebook pro working with mainline kernel - same PR camera working on 4.4 for pinebook - not even started yet I would love to merge rk3399 and rockchip64 bsp kernels to keep maintenance easier there - let's see if we get the mali mess sorted out there rk1808 into wip - the boards are there.. but time is missing and kernel source will be a pain maybe further cleaning of opi 4b DT
  11. didn'te expect it to work.. but well.. whatever works works..
  12. I would try "video=composite-1:d".. this goes in over u-boot variables, and they tend to mess up stuff.. cause it's then more like extraargs=video=composite-1:d whereas it should be extraargs="video=composite-1:d"..

    likely due to some non mandatory stuff from tobias tree patched in.. usb dp altmode is currently a non issue at all for me, except it floats dmesg. tobias had a few patches for HID stuff in his tree which I didn't patch into cause I didn't expect them to be of importance..

    with the newest pushed to my PR: https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/1759#issuecomment-601162767 dev images with a working display can be built, the display is currently rather dark (I guess we've to tweak the defaults from the pwm driver a bit I had it brighter in mind when using the stock OS).. The mouse is somehow bugged so an external mouse is needed and you need to build with extrawifi=no cause they didn't survive moving dev to 5.6 For those waiting for prebuilt images based on 5.6 this ain't gonna happen yet. it's simply not ready yet to deal with debug and users at the same time. And the PR involves to move pinebook to rk3399 with upstream u-boot but this goes in hand with a change in the bsp kernel (from ayufan to friendly arm) and guess what.. the display does not work there.. but mainline with 5.6-rc6 will work. The PR needs a lot of review tho.. for those wanna see a lot of errors in dmesg http://ix.io/2eGz so to summarize: display works wifi works keyboard works desktop works touchpad doesn't everything else was not tested (ah and restart doesn't work neither atm). PR needs quite some review work and testing for other boards cause.. well we all know what happens when we switch a kernel right?

    Orange pi 4

    http://www.orangepi.org/Orange Pi 4B/ the 4b and the 4 are more or less the same except the 4b USB3 is directly wired to the SPR2801S NPU.
  17. yeah but my quick and dirty patch didn't work.. it gets applied but breaks then in packing.. do you have yours already online?
  18. btw. did you had a look at the packaging script patch? They made quite some changes in it and a quick patch reverting to the 5.3 ended in a fail.

    well even if 5.6 fixes the display.. we've to identify what changed between 5.4 and 5.6 to backport it and get display working in 5.4. As a personal opinion current should stick to a LTS kernel for the sake of maintenance, to keep the workload lower. Fixing all the broken patches with a subversion (e.g. 5.4 to 5.5) bump soaks up a lot energy. So having at least one mainline based kernel which doesn't need that much attention would be nice to keep the stress level at an acceptable level. Additionally we've to deal with the fact that @ayufan took a step back from rockchip kernel maintenance with his fork of rockchips bsp kernel which might not be the biggest deal for rk3399 but newer SoCs (e.g. rk1808 and rk 3308) and boards based on them e.g. SoEdge from pine and RockPi S will be affected by this. In case we officially start to support those I expect quite some work on BSP kernel again.. And the pbp has a camera which nobody ever has attempted to bring up either in mainline or BSP.. It seems developers are fully confident without having a working camera no their notebooks.. On the bright side.. at least rockchip kernelwork won't get boring in the next months..

    well our DT in https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/1759 is based on his DT anyway.. at least with his kernel, our special sauce config did show the display as well.. see https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/1759/commits/a3317c3f665f794e5a8467296ee095898761d78e followed by its revert. So either our special sauce in patches or our mainline kernel which is mainline for rk3399 did not work out properly.. I don't think it's the patches cause I didn't spot something obvious here. So I guess it's the kernel. and yes.. we do add the timings for the display on top of 5.4 https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/1759/commits/d4b5bb9cf41d4b454dbf02d4caa2d453b390937d#diff-309b3186e3060abd0485d767eefb324eR1232-R1290 https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/d4b5bb9cf41d4b454dbf02d4caa2d453b390937d/config/kernel/linux-rockchip64-current.config#L4466 the later as module in the PR... I pushed my 'last' changes in the PR just for the reference.. (https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/1759/commits/a3317c3f665f794e5a8467296ee095898761d78e) gave us the working display with our kernelconfig.

    for the vagrant stuff.. I've no idea, never cared about it.. The board is in WIP and you need to pull from the rk3399_pinebook branch (https://github.com/chwe17/build/tree/rk3399_pinebook). This branch is still some commits behind my local git and roughly 100 behind armbian master.. And it's mostly around mainline with the non working display which drives me nuts.. But maybe I take a shot with 5.5 or 5.6 were things may work.
  23. moved to p2p tech support.. I doubt this board will get any armbian support at all (except you make it happen on your own), there's no reliable reseller to buy them in quantities and therefore it doesn't really fit into rk3399 development.. I wish you the best to get something out of it.
  24. the RCs should be 'somehow' predictable.. e.g. for the linux kernel you know it's monday morning (europe) when the next one drops in how many RCs we have mostly depends on how smooth things go.. so it is possible that the releasedate is not always 100% clear.. I guess it's up to the release maintainer to decide when things are mature enough, but maybe we need a few 'must haves' and a few 'this will delay' defined (means if, it's important enough that it will delay a release).. the images which are finally released should be somehow reproducible.. something like ./compile.sh $RANDOM_FANCY_VARIABLE=release_2002 and it fetches exactly the sources which were used to produce the release (either over the armbian repo/sources) or by commit hash (which can be problematic from time to time, ask @TonyMac32 and the story of rockchip). So that someone who wants to build a 'know working' (in case it was tested for the board in question) image can build and patch on top of the release.. except the commits which alternate the rc numbers in the buildscript rc's should IMO have no commits which are not available in master as well so that after the release we can go 'back to work' without a discussion what we've to cherry pick from the release to work on master, this also means if someone wants to bring up a fancy feature during rc this must imo kept 'on hold' until the release is here.. Otherwise we end in the same mess as we had between master and our 'development' branch and all other attempts to have a 'stable' branch.. for sure stuff I didn't thought about yet..
  25. if upstream means armbian github.. if yes.. done see: https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/3b3d46ca7f1963e04c0ca98e68056ca14a9e94b4 thanks for investigating and sharing.. @Igor can you rebuild and push to download page.. Can't test cause I don't find my board. @Xmoe can you test after its?
