    I didn't got any compile error, only one patch rejected, but because already present in 5.3.y.
     
    One more thing I found with my OPiPC+ experiment : reboot doesn't restart, it stall at "reaching restart", but U-Boot "restarting" never appears ...
    (a bit like the early days of H6, but OPiPC+ is H3 and never got this issue)
     
    Now trying again with 5.2.6 to figure out when bugs has been introduced ...
     
    EDIT: 5.2.6 still look good ...
     
    EDIT2: Same behaviours with OPiPlus2E 5.3.0-rc3 image ...
     
    EDIT3: Doing an OPiZeroPlus2-H5 images : No Wifi problem, and since no crash, "reboot" work properly, so, maybe related ...

    Werner reacted to lanefu in [RFC] New Naming Convention for Kernel Source Trees   
    See conversation in this commit for background
     
    The current default, Next, Dev naming convention for the kernel source trees is confusing, and a bit inconsistent.   I think it's time to rename them and provide clear definitions of what they are supposed to provide.
     
    I'll start with some ideas here:

    Vendor 
     
    This Kernel is currently called Default .  The Vendor kernel would be the BSP-derived kernel or vendor maintained kernel.  Typically there for basic functionality early in a boards life.  Armbian can supply patches for these kernels
     
    LTS

    This kernel is currently called Next.   The LTS kernel would follow a LTS version of mainline or fork.  Ex: 4.19 of Megous's branch for orangepi, mainline:4.19 for espressobin.   This should be our flagship kernel and the only one we "support" for end users.  Armbian can supply patches for these kernels
     
    Unstable
     
    This kernel is currently called Dev.  The Unstable kernel would follow a recent branch or fork of a kernel.  Armbian can supply patches for these kernels.
     
    Mainline
     
    This is new.  It would follow mainline:master.  Its purpose is to provide a 100% mainline experience when practical.  No patches will be supplied by Armbian.

    Werner got a reaction from lanefu in wrong sources in repository for linux-image-next-sunxi   
    Odd. Seems like the debs are behind.
     
    You may upgrade to dev branch, however there will not be any official support anymore.Though as for my experience I never had issues using dev on Allwinner H3 SoC
     
    If you do not want to do that there are a few options:
    - Wait until someone fixes the debs
    - Go to https://github.com/armbian/build, clone the script and create your own packages
    - Go to https://laet.pw/index.php/s/M2eXJKll5sdnlBN and grab the needed packages as I had boredom and built/uploaded a few packages today and maybe I'll even update this share from time to time.
     
    I'd recommend option 1 as it is the safest. Never trust unofficial sources.

    OrangePi Zero: My very first SBC. I do not really remember why I bought it but it started with DietPi. It served Pihole for my network. Then Dietpi dropped their support for OrangePi boards and Pihole dropped their support for older Debian distributions. So a new OS was needed and that is the reason I landed her and I have to tell I learned a LOT about all the things thanks to Armbian OrangePi One Plus: Well the main reason were the quite interesting specifications and the low price. Even though this board (or Allwinner H6 at all) is poorly designed I am not that disappointed about it. It very rarly failed on me, worked most of the time really nice. It serves data sharing, another One Plus is for testing purpose of new images and features. OrangePi One: As a nice replacement for the OrangePi Zero. Better voltage regulator and no crappy wireless onboard for the same price.Two of those I prepared with Armbian and Pihole and gave them away to friends. In the meantime I have another pair of Ones to prepare and give them away somewhen in the future as well. Kind a to spread the word about SBCs, Pihole and last but not least Armbian. Well... that's it. Quite a short list but much text ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  A board I always wanted to have but did not have a chance yet is the OrangePi Zero Plus. GBe and Allwinner H5 SoC. Maybe sometime in the future...

    you guys have to many SBCs...
     
    They dropped cause they no longer wanted to use armbian as a base for their images iirc..
     
     
    Hmm the boards I remember I have..
     
    Beagle bone the white one
    beagle board xM or so, they were from the pre RPi time, I never did much with it..
    opi zero, opi pc+, opi 2g-iot, opi 4g-iot, OPi 3 and OPi with H6 but no USB3 don't even remember the name..
    BPi m2 zero, BPI R2, BPi W2
    RPi 1b (one of the first in switzerland probably...) RPi 2b, somewhere there should be a 3b, and yes I bought a 4b
    RockPi 4b, somewhere there's a RK3399 TV box which I never hacked fully..
    a Olimex Lime 2 (this board looks just like made by people who know what they're doing I would love to see some new boards from them.. )
    and finally a Lichee Pi Zero which runs Debian stretch on a 64mb ram board without issues.. (okay.. I never gave it much workload.. but iirc there was once a python script with logging stuff running on it).. 
     
    okay.. I might have also too many SBCs..
    ahh.. and a Tinkerboard.. they were dirt cheap here back then.. now 2 years later they're doubled the price they had in the beginnings..
     
