After this commit I built an Ubuntu Xenial image: http://kaiser-edv.de/tmp/NumpU8/Armbian_5.34_Sunvellr69_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113.img.xz (MD5 sum: 06e5a14865f0be6861f7e11babdd8bb3)

 

Still feedback wanted but only based on this image (none for other devices, really):

  • Wi-Fi working / which 'performance'
  • led functionality (there should be two leds and both accessible through sysfs as @guidol demontrated already with one of them)

 

Firstly :) the image is missing the symbolic link for script.bin -> /boot# ln -s bin/sunvell-r69.bin script.bin

Config and WiFi connect via nmtui without problems:

from outside the case I can only see the led connected to the trigger of the "red" led:

echo "heartbeat" > /sys/class/leds/red_led/trigger

when I had the case open the led looks like a red/blue dual-led....but the case is transculent for infrared...so I dont know if it is the red or blue light that shine....

 

SSH-console via WiFi sometimes hangs for a few parts of a second (bad latency) ....doesnt seem to be very stable a very stable signal:
(but it show 52 of 70 for the quality)

After a "reboot" we got the same kernel-panic and 10 second timer - BUT the restart seems to work :)
After the restart you see in the first line a <5

and then the normal Ubuntu-Login Screen.

Thank you for testing and yeah, stupid mistake by me naming board config sunvellr69.csc and fex file differently sunvell-r69.fex. Fixed.

 

Still interested in the output from

iperf3 -R -c 192.168.6.22
echo "heartbeat" > /sys/class/leds/green_led/trigger

(iperf3 testing in reverse direction and trying out the led connected to PL10 pin (according to vendor fex, IIRC we have another device with dual color led and there it's also PL10/PA15). Currently we know there's a blue led connected to PA15 (and labeled wrongly) so would be interesting to see whether's reaction to toggling PL10 too.

Is it fixed the link given in your previous post ? Because using version downloaded five minutes ago,  i'm stuck with Starting kernel...

I didn't recreate the image since I want to fix all open issues in one batch so only fixed in local Github repo copy. I fear the link has to be created somehow otherwise behaviour expected...

@tkaiser, Thanks, I apply  @guidol correction and successfully boot.

I created the symbolic link after mounting the uSD on my NanoPi Neo2 as /mnt/sda1

Its good to have more than one from these small computers :)
Nice to hear that it also worked for you :)

Install to emmc went fine. Setup Wifi, reboot disconnecting Ethernet, and test accessing iperf server on a orange pi pc (with ethernet connection)

Well I used the emmc install to create the link !

in fact 

echo "heartbeat" > /sys/class/leds/green_led/trigger

blinks a little red led. Case closed it's only lightly visible through the case's vent... if the case is upside down !

Well, as notice by Sven K in his Facebook report, the box engineers seems to have a strange physics. where heat went down and it's logical to put led where nobody can see it !

94.2 Mbits/sec

That's Ethernet (so packets in this direction travel over the other interface -- which might have slightly improved your wifi numbers before, it's not that easy to correctly measure wifi performance when more than one interface is active and two or more interfaces are connected to the same subnet). Anyway we already know we can't expect wonders from XR819, it works somewhat ok-ish (see @t.munzer results) and anyone wanting to have decent Wi-Fi performance can always add an RTL8211AU 2x2 MIMO dongle anyway (well, that needs most probably mainline kernel support so someone has to hack together a .dts and submit upstream)

a little red led

Ok, then blue and visible led is connected to PA15 (and labeled wrongly red) and there's another rather invisible led connected to PL10 and wrongly labeled green. To make things worse I decided to now label the blue one green just to get almost consistent boot behaviour on all H2+/H3 boards (blue led labeled green will light up when kernel starts to load, at the time login is possible it will blink 3 times and then turn into solid mode again): https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/6981e324192dd6aad06e9ebd1a21a4c2f5c47d32

 

Will now create the Xenial image again (just check the timestamps at the download location). So now two contributions are IMO needed to consider switching from 'community supported' OS image to fully supported:

  • Someone has to create a device page in linux-sunxi wiki
  • Someone has to submit pull requests with u-boot config (576 MHz DRAM clock, 1008MHz CPU clock and MMC2 setting for eMMC) and a patch adding DT for the board (please keep in mind that 3.4 LTS kernel support ended already half a year ago)

Funny thing about the SSH latency via WiFi:

If I do play Internet Radio via

mpg123 -v -@ /home/guido/absolut_128.m3u

on the HDMI console using WiFi I can use SSH at puTTY with like no lantency - also via WiFi

 

Seems like that when only my typeing is transmitted via WiFi - the XRadio would go in a like sleep mode between the chars :)

Well, that was what we observed one year ago on Orange Pi Zero prior to disabling wi-fi powermanagement (it reads off in your and @t.munzer's iwconfig output). Anyway new image finished uploading: http://kaiser-edv.de/tmp/NumpU8/Armbian_5.34_Sunvell-r69_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113.img.xz

 

In my opinion the fex file is fine now (looking at it not that much from an Armbian perspective but more having users of other projects in mind like H3Droid, RetrOrangePi, Lakka or @jernej's OpenELEC who hopefully can use the fex 1:1). For Armbian we would need mainline kernel/u-boot support contributed by volunteers.

