  1. Hi, My Solidrun Cubox I1-300-D has been running Armbian for quite some time (Samsung EVO SD card). However, I tried to update/upgrade, and my version was non-supported anymore (19.04?), so time for a fresh new image. I've tried three times (download image from, sha256 check, burn image with etcher, inspect file structure (looks good), and boot), but each time this happens: "Armbian universal operating system" + text ("Executing script at ...") splash screen, then a black screen, and then my TV says "no signal", and then nothing anymore. At the ethernetconnector, there is red LED on / flashing when the eternetcable is connected. I've let the box run for hours, but no effect. Keyboard eventually connected, but no effect. So ... tips? Is the Cubox I1-300-D still supported? Is there an older image (16.04?) that I can try? Does Armbian write anything to the SD card when it boots? Like "Hello, here I am" or dmesg? Because if so, I could check for that on the SD card in my laptop ... anything else? EDIT: I downloaded and installed sr-imx6-debian-buster-20191020-cli.img from, and the Cubox boots perfectly from that install. So proof Cubox, SDcard, method, power, HDMI etc are OK.
  2. Hi, I use OrangePi PC as my home samba server, as well as dlna server. It works from hdd, since I made a command nand-sata-install. I want to change the disc for a bigger one, how can I do this? If I will make rsync with all hdd will it be enough?
  3. Hi, there are invalid references inside sun50i-h5-fixup.scr, I think. I use NANOPINEO2, myself compiled linux-*-current-sunxi64_20.05.0-trunk_arm64.deb, kernel 5.4.28-sunxi64 #trunk SMP PREEMPT. amrbianEnv.txt (reduced): overlay_prefix=sun50i-h5 overlays=i2c0 uart1 uart2 usbhost1 usbhost2 usbhost3 param_uart1_rtscts=1 param_uart2_rtscts=1 For example, the row param_uart2_rtscts=1 leads to use following rows of sun50i-h5-fixup.scr: fdt get value tmp_phandle1 /soc/pinctrl@1c20800/uart2 phandle fdt get value tmp_phandle2 /soc/pinctrl@1c20800/uart2_rts_cts phandle fdt set /soc/serial@1c28800 pinctrl-names "default" "default" fdt set /soc/serial@1c28800 pinctrl-0 "<${tmp_phandle1}>" fdt set /soc/serial@1c28800 pinctrl-1 "<${tmp_phandle2}>" env delete tmp_phandle1 tmp_phandle2 There are some error messages during boot: Applying kernel provided DT fixup script (sun50i-h5-fixup.scr) ## Executing script at 44000000 tmp_bank=A tmp_pin=21 libfdt fdt_path_offset() returned FDT_ERR_NOTFOUND libfdt fdt_path_offset() returned FDT_ERR_NOTFOUND libfdt fdt_path_offset() returned FDT_ERR_NOTFOUND 10046717 bytes read in 505 ms (19 MiB/s) As a result, the RTS/CTS handshaking for UART2 is unfunctional. May be for UART1 and UART3 is the same? I think the reason is that there are no paths /soc/pinctrl@1c20800/uart2 and /soc/pinctrl@1c20800/uart2_rts_cts inside the device tree specified by sun50i-h5-nanopi-neo2-v1.1.dtb file. The right paths are /soc/pinctrl@1c20800/uart2-pins and /soc/pinctrl@1c20800/uart2-rts-cts-pins, I think. Am I right? I've tried easy modification of SCR script - handshaking is now functional, but CRC is bad. If I am right, what is the right way to correct this? Script change (how properly?), DTB change, DTBO creation, ...? Moreover, look at this reduced listing of /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/soc/pinctrl@1c20800: csi-pins emac-rgmii-pins i2c0-pins i2c1-pins i2c2-pins i2s0-pins i2s1-pins mmc0-pins mmc1-pins mmc2-8bit-pins spi0-pins spi1-pins uart0-pa-pins uart1-pins uart1-rts-cts-pins uart2-pins uart2_rts_cts uart2-rts-cts-pins uart3-pins uart3-rts-cts-pins w1_pins Why are somewhere dashes "-" and somewhere underscores "_" ? Thank you.
