  1. @JMCC - testing on rockpro64 with ayufan's bionic here, almost got it .. working on getting the drm_getunqiue patch applied to ayufan's 4.4.167 rock64/rockpro64 kernel now and all should work. This should get kodi-gbm working with rock64 also. sidenote - was also able to install/boot ayufan's kernel on Armbian rockpro64 bionic. It has /dev/mali, etc, and should work there also once this patch is applied. EDIT: new kernel is up with patch applied -- this kernel should work with armbian bionic rockpro64 rk3399 media-script. https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/linux-kernel
  2. Just wanted to confirm that everything is working well with ZFS here on ARM64. Successfully running two MediaRAID 8x eSATA/USB3 enclosures off of a USB3 hub, 16 drives/20TB .. 10+ year old raidz2 pools that has moved between a dozen machines .. VM under Windows, Mac, Linux .. adozen controllers (PMP SATA, eSATA, USB3) survived 7 total drives dying, no data loss. 4GB RAM is plenty for media streaming -- 2.6GB RAM was fine with some tuning (VM in Windows that ran Plex and shared ZFS back to host). Benchmarks eventually .. but downloading with sabnzbd/sonarr, using Chromium, and str
  3. I posted my ZFS solution here- able to compile/use the standard zfs-dkms packages with some modifications:
  4. I have a ZFS solution here that uses dkms/zfs with the standard packages and a few modifications after the initial dkms build fails:
  5. If you use armbian-config, one of the options is 'install kernel headers' -- however this did not match the kernel I had installed in my case (rock64 stretch image) so I ended up adding the beta repo to sources.list and then updating to the latest 4.4.x kernel that also had 4.4.x headers availble. (the newer dev kernel did not work for me)
  6. After fighting with this with a few distros.. I am close here: 1. First, go to your linux-headers directory (e.g. /usr/src/linux-headers-4.4.129-rk3328/) and: make scripts If that fails (classmap.h missing for example), there is a problem with the headers package. You may need to manually edit scripts/Makefile and comment out the line with selinux -- there is a problem with the kernel config not matching the header deb in my case. # subdir-$(CONFIGS_SECURITY_SELINUX) += selinux 2. From the same headers directory, verify that include
  7. If we're looking to test controller capabilities only and eliminate bottlenecks .. maybe someone can expense one of these .. http://techreport.com/review/16255/acard-ans-9010-serial-ata-ram-disk
  8. I think my needs/goals with the ROCK64 or an RK3399 would ultimately fit into this list: - Stability - Fast enough storage to saturate gigabit ethernet/WiFi - Two ports with port multiplier support (prefer SATA/SATA via PCI Express, but two USB 3.0 is ~OK) - Low enough latency to satisfy user experience (large git repo, traversing filesystem normally, general responsiveness) -- i.e. prefer to avoid overhead of USB3-to-SATA and feel this affects the experience more than the raw throughput possible - ZFS -- I have tested a dozen PCI/PCI
  9. Appreciate the responses. Going with the Rock64 for now due to the support available. That N54L looks really interesting. Tuning ARC/cache will help -- I have been successfully dual-booting Windows/Linux with ZFS and arch, using a VM in Windows to access/share ZFS back with good enough performance for my needs (~100MB/sec, Plex server) on a 2.5GB RAM instance after tuning ARC and a few other things, so I think it's going to come down to the stability of the USB3 chipset.

  10. I'm looking for a RK3399/RK3328 for a battery-powered mobile NAS/music player briefcase build. I want 4GB RAM for possibly using ZFS and replacing general home NAS functions. https://www.amazon.com/RK3399-Android-BT4-0-USB3-0-TYPE-C/dp/B071G53B1Z $135 with free shipping for 4GB RAM/32GB eMMC RK3399 model -- seems not a bad deal considering accessories. Powered by 5v 2a but I would replace that with 5v 4a for stability I think. Is there a reason to pay $199 for the Firefly RK3399 4GB model over this? I will be initially testing USB3 with a J
