Recommended Posts

Which images did you try?  Did you use a stable image from the downloads page?

Just a quick note: when I was preparing latest update, I was using Orangepi PC2 as one of the (fully operational) test subject.

U-boot, where some tiny changes, can make a difference is different. This still doesn't explain anything ... can you get some serial console logs?

May be out of noob territory now :P

you'll need a TTL adapter

yeah i think i'm gonna need to invest in that, probably also useful for future troubleshooting tho, although i'm still confused why the armbian wont boot, so in the meantime i'm using ubuntu with XFCE

The USB-TTL dongles are so cheap, I've more then 15 of them, this avoid me to unplug one when needed somewhere else, most of my boards have one dedicated to them ... :)

Likewise. But since it works for us and doesn't for you its even more interesting. Serial console might give some insights. In the mean time check https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Getting-Started/ once again if you made some fundamental error, like forgetting to unpack 7z file, not using Etcher for burning SD card. Check/change power supply.

i tried etcher 2 different PCs and even win32diskimager, none of them work sadly, but ubuntu works fine so i don't think it's the PSU, i've even redownloaded the image file twice on two different PCs with three different SD cards and it still doesnt work,  and the weird thing is that on the ubuntu image when i flash it to the sd card there is a partition called BOOT, while the armbian image doesnt have any

That's not an issue. Armbian does not have FAT boot partition. 

Well, we need to see serial output to say more.

I booted here Armbian_5.91_Orangepipc2_Debian_buster_dev_5.2.0

which - I think - should have the latest u-boot changes (u-boot 4.2019) and it worked beside of a "small" probem of the network-manager fine :)

Thanks. Can you check one specific (Debian Buster CLI) from the download section. Just to confirm it boots. U-boot should be the same version, while kernel is still 4.19.y ...

@Igor it still boots like the version with kernel 5.2, but has also the same problem with the

"NetworkMananager wait online"

[FAILED] Failed to start Network Manager Wait Online.
See 'systemctl status NetworkManager-wait-online.servce' for details.

- resize filsystem was before that, that normally long in time

 

If you doesnt have a HDMI-monitor connected nor a serial-TTL-device - you could think it doenst boot - and after many minutes  it wouldnt be found in the network, because of the failed network-manager.

 

I had also to deconfigure the Network-Manager.

armbian-config doenst see eth0, so you can only configure devce lo and after that edit wit nano /etc/nework/interfaces

and rename the armbian-config configured lo-device to eth0 :(

 

After that the PC2 does boot without network problems via ifupdown.

with which command did you now create the new rootfs and with which options did you compile? ;)

 

sudo rm -rf cache/rootfs/buster-cli*
sudo ./compile.sh EXPERT=yes BETA=yes BOARD=orangepipc2 BRANCH=next RELEASE=buster BUILD_DESKTOP=no KERNEL_ONLY=no KERNEL_CONFIGURE=no EXTERNAL=yes CLEVEL_LEVEL=cache USE_TORRENT=no ROOT_FS_CREATE_ONLY=FORCE

I did try that command for the NanoPi K1 Plus - but it isnt getting better with that NetworManager error.
You could also see the 190715 at the 5.91 armbian version :( So it should be a really new version....

Tested successfully. Your 5.2.1 kernel image hasnt the NetworkManager error, while the same build from me with the 4.19.57 kernel does have the NetworkManager error.

Is the kernel at this time only the difference or did you try something else (out of cleaning rootfs) like special compile options? Beta wasnt it, because I did use this too...

 

Your build show a little "problem" with the ttyGS0 - maybe because I didnt use the gadget-serial ;)

[EDIT] Did get this error ONLY at the first boot ;)

 

So whats the magic for the NetworkManager about your new build? :)

BTW: the .dtb has some LED names mixed up:

# green LED
echo 'mmc0' > /sys/class/leds/nanopi:blue:status/trigger


# red LED
echo 'heartbeat' > /sys/class/leds/nanopi:green:pwr/trigger

A clean rootfs and for 5.2.1 i had a slight change to kernel that was causing bootfailures immediately after thenkernel.loaded.. id say its unrelated

 

https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/1458

 

Watch your build and make sure it doesn't download a rootfs.

 

Im hoping[mention=1]igor[/mention] will kick off a new build if he gets a chance and then we wont have to worry about it anymore

 

Nm looks like he's got a build running

rootfs was updated https://dl.armbian.com/_rootfs/ so it should be fine now.

does this mean we/I shouldnt get the NetworManager error when do compile only with

./compile.sh  EXPERT="yes"

 

Or is it better to firstly/safely clean rootfs before the next compile on my PC?

If you already have a local filesystem cache it will not download new (corrected one) ...
