Power & Source of Big Ideas

Hi all! I currently can not find the eflash image friendlycore-xenial_4.14 for Nanopi NEO CORE. Only found nanopi-neo-core_eflasher_openwrt_4.14_armhf_YYYYMMDD.img.zip. But when i boot the board had this issue: Failed to mount /mnt/sdcard. Could anyone help me? Thank you. Perhaps try this approach:...

I might want to evaluate M4 and have my truck all set. I've been glancing through the discussion and couldn't discover anything.

Is there a connector I have to run nvme ( M.2 2280 ) on the NanoPi M4?


That's on T4. With M4 it comes with a case / addon.

Hi

If there is a sdcard the NanoPi R1 boots of sdcard.

I want boot from emmc first.

I want this boot sequence.

1) emmc
2) sdcard

Thanks

Best Regards

Hi

Is it possible to change the boot order on a NanoPi R1 , Ubuntu 16.04.7 LTS 4.14.111

Thank you so much

From where do you want to boot from?

Thanks for the replies. @igorp, I was able to install armbian, and although the power LED still blinks as it did, I can now access the device through the network! Using armbian-config, I generated a diag file (http://ix.io/2AVD) to see what is going on. Other than a reference to ledtrig-cpu (the bl...
I've been using a R2S board for a while and after rebooting it to apply a new configuration option (port forwarding), the device's power LED started blinking. 2 blinks per second approx. The unit is no longer responding to pings, etc. I tried flashing a new copy of the FriendlyWrt image and I get t...
Thank you I know about armbian... but the support and compatibility is not the same as with a specific image including all available peripherals. Its not the same true, its probably better. Hardware wise and also on userland level. Legacy kernel is the same: https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/ma...

I think you are biased toward armbian. I want to figure out the exact steps without using third party tools Yes I am biased, but I am showing you the fastest track to build and learn.

To me, https://github.com/friendlyarm/sd-fuse_rk3328 seems more digestible than armbian. Armbian is a huge codebase. Understanding a huge code base is more difficult than reading documents. That code base is preparing things to compile u-boot. With Armbian you run ./compile "u-boot" and i...
I use either gentoo or artix linux. In ARM single board computers you have to forget about the "luxury" of distro hopping. Analyzing armbian is difficult. Analysing RAW material, the source of that, is more complicated. That's what I am trying to tell you. Difference between Gentoo and Ar...

Is NanoPi R2s going to be soon supported by mainline linux and mainline u-boot?


For that you will have to look elsewhere.

... Armbian runs improved mainline u-boot / kernel combo :)

Things are far more complex :D Armbian kills great portion of that complexity and I agree it could be done more.

Ok, understood. I can send the rk3328-nanopi-neo3-rev02.dts if I have an email address. Please note, the rk3328-codec is not supported on Neo3, instead the pcm5201a codec has been configured, this works fine. This https://docs.armbian.com/Process_Contribute/ is best/recommended/most convenient way....
not clear what you are trying to express Armbian implementation could be few months quicker and we already provide mainline 5.8.y based kernels with many specific and general problems fixed. armbian did not work either. Yeah, DT is the same. https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/board...

OK thanks. But how long the Allwinner SoC will be in production? 10/15/20 year?

You will need to contact Allwinner for that info. IMO for right quantity, no limits.

Hi,

can anybody tell me the Longevity Strategy support of Allwinner H3 SoC? It looks like it was released in 2014.


Don't worry about. Support is almost fully mainlined by now.

I don't understand why you continue to spout the same meaningless diatribe no matter what the question or subject of the post is. Meaningless? Read once again.

Friendly is using a very old kernel, 4.?? which they have modified with lcd device drivers and a device tree 'dts'. This is the kernel where this hardware was brought up and shipped with the SoC.
