    Noisy PSU

    Hello, Since few days, my PSU makes a high-pitched noise. As my NAS is installed in my living-room, it is annoying. I have changed my PSU three weeks ago, it was good during these three weeks, but it comes suddenly noisy... Does anyone else has the same issue ? And any ideas on how to fix this ? Thanks
  2. I once had openmediavault (nas software) and citadel-server (groupware software) running together on an x86 computer with Debian operating system. When I try this on Helios64 running armbian (Debian 10 Buster) and kernel 5.8, then the package manager does not allow it. That means, when I start with an installed openmediavault and want then to install citadel-server as well the package manager removes openmediavault first. Does anybody have an idea or a solution to the problem?
  3. I just received my Helios64, I immediately checked it for the Magjack center point to ground concern, and mine tests that it is connected. Is there a revision number on the board which can be used to identify the clean point between the pre and post fix boards?
  4. Getting system crashes and instability, including a loss of HD I/O, during very large file transfers. This happens over the network, whether using SCP, FTP, or SMB. I'm a hobbyist, and am no coder or developer, so other than Googling, I have no practical knowledge to pull on. When the problem started occuring, I opened two PuTTY SSH interfaces as root - one with htop, and another with "dmesg --follow" to see what was going on with the system, and this is what happened: dmesg readout at file transfer crash (using SMB this time): Terminal lost connectivity at this time. On the PuTTY htop session: CPU frozen, a few cores max, temp in the high 50's (58 on crash). Terminal lost connectivity at this time also. When this happens, if the system is able to continue, no more HD activity is able to occur. If the KOBOL softlocks, I have to hard powerdown (hold the power button until it turns off). I'm running 4 HD's in a RAID5, through OpenMediaVault, and one manually mounted HD as a spare drive. The RAID5 is XFS, the spare drive is EXT4. The RAID5 drives are NAS drives, not all the same though, and the spare drive is an old desktop drive. Any ideas or help would be appreciated . . . Google's results are varied and inconclusive so far.
  5. Hello, Is there a way (maybe using sysfs) in Linux to manage the brightness of the LED in the front of the NAS ? I found no information about this in the wiki: https://wiki.kobol.io/helios64/led/ or https://wiki.kobol.io/helios64/front-panel/ Thanks.
  6. Is it possible to boot from USB-Stick instead of micro-sd-card? I have the apprehension that the micro-sd-card-slot could break if I use it to often. If it’s possible, how can I do this? Thanks, Jaques-Ludwig
  7. Hello, How can I get a effective shutdown with the battery with legacy 4.4 (it always restarts) (2.5 Gbps OK) or How can the 2,5 Gbps performance issue be solved in 5.8 ? (that can shutdown OK) Which one is the easiest to address and solve for a beginner like me using OMV? Thank You! David

  9. I have zero room on the root of my helios64? I literally just installed OMV made a raid 5 and setup my shares. Afterwards I setup Transmission and suspect that might be my problem. Any thoughts to locate exactly what is killing my flash memory. I tried df -h and du -sh /. this didn't point me to anything specific.
  10. Since there is a thread about adding ZFS support to the U-Boot build, I thought I'd post a similar request for btrfs. I was looking through the helios u-boot repo a few days ago and noticed that it isn't built with btrfs support. While I could make a separate ext4 /boot partition, it would be convenient to have the entire eMMC formatted as btrfs. This allows for me to make easy and fast backups using btrfs send/receive, and also allows for snapshotting prior to upgrades (via e.g. snapper), and rolling back to a different snapshot at boot. My turris onmia router uses u-boot with btrfs native root, and I've used the snapshot rollback support a couple of times. They have a fancy snapshot selection that can be done via the reset button without a serial console, but just having the ability to select previous snapshots at the u-boot menu would be quite convenient. I believe all that is needed is to enable CONFIG_CMD_BTRFS. https://github.com/u-boot/u-boot/blob/832bfad7451e2e7bd23c96edff2be050905ac3f6/cmd/Kconfig#L2047 Thanks for your consideration!
  11. This main thread has been locked. Thanks to the Armbian team, we now have our own Kobol club (kinda sub forum) dedicated to our products (Helios64 & Helios4). So now you are encourage to create individual threads for new issue, discuss feature, share setup, etc... This will help to improve overall readability. Note : Before asking a question please insure the information is not already available on Helios64 Wiki or addressed in a previous post in this forum. Latest Build : Check : https://dl.armbian.com/helios64/ Archived Build : Check : https://archive.armbian.com/helios64/archive/ Known Issues : Work-in-Progress images, not all board features are supported yet. Find software support status on our wiki or our here on the forum

  13. Hello My Helios64 arrived two weeks ago, after a loooong trip through the Silk Road all the way down to South Europe. First thing I want to give a GREAT THANK YOU to the people at kobol shop support, as they have helped me with my transport/forwarded/ carrier nightmare loop: the address is in Chinese-no address specified-contact the sender-won’t give you your parcel-please call again- no address specified.... So. After reading a good slice of the wiki I couldn’t find a comprehensive manual/article about the simplest usage of the front panel. Glad if you can point me to such information. The principal source of confusion for me are the comments section of the kernel 4.4/5 versions, where there are some mentions about power on/off problems. The questions I have right now are: What does each light mean? I’ve read blue means ok, red means problem, in reddit they have pointed out that the System blue light blinking is normal. How does the power on/off button behave ? I’m confused about the PSU/stand by/ WOL/on states, can I damage the OS with a long press? Does a short press wake up the system if WOL is not configured? The reset button : is it equivalent to a software reboot? What is the procedure to hot-swap drives? Does it need some panel button pressing? Is it done via software? Thank you for your help.
  14. Hi all, currently i'm working on upcoming Helios64 board. For RK3399 board there are 2 families, what are the differences between them? I've been following discussion on github and this forum for few months but still unsure which family i should use.
