  1. Hi, After upgrading from Lemaker Lubuntu with 3.4 kernel to the latest Armbian with 4.9 kernel my application that reads INPUT PIN using wiringPi is behaving very strange and unstable. I simply make a pin INPUT and check the value using gpio read command. When I short the pin the value returned by gpio command changes not always immediately. Some times it takes up to 5 seconds to refresh the value. I mean, it keeps returning me "0" while the pin is shortened and only few seconds later it starts returning me "1". WiringPi is installed from this repo: https://github.com/LeMaker/WiringBP Is it still fully compatible with 4.9 kernel? Or do I need to use some other version or tune my DTB/DTS? Anyone else noticed any lags with reading wiringpi gpio input pin? Thanks
  2. Hi im trying to reproduce my old bananian server on armbian, and I’m stuck on IPSec l2tp psk. tried: strongswan installed by apt and by source compile libreswan by source compile and everytime I try to connect to server on any off the above installs I got a kernel error message about thumb2. does anyone have a IPSec l2tp vpn working with armbian in banana pi with the latest kernel?
  3. Hi, just installed Armbian 5.38 mainline (both debian server or Ubuntu server fresh installation). There are two processs eating cpu (kworker), and I read some other users have the same issue, but there is a solution? Other problem: I use this board with Bluetooth dongle to monitor my solar plant. Sometimes Bluetooth dongle disappear from lsusb or hcitool scan tell me device is busy with no reason, just unplug and reconnect usb dongle and all restart to work again (tried with two different Bluetooth dongle, this dongle works with no problem at all in another orange pi pc, no disconnection or disappear). The power supply is the same for both orange pi pc and orange pi 5v 2A. To power banana pi I used first standard microusb connector and then sata power connector directly to power the the board (read about connector power issue). This evening I will add the missing armbianmonitor -u output when Bluetooth is ok an when Bluetooth is not working.
  4. Hello, I want to use SocketCan on the Banana Pi / Allwinner A20 with the internal CAN interface. I have tested my hardware in the past using can4linux and also have some experience with Socketcan and other interfaces. Configuarion: Armbian root@bananapi:/# uname -r 4.4.1-sunxi loaded the can driver with "modprobe sun4i_can" results in "lsmod": Module Size Used by sun4i_can 5810 0 can_dev 8307 1 sun4i_can And dmesg states: [ 2632.582992] CAN device driver interface But I do not get the can0 device up: root@bananapi:~# ip link set can0 up type can bitrate 500000 Cannot find device "can0" There seems to be no can device detected by the sun4i_can: root@bananapi:~# cat /proc/net/dev Inter-| Receive | Transmit face |bytes packets errs drop fifo frame compressed multicast|bytes packets errs drop fifo colls carrier compressed lo: 4307 60 0 0 0 0 0 0 4307 60 0 0 0 0 0 0 eth0: 929191 13067 0 0 0 0 0 0 871467 4282 0 0 0 0 0 0 bond0: 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Did someone else try canbus and got it running?

  5. Hi, we've been running 5.31 with VDPAU support for a long time now, and I've tried to "apt-get dist-upgrade" to newer version of Armbian. With 5.31 VDPAU works well, with 5.38 all calls to vdp_imp_device_create_x11() fail with "Error when calling vdp_device_create_x11: 25" Demonstratable on "vdpauinfo" The only package, which did not get updated is mali userspace binary driver ( ii mali-sunxi-utils 1.0-1~armbian5.31+1 ) Also demonstratable with MPV Comparing the packages available in both devices goes like this (using https://github.com/lepe/scripts/blob/master/compare_ubuntu_apt.pl ) I don't really suspect added packages (debsums, iptables, socat, sshpass, etc...) of ruining the VDPAU, but I suspect the package "libdrm-common" which is linked with all the essential xserver/mali/libva-drm/libdrm/etc... packages. Removing it will want to remove all the dependencies and will essentially destroy X11 environment. There is no difference in loaded kernel modules (except for its versions), arch and the hardware is the same in testing. Debsums does not show any errors. In /var/log/Xorg.0.log there are differences, but I cannot point to anything suspicious. Armbian 5.31 Xorg.0.log http://termbin.com/sj2m Armbian 5.38 Xorg.0.log http://termbin.com/1eh5 Is there anyone experiencing the same issue? Or is this known bug for now? If I can provide more info to debug, please let me know.
