  1. I need to get an armbian focal image for the Rpi4b. I've checked in https://archive.armbian.com and it only shows the current jammy variant. If anyone could tell me where I can download the deprecated images, it would be much appreciated.
  2. Hi friends, I use armbian for long time, but these days I change my borad to RaspberryPi 4B. However I can not get kernel startup serial output from RPI as usual on the board. Does anyone has more information about that? What I want to do is a atonomy driving experiment environment. And I don't have monitor or keyboard attach to it. I will patch preempt_RT to get the RT linux kernel, so it's difficult for me to pull the RPI out of the test bench everytime and put back after setting the ssh or something everytime I flash new kernel or image. The armbian version I use is Armbian_23.11.1_Rpi4b_jammy_current_6.1.64.img Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi All, as all my other boards run armbian I thought it only right that my raspberry 4b should run it, has anyone here successfuly installed Armbian on one ? I don't want to use Bookworm as it has Audio problems - my main use of the pi is to host Logitech media server running squeezelite TIA
  4. Is there some shell script file inside /boot directory that gets called on system startup? Alternatively, is there any way to make such a script run by modifying only files inside /boot (like some config setting)?
  5. Hi, I recently noticed that after updating to 24.02 the package "linux-libc-dev" did not receive a update. I have checked the current armbian archives and couldn't find anything for any arch. Just to be sure i've also built armbian 24.5 images for bananapi (noticed this on a bananapi board) and rpi4b (as a well supported board) and no linux-libc-dev[...].deb was built. It seems that with the buildsystem change the files packages/armbian/mkdebian and packages/armbian/builddeb were retired (commit e98c66b, v23.11.1) which previously handled building the kernel packages and included linux-libc-dev. Unfortunately linux-libc-dev is a dependency for libc6-dev and in turn also linux-headers... To build such a package i think one would have to add the function to lib/functions/compilation/kernel-debs.sh, similar to the way linux-dtb is built and add it to artifact_map_packages in lib/functions/artifacts/artifact-kernel.sh to be built in the process. Does anyone agree with this observation? I'm not sure as I am pretty new to the armbian build system... Is anyone aware of this and working on it? Thanks, valium
  6. The versioning within Armbian seems to be inconsistent. On a up to date RPi4 The login message states that it is running Armbian 23.11.1: Welcome to Armbian 23.11.1 Jammy with Linux 6.6.18-current-bcm2711 /etc/os-release is listing both 22.04 and 24.2.1: PRETTY_NAME="Armbian 24.2.1 jammy" VERSION_ID="22.04" VERSION="22.04.4 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish)" ARMBIAN_PRETTY_NAME="Armbian 24.2.1 jammy" /etc/armbian-release says it is 23.11.1: VERSION=23.11.1 REVISION=23.11.1 So these are three different versions, making it confusing. Any idea what is going on here?
  7. Searches suggest a USB reset script will fix but that says nothing found. It comes up after unplugging and replugging the dongle. Already configured with "nmcli c add type ethernet ifname enx00e04c68080d con-name HiQSDR autoconnect yes save yes ip4" After boot, nothing in lsusb for it and dmesg -T does not show it.

  8. I'm trying to get to the point where I can read time from the DS3231 RTC module on a Raspberry Pi 4. From what I understand, I first need to activate i2c bus, then load the kernel module that would work with the clock itself. So far i2cdetect tool fails to detect anything. There are no i2c-* devices in /dev either. I've read about "Hardware" option in armbian-config, but it's not showing up in the menu. I've also read that it's a matter of adding a device tree overlay. Does that apply for RPI4? The folder structure in /boot seems different from what documentation and several threads describe for other boards. What would be the steps for activating i2c bus on RPI4?
