<parabyte> i dont know what i dont know and need some guidance!
<parabyte> basically Librelec s905x port works fine on my box on usb stick
<parabyte> i cant seem to get libreelec to boot via sdcard
<parabyte> my main goal is to get armbian working on this device
<parabyte> basically libreelec has a small fat filesystem on it with the kernel and other stuff
<parabyte> i have noticed armbian does not, and i cant get armbian to boot on my device via any means via sdcard and i have tried usb device
<parabyte> but i think the boot mechanism does not work with the way armbian is setup?
<parabyte> can someone please forward me to documentation on this soc?
<parabyte> concerning armbian
<parabyte> i have worked out uboot and such on the sunxi devices but with this s905* based devices im kinda clueless
<lanefu> Wipe spi flash or emmc on the amlogic device then you may have better lu m

<lanefu> TrapNAS?
<mangix> hostname
<mangix> it's irrelevant. some apt package messed this up
<lanefu> sorry i was thinking that was the build host name for the kernel
<lanefu> Can you run armbian-config then goto the system menu then share a screenshot?
<lanefu> Can paste here if you. Want. https://armbian.lane-fu.com/linx/
<lanefu> And no funny armbian apt sources?
<lanefu> But yeah i guess a kernel package didnt get signed. Can you get apt to show the package info for linux-image-current-mvebu
<mangix> how?
<mangix> there was no kernel update recently
<mangix> just a rootfs one
<lanefu> apt info ir apt query or something like that
<lanefu> s/ir/or
<ArmbianHelper> lanefu meant to say: apt info or apt query or something like that
<lanefu> K makes sense. We switched to a new format / naming convention for the rootfs stuff
<lanefu> See if you can get package info for that too
<mangix> there 21.05.4 are broken. .3 was fine
<lanefu> Thanks
<lanefu> Will try to look into it tomorrow

<nescius> hello! i just installed armbian on odroid xu4 and cannot see networking, /proc/net/dev shows the device, ip addr show (shows) only loopback
<nescius> documentation https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Basic-Troubleshooting/#network mentions /boot/armbianEnv.txt which doesn't exist..
<nescius> ok, i solved my problems (caused by issue with dhcp client happening with armbian but no other machine)
lanefu-er is now known as lanefu
<lanefu> IgorPec: so check out the issue mangix was talking about earlier. Is running a standard stable image but a rootfs-bsp-cli package update made the unsupported warning messsge show up in motd
<IgorPec> nescious: its hw issue related to crap usb connection. power cycle should solve
<IgorPec> lanefu: ok, will check

<IgorPec> lol
<stipa> parabyte: he's sleeping maybe
<stipa> i guess it's early morning at his place
<stipa> seems like he had allnighter
psydroid[m] is now known as psydroid
<lanefu> lol
<lanefu> no allnighter, just dog wakes me up at like 430 and then i go back to bed later
<lanefu> much later
<lanefu> parabyte: bugs right tho i've been married for like 8 years
<parabyte> hahahaahahahahah
<parabyte> im just about to head out unfortunately
<parabyte> just before i do!
<parabyte> lanefu, if i DD the armbian image to my devices emmc will that kinda work or will that cause me bad times?
<lanefu> parabyte: usually works fine on most
<parabyte> libreelec is detecting everything fine, that is how i will write it to my device, obviously after backing up my emmc as i need some conf files from android
<parabyte> the device has a lcd display in the front of it
<parabyte> a really crappy one but it has one
<parabyte> lanefu, haha i will let you know how all this turns out later, i have a feeling i will be learning how to restore a bricked s905x board ;)
<lanefu> cool.. well hope it goes smooth for ya
<buZz> oo i think i have some kinda s905x device around somewhere aswell
<parabyte> haha i will let you know how it turns out, much better box then my sunxi quad core board
<buZz> i'll be curious to hear the results
<parabyte> buZz, i will let you know, if i get no hdmi i will install uart onto it to see exactly what is going on
<parabyte> just a quick note before i go
<parabyte> has anyone here ever seen an android box play a movie file from bootloader to android user interface?
<buZz> from bootloader? no , but many androids have 'bootsplash' stuff
<buZz> its not a movie, just a pile of seperate pngs afaik
<parabyte> my box has like this disney looking digitally animated cartoon with disney music and some chinese kid blowing avatar style floating things into the sky!
<parabyte> its playing audio buZz
<buZz> waw
<parabyte> i will share the firmware so you can poke around
<buZz> :) well they could run anything they want from init
<buZz> no thanks :)
<parabyte> its really really weird
<buZz> i have zero desire to mess with any android ;)
<parabyte> im not interested in android either but the movie at boot, "i never seen that ever"
<lanefu> parabyte: retrorangepi plays a video at startup
<parabyte> oh i was not aware, thanks for letting me know
<buZz> what i see, is you can play mp3s during bootsplash on android kernels
<lanefu> btw there's a rate limit of 5 android mentions per 10 minutes in this channel
<buZz> good
<buZz> :)
<buZz> android android android
<buZz> now we're done
<buZz> hehe
<parabyte> i will return later, thanks for the chat lanefu and buZz i will report my findings later!
<parabyte> hopefully with one of these :)
<buZz> ciao \o
<lanefu> cya

