Passing configuration to docker build

It works for me - latest sources, using Debian Buster as a host.

Should I restart docker?

Yes - I would propose to delete the container / image.

Last try is to try clean git clone build script and start from scratch? 

Did not work, sorry.
Actually, passing params in command line as 


works just fine, but I have another issue. Network is not working for image built this way.

Official image downloaded yesterday has version 20.02_Lime2_bionic_current_5.4.20 and it works, 
this image has version Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Lime2_bionic_current_5.4.20 and it does not work. Checked with serial console, network is dead, dhclient is started, bit there is no IP  set. Tried to set up IP manually, but it still does not work though eth0 is up.   Looks like a problem with u-boot (probably some networking chip patches are missing), but in both cases u-boot has same major version  19.10.
Is there any way to get identical build (same u-boot and kernel) as official one?

I can check this fastest in 1-2 weeks.

Ok, original issue is fixed. I had BOARD_NAME instead of BOARD in my userpatches config. Now ./compile docker myconfig works.

Thanks a lot, but with the network issue I think I can find a workaround with some little hint from you.

Actually, what I'm trying to achieve is customizing image. I copied config/boards/lime2.conf  to config/boards/myboard.conf,  renamed the BOARD_NAME="MyBoard" to change the default hostname. BOARDFAMILY and BOOTCONFIG are the same as for Lime2,  it is the nearest compatible board, original Lime2 build works fine.  The desired image should include some pre-installed stuff (Node.js 10x, my app,  dependencies),  I did it with customize-image.sh.  Now setting BOARD=myboard creates the image I need, with the changed hostname and preinstalled software, but the network does not work.  Obviously, some patches are BOARD  -depended, not the board family. Workaround is leaving BOARD as is, and renaming the host in customize-image.sh script.  And here I need a hint - hostnamectl does not work in build time, what is the better approach?

One more question - how to update the ssh login prompt with new hostname after it is changed?

No more questions :) Just fixed BOARD_NAME in /etc/armbian-release, motd now displays correct name.

PS. great job guys, userpatches concept is just great. Working firmware for the new board in 2 days - that took me 6 months before with Buildroot.
