  1. Just do sudo apt update again, and maybe again until it's fine. There seem to be problems with all distro's. Not only armbian. I often need to do it 3 times before it's ok.
  2. 5.83 is not a recent Armbian. You didn't give any details of what board you're using. If possible use a recent image.
  3. So you've got an sd-card with armbian which worked? Does it still boot Armbian from the SD-card? Orange Pi installs chinese android on the eMMC. Maybe you never did boot from it, but it probably is there. Why it would go inthere after a shutdown I don't know. Try booting without sd-card. If Armbian still boots fine from sd-card you could install Armbian on the eMMC. It's faster than sd-card. But it's probably a small size.
  4. What board do you have? You give very little useful information. You probably have android installed on your eMMC.
  5. You can find it on the wiki page. They use their own order. Seems every maker uses other uart pinout/voltage. I think Putty should work. Be sure it's set to serial.
  6. Hi all. I've made a new video about how to build your own Armbian image with the Armbian build script. I also show how to set up virtualbox with a Ubuntu 18.04 image. Here's the video. Greetings, NicoD
  7. He my video about what's new on the Rock Pi 4, and mainline Armbian + Panfrost
  8. Panfrost instructions Armbian This tutorial explains how to build an Armbian image with panfrost. And what else you need to make it work. These are early drivers. Many things don't work yet. Only OpenGL 2.1 works now. You need to build an image with kernel 5.2 or later. For this you need an x86 pc with Ubuntu 18.04 or a virtual Ubuntu 18.04 x86 image. First install git, then clone the build folder from Armbian, and enter the build directory. apt-get -y -qq install git git clone --depth 1 cd build Now run the script with EXPERT=yes so you can choose to build a dev image. sudo ./compile EXPERT=yes Choose "Full OS image for flashing" Then "Show a kernel configuration menu before compilation" Choose your board. If it's not in the regular list, look in "Show SCS/WIP/EOS/TVB". Choose Development version kernel configuration -> device drivers -> graphic drivers -> panfrost Let it run until it's finished. The image will be in the /build/output/images Burn it to an SD-card/eMMC/... Now we need to install all the needed software sudo apt install flex bison python3-mako libwayland-egl-backend-dev libxcb-dri3-dev libxcb-dri2-0-dev libxcb-glx0-dev libx11-xcb-dev libxcb-present-dev libxcb-sync-dev libxxf86vm-dev libxshmfence-dev libxrandr-dev libwayland-dev libxdamage-dev libxext-dev libxfixes-dev x11proto-dri2-dev x11proto-dri3-dev x11proto-present-dev x11proto-gl-dev x11proto-xf86vidmode-dev libexpat1-dev libudev-dev gettext glmark2 glmark2-es2 mesa-utils xutils-dev libpthread-stubs0-dev ninja-build bc python-pip flex bison cmake git valgrind llvm llvm-8-dev python3-pip pkg-config zlib1g-dev wayland-protocols Download and install meson wget sudo dpkg -i meson_0.51.1-1_all.deb Download and install mesa DRM git clone git:// cd drm meson build --prefix=/usr ninja -C build sudo -E ninja -C build install cd ..

  9. I try not to aim at the total noobs with my videos. I expect people who watch my videos to know what an SBC is, and how to write an image to an SD-card. I think ETA-Prime is better for you. He's a noob explaining to other noobs Try to learn from him Then later on maybe again watch one of my videos again No hard feelings, just messing a bit.
  10. A title can only be that long. How should I have called it otherwise? This is the title : Install Armbian on an SBC - Desktop Set up - Install to NVMe ( RockPi4B ) It is just my standard install that I've done so many times that I show. I advertise Armbian with it, and nobody pays me to do it. I can't change the video once it's made. If you want it done better. I'm going to make a video about building armbian. You could write something that you want in it, or give suggestions. Cheers
  11. I could indeed have put a lot more info into it. Someone asked me about my dektop setup. So I quickly made this video. Sorry you don't like it. Cheers.
  12. You could use balbes150 his N2 Buster image. This is with kernel 5.2. But almost everything works as it should. Otherwise you could build a Buster image yourself if you've got an x86 pc.
  13. Did you also follow these instructions?
  14. Hi all. I've made a new noob video on how to install Armbian on an SBC. I also show how I set up my Armbian desktop. And I show how to install Armbian onto another media. Greetings, NicoD

    Very nice setup. What hat is that? I only knew about the sata hat, and now the NVMe hat. I'd love to have the nvme hat, I'll see to buy it next month. Thanks for the sbcporn.
