  1. As I've moved away from apt-pinning since upgrading all my TB boxes to ARMBIAN 5.70 stable Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.19.14-rockchip this thread can be closed. I'll stick with compiling the few packages that I want and need the latest versions of while staying at the stable channel as I've encountered several issues when using apt-pinning or buster/sid deb as kernel panics, lost ethernet connection, logging services failing etc.
  2. Well, it seems that not installing some specific packages from testing deb causes Armbian memory supported logging to fail as installing only the package locales makes it fail. I'm thinking about disabling armbian-ramlog.service as you mentioned, yet I'm not sure the consequences and how it would differentiate from ex. the setup I had with Armbian_5.50_Tinkerboard_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.52. I'll post a full log with armbianmonitor -u in the first post after one more setup.
  3. Hi, I've some issues regarding apt pinning, which I've used for a year now without problems, after doing a clean install to Armbian_5.70_Tinkerboard_Debian_stretch_next_4.19.14. I've figured out that installing only locales from testing (2.28-4) over (2.24-11+deb9u3) kills armbian-ramlog.service as seen below in spoiler 1, which again seems to cause problems for other packages as Nginx. If a do a clean install, add testing sources, apt-pinning and run "sudo apt-get -t testing install locales", armbian-ramlog.service fails. I've tested everything using buster/sid after full apt-get dist-upgrade and it works. So, I've to find out which packages that I need to install in addition to prevent armbian-ramlog.service from failing. So, just pointing out which packages I've to install while using apt pinning to make sure armbian-ramlog.service works is very helpful for me. Running buster/sid instead of stable and apt pinning is not an option, so if apt pinning and Armbian memory supported logging is not possible I would have to compile the latest versions of the packages I want - which I've done before. Stretch backport is neither an option. If you guys think moving to Ubuntu might suit me better, please tell me and I'll try. Spoiler 3 contains the packages locales is dependent on which breaks armbian-ramlog.service. Output from armbianmonitor -u after installing locales from testing deb and rebooting is shown here Thanks in advance!

    Asus Tinkerboard

    Hi! I'm currently on ARMBIAN 5.50 testing Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.14.52-rockchip, which works perfectly. However, if I want to use the latest stable version without using nightly automated builds, are there any ways to accomplish this without downloading the latest image (ex Armbian_5.59_Tinkerboard_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.67) and reinstall everything? Cause using update && upgrade or using armbian config with firmware upgrade doesn't install later versions even if they are possible to download as images (I still have a TB on Armbian_5.41_Tinkerboard_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.23 which doesn't find any newer versions.).

    Asus Tinkerboard

    Hi guys! The Tinkerboard mainline kernel is running extremely smooth and it's months since I had problems regarding my Tinkerboard. So, hats off to everyone who have contributed to make Tinkerboard so stable and reliable! However, there is a minor thing I've been wondering for the last weeks. After normal apt-get upgrade and dist-upgrade, the armbian config version at startup does not change. So, given the code below, it says that Armbian-config 5.45 is installed, yet it show 5.41 which is the version from when I did setup the TB. Am I actually using the latest version? One more thing: On my last setup one of my three external hard drives which I'm mounting on startup with fstab showed up under "Usage of /:" Now no one of the three show up. Which file do I have to modify to make it possible to add more folders to show disk space at the welcome screen? I know that I receive the information running "df -h" to show disk space for different folders, yet it would be better to show it automatically. The following packages will be upgraded: armbian-config 1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 35.2 kB of archives. After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.

