  1. bananapi m1 armbian 5.20 configure smplayer acelered ? thanks
  2. Hi I have a suggestion to modify update-mot.d script 30-sysinfo. It reports battery chargin or not depending on percentage (if <100% then is charging): # Battery info for Allwinner # kernel 4.4+ axp_dir="/sys/power/axp_pmu" if [[ -e "$axp_dir" ]]; then status_battery_connected=$(cat $axp_dir/battery/connected) if [[ "$status_battery_connected" == "1" ]]; then status_battery_charging=$(cat $axp_dir/charger/charging) status_ac_connect=$(cat $axp_dir/ac/connected) battery_percent=$(cat $axp_dir/battery/capacity) # dispay charging / percentage if [[ "$status_ac_connect" == "1" && "$battery_percent" -lt "100" ]]; then status_battery_text=" charging" elif [[ "$status_ac_connect" == "1" && "$battery_percent" -eq "100" ]]; then status_battery_text=" charged" else status_battery_text=" discharging" fi fi fi However, at least on banana pi M1 (A20) it can be below 100% and not charging, Seems that the PMU doesn't charge just for 1-2%. So we can just use driver info to check if it is really charging, like this: # Battery info for Allwinner kernel 4.4+ axp_dir="/sys/power/axp_pmu" if [[ -e "$axp_dir" ]]; then status_battery_connected=$(cat $axp_dir/battery/connected) if [[ "$status_battery_connected" == "1" ]]; then status_battery_charging=$(cat $axp_dir/charger/charging) status_ac_connect=$(cat $axp_dir/ac/connected) battery_percent=$(cat $axp_dir/battery/capacity) # dispay charging / percentage if [[ "$status_ac_connect" == "1" && "$status_battery_charging" == "1" ]]; then status_battery_text=" charging" elif [[ "$status_ac_connect" == "1" && "$status_battery_charging" == "0" ]]; then status_battery_text=" charged" else status_battery_text=" discharging" fi fi fi Hope someone else finds it useful
  3. Hello everyone activating legend movie MPlayer vdpau? banana pi m1
  4. Hi guys, I'm getting this error while trying to boot my Banana Pi with an SD card. Hit any key to stop autoboot: 0 switch to partitions #0, OK mmc0 is current device Scanning mmc 0:1... Found U-Boot script /boot/boot.scr 2447 bytes read in 211 ms (10.7KiB/s) ##Executing script at 43100000 Wrong image format for "source" command SCRIPT FAILED: Continuing... scanning bus for devices... Found 0 device(s). SCSI device 0: Device 0: not available [...] I'm coming from using Lubuntu with no problems for nearly a year. The SD card works no problem (or at least it worked perfectly fine with Lubuntu). I also tested with a way faster microSD 64GB I usually have in the GoPro, with the same result. What should I do to continue? I reckon this must be a n00b mistake, I must be missing something...
  5. Hello ! I recently reimaged my BPi M1 with the vanilla headless Debian Jessie from Armbian. But I have two problems: Main problem (the worst): I have a RAID SATA to USB enclosure (this one: BS-EHD-35/DUALB). After some times and randomly, the drives stops spinning and the enclosure stops itself. I've disabled any power management on hard drive, setup a cron job to write a file every 5 min, disabled autosuspend in usb core... I didn't have this problem with the legacy kernel. I cannot downgrade to it, because I'm using BTRFS with some non-compatible extensions. Note: this is a server with apache, Deluge, Plex and Sonarr. Side problems (I can live with if the first is OK): Also, if the drive isn't connected, the BPi won't boot, and after the enclosure stops, the BPi hang and need a force reset to remount the drive and restart services. Tried a udev rule to automate it, but no luck. Don't understand why the enclosure stops itself, it's not really documented, and tried everything I could think. Thank you, Arno
  6. Hi Thank you in advance for the help and the magnificent work ??Has "(BananaPi M1)" KVM kernel supports in Ubuntu Mate 16. I would like to virtualize Windows XP or Windows 7 in "(BananaPi M1)" a social project for non-profit. I'm about to go crazy is this compatible with this board (BananaPi M1) Thank you

  8. Hi! Is PMP support build-in in newer armbian images? I installed ARMBIAN Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 4.4.3-sunxi on my banana pi. Or is a recompile still needed? With the default image i can see a dmesg "error ahci-sunxi 1c18000.sata: controller can't do PMP, turning off CAP_PMP". If recompile is needed can someone please post a link where to find step-by-step instructions how to recompile armbian with PMP support? Is the guide on htpcguides.com still correct? Thank you
  9. Hello I have a bananapi m1 with armbian Linux bananapi 4.3.3-sunxi #3 SMP Mon Dec 28 11:27:16 CET 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux I need to add serial ports so I think I need to rebuild a kernel as described here: http://forum.armbian.com/index.php/topic/371-cubietruck-uart-3-4-7-pin-out-serial-ttys/ I follow the step described here: http://www.armbian.com/using-armbian-tools/ But when I run the compile.sh script, I don't found banapim1 in the list of device, I see banapim2, bananapipro, banapim2plus but not my deice. Could you indicate which ne must be selected? Thank you
  10. Hi! I plan to use a Banana Pi as a file server and install the system on the hard drive. The documentation page says: SATA/USB: pre-partitioned SATA or USB storage How does the nand-sata-install script work? Will I need to pre-partition my hard drive or will the script do it? Will it just partition it as one big ext4? Is it possible to make at least two partitions, one for the system and one for the files?

