  1. Hello, I'm currently running Gentoo on my BananaPIs (M1). I'm using one as graphical Dashboard using DirectFB. Unfortunately, DirectFB is deprecated, not anymore supported and facing some compilation issue. Time to change. I tried with SDL configured with KMS but it's crashing. I don't want to install X because it will take ages to compile without any garanty it will work at the end. So ... probably the time to change. So, is DirectFB still supported on Armbian ? If not, is SDL2 working without X support. If not, with X support ? And if so, is X
  2. Goodmorning, i would like to ask if someone have ever tried to use musl libc with Armbian. From some research appear that using it instead of glibc make programs consume a lot less ram and less space on disk. I never tried personally, but i'm curious about that because it could be especially useful for single board computer with less than 2gb of ram (like mine ). Since, from what i know, programs do not statically link to glibc, but dynamically link to a generic libc at runtime, could be possible to use musl as drop in replacement for libc, without rebuild everything? From what i kno
  3. I'm setting up a new Armbian system from a cold start. I ran armbian-config and used the personal > welcome option to set the MOTD_DISABLE options in /etc/defaults/armbian-motd. It did not do anything to the welcome screen. I asked for the header tips and updates to be excluded. Looking at the resulting /etc/defaults/armbian-motd file : netadmin@ups-monitor:/etc/update-motd.d$ cat /etc/default/armbian-motd # add space-separated list of MOTD script names (without number) to exclude them from MOTD # Example: # MOTD_DISABLE="header t
  4. Hi, Armbian gurus, I'm trying to make the build system to build image with LibreELEC kernel tree for PineH64 I heard the kernel is patched for being better at hardware decoding Here are what I have done in order: 1. Retrieve patched kernel tree from LibreELEC build system. Upload the patched kernel tree to my gitlab account. 2. Modify config/sources/families/include/ to make KERNEL_SOURCE = my previous repo; KERNELBRACH = master. To make it fetchable during bilding. 3. Modify lib/ skip aufs patch. 4. Modify lib/
  5. Hi there, I am about to use an OrangePi Zero to handle the temperature and display some information on a custom contraption related to network. The problem I have is that this contraption will be powered on and powered off at will, without notice. So... I guess that after some time, the Zero running Armbian won't be that happy about being shut off brutally. I have seen some setups with supercapacitors for Raspberry Pis, but has anyone in here tried something similar with the OrangePi Zero? Or anything else that would delay the power loss, so that the board can shutdown pro
  6. Found an old (2015) Ugoos UT3+ / UT3 Plus with an rk3288 - the neat thing about this board is it has HDMI-IN ! Also has PIP Specs: I'm was eventually able to successfully screen capture @ 1920 x 1080 ~29 fps using the Android 5.1.1 firmware V3.0.7 for UT3+!cQpl0ICS!8EgHddI3_PXQsSe-TSrkHfxdHCmkbckNWBYuLhfuA7w The firmware crashes frequently and the painful part is the IR remote is required to start recording.. so I'll be porting gentoo / armbian to this device to turn this
  7. Since I've seen some really weird disk/IO benchmarks made on SBCs the last days and both a new SBC and a new SSD arrived in the meantime I thought let's give it a try with a slightly better test setup. I tested with 4 different SoC/SBC: NanoPi M3 with an octa-core S5P6818 Samsung/Nexell SoC, ODROID-C2 featuring a quad-core Amlogic S905, Orange Pi PC with a quad-core Allwinner H3 and an old Banana Pi Pro with a dual-core A20. The device considered the slowest (dual-core A20 with just 960 MHz clockspeed) is the fastest in reality when it's about disk IO. Since most if not al
  8. Just got this error at the very end of a build. [ o.k. ] Checking git sources [ linux-firmware-git master ] fatal: unable to access '': The requested URL returned error: 504 [ .... ] Fetching updates fatal: unable to access '': The requested URL returned error: 504 [ .... ] Checking out error: pathspec 'FETCH_HEAD' did not match any file(s) known to git.

  9. I have a supported build host running, and successfully building and testing kernels for a few targets that I have examples of. I'm looking to extend my repertoire to building complete armbian images. I think I also want to use EXTERNAL and/or EXTERNAL_NEW to configure additional packages into the image. This has led me to this stanza: BUILD_MINIMAL (yes|no): set to “yes” to build bare CLI image suitable for application deployment. This option is not compatible with BUILD_DESKTOP=”yes” and BUILD_EXTERNAL=”yes” I can find no BUILD_EXT
  10. Hello together, I need help to build a new ARMBIAN - Image based on DEBIAN fort this board: Can anyone help me with building, etc. for this board? Best regards Matthias
  11. In my browsing I have just stumbled across this... Basic rundown Here are the key characteristics of the SP7021, the first member of the new PLUS1 line: Easy-to-use LQFP package.

  12. Using systemd-networkd for network management on a small cluster of orangepi r1's and an orangepi zero. All are connected to a single TP-Link 8 port gigabit switch. Version of systemd-networkd is what is shipping in the current armbian buster image networkctl --version systemd 241 (241) +PAM +AUDIT +SELINUX +IMA +APPARMOR +SMACK +SYSVINIT +UTMP +LIBCRYPTSETUP +GCRYPT +GNUTLS +ACL +XZ +LZ4 +SECCOMP +BLKID +ELFUTILS +KMOD -IDN2 +IDN -PCRE2 default-hierarchy=hybrid All four devices are configured to emit lldp and to monitor lldp.

