<nekomancer[m]> why armbian build script download so many gcc-linaro* versions?
<nekomancer[m]> it uses all of them?
<archetech> covers alot of boardss
<nekomancer[m]> but I set one board on script invocation
<nekomancer[m]> and it downloads them long before config editor will be invoced
<nekomancer[m]> seems strange.

<[TheBug]> nekomancer[m]: they support many boards so it make easier to have in one pacakge I believe, as archetech mentioned

<Werner> Good morning.

<chewitt> morning all
<chewitt> I'm setting up an Odroid N2 for someone to do some remote V4L2 ffmpeg work on
<chewitt> I've used an image from @balbes150 as this is using the same overall kernel patch-set as my LE images
<chewitt> I need to put the device on a static IP address
<chewitt> but, I'm seeing a different MAC on each reboot
valoga has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
<chewitt> device is using "U-Boot 2019.10-armbian"
<chewitt> how to fix on Armbian? .. LE has a background service that forces a consistent MAC based on CPU serials
<Werner> Is there a mac address set in ArmbianEnv.txt in /boot?
NeuroScr has quit [Quit: NeuroScr]
<chewitt> no ArmbianEnv.txt file
<chewitt> /boot has what looks like a greatest-hits collection of boot scripts and such, so no idea which is actually being used :)
<Werner> I have no experience with Odroid tbh. I just know that at first run usually a random mac gets generated and put to this file.
<chewitt> thanks
<chewitt> I added “mac=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx” to /boot/uEnv.txt but this doesn’t seem to work
<chewitt> I created /boot/armbianEnv.txt with the same, but this doesn’t work either
<chewitt> and I also tried ethaddr/eth_mac
<chewitt> most odd
<Werner> No clue, sorry. Try search forums for mac issues.
<chewitt> I pinged Oleg .. I'll let him figure it out
<chewitt> ahh, /etc/network/interfaces

<chewitt> can anyone share a compiled Odroid C1 u-boot.bin ?
<chewitt> before I go install an ancient Ubuntu VM to compile an equally ancient u-boot :)
<IgorPec> you can grab one from our repository ... let me seek
<chewitt> top banana :)

<willmore> IgorPec, did your C4 arrive?
<IgorPec> yes, its somewhere on my desk
<IgorPec> but i could find the reason for the problem
<IgorPec> spent a day on it, nothing
<IgorPec> network sometimes fails on both kernels
<willmore> Strange.
<willmore> Glad it's not just be, at least.
<[TheBug]> Morning
<willmore> [TheBug], morning.
<willmore> tz?
<willmore> EDT here.
<IgorPec> morning
<[TheBug]> indeed.
<Tenkawa> awww so early!!!!
<Tenkawa> j/k.. same

<willmore> 4:30, but who's counting. :(
<willmore> The joys of children.
<Tenkawa> I am just a weird morning person

<Tenkawa> er
<Tenkawa> nights
* willmore was born for second shift.

<nekomancer[m]> There https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Allwinner_overlays/ written "Currently implemented only for sunxi based devices that use mainline u-boot and kernel".
<nekomancer[m]> Is it still true? I try .dto on meson N2 and it seems work
<IgorPec> yes, this was extended to rockchip/meson64
<IgorPec> but i guess nobody adjusted manual :)
<nekomancer[m]> is it normal at all — to add .dto with debian package? I think about dto for N2 RTC who not have a battery by default

<IgorPec> if overlay was made for that kernel, it should work
<IgorPec> but if it was made for some other ... no warranty. Its bets to include overlays to the kernel source with others
<nekomancer[m]> I read by link "Note: from the Linux kernel maintainer perspective all " and decide there still no rtc overlay in kernel, despite one of dev give it me on forum, means "there no work rtc on board by default, then no rtc should work in standat kernel by default".
<nekomancer[m]> then I try to invent a way to setup it separately
<IgorPec> ... which is why we have so many patches
<IgorPec> :)
<IgorPec> overlays are default disabled, so no harm is done
goregath has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<nekomancer[m]> than — why this overlay https://forum.armbian.com/topic/13566-odroid-n2-rtc-not-work-in-linux-image-current-meson6420028-5428-meson64/?do=findComment&comment=99199 not in nightly kernel? it works, if I insert in manualy, I did it.
<nekomancer[m]> it "flying around"
<IgorPec> because someone has to get code from forum and add it to the code
<Werner> .contribute
<ArmbianHelper> Armbian relys on community contributions. You can contribute as well! Find out how: https://github.com/armbian/build#contribute
<IgorPec> yeah, lots of solutions found on the forum are sadly never integrated since its simply not possible.
<nekomancer[m]> IgorPec: I see 2 your unmerged pool requests on https://github.com/armbian/build/pulls. One 16 days already.
<IgorPec> we have one from 2017
<IgorPec> and there will be a hold for two weeks now, we are preparing a release. we have close to zero time to deal with reviwing
<IgorPec> those two pool request will probably wait for after relese since they are not relevant. one might get in

<buZz> anyone here understand that 'iio' subsystem?
<buZz> i want to 'stream' accelerometer readings to a python script
<buZz> but reading the raw values in /sys takes very long
<buZz> it seems to have some buffer/reporting/time based trigger support, but i cant figure out how to use it

