Hello. I'm a newbie, so bear with me here. I managed to install Armbian on a TV box with the Amlogic s905w CPU. Everything seems to be working fine except for the wi-fi, which is expected based on what I've read on the forum. I had a USB wi-fi adapter with me so I tried to use that as an alternative but it doesn't seem to work no matter what I do. My question is very straightforward actually, and probably a dumb one but it doesn't hurt to ask. When we say wi-fi doesn't work on Amlogic CPUs, we're talking about Armbian recognizing their built-in wifi card, right? If I use something external to that it should be able to work regardless of the processor? Or are we talking about two things that can't be separated?
Hello there! I'm trying to boot from USB using Armbian, specifically LibreELEC, but it doesn't boot, it boots to Armbian, Armbian detects the USB but when i disconnect it and I connect it again, it turns off then turn on but to Armbian again The thing is, how can I boot from USB? Or how can I boot or install LibreELEC/CoreELEC while having Armbian on the eMMC?
Hello there! Before I start I'm gonna give a bit of information about my TV Box MXQ Pro 4K (S905W) 1GB RAM 8GB STORAGE Armbian 20.02 Kernel 5.5 (or that's what I remember) Okey, so I wanna install a Wi-Fi driver on Armbian I think my Wi-Fi chip is RTL8189ES (I'm gonna check tomorrow to be sure) I've looking on the forum and Google and so far I know that i need Linux headers, i installed them from armbian-config but i don't know if they are installed correctly, because I can't find them anywhere Then I need the RTL8189ES driver and run a Makefile Is this right? If so, what are the correct steps (like what exactly i need to do) and where I can find the Wi-Fi driver Any help is appreciated! Thanks