    Disable leds

    Hi, 3 flashing led diodes of my Banana Pi make good party atmosphere when I want to sleep. what are ways to disable led diodes on Banana Pi? Is there a way to disable them without recompiling kernel? Can it be done by editing script file in /boot? What exactly do I need to change to switch them off? Thank you very much!
  12. Hello, I want to buy this display https://www.adafruit.com/products/2354 will seamlessly work with ubuntu on bananapi m1?
  13. I have a BananaPi running 4.2 (with Wheezy) and I am getting poor network speed. When testing download a file from the internet, I am averaging ~500k/s. I have another BananaPi running 3.4 (also with Wheezy) and on that board, I am averaging ~3MB/s downloading the same file from the same location. I tested this multiple times and the results are pretty much the same. Any idea why network performance is so poor on 4.2? Thanks.
  14. Hi all, I've been using a banana pi as a home server since forever. It's currently running bananian with a legacy kernel. I want to use docker to make it cleaner to use so mainline is needed. My banana pi is running off a 256Go SSD (SATA) and connected through a Gigabit Switch (that's why I did not find many replacement over the years, both low power, SATA and Gigabits are hard to find even with Hardkernel stuff). So first what's running on my server now : * nzbget * nfs server * nginx as reverse proxy * nginx + php * MQTT server (Mosquitto) * MQTT relay server (with mqttwarn) * homemade domotic stuff For all of this, I guess docker will be ok. Next I'm also using some stuff over GPIO : * a DHT22 sensor * a Nokia 5110 LCD * two pushbuttons * An Uart connected to an arduino (for domotic nodes) I have another banana pi so I installed latest armbian and made some tests. I was using WiringBP (https://github.com/LeMaker/WiringBP) and it seems to be still working with a mainline kernel so the DHT22, Nokia LCD and pushbuttons are OK (even if I was using SPI for the nokia display with legacy kernel and had to bitbang with mainline). For the uart, If I read well I'll have to edit the dtc to enable it (I was using the J11 headers for ease of use). I'll try to read more and do that. So for all that it should work. No the hard stuff : * I was using the csi camera, it seems it's not supported with mainline ? * I also wanted to replace my smallish nokia LCD screen with a larger one (to tell the truth, wife's order), so I naturally thought of using Lemaker screens : 7' or 5' . Again it seems it's not supported. Is there any workaround, alternative ? Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post.
  15. Hi, is the image for the M1 and Pro the same? Because after downloading, the file name is "Armbian_5.04_Bananapipro_Debian_jessie_4.4.3". On the download page for M1 and Pro the download links point to the same file. Looking at http://mirror.igorpecovnik.com/i see only 5.00 for the M1. Another question i have: After the login i see 12 updates and i should run APT. Since years I'm using aptitude since it is the preferred and newer program for Debian. So the question is if i can safely use aptitude? Or is there something pre-installed and i mix up the package management. I will never understand why every tutorial on the web is using APT.
  16. Hallo, I have got the Banana Pi (no Pro) with Armbian Trusty Desktop and Legacy Kernel 3.4.109 installed. All updates done. Problem: No Sound on HDMI Output. Any suggestions? Known Problem? bewoco
  17. Hello, First of all thanks for the very nice dist, it's clean and optimized. Unfortunately the Banana Pi is unbootable after having done the following: Migrate the root fs to my USB drive and make it bootable with the nand-sata-install script Change the hostname (modify /etc/hosts, modify /etc/hostname, run /etc/init.d/hostname.sh, reboot) run apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade, reboot Each time the Banana Pi could not boot anymore, and that happened with both Jessie and Wheezie images. I can't get any screenshots of the boot screen because it's a headless server. Any ideas? mk16
  18. Hi, I have the following problem when a extern USB disk is connected the Banana Pi won’t boot., if I unplug the USB disk the Banana PI boots from the SATA disk fine. I’m using debian jessie and use the nand-sata-install to boot from SATA disk Kind regards,
  19. Hi, I read about the Allwinner Security System Cryptographic Accelerator. Is somebody actually using it with cryptsetup or OpenVPN? Is it powerful like Intel AES-NI? Thank you! Kind regards, matt
