Yesterday a friend came by and asked me to demonstrate to him, my MiniM8S box
running Balbes150 ubuntu image from SDCARD. So i did. After a few happy minutes
he asked me to demonstrate to him LibreELEC running from the same box but from
internal 8GB memory. So i shutted down the box, pulled out power adapted and
SDCARD with ubuntu, and put the power adapter back so the box it will boot in
LibreELEC. Then my friend noticed that the cables was a mess, and pulled out
the power adapter while LibreELEC was booting, untangled it, and put it back.
Well... the emmc got broken and the box didn't boot anymore to LibreELEC.
Luckily it was booting fine to Ubuntu Xenial from SDCARD, and i had a backup
from my emmc with LibreELEC from when i was creating my dd_backup script.
I run the script, did it's magic and LibreELEC was back in life in 30 minutes,
with all my configurations and plugins in place.

The image as you can see in the
screenshot was compressed (what you cannot see is that is 221.5 MB instead of 8 GB)
but this was not a problem for my box.

I spend a few more hours configuring some more my MiniM8S, and right now that is completely fine-tuned i'm taking a fresh backup.

I need DVB support, how can I recompile the kernel with it? Also in my Beelink MiniMXIII II (s905x, 2 GB ram) wifi doesn't works, but no problem for me I always use ethernet cable.

 

Building the kernel.

Привет!

С английÑким у Ð¼ÐµÐ½Ñ Ð½Ðµ очень поÑтому риÑкнул напиÑать на руÑÑком.

Ð’ общем запуÑтил Ñ Ñ„Ð»ÐµÑˆÐºÐ¸ Armbian_5.24_Amlogic-s905x_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_desktop_20170118 работает прекраÑно на моей mxq pro, но проблема в firefox Ñо звуком на ок и vk.

Сразу поÑле первого запуÑка на ок Ð¸ vk пишет нет флеш плеера, а поÑле уÑтановки libavcodec-ffmpeg56:armhf или gstreamer armhf видео начинает показывать, но звук Ñильно шипит и на заднем фоне еле Ñлышен иÑкаженный звук.

Ставил мозилу arm64 в ней звук нормальный.

Balbes150 может подÑкажеш как решить проблемку? И ÑпаÑибо за Ñборку!

 

And if you try chrome ? There how it works ?

 

РеÑли попробовать Chrom ? Там как работает ?

Hi,

 

i consider installing armbian on one of my s905x boxes (tomato x96 or m8s ii). I just don't want it on an external storage but internally on the emmc.

How can this be achieved ?

I already have libreelec on them maybe that makes it easier ?

И да в firefox на youtube звук отличный, а вот ок и вк шипит. Мне товарищ talraash поÑоветовал попробовать поÑтавить alsa и pulse armhf, поÑтавил но звук вÑёравно шипит.

Мне кажетÑÑ Ñ‡Ñ‚Ð¾ звук уже Ñ firefox выходит иÑкажённый.

Рможно ли как то перенаправить, чтобы firefox:armhf иÑпользовал ffmpeg arm64?

What are the parameters in the internal memory (size of partitions) ?

What is the image You want to use to install to the internal memory ?

 

The m8s ii has 8GB internally, the X96 has 16 GB internally. The image i would use is Armbian_5.24_Amlogic-s905x_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_desktop_20170118.img.xz

I can check later the partition layout but they could be rebuild if needed.

Now I'm not ready to answer about the reason (no time to test), while the need to solve more urgent tasks. By the way the monitor should be run as root, then it will be correct conclusion

 

 

Ð¡ÐµÐ¹Ñ‡Ð°Ñ Ñ Ð½Ðµ готов ответить о причине (нет времени вÑÑ‘ протеÑтировать), пока нужно решить более Ñрочные задачи.  КÑтати монитор надо запуÑкать от root, тогда будет корректный вывод.

 

 

 

The m8s ii has 8GB internally, the X96 has 16 GB internally. The image i would use is Armbian_5.24_Amlogic-s905x_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_desktop_20170118.img.xz

I can check later the partition layout but they could be rebuild if needed.

 

Replace the files in this manner, about which I wrote above in the subject (from the catalog FIX) fixed , then we can use the install to internal memory.

Replace the files in this manner, about which I wrote above in the subject (from the catalog FIX) fixed , then we can use the install to internal memory.

Ah, i remember. Boot from USB and then run the script install_to_internal or something ?

Ah, i remember. Boot from USB and then run the script install_to_internal or something ?

 

1. Download, unzip, burn image. Armbian_5.24_Amlogic-s905x_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_desktop_20170118.img.xz

2. Replace the first section of recorded media 3 file ("zImage" "S905_autoscript" "S905_autoscript.cmd").

3. Add the file "/etc/fw_env.config"

4. Replace 2 file "/root/install.sh"  (Do not forget to set the permissions on the file install.sh to 755)   "/root/linux.img"

5. Try to start the system with the prepared media. If the system fails to start, copy it to the root (first) partition of the carrier of the correct dtb file (with the name "dtb.img").

6. After a successful system startup and initial setup, be SURE to check the operation of all necessary devices (Wifi , sound). If something doesn't work, you need to deal with the dtb data.

7. If launched from external media system works as You need, you can proceed to install to the internal memory. Pre-creates a copy of the internal memory. The procedure of backup may be different. You can use existing image scripts (ddbr_backup_*).

8. To run the installation process in for internal memory you need to run the terminal and execute "root" the command "sudo /root/install.sh" or to execute two commands "su -" (enter password of user "root") and "/root/install.sh".

