  1. HI to all, excuse me but this is my first msg. I have a OPI3 board and I try different OS (Arabian, Ubuntu, Debian) all in different release but I do not have wifi and lan. for wifi I have already try with copy firmware file but is is the same for lan I have in dmesg eth0. UP and DOWN. In my experience I have found only Ubuntu Xenial 4.9.118 on the Orange.org web site with wifi OK. can you help me? Thanks
  2. My Opi3 has been running armbian for over 2 years (edge kernels & usually fully up-to-date). I have been using eMMC & I noticed an apparent slowdown about 6 months ago. As it performs cron-based tasks and is a stats collector, this performance was not noticable but doing a manual BIG dist-upgrade, it seems to take forever (20 minutes to do what should be under 5 minutes). If I run "mmc extcsd read /dev/mmcblk1", the results tell me that the eMMC is at least 90% used whatever that really means. Is this a sign of imminent failure ? hdparm shows read results of 17 MB/s which is actually slower than my alternative SD card boot device and nearly 1/10th the result of a mounted flash disk (146 MB/s). Am I right in assuming that the eMMC is really at the end of its life and I should look to move to an alternative primary storage for boot etc. I do all of my "work" on a mounted flash drive so data loss is not an issue. Is the way to go as follows : minimal boot from the eMMC or an SD card which switches ALL further OS work to the flash drive How does one formally disable the eMMC storage entirely ? Thanks
  3. After installing the Bullseye version in the Orange PI3, I launched the Kodi installation. The videos however are in slow motion, with the audio at normal speed. Are there any codecs missing? The video driver? Thanks
  4. Hi, I'd really like to set up an affordable pi hole on my new network. I think I have it narrowed down to three choices, but I'm not sure which to select. There's an orange pi 3 LTS kit available for $61. However, there is a warning listed on that Armbian image regarding the PCIE controller, that I don't understand the implications of. How serious is that problem? For a significantly less I can pick up this android TV box, that has set up tutorials on YouTube for Armbian. TX3 Mini Android 8.1 TV Box 4K TV Amlogic S905W Quad core H.265 Decoding 2.4GHz WiFi TV Box - 2GB/16GB. But it's not clear to me how much more challenging this would be to set up/maintain compared to an orange pi. Lastly, there's an orange, For Lts Kit for $110 which is initially quite a bit more than I wanted to pay, but I'm wondering if the ease of setup, and potential additional functionality might make it worth it. It's still less than half the price of a similarly powered raspberry pi at the moment.
  5. Hello, I own several Orange Pi 3 which I bought at different times. The last batch couldn't run the firmware I used previously: the ethernet was broken. So I suspect there is a new ethernet chipset on it. Current Armbian (Armbian_22.08.1_Orangepi3_jammy_current_5.15.63) works on both types. How could I differentiate the chipsets from the command line? Thank you
  6. Hello, on a fresh install (Armbian_22.08.1_Orangepi3_jammy_current_5.15.63), the ethernet eth0 interface doesn't retrieve any IP. Here comes the kernel ethernet related messages: After that, I have launched a dhclient command that took several minutes to stop. Then, an APIPA address is attributed to eth0 nterface. So I have launched armbian-config to set the eth0 to static. And it worked. But how to make DHCP works? Thank you PS all others devices on my network can retrieve an IP by DHCP. I also tried others OS on my Orange Pi 3 boards and they grab an IP. The issue comes from Armbian.
  7. Issue: 1. I have Armbian 22.05 installed on emmc 2. I have run apt upgrade 3. During the process, I got an error due stated that no space on /boot 4. I have tried to reboot but no sign that board starting 5. I have burn SD, load from SD, copy SD boot to emmc boot and than can boot from emmc again The main question is how to prevent this issue in future? How to clean-up /boot from obsolete kernels and avoid space issue?
  8. I have a orangepi board with H6 , it have BSP android 7 firmware. Now , I can enter BSP uboot shell. want to find a way to boot mainline kernel instead of BSP kernel. How to do that ? Any help would be much appreciated. EDIT: On amlogic arm64 board can use go command to load mainline u-boot , Does allwinner board have the similar way to do that ?
  9. I have tried 3 Orange Pi 3 images on my orange Pi 3 LTS. None of them will mount the root fs and continue booting. It shows btrfs, but the partition is ext4 and the armbianEnv.txt file has the correct UUID and ext4 stated. I can boot an image from the OrangePi website, so I am 99% certain it is not the power supply or sd card.
