    guidol got a reaction from Werner in [Short Info] Pihole on unsupported OS   
    It seems that the actual install routine of Pihole doenst detect buster with kernel 5.8 correctly.
    At "my" normal install command "curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash" I did get
    [✗] Unsupported OS detected: Armbian 20.08.0-trunk Buster https://docs.pi-hole.net/main/prerequesites/#supported-operating-systems e.g: If you are seeing this message on a fresh install, you can run: 'curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | PIHOLE_SKIP_OS_CHECK=true sudo -E bash' If you are seeing this message after having run pihole -up: 'PIHOLE_SKIP_OS_CHECK=true sudo -E pihole -r' (In this case, your previous run of pihole -up will have already updated the local repository) but after giving (as written above) the install command with the option "to not check the OS"
    curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | PIHOLE_SKIP_OS_CHECK=true sudo -E bash
    the installation went fine

    guidol reacted to P.P.A. in Allwinner H5 phased out?   
    Xunlong is putting out another batch of H5 devices at the end of the month.
    Is there any particular reason to go with a H5 board these days? As I understand it, the advantage it has over the H3 are the gigabit ethernet and the 64-bit architecture, while being a bit more mature on mainline and Armbian than the H6 or similar Rockchips?

    To enable I2S is easy. See this thread:
    Have you tried the search function up on the right side?
    You can do it on your Orange Pi PC Plus the same way Guido did it on Nanopi Neo.

    Beta repository with latest armbian trunk:
    - support for N2+
    - sunxi/sunxi64 DEV kernel 5.8.y, most of others stays at 5.7.y.
    Images will also be rebuild, but update should bring the same experience.

    just lately I searched the forum about it.
    There was a PR that fixed the bigger trouble we had.
    However, I guess this automatic feature was built in in good faith, but I guess the script should ask/support the user like: You seem to live in TR, do want to set this as ur locale?
    And if the user says no, give him the standard ncurser  selector.
    What do u think  @igor?

    @guidol thank you for your reply. You have one of the first versions.In the past I ran many images
    meant for this board and they booted fine from sd , so it beats me why balbes150 images won't run
    on my device but do run on yours! I'm certain the first test image from Balbes boots ,because their are
    files written on sd , but thier is no hdmi output .Now I want to try to connect via a
    direct cable connection between two machines ,either with an ethernet cable or a usb cable .

    often the focal image does boot and show the text-boot-log, but then the screen goes blank with no signal/desktop
    had this after apt update & upgrade  
    sometime the desktop does appear, but will blank out after some seconds  
    The Raxda Rock is available via SSH/ping

    Sometimes it seems to work if I move the mouse (no screensaver).
    Via armbian-config I have now restricted the CPU to 1008Mhz/ondemand - and this time the Desktop starts.
    Normally I only got problems with over 1008Mhz with Allwinner H2/H3 Systems, because they dont got a proper power-switching for the CPU.

    But after a time I do get a LXDE(?) Desktop on my HDMI-Monitor  
    Eth0 isnt working (also with a proper /etc/network/interfaces) so I connected a USB-Ethernet-Dongle and did get a eth2

    Now it booted again and I had to enable eth2 as root with

    Major Updates
    1. The install.sh script now installs the debian backports version of smartmontools which doesn't depend on Python 2 and is a much newer version. This also sped up the install process a bit.
    2. Added single disk support OS/Data
    3. Updated the update system, dashboard now shows the latest version, when you choose updates it ill now show the changes between the installed version and the current.
    4. We added Rescan disks button to add volume in setup as well as add volume in the main web ui app.
    5. The system no longer reboots after setup it now directs you directly to the login screen.

    Hi @guidol We figured it out, it had nothing to do with the networking but how it created volumes when using other devices other than HDDS like USB Sticks and mmc memory it would not detect them properly since we were using smartctl to scan for storage devices, now we have used a much better approach using lsblk to list all block devices. I noticed because of the screenshot at the top you sent me had garbled info under select disk. Please give SimpNAS one more shot of testing when you get time. Your testing is helping the project tremendously and we appreciate you!!

    Just my perosonal cents:
    I got some NanoPis from FriendlyARM with Allwinner-Chips like H2+, H3 , H5 and A64 and they do work alll very well and since years 24/7 - but I got some Rockchip devices from other companys and they are the "black sheeps" of my SBCs - so Iam do not buy Rockchip-devices anymore.
    So when try to buy Allwinner devices from FriendlyARM - but isnt that easy anymore without new H5-devices and no real successor in the near future