TO ALL.

Found an error in the script s905_autoscript , which does not use data from dtb in the internal memory (required manually copying the file). Loaded into the directory FIX the fixed version. You can download and replace in your images this script.

Some tips,(i'm use xenial based image 20170118) if you need smooth video in mpv use -vo=x11(or change default mpv config, or use smplayer where you can change default vo settings in gui). By default mpv use other vo.

mpv with default setting 720p not smooth

 

 

 

mpv with selected vo  -vo=x11 smooth play in fullscreen

 

 

It play smooth and 1080p, but if you want fullscreen mode for 1080p video and smooth play you need set screen resolution to 1080p.

 

and test with default video test2.mp4 

mpv Test2.mp4 

 

 

mpv --vo=x11 Test2.mp4 

 

 

 

P.S. And firefox:armhf(51.0.1) still use more ram(~70mb) than chromium:armhf (55) test both on 1 open tab(this forum page).

2. The s905_autoscript looks strange .. binary data at the beginning

 

4. There is no /root/install.sh after "burning" the boot device and if it were how do you change the permissions on the USB stick with a FAT32 filesystem ?

    The linux.img is around 20MB big but after "burning" the boot device there is not enough disk space left to copy that file (there is no linux.img on the stick anyways).

 

I did what was possible and could finally boot into the xfce desktop from USB. 

Now i need a break and will continue tomorrow with testing the functionality and probably applying some fixes.

2. "s905_autoscript" is a binary file. It can't be edited as a text file. It can only be recompiled from the source file "s905_autoscript.cmd". All of this information has already been discussed many times.

 

4. File /etc/fw_env.config  and  /root/install.sh and /root/linux.img is located in the second partition (ext4) , which is available either on media box system or if your PC is equipped with Linux, or need to install Windows on your PC driver / program that can work with ext4 partitions.

2. Added the package gparted in the desktop version

3. Fixed setting in the inner memory

4. Fixed auto-using dtb from the internal memory

5. Added dtb file for VIM Khadas

The trial version of images, "3.14.29_CPU_OVER" (The TEST directory). Changed the range of available CPU frequencies 0-2000. Please check these images on the S905 S905X and S912 with the necessary control over the temperature and frequency of the processor (run in terminal as user "root" command "armbianmonitor -m"). According to my subjective feelings playing a test video even at full resolution works better than a range 500-1536. The overall temperature , it seemed to me , was below.

I tested your trial version on my X9 (X9 4K Amlogic S905X Android 6.0 Marshmallow 64Bit 2G/8G TV Box ), by installing Emby and Plex servers.  I was playing 3 videos to see what the temps got to.  My room ambient temp is around 74 degrees Fahrenheit.  I have attached the logs from running the older version and your new test version.

Update: I could not boot from internal memory after install.sh. The only options possible now are the recovery mode (to install android) or boot from external media.

I'll wait for a version that works and that does not limit the cpu.

How would I do that??  I thought it would do it by itself?

 

Try this for a start:

echo 2000000 | sudo tee /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq

I have when using the image version CPU_OVER on the model i7Pro (S905X), I see in the output armbianmonitor , as the frequency is automatically changed from 100 to 2016000. By the way, I discovered that when you try to use this image for s912 and try to run the command "armbianmonitor -m" I get the error. And if you use the kernel from the image 20170118 at s912 , the output of the command works. I wonder how will the output of the command to S905 (I have no way to check for S905).

@balbes150 Did you confirm anything over 1.5 GHz was actually real by benchmarking? 

 

Image update CPU_OVER (fixed armbianmonitor at S912).

 

Specially made a video of how to change frequencies for different load s905x and s912.

Note that in s912 (Vega S96) is used dtb from the regular firmware, and s905x (i7Pro) is used dtb from the image (gxl_p212_2G).

Replaced the zImage file to the fixed version (directory FIX) for manual replacement into existing images.

I copied and pasted it into my S905x using putty, but it did not do anything.

You can change max freq in cpufreqscale by edit

sudo nano /etc/default/cpufrequtils && sudo reboot

  but I do not know, this will have any real effect(on performance level) or not

all supported governor and frequency step you can see by this command 

$ cpufreq-info

Ran this command that you posted. >>  sudo nano /etc/default/cpufrequtils && sudo reboot

 

and got this in the Nano window.

 

ENABLE=true

MIN_SPEED=0
MAX_SPEED=2006000
GOVERNOR=ondemand
 
ran this command >>  $ cpufreq-info
 
got "command not found"

I have A95X-B7N with 1GB ram and 8GB flash.

LibreElec 7.0.3.10 runs fine from USB and works very well.

 

I tried to boot ubuntu/debian images, but none would boot.

Some stay on boot logo with A95X screen, some switch off screen after boot and never come back.

 

I tried putting different dtb files as dtb.img (p212_1/2G and others) .. nothing helps.

 

Please advise how to boot ubuntu console/desktop.

Thanks!

Try to use the dtb file from the image LE (the LE with which you work).

Test new image 20170202 CPU_OVERCKLOCK scaling work good out of box, but i don't see any performance(and temperature, of course we know it few months from  odroid forum) difference between cpufreq_max = 2GHz, 1.75 and 1.53.

Some sysbench tests...

 

 

2GHz

1.75GHz

1.5

1GHz

in some scenarios, some advantage give "performance" governor, but it's hot by 1-2 degree in idle.

 

P.S. Balbes150, what soft do you use to capture video from tvbox?
