<stipa> it has only 1GB of ram and no HDMI audio yet so i can't use it for TV box but if audio gets going i'll try to put desktop environment on it
<stipa> rneese: so, it's TV box wannabe as well

<tonitch> Hey, I want to install armbian on my orangepi zero and I have the choice between Buster and focal on the website... what's the difference? is this a version name as debian does ?
<tonitch> in that case, I can't find the page where it's writen :'(
<HerculeP> Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS (Focal Fossa)
<HerculeP> buster is Debian 10
<HerculeP> igor was faster ;)
<IgorPec> armbian is the reason you don't throw the boars away and focal / buster / ... is the name of the outfit, application level
<IgorPec> :)
<tonitch> nice
<tonitch> i'm used to use alarm on all my boards... I wanted to test armbian... and I just droped in ^^ sorry
<tonitch> is there a page where all these fancy names are explained ?
<tonitch> for comparison
<IgorPec> no, there is no comparisson about that
<IgorPec> you have to know which to select
<HerculeP> that page would be google ;)
<IgorPec> so if you came from arch world, huh
<IgorPec> normallly we provide latest stable variants
<IgorPec> in Ubuntu, this is Focal, with Debian Buster
<tonitch> I think I prefer debian over ubuntu soo I will just pick buster ^^ and that's it
<tonitch> I think
<tonitch> thanks :D
<IgorPec> the difference between Debian and Ubuntu ... better Google for. Core technical difference is different package versions
<[TheBug]> stipa: actually ment to say thanks to you for mentioning the USB power management options to change spin down -- some reason I hadn't thought about that - grabbed powertop last night and got it to 'on' instead of 'auto' for USB and seems to be keeping drive online now without delayed spin-up.
<IgorPec> in principle yes, but its not that simple
<IgorPec> it depends what you will use your hw for
<IgorPec> some applications are suited better for Debian, some for Ubuntu
<IgorPec> but in general we as Armbian, don't stick our nose in those problems. Which is why, we build both and user chose
<HerculeP> easy to prepare two SD cards and check out for yourself
<tonitch> yhea that's cool, in fact, I will crete my own app and for the first time (not a project I will personaly use) I don't trust alarm 100%
<tonitch> btw these are desktop images ?
<tonitch> and there is no CLI images there ? :'(
<HerculeP> desktop is part of the name if it is DT
<tonitch> HerculeP: I'm running out of sd card :p I bought some but they will arrives in some weeks
<IgorPec> where are no CLI images?
<Werner> Those are all cli images. desktop on zero would not make sense anyways
<IgorPec> almost all have CLI images
* HerculeP shrugs
<Werner> The only "board" I know that has no cli images is the pbp
<tonitch> i'm lost x) on the doc, they say that Bionic and Buster are desktop images
<IgorPec> where??
<tonitch> yhea
<IgorPec> but previous line says one Debian and one Ubuntu CLI
<IgorPec> and prior to this "usually"
<tonitch> anyway, i'll take buster and try it :p
<IgorPec> ok
<tonitch> worst case i'll just remove desktop
<IgorPec> there no desktop
<IgorPec> 100%
<tonitch> ok thanks ^^
<Werner> I'll adjust the docs to make it more clear
<tonitch> hoo x) just noticed that bullseye buster are the name of debian x) i'm dumb I should have trained my google-fu :'(
<tonitch> i'm just used to find everything on the doc ^^
<IgorPec> no docs is complete :(
<tonitch> yhea but they are often more than usefull
<tonitch> and they give a getting started that is often a strong anchor point
<IgorPec> armbian is upgrade on top of debian and on top of linux
<Werner> This what to download thing should be more clear now once the docs are rebuilt
<tonitch> thanks :D Werner
<Werner> youre welcome. we appreciate your feedback to the docs. only with this we can make it better
<ArmbianTwitter> @botter_nidnul (~b🦦-nidnul): @YaoHL5 Armbian is your best option. The port might be in OTG mode? There's a switch on the bottom side of the board between the USB2 and USB 3 ports. (28s ago)
<HerculeP> btw, the torrent links on are still 20-11-10 :(
<IgorPec> which?
<HerculeP> and Focal Desktop is missing although provided in /archive/
<IgorPec> for c2?
<[TheBug]> I can't figure out, is that last tweet talking about rk3399 , in that case Legacy image only support single USB 3.0 port that I know and yes there is a switch like that guy mentions to toggle host / otf mode
<HerculeP> yup, I only own a c2
<HerculeP> two infact
<IgorPec> all are working for me
<IgorPec> can you supply a link
<IgorPec> this is not done yet
<HerculeP> ah, nvm, Focal DT is under "other downloads"
<HerculeP> but torrent link points at 20-11-10
<stipa> [TheBug]: yw, i had some trouble with usb nics, Autosuspend seems to sloved it
<f476_> o/
<IgorPec> torrent likn is correct
<IgorPec> there are no more recent release images
<IgorPec> they are comming up today / tomorrowe
<IgorPec> or ...
<IgorPec> wait
<f476_> want buy orange pi one plus for check lan speedtest for my work. this board will be able 500Mbps?
<IgorPec> this is not rpi :)
<IgorPec> ofc
<tonitch> x)
<IgorPec> real world measurements
<f476_> work service engeneer on internet provider, need small pcb with screen for speedtest 1gb line, use speedtest cli by ookla
<f476_> choose orange pi one plus :)
<IgorPec> any board with gigabit lan should do the job
<IgorPec> one plus is good choice,
<Werner> screen connect via hdmi then I assume?
<f476_> thanks for info
chewitt has joined #armbian
<[TheBug]> @here anyone who uses ipv6 to connect to sites by default, can you go to and let me know if it seems slow / latent -- tracking to see how far spread the IPv6 loss there on the server is
<f476_> on this board gpio pinout like rpi3? or different pinout
<Werner> [TheBug], noticed a few days ago already and can confirm
<IgorPec> for gpio pinout check manufacturers docs. don't reacall from head if its the same or not
<IgorPec> what do you need attaching there?
<[TheBug]> Werner: I noticed it here ongoing and escalated to NOC to review as it seems uplink provider is having some weird ipv6 issues, bouncing between 9ms and 205ms and showing 10-15% loss
<f476_> @IgorPec: display with knobs
<IgorPec> i2c?
<IgorPec> anyway, check board manual for header
<[TheBug]> Werner: geez -- in future if you see any forum post on connectivity for the site can you please bring to me ASAP and I will get it addressed -- a bit embarrassed we didn't figure out this was an oingoing isue before -- working with NOC to get it fixed.
<Werner> aight
<f476_> @IgorPec: i2c yes. ok, thx.

