  1. Hello, for a piece of advice, I have compiled kernel 4.6.1 for Lamobo-R1, USB is KO, I am switching back to 4.5.5 in the meantime.
  2. Hallo, with EXTENDED_DEBOOTSTRAP="yes" and ROOTFS_TYPE="nfs"my bananapim2 (jessie, next) has its / on /dev/nfs. After a few minutes it hangs with the error message: nfs: server x.x.x.x not responding, still trying To extend the timeout period I add timeo=30 (3 seconds) to nfs-boot.cmd. The result is: ubuntu:~# grep timeo userpatches/nfs-boot.cmd setenv bootargs "console=tty1 console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/nfs ${net_setup} rw rootflags=noatime,nodiratime,timeo=30 disp.screen0_output_mode=1920x1080p60 panic=10 consoleblank=0 enforcing=0 loglevel=6" # Banana Pi M2 root@m2-bare:~# journalctl --no-pager | grep nfs Jun 10 23:17:01 m2-bare kernel: Kernel command line: console=tty1 console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/nfs ip=dhcp rw rootflags=noatime,nodiratime,timeo=30 disp.screen0_output_mode=1920x1080p60 panic=10 consoleblank=0 enforcing=0 loglevel=6 Jun 10 23:17:01 m2-bare kernel: nfs4filelayout_init: NFSv4 File Layout Driver Registering... root@m2-bare:~# mount | grep nfs x.x.x.x:/srv/nfs/root on / type nfs (rw,relatime,vers=3,rsize=131072,wsize=131072,namlen=255,hard,nolock,proto=tcp,port=2049,timeo=7,retrans=10,sec=sys,local_lock=all,addr=x.x.x.x) Unfortunately / is mounted with timeo=7. Adding the timeo option to /etc/fstab brings no success, too. The mount command still shows timeo=7. I guessed /etc/fstab is ignored totally. But that is wrong. Changing the first column "/dev/nfs" to something like "x.x.x.x:/srv/nfs/testroot" will be recognized. How could / be mounted with additional options like a greater timeout period?
  3. I keep my Lime2 updated with apt-get update/apt-get upgrade, but it does not upgrade the u-boot, that is still an old version: U-Boot SPL 2015.07-armbian-sun7i (Oct 11 2015 - 17:17:10) DRAM: 1024 MiB CPU: 912000000Hz, AXI/AHB/APB: 3/2/2 Because the network speed is not that fast, I suspect this could be solved with a more recent u-boot. How do I update the Lime2 bootloader to a recent u-boot without re-downloading an image and re-installing all my software and data? It looks like there is already a recent u-boot.bin file on the system... # ls -l /usr/lib/nand-sata-install/a20/bootloader/linux/ -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 152 May 23 22:35 linux.ini -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 309228 May 23 22:35 u-boot.bin ...but what steps are needed to make the Lime 2 use the new bootloader?
  4. are the 1-wire modules built into legacy kernel ( 3.4.xx ) with debian jesse on an Olimex A20 LIME2 ( also the -SOM-4GB ) ? To use 1-Wire for DS18b20 temperature sensors on GPIO5 (from my fex file : gpio_pin_5 = port:PG04<0><default><default><default>) I added [w1_para] w1_used = 1 gpio = 5 to the aw_som_a20.fex file but I don't see any 1-wire modules or drivers loaded. I then used fex2bin ( in windows) to get the .bin file, copied it over and replaced the symlink from script.bin that was pointing to lime2.bin to point to my SSM_som.bin ( I changed the name of the edited one to my board name : SSM_som) Would I need to recompile the kernel to add these modules or can I add them to the current installation ? where are the bin2fex and fex2bin files stored on these images ( i used FTP to get them off, edit, put them back on ) -dd SSM_som_fex.txt
  5. Hi, I want to use my cubietruck to play the video in HD and with spdif pass-trougth and I want use mopidy. with last armbian jessie desktop : with mplayer2 : pass-trougth is ok but video is too slow with mpv : I heard a very loud noise at the output of the amplifier is not DTS decoding and is transmitted as the pcm.--> it is a kernel problem: the driver sends a sound that is not recognized by the amplifier. the SPDIF sound format is limited to 24 bits video is OK. mopidy is OK with last armbian xenial: it work because mpv is very old with mplayer2 : pass-through and video is ok but kernel panic when I put the video paused--> kernel bug solved : see with mpv : video is OK but same issue for sound. mopidy : no sound. with armbian trusty: all work but but kernel panic when I put the video paused-> kernel bug solved This issue is partially solved because work only with old version of mpv (before 0.6)

