    thanks for the post nico! well, with rk3399 across team we will.make some severe changes on this armbian build. we will move to xfce abd rebrand the build as TwisterOS armbian. the idea would be to start with RK3399, then S922x, not only N2 bc they are competitors arising and also bc you know I don't like N2. cheers!

    NanoPi Neo3 could now ordered - but not with a metalic case. Dont know how it will heat up in there
    And with this cas you couldnt use the 2 additional 2 USB 2.0 ports or fan-support.... which is available on the pin headers...

    manuti reacted to AnonymousPi in How to enable RDP (xrdp) with Armbian so you can login from a Windows PC   
    Update, for whatever reason this is broken in Armbian focal, and the issue appears to be due to an Armbian shell script that xrdp doesn't like, so after doing the install, you also need to then do:
    sudo mv /etc/profile.d/ /etc/profile.d/armbian-check-first-login.old And volia, you'll actually get a desktop when you RDP from windows.

    manuti reacted to legogris in Focal vs Buster?   
    It's not a case of arm64 not being as well-supported. In general most modern software has way better support on arm64 than armf. If you're on a 64-bit processor, you can choose. HC2 will simply not do arm64 since it's a 32-bit processor.
    You can use either distro. I'd personally vouch for buster, or even bullseye. debian's testing is generally relatively stable in this phase of the lifecycle, and buster has old versions with known issues of some packages by now.

    For those boxes is really a jungle !!
    Those Chinese tend to grab the first avaible cheap chip and put inside so a big variety of possibilities.
    @Jock contacted me and maybe now is the moment to " put hands " in this sluttish driver.
    @Ztrawberry the driver for ssv6051 doesn't suit sv 6x5x this is the problem and that project for a universal image is a nice idea but me and jock and other clever programmers  ( the same man  that bring libreelec to life on those boards @knaerzche ) own so many different boards that  has been reached great maturity  on rk 322x . Mostly bugs are well known ( ssv6x5x among others) and still working on them
    Of course support , ideas and suggestions are highly appreciated

    manuti reacted to jernej in Hardware Graphic/Video Acceleration in H3 Mainline   
    Well, kernel modification is needed for better decoding (less glitches). Probably new *-ctrl.h files contain new fields (not 100% sure) which also need to be filled.
    There is no any post processing implemented here like scaling. It would be possible to do that via SoC specific peripherals but that wouldn't be universal and thus it's out of scope of this library.
    Anyway, I'm glad you succeeded.

    Download, unpack and burn the ArmbianTV image to your SD card.
    Connect to the TV box and turn on the power. The system will start automatically.

    manuti reacted to tkaiser in Nanopi R2S overheating and throttling   
    Are you kidding? Again: 
    There's no problem with the RK3328, this is just another boring Quad-Core A53 in 28nm (just like the H6). So the question remains what's wrong with NanoPi R2S and not the RK SoCs.
    And I really don't understand why so many blindly trust in numbers. There's a thermal sensor inside the SoC, there's a reference voltage, there's some calibration needed, there's driver code. The idea that the numbers this driver spits out are somewhat or even closely related to the actual temperature of the SoC in question is just a hope!
    Care to remember what you yourself already reported?

    Checked the transition from Bionic to Focal with the command (do-release-upgrade). The system was updated from the beginning to Eoan and then upgraded to Focal. Please note that this is a potentially dangerous procedure and you must first save all your valuable data.

    manuti reacted to guidol in [Info] compiling/running z80pack imsaisim/altairsim on armbian Desktop   
    If you know the movie "Wargames" then you may know the computer of "David Lightman" a IMSAI 8080
    Udo Munk did create the software z80pack (last version from 2017 v1.36 at )
    which does include
    - IMSAI 8080
    - Altair
    - Cromemco Z1
    - cpmsim
    Against the text based cpmsim emulation the other features a graphical frontpanel with "blinken lights"
    Yesterday I did try to compile/start my favourite IMSAI 8080.
    I did follow the instructions - which I collect and wrote for me - see attached to this message.
    But yesterdy I only got limited success (after many "bad" compiles with missing dependencies) in starting the IMSAI 8080 emulation.
    I did get the graphical frontend *yeah* - but after POWERON/RUN the computer I didnt get any terminal-output
    After MANY retries I did give up  
    Today I did the same compile-session on a PC with Ubuntu MATE 20.04LTS and it did work in the first try  
    At first I got no idea what wasnt working....but then I discovered that - when moving the graphical frontpanel - the terminal-output was written VERY SLOWLY to the terminal-screen *Aha*
    Because the garphical frontpanel seem to work perfectly (and did also compile very well) I searched inside the directorys of imsaisim and found in the "conf"-directory the file system.conf
    There in system.conf is a line where the FPS-rate of the frontpanel as default is configured to 60 FPS (Frames per second).
    While taking a look at htop the NanoPi A64 (where my armbian buster Desktop does run) the cpu-utilization is near 90%
    So my gut instinct did tell me thats to much and the NanoPi has to much work with the frontpanel than writing to the terminal.
    I changed the framerate in
    - for the IMSAI 8080: ~/z80pack-1.36/imsaisim/conf/systemconf
    - for the Altair: ~/z80pack-1.36/altairsim/conf/systemconf
    - for the Cromemco Z1: ~/z80pack-1.36/cromemcosim/conf/systemconf
    # front panel framerate fp_fps 10 After that change all 3 emulators with graphical frontend did startup and give output on the terminal
    I contacted Udo Munk via email about this topic and he already knew it
    He wrote that he had implemented the FPS option, because some lower-spec systems had problems to achieve the power for producing a framerate of 60 FPS for the frontpanel.
    Here my write-up / documentation how I did compile /  successfully start the IMSAI 8080 emulation:
    (many thanks to John Kennedy from the FB-Group Altair 8800 for double-checking my instructions!)

    To upgrade from the old core, you need to restore the original firmware and go through all the steps for a clean installation. Or perform all the steps manually (do not wait for a detailed step-by-step guide for the manual option, you will have to solve everything yourself on the spot).

    I guess it is more a new installation than an update what you want..because I have just p281 devices with s905w chip I can only write how I proceed on these devices, but as s905x and s905w are quite similar, that should work for you too: Burn image on card, configure that dtb is working for your hardware in uenv.txt"Complete copy OS to eMMC "
    If new system runs good from sd card, just boot from it, open a terminal and type:
    sudo /root/ after few minutes the script should have copied(/usr/ takes a while..) the stuff to eMMC and prompt:"Complete copy OS to eMMC "
    If that fails to reboot 20.05.5 image from internal after that, maybe try in terminal on boot from card to copy (again):
    sudo /root/ ..but for me on 5+ amlogic p281/p212 devices works perfect..
