<Tony_mac32> RK3399 was a chromebook processor, like the RK3288
<Tony_mac32> I have seen it in a tablet or two, but the power hungry beastie was intended to be strapped to a bigger power supply
<nekomancer[m]> common love to sudo totally insane. that goal to place it everywhere. silver bullet. panacea.
<Tony_mac32> sudo su
<nekomancer[m]> sudo su -
<nekomancer[m]> but why should I do it at all, if no other human users required, and no tasks other that administration on computer performed?
<nekomancer[m]> it's like «best practices» for password complexity
<nekomancer[m]> no one human can safely follow it — but it's not a recommender's problem.
<nekomancer[m]> sudo on routers, on single task servers — for what? — because of fuck you!
<nekomancer[m]> someone smart somewhere did this recommendation for some envirounment
<nekomancer[m]> then idiots think it will be good for all everywhere everytime.
<nekomancer[m]> and now we have tons of admins who know "it is good" from school.

<IgorPec> sensille: apt.armbian.com is round robin redirector on our mirrors
<IgorPec> with armbian, kernel is 1st class citizen .. userland does not matter
<IgorPec> if you had stretch with kernel Y it will remain kernel Y on buster, you need to switch it via armbian-config or by hand
khelair has joined #armbian
<khelair> Hi everybody. Just got the latest stable armbian set up on my cubieboard2 here. I was wondering, when I run nand-sata-install, I'm not getting the option to boot from NAND and have primary storage/filesystem on SD; in fact I've only got one option available, and that's Install/Update the bootloader on SD/eMMC, which is _really_ not the configuration that I'd like at all here.. Is there any way I can
<khelair> go about changing this?

<TRS-80> Good morning
<stipa> gday
<lanefu> mornin
* TRS-80 sips coffee
* TRS-80 nods
* lanefu sips coffee from his armbian mug
<TRS-80> thinking about getting some swag, actually :)
<TRS-80> 'Murrica! :D
<TRS-80> also, fledgling greybeard, nice
<stipa> nekomancer[m]: archetech It sux
<[TheBug]> khelair: allwinner SoC will always prefer booting SDcard anyways if you have one present, so if you are gonna run the whole system from SDcard to begin with, then there is no reason not just to have the bootloader, etc on the SDcard as well
<TRS-80> I didn't realize we sold Armbian panties
<[TheBug]> khelair: even if you wan to run on emmc and you decide you want to have sdcard present for storage, as will still prefer sdcard you will still likely need uboot and such on the sdcard still and set to load root from correct device
<[TheBug]> khelair: hope that helps, bbl
<IgorPec> TRS-80: i only carry armbian pants and socks :)
<TRS-80> IgorPec: look at pic lanefu posted, lol
<IgorPec> haha :) thats the spirit!

<TRS-80> any other fans of Harbor Freight in here (I would guess maybe lanefu and/or Tony)?
<lanefu> duh
<TRS-80> I wrote some script to download hfqpdb.com website every morning. It also parse my todo.txt file for certain keyword and lot numbers and compare the two. If any matches I receive an XMPP message like: https://paste.debian.net/hidden/f277c4e1/
<TRS-80> It runs every morning at this time, the message just popped up. :)
<stipa> There's a stoner guy on freenode who buys weed that way
<stipa> on discounts
<stipa> at first i din't even know what he was taking about, later i realized it's news about discounts in various shops
<lanefu> TRS-80: uhmmm i want this
<TRS-80> lanefu: Maybe this motivate me to post it somewhere finally, lol
<lanefu> uhh yeah
<TRS-80> Been meaning to. It's been working fine for me for some time now. And I even reach out to hfqpdb.com guy and he is OK with it.
<lanefu> so this scrapes a scraper
<TRS-80> hfqpdb is not a scraper, rather a site where people post (scans of) coupons
<TRS-80> searchable by lot number, name, you should check it out if you are not familiar
<TRS-80> I no longer bother clipping coupons
<TRS-80> just pull up on phone in store
rneese has joined #armbian
<TRS-80> it does a little scraping I guess, it will pull the current price of an item and tell you if you are better off using a 20% coupon instead of an item coupon