  9. Hello Armbian Community, I am running Armbian on a Raspberry Pi 4 with a RAID 1 setup for my root filesystem. I've come across a warning in a guide for RaspiOS (link below) suggesting that firmware upgrades could disrupt the RAID setup. Robert Alexa's Guide on GitHub Given this, I have a few questions about handling Armbian kernel updates in a similar RAID configuration: How are kernel updates managed in Armbian when using RAID for the root filesystem, and are there any known issues similar to the one described in the guide? What precautions should I take when applying apt upgrade to ensure that my RAID remains bootable? Is the initramfs update process during Armbian kernel upgrades RAID-aware, or are there manual steps required to maintain RAID integrity? Does Armbian have specific guidance or documentation on managing RAID setups through system updates? Any advice, documentation references, or user experiences you could share would be incredibly helpful, especially to avoid any interruptions to my RAID system following updates. Thank you in advance!
  10. So, i have a rpi4b, i was installing LightDM. and when I started the service I rebooted and it said lightdM failed to start. So, how do i enter a shell Like ZSH. When LightDM failed and I can not enter by normal means.
  11. I'm attempting an install to the eMMC on a CM4 (mounted on an Axzez Interceptor) using armbian-install. I've booted Armbian 23.5 Jammy CLI from USB, and armbian-install runs fine, (boot from eMMC, system on eMMC) After transferring the rootfs I get the "Cleaning up ... Almost done." message, and then the following: Error while creating U-Boot loader image with mkimage Error: no u-boot package found, exiting I've run a full update / upgrade and installed armbian-config with no change. What's missing here?
  12. I noticed there's a community overlay module that adds a "first boot" script which, among other things, allows you to connect to wifi without ever connecting a monitor or keyboard. But, this overlap doesn't seem to come with the current raspberry pi 4b image (Armbian_23.5.1_Rpi4b_jammy_current_6.1.29.img). I tried downloading the build script, but I don't see an option to enable overlays in that either. Is this supported at this time? Also, I know I could just use raspbian if I want this feature, but I'm hoping to work with armbian because I want my build process to be reproducible on other boards.
  13. Using release Armbian_23.5.1_Rpi4b_jammy_current_6.1.29 on a Raspberry Pi 4b. From a clean install: $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt upgrade $ sudo apt install podman $ podman run --rm docker.io/library/hello-world Error: command required for rootless mode with multiple IDs: exec: "newuidmap": executable file not found in $PATH Podman runs fine with sudo, so for now I can use that as a workaround, but it would be nice to run rootless containers for dev environments. There is a related issue on the official podman repo, but the solutions there don't seem to apply to armbian. https://github.com/containers/podman/issues/9271
  14. Where can I get the kernel headers for rpi4b for 5.15.92-bcm2711? sudo armbian-config does not get it
  15. Hello guys! Probably some of you know me as the MadEDoctor from Youtube. For those of you who don't know my channel and don't know what I am doing at the moment - Long story short I got my hands on a 16GB RAM chip that should be compatible with the Raspberry Pi 4 hardware. But there is a problem I am facing... That is I am unable to boot any OS different from VMware (arm version) and RISC OS (that is pretty much useless). When I try to boot Raspbian for example - It shows the rainbow square and then gets stuck on a completely black screen and it draws around 500mA... I contacted Jeff Geerling with the hope he could help with this project. He wrote a post on the official RPi forum. As it seems the engineers of the Pi just don't want to help and even worse are lying that the hardware doesn't support 16GB of RAM... Then one guy in the comments suggested I write here and ask for help... and here I am I will be pretty thankful if somebody could help me with this project. Here I provide datasheets for both the 16GB chip I got and the 8GB OEM one so you can compare them. 8GB - Micron D9ZCL | MT53E2G32D4NQ-046 WT:A :https://www.farnell.com/datasheets/3681594.pdf 16GB - Micron D8CBG | MT53E4G32D8CY-046 WT:C :https://4donline.ihs.com/images/VipMasterIC/IC/MICT/MICT-S-A0017462930/MICT-S-A0017465122-1.pdf?hkey=52A5661711E402568146F3353EA87419 And this is the video where I show what I have done to this point: https://youtu.be/vtym0TAWNto
  16. im on a fresh install of armbian cinnamon for the rpi4. i can not seem to get bluetooth working. there seems to be no bluetooth module loaded by kernel maybe? i tried to enable it using armbian-config, but it doesn't get activated by systemctl even when enabled. any ideas?
