On the form the h3/h5 is cut of the Orange Pi Zero Plus2 :(

 

Why we need "supersecure" passwords? :( My SBCs only run locally - so nobody can access them.

For the locale I only do get TR because Iam in Istanbul/Europe - but I need the DE locale :( 


I tested the h5-version, but the speadsheet doesnt show the h5 :(

to let the machine run the first tests themselves, then look what didn't work.  Spoiler (false positive), the script is not perfect but it helps:  https://github.com/armbian/autotests

 

 

Yeah Igor is running that on his big test rig for most.. it is a great script....   Honestly I'm hoping people can just spend a lot of time on a single image and really identify the weird stuff.

just lately I searched the forum about it.

There was a PR that fixed the bigger trouble we had.

However, I guess this automatic feature was built in in good faith, but I guess the script should ask/support the user like: You seem to live in TR, do want to set this as ur locale?

And if the user says no, give him the standard ncurser  selector.

What do u think  @igor?

@Igor, @lanefu - In testing sunxi-current on the NanoPi R1, I found a problem with the maximum CPU clock frequency not being properly limited; the R1 by default was getting overclocked, which led to instability.  The problem occurred because the VDD CPU regulator fix I made previously (now in sunxi-legacy) didn't make it to sunxi-current.  I've made the fix in sunxi-current and have pushed it to build and have confirmed that this corrects the issue (see https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/fbaf7562c05c841036b45ec1c22575684759834).

Password security is set to minimum so you really don't need to be very creative. My simple password is accepted :)

Yeah, I'll change to ask about setting locale.

How can I upgrade my Rock Pi 4 from 20.05 to 20.08? I have focal-current installed. I have updated all the packages with `apt update && apt dist-upgrade`.

Now I'm trying to update the kernel from `armbian-config`, but I don't see any 20.08 kernels there:

        linux-image-current-rockchip64=20.05. 5.4.45-rockchip64

        linux-image-current-rockchip64=20.05. 5.4.43-rockchip64
        linux-image-current-rockchip64=20.05. 5.4.43-rockchip64
        linux-image-dev-rockchip64=20.05.7    5.7.6-rockchip64
        linux-image-dev-rockchip64=20.05.3    5.6.17-rockchip64
        linux-image-legacy-rockchip64=20.05.3 4.4.213-rockchip64
        linux-image-legacy-rockchip64=20.05.2 4.4.213-rockchip64
        linux-image-legacy-rockchip64=20.05.1 4.4.213-rockchip64

Maybe the mirror you were randomly assigned is not fully synced yet. Retry a bit later.

Or grab manually: https://us.mirrors.fossho.st/armbian/apt/pool/main/l/linux-5.7.15-rockchip64/

I wasn't updating index file until all files are present on all mirrors. Now I pushed index update which will take up to 24-48h (not sure since we are doing 1st time) to update all mirrors. If we would update all at once, people will be receiving errors - file not found - all the time ... updating index from server one, then redirector points to another mirror - where files are not yet - error. Now files are everywhere, but index is somewhere still old.

 

Anyway, things are in automated motion now.

I don't know if the login and creating a user can be automated... maybe.

I was thinking of, while waiting on a reboot to login to the device for example:$  ssh root@192.168.1.20   and if your password is as you say not important to you, this could be automated from Linux in the bash:

repeat()
{
	while true
	do
		$@ && return
	done
}

but there is more, this can be added to your :  nano ~/.bash_aliases   like:

repeat() { while true; do $@ && return; done }

With a quick abbreviation just like my ll:

# **** DIRECTORY LISTING in human-readable units ****
alias ll="ls -lhAF"
