    Myron reacted to tparys in How do I turn on networking using bash commands if I've accidentally disabled networking within the GUI shell?   
    Took a quick look on my system doing that.
     
    Doing "systemctl status", I don't see any obvious services that were started or stopped.
     
    You might learn more reading up on the options in the NetworkManager command line tool:
     
    $ man nmcli  
    Or check with the XFCE guys over at https://forum.xfce.org/ what exactly that network widget does.

    Myron got a reaction from Elric in No screen on HDMI with bananapip pro and armbian buster   
    I should have paid attention to what I did, but when the USB to TTL serial adapter arrived I promptly connected that and got the initial console and set-up which allows me to login as root and 1234, to then change the password and ask all the usual initial set-up questions.  Once I got past all of that then everything magically started working, including the HDMI port.  Without using the USB to TTL RS232 card on the debug port on the BananaPro, the SoC board appeared to be dead.  It was not.  I've got it working now.  [Just need to create an image back-up of the MicroSD card.

    Myron got a reaction from guidol in The LED1 and LED2 on the BanabaPi Pro. How do I get them to show MMC card usage and the watchdog heart beat?   
    Thank-you everyone. I would mark multiple solutions, but the board only allows me to mark one.

    I got it working. Used the cron @reboot method on user root.  The LEDs are useful where on the screen it may look like it's got stuck, the LEDs will at least show if there is some activity and if the SOC is still got a heartbeat.  I'm still a noob on the higher technical issues of Linux.  I have one more question to ask and that will be in another thread.    (Yes, I will donate!  I've seen the donate link on the Armbian home page, but as you all know, the budget that keeps the roof over the head, electricity supplied, food on the table, etc... is priority. Shall donate what I can, when I can.)
     
    EDIT: I finally ended up using the /etc/rc.local method.  Thank-you @Werner and @guidol.

    I usually do the noob way finding the trigger files for LEDs
    code { font-family: Consolas,"courier new"; color: crimson; background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2); padding: 2px; font-size: 105%; } du -a /sys | grep led | grep trigger
     
    I don't know what trigger is needed for mmc but heartbeat is self-explaining. code { font-family: Consolas,"courier new"; color: crimson; background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2); padding: 2px; font-size: 105%; } echo heartbeat > trigger

    Pssst ... If you cat the trigger file, it'll tell you the valid options, and which one is currently selected.

    I'd wager the correct trigger is "mmc0", unless there's a both a SD card and eMMC slot on that board?

    on my BananaPi M1 I can only control the green LED, but for that usage I do use the following command-line:
    echo 'mmc0' > /sys/class/leds/bananapi:green:usr/trigger only green LED available: # ls -l /sys/class/leds/ lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Sep 11 22:11 bananapi:green:usr -> ./../devices/platform/leds/leds/bananapi:green:usr

    Myron reacted to Igor in Ambian fails before the first hurdle. Refuses to boot on Banana Pro SOC board.   
    FAT partition is not needed, perhaps only for amateur usage. So that people who have Windows, can access this part and change thing. While most of them have no knowledge what to do with those files, so it is pretty irrelevant. FAT partition is there because all those distro tries to mimic Raspberry Pi, while cheap mainstream toy is not our amusement to follow. Raspberry Pi can't boot from anything else due its proprietary construction ...
     
    Armbian controls this hardware with a very different modern hardware interface, written from scratch, from the moment you plug the power. There is no relationship with the demo level software you are mention as a working ones. Those were made just to present hardware functions and abandoned right after then. Many years ago. I am sure you don't want to use those and I highly recommend you to stay away from those other (fake) distros.
     
    Also make sure to read this.
     

    We need to know:

    - exact version of boot loader (u-boot) very early print
    - armbianmonitor -u (if you have network operational)
    - cat cat /etc/armbian-release 
    - do you have monitor attached and what kind of
    - how do you power the board
     
    Helping you is our expense. You can also try asking for support at Lemaker, but I am 100% sure nobody will answer to you. Not at any distro you are mentioning.