  4. EDIT: Just realized I posted this in the bug tracker forum. My apologies! See:
  5. I am building my own armbian image using the armbian build environment. A substantial part of the image creation time is occupied by over-and-over recompiling the kernel. Sure, it does go faster the 2nd time, but it still takes a lot of time. The goal for me is not to make a custom kernel. I am totally happy with the kernel. The goal for me is to modify the rest of the image. They installed software, config, etc. Is there a way to reuse an existing kernel for this, instead of rebuilding a new one each time? Cheers, Dolf.
  6. Hi, I'm using a cubietruck and bananapi board (both A20 devices) for a long time (They run very stable for many years). I'm using uart3 for interfacing with arduino boards using the kernel overlay. When I upgrade the kernel to a version 5+ the overlay does not work anymore and ttyS3 is not working and missing in dmesg. The behaviour is the same on both boards.

  7. I want to drive 2 SPI devices on my orangepi zero. I enabled `spi-spidev` and `spi-add-cs1` overlays and set `param_spidev_spi_bus` to 1. But by I still get only `/dev/spi1.0` available. When I add `param_spidev_spi_cs=1`, I get `/dev/spi1.1` but `/dev/spi1.0` disappears. Do I see it correctly that I can choose *either* `/dev/spi1.0` *or* `/dev/spi1.1` but not both with that overlay? How can I activate both cs pins? There are a bunch of example custom files out there, but none are meant specifically for the setup where I need spi1 (instead of spi0) and need to use a GPIO pin for cs1. And I can't really find any docs on how to write my own overlay. So any help is appreciated.
  8. Hi to all, I've a problem with my installation of Armbian.

  9. I have two NanoPi R1s, both with Armbian Buster. I want to use both as wireless access points, however the wifi seems to be problematic. It always works at first, but not anymore after updating, changing the config and rebooting. My hostapd config is the following: # # armbian hostapd configuration example # # nl80211 mode # ssid=[myssid, contains some numbers] interface=wlan0 hw_mode=g channel=6 [11 on the other one] #bridge=br0 driver=nl80211 logger_syslog=0 logger_syslog_level=0 wmm_enabled=1 wpa=2 preamble=1 wpa_psk=[random thing armbian-config generated] wpa_passphrase=[secret] wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK wpa_pairwise=CCMP rsn_pairwise=CCMP wpa_strict_rekey=1 wpa_disable_eapol_key_retries=1 ieee80211w=2 auth_algs=1 macaddr_acl=0 noscan=1 ## IEEE 802.11n ieee80211n=1 ht_capab=[DSSS_CK-40][HT20+] country_code=DE ieee80211d=1 ## IEEE 802.11n ### IEEE 802.11a #hw_mode=a ### IEEE 802.11a ### IEEE 802.11ac #ieee80211ac=1 #vht_capab=[MAX-MPDU-11454][SHORT-GI-80][TX-STBC-2BY1][RX-STBC-1][MAX-A-MPDU-LEN-EXP3] #vht_oper_chwidth=1 #vht_oper_centr_freq_seg0_idx=42 ### IEEE 802.11ac # controlling enabled ctrl_interface=/var/run/hostapd ctrl_interface_group=0 Systemd says hostapd is loaded, active and exited. The wifi is not detectable by any of my devices. If I try to start hostapd manually via hostapd /etc/resolv.conf , it says Configuration file: /etc/hostapd.conf wlan0: interface state UNINITIALIZED->COUNTRY_UPDATE wlan0: Could not connect to kernel driver Using interface wlan0 with hwaddr 18:93:7f:73:4a:ec and ssid "[SSID from config file]" random: Only 18/20 bytes of strong random data available from /dev/random random: Not enough entropy pool available for secure operations WPA: Not enough entropy in random pool for secure operations - update keys later when the first station connects wlan0: Could not connect to kernel driver Interface initialization failed wlan0: interface state COUNTRY_UPDATE->DISABLED wlan0: AP-DISABLED wlan0: Unable to setup interface. wlan0: interface state DISABLED->DISABLED wlan0: AP-DISABLED wlan0: CTRL-EVENT-TERMINATING hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface wlan0 wasn't started nl80211: deinit ifname=wlan0 disabled_11b_rates=0 Not sure whether this is a bug or an error on my side. It used to work with OpenWrt, however the problem there is the only images for it are provided by FriendlyArm (there are no official images by the OpenWrt team), and that image is still on version 18.01, which doesn't get any security updates anymore. EDIT: I maybe also should have mentioned the WiFi and hotspot options disappear in `armbian-config`. `ip addr` or `ip link` still show the wlan0 