  1. The sdcard in my Helios4 got corrupted on a recent upgrade, and I'm a few versions behind so I decided to get the latest (Armbian 20.08), write it to the card and move stuff over as needed. Unfortunately, I found that due to a combination of factors, that networking is totally bunged up due to a choice that doesn't make a lot of sense for something that is generally supposed to be a server in a static place. I was trying to use NetworkManager to set a static IP, and went through a guide out there to do that since it's not something I do every day. I get to "nmcli con re
  2. Thank you for the info. I'll figure out how to compile it myself for now. I look forward to future updates including it.
  3. I just received and set up my Helios4. I set it up with Buster and it seems to be working OK. One thing that seems to be missing is the ch341 usb serial driver. I have this attached to an old APC UPS that has a serial port and a USB serial cable that uses the HL-340 serial chip. I was unable to find the driver in /lib/modules. Will I need to compile the driver myself or am I missing a package? If it wasn't included intentionally, is there a technical reason not to include the driver for this kernel?
  4. I was hoping I could find some information as to why linux-jessie-root-next-bananapipro was being held on my BPi Pro system. The kernel and u-boot packages have been upgraded. I've held back on updating linux-jessie-root-next-bananapipro because I'm concerned it would break something. Is there some log file I should look at or some documentation somewhere?
  5. I've got a BPi Pro with a PMP as a sort of backup box. It appears to be running find so far and I'm not running RAID of any sort on it as I've had issues with that an PMPs on other platforms. The question I have is dmesg is filling up with entries like this: [66451.217935] sdb: sdb1 [66752.272509] sdb: sdb1 [66752.593223] sdd: sdd1 [67964.907826] sdc: sdc1 [67974.038562] sdd: sdd1 [68595.107245] sdb: sdb1 [69525.179964] sdb: sdb1 [69835.958729] sdd: sdd1 [70766.572499] sdb: sdb1 [71076.828494] sdb: sdb1 [71377.605195] sdd: sd
  6. I'm running an OrangePi One. Having installed Armbian a while ago and gone through all the updates, I was wondering if there is any way to determine what equivalent release my installations are at. I noticed that 5.20 is out and some folks are talking about 5.21. I'm running Jessie. Also, for me to use a more recent version of Debian, I'm guessing I would have to build the image myself? Is that due to shortcomings in the 4.x kernels on the H3 platform? I've done some digging and it seems like many (most) things are working right on the 4.x kernels? Thank you James
  7. So, specifically USB -> SATA bridges with a SATA device attached. Not just any USB storage like flash. Also I read "it must not even have a partition table or filesystem readable by Linux." to mean that it must be a blank disk with no partition table whatsoever.
  8. I was hoping to test out Armbian, but I keep running into issues. Following the directions on the main page, I write the .raw to my sdcard and insert it into the OrangePi One. I'm using the Armbian_5.03_Orangepione_Debian_jessie_3.4.110.raw version. I got similar results with the 5.01 version. I've got the serial console working, but I don't get any output after the U-Boot: MKernel image @ 0x48000000 [ 0x000000 - 0x49a658 ] Using machid 0x1029 from environment Starting kernel ...