  17. Hello, I am planning to create a Kubernetes cluster from 5 Raspberry PI and one of the alternatives mentioned in tags, 9 hosts in total. I want to mount and customize the installation images with ssh keys, static IP address, etc, and to skip the initial script offered at login by the CLI images. Can you point me to the right piece of documentation? Thank you, Stefanita Vilcu
  18. The `hardware` menu is missing on the current build - so been trying to manually install spidev module. I did add the following lines to armbianEnv.txt but I don't see anything yet in /dev/spi* overlays=spi-spidev param_spidev_spi_bus=0
  19. Hello all, according to the hints on the ARMBIAN homepage the image "Armbian_23.02.0-trunk_Rpi4b_lunar_edge_6.1.5.img" should work with the Raspi 3. Unfortunately it does not work properly, the system does not want to boot with it.... The name of the image says that it was generated for Raspi4, but -as I said- the homepage says that this image would also be compatible for the other Raspberry systems mentioned there. Can anyone tell me what the reason could be, because I would love to use this ingenious image for the Raspi 3. Best regards from Berlin Z. Matthias
  20. Hello all, As I have often said, I am very satisfied with this LINUX implementation on the RASPI PI4 board. In the meantime, I noticed one small thing and that was somehow related to the 4GB version of my RASPI. I often had to record a KERNEL crash here; this did not happen under the 8GB version until now. But now to my actual question: How can I activate the CAMERA port under this Linux version so that I can connect a camera there? Best regards Z. Matthias
  21. Hello all, I have installed the image "Armbian 23.02.0-trunk.0176 Lunar with bleeding edge Linux 6.1.6-bcm2711" on my two Raspi 4 systems. One system runs via cable and the other via WLAN. At the beginning there were some problems with the IPv6 - kernel, if "apt update" was executed. I got this problem under control with "disable ipv6".... Since then, both systems run flawlessly & without problems. With the implementation of GPIO you should fall back on an existing GPIO - version, which works in any case also under this image; also for 64bit. One small thing I would like to know very much, because on the system with the cable the WaveShare PoE - HAT is installed and I would like to monitor via software very much the FAN. Unfortunately, this does not work because the software does not see "I2C". In the Config - File, however, you see this as "enable" - What can I do here? Does anyone have an idea how I can enablen the I2C so that this works? Best regards from Germany..... Z. Matthias
  22. Hello everybody. I've faced the issue: Armbian_22.08.7 official image (Armbian_22.08.1_Rpi4b_jammy_current_5.15.61.img) failed to boot on RPi3B plus.

  23. Hi, I'm interested in getting a compact ARM-based processor (something like a RPI or ASUS TinkerBoard) that can output a 2560x720 output resolution. The current available documentation seems quite sparce and Google searches are littered with people having problems with establishing their chosen video resolutions so I am sceptical! Any pointers would be gratefully received. Thank You, Dave
  24. I am only sure, that Armbian_22.11.0-trunk_Rpi4b_jammy_edge_5.19.11_xfce_desktop.img.xz works with my hardware, maybe Armbian_22.11.0-trunk_Rpi4b_jammy_current_5.15.70_xfce_desktop.img.xz too. For sure I have problems with newer Armbian_22.11.0-trunk_Rpi4b_jammy_current_5.15.73_xfce_desktop.img.xz and Armbian_22.11.0-trunk_Rpi4b_jammy_edge_5.19.15_xfce_desktop.img.xz So where can I download older versions?
  25. I con do a screenshot with scrot and a terminal, but a screenshot with the P400 and PrtScn-Key does not work. Can anybody help me please?
