  1. Thanks @tkaiser. You're right, the use would be the same (gitlab-runner), except that it would build 64bits binaries. I also thought of using a S912 based TV Box, but I know nothing about its eMMC performances and it looks like it's a pain to install Armbian on these boxes. I will have a closer look to Rock64, thanks ($35.44 is a nice price tag to start). I will try to find a 2.5' SDD.
  2. Hi, as I have trouble with aging SDCards, I was thinking of getting a new SBC with eMMC (I already have Odroid XU4, but it's not cheap). I'm pretty happy with OrangePi Zero, but would love to find a SBC with a 64bits SoC, Gigabit Ethernet, 1GB of RAM (as 512MB implies swapping for my use case) and eMMC. OrangePi have the 3G-IOT (which is only 512MB) and 4G-IOT, but they are not supported, and I don't fancy all the gizmos that are on these boards. NanoPi M1+ almost fits the bill, but it's a 32bits SoC. NanoPi K1+ is almost perfect, but it's pricey (and has 2GB of RAM, which would not be a problem if it was cheaper). Any suggestion? Thanks.
  3. I've been looking at this expansion board for a while now, but I'm still undecided. My first question is: what is the maximum physical size of mSata drives that we can put on the expansion board? 30mmx50mm, 2.5'? What part of the system can we host on this extension? Anything but boot? I guess the Zero can't boot on that? For the time being, the Zero I'd like to upgrade is a gitlab-runner (building ARM binaries and Docker images). I'm not really concerned about speed, but about having a stable solution (no degrading SDCard performance) and a way to swap without killing the storage media. Thanks.
  4. I know I'm supposed to log with armbianmonitor -u, but I can't behind that ***** corporate proxy.

  5. There is an opensource wm that I'd like to use with Armbian. I have compiled and installed it, but would like to have it as a package. I have forked a repo that makes a .deb of this wm and built it with Shippable (so aarch64). I don't have any Debian mirror to host it... so... What is the standard way to build a package for Armbian? There are also other libraries/tools (like pacman, libarchive) that I have compiled (because I could not find them)... Thanks.

    What about Google Home

    I now can build the image, dpkg-deb: building package 'linux-source-4.17.11-next-sunxi64' in '/home/vagrant/armbian/.tmp/linux-source-next-sunxi64_5.54_all.deb'.

Anyway, it's building now, which is way better than what I had beforehands...
  7. It looks like CSI is way more powerful than USB because of bandwith, direct access to GPU, and other reasons. The problem is most of my boards don't have a CSI connector; the Raspberry Pi is the only one. The NanoPi Fire3 has a DVP interface, but the camera choice seems to be smaller... The Renegade Elite will have a CSI interface, but it will not be available before September, and it could take a few months to get it working under Armbian. I will try to understand ISP/CSI/DVP and make a choice...
  8. Thanks @chwe. It doesn't have to work now, as the target solution (DSLR camera, Windows Laptop and proprietary software) has already been found and validated. My goal is to propose a FOSS ARM cheaper alternative... If it doesn't work now, that's not really a problem. I'd like it to work by November; the first solution will be put at work in September, but would be scaled next year. If I ever can find something before the end of the year, that would be nice. As logged in my gist, I have access to: Two Orange Pi Zero Orange Pi One Plus Two Raspberry Pi 3B+ Two Raspberry Pi 3B Odroid XU4 NanoPi Fire3 Renegade Elite in September video converter octopuss Something working with Armbian (at least partially) would be really cool. I still have to investigate on CSI cameras, lenses and so on...
  9. Thanks. I am logging the information there: https://gist.github.com/gounthar/6e207308c05b0c6cf52e14e3c0f778af .
  10. Wow, pretty interesting indeed (for the video encoding part), thanks! Now, if someone had a suggestion on how to generate that video without a DSLR... but a cam that would work directly with a SBC...
  11. Hi Gang, I'm wondering which SBC running Armbian could be good at recording and broadcasting sound and video (for a conference). I asked the question on Twitter too.

    Unfortunately no. I've been having a hectic schedule at work, and my ISP box just stopped working last week. I got my new one yesterday, so I hope to have a look at it this week-end. Thanks.

    @Da Xue will there be any package with eMMC?