  11. Hello I have a BPi-R1 with Igor's 3.2 image ( that runs as a router (with pppoe) and nginx/php5/mysql config for my wife's blog and also with ez-ipupdate for dynamic dns I have a nasty issue... once every 2 or 3 days, my board freezes for no aparent reason It does this even if root is on SD card (only sd card connected) or HDD (I have a modified mSATA adapter to get power from 3,3V SATA power connector... I removed the 3,3V regulator and added a thick wire from the 3,3V provided by the board through the SATA connector) Also I moved from this configuration: to this fan gpio controlled (witch was very noisy): ending up with this one (no fan control): So the system is cooled by the 12v fan powered at 5v, with soctemp reporting 34,7 degrees, and pmutemp reporting 41 degrees Also the power source is stable (I had a script that monitored the voltage before it freezed... it never dropped below 5,09V) I already tested with wireless power management disabled by command (added in rc.local too) echo 0 > /sys/module/8192cu/parameters/rtw_power_mgnt since adding this line to a file named /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf doesn't work options 8192cu rtw_power_mgnt=0 rtw_enusbss=0 Even with the power management for the wireless disabled it happened once again. Also, looking at the ethernet leds on the BPi-R1, every time the freeze happenes these leds are flashing like there is activity. I took a look at the logs and I found something that could be the cause for this: In cron i have a line set for php [ -x /usr/lib/php5/sessionclean ] && /usr/lib/php5/sessionclean I found for the last few freeze times that in syslog this was the last event. Earlier events had DHCP event on last lines before freeze I read about some Out Of Memory issues with this script. Could it be that this is what is actually happening to my system? For now I removed the comment for swap in /etc/fstab /var/swap none swap sw 0 0 and I added in /etc/sysctl.conf vm.swappiness=0 (this was the last line in the file) vm.overcommit_memory = 2 vm.overcommit_ratio = 100 I'm stabbing things in the dark here so if anybody could help please do...

  13. Hello, I want to buy this display will seamlessly work with ubuntu on bananapi m1?
  14. I copied the system from a 8GB SD and installed it in OrangePi PC, which works OK withe some other distros. - No connection with SSH - No visual (The card HDMI might be broken. No visual with Raspbian either) - The LED lights up abt. 10sec after power-on on the board as well as the LEDs by RJ45 connector Tested with bot Jessie and Trusty. I inserted the Trusty card to my Linux Mint 17.3 laptop and edited /etc/network/interface.default. There is only local, no eth0. I wrote static address mantra there and tested, but no go. Fdisk told there is only one partition on the card starting from 2048. - Checked with ping and "nmap --ttl 1 -sP" in my laptop, but no OrangePi board in my home LAN, only my servers, printers etc Got to try with dynamic IP. Too tired to continue now. Next try abt. 18h from now.
  15. Hello everyone, Please beg my pardon if the question might seem “stupid†but I searched quite a bit without finding a solution. I’m using the ARMBIAN version of Debian Jessie on my Banana Pro with a great dose of satisfaction and I have noticed that the message about “system status†which appears on the first SSH Login Screen after each reboot provides a very useful insight into my system. From my researches I think I have understood that this is called “MOTD†(message of the day) and it is supposed to appear only once per session. I would like to display this message every time I open a new SSH Connection windows to my device, so to always have that information in each “Terminal Window†and not only to show them once at every reboot. Would this be possible? And if so, how exactly? Thank you for your time and your patience.
  16. hi, I plan to turn my cubietruck IR gateway, and home theater controller. The first thing to do is to be able to decode any remote control can be used with lircmd. But when I use irrecord IRW returns do anything with some remote and works with the other. While in leaving the base configuration (infrared keyboard) there is always something to send. The sunxi ir-limited driver there are thee? The second point is to emit infrared to control my devices and there is little information that is partt LIRC_GPIO seems you abandoned. I watch the IR driver in the mainline kernel and I find that it is very different. I wonder if it would not be helpful to bnackport in legacy kernel and have a more rigorous fonctionment. That the sunxi driver.
