    NicoD got a reaction from g00d in How to debug boot issues on ODROID-HC2   
    You need to use ssh to login to it, and then configure everything like that.
    This video shows how to install headless(without hdmi).

    I'm not sure, but I think OMV can do full disk encryption easily. For that you need a Debian (buster, bullseye) image and OMV can be installed with armbian-config.
    Here how to install OMV. Search google for full disk encryption on OMV.

    NicoD got a reaction from tommy in armbian-gaming : A tool to install Box86, Box64 and Wine on Armbian Hirsute   
    Hi all.
    I've created a tool to install Box86, Box64 and Wine onto Armbian Hirsute 5.13

    I've tested it on RK3399. Should work on any device with panfrost drivers enabled.

    Please let me know on what it works, or if it doesn't.
     
    Here is the script.

    I also made a video where I show how to use it.

    If you have time and a spare Allwinner H3-CPU system (like the Orange Pi One or PC (not PC2 because of H3 CPU)
    you could try the BASIC Engine NG for H3-PiComputers/Boards.
     
    The - bare metall - BASIC seems to have very powerful commands - see the Online-Manual

    NicoD reacted to Werner in Help a newbie out - resources for choosing a TV box   
    Considering this a TVbox might not the best choice for you since there would be lots of frustration.
    If you want an ARM board with well supported SoC I'd recommend something with RK3399 onboard. Yeah it is slightly older and there is a new generation of Rockchips now but remember that development for ARM is still rather slow and it takes several years to get a chip almost fully functional.
    The Station P1 (which in a nutshell is a T-Firefly RK3399 ROC-PC PLUS board in a fancy case) is working quite well in the meantime and @balbes150 is actively supporting it. Yes, it is also a bit more expensive but you get is what you pay for.
    Having Debian on it you can use it as PC and installing Kodi will give you TVbox "feeling".

    NicoD got a reaction from Willy Moto in Pandrost for the Odroid N2 / N2+ and Khadas VIM3   
    Hi all.
    The Panfrost GPU driver is finally starting to mature for Mali G52 on the Odroid N2/N2+ and Khadas VIM3.
    It doesn't perform great yet. But this will improve with time. In this video I show how to activate the panfrost driver on Armbian mainline.
     
    To activate panfrost :
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade sudo reboot Khadas VIM3 support is in the making. This also works on any other mainline image.
    Greetings.

    NicoD got a reaction from Werner in Video : Armbian Hirsute XFCE4 - What's new, fixes, tips and benchmarks   
    Hi all. I've just finished a new video about Armbian Hirsute XFCE4.
    I show what's new. Mostly the feel and look are a bit more modern.
    Here is my video.
     
    Some other notes I've got :

     
    Memory usage buster < focal < hirsute xfce4 < budgie < cinnamon CPU performance buster < hirsute < focal xfce4 < cinnamon < budgie So Buster xfce uses the least memory. And is also the slowest.
    Hirsute is quite a bit slower than Focal, and uses more memory. I do find the newer looks worth the price.
     
    Here my benchmarks :

    NicoD reacted to Igor in Armbian 21.08 has been released   
    Armbian is an established Linux for single board computers that is used in enterprise, IOT micro services and various hobby deployments. Recent desktop improvements bring the platform on-par with key players in the Linux desktop arena while keeping the key advantage – you can easily build your own Linux distribution.
     
     
     
     
    Armbian provides stable releases every three months. They are driven by CURRENT LTS kernel. Adventurers which likes rolling releases, can check EDGE releases which are using latest daily kernel builds with fresh packages from sid, hirsute or impish userland.
     
    Armbian has powerful build system which can build a whole Linux distribution, an OS image or a kernel. Key advantages are simplicity, speed and excellent hardware support. Provides native or cross compilation.
     