  10. Just for info from cnx-software. Orangepi 3 H6 chip is launched!!!!
  11. Short issue description: sometimes after pulling a USB device out it makes OPi3 USB host controller stuck. One or more USB ports are getting unresponsive (sometimes all four of them) and no messages in dmesg about connection/disconnection. No matter what device is used. This thing happens only on the first host controller, the second rear one is functioning and responsive. It happens more often if we push in and pull out four devices in a short period of time. Wherein /sys/kernel/debug/usb/devices is stuck too, we cannot read the info from it and all the utils (vi, cat, etc.) are getting the D state (uninterruptible sleep). "lsusb" is also not working, but can be killed using ctrl+c. sys/bus/usb/drivers/usb unbind + bind is not working on the first USB host controller but works fine on the second one. If we try to unbind the first host controller, it becomes stuck too. The only thing that helps is the device reboot. We tried to use usbmon module and when this thing happens, we're getting these messages from usbmon: ffff000004c35500 2548827842 S Ii:1:002:1 -115:2048 1 < ffff000004c35500 2549083792 C Ii:1:002:1 0:2048 1 = 0e and so on. We can bring more usbmon log if it is needed. These interrupt messages don't stop and keep coming to usbmon. Our setup is: Orange Pi3 Armbian 21.05.1 Kernel 5.10.34
  12. Hi there, I have an OPi3 box that acts as home surveillance server. It has WiFi configured as AP, client is Android phone with static IP/routing and IP Camera software. Problem is, that there is NO IP routing. I CAN access video / pictures from phone on OPi box, but NOT from my LAN. Below is routing table and iptables. Looks ok but not working. I am able to access (from LAN) WiFi IP of OPi. Also can access video served by "motion" software on OPi. But no direct connection to Android phone. root@orangepi3:/tmp# route -n Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface UG 100 0 0 eth0 U 1000 0 0 eth0 U 100 0 0 eth0 U 100 0 0 eth0 UG 100 0 0 eth0 U 600 0 0 wlan0 root@orangepi3:/tmp# iptables -L Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Laurent
  13. Hi all. I've been working with the OPi3 and PineH64 model B the last days to try installing MESA and DRM drivers to make Panfrost work. This doesn't seem to work. Every time I install Mesa and reboot. It boots into the desktop normally, but a few seconds later the screen goes into one color. Everything is unresponsive. Can't go to a terminal window. Numlock is stuck... Just tried again with compositor disabled. It does take a bit longer before it blocks. But it still happens about a minute in every time. I can't find a ttl adapter for better debugging. I'll order new ones. Both the OPi3 (bionic 5.4) and PineH64(bionic 5.3) have the same issue. I'm using self built images. You can try it with the script here Don't install all, only install mesa and drm. It seems to install well, but after reboot everything is broken. Any clue would help. Cheers.
  14. Hello, problem is next: my Orange Pi 3 now can't get IP address from my router. To solve it, I've connected via USB-TTL and on step "login:" it totally stucks and doesn't response for keyboard. What variants do I have, except reinstall OS? :) U-Boot SPL 2020.10-armbian (Feb 04 2021 - 00:24:13 +0100) DRAM: 2048 MiB Trying to boot from MMC2 NOTICE: BL31: v2.2(debug):a04808c-dirty NOTICE: BL31: Built : 00:24:06, Feb 4 2021 NOTICE: BL31: Detected Allwinner H6 SoC (1728) NOTICE: BL31: Found U-Boot DTB at 0xc07e188, model: OrangePi 3 INFO: ARM GICv2 driver initialized NOTICE: PMIC: Probing AXP805 NOTICE: PMIC: AXP805 detected INFO: BL31: Platform setup done INFO: BL31: Initializing runtime services INFO: BL31: cortex_a53: CPU workaround for 855873 was applied INFO: BL31: Preparing for EL3 exit to normal world INFO: Entry point address = 0x4a000000 INFO: SPSR = 0x3c9 U-Boot 2020.10-armbian (Feb 04 2021 - 00:24:13 +0100) Allwinner Technology CPU: Allwinner H6 (SUN50I) Model: OrangePi 3 DRAM: 2 GiB MMC: mmc@4020000: 0, mmc@4022000: 1 Loading Environment from FAT...

  16. Hi there, I have configured (successfully with NetworkManager GUI, or TUI, it was quite ago, can see it in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ ) my OPi3 as an WiFi AP. (Needed this as sharing "normal" LAN traffic with video surveillance on same WiFi channel was a disaster). It works, but in "scan" on OpenWRT routers this WIFi shows only as WPA not WPA2 protected. Armbian Buster 21.02.3. Why? How to correct this? Laurent
  17. Hi everyone ! I'm starting this new dedicated thread because I've got some new headache about this issue that we tried to figured out since months... I've received my PineH64 last week, and with this board I don't faced the reboot hang behaviour ! Today, since I've committed the OPi3 WIP scripts, and facing same reboot hang, I've decided to to try booting PineH64 image on this OPi3 board, but unfortunately reboot hang still occurs ... This brings me to a conclusion that it is not a software issue, but maybe hardware one ... I will dig on that during next few days by comparing PMIC and other between all those boards ... But I remember that @jernej said that Reboot worked on one of his H6 board ... @jernej can you confirm which board ? Do you have some boards where you still face reboot hang issue ? Can you try to mix image like I did to give clues ?
