Which image is best for R1 for now?

(chia-hung ma) #1

I used banaian 2016 for now but it show a lot of error log about hdmi display. It’s annoying for me. It also crashed when I tried to install x server.

As a result, I tried some other images but I don’t know how to setup a VLAN on them(ex. 2018-07-17-ubuntu-16.04-server-demo-bpi-r1-sd-emmc.img)

can someone teach me how to setup VLAN on image I mentioned above(2018-07-17-ubuntu-16.04-server-demo-bpi-r1-sd-emmc.img)

btw, when I install a HDD, the system can’t even boot success. Is it a problem of power supply?

I used the Armbian Jessie images and got the VLAN working, you can follow my document, it may help you but you must use a 4.x Kernel.

There are images without support, but with updates… https://www.armbian.com/download/?tx_maker=sinovoip&device_support=Support+ended+(EOS) However, if you like to dig in and send pull requests to can have a nice image from armbian. Just try it out if it suits you.
