    First at all, I'm running in an unsupported Android TV, Sunvell R69 with ARMBIAN 5.67 user-built and kernel 4.14.81.


    the question is, after running some exported X application launched from remote CLI, I find an entry for every launched app in the file system:

    ~ $ df -h 
    Filesystem	Size	Used	Avail	Use%	Mounted	on 
    overlaid	1.2G	20K		1.2G	1%		/run/user/1000/firefox-esr
    overlaid	1.2G	20K		1.2G	1%		/run/user/1000/epyphani
    overlaid	1.2G	20K		1.2G	1%		/run/user/1000/chromium
    overlaid	1.2G	20K		1.2G	1%		/run/user/1000/vivaldi

    I can umount all,  but all entries reappear after reboot the system without launching the apps.

  2. NTFS is not a good idea with Raspberry Pi. I have many issues related to file permissions and overload the system. If you can switch to a native Linux file system, like ext4 or btrfs, you can achive better results and performance.

    Also, I kindly recommend using  OSMC as Kodi better than OpenElec.


    Y si eres de Málaga que haces preguntando tan lejos pudiendo preguntar en un sitio perita como mi blog!!!

    I did try many boots (I know it could hang) with a 8GB and a 16GB SanDisk Card.


    Is pretty old ... but this week I give a second chance to my Sunvell R69 and with new kernel from here

    Armbian images for R69 on Google Drive.


     and never boot on Sandisk microSD card ... but works really perfect with Toshiba Exceria 16GB white color

    So @guidol maybe trying a different brand or micrSD cards works.

    My current tv is 1920x1080, I don't plan to change it until it breaks (but I doubt it will last many years, it's 8 years old already).



    Luca cómprate un MXQ cualquiera por ejemplo y tendrás triple boot sin problemas gracias a las imágenes de @balbes150 


    Luca buy some MXQ for example and you will have triple boot without problems thanks to the images of @balbes150
    The triple boot works like this: you modify the Android TV boot so that it checks the SD slot, the USB and finally the internal eMMC. Once this is done, if you turn on the computer with an SD or USB with the image of Armbian prepared by @balbes150 will be the partition that boots and from it you can choose Kodi or Linux Desktop, and if you do not place the SD then starts the Android serial.

  5. The NanoPi K1 Plus:


    [  ] armbian good support - not yet

    [x] 2+GB ram - yes

    [x] fast cpu - yes and 64bits

    [x] Gigabit Ethernet - yes

    [x] eMMC support could be nice for fast OS - yes

    [x] it will run headless - yes 

    [  ]- docker support - yes when armbiam come

    [  ]- USB 3 support could be nice, otherwise USB 2 is ok - USB2.0



  6. This is my Spanish guide to add Mate Dsktop to the Raspberry Pi

    But if you start with any armbian Debian Server you can try this simple steps:


    sudo apt install mate-desktop --no-install-recommends mate-desktop-environment-core mate-themes mate-session-manager xinit mate-terminal mate-applets pluma software-properties-gtk xserver-xorg mate-utils mate-utils-common

    Now create a text file with nano

    nano .xinitrc

    in your home directory containing this:

    exec mate-session

    And finally add a desktop launcher as you prefer (only one of this) :

    sudo apt install nodm


    sudo apt install lightdm