    testers wanted Next major upgrade v5.60

    Update: I didn't figure out why I suddenly lost internet connection after upgrading packages so I've reinstalled and everything seems to be fine at the moment using 5.41 stable Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.14.34-rockchip. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hi all! I've been using the nightly build for weeks, however, after upgrading today I'm having problems regarding network connection as I can't connect to the internet most of the time. I'm currently on ARMBIAN 5.42.180413 nightly Debian GNU/Linux buster/sid 4.14.35-rockchip, so I'm using a Tinkerboard which have been quite stable lately running headless. I posted an issue some months ago that I had problems with the network adapter going offline after restarting the router etc, yet, I'm not sure if the problem still exists. I can confirm it after solving this issue. Have there been any changes lately which is related to the network adapter or Network Manger? I would be of more help if it wasn't for the exam period I'm currently facing as I'm a student. So I haven't had time to look more into this. The strange thing about the issues are that sometimes I've connection to the internet, but most of the time I don't. I've configured a VPN tunnel for one user which have worked for months so I can't think why that implementation should affect the other users as it is linked to tun0. I've flushed all rules with "sudo iptables -F" just to be sure the firewall rules wasn't the problem. Here is my /etc/network/interfaces file as seen below: After running "nmcli d" it seems that the eth0 connection is unmanaged. Should the state of eth0 normally say "connected" as it does with tun0? I've tried running "sudo nmcli dev set eth0 managed yes", yet it doesn't change the state of eth0. Response running "sudo ip a show eth0" "nmcli -p g" response: I've tried to run "sudo ifconfig eth0 up", yet eth0 doesn't show running "nmcli connection" Syslog after rebooting - I think the line "Apr 24 13:35:57 <MyHostName> NetworkManager[567]: <info> [1524576957.0193] settings-connection[0x1f88950,<MyUUID>]: write: failure to update connection: writing settings not supported" might tell us what the problem is. After changing /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf to the line below I now at least have a connection running "nmcli d", yet the connection does not last. After some seconds i loose the connection to internet. [ifupdown] managed=true Here is the complete list of all the packages I upgraded today before I lost the connection. Let me know if you require more information to solve the problem. Regards

    Reconnect ethernet interface after disconnection

    Haha, I wished, yet it didn't... We have been playing with the RPi in some courses at the university and I've been sitting on the edge for months hoping for a new version. As that never happened, I started looking for other options and the choice felt on the Tinker Board. The main drawbacks of the Tinker Board is of course the community, yet since I want to learn and develop skills there shouldn't be any issue to fill the software gaps by myself. Which I have by compiling latest software versions right from the source as the versions in the repo are outdated by months... I'm so satisfied as I could get! I wasn't thinking that my Tinker Board was able to transcode huge 1080p files, yet it does and from a hardware point of view, compared to the RPi of course, the Tinker Board is marvelous!
  8. Hello! I've been using Armbian on my newly bought Tinker Board for less than two weeks now and I've to say that the work you guys have put into this is incredible! It truly is remarkable and inspires us newcomers which haven't started studying computer science or are currently studying - as myself. So, I will definitely contribute and help others in the future to increase the Armbian community! However, as I'm new to Unix, Tinker Board, everything that's not Windows or Mac OS, I've a deep learning curve ahead! Let's start with my setup: Build: ARMBIAN 5.32.170921 nightly Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS 4.14.0-rc1-rockchip (I know it's nightly so there are bugs, yet I would like to help to fix them by giving helpful information if needed) My main sudo user is only used to connect to the Tinker Board through ssh and Remote Desktop. The other users have separate tasks, like the vpn user is connected through OpenVPN and runs rTorrent (split tunnel), another user is running Monit, Resilio Sync, Plex Media Server (with Transcoding), NFS File Server and so on. The connection is wired and the main issue occurs when I reboot my router or the power cuts as the Tinker Board won't try to re-establish the connection. All my other devices that are connected through ethernet will, so I assume this is a bug or something I've to configure. The only way to reconnect the Tinker Board is to cut the power as I'm using the Tinker Board as a NAS with no mouse, keyboard and HDMI cable. My syslog has thousands of lines so if there are some specific information you need, please point me in the right direction. Again, thanks for the incredible support and the effort you guys have put into this! I couldn't dream of a better experience with my Tinker Board using Armbian and considering everything I've installed and done so far without facing critical bugs or big problems is almost to good to be true! So keep up the excellent work:)
