Power & Source of Big Ideas

I compared the DTB from the running Armbian Bionic (kernel 4.14) system (dtc -I fs /sys/firmware/devicetree/base) with the DTS from FriendlyArm (kernel 4.4) ( https://github.com/friendlyarm/linux/blob/nanopi2-v4.4.y/arch/arm64/boot/dts/nexell/s5p6818-nanopi3-common.dtsi ) They are very different.

Yes, it is enabled but it works only in a DEV branch. Don't know why not in 4.14.y

I need the possibility to use the integrated WiFi in Monitor Mode. Unfortunately i wasn´t able to set the device to monitor mode. i found out that the Ampak AP6212 used on the Neo Plus2 is in fact a Broadcom (BMC43430) WiFi Chip and a Broadcom Bluetooth Chip melted together to a single Chip. For ot...

Current Armbian has enabled hugepages and all other Docker dependencies ... it this is for Docker.

It something is missing, you can recreate the image or kernel in no time.
Since there's been 2 days between my question and its publication. I found the solution for both myself. Building a kernel is part of the documentation wiki : http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/NanoPC-T4#Compile_Lubuntu_Kernel . It's easy enough as the end product is the kernel.img file to ...
Armbian has support for this chip as well. You can try building T3 ,T3+, M3, Fire3 ... most of the things work.

Use parameter EXPERT="yes" to get access to those boards - they are still officially WIP.
But a good idea, Media script for Lubuntu was posted here:

Hello, I'm really desperate to get CVBS working. I've modified sun8i-h3.dts file following advice on https://github.com/stevenj/h3-tve/blob/v0.0.11/z01_h3-tve-11.patch.

Hi, I'am using NEO Plus 2. The board is using Linux kernel 4.14.0. I need to use CP210x usb-serail adapter with this board to interface some device. However, this board does not have cp210x.ko driver install by default. I tried to compile, but found I can not install linux-headers-4.14.0 for this b...
Armbian as well? Hi Igor, Armbian is working well. But I really want to Ubuntu. (I am totally noob here, just guessing; maybe in Armbian the gpu support is not working?! Because is extremely slow) What exactly is working slow? Youtube video? That is not supported on most of those boards. It might w...

It's a Westinghouse 1080p television. It worked fine with the previous version of Lubuntu. I have tried a couple of different attempts to get it running with other OSes available, including Armbian. The original version of Lubuntu release, although flaky and prone to restarts, is the only one that ...
any update on this? Bootlin guys are working on OS video acceleration routines and they have some testing KODI, which I assume it must also have GLES enabled ... this would mean its possible. I haven't tried this myself yet ... H5 is not supported yet AFAIK. https://linux-sunxi.org/Sunxi-Cedrus#201...
Hello igorp, indeed I started with Armbian. But there was the config tool broken and I was not able to enable 2nd and 3rd USB ... the menu simply displayed garbage ... well but thats offtopic in this thread :-) Well, config tool is not yet on the level to deal with more complex setups, like more th...
Or simply go with Armbian, where this chip is supported out of the box and with a better driver.
Yeah, this I do get, but answering a million years beside equals to not answering for me. And then wishing luck.... Anyway, no time to lose with all this, I got rid of the boards and bought another mark that should run what I need cheers //close I am sorry to offend you. Not my intent. I simply can...

It made me download ubuntu core 16.04. I don't want armbian, I took nanopi because I need its tinyness and it's ubuntu compatibility.


Armbian is 100% Ubuntu compatible and in a far better state.

Good luck :)

You will need it.
Hi! I just bought 2 nano pi neo 2 1gb ram, with wifi adapters. I'm a raspberry user, running on Windows. I used etcher to burn the Ubuntucore proposed by the wiki, plugged the sd in the slot, started with the dongle. Ok, I get it it won't work that way. So I stopped it, plugged my serial to usb don...
Updated Armbian images v5.49 for K2. Default with kernel 4.14.52, next with 4.17.3 and DEV with 4.18.RC ... all kernels received latest possible fixes ... best to go with 4.14.y for now, while on later you might experience occasional boot troubles. Debian Stretch, Bionic is still too buggy ... https...

New to embedded Linux, as I said. In general.Yocto or Buildroot are different, more complex build engines. You will need to invest a lot more time to get going ... Armbian is good for most general purpose cases, where you don't need deep control over packages/subsystems. It really depends on your s...

how do I go about the development process? How do I include my apps in the image? Armbain is more or less plain Debian/Ubuntu so you can do all application testing in x86 virtual machines (I also do that way). When you are done, use this: https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_User-Configurations...
I'm looking for some tips for development with FriendlyCore for the NanoPi NEO Core2-LTS.

Usually with nand-sata-install ... but since we haven't added this board to the officially supported list, can't tell for sure. It's not tested.
That I don't know. I actually don't use this tool. I only try it once.

I assume it just searches in your subnet, from 1-255

The "bare metal" section in the Raspberry Pi forum can give you some ideas on how-to program an ARM CPU. But for programming the Allwinner SoC we need to have details on how to create a startup.S (or similar). The ideal option is not using the U-Boot loader and have our own 'bare metal' l...

When the Neo Air is placed in a product we need a way for the user to set up its Wi-Fi settings. They will not have access to the terminal to do this.
