    Proper cooling system of TV boxes.

    And the noise (some comments say it's loud, some say it's quiet )

    Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x (>= ver 5.55)

    Instead of the two backticks you can use $(), i.e. instead of `uname -r' you can use $(uname -r)

    Old Armbian builds for Orange Pi PC

    I'm using armbian 5.73 (actually I reached that after various apt-get upgrade, I started with whatever image was available at the time), xenial, legacy kernel and I have no network problems, ssh or otherwise, (though I'm using exclusively wired ethernet).

    Installation in Mecool KI Pro

    I didn't open the box (yet ), I'm happy enough with libreelec, though I'd like a real linux system to tinker with, but consider that I have less and less time to tinker

    Installation in Mecool KI Pro

    Is it this one? https://github.com/150balbes/Amlogic_s905-kernel/blob/master/arch/arm64/boot/dts/amlogic/meson-gxl-s905d-ki-pro.dts if so it seems it just adds the dvb hardware to meson-gxl-s905d-p230 and that didn't work when I tried it, so I doubt it will work but I'd be delighted to be proven wrong.

    the dtb you mention are only available for kernel 3.14, they won't work for any later kernel

    Installation in Mecool KI Pro

    Because there is no dtb that works for the KI pro. The dtb for 3.14 cannot be used since the format changed.

    Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x (>= ver 5.55)

    @erbas I didn't pursue this further. I'm currently running libreelec but with kernel 3.14, as it seems nobody has a working dtb for newer kernels and I'm not able to write one. With libreelec the dvb driver more or less works but worse than under android (with android I can tune both dvb-s/s2 muxes as well as dvb-t, with libreelec I have more difficulty tuning some dvb-s/s2 muxes and cannot tune dvb-t at all). Perhaps later I'll try armbian again on this box, but for the time being libreelec it is.
  9. Just found this thread that explains the problem and the possible solutions
  10. Do you think that blocking the update of systemd will solve the problem?
  11. Being hit by this issue today (though I'm not sure since other network services are starting normally and I don't have currently access to a console), I wonder why systemd is being offered as an upgrade if it's going to cause this problem.

    Which Wifi Adapter?

    I'm using this one: https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au/tree/v5.1.5 (other branches gave poorer performance). I think I tried various repositories before settling on this one.

    Which Wifi Adapter?

    I have a stick based on that chipset. I'm not using it with armbian (so the chosen driver there may be better) but it's not without issues: since it's not been mainlined (yet?) on a desktop (kubuntu) distribution you have to chase a driver (there are several variations, some of them working better than others) and even when you find the "correct" one there are still issues: sometimes I have to unplug and re-plug the stick to get a connection, sometimes, when it doesn't connect, it gets really hot. When it works it works fine though.

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X (ver 5.44 =<)

    @balbes150 do you know why such a simple module doesn't work (and messes up the kernel so badly that afterwards lsmod hangs forever)? A mismatch between the compiler used to compile the kernel and the one installed with armbian perhaps? If so, what compiler should I use to compile the module?

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X (ver 5.44 =<)

    I also tried to take the configuration of the running kernel from /proc/config.gz (which is different from the one contained in the deb) with the same result
