  1. Is it possible to have two operating systems on a SD card with provision to select the OS at bootup (e.g Grub), or selecting OS for next bootup at shutdown ? Rein.

    net speed

    I have recently updated to Armbian Focal (Ubuntu 20.04). My Banana Pi M1 is running an apache server + some digital amateur radio stuff. So upload speed is important. My average download and upload speed as measured with speediest-cli is 45Mb/sec and 18Mb/sec respectively (wired connection to modem) With Focal I get these speeds with Buster (Debian 10) the download speed is still 45Mb/sec but the upload speed drops to 3.4 Mb/sec. These results are not one off but consistent. The am64 version of Buster does exactly the same thing.. My question is : can I change this with programmi

  7. Hi, I have a problem with an update notification that seems to be permanent. The following lines always appear when I log onto my system: Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.36 user-built Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 4.13.16-sunxi System load: 0.71 0.63 0.62 Up time: 1 day Local users: 2 Memory usage: 29 % of 995MB IP: CPU temp: 42°C Usage of /: 60% of 15G [ 0 security updates available, 2 updates total: apt upgrade ] Last check: 2017-11-26 00:0012 After sudo apt-get
  8. Previously I was running 'lubuntu' which did not have this problem. I am only interested in being able to plug in a USB key and read or transfer the contents. I normally use ftp to transfer files.
  9. The files I am dealing with are basic microsoft files .One of the hd is formatted for my mac system but can be read by another linux box i am using . I have internet connection because my banana pi with jessie runs my web site and is permanently on line. Output of fdisk -l with 2 hard drives connected to try out what's going on: Disk /dev/ram0: 4 MiB, 4194304 bytes, 8192 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes Disk /dev/ram1: 4 MiB, 4194304 bytes
  10. Hi Igor, Output of ‘armbianmoniyor -u': /var/log/armhwinfo.log has been uploaded to gzip: /var/log/armhwinfo.log.1.gz: unexpected end of file curl: (56) Recv failure: Connection reset by peer Please post the URL in the Armbian forum where you've been asked for. I have tried to untar this file to no avail. It is not just USB keys that can't be read. I've tried external hard drives formatted for HTFS and HFS+ They show up in fdisk -l as /dev/sda or /dev/sdb but do not appear in /media
  11. Maybe a discussed problem. Using Armbian Jessie on Banana Pi M1. Using USB keyboard and Mouse. Can use usb wifi adapter but presently unused. Power supply standard PS for Banana Pi normal output from lsusb and lsusb -t But it won't read files from usb key. Why ? can you help?
  12. Thank you, martinayotta, I'll try this today ! As I understand it I still have to make an imagefile of the full 16Gb before I can shrink it to below 4Gb. Maybe you can confirm this?
  13. Hi, I am running Armbian Jessie (4.11.6-sunxi) on Banana Pi M1. For reading and writing SD cards I use linux dd cmd on another box. I do not have a Windows system. My question is this: My SD card is a 16Gb device. With gparted I can reduce the size of the system to a partition that would easily fit on a 4Gb device. But when writing the .img file dd will still see and write an image of 16 Gb There must be a way to make an image that can be written to and booted from a smaller device to save resources on the backup disk. Can anyone point me in the right direction ?
  14. Is an OS compiled for Banana Pi M1 compatible with BPi M2 ? I would like an answer to this question before I try it out. Anyone tried it? thanks.
