  1. NicoD's post in Is it possible to run Doom on a BIGTREETECH CB1? was marked as the answer   
    Retropie is an option. It should run fine. You can use armbian-gaming to install it and also some other emulators.
    This SoC should run ps1, some N64, snes, nes, gb, gba, ...
    I don't think ppsspp would work on it. 
    I'm not aware of the GPU drivers for this SoC. So not sure about things that need gpu. Most retropie emulators don't use gpu. For doom on dosbox you don't need gpu drivers either.
  2. NicoD's post in Ubuntu vs Debian was marked as the answer   
    Bionic, Focal, jammy Noble are all Ubuntu. 
    Buster, Bullseye, bookworm, sid are all Debian versions.

    You use what you prefer or what fits your tasks best.
    I use Armbian Jammy on my Rock5B since I use it as main desktop and that's the image that works best for that.
    On my travel NanoPi R6S I use Armbian Noble because it has a better KDEnlive version to edit and render video's on my cycling trips.
    On my NAS ZimaBoard I use Noble because it fixes an issue with mounted drives, but could just as well use a debian version.

    For your tasks I would probably use Armbian Bookworm and install the apps.
    You probably could use CasaOS on Jammy for these tasks. It is a webinterface that allows you to install and setup docker apps.
    To install casaOS on Jammy :
    wget -qO- https://get.casaos.io | sudo bash
    So both downloadable images are community releases and not official armbian supported images.
    There is bookworm Debian 12 minimal which has only the essential things to boot a system and set it up.
    The other is Jammy Ubuntu 22.04 with the Gnome desktop. 

    I would advice to build your own images with the distro version you want. 
  3. NicoD's post in trying to get quality audio from ORANGE PI 3 LTS line out was marked as the answer   
    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.
  4. NicoD's post in Cant install rockchip multimedia repository on a Orange pi 5 with cinnamon, ip not found error was marked as the answer   
    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.
  5. NicoD's post in No hdmi sound on vim3l khadas was marked as the answer   
    This might be a fix. I haven't had the time to test and implement.

    Steps used to fix audio on Armbian Clone @Spikerguy Repository From Manjaro Gitlab Ensure you have git installed with, pi@twisteros:~$ sudo apt install git Make a destination subdirectory under /home/pi for git pulls and builds, pi@twisteros:~$ mkdir ~/builds Change to your new ‘builds’ directory, pi@twisteros:~$ cd ~/builds Clone local copies of the Manjaro files: pi@twisteros:~$ git clone manjaro-arm / packages / community / khadas-utils · GitLab Copy Files to Their Correct Locations pi@twisteros:~$ sudo cp ~/builds/khadas-utils/g12_sound.sh /usr/bin pi@twisteros:~$ sudo cp ~/builds/khadas-utils/sound.service /usr/lib/systemd/system/ pi@twisteros:~$ sudo cp ~/builds/khadas-utils/G12B-KHADAS-VIM3.conf /usr/share/alsa/cards/ pi@twisteros:~$ sudo ln -s /usr/share/alsa/cards/G12B-KHADAS-VIM3.conf /usr/share/alsa/cards/G12BKHADASVIM3.conf pi@twisteros:~$ sudo cp ~/builds/khadas-utils/G12B-KHADAS-VIM3.conf /etc/asound.conf Make sure that /usr/bin/g12_sound.sh is executable. It should already be, and you can check with, pi@twisteros:~$ ls -l /usr/bin/g12_sound.sh Otherwise a quck chmod won’t hurt: pi@twisteros:~$ sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/g12_sound.sh Initialize the Systemd Sound Service Unit pi@twisteros:~$ sudo systemctl enable sound.service  
  6. NicoD's post in Not enough memory to compile on OrangePi Zero was marked as the answer   
    You can create a swap file for this.
    If you're using an sd-card then it will be very slow, but it will work. You can use zram and swap files together. It will first use zram, then swap file.
    Here is how to create a swapfile. This is for 8GB, if you only need 1GB then use 1GB. When done just reverse the commands and delete /swapfile (sudo rm /swapfile)
    sudo fallocate -l 8G /swapfile Allocate 8GB for swapfile sudo chmod 600 /swapfile Give the correct rights for the swapfile sudo mkswap /swapfile Make it a swapfile sudo swapon /swapfile Turn on the swapfile sudo nano /etc/fstab Open fstab and add the line ... /swapfile swap swap defaults 0 0  
  7. NicoD's post in Armbian as read-only was marked as the answer   
    You might want to look in this. It is old, and I don't know if it is still the way to go.
  8. NicoD's post in Buster image - unable to boot RockPi 4 B (1GB) board was marked as the answer   
    @hsesYou can try archived images. https://armbian.hosthatch.com/archive/rockpi-4b/archive/
    5.8 should work. You can then update/upgrade.
    @IgorAll rk3399 images seem troubled. I'm waiting to release a video about the Buster media script since no Buster Legacy image works on download page for RK3399. There are enough ways to make it work with either self build, archived or @balbes150 images.
    I hope the beast will soon flex its muscles

  10. NicoD's post in Emulating x86 on the Nanopim4V2 was marked as the answer   
    Try this.
    Doesn't work with everything, but you might be able to run your program if it ain't too fancy.