<IgorPec> images are changing at this moment
<IgorPec> and this one is corrupted
<IgorPec> someone else reported
<tonitch> so what should I do ?
<IgorPec> use any other
<IgorPec> focal version
<tonitch> sad times :'(
<IgorPec> diy
<IgorPec> or wait
<tonitch> I will
<IgorPec> here you can get todays build
<tonitch> take your time tho! don't want to be rude ^^
<IgorPec> but probably slow download
<tonitch> btw, why is the version doesn't change if you rebuild them ?
<IgorPec> it dows
<IgorPec> does
<IgorPec> scroll down, olders are also present since process is ongoing
<IgorPec> right now = right now :)
<tonitch> I see x)
<IgorPec> moving images to archive takes perhaps 30m
Redentor has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
<[TheBug]> Werner: can you test now and let me know if you still see same slowness?
<tonitch> wow
<tonitch> the download was waaaay faster than with torrent x)
<tonitch> and you told me it would be slow
<[TheBug]> hehe we have some nice mirros
<[TheBug]> hehe we have some nice mirrors
<IgorPec> this is the slowest one :)
<tonitch> I was waiting like a dumb for the download to start while it was already finished
<IgorPec> LOL
<[TheBug]> Werner: updated the forum thread as well, NOC pushed some new routes, should hopefully help to resolve that -- just let me know if you continue to see slowness and we can continue to review

<tonitch> when trying to burn the image, I know it's not related but maybe you know if my card is dead or not ?
<Xogium> well that smells bad
<IgorPec> certainly not bad armbian ;)
<Werner> doesnt look good. what tool do you use for writing?
<tonitch> dd
<Xogium> any kind of i/o error when trying to dd something is bad
<tonitch> and it give me this at the end
<tonitch> dd: error writing '/dev/sdd': No space left on device
<tonitch> on a 16gb card
<Xogium> well now
<Xogium> that's a bit more explicit
<Werner> you should not use dd for this. but for other reason
<tonitch> ho ?
<tonitch> I always used dd to burn my iso
<tonitch> ho.. that's an .img...
<tonitch> any diff ?
<Xogium> well dd itself isn't the bad thing, if you really know what you're doing
Redentor has quit [Quit: Leaving]
<Werner> writing image via dd lacks verification. if something goes wrong on writing you wont notice but get major pain in the butt from weird behaviour if your board
<Werner> *of
<tonitch> soo what should I do ?
<IgorPec> follow the manual :)
<Werner> help
<ArmbianHelper> Check out our awesome documentation! It's tremendous, promise!
<tonitch> yhea ofc :D thanks
<IgorPec> dd is fine for reliable media
<IgorPec> sd card is not
<Werner> we all learned that the hard way at some point :)
<tonitch> I think I already did but I keep doing that :p
<Werner> then keep in mind that boards running from sd cards that were not written properly do not receive support

<HerculeP> dd works well for me :D
<tonitch> I do really think that my sd card is dead
<tonitch> dd: writing to '/dev/sdd': Input/output error
<Werner> sd cards die often
<tonitch> for another try without bs (soo I think default is 512K)
<Werner> 1M is pretty common for writing images iirc
<tonitch> that's what I did for the first run
<stipa> i would first check if sdcard has healthy cells
<Werner> k
<stipa> like there are some tricks to write to it and read a block
<stipa> if block can't be read it's gone
<stipa> if it's ok then i would hit the disk image writing stuff
<stipa> at least then i would know that scdard should be fine and not worn out
<stipa> trying all image writers could take some time
<stipa> checking the card for pyhsicall erors could save you some trouble
<HerculeP> here is what I use: dd conv=sync,noerror status=progress bs=4M if=/path2/armbian.img of=/dev/sdX
<HerculeP> never had any issues /w sandisk etc
<HerculeP> dont forget to umount the partitions
<HerculeP> b4 dd

<tonitch> ok, whatever, etcher doesn't work either... I think it's dead
<Xogium> especially not after my try with sparse file :p
