  1. I am trying to compile the full OS image (incl. kernel and u-boot) for nanopifire3 target but fail every time. I am following the provided build instructions. I have tried compiling on multiple machines, but the one I am using has 8 cores and 12gb RAM. I have tried in an Ubuntu 22.04 LXC container, Ubuntu 22.04 in a VM, and the the docker container provided by Armbian. My kernel has the binfmt_misc module loaded (verified with lsmod), no spaces are present in build path, and I have tried both root user and sudo as a regular user. I have also checked the similar issues on the armbian forum Please forgive me if anything is incorrectly formatted or so, I have tried to provide as much detail as I can. If I didn't provide something, please tell me and I will do my best to resolve the issue. Additionally, I know this board is CSC status and not supported. I am not asking for support with anything in the OS, I am simply trying to build a new kernel for the device. Here are the exact steps required to produce the issue. 1. Install Ubuntu 22.04 on bare metal/VM and install git from apt 2. Run git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/armbian/build; cd build; ./compile.sh 3. Select "Full OS build for flashing" 4. Select "Show a kernel configuration menu before compiling" (but I never got this far so it probably doesn't matter) 5. Show CSC and pick nanopifire3 from list 6. Pick bullseye (I believe all of them error the same but my target is bullseye) 7. Pick image with server interface and standard/minimal image (both error same) 8. The error shown below will be produced when compiling u-boot.

  2. Hello everone. I'm new to embedded linux. To start with, I have nanopi fire 3 and smart 6818 cards, but I cannot access gpio pins with any gpio library. Why doesn't the NPi-GPIO library work with these cards? At first I was using the lubuntu version, I tried a lot there, but I couldn't. Now I'm trying to do something using armbian version 21.04. I'll post the problem I'm facing below. Thank you in advance for your help. Traceback (most recent call last): File "npigpio.py", line 1, in import NPi.GPIO as GPIO File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/dist-packages/NPi.GPIO-", line 1, in from NPi._GPIO import * RuntimeError: Is not NanoPi based board.
  3. Hi! For some reason my nanopi fire 3's gigabit ethernet is very unstable. When connected to my local machine directly, the ping latency is insanely high and irregular: PING ( 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=112 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=333 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=350 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=203 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=5 ttl=64 time=1014 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=6 ttl=64 time=423 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=7 ttl=64 time=93.4 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=8 ttl=64 time=345 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=9 ttl=64 time=358 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=10 ttl=64 time=49.6 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=11 ttl=64 time=1021 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=12 ttl=64 time=299 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=13 ttl=64 time=305 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=14 ttl=64 time=318 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=15 ttl=64 time=300 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=16 ttl=64 time=1008 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=17 ttl=64 time=290 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=18 ttl=64 time=306 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=19 ttl=64 time=211 ms 64 bytes from icmp_seq=20 ttl=64 time=1023 ms ^C --- ping statistics --- 21 packets transmitted, 20 received, 4.7619% packet loss, time 20085ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 49.608/418.113/1022.521/312.908 ms, pipe 2 The nanopi fire 3 is directly connected to my desktop computer via a CAT6 cable, and the desktop computer's network adapter supports gigabit ethernet. Note that it is a direct cable connection and I am getting <1ms with my other boards such as the odroid xu4. I have also tried connecting the nanopi fire 3 directly to a netgear switch behind a router. Still terrible ping. Surprisingly if I force nanopi fire 3 to use 100Mbps ethernet connection, the ping latency is suddenly normal. I've tested the ethernet cable and it is working fine. And the nanopi fire 3 has a stable PSU(5.1V with no load and 5.05V under load). To investigate further, I tested Friendlyarm's friendlycore (seems to be ubuntu 18.04, kernel 4.4, aarch64) on the fire 3. And the gigabit ethernet is working with full speed. I also tested all history versions of armbian on the nanopi fire 3, and NONE OF THEM HAVE WORKING STABLE GIGABIT ETHERNET. This makes me think that there is something wrong in the gigabit ethernet code with armbian's s5p6818 4.14 kernel, since friendlyarm's 4.4 kernel does not have that issue. Also something worth noticing: nanopi fire 3 running armbian has less power draw(0.5 W) than friendlyarm's kernel, so it is possible that its network adapter attempted but cannot draw enough power to enable gigabit ethernet, thus the random and irregular ping. Tl;dr: There are some bugs in Armbian's 4.14 kernel for Nanopi Fire 3 that prevents gigabit ethernet from working properly.
  4. Hello, I'm trying to get working my NanoPi Fire3 with HD702 screen and I found out some issues. I'm running Armbian_20.02.7_Nanopifire3_bionic_legacy_4.14.174 image on it. -- First and most significant is that the ethernet port isn't working properly.

My current Micro SD card is a SanDisk Ultra 32GB rated USH-I, (10), U with a 1 inside, and A1. I used dd if=IMG of=DEV BS=8192 status=progress to place the image onto the Micro SD card.

  6. 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?
  7. Hi there! I recently installed Armbian (Stretch: Armbian_5.83_Nanopifire3_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.115) on my new NanoPi Fire3. I was able to boot, but it responds so slow, that it is unusable! For example, when I SSH into it, it takes a log time to show me the login prompt. When I enter the username and press enter, it takes about 5 seconds to ask me for password. When I enter password, it takes about 10 seconds to show me the Armbian banner. I wasn't even able to go past the changing of unix password on first login, because it just "froze". I have installed the image twice on my SD card, just to make sure it isn't a corrupted install. I'm using a good PSU, and a good quality Samsung EVO 32GB sd card. I have tried installing DietPi, and FriendlyElec's 64 bit xenial image, without problems! This behavior happens only with Armbian. I want to use Armbian because I understood that it supports Docker on the Fire3 (is this true?) I haven't tried the Ubuntu version of Armbian, since it has Desktop, and I'm looking for a headless OS. BTW, is the Armbian Stretch image for the NanoPi 64 bit? Thank you guys for the excellent work!
  8. Hi all, In the review of the Fire3 at least one person mentions powering this board via something other than the MicroUSB. This would allow me to use the serial console that's supposedly exposed over that port instead of wiring up yet another USB to serial converter. What I can't work out is a) which pin/s are used to power it, and b) what kind of power supply is used. I'd rather not fry the board (it'll do that itself under load) so can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.
