Armbian for OrangePi PC2, AllWinner H5


Christos
 Share

Question

Hi,

 

Are there any news on if Armbian will be on the new H5 64bit board?

Orange released an Android SDK and an Android image but I guess everyone is waiting for a decent 64bit Debian.

 

Since took the plunge and got into the H5 wagon ordering one, I looked at the released info and obviously there was nothing I could use myself..

So the question goes to the Armbian gurus, guys do you think that there could be an Armbian release for H5 this year?

 

Christos

Hi - I noticed for some boards kernel 4.14 is available to deploy ( eg Allwinner A10 ) already,

when can this be expected for Allwinner H5 boards ( eg nanopineo2 ) please?


When those 100+ patches are rebased on top of 4.14 from kernel.org ... few weeks/a month? Get our 4.13.y ... it has far more support (then upstream kernel) for the board you ask. In both cases, kernel remains flagged as testing while for A10 is stable for some time.

looks like there was a game changer ... 4.14.1 released

Yet it seems also this board is supported by the kernel.

Kernel upgrade is scheduled for the stable images that got built with 4.13.x ?

IMHO 4.14 is the stable kernel now which has the " long term " status

Guys. Does anyone has the similar problem with gcc? Seems to appear on attempt to compile just anything :)
Sorry for posting Prime in PC2 thread, according to tkaiser they are all the same :)
```
# make
[Compile] wiringPi.c
cc: internal compiler error: Illegal instruction (program cc1)
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <file:///usr/share/doc/gcc-6/README.Bugs> for instructions.
Makefile:131: recipe for target 'wiringPi.o' failed
make: *** [wiringPi.o] Error 4
```
This is Armbian_5.34.171121_Orangepiprime_Debian_stretch_next_4.13.14.7z
```

# cat /etc/armbian-release 
# PLEASE DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
BOARD=orangepiprime
BOARD_NAME="Orange Pi Prime"
VERSION=5.34.171121
LINUXFAMILY=sunxi64

# uname -a

...

gcc version 6.3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18) 
```
Update:
All seems OK with Xenial and old gcc - Armbian_5.34.171121_Orangepiprime_Ubuntu_xenial_next_4.13.14.7z
```
$ gcc -v
...
gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Ubuntu/Linaro 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.5)
```
Anyway would like to understand what it the problem with stretch and gcc 6.3

Hi Igor,

 

In reply to your comment below I like to find out the status today in kernel 4.14.3 , thus if the patches meanwhile are adapted to the new LTS ?

I am just wondering since the kernel page says 4.14.3 is supported? thanks

Remember. This is open source project running by amateurs and not enterprise-grade service. :) Go to GitHub and monitor progress. 

 

We always write major changes to release documentation.

I've seen a question about setting full 1.3 ghz instead of current 1.15 several messages ago.

Assuming I'm on this testing build, made apt-get update/upgrade... Is it possible to enable full 1.3Ghz and is there any step-by-step instructions for doing this ? (I understand, that it is not the safe step and board is "downclocked" for a reason).

Thanks in advance for answering.

Hi to All and Merry Christmas.

This is for DYS and for developers.

There is an awesome tool "h3consumption" for allwinner h3 boards. E.g. I disables unneeded USB interfaces and my diy cluster is consuming less :)

Is there anything similiar for H5 ? E.g. how I can disable USB and force Ethernet to 100mbit ?

 

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Stretch is possible, but kernel for this board is not quite ready. We are working round the clock to finish this in planned due in 1-2 months.

 

Current status: 

HDMI DRM driver, CEC, HDMI audio, I2S (requires overlays)

Missing features: DVFS, THS U-boot is most likely broken

2 months passed, made any progress? since the prime & win versions are very similar and do have stretch.

 

Thanks for maintaining this.

Prime is in a better shape than Win.

Sure, but they do have stretch (even if buggy) and since my intended setup for this board is to host freedombone services (requires stretch) and run a Tor relay (complains now about outdated version because ubuntu lacks (security)updates I'm out of options.

 

Do you need me to run something to figure things out or anything else?

Armbian monitor isn't currently available on this board and with the new kernel. 

Thanks alot sir, I am not sure if I understand you correctly, but it seems that these guys can monitor the cpu temperature:

 

this on even can monitor it on a desktop environment

Btw, if anyone needs a taskbar cpu temp, genmon-plugin and a simple shell script does the trick.


#!/bin/bash
#Displays H5 CPU temparature in *C
cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp|cut -c1-2

I just received my Opi PC2 and set it up with the latest nightly build (no desktop) 

... 

CPU load and temperatures are low during the transfer, so it's not a heat / throttling issue.

Guys, thanks for update of image.

Throttle is working -  temp keeps about 66-68 degrees.

Hi,

 

I have a problem with Ubuntu 16.04 for OrangePi PC2 and Domoticz

Phyton allways crash

Looks like stability issue. Start with PSU and microSD replacing.

Hi all

Is there any way to increase CPU speed ?

Currently armbianmonitor gives me 1152 mhz, but cpu itself can do more, I guess...

 

Yes, CPU could clock up to around 1.4Ghz, but there are currently only dvfs tables for up to 1.15Ghz. You'd have to wait for developers to add back higher frequencies or add them yourself.

Does this issue also affecting the idle clocks? Today I reinstalled my OrangePi PC2 with 5.40 Ubuntu Xenial Next desktop, and the cpu clocks rarely back to 408Mhz even cpu loads are low ( 0.05 at 1152Mhz )

Tried changing governor from ondemand to interactive, but it seems no effect

 

current

/etc/default/cpufrequtils:

# WARNING: this file will be replaced on board support package (linux-root-...) upgrade
ENABLE=true
MIN_SPEED=240000
MAX_SPEED=1296000
GOVERNOR=interactive

 

My previous OS is 5.27 Ubuntu Xenial, which works awesome for almost a year. Cpu clocks idle at 240Mhz (I lowered it myself from 408Mhz)

DVFS part will receive some changes (AFAIK refactoring) since it is not working as it should yet. Nevertheless, a kernel is good enough for testing, perhaps even for use. Remember, it is a first "stable to be" build ... (not so big) problems are expected.

You can adjust these 2 parameters, for example :

echo 65 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/up_threshold
echo 50000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/sampling_rate

Then CPU clock will go to 408MHz when idle.