interface however. Maybe a recent update broke the driver or so? Still not sure whether I should move this to H3 bug reports. EDIT 2: I now tried to connect to a different WiFi with `wpa_supplicant`. Works with both `wext` and `nl80211` drivers (the former returns some `IOCTL` errors, but isn't used by hostapd anyway, and it still seems to work nevertheless). So the issue is probably more related to hostapd than to the driver. EDIT 3: `iw list` said it only supported CMAC-128 ciphers, so I removed any config that would use 256 bit ciphers. Also various sources suggested this was an old bug, and I needed to run `nmcli radio wifi off` and `rfkill unblock wlan` before starting hostapd, however that didn't change anything.
  10. I recently updated from very old Armbian image. The update was not smooth so I had to re-image my device with the newest version. After that USB devices cannot be detected at all. I tried USB keyboard and 3D printer (is should looks like generic serial device). Keyboard works perfectly during u-boot but stops working as soon as kernel starts. lsusb doesn't show any devices: $ lsusb -t /: Bus 09.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=musb-hdrc/1p, 480M /: Bus 08.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci-platform/1p, 12M /: Bus 07.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci-platform/1p, 12M /: Bus 06.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci-platform/1p, 12M /: Bus 05.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ehci-platform/1p, 480M /: Bus 04.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ehci-platform/1p, 480M /: Bus 03.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ehci-platform/1p, 480M /: Bus 02.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci-platform/1p, 12M /: Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ehci-platform/1p, 480M So it seems like some generic issue with USB support. Now I'm using kernel 5.4.20-sunxi, also tried 4.19.104-sunxi and some other available in armbian-config - all give the same result. Any help with making it work again is very appreciated.
  11. Hi, After building a DEV Pine64 image successfully, I wanted to build a Dev BananaPI image to update 2 banana pis.

  12. I'm looking for udev rules or some other way to read system LEDs without sudo. I tried, but I suspect it's not 100% what I need for the Duo.
  13. I noticed with the latest bionic image on the Duo it does a soft shutdown when you use the built in button. The problem is I use this button for my own uses. Can this feature be disabled and relinquish control of the button? gpioinfo | grep k1 line 3: unnamed "k1" input active-low [used]
  14. Armbianmonitor for 5.4.6: From switching between 4.19.x and 5.4.x kernels I noticed that the lower cpu frequencies got missing. It should start at 120MHz like this: root@horangepione:~# uname -a Linux honeypot2 4.19.84-sunxi #19.11.3 SMP Mon Nov 18 18:39:42 CET 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux root@horangepione:~# cpufreq-info -o minimum CPU frequency - maximum CPU frequency - governor CPU 0 120000 kHz ( 11 %) - 1008000 kHz (100 %) - ondemand CPU 1 120000 kHz ( 11 %) - 1008000 kHz (100 %) - ondemand CPU 2 120000 kHz ( 11 %) - 1008000 kHz (100 %) - ondemand CPU 3 120000 kHz ( 11 %) - 1008000 kHz (100 %) - ondemand Though on 5.4.x the minimum frequency is 480MHz. Since the default cpufrequtils file was not there I created one: cat /etc/default/cpufrequtils # WARNING: this file will be replaced on board support package (linux-root-...) upgrade ENABLE=true MIN_SPEED=120000 MAX_SPEED=1200000 GOVERNOR=ondemand It seems to have an effect because when changing the minimum frequency it clocks up as it should. Frequencies beyond 1.01GHz missing as well but that is a different story...I guess. Cheers Werner

  16. Hello, I am using up to date Armbian - Debian Buster with Armbian Linux 4.19.69-meson64 Linux version 4.19.69-meson64 (root@builder) (gcc version 7.4.1 20181213 [linaro-7.4-2019.02 revision 56ec6f6b99cc167ff0c2f8e1a2eed33b1edc85d4] (Linaro GCC 7.4-2019.02)) #5.95 SMP PREEMPT Mon Sep 2 01:21:39 CEST 2019. I have encountered Ethernet interface lockup on medium traffic (after 30s-120s when copying big files from external usb disk by sshfs - 240Mb/s). At high/medium Ethernet traffic the issue always occurs. It is most likely caused by some kernel update because I didn't have such problem before.

