  1. Ok, new problem. Tried to get the linux headers: apt-get install linux-headers-generic It then installed linux-headers-4.4.0-93. Turns out that 4.4.73 is already installed in the Armbian distribution, but it is missing the header files found in /usr/src/linux-headers-4.4.73-mvebu64/arch/arm/include/asm/. A few of these files are used by the arm85 versions, so it prevents building the wireless driver from source. Any know how I can fix this? If we can find the 4.4.73 arm files somewhere, I can copy them into the file system. Hacky, but it will work.
  2. Sure, I'll take a crack at it once I fixed some new stability issues I found. The Edimax card is going down pretty regularly and taking dns with it...
  3. This is a pretty good start! A little cryptic for the uninitiated though. I have a lot of additional tips and settings I could add. I now have a working router with dnsmasq which supports both wireless and ethernet wan connections. I'm able to connect lan0/1 by cable but I have not succeeded in getting a second wireless card to work due to the error -110 issue noted above (very strange that USB 2.0 is fine but USB 3.0 is not, I would have expected the opposite). Right now it seems to be really stable, though I still experience seemingly random issues when I dis/reconnec
  4. It would get a lot more contributions if there was a step-by-step guide to setting up Armbian on the EspressoBin and getting more than just a minimally viable install going. For instance, not being able to upgrade right now due to the different Armada driver is a big deal. Everyone seems to have problems getting the LAN and WAN ports working independently (having both wan and eth0 interfaces is unique to this board, as far as I know). CPUFreq needs to be faster out of the box... defaulting to 200Mhz is crazy. I haven't experienced any overheating at all running at 1000Mhz. The bootup timeout o
  5. I'm using /etc/network/interfaces right now. Got wifi and wan working, but I'm not having any luck getting a connection through lan0 or lan1 to my local PC. This is the output of /var/log/syslog when I plug in the cable: Sep 6 13:44:44 espressobin kernel: [ 830.336999] dsa dsa@0 lan1: Link is Up - 100Mbps/Full - flow control r Sep 6 13:44:44 espressobin kernel: [ 830.341862] br0: port 2(lan1) entered blocking state Sep 6 13:44:44 espressobin kernel: [ 830.341879] br0: port 2(lan1) entered forwarding state Sep 6 13:44:44 espressobin NetworkManager[1494]: <
  6. Ok, I don't recommend that anyone upgrades as it appears that none of the beta drivers are included when upgrading, so you lose core functionality (such as cpufreq support). I'm wiping and reverting back to the original version. The upgrade didn't fix the Edimax problem anyway.
  7. Ok, I've run into one more problem that maybe someone here can comment on. And my apologies in advance because I'm not really a hardware guy so linux kernels are beyond my current skillset. In an effort to get the USB 3.0 port to recognize the Edimax wifi card, I performed an upgrade (apt-get upgrade). Worked fine, supposedly. However, now I cannot boot because the SD card is not recognized. It gets to the end of the boot process and gives me this: Begin: Running /scripts/local-block ... done. Begin: Running /scripts/local-block ... done. Begin: Running /scripts/local-bl
  8. I ran into the same problem while waiting for eth0 with no network cable plugged in. The workaround is to edit /etc/systemd/system/ Change the timeout in the final line to something shorter, like "5sec". __ Regarding the heat test, I shot a laser thermometer at the SOC and get a reading of around 58C. Has been idling at 1000Mhz all day. I'm running into a different problem. I have an Edimax 7811Un wifi adapter plugged into the USB 2.0 port and it works fine. If I plug an identical unit into the USB 3.0 port, I run