cpu0-on-fire has joined #armbian
<cpu0-on-fire> heya guys :) I've been trying to get wifi working on my orange pi 0, and unfortunately every time I run 'ip l set wlan0 up' it responds with invalid argument. I grabbed the firmware for xr819 directly from armbian, and I also built the latest commit for the kernel module. I was wondering if armbian has patches on top of the kernel to somehow make this work ? I couldn't find anything in the
<cpu0-on-fire> repositories on github. Can someone give me some hints/help with this ? I would appreciate it very much. I'm using buildroot
<cpu0-on-fire> feel free to redirect me to another channel if this isn't proper :)
<cpu0-on-fire> the repo I use for the kernel module is this one
<TRS-80> cpu0-on-fire: Specifically, I am not sure, although in general often that is the case as we do apply a lot of patches.
<cpu0-on-fire> I figured :)
<cpu0-on-fire> but where could I find these, if any ?
<TRS-80> also, is NM running? I think it is by default and that can interfere?
<TRS-80> although maybe not get invalid argument from that
<cpu0-on-fire> yeah it runs, but even so its still saying invalid argument. Even nm is acting up
<stipa> trz ifconfig
<stipa> try*
<stipa> ifconfig wlan0 up
<cpu0-on-fire> ah
<cpu0-on-fire> invalid argument
<stipa> bummer
<cpu0-on-fire> everything was built from source, with buildroot
<cpu0-on-fire> even kernel is vanilla
<stipa> cpu0-on-fire: can you bring Ethernet up?
<cpu0-on-fire> I'm not sure. I don't have ethernet :/ I'm too far from the router
<TRS-80> cpu0-on-fire: come on man
<TRS-80> It says right on main page https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-zero/ "Onboard wireless module (XR819) has poor software support so wireless connection issues are expected"
<cpu0-on-fire> yes
<cpu0-on-fire> and yet I know people had it working, plus, it currently works on armbian
<cpu0-on-fire> I'm trying to reproduce this on buildroot
<TRS-80> Does it work? So you are saying that note is out of date?
<cpu0-on-fire> poor support howerver, I definitely agree on that
<cpu0-on-fire> I don't think its out of date, exactly
<cpu0-on-fire> the software itself should run, but problems can be expected
<stipa> cpu0-on-fire: ifconfig eth0 up
<stipa> does it spit the same error?
<cpu0-on-fire> stipa: ah, that works even without a cable plugged in ? Nice
<cpu0-on-fire> leme try
<cpu0-on-fire> nop
<cpu0-on-fire> no error
<stipa> is your wifi card actually wlan0? check with 'iwconfig' command
<cpu0-on-fire> yeah it is
<stipa> ok
<cpu0-on-fire> I tripple checked, and also nm is complaining up a storm about it
<stipa> hang around, maybe someone can help
<TRS-80> or make forum post, you may get better response that way
<cpu0-on-fire> heh, will hang around, that's no problem
<cpu0-on-fire> I wasn't sure I would be well received, given this is specific to armbian, but I didn,t know where to ask anymore ;)
<TRS-80> It IS or IS NOT specific to Armbian?
<cpu0-on-fire> I mean, for all I know its because of some obscure gcc optimisation or god knows what else that differ in my build that's causing this to fail
<cpu0-on-fire> I specified in my original question, plus at least one more time that my issue was that I try to replicate what armbian did to get the wifi working, on buildroot
<TRS-80> OK I guess buildroot is not Armbian (I am not a dev, just try to help out)
<cpu0-on-fire> no no
<cpu0-on-fire> its okay :)
<cpu0-on-fire> buildroot is a tool that generates linux based OS directly from source
<cpu0-on-fire> a bit like lfs, but far less complicated, using kconfig and make
nihilazo has joined #armbian
<nihilazo> hi, I'm having trouble with armbian on my odroid-HC4, it won't boot. The card gets monunted but doesn't boot, other images seem to work fine
<TRS-80> cpu0-on-fire: Maybe try import known working (vanila) Armbian setup into buildroot and see if it works, before making any changes?
<cpu0-on-fire> I'm sorry if I sounded harsh, that was not my intention at all; I've been at this for at least a full day right now, so I'm not as patient as I was when I started. But that was no reason to sound nasty and I'm really sorry
