    Post your Speed Tests

    Chwe: same here. FTTH symmetric gigabit, but apparently capped at 20 Mbps for overseas links. Fortunately, that excludes everything in CDN's, so it still feels crazy-fast.
  2. PFsense does, just not the community version. I guess I'll give up and do it the hard way. Armbian + iptables @sfx2000Thanks for the tip.
  3. Thanks, I didn't realize it had finally come available. Looks like it's not an option, as it's for a v7 board w/emmc, and the image isn't available without buying their hardware package. I do wish pfSense had said upfront that it would not be available without the hardware. There's literally no reason for them to have stated that they were working on a port and try to appropriate the espressobin userbase when it would be only sold as yet another proprietary box. I feel a bit shafted when he did say things like:
  4. Assuming he has a publically routable IP address. I've been bitten by ever-increasing amounts of people wondering why dynamic dns doesn't work when they're (unknowingly) behind NAT. @sunarowicz : if you're having connection problems, check the first two octets of your wan connection against the list of reserved private IP spaces.
  5. I think you have two different technologies confused. Pi-Hole works by acting as a DNS server, and simply redirecting any DNS requests for sites on it's blocking lists with blank/null/innocuous content. This can be located anywhere inside your network that is reachable by your other devices, and, as it only handles the DNS requests, does not require a lot of processing or network capacity. I'd recommend a wired device, but yes, a pi zero with an ethernet dongle would handle the traffic for an average home network admirably. Something with built-in ethernet would obviously be better from a reliability standpoint (eg. nanoPi neo, orangePi zero, etc) What I think you're looking for is more than ad-blocking, but an actual stateful firewall with packet inspection. For that you'd need to go with beefier hardware. Personally, I'm still waiting on a pfSense release for the espressobin for that, but what kind of hardware specs you need will depend on your network throughput and traffic.

    Installation of Wireguard

    Sorry, I did it on a Armbian/Ubuntu on Nanopi Neo 2, so your specifics will vary. Hopefully the following will still work: First, you're going to need the kernel headers, so (for my specific version/device): apt install linux-headers-4.14.70-sunxi64 In my case, this brings in headers for *every* arch, and the current wireguard install doesn't like this, so: cd /usr/src/linux-headers-4.14.70-sunxi64/ mkdir unusedArch cd arch sudo mv * ../unusedArch/ cd ../unusedArch/ mv arm64/* ../arch/ add-apt-repository ppa:wireguard/wireguard apt update apt install wireguard wireguard-tools wireguard-dkms Hope it helps.

    Is Mali GPU driver available in Mainline for H3?

    I remember reading the history of the Lima project a while ago, and it basically comes down to that ARM doesn't WANT an open-source implementation of the graphics drivers, as they make a not-insignificant amount of money licensing theirs.

    libre computer same as orange pis?

    If you check the download page under "Libre Computer", you'll see that Armbian has builds for 4 of their current models Le Potato is a supported board Tritium H3 & H5 are suitable for testing Renegade is a "community support" board. The link you provided by default points to the new La Frite board, who just recently finished it's kickstarter and nobody actually has yet. For the most part you'll find the boards are roughly comparable to their Orange Pi and FriendlyArm analogues of the same processor / memory.

    Helios4 Support

    Thanks for catching this so quickly, Igor. I was mid-update when it gave me a 404 on that file.

    error installing multics for pc+

    Looks like you're trying to run an x86 binary on an arm cpu.
  11. Umm.. the Helios4 kits (full or just the board) come with all the necessary cables. SATA power, SATA data and AC adapter. The only thing you need to source yourself is the drives.
  12. The major difference between those three images is: Stretch : modern 4.x (14? 17?) kernel, based on Debian Bionic: modern 4.x (14? 17?) kernel, based on Ubuntu Xenial: legacy 3.4 kernel, based on Ubuntu The modern kernels are generally pretty-close-to-mainline linux, thanks to the hard work of the guys in the linux-sunxi group. Since not everything has been reverse-engineered, it doesn't (yet) support all the device features. h3consumption will not work with the modern kernels, so is not included The legacy kernel is based off a vendor-provided kernel that has been cleaned up and had a few dozen (hundred) security patches on top of it. It's based of the now end-of-life 3.4.y kernel tree that was initially released in 2012 and was marked end-of-life in 2016 following the final 3.4.113 update All the hardware should work with these kernels, but the anything that relies on a modern kernel (eg. btrfs) won't work, and you'll be missing the last 2 years of security/stability updates.

    Emmc not detecting

    Looks like a currently known / in progress issue. Forum search is your friend.

    failure rate of SBC boards

    Have about a dozen boards for various things, only had two board failures (both nanopi neos, oddly enough).
  15. You're right, it's back in the week-20 update.
