<lanefu> Whats scrc0y
<lanefu> Tony you mean rockpi4b plus
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> Well I'm trying to debug getting the mini-DP to work
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> scrcpy
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> we added to the package list
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> it allows to mmirror plus control an android device
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> https://github.com/Genymobile/scrcpy
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> use it with -m 1280 to improve framerate
<Armbian-Discord> <l​anefu> wild
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> its very helpful for desktop.
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> also you can foward the audio with android 10.
<Armbian-Discord> <N​eonFetch> scrcpy is cli based, so i suggested an icon and a lajncher shortcut fot amrbian

<sunshavi> lanefu: is btrfs rock solid for You?
<lanefu> sunshavi: yah dude
<lanefu> been using it on all my armbian builds for probably 3 years at this point
<sunshavi> mm. I just installed archlinux x86-64 on an btrfs partition [pendrive]. And after a couple of weeks It is just mounting read only
<sunshavi> I have been searching-on-the-web and It seems I should go to the btrfs channel for help. I am going to do that
<lanefu> id blame the pendrive :P
<sunshavi> lol. Could that be? who knows?
<sunshavi> anyway. Let me go the btrfs channel and try to recover it
<lanefu> blockopy it to another device
<sunshavi> lanefu: let me see what people on btrfs channel say about it. After it perhaps I could go back to your suggestion :)
<lanefu> :P good luck
<sunshavi> lanefu: It was just the adapter
<lanefu> ha so it worwks now?
<sunshavi> this is an emmc inside an [emmc to uSD adapter] within a {usD to USB adapter}
<lanefu> ahhh
<sunshavi> lanefu: Yes. I change to another {uSD to USB} adapter. And it is working again
<sunshavi> But probably this uSD to USB adapter does not have the right quality

<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> Updated my helios64, let's see if ZFS comes back or if I have to get dirty again 😄
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> I still get kernel crashes on and off
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> whew

<diederik> I'm seeing some msgs about rockpro64, patches, high speed USB and dumping of the USB stack, but I'm missing the context here. Can someone fill me in?
<diederik> I'm currently having issue with a rock64 and USB drives which cause the system to freeze up entirely.
<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> rock64 or rockpro64?
<diederik> rock64
<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> that is something different
<diederik> I know it's a different device and not supported by armbian, but there appears soo many similarities that I'd like to further look into this
<buZz> diederik: maybe you can try asking in #linux-rockchip
<buZz> ?
<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> well, good luck 😉
<diederik> I'll probably (also) ask in #rock64 (on Pine64 IRC). But a similar case on a different, but also a rockchip, device, may lead to new insights
<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> remember that you will find people that claim it runs stable
<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> especially on pine channels
<Armbian-Discord> <I​gorPec> there are at least three board revisions out there which are difficult to cover
<diederik> I'm not asking for a fix, just more context/background on what was discussed here ~18 hours ago
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> I was being asked about this, I haven't tested yet
<diederik> On #rock64 I've been talking with 'pgwipeout' (primarily) who pointed me to a commit in 5.13 and linux-next (DT updates wrt USB3) and the state/limitations of the patch/driver he wrote (which iiuc both armbian and LibreELEC use)
<diederik> what I'm trying to find/figure out is *what* you're 'about' to test
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> Great question.
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> I'm going to try to saturate the port and see what happens
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> The previous mentions have been about the USB dying after some time with a USB3 to 2.5 GbE Ethernet adapter
<diederik> The tests I've done so far involve 2 USB drives (1 can reach ~140MB/s connected to my main PC, the other ~400MB/s) connected to a powered USB3 hub attached to the rock64 (on boot up).
<diederik> When I try to copy a dir with large video files either from one drive to the other or via the network to my PC, I only reach max 40MB/s before the device freezes up completely or I get some network error
<Armbian-Discord> <l​anefu> not sure what deal is..[thebug] uses Rockpi4c's for NAS and loves them

