  1. I have tried every one of the latest 24.x images on my newly purchased LaFrite s805x-ac board. NONE worked. They all gave an error about overwriting reserved memory. I randomly chose a 20.x image and it worked immedaitely. I do not currently have time to do further analysis.
  2. board ist lafrite with 512mb, 8gb emmc tried all possible ports for i2c. first by configuring with armbian-config and activating i2c port a and b. then manual by writing an overlay to activate i2c_ao and deactivate the uart on pins 3+5; also tried pins 27+28; i2cdetect -y bus-nr (0, 1) never detected anything; i2cdetect -l gave me correct ports; i2cdetect -y for the hdmi-port allways worked.
  3. as described in: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/issues/2377 it's possible to use meson HW video codec now, but in the URL, not very clear, does any one know how to use it?
  4. I've recorded Armbian_20.11_Lafrite_focal_current_5.9.6.img.xz to an usb drive and booted it on La Frite with the latest firmware u-boot-2020-07-r7.bin from http://share.loverpi.com/board/libre-computer-project/libre-computer-board/aml-s805x-ac/firmware/. Armbian boots but text is almost unreadable. I guess, I have to tweak some linux boot parameters but I don't know how to do this without GRUB. I tried holding u-boot button during a launch of the board but it gives no effect. How should I edit kernel parameters on La-Frite? Is there any other solution?
  5. Hi, I fixed the following issue for my own system for now, but wanted to let you know: After upgrading the LaFrite from Armbian Buster 20.08 to 20.11 using "apt upgrade" it didn't boot anymore. It showed a message "Ramdisk image is corrupt or invalid", so I checked /boot/uInitrd and it linked to uInitrd-5.9.6-meson64, which didn't exist. I fixed it by downloading the latest image and replacing everything in /boot except armbianEnv.txt with what was inside the image. Afterwards it booted again. I replaced everything, because the image apperently still is on linux 5.9.6, while vmlinuz and other files on my system showed 5.9.10. I also realized that initrd.img was missing, too.
  6. Looked at similar issue posts and followed their advice (except for running dtbo files, my guess is those were board specific). put this in my armbianEnv.txt overlays=spi-spidev param_spidev_spi_bus=0 but on reboot I still get nothing in /dev/spi* my armbianmonitor wasnt working so its attached Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! armbian_monitor.txt
  7. Placeholder for Libre Computer La Frite general topics Marked "Supported" as of Nov. 24, 2019 Reference pages: https://libre.computer/products/boards/aml-s805x-ac/ https://forum.loverpi.com/categories/libre-computer-aml-s805x-ac https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Dl3lLTs407OZ7HhPYjjlvDX2_FPfKHMr/view
  8. I know there is a template, but this board is already on the download page as unsupported, just ran a group of tests on it after building a full desktop image, I think we can move it to supported without any issues, the S805X is the same as an S905X with some things turned off, like comparing an H3 and an H2+. Pros: SPI contains u-boot, we don't have to do anything with that. Libre Computer updates the firmware periodically (available on their site) already supports USB boot, etc, and has a "press escape for menu" option, making it very difficult to brick. UMS mode is menu selectable (I feel like we need to look at this. I have booted Armbian from both USB and eMMC using the SPI bootloader without issue Board has no special hardware that isn't part of the SoC, so as long as mainline support for the SoC remains, should be minimal support Amlogic devices are being cared for by BayLibre Cons: less powerful than other Amlogic powered offerings will bring "bought the cheap one need support" crowd (not that that's unique)
  9. I think it would make sense to rename the forum section here from "Amlogic S905(x)" to "Amlogic". It would make much more sense for me to talk here for example about the Armbian port of the Odroid C0/C1/C1+ (Amlogic S805) then in any other forum section.
