  1. The 5Gbps Security Engine of the Espressoin is not CESA compatible. It needs a specific driver implemented by Bootlin in kernel 4.16:
  2. Have a look at this article.
  3. @Igor is working on it ... (my installation responds as expected): # apt-get install armbian-config Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done armbian-config is already the newest version (5.45). Edit: did you see this ? You can install it from there: https://github.com/armbian/config
  4. apt-get install armbian-config
  5. Your root device is not mounted. Did you flash the latest u-boot ? After that you need to set the environment settings as explained on the EspressoBin download page.
  6. Nobody wants you to operate your board with 600_600 - it is just a test. If your setup runs stable under these conditions you can exclude any issues in Armbian. The vendor should then accept this as an argument and replace your board or provide you with another u-boot flash image that allows you to operate your EspressoBin with 1200/750 MHz (which they obviously can't do). I do not have to say anything more about this.
  7. The values in /etc/default/cpufrequtils are correct in this scenario. But you have flashed 1000_800. Is this setup running stable now ? If not use the 800_800 or 600_600 u-boot flash images for your board and adapt the values in /etc/default/cpufrequtils accordingly.
  8. Your 2Gig EspressoBin has two RAM chips (they can be seen on the top left in the first image and on the top right in the second image) - so you need the 2g-2cs firmware. edit: you need to adapt min and max values in /etc/default/cpufrequtils to frequency steps displayed by cpufreq-info and to reboot
  9. Why don't you let us know what happens if you flash the 600_600 firmware to your board ?
  10. That is your 'hardware solution' for a hardware issue of your board :-)) . You could have replaced it by the vendor (or used lower CPU/DDR frequencies). I have five 1Gig EspressoBins (V5_0_1) around and they are all working flawlessly (with all available frequency combinations including 1200/750 MHz) - in particular with the current firmware and mainline 4.14.40. They are used to host my most important data for months now. note: the latest mainline kernel that includes the crypto drivers (> 4.16.y) is NOT marked stable yet on the EspressoBin; any potential DDR timing issues were resolved with the firmware update in March this year by the introduction of calibration/tuning cycles during boot.
  11. RMA your device. The EspressoBin download page tells you what you need to put into u-boot...
  12. @Igor has pushed a new message on Twitter related to EspressoBin: EspressoBin firmware images were updated to: u-boot-2017.03 release armada-17.10.3 A3700_utils release armada-17.10.5 atf-v1.3 release armada-17.10.8 (see log) and updated stable Stretch, Xenial and preview Bionic images are available.
  13. Debian server - mainline kernel - make sure you are on the stable branch and update your system with 'apt-get update && apt-get upgrade'.
  14. You should use armbian-config to switch to next-stable - you system is outdated.
  15. If your EspressoBin is older than a few months it has two RAM chips - one on each side opposite to each other. Recent 1GB models have only one chip at the bottom.
