  1. I know, using an old Banana Pi M1 for desktop doesn't make sense at all. I would prefer having help or/and advice clearing the problems I've encountered, instead a discussion why I'm testing a desktop environment on a BPi M1. Tested with Armbian 21.08.01 Buster / 5.10.60 After the initial boot nano or / and armbian-config doesn't work. A reboot solves this issue. After the second boot I changed verbosity to 7 and console to serial. All other changes where made throu armbian-config. Changing Pi's name works, but changing console's layout doesn't. Never mind, that is a minor problem, which can easily solved by hand. So I did "firmware upgrade" and rebooted my pi. dmesg: apt list lightdm lightdm/oldstable 1.26.0-4 armhf I proceed installing armbian desktop throu armbian-config. To ensure, that the installation will have all their dependencies installed, I quit armbian-config and reboot my pi. The armbianmonitor -u from this boot: http:// http://ix.io/3yvT This dmesg: Console-Output: systemctl status lightdm.service ● lightdm.service - Light Display Manager Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/lightdm.service; indirect; vendor preset: Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sat 2021-09-11 01:45:59 CEST; 10min Docs: man:lightdm(1) Process: 593 ExecStartPre=/bin/sh -c [ "$(cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager Sep 11 01:45:59 deskpi systemd[1]: lightdm.service: Service RestartSec=100ms exp Sep 11 01:45:59 deskpi systemd[1]: lightdm.service: Scheduled restart job, resta Sep 11 01:45:59 deskpi systemd[1]: Stopped Light Display Manager.

I tried un- / re- install lightdm, which leaded me to missing kernel links. Installing an other display manager after installing armbian desktop via armbian-config will althrough bring errors and missing links for system.d. But at least armbian desktop does start. As a workaround having a desktop environment without having broken symblinks (but with a broken atomic namespace, whatever that means) I installed LXDE with LXDM. But this won't fix the problem with built-in lightdm. Thank you for your time reading my problems, i'll be deeply grateful for every hint fixing the broken lightdm.
  2. Hello everybody! I upgraded my armbian on my Bananapi M1 to... armbian 20.08.17 Buster with Linux 5.8.16-sunxi Unfortunately I don't have any internet access anymore now. I can still SSH into the board, but I can not ping any server with it. What more information do you need to help? Thank you very much for your attention!
  3. Hi, Did anybody play with Cedrus on the recent kernels? I'm going to play with it on Bananapi m1, kernel 5.4 and Ubuntu Bionic. Should I just got step-by-step using this instructions http://linux-sunxi.org/Sunxi-Cedrus ? The goal is to evaluate whether this is suitable solution for video surveillnace. I'd used kerberosio with an IP camera for couple years and this does not work good with motion detection.
  4. Hi, I have a Bananapi M1 running long Time with Debian Jessie. Now I installed Armbian Buster and always when I activate GPIO Pins my Network is gone on the integrated Card. Also GPIO is not working because of the Network Card. I tried to deactivate the Network Card and use an external WirelessLAN Card but the internal Card is still blocking my GPIO's. On Jessie and Wheezy before that was working perfect. Any advise? BR Peter
  5. I have a problem with my wireguard implementation. When connected through it I get lag spikes every few seconds. What might be the cause and solution to this? It is not the internet connection/cable/etc because a raspberry pi running wireguard works fine on the same exact cable, port etc.
  6. Today I updated my BananaPI M1 board, replaced the Bananian OS with Armbian Armbian_20.05.4_Bananapi_focal_current_5.4.45.img. I'm not getting the SATA with connected 1TB WD10JFCX working. The HD worked before with the Bananien kernel 3.4.x What can I do, how can I test, how can i get more information about the reason? The board is powered via the Micro USB and armbianmonitor reports DC-IN voltage > 5V
  7. Ran the following command on my Banana PI to move to the HDD (SATA) nand-sata-install Install was a success: However I think some stuff went wrong during the transfer. Whenever I open a file in nano I get the following error: Error in /etc/nanorc on line 260: Error expanding /usr/share/nano/*.nanorc: Inappropriate ioctl for device I cannot run apt-get update anymore: pi@bananapi:~$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade Hit:1 http://security.debian.org buster/updates InRelease Hit:2 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster InRelease Hit:3 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates InRelease Hit:5 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-backports InRelease Hit:4 https://armbian.tnahosting.net/apt buster InRelease Reading package lists...

