guidol reacted to Igor in Bug GUI Armbian on Pinebook
Yeah, that's it. IMO something is wrong with / around LCD driver. I suspect this - Pine only sells Pinephone, which is the very similar hw, just in different form factor and by upstreaming LCD on Pinephone they break support for Pinebook somehow ... Since we already lost several afternoons trying to fix this it is unlikely to repeat that anytime soon. Not possible
guidol got a reaction from Igor in [Q] NanoPi Neo2 doenst boot anymore (complete) because of longer UUID
@Igorstrange - got near the same problem this evening with a nanoPi K1 Plus
(after updating to pihole FTL 5.5.1 and reboot = https://pi-hole.net/2021/01/19/pi-hole-ftl-v5-5-released-update-today#page-content )
The NPI K1 Plus is searching a shorter UUID than shown as blkid
The Boot-Error does show
So I did put the card of the NPI K1 Plus in my Neo2 (IP24) and monuted it on /mnt/sdb1
But with blkid and in /etc/fstab and /boot/armbianEnv.txt I ons could find the long UUID:
boot-err 971c3757-23ee-42 blkid 971c3757-23ee-4281-b0cb-989e7255e3d9 fstab 971c3757-23ee-4281-b0cb-989e7255e3d9 armbianEnv 971c3757-23ee-4281-b0cb-989e7255e3d9
Everthing seems OK - so because the Neo2 had the problem in /etc/fstab I deleted (the correct one) and replaced it with (in my sight) the same text and did put back the card in the NPI K1 Plus and it worked again ?? just fine Dont know what happend - while booting- the 4 times before I removed the card...
This is the second time this month with a different device...

Thank you - you save others I didn't spot this problem ... fixed. I guess I'll need to expand my test rig with a few more boards.
guidol reacted to klbmnbdd in [Info] How to compile the actual 64Bit version of stockfish chess engine
Thank you for providing these valuable infos.
I successfully installed picochess with the current Stockfish 12 engine and the 3-4-5-men syzygy endgame tables on a 64 GB eMMC chip with Ubuntu 20.04.
Now I can use my Odroid C2 with a DGT Smartboard in conjunction with a DGT 3000 chessclock.
guidol got a reaction from lanefu in CLI forced variants
@jeyjey For supported SBCs the easiest way to get minimal or server-only images of armbian is to setup a own armbian-buil-system
on a 64bit Ubuntu or a VM:
with the armbian-build-system you will have a menu driven selection if you want to create a image for the type minimal, server or desktop
you can select between ubuntu and debian flavour of armbian and the version of ubuntu or debian...as long your SBC is supported by armbian.
guidol reacted to Igor in How does armbian have dts files that mainline linux doesn't?
Because mainline kernel is a RAW generic material which we use, make certain (actually quite a lot of - we deal with base development) changes, add certain boards to it and distribute. Integration and acceptance to mainline kernel takes a lot of time and many things are never accepted / integrated. While they can be a part of Armbian for weeks, months, years. It's our burden of maintaining and advantage at the same time. The same goes for u-boot.
All changes are public and you can study them in the following folders:

Today I compiled kernel 5.10.0 (no rc) for the NanoPi Neo2 and now it works agan with my Neo2 and Ubuntu focal where it did work before only with debian buster but also with 5.10.0 rc2 - rc7
The sambsa-server from focal also work with the final 5.10.0 without problems

guidol reacted to jernej in OrangePi Zero2 - Allwinner H616
I just updated that branch, now it can boot normally from SD card.
You'll also need TF-A and Linux to make it usable:
UART, ethernet and SD card already work, so it already works good enough for headless server...
guidol reacted to Igor in Armbian Donations
It's a gaming case. Has all requirements such as leds in the bottom , green led Razor logo in the front, glass window and RGB leds on the cooling cap ... but it is fu* 1cm too small to mount a radiator inside the case. I could mount it outside but its not screwed with all screws . Cooling performance is awesome at this point.
Ignore messy cabling - will be done at the end.
guidol reacted to j___r in Kernel education needed
Thanks for your response and explanation.
I performed the backup and upgraded the kernel to 4.14.202 and it has gone smoothly.
And, Tailscale is back to it's happy self again.
I really enjoy these little devices too, so I will continue to try and learn more and more about them and Linux but sometimes it seems bottomless.
I appreciate the efforts of the contributors.

i think it could be a generic a20 problem - maybe have a look at:

Wow, that was a very helpful answer, thanks a lot!!
With that info I can just blacklist that modules (anyway, I'm not interested in using the ADC functionality of the A20 :P) and now the system shows proper low cpu usage:

guidol reacted to 5kft in Orange Pi R1 IPSec freezing Problem with large amounts of traffic / e.g. iperf3
I'm not an expert in this area whatsoever, but this problem looks like an upstream kernel issue, and perhaps is related to this fallback deadlock fix? https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/herbert/cryptodev-2.6.git/commit/?id=a2715fbdc6fc387e85211df917a4778761ec693d
The posted fix patch is only applicable to kernel v5.10; just in case you want to give it a try, I've uploaded a ToT test build of v5.10-rc3 with this kernel patch applied: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Eg_cn3bEYsRFZ3vrP9Mc0fxJjPREczcW/view. Again, I'm not sure if this will fix the problem, but there are a number of changes in cryptodev here compared to kernel v5.9, so it might be worth a try.
guidol reacted to Ford_Prefect in Orange Pi R1 IPSec freezing Problem with large amounts of traffic / e.g. iperf3
Thanks for your work,
I tested your kernel packages yesterday and everything works flawlessly now. I get about 40 to 50 MBps throughput with Ipsec now without stalling and "breaking" the Interface.
I am happy, thanks alot!
guidol reacted to DwayneDib in Bug GUI Armbian on Pinebook
Was looking for a place to post a solution to this issue, but you guys have got there before me.As others have described, booting a (my) Pinebook with the latest version of Armbian (tried both Bionic and Buster) results in a blank screen seconds after boot.This is even after booting to multi-user.target when there should be no graphical display manager running.I got the latest kernel/version available for 19 and tried that (Kernel 5.4.62) and that worked.Previously I'd tried doing a full firmware upgrade, disabling the lightdm.service, setting the boot target to multi.user/3 and disabling the autologin (in case that had something to do with it) but under the 5.8 I got the blank screen each time.Not complaining here - just wanted to confirm I'd had the same issue.Love Armbian and all the great work that's being done - peace to all.
Manjaro ARM also does the same thing, by the way, so it's not just an Armbian issue
guidol reacted to Levent Erenler in Pine64+ A64 Kernel 5.9.x analog sound problem
Platform : Kernel 5.9.5 Pine64+ A64 buster server
Analog sound working ! After a few days, i figure out the analog sound problem. There is a widget property in sound definition at sun50i-a64-pine64.dts file. This mainly specifies audio off-codec DAPM widgets (Dynamic Audio Power Management for Portable Devices according to devicetree/bindings/sound/widgets.txt) In my case this widgets disable analog sound and i couldnt find a way to enable it I remove widget line and linked routing properties from dts file and rebuild it and it works. If you dont want to rebuild armbian alternate way is using a custom overlay. Dont forget to unmute HeadPhone with "m" key and increase AIF1 DA0. I hope it will help to someone. Unfortunately i could not enable microphone input, any ideas?? Thanks
