It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
and I'm just curious, what are you all using this board for? Media Player, Desktop, File Server... Paper weight?
Not saying it's bad or anything, just interested in what projects if any you've fit this into?
Hmmm. Android I haven't tried that yet. I wasn't to impressed with the provided Libre images though. I did make my self an Armbian .IMG running the 4.19.11 Linux kernel. Which is pretty smooth I must say... Pretty impressed.
Thinking about getting together the Bootlin efforts and seeing how much better I can get the Video playback going. 720P seems to be going pretty smooth by default.
Anyway, Happy Holidays and lets see what this board can do!
The latest ALL-H5-CC images that I tried:
They don't seem to expand the partition that the filesystem is installed on correctly. Is there a command I can run or is this a bug? I tried growing the partiton with gparted my self, but it gave me errors.
Nevermind. I fixed it using Ubuntu. (with gparted)
For whatever reason I couldn't get it to work in my Debian install? It hates btrfs for some reason.
We will double check this over the next few days. Thanks for reporting!
We just tested the images and they resized OK. Did you reboot the first boot while it was resizing?
I didn't even realize it was happening until I started setting up things and started getting errors because of a lack of space. After writing the image for a 3rd time, I then pulled the SDCARD and rewrote it again, let it boot and then shutdown the board, pulled the card and checked it under gparted on my PC.
That's when I noticed the problem.
After realizing Debian wasn't properly seeing the file system "wouldn't even let me mount it" I then booted into Ubuntu, checked the card and grew it from there. I did try a fresh install on the card from Ubuntu, using etcher and gnome-disk-utility, but the result was the same.
Maybe this is an isolated issue? In any case, it's easily remedied using gparted.
Card(s) I used - SanDisk Extreme PRO
@Cornelius We will do some more testing and get back to you.
Just pulled from ur site - libre-computer-all-h3-cc-h5-debian-stretch-headless-mali-4.19.19-02255-gaac668141211-dirty-2019-02-05.zip
Extracted and then used Etcher to image the SDCARD.
Got the web up using an old Moto X Pure phone I have laying around and tethered via USB (Good old LineageOS) and some quick changes to /etc/network/interfaces.
Followed by sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y && sudo apt install xinit xserver-xorg xterm openbox gparted -y
Ran startx and the screenshot shows what else.
Same results. Not sure what I'm doing wrong here? But I'm willing to bet, if I grew the partition all would be fine.
I don't have Windows to check if writing the .IMG with that OS would give me different results, but it's been pretty consistent with in Linux.
We have to upload new images. It will take approximately 24 hours.