  8. Hi all, I've purchased a second hand banana pi M1 board with an BPI 7 inch LC connected on prarallel RGB. The board and the LCD is working with last bananian distribution and https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-M1-M1Plus-Configuration/blob/master/fex/BPI_M1_7lcd.fex. I'm trying to make both working with Armbian but I'm lost. I don't find the script.bin, /boot/script.bin or anywhere. And no idea how to set /boot/armbianEnv.txt for the LCD. The kernel have been rebuilded using this topic. Any help will be apreciate. Regards Hugues
  9. Hello, i am new here and need the line in from MCU audio codec(U1-3 Pin AB20 & AB21), located wired on CSI connector(CON1 Pin 1 & 2), active. Is it possible? Regards Mario

    net speed

    I have recently updated to Armbian Focal (Ubuntu 20.04). My Banana Pi M1 is running an apache server + some digital amateur radio stuff. So upload speed is important. My average download and upload speed as measured with speediest-cli is 45Mb/sec and 18Mb/sec respectively (wired connection to modem) With Focal I get these speeds with Buster (Debian 10) the download speed is still 45Mb/sec but the upload speed drops to 3.4 Mb/sec. These results are not one off but consistent. The am64 version of Buster does exactly the same thing.. My question is : can I change this with programming or is it a fixture in the kernel ? Can someone enlighten me please ? Rein
  11. Hi, I am trying to use the SPI interface on the board GPIOs of a BananaPi M1+. I have started the latest version of Armbian available for this board (Armbian_19.11.6_Bananapi_bionic_current_5.4.8) and after the initial configuration the "/boot/armbianEnv.txt" file has the following added lines: fdtfile=sun7i-a20-bananapi-m1-plus.dtb overlays=spi-add-cs1 spi-spidev param_spidev_spi_bus=0 I have rebooted but I am unable to use the spidevX.Y under the "/dev" folder. What am I missing? NOTE: I have tried several combinations of values on the armbianEnv.txt configuration file (ie: using only overlays flags without the other ones, using only the spi-spidev flag, etc...), none succeeded.
  12. Well, I have this old M1 lying around. I found use for it. However HDMI output seems to be broken and I have composite video USB dongle at my hand and it boots... but I can not do anything with it. The question becomes: How on earth can I make it "ssh login"-able from the first boot (preferably with mdns)? What should I do with the image? Auto configuration tools - as handy and nice those are - are not for this. Thanks.
  13. So I've installed and I'm running watchdog for some months now on BananaPi M1. I think it reboots the board when the default gateway has some issues. And that's fine, no problem with that. The board works 24/7 and it made 14+ days uptime without problems. But things have changed and the board reboots at least few times a day (seems I have a problem with armbianmonitor -u - the board rebooted twice before it ended). And here's the problem. watchdog doesnt log anything or I'm unable to find any usefull info. And watchdog.conf: (it seems that the board went offline - maybe internet connection issues, but I have another one running that's also "logless" and they have almost the same config except for the gateway IP) ping = #ping = interface = eth0 #file = /var/log/messages #change = 1407 # Uncomment to enable test. Setting one of these values to '0' disables it. # These values will hopefully never reboot your machine during normal use # (if your machine is really hung, the loadavg will go much higher than 25) max-load-1 = 24 max-load-5 = 18 max-load-15 = 12 # Note that this is the number of pages! # To get the real size, check how large the pagesize is on your machine. #min-memory = 1 #allocatable-memory = 1 #repair-binary = /usr/sbin/repair #repair-timeout = 60 #test-binary = #test-timeout = 60 # The retry-timeout and repair limit are used to handle errors in a more robust # manner. Errors must persist for longer than retry-timeout to action a repair # or reboot, and if repair-maximum attempts are made without the test passing a # reboot is initiated anyway. #retry-timeout = 60 #repair-maximum = 1 watchdog-device = /dev/watchdog # Defaults compiled into the binary temperature-sensor = /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp max-temperature = 80 # Defaults compiled into the binary #admin = root interval = 10 logtick = 60 log-dir = /var/log/watchdog # This greatly decreases the chance that watchdog won't be scheduled before # your machine is really loaded realtime = yes priority = 1 # Check if rsyslogd is still running by enabling the following line #pidfile = /var/run/rsyslogd.pid
  14. 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: http://linux-sunxi.org/1-Wire
  15. Hello everyone, I am encountering problem with pulseaudio on Bananapi M1. I don't want the board to suspend speakers on idle. As Pulseaudio is used I simply commented this line: ``` ### Automatically suspend sinks/sources that become idle for too long #load-module module-suspend-on-idle `` in `/etc/pulse/default.pa`. The problem is that if I play something e.g. raspotify I dont hear the sound anymore. As soon I keep raspotify playing and restart Pulseaudio (killall pulseaudio) the sound is back again. If I pause music I lose sound again and need to kill pulseaudio. Does anybody encounter same thing?

