    Not an official Armbian image, therefore it is most likely that official way will not work.
    Ask the author of your 3rd party image for the kernel sources.

    Werner reacted to XFer012 in OrangePi Zero2 - Allwinner H616   
    Ok, so let's see the steps I followed.
    1. Installed Armbian Unstable for OrangePi Zero2:
    2. Forced ethernet at 100 mbit/s, otherwise it did not work: added in /etc/rc.local
    ethtool -s eth0 speed 100 duplex full autoneg off
    3. Downloaded hexdump's precompiled kernel (derived from jernej's 5.11.0rc1 kernel):
    4. Extracted the various parts and fixed the symlinks:
    Image -> Image-5.11.0-rc1-stb-616+
    uInitrd -> uInitrd-5.11.0-rc1-stb-616+
    dtb -> dtb-5.11.0-rc1-stb-616+
    5. Inside dtb-5.11.0-rc1-stb-616+, created a new folder "allwinner" and moved the 3 .dtb there; otherwise, initramfs would not find them
    6. Rebooted. Voilà, we now have a working mainline-ish kernel (patched 5.11.0rc1) with USB support!

    Do that 1st. I tried many variants, also tried Arch out of despair when trying to get NVME working at full speed, which could be BIOS problem ... since it actually work, just sometimes doesn't. At the end settled with Ubuntu 20.04 Mate. Light desktop was anyway planned.

    Absolutely. Ours is on (a quality) 650W (stronger is in another machine and swap was planned) and it didn't burst into the flames when overclocked to max. But UPS started to sing an overload song when I tried that.

    Package update in the repos. It reverts back the addition of station-m1 and station-p1 kernels, to the previous state, when everything worked fine. We are keeping the "Depends" relationship to the legacy kernel, since the package actually depends on the legacy kernel: it won't work with a different kernel, and even more it will break the system if installed.

    Werner reacted to NicoD in Nanopi M4 V2 power issue   
    It begins at the far end of the USB. Pin 39/40 are next the USB.
    When you use these jumper wires it is best to power with 2 power wires and 1 GND. So pins 2 and 4 you power with 5V. And pin 6 ground.
    The M4V2 can consume up to 2A. Many jumper wires are not made for such high load. So dividing it over 2 wires makes sure there's no too much resistance.

    Given the following comment posted in response to the new invalid message discussed above:

    I took another look at the language in the big red warning message that is displayed for people posting new topics in the bug tracking forums.  While it would seem obvious to those of us on the inside what we are trying to communicate, to the novice user I think there is room to make it more clear.  To that end I have the following suggested wording changes:

    Also yes. Armbian by default uses 50% if available memory for zram. If you have a fast harddrive like SSD or NVMe attached it of course makes sense to put a common swap there.

    I don't see a problem with using the invalid label as it is invalid according to the directions the user has read (or not read).  What I think would improve this is giving the user more direction on what to do next.  I think some working changes in the post that closes the thread as invalid would be all that is necessary.  So instead of:
    Your issue report is invalid for one or multiple reasons (non-exhaustive enumeration):
    it has been stated at the wrong place
    it lacks fundamental requested data
    it could have been easily solved by a quick search and/or reading documentation
    unsupported userspace/image/SBC
    Since you refused to use the bug reporting form carefully and follow the information there as you have been asked for we have no intention to further investigate.
    Please add missing information if applicable.
    Something like:
    Your issue report is not a valid bug report per the Armbian bug reporting instructions (https://www.armbian.com/bugs).  With limited resources the Armbian project is only able to spend time on issues where all the requested information has been provided and for only the boards/images/software that are supported.  Your report is invalid for one or more of the following reasons (non-exhaustive list):
    - it is for an unsupported board or image
    - it is for software that isn't supported (such as userspace modules installed on top of the core operating system)
    - it has been logged in the wrong forum (for example requests for help that are not actual bug reports)
    - it lacks requested data (armbianmonitor output)
    - it could have been easily solved by a quick search and/or reading documentation
    Please review what you have submitted and the bug logging instructions (https://www.armbian.com/bugs) and either add the required information or open a new topic in the correct forum (such as "Common issues / peer to peer technical support" or "General chit chat")
    I think this softens the tone and tries to help the user do the right thing.  Which they likely still won't