  17. Hi All, Just wanted to share a good story using armbian. I have used in the past 1-wire probes for temperature, and the process included decompiling, editing and recompiling dtb for my Banana Pi M1, which was not easy at all. Every firmware update deleted by changes and had to redo de recompilation. With latest kernels and armbian version, the process is now extremely easy, just edit: /boot/armbianEnv.txt Adding this lines: overlays=w1-gpio param_w1_pin=PI3 # desired pin(7th pin (GCLK) or number 4 on first column where number 1 is +3V) param_w1_pin_int_pullup=1 # internal pullup-resistor: 1=on, 0=off I just struggled a little bit to find the GPIO code (decompiled dtb and checked possible candidates). Information about temperature is here: cat /sys/bus/w1/devices/XX-YYYYYYY[this is your probe serial, if you have more they will be in /sys/bus/w1/devices/] /w1_slave You have plenty of information here, but don't need to do all they explain, just my edition has been enough:
  18. TRYING TO CLONE EMMC FROM ONE NEO CORE INTO ANOTHER. I found this link below : I still don't know if it works since i had to enter FEL MODE which i could not. maybe i am trying in a wrong way. SO how could i get a clone EMMC of nanopi neo core (taking into consideration it might not have FEL mode)? but if it does then how to enter this mode? and how to run this clone on another nanopi neo core?

  20. Hello, I have trouble with my SD Card - it goes in Read Only mode. What I have: I have Running System from the HDD (installed by nand-sata-install command) My Cubietruck is online for now, but I'm afraid do switch it off. I try to run dd command to make a backup of RO SD card and reuse image on a new SD card, but it does not succeed: # dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=10M | gzip -c > /media/dataPartition/sdcard.img.gz dd: error reading '/dev/mmcblk0': Input/output error 0+0 records in 0+0 records out 0 bytes copied, 0.00503184 s, 0.0 kB/s I read the forum regarding backup and restore and my question is following: Is there is a way to prepare new SD card and simply insert it into the running machine and reboot without starting from zero? Like set only the boot partition and clone the rest from hdd? Try to clone boot from the old SD? Make it sense to pull out old SD card and try to make backup of it on Laptop and then write this image to the new SD card?
