  1. Ok I'll try again at the end of the week.
  2. Hmmm.... Still nothing. I tried another monitor but it's still blank.
  3. I'm sorry I meant 5.41 from
  4. Using 5.41 I ran armbian-config to install armbian on a tinker board s emmc. Install went ok but get nothing but a black screen on boot. Any ideas on what to do to get it going?

    Tinker Board mainline Wifi Stability

    We dealt with this problem for quite a long time. It started out on tinkeros which prompted us to try armbian... which didn't work any better. I worked with an asus engineer who determined that the disconnects were because of network-manager scanning for a better connection. While the problem is likely not network-manager itself and rather how the drivers handle it, there are a few work arounds. Asus suggested setting the bssid which we tried and it did not help. There is also a patched version of network-manager called network-manager-noscan which supposedly fixed this problem. I never tried it. We switched to wpa_supplicant and have 100% success staying connected. We don't want the end users messing with the network-manager settings anyway which show up in the task manager by default. Read the section in the link below titled "Regular network disconnects, latency and lost packets (WiFi)"
  7. All of our tinkers are rock solid after removing network-manager and going with wpa_supplicant. Today I apt update/upgrade and it brought network-manager back which killed our connectivity. When I apt remove network-manager it also is removing armbian-config which I don't want to happen. armbian@term1:~$ sudo apt-mark hold network-manager network-manager set on hold. armbian@term1:~$ sudo apt install armbian-config Reading package lists...

    Simply remove network-manager and use wpa_supplicant. I have close to 60 tinkers now and zero drops using wpa_supplicant.

    le Potato and emmc connector

    No I didn't buy it with the potato. I just assumed emmc was standard like an sd card.
  10. I bought a le Potato and an emmc module. The module fits fine on my odroid. The le Potato has the same connector gender as the emmc module however and cannot be connected. Do emmc modules come sometimes with male and sometimes female connectors?

    no 4k resolution

    armbian-config -> system and security settings -> switch to alternative kernels

    no 4k resolution

    Nevermind I got it. Yeah that makes 4k work.

    How do I go about getting the proper kernel?

    no 4k resolution

    I thought 4.14.34-rockchip meant I was using the rockchip kernel

    no 4k resolution

    I connected a tinker to a 4k tv and the highest resolution that armbian offers is 1920x1080. What could be the reason that 4k res is not offered? I'm using ARMBIAN 5.43.180417 nightly Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS 4.14.34-rockchip.
