  1. Hello people, I have an Asus Tinker Board S and decided to use the Mainline Armbian for this board, love the new panfrost driver but seems it is glitching all over the place, icons in the menu disappear and reappear when mouse hovers over them, tick boxes do not show if they are ticked and only flicker when mouse is over them and applications menu keep redrawing all over when trying to use among the most prominent problems. Other operating systems work well in this matter. Anyone else is having these problems with the mainline 5.4.28 kernel build?
  2. Is it possible that there have been some image changes that broke the XR819 wifi completely? The available images for download on the Armbian page (5.3 server, and 5.4 minimal) as well as a custom built "legacy" branch linux-4.19 image all show the same behavior, The wlan0 interface is not active and it's not possible to bring it up. And dmesg shows that module has been initialized but not much more. Armbianmonitor support info: 5.3.9 official buster server image: 4.19.88 self-built, two days ago, legacy branch: Everything below is from the offic
  3. I am in the middle of porting a proof of concept app from Raspberry Pi/Raspbian to its (hopefully) permanent home on Orange Pi PC/Armbian, and I am really loving the new environment. Now I need to get my non-standard HDMI display working. It's a 800x800 circular display from China that works fine on my Raspberry Pi once I figured out what the HDMI timings were (they weren't even on the data sheet!). As I learned when configuring the RPi the display does not report its resolution correctly, so it won't work out of the box, but in Raspbian you have the option to force the system to u
  4. Hello everyone. From some time ago I´m working in an application that comunicates with some external devices, using GPIOs. With this aim, I´ve programmed my own driver with its methods, whose are automatic loaded at startup. My hardware is a BananaPi m2u, and kernel version is 5.4.35-sunxi. Now, I´ve to read an external HW that has 2 data lines, whose idle state is "high" and once per minute sends a packet of 26 bits of data. One of these lines is a Data0 signal, and the other is Data1 signal. Every pulse is around 100us, and there is an idle interval of a
  5. Hello, my BananaPi M1 sometimes just stops working. The maximum uptime is 5 days. Usually the time is shorter. The system simply hangs. I can no longer access the system via SSH. When I connect a monitor to HDMI, nothing is displayed, so I can log in. I have connected an external hard drive that is self-powered. I know the stories with the power supply. I have run ' stress -c 2 -m 1 '. The system remains stable.

  6. Hi all, First place, sorry if it´s a very basic question, I was searching info and reading topics, but I did not found a solution for my problem. I`m working with Linux version 5.4.29-sunxi I´m trying to compile my own char device driver. I noticed that I forgot adding kernel-headers in my build, so I tried to add them via apt install linux-headers-next-sunxi After that, I can see a new directory /usr/src/linux-headers-4.19.62-sunxi but if I´m not wrong, modules compiled with this headers won´t work in my kernel, cause head
  7. Armbian 5.90 stable Ubuntu bionic Orange Pi PC The Login Screen is very broken and after login, the Screen wents black and only the mouse Pointer is to see.
  8. Since some H6 boards are marked as officially it would make sense to move H6 forums from Development to Bugtracker and remove the WIP hint on top.
  9. Would be nice to see bullseye image for NanoPi NEO 2
  10. 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 nothi
  11. 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?
  12. 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 fd
  13. EDIT: Just realized I posted this in the bug tracker forum. My apologies! See:
  14. 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.
  15. Since - in my eyes - at least - there is a likelihood of confusion regarding the "Supporter" tag of members that actually (recurring) donating to the project. People could think "Supporter" means staff member that actually support people with their issues. The real staff rank, Moderator and Administrator to say, is "hidden" in their individual profiles. Since I like the idea of flat hierarchy I do not suggest to make the actual staff visible in forum postings but simply rename the Supporter to something like "Donator" to make it clear that these people donated to the project but are not necess
  16. 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. Autoboot in 1 seconds, press <Space> to stop switch to partitions #0, OK mmc0 is current device Scanning mmc 0:1... Found U-Boot script /boot/boot.scr 3708 bytes read in 34 ms (106.4 KiB/s) ## Executing script
  17. 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
  18. Hi to all, I've a problem with my installation of Armbian. Currently i'm using Armbian Bionic on my pine A64 kernel version: Linux pine64 5.4.20-sunxi64 #20.02.1 SMP Mon Feb 17 02:37:37 CET 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux When i attach my external hdd it doesn't show in /dev neither i can find it in the logs; daniele@pine64:~$ lsusb Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundati
  19. 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
  20. 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, 12
  21. I also like to keep things in order, but forum and this project is too big for me since a long time ago. Keeping this thing organised can only be done together. I appreciate your willingness to do your share! #armbian channel is unofficial for one very banal reason It doesn't have a recording device -> I tried to fix this once - by reaching out to IRC server staff to acquire OP status which is needed to install a bot, now its years ago, but failed. Then this task simply faded off the radar. It has been more than 25 years since I was installing IRC bots
  22. Hi, After building a DEV Pine64 image successfully, I wanted to build a Dev BananaPI image to update 2 banana pis. Unfortunately I have this error (using this commit id : e7aeffb1) : Setting up nplan (0.36.3) ... Setting up networkd-dispatcher (1.7-0ubuntu3.3) ...

  23. As I am a new Moderator and I am unfamiliar with this particular board software (apparently called "Invision Community"), I went looking for some docs... Came across The first thing I noticed is that it is proprietary software. Which I think is very out of character for a F/LOSS project at least alluding to the name Debian. Which carries a number of connotations, at least in my mind... Which is a whole another discussion, however... Secondly, a quick read through that Wikipedia article quickly reveals a numbe
  24. 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.
  25. In the TV boxes section, it is quite calm and there is enough of the standard option. If the user has the first message on the forum, all messages are put in the moderation queue. If there is at least one approved message, the user can write directly to existing topics. If I see that his messages are spam or violate the rules, I delete them. As far as I understand, for those who have few messages (3-5- ?)- creating a new theme is put in the moderation queue. So far, there have been no problems. I read all messages in the " my " section and can see where there are hidden ads and delete such mes