  21. Hi, I spent several days trying to figure this out, which is a bit confusing given all the information that is available and posts and wikis saying that "Waveshare" LCDs are supposed to work, but something is still not right, hope you guys can help. What I have: ASUS Tinker Board S, flashed with Armbian_5.90_Tinkerboard_Debian_buster_default_4.4.182_desktop.img Updated to 4.19.57-rockchip via armbian-config (in order to get the fbtft* modules that were missing in 4.4). The LCD is a 3.5" original Waveshare 32a panel. I started by adding the overlay for this screen (i.e. my armbianEnv.txt has these overlays: overlays=i2c1 i2c4 spi2 waveshare35a-tinker uart1 uart2): I have a serial console connection and I could see that the overlay is getting loaded upon boot: Applying kernel provided DT overlay rockchip-i2c1.dtbo 286 bytes read in 1 ms (279.3 KiB/s) Applying kernel provided DT overlay rockchip-i2c4.dtbo 311 bytes read in 1 ms (303.7 KiB/s) Applying kernel provided DT overlay rockchip-spi2.dtbo 2224 bytes read in 2 ms (1.1 MiB/s) Applying kernel provided DT overlay rockchip-waveshare35a-tinker.dtbo 287 bytes read in 2 ms (139.6 KiB/s) Applying kernel provided DT overlay rockchip-uart1.dtbo 287 bytes read in 1 ms (280.3 KiB/s) Applying kernel provided DT overlay rockchip-uart2.dtbo 232 bytes read in 1 ms (226.6 KiB/s) Applying kernel provided DT fixup script (rockchip-fixup.scr) Adding the above overlay made the touchscreen work out of the box, however the framebuffer device didn't. In dmesg I could see the following: [ 15.706674] fbtft: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned. [ 15.712403] fb_ili9486: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned. [ 15.712696] rockchip-pinctrl pinctrl: unable to find group for node waveshare35a_pins [ 15.712708] fb_ili9486: probe of spi2.0 failed with error -22 I read the driver sources, pinctrl documentation, overlay documentation, but being a userspace coder I did not really know what to make of all this and the above pinctrl error message. The waveshare nodes were available in the live device tree, so I am not sure why this line triggers and where this "group" is supposed to be coming from: I then tried to configure the fbtft_device driver manually using the following parameters (tried to use the values from the waveshare dts): modprobe fbtft_device custom name=fb_ili9486 gpios=dc:163,reet:171 speed=15000000 busnum=2 rotate=270 fps=30 txbuflen=32768 bgr=0 width=480 height=320 The above made half of the screen to react, settig the rotation to 0 allowed to access the whole screen (tried catting /dev/random into /dev/fb0 which fills the screen with random colored pixels). I added xorg settings as suggested in the tinkerboard wiki and started xorg: Section "Device" Identifier "Rockchip Graphics" Driver "fbdev" Option "fbdev" "/dev/fb0" Option "DRI" "2" EndSection However the image looked totally distorted (I had the feeling that its drawing every other line), it was however vaguely recognizable as some text / X login screen. Just out of curiosity I removed the overlay, rebooted and again loaded the driver as above with the same result (only that touchscreen did not work anymore as expected). I am adding a full dmesg output with the overlay applied, the first fbtft load attempt is the "automatic" one and shows the rockchip pinctrl error, the second fbtft loading comes from my manual modprobe line which I pasted earlier. I have no idea where to go from here, I thought those Waveshare screens are well supported, and from what I read they seem to work for others. What am I missing? Kind regards, Jin P.S. ...couple of hours later... Turned out that the results are a lot better if width and height parameters are left out. While the dts suggests to use bgr=0, bgr=1 gives correct colors, but it seems that the gamma is totally off. I also tried taking the init sequence from the dts and passing it to fbtft_device, but I could not see any difference. So right now I ended up with the following line and results: modprobe fbtft_device custom name=fb_ili9486 bgr=1 gpios=dc:163,reset:171 speed=15000000 busnum=2 fps=30 txbuflen=32768 Original image for comparison: So, some progress at last, I'd however be still interested in fixing the pinctrl problem and understanding why the dts would not work... Next question of course - how to come up with proper gamma values?