<nekomancer[m]> root@droid:~# armbian-add-overlay odroid-n2-ic2@1c000.dts
<nekomancer[m]> Overlays are not supported on Meson64 based boards.
<Tenkawa> my current challenge is emmc only booting on debian
<Tenkawa> everything else is working perfectly on the n2
<Tenkawa> its working fine from microsd.. however the emmc even running doesnt seem to have either a driver or dtb

<IgorPec> tenkawa: emmc works for me out of the box
<IgorPec> all kernels
<Tenkawa> thats with armbian
<Tenkawa> I'm not using armbian
macc24 has quit [Ping timeout: 256 seconds]
<IgorPec> ahaa, armbian is plain debian, just improved that it works on those boards :)
<IgorPec> it would be strange that you will be able to boot it just like that
<Tenkawa> I said explicitly debian... no customiziations
<Tenkawa> why?
<IgorPec> because there is probably no support in the kernel
<IgorPec> we added n2 not long ago and even with lots of patches it doesn't work properly yet.
<Tenkawa> theres tons of support in these kernels for most vendors except for a few (ie broadcom)
<Tenkawa> whats not working?
<IgorPec> thermal readout
<IgorPec> not critical
<Tenkawa> works great here
<IgorPec> in 5.6.y works great
macc24 has joined #armbian
<Tenkawa> yup
<Tenkawa> I use 5.6
<IgorPec> and 4.9, just not in 5.4.
<IgorPec> yeah, i am thinking to push out amlogic kernel to 5.6.y for next release, to not waste time with 5.4.y lts
<Tenkawa> the odd thing is it seems to be a u-boot handoff issue
<IgorPec> for older boards this brings little changes (C2), while modern benefits
<IgorPec> a lot of things can be ...
<Tenkawa> because the board initializes display.. writes its display info to boot. then dies
<IgorPec> debian doesn't maintain those boards ... its just what got to the mainline kernel
<IgorPec> are you sure you are not booting from SPI?
<Tenkawa> yep
<Tenkawa> i'd be getting the blinking blue if I was
<IgorPec> armbian build script is what you want to achive :)
<IgorPec> it tells how to prepare boot loader and how to load the kernel for any board thats inside
<IgorPec> userland you can use either from debian,arch, elementary ... :)
<Tenkawa> your build script is way too generalized
<IgorPec> how do you mean?
<Tenkawa> it builds for almost all of the socs
<Tenkawa> thus that one persons complaint yesterday about all the dependencies it downloaded
<IgorPec> yes, but each soc has different method
<Tenkawa> right
<nekomancer[m]> <Tenkawa "whats not working?"> no hw watchdog, no hw RTC
<Tenkawa> so why so much bulk when its not needed?
<IgorPec> one should once see Yocto :)
<Tenkawa> there should be targetting
<IgorPec> then we are talking bulk in bulk :)
<IgorPec> yes, but that costs
<Tenkawa> but much cleaner to maintainer
<IgorPec> if users would be paying, we could hire people to play with that shit ;)
<IgorPec> but now its more or less ... if this is pain, fix it
<Tenkawa> nekomancer[m]: well considering most people dont even use the rtc thats going to be a very low priority
<Tenkawa> now the watchdog
<Tenkawa> er nor
<IgorPec> WD on N2?
<Tenkawa> IgorPec: I'm working on it
<Tenkawa> the other part.. not the wd
<Tenkawa> nekomancer[m] said it didnt work not me
<nekomancer[m]> no /dev/watchdog at all with kernel 5*
<IgorPec> http://linux-meson.com/doku.php check if it was developed
<Tenkawa> on the thing I'm working on with booting I thin its a very simple problem with needing to fix my boot.ini
<Tenkawa> er think
<IgorPec> nekomancer: for Amlogic G12B family
<fizikz> IgorPec: plans for watchdog on kernel 5* for Odroid HC2/XU4? right now the watchdog service fails and i plan to disable it, though it would be useful on this type of device
<Tenkawa> IgorPec: now what does seem puzzling and maybe you can answer this one... what device type "is" the emmc? because once the nn2 is booted even on the microsd and buses rescanned the media doesnt show up
<Tenkawa> that might answer what is missing from the load
<IgorPec> fizikz: we have no budget for features development. If it works, works, but with XU4 and 5* we fight stability issues. Once that are fixed - it looks they are ... but we have a release comming. No development for 1 month
<IgorPec> Tenkawa: /dev/mmcblk*
<IgorPec> always
<Tenkawa> no.. what kernel driver.. I didnt ask what device node
<IgorPec> but it number of the device might change
<Tenkawa> I know its a mmcblk device node
<IgorPec> exact location i would need to check. its the same as SD card, under standard media driver interface
<Tenkawa> ok.. nothing exotic though
<Tenkawa> ok good
<Tenkawa> some of these boards have some exotic drivers (broadcom vchi being an example)
<IgorPec> we don't deal with broadcom :)
<Tenkawa> I wish I didnt but I have no choice'
<Tenkawa> I work on it all
<fizikz> IgorPec: sure, doesn't have to be in the next month, but is there any intention of eventually addressing it? currently: "modprobe: FATAL: Module softdog not found in directory /lib/modules/5.4.28-odroidxu4"
<IgorPec> fizikz: this is community development. I don't who should take you idea / wish?
<IgorPec> you can add this on top of other ideas https://forum.armbian.com/forum/38-feature-requests/ and wait that someone fixes. We can only maintain basics and that basics is already insane expensive
