BPI-R2 new image : Armbian with kernel 4.19.y 2018-11-5,support by armbian

Hello,

I couldn’t find a solution so had to go with SD (boot) + HDD (rootfs) solution. Booting from SD card working perfectly. BTW I found this article maybe its something related: https://e2e.ti.com/support/legacy_forums/embedded/linux/f/354/p/564201/2067135

Additional note: I have power button soldered so after reboot it starts immediately, can it be a reason? Anybody else having this issue? Is it reproducing only for me?

I have UART debug cable, let me know if you want me to provide more information.

Thank you,

Good afternoon,

All lan interfaces are ok, but wan not possible to be up.

Thank you for your help

Well, I am home. I was unable to get bionic to load. get a cpu failure and it freezes. But Stretch installed and is running. After installing the firmware, my mpcie card does detect and is working. A few caveats currently though. I can’t seem to get more than 6Mbps. Tried several things, reinstalled as well. Also I am getting an error with apt-show-versions. and this being a dependent for several packages its cause some issues. Any thoughts?

Thank you.

Good evening everyone, I’m testing this image and the only problem that brings me up to now is mounting a HDD, I state that the socket works properly, as if I insert a 32 GB USB detects it, while any hard disk does not is recognized, I state that the hard disk case and the hard disk itself work on any other OS.

If you need any help on log or other, ask.

Check that your SATA ports are firmly soldered. Mine were not. I will have to solder them again.

My USB 3.0 ports are properly soldered and working, on both if I insert a 32 GB usb stick, this is read

He’s writing about sata ports…not usb

I was talking about usb, I can not use SATA ports at the moment

Will be investigated asap.

Any one else experiencing issues with apt-show-versions? I can’t get several things to install on either Armbian build due to this package. tried numerous things to get it running but no luck. Thank you.

Hi igor, do we have an update on this ? is someone else facing this issue ?

Yes. If your question/problem includes spending my time and since it does, start here: https://forum.armbian.com/subscriptions

My post was only a question, i don’t wanted to push, since i now that this work is never gonna paid really for you’re investigated time and mostly voluntary. My apologies if i bothered you…

by the way: anyone knows who maintain armbian build for Banana Pi R2?

I would like to compile newer kernel for (for intel wlan) and need someone to point me how to do the armbian way
