Power & Source of Big Ideas

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. Build system outcome is an improved version of FA image. Latest version was released yesterday https://twitter.com/armbian/status/1144479420242989057...

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. No one can make a GOOD BASE version for a long time. What is the reason I don’t know, but I see the 3399 as a buggy chip that t...
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...

You need to be using the correct compiler.


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.

Possible but its recommended to follow those instructions: https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Getting-Started/#how-to-prepare-a-sd-card They were written to save your time and to lower unnecessary supp...
Here we have troubles already with basic STA Dafont 192.168.1.1l FileHippo functionality. Sometimes it does not see AP and sometimes it doesn't want to connect. Slow speed is the last thing you need to worry about. I haven't tried if you are able to run dual mode. I doubt. 3. Can I install MPD/MPC/...

Perhaps try https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-fire3/
It comes with more recent kernel and many additional fixes.

Nope. It doesn't. Debian packages update is irrelevant.

It's demo/proof of concept image and (Dietpi) is a rebranding (with some user space mods) of the same creation. Without any low level change.

Yes, you have all rights to be wrong :)

Armbian supports Docker OOB.

Wifi works on M4 and MIPI camera support should also work since we use the same kernel (default images) with a few fixes.

OK. But I have no choice. Just 120 measuring units with FriendlyElec Linux distro on it. No way to change to another distro. Why?
