  1. I've not tried on those but I'm sure Armbian runs on it. I run Armbian on lower spec Intel SoC's and it runs well. Armbian is perfect for headless work. Everything is configured for it. For me the advantage is to have the same OS on all my devices. If anyone wants 32-bit OS then go for Debian. They still support 32-bit.
  2. That is a mainline (edge) image. Support for that isn't there yet. Use Vendor kernel if you want support. Mainline is a work in progress.
  3. The speed of an sd-card is very dependent on the device used to read it. Most cheap tv-boxes have 20MB/s max. Some can do 70MB/s. I've not seen any go higher than that. Highest I've seen on an SBC is 90MB/s. But the cards are theoretically able to do more. I just don't have a reader supporting it. An eMMC is normally about 150MB/s to 350MB/s. Even the small 16GB eMMC will be faster than the best 256GB sd card. Just do read write benchmarks on both and make up your own conclusions.
  4. Hi all. Here my review of the Orange Pi 5 Plus with Armbian Jammy. I show tips for better desktop experience, show how to build your own images, how to run games, and tons of info about the board. Here's the video : For those who rather read, here's my gathered data : https://docs.lane-fu.com/s/5IxGlf4gn Greetings, NicoD
  5. To my knowledge Armbian has no support for the NPU side of things. Only (some) vendor Khadas images have this with example code. It all doesn't work as I'd like to see it, no compatibility with known standards. In my opinion the NPU is kind of useless. And Khadas isn't a big help here. Maybe LibreComputers has better implementation for it...
  6. I know this is the same on other Rockchip devices. Not sure what the cause is. Might be interference. I use usb audio adapter or hdmi-audio on all my boards. Never the on-board audio jack because it was a problem long ago with other boards. Even RPi used to have terrible sound on audio jack if I remember well.
  7. It doesn't have pd, only 5V. I hope your powered hub didn't send anything higher. Try a 5V PSU instead.
  8. Seems it is. I created a bug report for this. Thank you all the valuable info.
  9. He needed to use Jammy and not bookworm. The desktop choice has nothing to do with it. The AmazingFate repo only works on Jammy. That is what JashuaRiek is using too.
  10. What display are you using? And bit weird that it would work from sd and not from eMMC. I tested on sd-card only. Can you try Jammy to see if it also has this behaviour?
  11. Now I can confirm the issue. I also have a Philips 4K monitor and nothing shows on it. I tried first with my 13" 1080p display. Weird problem. I wonder if it is the same with other SBCs like N2+ and if it's the display resolution or something with brand/type display? I'll see if I can find out more tomorrow.
  12. @Sander de LeeuwI'm unable to recreate this issue. It boots right into the desktop as it should. Tried "Armbian_23.8.1_Khadas-vim3_bookworm_current_6.1.50_cinnamon_desktop.oowow" Not sure what would cause this for you.
  13. That's a weird issue. I tested the latest images, but not sure if I tried an x11 desktop. I'll try the images you mentioned on my VIM3 and see what happens.
  14. Try Kodi and see if that works. I use MPV for most, but some files it doesn't play well. sudo apt install kodi
  15. I would advice to try with gnome (ubuntu-desktop) That uses wayland, so might give another result(better or not...). Also be sure to install the gpu and vpu drivers as mentioned on the download page(only Armbian Jammy)
