Download Armbian for this board and plug your adaptor. It will just work.

There is no BIOS on those little ARM boards.

Standard ... you mean HDMI audio? I don't know for CLI images, but on desktop HDMI is default IIRC.

alsamixer ?

Simple but powerful Debian like OS build system with (upstream) kernel + lots of dedicated patches for those boards. not found in buildroot or elsewhere.
+1 I am also curious about this. I was previously running the 2018-12-19 release of FriendlyDesktop where Samsung 870 was working fine. I just updated to the 2019-06-25 and now the drive is no longer detected. I am running Samsung 960 PRO 512GB on T4 without a problem. (latest Armbian Bionic version)
Sorry, I am a newbie! I asked a question on askubuntu.com and they put my question on halt because it is not a question about ubuntu. So Friendly Desktop is not ubuntu. From this forum I do not get answers. So who will answer such simple questions like How to change keyboard layout? If it is not ub...
I have the SOM-RK3399 dev board and it's working very well so far. The only issue is that the fan on the heat sink isn't spinning. I'm running ARMBIAN 5.85 stable Ubuntu 18.04.2 on the SOM. Is there something in the FA Linux distro that enables the fan? 1st do the update to 5.90 ... there has been ...

packages to update when I apt update?


FA doesn't provide updates.

I know my opinion is based, but Armbian has many advantages especially when we come to CLI/server cases. Its not just removing stuff which you might not need and only takes some space on your SD card.

Is the isp1 Driver included? rk gstreamer with dual camera supported?


It's up2date with FriendlyARM sources which means its there ... but untested since I don't have any cameras.
I'm not extremely well-versed when it comes to building custom kernels And that's one of the primary reasons why this project started five years ago.

igorp, thanks for the reply. Just most people want to have a finished product in the form of an operating system image. And with the RK3399 everything is not at all clear.

We probably should turn to wizards or magicians to find out the details of your problem ... What kind of operating system? Which version? Is there a graphical shell? If you are not ready to provide more detailed data to help you, then put Armbian, nothing will work there either, but this is the sta...

Or you use Armbian build engine which does that (and much more) - pick the right compiler - for your. It can save you a lot time.