    The most used one is still the OPi Zero.. it was cheap back then.. and for most of my work sufficient.. The RockPi crushed numbers for 14 days in a row sitting at 75-80°C without issues, I was actually surprised.. cause it was one of the self crafted early images for this board.. The tinker was fun to mess with.. but I never cared about desktop.. so actually this board didn't make much sense for me.. The BPi R2 was a rabbit hole to mess with u-boot, but I learned a lot (network is still crippled).. The W2, I don't know.. it's a strange thingie.. People here do crazy thing to hack TV boxes with the same SoC (actually a cool thread cause not much bloating, so please don't mess there ..).
     
    completely forgot.. there's a HC1 as well,, but this serves as a NAS box I don't mess with, I just does what I expect from a NAS box..

    I'll for sure forget some of them.
    It all started with the Raspberry Pi2B(4 years ago now) ... and then ...
    Odroid C2                         (For 3 years my favorite. Clocked at 1.75Ghz, with 128Ghz eMMC and ram OC it's amazingly fast. Low power consumption, good video playback(low display resolution), great gaming on it. Still use it as my SBC laptop, but the VIM3'll replace it Raspberry Pi3B                 (Not better than the pervious model. Dissapointed by it) Raspberry Pi Zero (+ 2 x Zero W)  (was handy, had build a Pi0Camera with it and an audio recorder, got in dissuse) Orange Pi+2                     (hated it, I still believed the 1.6Ghz bs, afterwards started to love it for what it is) Tinker Board (x2)             (Worst buy ever, too expensive for what it's. First broke, I was so stupid to buy another one without using it much) Khadas VIM2 Max           (Too slow for what it is. Otherwise a good designed board when used for what it's good) Odroid XU4                     (Loved it. It was my 2nd desktop with a HDMI-hub so I could switch to it when my PC was bussy. Amazing performance and great games. But a lot of issue's too) Rock64                            (a lot of issue's, nice on paper but doesn't deliver it's promises) Banana Pi M2 Zero          (nice little board, runs too hot to be useful, but had a lot of fun with it) NanoPC T3+                    (Love it a lot. Amazing for Blender renders, at a low power consumption. But single core performance is too low, should be default overclocked to 1.6Ghz in my opinion. It can handle it and cooling solution is sufficient) Raspberry Pi 3B+            (What a garbage board. DDR2 with a ok SoC is a bad combination. Bad power delivery, not very useable) NanoPi M4                      (My favorite until the VIM3 came, all-round a great board. Too bad there's a lack of Linux drivers for great gaming on it) Rock Pi 4B                       (First impression was great. But that went away after a while. Many software issues. I hate that I can't reach my eMMC with the big heatsink on) NanoPi DUO2                 (Still need to review it, but my first impression wasn't too good. Bad thermals, no hardware video encoding for the camera. This should be fixed by now, maybe a next video someday...) Orange Pi 3                    (Ok SoC, badly designed board) Pine H64 model b          (Ok SoC better designed board, it's their second try tho) Odroid N2                      (Great board, amazing performance and no fan needed. But runs at 12V so I can't run it on my power banks. I use it headless with VNC to do render jobs together with the NanoPC T3+) Nitrogen8M Mini           (I don't know yet, no HDMI and all proprietary connectors for everything. It is an industrial board for KIOSK's, but I'd like to see HDMI to set it up easily. It does have great audio assets, amplifier, audio in-out)
    Khadas VIM3                 (My newest favorite. What a performance for such low consumption at 5V. I've got the Basic, so much want the Pro... It's perfect to take with me to do heavy video render tasks. I love it...) Raspberry Pi4B             (My biggest surprise ever. Not thinking too much of it. But it's a lot more than I thought. Performs amazing.  But still has its faults. I think that's it. In chronological order I bought them.
    The first 2 were great boards that I still use a lot. But then I bought a lot of them that never delivered what they promissed. Only the XU4 and NanoPC T3+ were great.
    I started to get them for free to review starting with the NanoPi M4, and those were again very good.  Only bought the Odroid N2 after that.
    Good I review SBC's, I'm saving myself a lot of money now I've spend enough in the past on them.
    Cheers
