    Librecomputer Renegade RK3328

    Is there anything I can do to assist in this, e.g. reach out to Firefly and ask them for certain settings? I would need to know exactly what to ask them. To everyone: besides the SD issues, do all other functions seem to be running smoothly on the Renegade with this image, in your testing? or is there anything else I should ask Firefly when I contact them. Thx guys

    Thanks for the explanation, @tkaiser. I'm assuming manufacturers do not provide data about the random IO performance of their cards, hence why we're left to test them ourselves.. It looks like the Extreme card that I tested even outperforms the Extreme Pro in your tests. but I suppose it also depends on the device used for testing. Perhaps a positive data point if we're trying to determine the Renegade's sd card read/write capabilities?

    I ran 'iostat 5' in a separate ssh sesh but I don't know how to identify anomalies. I also don't know how to interpret if there are any issues with the iozone results but here's the output: SanDisk Ultra 8gb SanDisk Extreme 32gb

    @JMCC I'm not sure I understand the issue you're experiencing but I had an instance when I was unable to write (to /boot/ iirc), despite using sudo. Solved it by using the root account instead. Also, I am experiencing some speed hiccups (temporary freezing) but I cannot recreate it at will. I do suspect things run snappier on my Raspberry Pi (e.g. during apt install) and I find myself a bit disappointed with the speed of the Renegade. Also in xfce. I do not know if this is due to the card itself (slow r/w which causes temporary freezing), or bugs in the Armbian image, or whatever else.

    Thanks but I've seen that pull request. The post-install script posted in the thread is kind of a mess because of the author's special use case (sata drive with dedicated root and data dirs) which further complicates an already-confusing process. At least I was having difficulty making sense of it when I was trying to get it to work and eventually gave up, I'm not as experienced with these things as some of you guys. I suppose my only option would be to try building an image of my own with the cryptsetup build options configured. I'll be following the instructions in the Armbian docs but is there anything in particular I should be doing when building for the Renegade? (I'm not clear on if the board is officially supported or not)

    Just wanna check if anyone has successfully gotten full disk encryption to work for the Renegade? I've been following a couple different tutorials but mostly this tutorial in the forum: which is for Armbian on Orange Pi (was hoping the process would be same or similar for the Renegade). Nonetheless I've been unsuccessful in my attempts, the board won't boot with the SD card with the encrypted partition. Does anyone have any ideas?
  7. Trying to get this working on the Renegade but it won't boot after swapping to the 2nd card at the end. Any ideas? @MMGen

    Here you go: For reference the card is a SanDisk Ultra 8gb HC I class 10 (at least that's what's printed on it). PS I previously stated that my board shows 4GB but I'd just like to confirm.. 'free -m' shows 3924, which is normal for 4GB right?

    The new image boots successfully! Great job guys, thanks for your work. PS: It shows 4gb RAM for my board, as it should. Let me know if there's anything else you'd like me to check or test and I'll do my best to help.

    The image isn't booting for me, is there anything that I've missed doing? Tried flashing using both dd and etcher

    No sun for me this summer! Huge thanks to everyone involved for making this available

    I'd love an Armbian image for this board