Starting package integrity check. This might take some time. Be patient please...

It appears you may have corrupt packages.

This is usually a symptom of filesystem corruption caused by SD cards or eMMC
dying or burning the OS image to the installation media went wrong.

The following changes from packaged state files were detected:

/lib/modules/3.4.113-sun8i/modules.dep
/lib/modules/3.4.113-sun8i/modules.dep.bin
/lib/modules/3.4.113-sun8i/modules.alias
/lib/modules/3.4.113-sun8i/modules.alias.bin
/lib/modules/3.4.113-sun8i/modules.symbols
/lib/modules/3.4.113-sun8i/modules.symbols.bin

Interesting, maybe a packaging fix is needed.

Reboot doesnt seems to work like before.... while booting up the <5 appears then the Ubuntu-login-Screen.
After u-boot the screen seems to be initialized in another way (short dissorted image)

No idea and won't look into further. Current situation is that most needed bits are part of Armbian repo, everyone can build/improve legacy images and wrt 'full support' we need a wiki page and some copy&paste work (using Beelink X2 mainline stuff it's mostly just that + testing which I can't since not owning the device).

 

Desktop and CLI image as well as 'support package' with individual packages: http://kaiser-edv.de/tmp/NumpU8/

(No Debian yet of course since Stretch needs a newer kernel than the smelly Allwinner 3.4)

Is there any tool for a checking stable and correct ethernet-transfer?

While I hear internetradio (via mpg123 or mplayer) I had some quirks and hicks on some stations, which I doesnt have with an OPi Zero (with AddOn-Board) or a NanoPi Neo2 with USB-Audio-Adapter while using also mpg123 or mplayer.

 

Maybe the R69 has only some problems with the compiles version of mpg123 or mplayer and it isnt the hardware, because with other services like SMB, FTP and SSH I didnt got any problems.

Any chance of having Official support for this board?

 

Did you read what has been written just one post above?

It's up to users of the device taking care of it since obviously TV box manufactuers don't care about such stuff. Is there a wiki page? Has a user started to provide DT modifications? I don't think so.

You could use iperf3 but should be aware that there can't be hardware related networking differences between OPi Zero and this box since the whole network functionality lives inside H2+ and only the external MagJack can make a difference. With Fast Ethernet also trace lengths on the PCB don't matter so if you get network issues with same software you're most probably already talking about defective hardware -- which wouldn't be a surprise especially given that the box is now on sale. I never understood why people expect quality hardware from dirt cheap TV boxes.

I dont expect real quality, but I want to check if it is the ethernet-port or the streaming-app or the driver for ethernet of the os.

The "dirty cheap" Orange Pi Zero (with Expansion PCB) is streaming Internet-Radio without problems and has also a Allwinner-SoC.

This is what I was telling you already. H2+ on this TV box and H2+ on OPi Zero are obviously the same, Ethernet MAC and PHY live inside the SoC so there are NO differences to expect other than a mechanical issue (MagJack or cable broken, this is easy to spot with iperf3 as already suggested)

Hi @guidol may I use your board images in the wiki?

Thanks!!

Yes - for sure - if it do help :)

with the Fake-6.0.1 Android...its inly a Kitkat 4.4 - so no KODI 17.5 - only KODI 16.1

Her are pictures from @tkaiser - maybe you can use them also? what did you say Thomas?

These pictures are not from me :)

 

(Maybe Sven Kayser?) Anyway: creating an account over at the wiki is as easy as clicking on this here. Let's help @manuti!

Please do.

Some minor issues related to @tkaiser armbian image, both of then:

  • lock the /var/dpkg after first apt update , so I need to manually fix before run apt upgrade
  • I can't make the system boot directly to armbian, I need to start Android -> insert the uSD card with armbian > go to a Terminal previously installed on Android > switch to root user (my device is factory rooted) > reboot
  • I configure the screen using h3disp with 1080p60 as I use with other boards. With the Desktop image, the tty are 1080p  and Ok but the Desktop is recognized by the TV as an 1080p but only room 3/4 of the screen.
