the last image for Beelink X2 is too old


I would propose to build most recent ./compile EXPERT="yes" # to see EOS targets - that should give you latest latest, but since its unmaintained ... I have no idea if it works. Probably it does.

the internal Wi-Fi din't work


This box came with at least two different onboard wifi chips, which means you have to play with a device tree blob configuration to make it work. Drivers are most likely present in the kernel for all variants.

The temperature don't go high


If you don't have support for DVFS, CPU runs at IIRC 50 or 60% of full speed ... which is why temps will stay low.

If there and easy way


It depends who's asking :P TV boxes are without schematics and without certainty that one model is identical to the same model, which means this job is more like a hacking ...

Help Armbian team helping you!

Last question @Igor this 20GB or more are needed in /  partitiion,  or in the folder I choose to download Armbian Sript ?

Thanks.

Yes. Besides some essential system packages that may be installed via apt as common the required toolchains, the source cache stuff will be in th same directory.

One exception is ccache which will be under /home/<youruser>/.ccache

 

My current build directory without clearing anything has 41G and ccache has 4G.

Thanks @Werner I need to clean that.

I have 21GB free in the /home unit, and the script warned when only have 9GB.

I really love these pieces of junk, the Beelink X2 and the Sunvell R69, and armbian to give they a decent Linux live.

I've built fresh image for Beelink X2 on 2020-07-18. Focal with Xorg only. It looks even wifi works out of box.

Hi, I would like to ask, if you could share it again. I want to reborn one old box, and your image will be very helpful. Thank you.

Hello there !

 

I've installed the beelink x2 image but then I've upgraded it all the way to buster and using the edge kernel

 

root@beelinkx2:~# uname -a
Linux beelinkx2 6.0.7-sunxi #trunk.0103 SMP Sun Nov 6 03:49:50 UTC 2022 armv7l GNU/Linux
 

 

only problem is that I cannot get the 4 cores, just one :(

 

 

root@beelinkx2:~# cat /proc/cpuinfo 
processor    : 0
model name    : ARMv7 Processor rev 5 (v7l)
BogoMIPS    : 118.58
Features    : half thumb fastmult vfp edsp neon vfpv3 tls vfpv4 idiva idivt vfpd32 lpae evtstrm 
CPU implementer    : 0x41
CPU architecture: 7
CPU variant    : 0x0
CPU part    : 0xc07
CPU revision    : 5

Hardware    : Allwinner sun8i Family
Revision    : 0000

 

I've seen there's the overlay file available on debian but I cannot make it load as in the /boot/boot.cmd it looks for .dtbo but the only file I have is a .dto

 

root@beelinkx2:~# find /usr/lib/ -iname \*beelink\*
/usr/lib/linux-image-6.0.7-sunxi/sun8i-h3-beelink-x2.dtb

 

the debug is here

 

root@beelinkx2:~# armbianmonitor -u
System diagnosis information will now be uploaded to http://ix.io/4fm8
Please post the URL in the forum where you've been asked for.
 

 

Thanks

Dario

This is not supported hw ... Try with fresh image from https://github.com/armbian/community and install armbian-firmware-full package (via armbian-config or by hand) since there are some errors that it couldn't find firmware files.

You need to re-flash boot loader.

well I've installed the new uboot with nand-sata-install on the sd and now the 4 cores are online, thanks !

Now I have another small problem, when I try to copy the image to the internal nand I get this

 

Partition too small. Needed: 5172 MB Avaliable:  MB 

 

I've read that this particular nand is not fully supported, but I'd like to know if there's a workaround....