  20. Hi, yesterday I moved my root partition to a 128GB SSD by running "nand-sata-install" Everything works fine.

  21. Hello , I have setup a banana pi with armbian: Linux bananapi 4.3.3-sunxi #3 SMP Mon Dec 28 11:27:16 CET 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux I wuld like to setup a wifi access point from a rtl wifi dongle. Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8192CU 802.11n WLAN Adapter First, I have tried with bananian and it was working perfectly. But I have also a tv adapter not working with bananian, kernel 3.4 seems not support it. With armbian vanilla, the tv adapter is supported but it seems to have an issue with the wifi dongle driver. When I start hostapd-rt, I have the following errors: drv->ifindex=5 l2_sock_recv==l2_sock_xmit=0x0x766b0 ioctl[SIOCSIWMODE]: Invalid argument Could not set interface to mode(3)! Could not set interface to master mode! rtl871xdrv driver initialization failed. wlan0: interface state UNINITIALIZED->DISABLED wlan0: AP-DISABLED hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface wlan0 wasn't started Do you have already ssen this issue? I have seen that it is possible to build a driver provided by realtek. Do you think it culd solve it? I could try it but I need help how to do it. I supose I need to follow this page: http://www.armbian.com/using-armbian-tools/and include the realtek driver? Thank you
  22. Hello community, Kernel 4.3.x should have support for DMA engine on A20 boards, see: http://linux-sunxi.org/Linux_mainlining_effort#Merged_into_4.3 Does / should this also improve the SATA write performance? After update to kernel 4.3.3 from apt.armbian.com I cannot see any big write Performance increase... thanks for comments... best regards and a happy new year... holsteiner
  23. Hello On my Banana PI infrared receiver is not detected at bootup. I'm running armbian 4.7 jessie. The only /dev/input device is that of axp20x-pekj, which I undestand to be a power controller. My issue is similar as found in this thread: http://forum.armbian.com/index.php/topic/475-bananapi-r1-no-infrared-device/ Except ofcourse the board is different From the other thread I gather I need to change something in regards to dtb-s, but I guess as the boards are different using the same one as mentioned is not a good idea.
  24. Hi, First time user here. I'm using the legacy Jessie build with kernel 3.4.109 Kernel. OTG is enabled and generally working. However, with some USB devices we are getting the following message with dmesg: WRN:L2705(drivers/usb/sunxi_usb/hcd/core/sw_hcd_host.c):ERR: sw_hcd_schedule, best_end [ 663.633167] WRN:L2951(drivers/usb/sunxi_usb/hcd/core/sw_hcd_host.c):ERR: sw_hcd_schedule failed [ 663.641968] cannot submit datapipe for urb 0, error -28: not enough bandwidth This only happens with some USB devices. My USB headphones work fine but a USB DAC for music does not. I remember reading somewhere the OTG on the BananaPi seemed limited in terms of actual connection speeds. Are there any specific restrictions on the OTG? Any ideas how to solve the issue? Thanks, Nuno
  25. Before installing this Armbian legacy kernel (3.4.109), I was using a Bananian-based image with OpenMediaVault (the so called BanaNAS image) and was getting regular 30MB/s transfer rates to my Samba shared hard drives (USB and SATA). My PC and Banana are connected through a gigabit switch, and working at 1Gbps. After installing and configuring the new Armbian image, I notice my transfer rates were now around ~23MB/s which was odd. After trying to change some smb.conf parameters and getting nowhere, I decided to test just the network performance by setting up a simple web server on my PC and doing a wget -O /dev/null http://<my PC-IP>/test.zip of 3Gb. The values were the same. Testing on another PC and Chrome, I got 40MB/s. So clearly my PC was fine but the Banana wasn't. Today I burned and installed 4 OS images and repeated the test above. I did it right after the initial boot ended without any further updates: - OpenMediaVault-Bananian 3.4.104: 36.6MB/s - Bananian 15.08: 36.7MB/s - Armbian legacy: 25.9MB/s - Armbian vanilla: 35MB/s Clearly there is something wrong with this image. However, I have no idea on what to do to find out how to fix it. Are there any configuration I can look up on the Bananian image and compare to yours? Thanks!