  6. Hello, I am trying to have a serial link between an arduino and a banana pi. As a basic test, the Arduino is sending "hello" every seconds. I observe that the reception by the Banana pi is not good. I have tried , several baud rates, /dev/ttyS2 and FTDi adaptor. The best result seems to be with the FTDI adapter , at 115200 bps. But I have still a lot of errors, see below. When I plug the FTDI adapter on my laptop, it works without issues. Do you know what could be the cause of my issues? Thank you Sebastien hell»½ýhgn·ïÏÞh»½ëèu·oÝÕýemmÍÿÿý¿¿ëÏÿÿýïï»ÿ½{í»ÿ¯nïÿý{¿ûoïÿÿÿÝÿïÏíumío^huw·oMÕhello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello ^hÛ·mÍïèunìïýj»û»ÿ¯ÿï{¯ÿÿïoõõooëÿÿûÿÿ÷ÿëîÿhÙ·no]Õhello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello ·hÝï·»íýìõímo¯ÿ~Ý··¿ÿÿ}Ý··ï½ýÿwïÿ¿ÿ×ÿÿÿÿ¿ÿûûÿÿíÿ÷ÿo¿¿ÞýlenloµhenloMNhello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello«h7ë{ë¿èåímo¯¯êõ}·»_ÿíõ»Oÿ¿óíïíïïûûëï¿ûýÿûÿÿÿïïýxu|loMÞhello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hel·ë¯ÿheomïÍýèïo»ïÿîû÷mëïÿÿwûßÿÝÿÿýï¿ëê¯ÿûoÿûÿÿïïÿìo7|oÍõhullo
  7. Hello! I have problems with Banana Pi and for today - updated all packages, and I can't connect via SSH nor FTP to my Pi. I have not changed anything, but there is automatic script which dist-upgrades the whole system, it is running once a day. Till 12.34pm CET everything was working fine - from logs, even I think till past 4pm I have connected via SSH to Pi, but then after kernel upgrade (seen note after logon) and reboot I can't access Pi in any way. I've tried to see logs: connect SD card to laptop with Linux to check if there is any problem, but didn't found nothing special. I've also tried to attach HDMI monitor but no signal. Seems that last upgrade has messed up the whole thing. Not working are: SSH, FTP, apache2. Red LED is on, green for SD card access is not blinking, LED for network is blinking from time to time. But router to which the Pi is attached does not see the Pi, LED on router is on, but from router menu it has no IP. Seems that uImage file is missing, but after changing the files in /boot folder, Pi behaves the same. Any help?
  8. Hi, I have just upgraded my BananaPi from Lemaker's Lubuntu 3.4 kernel to the latest Armbian with kernel 4.9 and I can't enable 1-wire to read ds18b20. I suspect the enabling procedure has changed? What I did was: 1. bin2fex /boot/script.bin > script.fex 2. vi script.fex Appended this section exactly as it was on my previous Lemaker kernel 3.4: [w1_para] gpio = 4 3. fex2bin script.fex > /boot/script.bin 4. reboot 5. echo 600000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_min_freq 6. modprobe w1_gpio 7. modprobe w1_therm 8. ls /sys/bus/w1/devices/ empty answer In the "known issues" currently it is written that "Different GPIO numbering compared to the legacy kernel". How different is that? Do I need to use different "[w1_para] gpio = 4" value in script.bin with the new kernel? Thank you
  9. Hello, I have decided to try out Ubuntu 16.04 legacy on my original banana pi for the first time and to my surprise the first problem I noticed is that the usb ports weren't working at all. I tried two keyboards which are working fine on all my Linux computers all running on mint 18.3 (logiItech k360, and insignia nsc5011-c) they are both wireless keyboard + mouse combos they did not work at all on the banana. I previously had bananian on it prior to today and all usb ports were working fine as I was able to connect external usb hard drives to it. I decided to connect the banana to my LAN and ssh to it from my laptop, did an apt update and apt upgrade, rebooted then tried again and they still did not work. I then tried to connect my usb fat32 flash drive on one of the ports and nothing worked either. FYI: My power supply is 5volts with 3.5 amperes. I reconnected the banana to my LAN and sshed to it from my laptop, I plugged in the usb dongle for the logitech and it did not show up when I typed lsusb. Nothing I plugged in to the ports show up when I type `lsusb` Please help. Thanks.
