    martinayotte reacted to Werner in Rename Supporter to Donator   
    Since - in my eyes - at least - there is a likelihood of confusion regarding the "Supporter" tag of members that actually (recurring) donating to the project. People could think "Supporter" means staff member that actually support people with their issues. The real staff rank, Moderator and Administrator to say, is "hidden" in their individual profiles. Since I like the idea of flat hierarchy I do not suggest to make the actual staff visible in forum postings but simply rename the Supporter to something like "Donator" to make it clear that these people donated to the project but are not necessarly involved into it.

    The U-Boot is located after the partition table but before the first partition. So, when you grabbed the U-Boot from Armbian image, and when you start the extract at byte # 0, it is also grabbing the partition table followed by U-Boot itself. U-Boot location is at byte #8192, so the extract should be done like that :
    dd if=ambian.img of=u-boot-only.img bs=1024 skip=8 count=1024 This will extract a 1MB image, big enough since native Armbian U-Boot is sized about 620KB ...
    Then, you can place it inside Balbes image without touching it own partition table by doing a "seek" :
    dd if=u-boot-only.img of=balbes-image.img bs=1024 seek=8 conv=notrunc That should do the job without scrapping Balbes original partition table ...

    I've started the work of switching SUNXI-DEV to 5.6.y, as usual, few DT duplicates and fixes ...
    But I've faced also a big change related to 'file_operations' been changed to 'proc_ops' in all places over the kernel, which cause that all our EXTRAWIFI needs to be fixed.
    I hope to get it done by the end of this evening ...

    martinayotte got a reaction from JMCC in using the RTC connector Nanopi R1.   
    Although the battery connector allows to keep the RTC running while board is powered off, there is no PMIC to control power of the board from some kind of WakeUp Alarm.

    martinayotte got a reaction from TRS-80 in Armbian_20.02.0-rc1_Odroidxu4_buster_current_5.4.11_minimal.img does not boot   
    This occurs usually when /etc/ssh/ssh_host* key files are corrupted from some reasons (bad SDCard, etc) ...
    To recover them, you need the Serial Debug, then you can delete those corrupted files and recreate them using "dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server".
    ... Or, take a new SDCard, write again the image, and retry the process ...

    Take this overlay source and save it as "gpio-keys.dts" :

    git-work/dtc/dtc -@ -I dts -O dtb -o /boot/dtb/overlay/sun8i-h3-gpio-keys.dtbo gpio-keys.dts Then, add this overlay either in /boot/armbianEnv.txt with "overlays=gpio-keys" or by loading it dynamically using :

    Beware that even if you trigger event from GPIO to execute "halt" command using a "gpio-key" node in DT, the OPiZero will still be connected to PSU since there is no PMIC to really turn off the power...
