    guidol reacted to Igor in Could armbian (debian flavour) with kernel 4.9.130-2 to 4.9.144-3 get a problem here?   
    Unlikely. It's a problem with their kernel. We don't use Debian kernel - it's way too old, but I will pay attentions to upstream changes in this area.

    As always the question is what you want to do with it
     
    I'm typing this on a Pinebook which is fast enough for what I use it for. My Orange Pi Zero is fast enough for file and network services that I use it for. My RPi Zero is fast enough for running RISC OS. It's all down to your use case.

    ...but who want to use a OrangePi with a OrangePi-image?
    The H6-support of armbian is very limited - so I wouldnt buy a H6-board now
     
    Last year I did buy a NanoPi K1 Plus because the H5 is much better supported.
    The H6 is also "only" a QuadCore A53 like the H5 - so only the newer Mali T720 GFX is the difference.
     
    The OPi 3 H6 would be nice for the price if the complete hardware is supported by armbian

    it depends on the angle you look at it, it shows whether this is the first time or a regular writer in the forum. How the individual takes its measure from this information is up to the individual and shouldn't be censored ((I have to smile while writing that) I know I can look it up in his profile, but I am lazy). Other forums have that too, so we shouldn't hide it, I think.

    guidol reacted to NicoD in Announcement : Odroid N2   
    Hi all. As regular I was looking for news about a new Odroid.
    Finally the news arrived. The N2 will have the Amlogic S922X with 4xA73(@1.8Ghz) + 2xA53(@1.9Ghz), a Mali-G52 GPU and 4GB DDR4 RAM. Looks very promising. It should quite a bit faster than the RK3399's.
    It does have a giant heatsink, so this thing will get very hot I suppose.
    https://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=176&t=33781&p=245930&hilit=n2#p245930
     

    Please let me know what you all think of this. I find it very interesting.
    Greetings, NicoD

    Both pictures show the tree lines, but the Banana Pi may have not used a UTF-8 font in his terminal-window?
    The tree-view is enabled/toggled in htop with the lowercase Key "t" or F5
    If you leave htop with F10 the current view will be saved ( with Ctrl-C it wouldnt saved)
    With the uppercase Key "S" (or F2) you could enter the Setup-Mode of htop

    @Mario Schmidt Dont give up
    The actual 4.20.6 image for the M2 Ultra does boot fine on the M2 Berry and HDMI/WiFi is working (tested console-server).
    But it isnt directly downloadable at this time - you have to compile the image with the armbian-build-system:
    https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/
     
    A  small virtual (or real) Ubuntu-18.04-x64-Mini-Server and some commands and you are up and running for compiling the DEV-image with 4.20.6

    guidol got a reaction from manuti in Pi-Hole Update to v4.2(.1)   
    https://pi-hole.net/2019/02/03/pi-hole-v4-2-available-with-shared-memory-new-blocking-modes-and-more/
     
    v4.2.1 Hotfix
    We have released a small hotfix which addresses possible crashes experienced for users without libcap capabilities
    (running FTLDNS under root). For most users, this update will not change anything.
     
    HIGHLIGHTS
     
    New Blocking Mode
    We’ve added a new blocking mode (NODATA), where blocked requested are replied with a status code of NOERROR
    and A / AAAA records are empty.  
    It’s unclear if there are advantages to this mode over others, but you’re welcome to experiment with it.
     
    Shared Memory
    In preparation of the new API we are working on, FTLDNS will now store its data in a shared-memory space,
    so that the API can come in and read from that memory to fulfill requests.  
    In short, this means FTLDNS will be even lighter as it doesn’t have to care about sending the statistics to some requester.  
    Instead, it will concentrate on generating the statistics and the API can read FTL’s data directly,
    resulting in reduced delays in the API.
     
    wpad Vulnerability Fix
    We previously mentioned how you could work around a vulnerability regarding wpad entries.  
    This fix is now in place as suggested by dnsmaq.conf.example.
     
    Fixes And Tweaks
    We updated SQLite to 3.26.0
    We fixed the query status if a forwarded query was partially replied to from the cache
    We now prevent multiple static DHCP entries with same IP
    And more…
     
    Docker Version Also Updated
    We heard your feedback and we made sure to coordinate better to release our traditional install and our Docker install together.
    The docker image will be released when testing is complete.

    Hi Guidol ...
     
    I have been doing a loooot of things as the ones you are describing for years by now.  However, things are becoming more complex and the solutions are not so crystal clear anymore.
     
    When working them with the OPI-Zero, latest Armbian version (no problem in legacy ones), to remove the network managers resulted in so unstable environment that I was forced to reinstall the OS.  And ... as Armbian is oriented to NetworkManager, I preferred to learn how to work it.
     
    About the R2, what happens is that it is a "work in progress" unsupported device.  So you have no guarantees about what could happen if you break something.  Also, it is more complex that other machines because it has an exotic networking equipment... in those cases, when it works it is better not to try strange things on it unless it is laboratory hardware (I have other machines for that).
     
    The specified instructions work for standard Ubuntu on a very regular machine, but not necessarily will work perfectly in a constrained SBC computer where the OS has been fine-tuned to perform well.
     
    ---
    I would prefer if Armbian let me "choose" what networking method I like to use, and in an orderly way disables all other ones.  However, I understand that such thing would involve a lot of work and it is not a priority.

    little "dumb" idea:
    if the part outside the linuxfilesystem is damaged, the non-armbian-image will work because of the vfat partition which is "covering" the error.
    years ago I had a old hdd which has bad sectors in the first 1GB.
    after adding a 1GB partition ad the start of the hdd and using the rest as the second partition the os could be installed and used from the second partition.
    Maybe @rmoriz could use the other partition style for armbian when tranfering armbian manually to emmc.
