  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 start a new one....sorry
  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_NONINTERLACED}, {1920, 1080, 60, 6734, 148500, 148, 88, 36, 4, 44, 5, FB_SYNC_HOR_HIGH_ACT | FB_SYNC_VERT_HIGH_ACT, FB_VMODE_NONINTERLACED}, {1920, 1200, 60, 6494, 154000, 80, 48, 26, 3, 32, 6, FB_SYNC_HOR_HIGH_ACT, FB_VMODE_NONINTERLACED}, + { 800, 480, 60, 33264, 27000, 88, 80, 29, 1, 60, 3, 0, FB_SYNC_HOR_HIGH_ACT | FB_SYNC_VERT_HIGH_ACT, FB_VMODE_NONINTERLACED}, }; /************************************************************************ diff --git a/drivers/video/videomodes.h b/drivers/video/videomodes.h index 82190a2..32b92f0 100644 --- a/drivers/video/videomodes.h +++ b/drivers/video/videomodes.h @@ -69,7 +69,8 @@ struct ctfb_vesa_modes { #define RES_MODE_1360x768 7 #define RES_MODE_1920x1080 8 #define RES_MODE_1920x1200 9 -#define RES_MODES_COUNT 10 +#define RES_MODE_800x480 10 +#define RES_MODES_COUNT 11 #define VESA_MODES_COUNT 19 It's pretty cool already, but it's not perfect As you can see on the attached pictures, something is wrong with the colors... I must confess that I am not quit sure about the values for timings, they are more or less collected from some sources in the net. Does anybody have an idea how to deal with that colors? Setting color deep in boot.cmd didn't help.
  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 (pixelclock etc.), but hopefully the vendor sends a datasheet.
  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 characters. The only resolution with correct colors and sharp characters was in 1280x720, but of course then most of the screen content is missing. Is there any chance to get a modified driver that supports that resolution? If I provided too less info, please let me know. I'm quite a novice in Armbian/Linux, so please have a little indulgence with me Regards, sude
