    Werner got a reaction from Saru in X96 mini   
    CSC stands for community supported configuration which means somebody took time to make Armbian work on specific device. However the device may not have an active maintainer that takes care of future kernel versions and supporting so it could break any time with upgrading since Armbian often does not even have a sample of the device in the lab to make basic functional tests. Also if something breaks and nobody is around that knows the device and how to fix it it stays broken. Armbian developers may/can/will not help.

    Werner reacted to Cornelius in Hirsute no ethernet after update   
    I haven't noticed any eth related problems on 5.13.y and RK3399, but when moving to 5.14.y I also found that eth no longer worked. I corrected the issue by reverting the following commit: https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/2d26f6e39afb88d32b8f39e76a51b542c3c51674
     
    I understand its not a true fix. This was tested on the NanoPC-T4.

    New version of images 20210915-edge with 5.15.0-rc1 kernel.
    Please note, this version does not have an HDMI output, control is performed via SSH or UART. The wired network works, both LAN1 and LAN2 interfaces work on P2, M2 - LAN1.
    Please note that this is the primary test version and unpredictable behaviors are possible.

    The size requirements have been updated.
     
    Since we now share images with various desktop environments as well the size of all torrents have now grown to around 500GB.
    To become future-proof again the free space requirement has been raised to 1TB.
     
    For those who did not notice yet. It became rather simple to become an Armbian http/s mirror as well if you do not like torrent stuff: https://github.com/armbian/mirror

    LIB_TAG has nothing to do with kernel branches. You should always build from master unless you know what you do or being told otherwise.
    I suggest to start over with a clean workspace since I yesterday successfully built an OPi02 bullseye legacy image without issues.

    Werner got a reaction from Pedro Lamas in Bullseye: Automatic upgrade when unstable becomes stable?   
    Unfortunately userspace upgrades like Bionic to Focal or Stretch to Buster have never been officially supported by Armbian due to lack of resources for proper testing. It probably works if you freeze your firmware packages and follow official Ubuntu/Debian guide how to upgrade but if something goes wrong you won't receive help from Armbian.

    Armbian is a community driven project. This is not about trying to find someone to blame, but trying to solve issues by pointing to alleged sources of the trouble.
     
    And indeed community support is there as you can see in this thread - it could be stronger though.

    Werner reacted to NicoD 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 :

    Werner 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:

    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!

    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.

    Werner reacted to ygoe in SPI communication nonfunctional, no data received   
    I have found the solution. The bus number must be 1, not 0 as explained everywhere. This will create the device /dev/spidev1.0 instead of spidev0.0 and applications must be adapted. But with this modification I can access the SPI device.
     
    So here's the relevant overlay configuration in /boot/armbianEnv.txt:
    overlays=spi-spidev param_spidev_spi_bus=1  
    And the SPI interface can be used only under this path: /dev/spidev1.0
     
    Who knows where that bus number 0 leads to...

    Starting 5.12, no kernel patches are needed for H264. With 5.14 (due in about a week or two), only HEVC needs patches. Other supported codecs (MPEG2, VP8, H264) do not.
     
    You still have to make sure that you have enough CMA memory available. 4k videos can be pretty demanding in worst case. I would suggest 256 MiB just to be on the safe side.
