Hey all,

I am only seeing 512MB Ram and I have a 1 GB board, anything I can do so it sees the rest of the ram? Tried to figure it out but no clue.

Thanks


You must be using wrong bootloader/image. Try correct image https://www.armbian.com/download/
Also I forgot to mention on the NanoPi wiki it says: This means you need to insert this SD card into some Linux computer. Some deskop Linuxes "mount" this removable media (USB keys, SD cards, ...) automatically, on others you need to mount it manually . Than edit referred files, "unm...
I tried it on the NeoAir last night. I liked that it was nicely striped down and lean. however you could clearly see on boot up and shutdown that it was slower than the FriendlyElec image release. If i had to guess why maybe because of the CPU frequency setting, but that is just a guess. Honestly I...
Hello all, I'm trying to change the boot command line parameters on the Nanopi, in order to isolate one of the CPUs. This is pretty straightforward on an x86 machine via the GRUB line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="isolcpus=1" However on Arm-Uboot you have to do it with the 'fw_setenv' util...
Anything??? Try if you can make this work: https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-m3/ There, this is supported out of the box . If you have some time and experience, you can try building the image with a modern kernel (4.4.111) on your own. https://github.com/armbian/config - ./compile.sh INSTALL_HEADERS=&...
https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-duo/ Works! If you want kernel 4.14.y switch to a beta repository with armbian-config. ok, thank you I guess, but how does this have anything to do with my post ? Edit: I checked out armbian.com, trying it now on the NeoAir, so fat looks like a great thing. Armbian is...

Works!

I was thinking of Armbian too and would actually prefer it (I have an Orange Pi PC running with Armbian for over a year now without issues, great work, thanks!). However, the last time I tried Armbian ethernet did not work and the board did not boot: http://www.friendlyarm.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f...

Thank you @Maroon5

Also, what its the u-boot repository for this image ?
It is needed too.


You can build 4.4 kernel also within Armbian. Working for me.

I am running my Neo Plus 2 with the official Ubuntu image, which was available in July 2017 (kernel 4.11.2), flashed to emmc. Today I noticed there are new official images with kernel 4.14 available for downloading. How can I upgrade to this version? Alternatively, is it possible to backup all my a...
I was able to fix this by mounting the boot partition from the provided xenial sd-card image and examining their boot setup, which includes these two magic lines: fdt addr ${dtb_addr} fdt set mmc${boot_mmc} boot_device <1> "boot_device" is an undocumented (and poorly named?) DTB property....
And scroll down until you get to Boot System from SSD . Does the boot work without a TF/uSD-Card? and does it boot a TF/uSD-Card when inserted? Sounds like a u-boot setting..... Not possible. U-boot must be somewhere - on SD card. On Armbian, this is even more simple (type nand-sata-install) and mo...

Since it's release there has been no new official rom image yet. Whats the holdup ? There is a working Armbian for Duo. Try it and report if you find something not working. It will be fixed ASAP and it will certainly get updates. When using beta development repository, this means you are getting up...
I would also be interested in Linux 4.x support for the NanoPi M3. I'm specifically looking for a board that will support power management and LVDS LCD panels. Would you please check with the vendor to see when they plan to support Linux 4.x? You can try these: https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-m3/ Wo...
Great!

We plan to start actively promoting Debian Stretch when last few bugs are solved. They (known) are cosmetic and affect desktop builds, while CLI should already be fine.

Welcome to push changes.
I have noticed strange problem with ap6212: when some device is connected to NanoPi M3 on Bluetooth, Wifi speed drops dramatically. When Bluetooth is off, I have WiFi speed about 2 MB/s. When Bluetooth is turned on, WiFi speed drops slightly, although it is still acceptable... But when some Bluetoo...
Hello, Many thanks for your very useful hints! I have tried in the meanwhile Armbian, on this the Mosquitto installation works perfectly.

Better try with https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-neo/ or http://dietpi.com which delivers a more complete linux .) It surely runs on Armbian , since it's a clean and bloat/spyware free Linux.

You might check those: https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-k2/ They are not perfect, but certainly better. I tried patching armbian u-boot and it worked a lot better than default ubuntu (mostly because of the crappy default u-boot!): Linux is stable and hdmi is working even after re-plugging it but it h...
Yes, this should be stable but what is more important - it comes with long-term support. Updates to firmware come standard Debian way. I am not sure everything is working perfectly since this is usually seen when you work with it for weeks. We didn't put this image through our regular testing proces...
Update.
After months of hard work, Armbian has come out with first stable test image (CLI or desktop) with a modern kernel 4.13.5. Welcome to check out what and how it works. Beware that (minor) troubles are still expected - but now we would like to hunt them. If you don't want to receive daily updates and ...

Thanks for your quick answer. I tried building for Neo Air with arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc and it works for me too without any error.

Third solution. I don't use neither Ubuntu/Debian/Armbian but Yocto for eMMC.

Get Armbian and this (headers are already installed by default) will work out of the box. With much more recent and fixed kernel.
When I use the serial console, there is no problem. But over ssh, there is considerable lag, sometimes freezing for several seconds. It will freeze both ssh connections if there are 2. I think this lead to wifi. The raspberry pi doesn't have this problem. Are there wifi parameters to adjust? Disabl...

Take a look at this:

https://github.com/igorpecovnik/lib

Nano Pi Neo and Air are fully supported. Image can be burn directly to internal eMMC, where possible (Neo Air) and serial console can be accessed via USB port, so you don't need to solder anything.

Note that kernel 4.9 is not yet working properly ... 3.4.113 is working just fine, within Debian Jessie or Ubuntu Xenial, etc.

It might, but NEO needs slightly different configuration. So you might need to change it prior to boot or after if it boots ok.
