Old Armbian builds for Orange Pi PC

Recommended Posts

I use a OPiPC as my mqtt and smb server. Until Monday I used an older version of Armbian (something around 5.20 I think) and everything worked flawlessly. Monday i did a mistake and destroyed the sd card filesystem (i was doing a backup with dd, but i've made a mistake making the sdcard as the output file). After downloading and installing the system on a new sdcard (Armbian 5.69 on a 32gb Kingston class 10 sdcard) I've experienced a few problems:
--h3disp and h3consumption were missing (I've read that this is due them being incompatible with the latest kernel, which is sad because i'd like to turn off the ethernet and hdmi controllers as well as underclocking the cpu to keep the system cool), but it wasn't a big problem
--the system is lagging, ssh freezes constantly and sometimes it disconnects from the network by its own. I've tried installing the system on the old sd card, used another brand new 16g card, changed the psu (i use a 3.5A psu), the wi-fi adapter (normally i use a cheap MT7601U, which works fine for me, but i've tested a few tp-link dongles as well, pretty much with the same result) and even tried to use an ethernet cable to connect it to my network, but with no major differences.
I've tried the legacy image as well, but it works exactly the same.
Do someone have an older image of Armbian that has h3disp and h3consumption? Am I the only one that is experiencing this problems?

Latest modern kernel seems stable but I can't say that for MT7601U drivers ... Network manager on Jessie is half broken. 

 

Without

armbianmonitor -u

it's hard to say anything. 

Older images are here, but we only have Ubuntu Xenial - https://dl.armbian.com/orangepipc/archive/

I'm using armbian 5.73 (actually I reached that after various apt-get upgrade, I started with whatever image was available at the time), xenial, legacy kernel and I have no network problems, ssh or otherwise, (though I'm using exclusively wired ethernet).