<peterm6881> hi good citizens of Armbianland
<[TheBug]> Good Day
<peterm6881> has anyone done any work porting Barebox into Armbian?
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> no-one I know of ... never heard of it
<peterm6881> really? wow
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> and the issue is each boayd has its own bl
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> uboot writen for each chipset
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> but your welcome to
<peterm6881> well, I have it on good authority barebox is better, but however, we are where we are
<peterm6881> ;)
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> it would have to be patched also to support ext4 and btrfs and f2fs

<peterm6881> Armbian-Discord, thanks for your input
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> and it would have to support alot o devicetrees
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> as each board has its own device tree
<peterm6881> im working on that
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> ok
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> well I am doing desktop work at the min but about got 99% done
<peterm6881> im looking for people keen to find alternatives to allwinner
<peterm6881> tbh, I'm on a bit of a learning curve
<peterm6881> :)
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> we have rk3399
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> we have s90X chips
<peterm6881> rockchip, nice
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> yes
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> mutli chips not just the 3399
<peterm6881> barebox is a bootloader designed for embedded systems. It runs on a variety of architectures including x86, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC and others.
<peterm6881> id be amazed if nobody in this channel has heard of it, stunned in fact
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> wll its due to we use the default uboot bl by defaault
<peterm6881> guess we will have to blaze a trail through bigger brush than I thought!
<peterm6881> ;)
<buZz> barebox is a busybox fork?
<buZz> oh its a bootloader, never heard of
<peterm6881> barebox aims to be a versatile and flexible bootloader, not only for booting embedded Linux systems, but also for initial hardware bringup and development. barebox is highly configurable to be suitable as a full-featured development binary as well as for lean production systems. Just like busybox is the Swiss Army Knife for embedded Linux, barebox is the Swiss Army Knife for bare metal, hence the name
<buZz> yeah i saw the site
<buZz> no need to copypaste it :P
<peterm6881> from the landing page
<buZz> that blurb doesnt help me not having heard of it ;)
<peterm6881> its for anyone reading this too lazy to click on the url
<buZz> :)
<peterm6881> ;)
<peterm6881> I welcome comments from anyone present who has heard of it :)
<peterm6881> buZz, which is not to say I do not welcome your comments also, just slightly less so
<buZz> lol ok?
<peterm6881> ;)
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> I have booted custom firmware using U-boot as well, it actually provides documentation explaining how to go about it. I used that with the Mini2440 and more recently an H3 just for experimental purposes
The-going has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
<peterm6881> I believe ST Microelectronics MPU's have U-boot support, so we wont try to reinvent the wheel with the Odyssey STM32MP157C
<peterm6881> U-boot it is
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> Tonymac32 boots with uboot ... half the time it hangs and he is in limbo the other half the time he just takes time to boot
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> lol
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> I'm not saying a better answer than u-boot doesn't exist, u-boot codebase is a headache wrapped in a heavy metal band playing in an industrial warehouse full of large stamping equipment
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> 🙂
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> So I killed a USB port and the window manager on my Renegade Elite, I'm assuming I have some ports pointing at the wrong things
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> device tree sorcery
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> the claim in the documentation is that both USB-type C's support display port alt mode (I assume not at the same time :D)
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> this is reminding me of something though
<Armbian-Discord> Command sent by Tonymac32
<Armbian-Discord> ...
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> this driver shouldn't be from staging
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> compatible = "fairchild,fusb302";
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> that's wrong, but I had to do that to make it run at all long ago. Let's take that out and see with the right compatible
peterm6881 has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> lol back to the old tricks of not booting from a PD adapter
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> ok
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> dumb supply at all the amps engage
<[TheBug]> irc engage!
<lanefu> I like irc
<lanefu> Whyd peterm6881 person leave
<IgorPec> irc
<IgorPec> 4ever :)
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> Ah ok, sink-PDO's are showing 500 mA 😆😆. The other driver must have been too dumb to pay attention to that
<Armbian-Discord> <T​onymac32> Maybe, will test with 3000 mA
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> but Tony you only need 100ma to be powered
<Armbian-Discord> <r​neese> lol