    This release is hard work of exceptional individuals who have contributed their time and expertise into this release. Many thanks to – in alphabetic order:

    @balbes150 @AristoChen @belegdol @Werner@Heisath @iav @Igor @Icenowy @lanefu @jock @piter75@Rich Neese@rpardini@going @tkaiser @tparys @TonyMac32 @Azq2 @henkiejan1 @juanesf @psztoch, @redchenjs @Uglymotha

    Special thanks to users and vendors @orangepi, @friendlyelec, @khadas and @olimex that understand the importance of our work and supports the project with donations of cash, hardware & expertise.

    Enjoy!
     
    Highlights
     
    minimal, server or XFCE, Cinnamon and Budgie desktop fast and effective automated language selection on first run regular stable and daily beta & EDGE updates CLI is powered with ZSH or BASH added automated kernel upgrade on EDGE 5.13.y kernels added mainline based SPI boot support for Odroid HC4 added Qemu virtual Armbian builds added CSC images for Tinkerboard 2, Rockpi N10, added ZFS upgrade to v2.1 improved Github Actions CI and CDN network added Cinnamon and Budgie desktop enabled 3D support wherever its possible and works reasonble well added Khadas VIM1-3 & Edge boards, Avnet Microzed enabled VPU support for Rockchip added legacy kernel support for OrangepiZero2, Nvidia Jetson declare Ubuntu Hirsute and Debian Bullseye packages as stable added Ubuntu Impish and Debian Sid as beta build targets added KDE plasma DE as a beta build target
    Details:
     
    What’s Left
     
    long term armbian-config refactoring upgrading Rockchip u-boot from 2010.y to latest resolving Allwinner boot troubles on last u-boot enable 3D on Meson G12 / SM1 infrastructure improvements: mirros, runners, publishing.  
    Details:
     
    Tough Decisions
     
    Odroid C4/HC4 boot problem has to remain unresolved in CURRENT 5.10.y kernel since fixing it would break Khadas boards. Problem was properly solved in EDGE kernel. We had to disable 3D on latest Amlogic boards due to instability Leaving behind published Deepin, Enlightenment, Gnome, i3, KDE plasma, Mate, Xmonad desktop due to space constrains and lack of maintenance. These options are still available within the build tool.  
    Known problems
     
    XFCE desktop is missing package gvfs-backends and xarchiver bullseye doesn’t properly detect locales Helios64 eMMC IO errors with CURRENT kernel OrangepiZero2 EDGE kernel based image doesn’t boot. Will be fixed in bug fix release.

    NicoD reacted to balbes150 in Firefly Station P2 (rk3568) M2 (rk3566)   
    I received samples of P2 and M2. the first impressions are very positive. I checked the launch of the official versions of Ubuntu 18.04 from Fyrefly. Everything starts and works from the SD card. The startup process is very simple, I downloaded the image, unpacked it, wrote it to the SD card, connected it to P2\M2, turned on the power and the system automatically updated the bootloader in eMMC, rebooted and the Ubuntu system automatically started from the SD card (the regular Station system in eMMC is saved and works if there is no SD card).
     
    I really liked the mechanism for connecting SATA devices (SSD\HDD) to P2, it is very simple. I immediately connected a 240GB SSD drive. It was automatically detected and appeared in the system. WiFi antennas on P2 are full-fledged and large, they obviously did not save money here and will ensure proper operation.

    Hi all.
    I'm working on a script that can install different Linux gaming tools like Box86, Box64, PPSSPP, ...
    For now it can only install box86 and box64. There is also an issue installing wine, so this doesn't work either.
     
    https://github.com/NicoD-SBC/armbian-gaming
     
    Download and unzip and run script : sudo /bin/bash ./armbian-gaming.sh When ready I'll make a video about it and give more info.
     
    I've tested it on the PineBookPro with Hirsute.
    With the Odroid N2+ you need to activate panfrost, install dependecies for N2+, and then install box86. Tho it didn't work as it should.
    If "install box86" gives a build error, try the dependencies for N2+ and try "install box86" again.
     
    Please let me know your experiences on other systems.

Due to the peculiarities of installing the media package, for proper operation during subsequent system updates, I recommend freezing the current kernel, it differs from those that arrive in network repositories (the list of supported modules and devices has been significantly expanded).