<TRS-80> cpu0-on-fire: you don't sound nasty to me
<cpu0-on-fire> hehe great then :) I'm glad I don't sound nasty
<cpu0-on-fire> at the point where I'm at, I might as well try that, put the kernel config of armbian in there and see whatever comes up of it
<TRS-80> cpu0-on-fire: then make incremental changes, just a thought
<cpu0-on-fire> yeah, trying to narrow down where it all goes to hell
sensille has left #armbian [#armbian]
drobo_00 has joined #armbian
<TRS-80> I am not sure if builroot accepts exact config or how that works / translates, but it's probably a more solid path, generally speaking
<TRS-80> cpu0-on-fire: If you get it working, make a blog or forum post, I am sure others might be iunterested?
<TRS-80> nihilazo: If no one reply in here, maybe you add your $0.02 to that post (and maybe do anyway)
<cpu0-on-fire> :) yep will certainly do that
<cpu0-on-fire> I'm all for helping others
<cpu0-on-fire> besides that, if it really fails… If the armbian kernel config doesn't solve the problem, then it must mean there are patches on top somehow
<TRS-80> Armbian is usually pretty cutting edge (depending on dev time and support level) but this is a Supported board, so...
<TRS-80> you may need t odig / investigate, whatever you find, please report back
<TRS-80> i.e., a forum post, patch if appropriate, etc.
<cpu0-on-fire> sure
<cpu0-on-fire> for what its worth, I did a strace if ip link back then although I guess it wouldn,t be useful to anyone but actual devs
<TRS-80> put it in dev area, since it's supported board; forums are full of such little nuggets
<TRS-80> someone come by years later and find it, etc.
<cpu0-on-fire> http://ix.io/2Evo in case someone feels like having a look ;)
<cpu0-on-fire> aye, I shall
<cpu0-on-fire> I'm no coder, but building a system is generally no big deal, unless I hit a nasty showstopper like this one here
<stipa> nihilazo: that board is marked as "No official support (CSC)" https://www.armbian.com/download/?device_support=No+official+support+(CSC)
<cpu0-on-fire> lets give it a run, then… armbian kernel config for orange pi
manpaz has joined #armbian
<nihilazo> what does CSC mean?
<TRS-80> Community Support only
<nihilazo> ah ok
<TRS-80> i.e., not supported
<nihilazo> got it
<TRS-80> nihilazo: Well, you can try in P2P is what that means :) https://forum.armbian.com/forum/25-common-issues-peer-to-peer-technical-support/
<TRS-80> nihilazo: Also, please read basic things at https://docs.armbian.com/
<nihilazo> ok, sorry
<stipa> it looks to me like an SBC marketed to NAS Market.
<[TheBug]> nihilazo: does it freeze after trying to start the ramdisk?
<cpu0-on-fire> stipa: its about it, yes
<[TheBug]> nihilazo: do you have output you can pastebin?
<nihilazo> I posted that forum thread, my output is almost the same with a few numbers different
<nihilazo> like, a few id
<nihilazo> although it shouldn't be a problem, I found another debian image that will work for what I need other than armbian
<[TheBug]> nihilazo: if it was me I would try switching out the uinitrd with one from older image / kernel -- I had some experiences with other SBC where something similar happen cause something is broken in the initrd, using older version resulted in working -- couldx for sure be a bug but thats possibly one way you can test
<TRS-80> nihilazo: If you need howto on that, can be found https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Recovery/#replacing-boot thanks to some nice fellows working on docs ;)
<stipa> We would be lost without that brave souls!
<[TheBug]> if it is initrd issue then at least it can be reported and maybe someone can work to fix it -- could also have to do with different revisions of the board as well, where I have seen a board like ESPRESSOBin which has v4,v5 and v7 where new image will boot on v5 but not v7 or on v4 and v5 but is broken on v7... why I say its not so uncommon per se
<[TheBug]> (caused by uinitrd incompatability)