  18. Hello, After looking on the forum and on the internet I am turning to you. Here is my problem: armbian is currently running on an SD card and I would like to put it on the eMMC memory of my orange Pi 3 (8gb). When I run the sudo nand-sata-install script it offers me to install eMMc on my memory but tells me that the partition is too small. 8go seems largely sufficient to install armbian. You should know that this orange Pi already contains linux firmware in its internal memory. I figured this was due to the fact that maybe this version of armbian didn't support emmc memory, so I tried with the focal version, the buster version and the bionic version. I also tried with the 2 ubuntu images offered on the orange pi site and none seem to work with my eMMc memory. When I go to / dev / I only see mmcblk0 (I'm assuming this is my internal memory), mmcblk1 (my SD card) and mmcblkp1 (my partition on the SD card). I followed the "getting started" tutorial to the letter but I don't have enough knowledge to fix the problem on my own, that's why I'm in your hands. I remain at your disposal for any information Thanks in advance, Zekth
  19. Hi there, 2 days ago I did apt update + apt upgrade on my OPi3, everything fine. Yesterday I did a system reboot (as suggested "kernel changed"), then Eth port went dead. No even ARP works (ARPING). Have tried: - ifconfig shows correct values, - ethtool shows 1Gbps FDX connection, also same on router (OpenWRT TL-WR1043ND w 18.06 software), - changed eth cable, - on other OPi connected to same switch / router (also went dead) depowering device helped, but not on OPi3, - ARP shows MAC/IP not resolved, - WiFi (configured as AP) looks working. - also changed port on router and did power cycle device, nothing helps. - on reboot OPi3 NOTHING was changed in the network (apart update software on OPi3). - iptables clear, every policy is ACCEPT How to diagnose problem? How to repair? Laurent
  20. I have just downloaded and installed a fresh Buster Image (Armbian_20.11.3_Orangepi3_buster_current_5.9.14.img). After configuring the root password and the new armbian user, I have tried to update the system using (apt-get update....) But I noticed that there is no internet connection through the ethernet cabble. The command ethtool eth0 says that the link is detected. When trying to activate the Wired connection using "nmtui", the system says: could not activate connexion: Activation failed: IP configuration could not be reserved (no available address, timeout, etc.) Could you assist me to resolve this problem. Note: 1-The same cabble/router are well working with my second orange PI PC card. So, there is no wiring problem. 2-I have well googled to resolve this problem. But, I did not found any working solution.
  21. Red light on boot and Can't detect via putty serial. But, OPi3 works ok on ubuntu 16.8(green light). Any sollution????
  22. Dear All, I have been downloaded the Armbian Buster OS from "https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-3/" link and flash on Orange pi3 board. We are tesing OPI3 board with TCL monitor [(Model : 55P8E) (Resolution: Ultra HD (4K) ) 55 inch ] but getting the blank screen on display. After that we changed the TCL monitor setting by HDMI 2.0 "OFF" from "Auto" mode then it's working fine. We have another monitor which does not have HDMI 2.0 OFF mode facility so we can't use our product in market due to this limitation. FYI : same thing we tested with fresh orangepi board (with default android image) and it working fine. It will be good if someone can help us to sove this issue because we are stuck to launch our product in market due to issue. Thanks & Best Regards, Nikunj Patel
  23. Hi, I have "orange pi 3" and I want to migrate "Debian Buster" from "SD" card to eMMC. I run this command sudo nand-sata-install And I only get this! see link https://ibb.co/wQz0jx4 As you can see there is no item "Boot from eMMC - system on eMMC" What am I doing wrong? PS - Armbian Buster downloaded from https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-3/
  24. I am considering the purchase of an Orange Pi 3 and I was wondering how well it is supported by the current Armbian image. According to https://linux-sunxi.org/Linux_mainlining_effort it should work mostly fine. How well does Panfrost run on the board? Are there any gotchas that I should be aware of? Thanks.
  25. hello, my orangepi3 after the updates of firmware of these days seems to loose eth0, at reboot take eth0 and eth0:avahi with class 169 ip. i made backups (i use a sd to restore the mmc mouting hd and then copy the gzip image) so i have not problems to restore but, i suspect, the previus version is working but the new one not. sorry for my worst english... ab
