    emk2203 reacted to balbes150 in Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x (>= ver 5.55)   
    The website has added images of the Server Disco
    By the way, all the latest images for N2 now have support for direct launch from USB.

    emk2203 reacted to mitag in NanoPI M4   
    Me too, mine arrived yesterday, but the 48W switching power supply arrived today. Only the installation was a bit fiddly. I had copied Armbian_5.65_Nanopim4_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.162_desktop to an SD at the end of October and transferred it from there to an eMMC using armbian-config. In December I had packed a mSATA SSD into a USB3 case, connected it to the NanoPi and very conveniently, with armbian-config, integrated the USB SSD so that it boots from the eMMC.
    So far so good, I was satisfied with this solution. When I then installed the SATA HAT, the NanoPi didn't want to boot from a current Armbian Ubuntu, nor from an Armbian Stretch, nor from an older version, as long as the eMMC was installed at the same time. Then I installed an SD version of Friendly Core Bionic and repartitioned the eMMC. Then I could boot normally with Armbian_5.75_Nanopim4_Debian_stretch_default_4.4.174 from SD and set up the eMMC first, reboot and without SD, set up the SATA SSD in a second pass. Fiddling with a SMD tweezer to insert or remove the eMMC under the SATA HAT was a bit annoying. But with the RockPi 4 it's even narrower under the cooler.

    emk2203 got a reaction from gounthar in ROC-RK3399-PC (Renegade Elite)   
    It wouldn't hurt to ask Libre Computer and point out that their not-so-successful campaign (around 68% of target reached) might have been successful if they would have broad and stable support from Armbian. 
    That was the main road block for me - the software. The fact that they promise mainline kernel, starting from 4.19, actually made me buy it. All ARM devices are sketchy in this regard. With mainline support, I can use the device as long as I like, without falling behind and stuck with old kernels.

    Don't have this board. Untested.