<IgorPec> lanefu: fixe
<[TheBug]> lol he is AWOL
<IgorPec> how is that possible ? :)
<[TheBug]> hehe
<[TheBug]> maybe he is hiding on Discord
<nekomancer[m]> whatis AWOL?
<IgorPec> away without permission ;)
<IgorPec> desertion in military terminology
<nekomancer[m]> 🤐
<nekomancer[m]> https://source.denx.de/u-boot/u-boot.git/ has expired cert.
<nekomancer[m]> Inexcusable!
<[TheBug]> absent without official leave but without intent to desert.
<[TheBug]> "we not only dealt with the enemy but with servicemen who had gone AWOL"
<[TheBug]> "if, having been treated in this way, students go AWOL, no one should be surprised"
<[TheBug]> absent from where one should be; missing.
<stipa> that's not nice at all
<stipa> of him
<[TheBug]> lol I was j/k
<[TheBug]> but he probably doing his day job
<[TheBug]> ;p
<stipa> oh

<nekomancer[m]> what means violet "b" there?
<nekomancer[m]> and dark blue "t" there?
<IgorPec> board specific patch
<nekomancer[m]> o, it's not "something wrong" signs! :)
<IgorPec> nope, its a feature. Not a bug ;)
<nekomancer[m]> and "t"?
<IgorPec> this i don't know from head anymore
<IgorPec> check lib/compilation.sh

<nekomancer[m]> just patches from `target` dir
<nekomancer[m]> hm. branch and board both letter "b", only color differs. It's wrong.
<nekomancer[m]> maybe, change branch letter to "r"
<nekomancer[m]> ?
<IgorPec> ah, already too complicated :)
* nekomancer[m] think color means only success status. not type mark. but now I see both letter and color means type.
<IgorPec> this is used rarely
<nekomancer[m]> ok, then. now I know :)

<parabyte> buZz, I have been unable to test this tonight as an faulty android phone has ruined my 2 spare sdcards
<buZz> alas
<parabyte> buZz, i can read the data off the sdcards but i cannot write to it
<parabyte> even if i do dd if=/dev/random or zero
<buZz> how are you attempting to write to them?
<parabyte> i have tried dd
<parabyte> with usb sdcard adaptors
<buZz> through a USB cardreader?
<parabyte> yeah
<parabyte> never had a issue before
<buZz> tried to plug/unplug that adapter?
<parabyte> iv tried 3 different adaptors and tried formatting the cards from a known good phone
<buZz> aw
<parabyte> what on earth has happened to these sdcards!
<parabyte> is there any deborking utilities for linux for sdcards?
<parabyte> im guessing hdparm?
<parabyte> or are they dead?
<parabyte> i just cannot write to them!
<parabyte> kernel is reporting them as being a writable etc
<buZz> maybe you toggled the writeprotect pin on the micro->bigger SD adapter?
<parabyte> oh does that trigger something on the sdcard?
<buZz> my usb reader has a SD slot and a microSD slot
<parabyte> as in if i take it out the big adaptor does those changes stick?
<buZz> the SD slot reads writeprotect from that pin
<parabyte> oh i got ya
<buZz> no they shouldnt stick
<parabyte> no im not using an adaptor
<buZz> ok
<buZz> welp, just a hunch
<parabyte> sigh i hate it when 32gig sdcards die
<buZz> at least SD cards are cheap nowadays
<parabyte> ill pick some up tomorrow when i go into town
<buZz> i remember spending >300 euro for a 32MB smartmedia card
<parabyte> i want to try booting armbian via sdcard before i write it to emmc
<parabyte> lol this is why i couldnt boot armbian cause i did not assume my sdcards were well dead
<parabyte> i never checked!
<parabyte> holy hell my man 300 lol
<buZz> :)
<parabyte> expensive jpegs!
<buZz> it was for a Diamond Rio PMP300
<parabyte> wow really expensive mp3's
<buZz> bought on launch :)
<parabyte> at that time i was one of the young guys with a modified pc under the passenger seat in the car running damp mp3 player for dos
<parabyte> thought i was so amazing!
<buZz> haha yeah, i was doing similar at the time with a Via Epia i think?
<buZz> might be 1-2 years later
<parabyte> i was using some sort of amd 486 running at 133 i think it was
<parabyte> 8megs of ram
<parabyte> lol
<parabyte> but had a 80gig ide drive in it
<parabyte> drive cost more then the car!
<buZz> > In March 2001, CeBIT 2001 saw the release of VIA's "ITX" motherboard reference design.
<buZz> ah, so ~2.5 years later
<parabyte> i remember those epia's they were groundbreaking for the time
<parabyte> in reality really shit boards, didnt really have the longevity of say one of those pc 104 boards
<buZz> oh i've had one running for ages
<buZz> it lived a lot longer than the car i bought it for anyway :P
<parabyte> i saw 7 of those epia's in service in a dust free enclosure well ventilated i believe ic's started to fail was getting random lockups
<parabyte> checked caps on a tear down of one of the boards and they checked out fine
<parabyte> just for the record they had a uptime of 8-14 years
<parabyte> before there was failures
