    I am now using: ARMBIAN 5.67 user-built Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS 4.19.7-aml-s9xxx I am still trying to install a Realtek driver (Realtek 8812AU/8821AU USB WiFi driver) I have downloaded and unzipped the files from the source like this: ### Compiling for Ubuntu (16.04) Download archive into temp directory ```sh # mkdir -p /tmp/t4u # cd /tmp/t4u # wget https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux/archive/master.zip ``` Unzip ```sh # unzip master.zip # cd rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-master ``` Compile and install from source ```sh # make # sudo make install ``` Load module ```sh # sudo modprobe -a rtl8812au this FAILS at the make step with this error: root@aml:/tmp/t4u/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-master# make make ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/4.19.7-aml-s9xxx/build M=/tmp/t4u/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-master modules make[1]: *** /lib/modules/4.19.7-aml-s9xxx/build: No such file or directory.

    Hi Tido Thanks for the reply. yes, I am aware that the Kernel I was using is old. The fact of the matter is that I loaded the newest Kernel and tried to enable the onboard Realtek wi-fi adapter u8sing the modprobe wifi_dummy procedure. Of course that failed which is what prompted me to make this post. I am sure someone has already done this so instead of going on a long search which may take days... and not sure that would work. If someone can post a code link on how to do this, it would be useful to many. Thanks again for your great posts! Eddy_T

    So any idea on how to make the Wi-Fi work?

    Hello everyone Just installed the latest Armbian_5.67_Aml-s9xxx_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.19.7_20181218.img on my T-95N and was ready to go at it! I am running into a strange behaviour when running: root@aml:~# modprobe wifi_dummy and I get this error: FATAL: Module wifi_dummy not found in directory /lib/modules/4.19.7-aml-s9xxx it is strange because this used to work wonders before I loaded this image? Any help would be appreciated! Best of this holiday season.

    Le Potato - writing armbian to eMMC

    I followed balbes instructions and successfully copied the system from my USB drive to the eMMC. Removed the drive and rebooted and all started well and the system was up. I then edited fstab to add a line for automounting a usb HD (which worked well when running on the flash drive). I also did modeprobe wifi_dummy and found the names of the modules which I added to the modules file. Now when I rebooted the system, it went into emergency mode. Here are some questions for those who have tried this: Here are some important questions: 1- is it not possible to edit fstab once the system is running from FLASH? 2- How to automatically run the modprobe wifi_dummy command so that the wifi works on bootup? 3- is it possible to run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade while running from NAND? 4- can the swap partition be moved to the external USB disk drive? 5- is there an easy way to let the system install all new software (like lamp) on the USB drive Thanks again! At least i am still alive.. hardly breathing though

    After installing to FLAS as per balbes150 instructions, all went well and the system booted fine from NAND I then edited the fstab file to automount a usb hard disk at boot. (Note: this worked fine when running from a USB stick). The line that i added is UUID=device UUID /Folder path /external ntfs rw,nosuid,nodev,default_permissions 0 0 I then rebooted the system and after hanging up on a line, it got to the 'emergency' mode. Here is a screenshot. Any idea what to do about this? Thank you!

    Can you please be more specific?

    Its working. I feel so bad about this. The problem was two-fold: 1- For some strange reason, data was not being written to the sd card so all the trying was useless.. Its a strange Windows 10 issue. The sd card shows fine in Windows Explorer but then I noticed that when i remove the sd card, windows explorer still thinks that it is inserted. Go figure! 3- I made the manual multiboot changes, copied the gxl_p212_1g.dtb file over renamed it to dtb.img, rebooted and now it is running. I will now read more posts and learn how to make the box boot from the EMMC. It is best for what I need to do. If someone has spent the time and knows how to, that too will be appreciated. Its now just after 5 am and my mind is at ease.. maybe I can get some sleep before going to work (real work and not play) at 7:00 am! Good morning to all!

    Here are some steps which I have already tried: 1- I downloaded Armbian_5.41_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_server_20180225.img.xz, unzipped it and burnt it to my SD card 2- I rebooted my TV box with the sd card in and holding the seset button 3- The Amlogic S905X logo came up. I went to eat dinner 4- Came back 1 hour later and the screen remained frozen on the same logo. 5- I powered the unit off, inserted the SD card into my pc and copied the file gxl_p212_1g.dtb to the sd root directory, renamed it to dtb.img and repeated the hard reset. Still the same behaviour. 6- I started the Android box without the sd card in it, went to the backup/upgrade app, asked it to upgrade from sd card and to use the file aml_autoscript.zip and no change. it just boots and stays on the Amlogic logo. Any idea what's going on? Thanks

  15. Hello to all I am trying my best to install Armbian ubuntu server on the above described Android TV box and cannot succeed. has some one been able to make this work? Any hints would be greatly appreciated!
