Armbian-Config > System doesn't show "Hardware" as a menu option

Recommended Posts

I downloaded Armbian_5.59_Orangepizero_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113.img, and am running it with a 16GB SD card. I am trying to modify the I2C settings, however, when I type `armbian-config`, and select `System`, there is no "Hardware" menu option. This contradicts the documentation: Hardware is supposed to be an option in that menu.

 

This is the current content of the /boot/armbianEnv.txt:

verbosity=1
console=both
overlay_prefix=sun8i-h3
overlays=usbhost2 usbhost3
rootdev=UUID=54dfde69-e472-48dd-a099-636a963154f3
rootfstype=ext4
usbstoragequirks=0x2537:0x1066:u,0x2537:0x1068:u

Any ideas why it does or doesn't? I've tried with both new SD cards, new Pis, and both copies of a saved, modified .img as well as the fresh .img, and haven't yet seen Hardware as an option

@Igor I think this is different than the issue 33 that you linked to, because that issue allows the user to select Hardware, but once selected, all the entries are empty. My case is different because Hardware isn't even an option in the System settings:

I was able to resolve it by installing the following package: linux-dtb-dev-sun8i. If you have the same issue, I'd recommend running:

apt install linux-dtb-dev-sun8i

Well, this means you have break system due to upgrading a kernel package and not installing DTB. For a DEVelopment kernel. Clean images must come with this package.
