I just wanted to test 4.18.x kernel on this image.

I know what it was. If you go to armbian-config straight after you start with a blank image, old indexes are present (they are auto-updated but it takes few minutes) and there DEV is still 4.14.y ... and switching from NEXT -> DEV doesn't change anything except probably different kernel subversion. If you would execute apt update and upgrade manually, you should get to the 4.18.y ... :)

A solution is to execute "apt update" always before checking for alternative kernels ... I am still not sure if that is needed but can be easily added.

But I could not find sound working on this kernel update.
Another issue is that on poweroff/reboot I could not boot into new kernel.
It would not be called DEVelopement if everything would work :)

Hanging sometimes on reboot is a known (to me) problem, while the rest is yet to be discovered and fixed. 4.18.y is there for testing purposes and ... development.

I am happy that kernel switching works (almost) as expected. "One bite at the time" :D

Thanks which kernel repository you uses to build this kernel, I will test the kernel on HK image and find the root cause of the issue.

Hi.
I was using armbian stretch 5.58 on the HC2. Now my system is not booting anymore (at least not reachable via Network anymore). I did not change anything comparing the last reboot. My system is set up ideally for me and I put a lot of work into it. Is there a way to boot into it again? Is ther some way to boot an old kernel?
Thanks for your support.

This should not happen. Try power cycle ... there is always possible to go back, but we need to know first if there is a problem with a kernel or something else.

I will try to recreate to see if something strange is going on.

I repeat upgrade test on Odroid HC1:

5.45 -> 5.60
http://ix.io/1n5F

latest OMV + apt update & upgrade
http://ix.io/1n5J

No problems.

Well. I guess it was some corruption on the SD card. I dont get it. It is a new Sandisk Extreme (https://www.amazon.de/SanDisk-Extreme-m ... gb+extreme). I am using the official power supply. I always properly reboot or poweroff via console. Never simply pulled the plug.
New install, working normally (up to now) with 5.60. Good that I am switching most of my software to docker. With my compose scripts it should not be too much a hassle to get everythign setup again. Still annoying. Thanks for your work!

SD cards can cause strange problems. Card brand doesn't help. You need to change to some other. There are also fakes ... and we can't do much about except talking about this. Odroid XU4 and C2 used to have troubles with some modern SD cards.

Unfortunately, on this hardware, you don't have many alternatives, well, perhaps just using SD card for boot, while everything else stays on SATA/USB drive.

Yeah. I unfortunately cant do that on my main HC2 right now, as the HDD is already completely setup and I dont want to risk having to restore everything (many TB). But I am setting up a second HC2 for my parents with a fresh HDD. So I guess I will try setting it up with the system on HDD. Then I'll just store a small image for boot, from which I can recover within minutes.

Hello,

I'm running 4.19.5-odroidxu4 #5.67 SMP PREEMPT Fri Nov 30 03:15:28 UTC 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux on a Odroid HC-1. /proc/cpuinfo and htop show only 8 .LITTLE cores - but it did show the correct number of 4 .BIG and 4 .LITTLE before. Do you know what changed these behaviour or what settings I have to do to make the CPU be handled correctly?

Hint: armbianmonitor seems to have the correct CPU information, crosspost: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/9277-pr ... preciated/

Thank you for your advice,
Letterus

Hello,

I'm running 4.19.5-odroidxu4 #5.67 SMP PREEMPT Fri Nov 30 03:15:28 UTC 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux on a Odroid HC-1. /proc/cpuinfo and htop show only 8 .LITTLE cores - but it did show the correct number of 4 .BIG and 4 .LITTLE before. Do you know what changed these behaviour or what settings I have to do to make the CPU be handled correctly?

Hint: armbianmonitor seems to have the correct CPU information, crosspost: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/9277-pr ... preciated/

Thank you for your advice,
Letterus
Needs to be investigated. In case you don't want to bother with this, go to armbian-config and switch to stock 4.14. kernel

Thanks for your reply. Just for your information: I installed the latest dev kernel from Saturday (4.19.14-odroidxu4 #5.70 SMP PREEMPT Sat Jan 12 18:34:04 CET 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux) where this issue still occurs.

Switching back to stock 4.14 kernel it unfortunetly broke my device. Something of my setup must be incompatible with this kernel. I'll see if I can restore the newer one somehow. ;-) Probably I'll have to restore /boot and rewrite the boot loader?

The "breaking" of the device usually has 99.9999% to do with the dtb. Or the boot script.
Always use the dtb that belongs to that kernel. Yes, dtb's were meant to be part of the "BIOS", but I think we can agree on that will never be the case.
The second probleem is that your bootscript references different files or non-existent.
Ubuntu and debian are in very large part kernel agnostic. They don't care about it being 3.10 o 5.0...
So as long as you can boot your kernel and have the modules in the correct place, you should be able to run whatever distro you want.
So on up/downgrade, check if the right dtb and kernel image and sometimes initramfs are put in the right place for uboot to read.

Thank you. I managed to "fix" my device setting up the boot script again. Probably armbian-config wrote it in a way that did not describe that my root is on SSD and not SD card.

This issue probably is a bug of htop. More information over there: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/9277-pr ... preciated/

Update: htop was just set up wrong. (I don't know how this happened though.)

Hi, me again...

Quick question... how can I tell why mono is crashing with either Sonarr and/or Radarr? I keep getting left over blob files that says it's crashed; mem files.
Does this mean I'm out of memory?

I have updated Radarr/Sonarr to the latest and also updated mono; to no avail.

I'm testing just Radarr atm because I don't know which one is crashing.

I'm using the latest Bionic from your site for the XU4 with a 16GB eMMC.

Help?

We didn't make Radarr nor Sonarr. We only provide easy way to install those application. They must have some support forums ... we can't help on random problems you have with your computer.

Trying to use
Armbian_5.83_Odroidxu4_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.111.7z
Hardware is Odroid HC1
Upon first boot, there's plenty of ethernet activity so the system is certainly doing something
The 1234 password does not work for the root account.
I verified the download image and used Etcher to write to microsd
It's a brand new SanDisk Ultra 32GB

Any ideas?

I pulled the network cable because the NIC has been going nuts for 2 hours. What would Armbian be downloading for 2 hours on a new system? I'm on a fast corporate connection so 2 hours is many GB worth of data.

Where you will certainly face the same problem. Please report.

P.S.
There is no Ubuntu for this board. Only unofficial builds.

SD card works fine with Ubuntu. The HC1 is chugging along nicely now.

Aha, another victim of mixed identity. You were using OMV suite, which is based on Armbian. In that case a lot of junk is downloaded ... but you have to ask at https://forum.openmediavault.org/index.php/BoardList/ what and why.

Armbian is plan and clean OS and much better than stock "Ubuntu".

Bottom line. Images from official download location, https://www.armbian.com/odroid-hc1/ doesn't produce anything like you described. I made a quick test even I was 100% sure, everything is O.K.!

Easy way to install it yet but as my post above, there's problems with your install for Radarr/Sonarr/Mono because mono is outdated and Sonarr/Radarr need a recent version of Mono.
Anyway, check the issues section; I figured the problem out with my XU4 and mono crashing. it's easy to fix and don't need help from stuck up people like you. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