    Werner reacted to JMCC in RK3288/RK3328 Legacy Multimedia Framework   

    After two years of using a separate script to enable the multimedia features in RK3288/3328 Legacy Kernel, the whole framework has been incorporated to the official Armbian packaging system. The choice distro for this integration is Debian Buster (see FAQ at the end of this post about the reasons).
    I. Installation
    Download a Armbian Buster Legacy Desktop image for your board, and install it with the standard Armbian method. Install the complete multimedia solution with sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade sudo apt install media-buster-legacy-tinkerboard --install-recommends ## Or ## sudo apt install media-buster-legacy-rk3328 --install-recommends The switch "--install-recommends" will add the whole Kodi binary addons collection (retro-gaming cores, music visualizations, screensavers, additional media decoders/encoders, vfs, etc.), plus the GLES-to-OpenGL wrapper "gl4es".  
    II. Features
    Accelerated GLES/EGL X desktop: No action needed. Accelerated Chromium, with WebGL and video display acceleration: No action needed Desktop video player capable of smooth 4K HEVC-HDR: Use the "Rockchip Gst Player" from the Multimedia menu, or choose it with right-click on the media file. Command-line 4K playing is also possible with "gst-play-1.0 --videosink=kmssink". RKMPP-accelerated MPV: Use normally for standard operation (windowed with mouse-operated GUI). For fullscreen, keyboard-operated mode, use the command line switch "--gpu-context=drm" (this will allow you to play smooth 4K).
            - See instructions below, in the next post, for playing Youtube videos up to 4k with this MPV. ISP Camera with real-time h.264/1080p HW encoding (RK3288 only): Using the Gstreamer Plugin. Check this wiki for instructions on how to use it. Most of it applies to Armbian, except for the selection of ov5647/imx219 camera, which must be done using DT overlays. OpenCL 1.2 support (RK3288 only): It will be fully functional, no further action needed. You can download some tests and examples from this link. Kodi 18.9 Leia with full RKMPP+GBM acceleration, 4K-HDR capable: You can start it from Light DM menu as your user account: 
    Alternatively, you can also run it as a system service with these command lines: sudo systemctl disable lightdm sudo systemctl enable kodi-gbm sudo reboot  
    Full collection of Kodi binary add-ons: Includes retrogaming cores, media encoders and decoders, PVR, screensavers, vfs and audio visualizations. They are all installed with the package "kodi-addons-full", but are disabled by default. They need to be enabled individually within the Kodi GUI. OpenGL 2.1 support through the gl4es wrapper: It is installed with the package "gl4es", with no further action needed.  
    III. Sources
    This is the list of the sources used for the packages:
    IV. FAQ
    ¿Why did you use Debian Buster as a base for this implementation?
    It was the most appropriate for several reasons. Upstream Rockchip-Linux developers use Debian buster, so the software could be ported with less modifications than if we chose a different distro. Besides, it is a completely stable distro, unlike Bullseye, which is a moving target as of today. It also has Chromium as a package, unlike Focal that uses snap instead. For last, it has a good backports repo, with several libs that would otherwise need to be compiled and maintained if we chose, for example, Focal.
      ¿Why Legacy instead of Mainline?
    This is an implementation based on the vendor's BSP kernel. It has been tested and is reliable, which many people will prefer rather than having a bleeding-edge, less stable implementation. In addition to that, Mainline upstream multimedia support is still a WIP, and lacks many features that are only present on Legacy kernels.
      ¿Will you add new features to this implementation?
    No, this implementation will only receive bug fixes if necessary. From now on, all multimedia work will be focused on Mainline and recent distros (like Focal or Bullseye). All new features will go there.

    Before complaining about an issue read this!
    tl;dr: Put your Zero2 and/or any other H616 based device on the shelf and WAIT for proper support to come. And no. There is no ETA. Assuming usable state end 2021/beginning 2022.
    Software support is still work in progress and under heavy development. Provided preview images can break any time. Do not report this, we are aware of that and can/will not help you with that if you are not willing to investigate and research by yourself.
    Feel free to join fellow developers to their efforts to create proper software support. But don't waste our time with complains. Thank you!
    I started to play with this board and obviously failed miserably creating a basic Armbian integration.
    Anyway. These are the information I collected so far:
