Where is that settings ? It wasn't like that in 4.18.12 ... Personally, I prefer keeping serial since all my boards are headless.


I fixed reality for "both" in boot script. https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/352b2584d2b168ce8701a4ece7acef5036602e3b#diff-0d8dfe4e3afafd7267b256b263a97d6f This means you have boot console to HDMI and serial console (login) is up. Previous both was nothing on the screen until login prompt. That means in some cases "no sign of life" for several minutes at first login. The only conclusion is that Armbian doesn't work.

You can add DEFAULT_CONSOLE="serial"  when building.

But in many of my post, I've encouraging Joe to get USB-TTL Serial dongle in their toolbox ...


If we don't find a better way, defaulting to serial on boards without HDMI is an option https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/boards/orangepizero.conf#L10

I did fresh reinstalls two times: updating these packages after switching to nightly builds and after switching to dev branch. That made no difference, as soon as I power cycle the dev kernel it freezes at boot regardless of the versions of these packages.


Mine hanged with current stock settings already at first boot ... then I tried orangepipc2 DT and ... it looks fine. I notice DT is missing regulator bits and after adding them ... at least that problem is gone. I did several reboots and cold starts. At one cold start it hanged ... Not sure if everything is fine yet.

 

Possible related issue is wrong temperature. It's possible that protection kicks in? When idle it already shows 50° (33 shows my IR meter) and last time when I did stressing it reached critical temp of 92° which triggered controlled power off. This should not happen this soon.

Thank you. I will switch kernel to dev and test it.

Works perfectly, thanks. 

Which overlay of this still actual?

When the latest tree is built and released and you switch to it, then you should change "cpu-clock-1.3GHz" to "cpu-clock-1.3GHz-1.3v".  You can check for this in "/boot/dtb/allwinner/overlay/".

Earlier today I pushed a fairy large patchset containing various functional improvements of many boards.  If you have Allwinner board and some spare time:

 

1. Build DEV image/kernel with https://github.com/armbian/build (you need to add EXPERT="yes" to the config to unlock)

2. Install DEV kernel from beta repository

 

  1. Optional Defreeze kernel updates
  2. Switch to nightly kernel (armbian-config -> system -> Nightly)
  3. Reboot
  4. Switch to other kernel (armbian-config -> system -> Other -> DEV)

 

As an Armbian newbie and in the hope for improvement on WIFI for Olimex Teres-1 i tried to test the update on my system. I just went for the steps 1..3 (using armbian-config). I was not able to see any option in menu to execute Step 4.

However, i can see the running kernel version as 4.19.2-sunxi64. Did i get that patch installed also without Build DEV image/kernel, Install DEV kernel?

 

WIFI from SoC still does not work after switching to nightly. Then i also inserted a proven USB WIFI dongle and this one also does not get a connection. Therefore to me it seems that the problem may be beyond the specific driver for on-board WIFI. Any remarks on this aspect?

 

Thanks

I was playing yesterday with Teres 1 and at least wifi worked ... try hard reboot and without having anything attached to the USB. If you can, build a complete new image. Wait for new patches - i have to push them up.

Have been testing on a pineh64.  kernel and uboot seem to be fine,  but something is wrong with the device tree--  The original armbian build (the 4.18 rc7-(-from icenowy, I believe--booted),  but no updates after that worked.  I recompiled her tree  from her 86-integrate-2-ugly branch and am booting fine (both from sd and eemc)  I originally noticed a complaint  about the simplefb node not being found,  but after adding that node, I still got the same kernel oops.  Before that oops,  the boot logs look  the same....  

 

I'm hoping someone can see what is wrong.  I'm afraid I'm really out of my element here.

boots with an oops at sun8i_dwmac_probe+0x16c

What I do, as a temporarily workaround, is to simply put "disabled" status on this "dwmac" node in DT, it can then boot properly...

It's not working anywhere. Kernel console is going to HDMI by default unless we have a strictly no HDMI board.

 

DVFS is working.

 

Thanks!

Those boards still need to be tested - some of them I don't have:
 

Nanopi Neo Core 2 LTS
Orange Pi R1
Pinebook A64 (know to break booting atm)
Sopine A64
Olimex Lime 2 eMMC
Nanopi Neo Air
Pine64

Do they all get an 4.19 dev kernel with the build-system?

I own a OPi R1....

While trying to test the Core2 I cant switch with "other" the kernel, but I dud already use Dev (I think) because I did build dev with the build system...

Yes, if DEV is enabled. Armbian-config way not goes for all of them.

Quick note - I just built dev for R1 and it works well - did a cursory test of 4.19.2-sunxi and wireless, USB, DVFS/cpufreq, etc. and everything works.  It does have the following warnings (as you noted previously), but the core speeds seem to work fine up to 1.3v/1.01GHz:

I did also compile for the OPi R1 - I could also successfully test the USB via the OPi NAS AddOn.

A report has been created (dont know if @5kft did this also)

I do have some lacking at the SSH-connection via eth0 :( like on a "bad" WiFi-Connection because of:

Perhaps those warnings can be cleared out even they are harmless ... @guidol tnx.  I am getting close to Pinebook(s) problems.

which Pinebook problems?
I did see that the report for the Pinebook is out of date, but there was no newer kernel as the latest report on your page.

For testing other Pinebook things - I only have a "old" Pinebook - the non-1080-one at 14"

Currently it's broken (DEV) on both. No need to test ATM. Will be probably resolved later today ... when kids go to sleep :P

I'm building an image for pine64 tonight and will test tomorrow. Will report back ASAP.

 

So I can confirm, a DEV image boots fine on my Pine64 (1G if that's important). I'll send a complete report later today. For now I can confirm that wired network is fine (Gigabit), Wifi network seems to work (scan is working but not tried to join one for now), Bluetooth don't work (nothing detected).

 

I'll test HDMI before sending the report. To confirm I tested the right image ;):
