  1. I use systemctl stop sys-devices-platform-serial8250-tty-ttyS0.device ; systemctl stop dev-ttyS0.device which works but I'm using S905X p201 & p212 hardware.
  2. The problem is invariably the dtb. Also have a look at https://forum.armbian.com/topic/2419-armbian-for-amlogic-s905-and-s905x-ver-544/?do=findComment&comment=65706
  3. So that I knew what I was talking about, I took commit f29b82a2598b69b52764a51876685a7a079a36c6 of Amlogic_s905-kernel when I last replied to your original post. I built it with the /boot/config-3.14.29 from the June 2018 release that has /proc/version of Linux version 3.14.29-amlogics905x-gf29b82a-dirty That compiles for me using gcc-linaro-7.2.1-2017.11-i686_aarch64-linux-gnu toolchain (old PC) with the build command make ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu- -j4 (may need EXTRAVERSION= to make loadable files). If your using -j in the make, the compilation may have actually f
  4. Oh, I did a google search and came up with this copy which might do: https://github.com/abceset/Amlogic_s905-kernel/tree/khadas-3.14 which is a copy/clone and should do if you pick the right commit!
  5. Sorry you've misunderstood. As you know, the link provided was an armbian image and does not have the required kernel module. You might be able to find close matching AML 3.14.26 kernel source which complies after that module is added in the .config and load it but I doubt you will get away with no module symbol errors.
  6. Sorry thats binary image builds, not source. Since CONFIG_VLAN_8021Q= looks quite embedded, I don't think you will get away with obtaining the 3.14.x android kernel source (or khadas is there is one) and changing the VERSION in Makfeile to build the module (8021q.ko). I can't see how someone somewhere hasn't cloned 150balbes kernel repo with that branch.
  7. I've seen various X problems when moving up through the builds. It can be down to kernel, dtb etc. If X is crashing according to fbdev in /var/log/Xorg.log, its probably the kernel or dtb (also after startx). If lightdm gtk greeter consumes 100% on 1 cpu, try to change the greeter - take some tips from https://cialu.net/how-to-solve-failed-to-start-session-with-lightdm-and-xfce/ Disabling selinux at boot fixes a lot of strange issues. At the end of the day, it seems to be better to move onto a different armbian build or back to a good one, particularly kernel files and modules.
  8. I've not seen your specific problem but with the newer builds (kernel 5.3.0-aml-g12 or dtb?) I have observed with a s905x: mmc driver does not like of my Sandisk extreme micro sd card (neither do 4.x kernels) - gives kernel crash / Call trace during startup and fails to boot selinux appears to be fully active so I have help from selinux=0 at the end of bootargs= in /boot/uEnv.ini
  9. According to /boot/config-5.3.0-aml-g12 in Ubuntu Disco, CONFIG_IPV6=m and can confirm ./kernel/net/ipv6/ipv6.ko is built. Can't see why the kernel would vary on this release.
  10. I've uploaded Armbian_5.37_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_server_20171226.img.xz to megashares (md5sum a867b08685f25304847acfed7cc88803) - https://mega.nz/#!xqZgkQrB!g7HzYbusB0wifVxKbGwR-HPGETRvJMXyhu-u9SDy8pM If you want any others, let me know - I've got kernel 3.14.79 as well.
  11. I only have xenial, bionic and now disco builds - according to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases , Ubuntu 12 pre-dates Armbian on AML tv boxes.
  12. Sorry, I only use Ubuntu and had downloaded debian by mistake. If your looking for 4.20.x kernel files only, I'd get on from yadi.sk and extract the relevant files from /boot & root:/lib/modules/4.20* and put them on your working environment.
  13. I've uploaded it to megashares - https://mega.nz/#!0jxX1KBD!iws8Ojo_zJ5K7SllQ7c7xphP8SAbanMP6YypqnMnbbM File details - Armbian_5.44_S9xxx_Ubuntu_bionic_3.14.29_mate_20180601.img.xz - 706438108 bytes, md5sum 8ee5fe48fbd0a255915b696bda170cf
  14. Don't know but this post might help determining the board type (dtb to use): https://forum.armbian.com/topic/2419-armbian-for-amlogic-s905-and-s905x-ver-544/?do=findComment&comment=66212 If not, you'll have to try every dtb and be patient - even though the screen isn't working, ethernet and usb might be - see https://forum.armbian.com/topic/2419-armbian-for-amlogic-s905-and-s905x-ver-544/?do=findComment&comment=58673
  15. I've uploaded it to megashares - https://mega.nz/#!g3xiFYgb!yzBHGRfaICeFSd7l8eJgEIdb3viHXBKuaHTNMYnrf5E File details - Armbian_5.37_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_mate_20171226.img.xz - 843185252 bytes, md5sum aae9310959de43cdf3984d3105892bef
  16. I had issues with hostapd but I don't recall the exact problem. I got it down to the armbian kernel being a bit too new and perhaps a bug had crept in. The .config feature that wasnt working might have been multiple ssid's or higher speed wireless 802.11n. Work around was to get hostapd sources a couple of years old and compile it. I use rt2xxx based hardware and don't recommend the internal wifi devices.
  17. What driver/chip do you want to build? Your better off getting the correct kernel source from https://github.com/150balbes/Amlogic_s905-kernel (or armbian build) if its a popular driver not enabled in the current /boot/config. Search these forum threads for build instructions.
  18. Have a look at this post. It may be the firmware between android and Linux (/lib/firmware/brcm) is different and android may work better. You'll have to do some work in android working out which one is in use and which files (usually at least 2 files) and if they differ. Don't mix DTB's between distros (Android to Linux or Linux to Linux with a bit less caution).
  19. It's been the same issue for years, down to clone copies. I've got 2 T95 boxes which are S905X - one is p201, the other is p212. The only way to find out what your getting is to persuade your supplier to provide you with a copy of /system/build.prop from android (looking for build.product line)
  20. I'd say no modules are being loaded at boot possibly due to kernel name / magic not matching (uname -a on the install image kernel vs compiled kernel). Otherwise, check your using the same tool chain (shown with cat /proc/version on the target) but I've only seen that issue being pertinent with android phones running old kernels. Check you are using the correct source.
  21. Try this as a start - https://forum.armbian.com/topic/7930-armbian-for-amlogic-s9xxx-kernel-41x-ver-555/?do=findComment&comment=71135 . You will probably need output of dmesg from android to get your flash layout.
  22. I have two T95's - one is p201, the other is p212. Armbian_5.73_Aml-s905_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.20.2_desktop_20180129_img.xz (lima) contains the working dtb's. (see forum.armbian.com/topic/7930-armbian-for-amlogic-s9xxx-kernel-41x-ver-555/?do=findComment&comment=72165 )
  23. I've had to use DTB's from other Armbian builds to get snd_soc_meson working.
  24. I'd like to know - startx does not work for me so I have to boot into android to fix this as the screen resolution appears to be too low booting Armbian. Small script to solve would be nice.
  25. Can't help with the firmware problem as I've not run 5.0.0-rc4 but can you expand on the WiFi-regulatory.db issue and any fix. I've had intermittent issues with wifi AP's and this message in dmesg / syslog. Thanks.
