Power & Source of Big Ideas

Hi, I use nanoPi M4 board and I work to improve the boot time. Initially the friendlycore image takes 28sec to start, now I can start image in 12sec (kernel and distribution optimization). I have one way to save time : uboot [0.668417 0.000026] U-Boot 2014.10-RK3399-06-ga6e7a35-dirty (Mar 31 2020 -...

I have installed friendlycore os on eMMC Core2 . I made some mistake on Python installation .

I need to reformat eMMC and reinstall the os to fix my problem.

How to format eMMC on Core2 ?

You don't format, but boot from a clean SD image and transfer the system once again.
HI , How can I login to Core 2 using SSH without knowing IP address like Raspberry Pi ? In case of Raspberry Pi , I can use ssh pi@raspberrypi.local . without knowing its IP address. Here you can do this as well. If you install AVAHI. Otherwise this way: https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Getting-...

Where did I go wrong??? If you were started with prehistoric kernel 3.4.y this is expected. On "official" images kernel remains the same. But also if you started with a bit more modern, a lot of things can go wrong from upgrade from Jessie to Buster. Start with a clean image from https://...