  22. Espressobin V7 1G 800MHz DDR4 RAM 1GHz cpu purchased last week. The board starts up reliably and gets to the boot prompt ok (using minicom). I downloaded and unpacked Armbian_5.91_Espressobin_Debian_buster_next_4.19.59.img. Ran shasum and got "Ok". I dd'd it to a new Samsung SD card, dd'd it back, and ran shasum again, getting "Ok". I put the card in the board and powered it up. It finds the card and tries to boot but fails, saying: Hit any key to stop autoboot: 0 switch to partitions #0, OK mmc0 is current device Failed to mount ext2 filesystem... ** Unrecognized filesystem type ** Failed to mount ext2 filesystem... ** Unrecognized filesystem type ** Bad Linux ARM64 Image magic! I'm guessing that the problem is that I did not update uboot. I copied flash-image-ddr4-1g-1cs-1000_800.bin to a FAT formatted USB key, but this: Updated u-boot needs new default boot environment and new boot script (overwrite the one on your /boot media – needed only if you upgrade from < v5.59). This is what you need to copy/paste into u-boot prompt: is unclear. This: Copy this flash-image-ddr4-1g-1cs-1000_800.bin to your FAT formatted USB key, plug it into USB3.0 port and execute from u-boot prompt: bubt flash-image-ddr4-1g-1cs-1000_800.bin spi usb Seems clear enough. I assume that I am then to paste the list of commands that follows in at the boot prompt but the part about the "new boot script" is unclear. [Edit] I updated uboot and inserted the setenv commands (but ignored the unclear part about the "new boot script"). I'm getting U-Boot 2018.03-devel-18.12.3-gc9aa92c-armbian (Feb 20 2019 - 09:45:04 +0100) so that evidently worked. However, when it tries to boot from the SD card I get Marvell>> run bootcmd_mmc0 / ** Unrecognized filesystem type ** ## Executing script at 06d00000 Wrong image format for "source" command /boot/ ** Unrecognized filesystem type ** ## Executing script at 06d00000 Wrong image format for "source" command Marvell>> [Edit] The SD card is the same one that I used to flash the Uboot update. Is it necessary to prepare the card in any way other than to dd the image to it? [Edit] I loop mounted the image and found that it has an ext4 filesystem with an 8192 block offset. Used dd to make a copy with no offset. That copy boots. -- John Hasler
  23. Hello, I am new on the embedded system. I am using Orange Pi zero and I am having stuff with wlan configuration. I want to run the static ip for wifi on the board and reconnect after every time rebooting How I do that? I use 2 files below The eth0 works fine with this setup otherwise the wlan not active even though I used ifconfig wlan0 up but I using ifconfig wlan0 down, it got the static ip like the configuration file then I can't turn on or off using ifconfig up/down one more time Anyone help me? Thanks a lot!
  24. Hello, Recently I bought a nanopi fire 3 and installed armbian without any issue (Armbian_5.91_Nanopifire3_Debian_buster_next_4.14.133). The first thing I did was to connect the nanopi to my ADSL router in order to complete the basic configuration. Everything worked fine. Then I connected the nanopi to an Edimax gigabit ethernet switch and here is where the network problems appeared. The ethernet connection was too slow, with ping times of more than 1000ms, and an unstable behavior that made it almost impossible to connect via ssh. 64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=1004 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=1025 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=1001 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=1002 ms After many reconfigurations and reinstalls, I tried forcing the ethernet interface to work at 100Mbps, and it solved the network slugginess and unstability. ethtool -s eth0 speed 100 autoneg off Other devices connected to the same switch work fine at 1Gbps. Although with this workaround I can work for now, I still want to use my nanopi at full speed if possible. Anybody has any idea of how can I solve it?
  25. first i was able to boot my nanopi from SD card and i was able to access it through SSH. then i was trying to boot my nanopi from EMMC but it was not booting. I already installed a different OS which is specialized for Eflasher (nanopi-neo-core_eflasher_friendlycore-xenial_4.14_armhf_20190522 ) . then i followed the steps carefully: ... i_NEO_Core note : i was using commands since there is no HDMI. I typed : eflasher then i choose 1 and typed yes and waited until the OS was installed successfully and finally i powered off the nanopi, removed the SD card as mentioned, tried to power it on but i could not access it again through SSH anymore. I would if someone could help find the problem. or if someone would post the detailed steps to boot the nanopi NEO CORE from emmc using commands lines not HDMI. thanks in advance
