  1. Enable video out on mainline kernel?

    Had you got any issues with overscan on 3.4 kernel like image cut on the borders-black stripes?
  2. Unsolicited e-mails

    I manage to track where these commands come from... I searched for a part of the command string with this (run from /etc directory): sudo grep -R "run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily" And found out that it was inside a crontab file (called the system wide crontab - more info here ) After some research I managed to stop the annoying emails by writing > /dev/null after every command found in that crontab, and then restart the cron sudo service cron reload
  3. Unsolicited e-mails

    Hello all, I started to receive unsolicited e-mails from my Nanopi NEO and couldn't figure it out what are triggering them. I checked my crontab and there is nothing there. Please if someone knows to clarify this, I would be very grateful, I'm relatively new to linux. My root crontab: 00 02 1 * * sh /home/pi/ 0 6 * * * /sbin/shutdown -r now */5 * * * * python /home/pi/ 2>&1 My user crontab: 0,15,30,45 * * * * sh /home/pi/ &>/dev/null The e-mail is sent everyday at 06:25 +0000 and seems to be activated by this command: test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily ) The content of the (failed) e-mails: The response was: DNS Error: 11584654 DNS type 'mx' lookup of localhost responded with code NXDOMAIN Domain name not found: localhost Final-Recipient: rfc822; postmaster@localhost Action: failed Status: 4.0.0 Diagnostic-Code: smtp; DNS Error: 11584654 DNS type 'mx' lookup of localhost responded with code NXDOMAIN Domain name not found: localhost Last-Attempt-Date: Mon, 25 Sep 2017 23:25:11 -0700 (PDT) ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: root <****private e-mail address*****> To: root Cc: Bcc: Date: Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:25:07 +0000 Subject: Cron <root@nanopineo> test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily ) /etc/cron.daily/log2ram: sending incremental file list ./ auth.log kern.log lastlog mail.log syslog syslog.1 syslog.2.gz syslog.3.gz syslog.4.gz wtmp lightdm/ lightdm/lightdm.log lightdm/lightdm.log.1.gz lightdm/lightdm.log.2.gz unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrades.log sent 20,636,219 bytes received 307 bytes 13,757,684.00 bytes/sec total size is 25,864,247 speedup is 1.25
  4. Hi adrb, I see that you have some experience with SPI LCDs. Can you please tell me if is possible to mirror the framebuffer, similar like fbcp is doing for Raspberry? And here some explanation: Thank you
  5. Hello people, I'm using Armbian 5.30 - kernel 3.4.113 on a Nanopi NEO. and I'm relatively new to this stuff, so please bear with me. I successfully managed to install an LCD screen on SPI (ILI9341) using this command: sudo modprobe fbtft_device custom name=fb_ili9341 gpios=reset:1,dc:201,led:6 speed=16000000 rotate=90 bgr=1 So far so good, but the resolution of the screen is too little and can't load anything - for example Dosbox. I would want to replicate the trick that already exists on Raspberry/Raspbian, and that is to framebuffer a higher res screen (at least 640x480) on the tiny LCD's resolution of 320x240. This is the program that is used for Raspberry, for reference: Can someone please tell me if is possible? Thank you