  10. Hi.Can you help me fix this problem.Can't use usbwifi wl167g(need like reciever). Network-manager show(wifi enable) but firmware missing. Tried to install RT73_linux_STA_DRV1.0.3.6, have error, when step make, rtmp_main.c error "-march=i686". In new version desktop ubuntu wifi working, but shows slow video(I guess many improvements "use" a lot of resources).
  11. Hello to all! I'm using Armbian on my BananaPi board. I've the following version: ARMBIAN 5.38 stable Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.14.15-sunxi BOARD=bananapi BOARD_NAME="Banana Pi" VERSION=5.35 LINUXFAMILY=sunxi BRANCH=next ARCH=arm IMAGE_TYPE=user-built BOARD_TYPE=conf INITRD_ARCH=arm KERNEL_IMAGE_TYPE=zImage I need to follow these instructions to wire a radio on the board: https://www.mysensors.org/build/orange But I cannot find the script.bin file. Why? I can remember the file was here on old releases. Any help or suggestion? Thanks, Simon
  12. Hello everyone, Looks like i have some issue after last upgrade. I'm using a Banana Pi Pro as a file server at home (with samba mainly). The system is some kind of freezing after a few hours : i'm watching a movie and cannot go to the end of it. The system disappears from the network : no more access via samba/windows network, no more ssh, no more ping... Fortunately i am logging remotly so i can see that the system is still working somehow because it goes on sending syslogs. Last syslog is (the system "froze" at 20:10) : Feb 7 20:02:01 localhost CRON[3118]: (root) CMD ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly) Feb 7 20:05:01 localhost CRON[3149]: (root) CMD (command -v debian-sa1 > /dev/null && debian-sa1 1 1) Feb 7 20:15:01 localhost CRON[3203]: (root) CMD (command -v debian-sa1 > /dev/null && debian-sa1 1 1) Feb 7 20:16:09 localhost systemd[1]: systemd-logind.service: Watchdog timeout (limit 3min)!

  13. Hy When I do a Speedtest-cli with my Bananapi m1, I have 320mo for Download and 180mo for Upload. When I do with my Laptop I have 700mo for Download and 180mo for Upload. My os is Armbian. I have also a Bananapi M64 and with her I have the same results than my Laptop. Some one has an Idea? Thanks
  14. I'm running a dockerized VDR server on the BPi, still on bananian. Every time I installed armbian, I had to discover that video playback on remote devices started to stutter. Without knowing about the details, my guess is that this is owed to the fact that the mainline kernel build does not feature hw video decoding. (Though I'm not sure whether bananian had it actually.) Unfortunately I cannot use the legacy kernel build, as docker is not supported on that platform. Is there any chance to kind of enable hw video acceleration on the mainline build? I saw some posts here and there in the forum on that topic, but none seemed really having solved it definite or reliably. greets
  15. Hi everyone. When I tried plug in my banana pi to tv (rca video(AV),). I can see only boot(where label armbian). maybe need special resolution, i tried 800x600, 640x480, nothing.

  17. Hi, I am using the last image (kernel 11.5) for banana PI M1 and I successful use the nand-sata-install script. now I would like to copy the bootload to 128M SDCard Can someone help me?