  13. This "motd" fragment has a bug/inconsistency. # any changes will be lost on board support package update THIS_SCRIPT="armbian-config" MOTD_DISABLE="" /etc/defaults/armbian-motd has : # add space-separated list of MOTD script names (without number) to exclude them from MOTD # Example: # MOTD_DISABLE="header tips updates" This works correctly for the other "motd" fragments which contain, for instance : THIS_SCRIPT="sysinfo" MOTD_DISABLE="" but fails to disable 41-armbian-config unless the MOTD_DISABLE string includes armbian-config. I've
  14. I've installed a wireless alarm system, but I want to use all my old wired stuff from my original alarm system. I started down the road of using an ESP8266, but GPIO.INT was flaky and GPIO pins limited, so I ordered a MCP23017 and figured Why not just do everything with one NanoPi Duo? I have a few of them and they are made for breadboard prototyping. Plus with the built in Ethernet I can have wired primary and wireless backup networking. I even rolled my own Ethernet adapter since the breakout adapters cost $5+. If you have already done this and have any wisdom to share I'd like to hear it.
  15. Hi, i own a Libre Computer Le Potato (AML-S905X-CC) board and i would like to compile my own customized kernel to try patches for bug fixing and experimenting unstable "features", like lima driver. The problem is that i currently use this board as daily driver and i would like the possibility to have a backup kernel (a stable one) in case something goes wrong. So the question is: it is possible to have multiple installed kernel and decide which one boot (like GRUB behaviour) using the uboot bootloader? If it is impossible, i'm sorry for the stupid question. I don't know how
  16. Good morning all, maybe someone could enlight me I own this box who internal board is a Q+ h6 version 3.0 . Despite of what is claimed ( 4 giga ram ) really the board is 2 giga ram. But the biggest problem is that the board is stick on Q logo and doesn't go further I have access to uart and when I try to flash new firmware, DOESN'T MATTER if I use phoenixsuite or the sd I have got this message: [18.838]nand not support! channel 0 chip 0: 2c 84 64 3c a9 04 00 00 [18.843]nand not support! channel 0 chip 1: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 [18.849]nand not support! channel 0 chip 2: 00 00 00
  17. Where are the Odroid C1 images? This page is empty: What is/was the latest stable Debian? I don't need Desktop but sound should work over HDMI. Its to bad the C1 has no support anymore. Seems to be the only board that does up to 384kHz Audio.
  18. I'm currently on the hunt for the cheapest decently reliable board to use for building a glusterfs cluster. Requirements are simple: GbE, SATA port, arm64, preferably low power. While helios64 is obviously the way to go for a NAS when it lands, it's totally overkill for a setup like this and I just realized that ODROID HC2 won't fly due to being 32-bit only. Most other 64-bit boards require expansion boards for SATA, which drags up the total cost. Finally I realized that the PC Engines APU boards fit all criteria, and come with what I understand to be performant GX-412TC CPUs.
  19. I noticed that on the Duo I can select 5.5.0-rc6-sunxi in dev. Is there any idea when 5.5.0 will be the default release? Also, I noticed that there's no matching 5.5.x kernel source. I'm playing with linux-headers-dev-sunxi to see if I can compile libgpiod master which requires 5.5.0.
  20. Hi, I am testing mesa panfrost on RK3399 and I am facing an odd problem. When joint the chroot as root I get mesa working but if I join as pi, the user, I cant get it working and I've receive just a soft render (llvmpipe) How this could be fixed?? any experience??
  21. For the last few years I have been working on some hardware projects based on ARM SBCs. Every board I work with seems to have different kernel/overlay/GPIO/etc issues. So my question is - Which SBC, or chipset, has most complete and stable Armbian support? In other words if you had to pick a board to go into battle to run Armbian, without knowing any specific requirements, which SBC would it be?
  22. howdy community, I am very keen on installing motioneye on my orangepi PC - Question: can i try Orange Pi PC Beta image with Xenial and mainline kernel with the Orange Pi One and Lite. i have heard that Motioneye (not os) works very well with Orange Pi PC when installed on top of Armbian-OS. It is told to be great for multiple network cameras as they are cheap and can run 2 cameras per SBC comfortably. i got 2 orange pi pc How should i go ahead: - installing ffmpeg. Otherwise it was the raspbian instructions on armbian. - Did anybody get armbian
  23. Hi! It seems is dead (can't sign up), so may I ask here. Is anybody tried to install Android TV on a CubieTruck? I have armbian booting from Sd Card, so I want to have similar SD Card (128Gb), but with Android TV. So - is this possible? What version of Android TV we can use? links appreciated!
  24. I have been playing around the Rock Pi S from radxa, and am stumbling at enabling the I2S output using a device tree overlay. (Building using current Armbain that uses @piter75's kernel branch) As per the data sheet and pinout, `i2s_8ch_0` should be broken out to the GPIO, but I don't seem to be getting far enabling it via the device tree. Any inputs? This is what I am playing around with atm, but `dmesg` doesn't show anything helpful atm, and no "I2S-Card" device turns up. Tried disabling the inbuilt audio codec ( connected to `i2s_8ch_2`), but still no dice. The closest example
