Or it will not be solved?


It will not be solved - its a chip design ( Allwinner) problem.

Someone mentioned in the DietPi GitHub issues page Don't believe every BS you read on the internet.

OK thanks. But how long the Allwinner SoC will be in production? 10/15/20 year?
I am working on many industrial project need need longevity support for the chipset


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. Perhaps you don't know that armbian does not, in reality, behave any differently than any other distro. To me it looks like you have no ide...

What knowledge is available that will help to improve the nanopc-t4's functionality under Linux. It is clearly possible, just not outside of the friendlyarm ecosystem. Armbian is a proof that it is possible. It is a demonstration that we can do some improvements, but until 95% of the costs that are...
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. Its a development kernel per se and it has best support for hardware until all features are mainlined. ...
Hello, Will you be contributing a device tree to the Linux kernel so that linux can support these boards properly? Also are there plans to make the device drivers available to the 5.x kernel via dkms? I find that your ancient pre-packaged linux kernel and Ubuntu are insufficient for my use of this ...
Added Ubuntu Focal variant and a few other fixes.

Sorry Igor I didn't understand what you mean. FriendlyArm images are proof of concept. Its a demonstration that it can run Linux.

Now proceed with manual: https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Getting-Started/ and act upon it.
Try. If you have previously recorded to this SD card systems from Frendlyelec or other systems (or the card came with a pre-installed system), you will have to completely erase the SD card before recording Armbian. Systems from Frendlyelec use GPT, which blocks the normal launch of other systems fr...

Are you saying to try different sd card, different power supply?


Yes. Just different, to rule out SD card and PSU defects ... At least SD cards are troublesome. Make sure to use images from here: https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-m4-v2/

Does LED lights flashes after a while when you add power?
- different SD card
- different power supply
- no eMMC attached
- correct image (for M4 V2 ,not for M4)

This is, I believe, the second time I ask a question here and get a response from you advertising Armbian, Igor.

How to format eMMC on Core2 ?


You don't format, but boot from a clean SD image and transfer the system once again.
HI , How can I login to Core 2 using SSH without knowing IP address like Raspberry Pi ? In case of Raspberry Pi , I can use ssh pi@raspberrypi.local . without knowing its IP address.
