  1. The following issue may have already been reported, so apologies if it has. Fresh install of both desktop 18.04 and Stretch next (Armbian_5.59_Tinkerboard_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.67) on the Tinkerboard Ethernet comes up but does not connect without manual intervention., on the desktop I had to login and connect manually, with the "server" edition I had to modify the interfaces file to get an address. Intentional or a bug?

    WE NEED !YOUR! HELP

    Not sure what I'm looking for, I've not even noticed any difference. I'm sure there is, but I can't see it. And this is a good thing! I originally did it on my Orange Pi Zero & didn't notice ANYTHING different so did it on my PC and couldn't notice it there either! Update: OK I've found the change to zram on the PC but not the Zero, even after an update! Orange Pi Zero -> http://ix.io/1dIO [Updated] http://ix.io/1dJ3 Orange Pi PC -> http://ix.io/1dIA /me has no idea what to look for. I hope this helps though!
  3. Thanks for the heads up, I shall keep using "next" then & watch this thread
  4. Are you able to paste what command/script you're using? I'll happily give it a run on my TB.
  5. I've just installed your debs on stretch, ran into a minor hiccup, but otherwise it seems to run fine - log http://ix.io/F88 HTH
  6. Just thought I'd chime in here and say mine has been running fine headless on next/mainline - log http://ix.io/F6V. But why anyone would want to use (channeling my inner tkaiser here) crusty 4.4 is beyond me, well.. unless the feature is missing from mainline. I'm more than happy to try 4.4 though if it would help!
  7. Exactly, I saw the board(s) and thought, why?! What does this do better than any Orange Pi H*?
  8. Just thought I'd pop in and report that on my zero running the nightly stretch, the temp seems to have gone down a hell of a lot (when idle). It used to get quite toasty (58c+) idle but now it's much better & this is with the xradio enabled (I had it off before)! Well done guys!
  9. It already has an obvious answer. Remove it and release when good and ready! I'm sure people would rather have a well tested and stable release! Keep up the good work!
  10. Just thought I'd pop in to say my tinkerboard has been powering a C.H.I.P and an FM transmitter (500a) for 20 days+ now without much issue. I'm just about to reflash it with Debian :).
  11. I had a similar problem, thought it was my network, but re-ran the compile after deleting the cache (It needed doing anyway), that seemed to fix it. . Wasn't sure whether to report it or not, so thanks @tkaiser!
  12. Update: I'm happy to report that my tinkerboard and northpada power supply - are still alive and in one piece (including the cables/connectors, yes I checked) - after being continually under load for almost three days. The board (under a GPIO connected fan) and psu got warm, but not hot to touch at any point, the microusb connection on the board, never once got warm. BUT: @tkaiser is right - even if the manner he goes about it is less than tactful - the board should be powered by GPIO. But in my case, headless usage with only a few devices connected, I don't foresee any issues. So if you plan on powering by the microusb connector (which isn't recommended ) it should be okay with a decent PSU, well in my case it is, but YMMV.
  13. Thanks, I've checked all listed.. Again, you're telling me something I already know! I agree. No luck, I just didn't go for the cheapest adapter available! you are a real lovely person. Schadenfreude isn't a nice trait to have, but whatever floats your boat.
  14. @Igor I'm already aware of the limits of microUSB Adding "Is this clear?" really wasn't needed, makes you sound stressed . And, yes I've already read those posts . This board without anything attached consumes (at peaks) more power that it's possible to deliver via microUSB connector. Well, this NorthPada adapter must be certainly able to handle it as It hasn't once crashed for the past few weeks, I've left it alone for 5 days (without a reboot) & went to check it was still up, uptime said 5 + days, so no reboot had occurred. I crashed it myself using stress trying use more RAM than allowed (just to see if I could) . --- Please bare in mind I'm only testing whether this adapter is able to keep the board alive with some devices & so far it has, I'm not expecting it to be able to power a dozen devices and the board without some issues, that would be stupid.