  18. Hello all. I'm having a banana Pi and two days ago I had bananian OS on it. Now after searching online I decided to install armbian because it seems the most updated and more user-friendly one. One of the things that I want to do with my Pi, is to create an AP and connect other devices to it. So I read the documentation that is online from armbian site that refers on A. How to build a wireless driver? B. How to set wireless access point? Started with the A. and following all the steps, I realized that the 8192cu.ko module was already installed and loaded because when I tried to load it with insmod command it returned me: So I continued with the B. article. I cloned the suggested repository and run the go.sh script. After everything was done I had two files called : I chose to install (dpkg -i) the second one (realtek) because that's what my usb dongle needs (at least that's my opinion) After installing it, I tried to execute it by using the /etc/hostapd.realtek.conf What I got is : Here are also some other command's results that might be helpful: lsusb iwconfig uname -a /etc/hostapd.realtek.conf Also, I would like to mention that the USB dongle works properly as for the scanning of SSIDs using the nmtui tool, but if I'm going to connect to one of them with the correct password, nmtui returns : Besides all these I also tried to use and the following solutions (but without any success): https://github.com/jenssegers/RTL8188-hostapd https://github.com/pritambaral/hostapd-rtl871xdrv Also, I remember that jensseger's solution was working when I had bananian OS but it had an older kernel that I don't remember right now. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a chance of being a problem in the newer kernel and not driver's one? Any idea, hint, help is welcome. Thanks.
  19. Hi, since Igor told me to enable LCD in u-boot I was searching for a solution. In the menuconfig of Kernel 3.4 ... 3.14 I saw Device Drivers > Graphics Support > Enable driver model support for LCD/video ... Now in menuconfig of armbian with Kernel 4.7.2 I can't see this option. I see attach screenshot. Has anyone an idea how to enable LCD? I'm using LeMaker 5" LCD with CP - Touch. My board is Banana Pi with Allwinner a20.
  20. Hi! How to install postgresql-10 in ARMBIAN 5.36 (BananaPi)?
  21. Hello guys, I have an BananaPi M1 board runing armbian 5.31, already installed apache and mysql months ago, also an sata drive and the box is running smooth, I have alot of sensors around the house that are pushing new values to my mysql database, every minute, or every few minutes, but now I want to setup my cameras to use the FTP to store images in a folder accessible by apache, when cameras detect motion, can you point me in the right direction to install a FTP server I want to be able to see all the images saved by the cameras, in my dashboard, a website I made and host in this BananaPi box.
  22. Hi there, my BananaPi won't boot after a (maybe failed) apt-get update. Is there anything i could try to make it work again? While apt-get upgrade was running, I saw (iirc) in the log that the kernel directory (?) isn't empty (?). This message stayed there for quite a long time but the update process ended without any error messages. Thank you.
  23. I'm running the latest armbian on my Banana Pi M1 as a headless file/media server. My problem is that my Banana Pi would randomly stop working any time of the day. A day would not pass by without me having to reboot my server manually by pressing the reset button. There would still be network activity as the activity lights on the LAN keeps on flashing and it would still respond to my ping requests. I'd know it stopped working if I can't access the server's services anymore through its web ui (webmin, transmission, etc.) and to confirm this I'd try to SSH into it and it wouldn't connect. I tried creating a script where it would restart the LAN if it pinged the router and it didn't respond but still this didn't work. To test if the hardware is the real problem, I tried using raspbian and bananian on it and it worked well for more than 48+ hours respectively without me ever having to reset it just for me to use it remotely anytime of the day. I can just use bananania or raspbian so that I'd never have to deal with the problem of resetting it whenever I can't access it but I am after Armbian for it's continued support and updates. Is there anyway I won't sacrifice having Armbian as the OS of my file/media server? Thank you!
  24. I was wondering if I could have automount feature for every UFD or USB Hard Drives to the /media folder. As i've investigated it, it would only mount if I get to click its icon on the desktop. I'm running bananapi as my headless file/media/print server. I shared the /media folder to the network through samba and was kept wondering why I'm unable to access every flash and hard drive I'm connecting to my bananapi as it does in my Raspberry Pi (when I share its /media folder in samba). Is there anything that I could do instead of adding it to fstab and manually restarting or manually mounting it every time I connect a media to my Banana Pi server? Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thank you!
  25. Good day to all! I was wondering how would I be able to spin down the hard drives connected to my bananapi media/file server to save power and reduce wear and tear. Thank you in advance!