  17. Hi, I'm using armbian on my Cubieboard running from nand. I'm just curious how do you implement wear-leveling in this armbian on nand implementation on ext4? Thanks in advance. :)
  18. Hello, I have installed Armbian on my Banana M1+ and I have noticed „something“ strange in network communication. The network connector blinked rapidly even though nothing was running so I have installed iftop and found out this: iftop -i eth0 -NP Ankh-Morpork => Ankh-Morpork:51413 => Ankh-Morpork => Ankh-Morpork:51413 => Ankh-Morpork => Ankh-Morpork => Ankh-Morpork:51413 => Ankh-Morpork:51413 => I am wondering, what are these communications on newly installed system? Thank you, Regards, Petr Sourek

  20. Hi, as I need to use an OS allowing me to have Cozy and Gladys (both node.js) on my router (using them it as server) I tried to use armbian for the first time. I sucessfully installed armbian on a SD Card and boot it. My BPi-R1 is not connected to a display or other periherals (keyboard / mouse). Because I do not have those materials I sold them. It is just connected with RJ45 and has a HDD connected on the SATA port. I then connected my modem RJ45 connector to my BPi-R1 on the WAN port. I connected my computer on the first port (near the WAN one). I saw my laptop do not get an IP certainly due to the fact that LAN port seems to be manually activated. Because I just now read your text telling that : "BCM53125 switch configured as follows – looking at front of ports: |2|1|0|4|(LAN=manual) |3|(WAN=dhcp and bridged to enabled wireless adapter in (theoretical) high throughput mode with SSID lamobo and password 12345678" Then if I do not get automatically an IP on my computer how could I manually configure it ? It has no sense to activate it manually if I can at least not access the router through my LAN ports. Ecxept if I must I do it by using wifi ? Sincerely thanks and have a nice day. Miguipda ;-) P.S. : I used the Legacy version

And i am a little rookie and a little noob, so sorry if i write crap and don't understand basics some time. Recently i've try to install desktop on this board and hardware accelerated driver with partial result. I had Armbian_4.5_Lamobo-r1_Debian_wheezy_3.4.109 with installed Gnome. I install Gnome following this site: Then i started to install and configure stuff based on sunxi site. First libUMP tnen this: "make test" didn't do anything - can't create a test or something. Then i do this: in log i had the same: but i also notice the following in Xorg.0.log: Aaaand my odyssey begin. I notice the second parameter is defined in boot.scr file. There where other parameters too, preventing 2Dand 3D acceleration - "sunxi_ve_mem_reserve=0 sunxi_g2d_mem_reserve=0 sunxi_no_mali_mem_reserve sunxi_fb_mem_reserve=16". I notice the following lines are not present in version - Armbian_4.5_Lamobo-r1_Ubuntu_trusty_3.4.109_desktop (why i am not using this version - long story), so i follow this description: edit boot.cmd file and create new boot.scr without these lines and reboot then try to install Gnome (i do this on fresh installation). The problem is - i don't know if i am cursed or this @#%^&%* board is cursed, but from the site maintenance yesterday i am unable to install Gnome anymore, no mater content of boot.scr file. At first i thought this is the problem but it appears to be something with apt-get because once i received the following error - apt-get error (100) or something similar. Tasksel freeze at around 55%, i try "apt-get install gnome" it freeze at some point too. I don't know what log to loot at, i couldn't find anything related to apt-get or aptitude in /var/log/ . I even try older images where i used to install the same desktop before and the result is the same. This is my major problem right now, because instead of going forward i am way beyond the start line at the moment. About the first thing about FBTURBO(0) in Xorg0.log i understand this parameter is in script.bin which is not so easy to edit, but i am defiant... I install libusb-1.0-0-dev and use this guide to modify the file: But i notice script.bin in this board is a simlink to /bin/lamobo-r1.bin so i edited this file and change parameter - fb0_framebuffer_num, from 2 to 3. And by the way i am using nano instead of vi because me and vi are old enemies and every time i risk and using it result in disastrous results - in this case - boot loop or various problems before boot. The problem is, after i change parameter from 2 to 3 (with nano) and reboot system is unable to load desktop anymore if i do this after i installed one. If i try to install desktop with this parameter enabled i can't startx later (and it can't autoload too). I have to make fresh install again. Sorry for the long post. What am i doing wrong so i can't install desktop environment? And why setting framebuffer to 3 causing troubles when it's recommended value in sunxi site:
  24. I have Armbian 4.5 Jessy Legacy 3.4.109 running in the internal NAND and tried to do apt-get update+upgrade what bricked the device. As precaution I setup an identical system on a CubieBoard 2, where the upgrade went fine. After two days of testing on this test board, I tried it the same way on my real server but it failed. The board is not completely bricked, but network is not working anymore which limits my access dramatically. This is what I did and the output during upgrade: After the final reboot I was not able to connect to the server anymore (via network). When connecting a monitor and keyboard, I can login, the system works somehow, but I'm not able to establish network connection. When looking to the file dates in /boot and issuing "uname -a" it seems to me, that old 109 kernel is still active. This produces conflicts in /lib/modules/3.4.109-sun7i/modules.deb.bin which is probably the cause for not working network. Has anybody a clue what went wrong during the upgrade process? What is the best way to recover the system? Might it be sufficient to replace /boot/uImage ? Where do I get the 110 version (the official download image is 109)? I have a rsync (live) backup from the moment before the upgrade. But as it failed once, it will probably fail again when I try to install updates. Therefore I would prefer to fix the current state.
  25. Hi everyone, after getting Igor's image for Jessie with kernel 3.4.109 on January 10th, I did an upgrade and now I get: uname -a Linux cubieVDR 3.4.110-sun7i #10 SMP PREEMPT Mon Dec 28 11:48:43 CET 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux However, unfortunately I also get modprobe bcmdhd modprobe: FATAL: Module bcmdhd not found. According to, it does not say anything about having to do something special to obtain the module in the section called "How to set wireless access point?". Also, on another machine running kernel 3.4.108, everything is working fine (see my post in this forum). What do I need to do to get the AP working? Cheers, chessplayer