<stipa> how long does the battery last?
<rneese> nice means you dont have to open it
<nekomancer[m]> it's sad I have to take off shield and disconnect storage chip from N2 just to test current armbian build on sdcard.
<nekomancer[m]> I want a way to get a boot from sdcard if sdcard is bootable and boot from nvme if ssd not present or not bootable.
<rneese> well look at the spi
<rneese> on the n2
<rneese> you can select the boot
jock has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<rneese> they set it to all but you can chane it to look for sd card first
<rneese> then a nvme/usb drive
jock has joined #armbian
<rneese> so if the sd is not there it then goes to nvme
<nekomancer[m]> <rneese "you can select the boot"> is it possible with headless N2?
<rneese> you have to connect to hdmi and boot spi
<rneese> via front switch
<rneese> and change how it boots
<rneese> then fron there on out it will look for what order you set
<rneese> brb have to look at something other room
<emOne> rneese: it is a bit sad how the macbook pro will only have 16gb of ram
<rneese> on a arm64 cpu that will kick butt
<rneese> I would ant to cracl it and put linux on it
<rneese> they have 64bit memmory not 64bit cpu 32 bit channel ram

<rneese> yesbut nice to know there is a option
<rneese> but I have to work on a ups board for the n2
<stipa> macos sux, they drop support and you can fuck yourself,you can't install new chrome for example and stuff like that, i have an old macbook with dosdude1 hack.
<rneese> cool

<emOne> 64GB is the maximum ram they use toay
<stipa> video guys need lots of ram

<nekomancer[m]> <rneese "but I have to work on a ups boar"> isn't around generic 201x-designed ups board? configurable size and type of batteries, output and input voltage, usb and/or uart interface for diagnostic and management. Is it so complicated for the beginning of 21st century?
<DigitalMan1983_> how does one go about applying a dts overlay?
<DigitalMan1983_> is it an overlays= in the armbianEnv.txt?
<rneese> sorrywas asleep
<rneese> knee was hurting so I layed down
<rneese> for the most part the ops for a n2 should not be hard
<rneese> I just have to put it in eagle ca and do it

<fromport> any suggestion for usb wifi dongles for sbc's that don't have them built in?
<TRS-80> something atheros, so you can run it completely in freedom
<fromport> ty
<TRS-80> There are actually practical benefits, too. For instance, no need for drivers/firmware when booting Live CD / USB...
<TRS-80> I mean, there are certain Atheros (not all) so check
<TRS-80> that are available with completelt free drivers
<nekomancer[m]> <DigitalMan1983_ "is it an overlays= in the armbia"> only on rockchips with mainline uboot yet
<fromport> TRS-80: first one i find that i could like, this pops up: https://ninja4it.wordpress.com/2015/04/05/inside-linux-and-wi-fi-atheros-ar9271-drivers/
<fromport> old though
<TRS-80> old is not necessarily bad
<TRS-80> esp with drivers
<TRS-80> That sounds familiar, that chipset. Let me try and find the list I was working from. Another way is go to some hardware vendor like ThinkPenguin that sells only FSF certified gear, and see what they sell.
<nekomancer[m]> fromport: usb wifi dualband

<TRS-80> fromport: Here is the only USB adapter I found on ThinkPenguin: https://www.thinkpenguin.com/gnu-linux/penguin-wireless-n-usb-adapter-gnu-linux-tpe-n150usb
<nekomancer[m]> TRS-80: sorry, I miss that fromport want a free driver :(
<TRS-80> FSF Respects Your Freedom certified
<TRS-80> he was not explicit about it, but seem interested anyway
<nekomancer[m]> both adapter I use on a Reatek 8811AU chip
<TRS-80> The way I see it, if you are buying anyway, might as well go all the way, less hassle
<rneese> they are cheap and eaasy to get pref rtl 88xx

<rneese> there aare loads of dongles but look at the supported hardware list first

<khelair> hello everybody. Can anyone help me figure out what /dev/ device an external drive is being added as? I'm not able to find notice of it in any of the logs or anything :|
<nekomancer[m]> try lsblk
<nekomancer[m]> but if nothing in logs — ho hope.
<khelair> oh... yeah it looks like I've got a hosed USB port on this cubieboard2. there should be something now, the drive lights came on that time. heh
