    y52 got a reaction from TRS-80 in Making EspressoBin V7 work in 2022 ...   
    I've made some advancement in debugging "armbian-ramlog & armbian-truncate-log" complex.
    Your /usr/lib/armbian/armbian-ramlog has a syntax error in the array expression 
    ${XTRA_RSYNC_TO[@]+"${XTRA_RSYNC_TO[@]}"} The 1st array lacks a closing } curly braces. Secondly, I can't figure out, why the same array is duplicated.
    Even if you parse a variable XTRA_RSYNC_TO=(--delete) from /etc/default/armbian-ramlog, it will result in :
    --delete+--delete Another problem comes, when you call 
    /usr/lib/armbian/armbian-ramlog write >/dev/null 2>&1 from /usr/lib/armbian/armbian-truncate-logs. It actually produces the error:
    # /usr/lib/armbian/armbian-truncate-logs /usr/lib/armbian/armbian-truncate-logs: 23: /etc/default/armbian-ramlog: Syntax error: "(" unexpected I believe there is a syntax error in the way the call is made, where the XTRA_RSYNC_TO=(--delete) variable is not accounted for.
    Could you give it a glance?
    Otherwise, if the XTRA_RSYNC_TO=(--delete) variable is remarked in /etc/default/armbian-ramlog
    and "--delete" option is hard coded in /usr/lib/armbian/armbian-ramlog, the complex starts running without raising exceptions.

    y52 got a reaction from Igor in rebuild rtl8189es from GIT for OPI+   
    Thanks to the Armbian team for the headers scripts generation bug fixing and the minor version 5.11 release.
    I was able upgrading the 5.10 image to 5.11 and building the 5 october .
    Here is a recipe :
    root@orangepiplus:~# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
    root@orangepiplus:~# cd /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    root@orangepiplus:/usr/src/linux-headers-3.4.112-sun8i# make scripts
    root@orangepiplus:~# cd /usr/src
    root@orangepiplus:/usr/src# git clone https://github.com/jwrdegoede/rtl8189ES_linux/
    root@orangepiplus:/usr/src# cd rtl8189ES_linux
    root@orangepiplus:/usr/src/rtl8189ES_linux# git checkout 080f2aaf6bc8e08eeb3b51f0b8c377eae1ea7ed7
    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jernejsk/OpenELEC-OPi2/openelec-7.0/packages/linux-drivers/RTL8189ES/patches/RTL8189ES-000-change-build-settings.patch
    root@orangepiplus:/usr/src/rtl8189ES_linux# patch -p1 < RTL8189ES-000-change-build-settings.patch
    make ARCH=arm KSRC=/usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) CROSS_COMPILE=
    The "make install" doesn't run. I copied it manually :
    cp -a 8189es.ko /lib/modules/3.4.112-sun8i/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8189es/
    root@orangepiplus:/usr/src/rtl8189ES_linux# modinfo 8189es.ko
    filename:       /usr/src/rtl8189ES_linux/8189es.ko

    vermagic:       3.4.112-sun8i SMP preempt mod_unload modversions ARMv7 p2v8

    I enabled the Monitor mode in the Make file.

    It even shows up in the module capabilities:
    root@orangepiplus:/usr/src/rtl8189ES_linux# iw list
            Supported Ciphers:
                    * WEP40 (00-0f-ac:1)
                    * WEP104 (00-0f-ac:5)
                    * TKIP (00-0f-ac:2)
                    * CCMP (00-0f-ac:4)
            Available Antennas: TX 0 RX 0
            Supported interface modes:
                     * IBSS
                     * managed
                     * AP
                     * monitor   <----
                     * P2P-client
                     * P2P-GO
            software interface modes (can always be added):
                     * monitor

    Unfortunately, the switch to monitor mode doesn't run :

    "iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor"

    oot@orangepiplus:/usr/src/rtl8189ES_linux# iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
    Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
        SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not permitted.

    Despite this, the positive bug fix for this driver is that the wlan interface shows up correctly in the single instance and is not duplicated:

    root@orangepiplus:~# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.

    tunl0     no wireless extensions.

    wlan0     unassociated  Nickname:"<WIFI@REALTEK>"
              Mode:Managed  Frequency=2.412 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated  

    I haven't tested the driver performance and the packets drop rate.
    I believe it is worth integrating in the new release.