  17. Hi, I did a dist-upgrade on my BPi M1. Now it is running on ARMBIAN 5.73 stable Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.7.3-sunxi When I choose a newer kernel in armbian-config after the reboot it is still running with the old kernel. When I do an apt-get upgrade it shows this error in the output: update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-4.20.7-sunxi with 1 The BPi is booting from SSD with LVM. Thank you very much for any help. Regards, Robert
  18. i wanted to use my Banana Pi M1 for displaying multimedia content from websites like twitch.tv but firefox-esr and chromium crash when I try to load them. firefox opens its crash report box without a possibility to look at the related error messages. But the output of chromium can be viewed here: http://dpaste.com/37M0QNC It was installed from Armbian_5.65_Bananapi_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.78.img plus dist-upgrades. Iinitius
  19. Guys, purchased shortly my first Bananapi M1. I installed without problems Armbian to a SD Card and now in second step i would like to connect a 1TB Western Digital 2,5" SATA HDD.

  21. Hi there I have a banana pi M1 and I have installed Armbian on it. The HDMI output / Display work fine if I have HDMI connected to the HDMI port of BPi and monitor/tv is turned on before Armbian booting process starts. However if I don't have HDMI connected before boot process or Monitor/Tv is not turned on then I don't see the display if I connects the HDMI or turned on Monitor later. It is a problem for me because when I want to connect to display to already booted OS. Does anyone faced this behavior? Please advise.
  22. I got that stability issues on my banana pi m1, and notice that the last kernel available on armbian still the 4.14.18. Today I also run apt upgrade on raspberry pi 3 and it installed the kernel 4.14.30 that stop the ipsec vpn working, the same as in 4.14.18 used on armbian. I feel some frustration on the latest kernel updates, and wondering if anyone have some info about the next kernel update that solve this issues. Do you advise me to change to nightly builds to get a new kernel to test? สมัครufabet Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
  23. Hello guys, do you know what might cause this error, it seems my "smart home" controller is not booting up anymore. In the last 2 weeks it happent again to not display any webpage while accessing it by IP, also the SSH was not working, all leds ware blinking like usually are, like there was normal activity, but it didn't respond to any request, only the ping was working, anything else was not (apache, samba, ssh). I turned it off by long-pressing the power button, it booted up, showing this warning "warning bad CRC - using default enviroment" and it passed by, showing the armbian logo and a blinking cursor, but that's it, nothing more. I think it is self restarting now like every 10 minutes. Anyu ideea what might be wrong? Is it the HDD ? (The OS is on the SATA HDD) If it's the HDD and it will still be accessible on another machine, do you guys know if there are tools to copy the entire disk to a new one ? Thank you.
  24. I can't get wifi rt5370 working at banana pi m1 on Ubuntu xenial default desktop. dmesg show: phy1 -> rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request Firmware. Looks like modules(rt2x00usb,rt2800lib,rt2800usb) are loadede but wifi still don't work.
  25. SBC is banana pi M1 I tried the banana pi at church today, things went great as for the Libreoffice impress presentations but it was hard to navigate to menus because the banana's resolution was set to 1920X1080p. Everything was too small in the projector, we need something like 1280X1024 or 800X600. I tried `a10disp changehdmimodeforce 4` to change it to 720P, on the projector but display became unstable and I had to reboot to get it back. We have two modes for projector, VGA (HDMI->VGA converter cable) or plain HDMI. Today I tried the VGA but we can also do HDMI. Please help. Thanks.
