  1. My last attempt was switching to nightly, but again the system got unresponsive after a few days. I'm now installing "Armbian_5.38_Bananapi_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113_desktop". Maybe that works stable, if not I think that it's caused by a hardware malfunction... Unfortunately it seems that in that image it's not possible to install OMV via armbianconfig with all the improvments necessary to run smoothly (shown here). Sorry, found the menu to install OMV in armbian-config -> softy after rebooting, the OMV menu item is gone. OK, I stop polluting this thread and sta
  2. I have the same problem. I'm using an original BananaPi as headless server, OMV, and downgraded to 5.31 since it get unresponsive (exact like denox descripes it) after a couple of days with current image installed. Yesterday, after an uptime of about 10days it got unresponsive again, with the same symptoms as before. The banana is powered via 5V 3A power adapter over the SATA-Power connector, new SD card, 2,5" HD via SATA. Would it make sense to install an Armbian Xenial desktop legacy kernel 3.4.y image and give it a try?
  3. Well, I managed to build a custom u-boot, with the additional resolution of 800x480, with following patch: /armbian/build/userpatches/u-boot/u-boot-sunxi/branch_next/add_resolution_800_480.patch 1213/1213 100% diff --git a/drivers/video/videomodes.c b/drivers/video/videomodes.c index 6d96b33..7494d8b 100644 --- a/drivers/video/videomodes.c +++ b/drivers/video/videomodes.c @@ -106,6 +106,7 @@ const struct ctfb_res_modes res_mode_init[RES_MODES_COUNT] = { {1360, 768, 60, 11696, 85500, 256, 64, 17, 3, 112, 7, 0, FB_VMODE
  4. Hi, thanks for your reply and the links. I think I still have a major problem in understanding how all the parts play together in Armbian. The patch shown by Igor seems to be for the kernel driver. I thought I have to modify the u-boot video driver to get a proper console display (that is what I pursue). My attempt would be to create a patch for /drivers/video/videomodes.[c|h] with the new resolution and pixelclock etc. and install the patched u-boot. In the meantime it is a problem to get the correct technical data for that display (pixe
  5. OK, since there may be no easy way doing that: I started to build a development environment in a VM (armbian/build), and will try to modify the uboot video driver to support the 800x480 mode. Of course, I have to do a lot of research to understand how all that stuff works, any hints where to start are highly appreciated.
  6. Hello, and thank you for your great work on Armbian. I have a BananaPi running on Armbian 5.38 Debian Stretch, downgraded to 5.31 due to freezing problems. i would love to use a 5" 800x480 HDMI connected "china"-Display with the BananaPi. Unfortunately it doesn't provide any EDID infos. I managed to set the resolution to 800x600 with an overscan_y=120 in boot.cmd, setenv video-mode sunxi:800x600-24@60,monitor=hdmi,hpd=0,edid=0,overscan_y=120 to see a approximately matching console screen. But the display is somehow not correct, wrong colors and no sharp c
