  PCIe failure
Posted by: odhinnhrafn - 03-19-2019, 02:32 PM - Forum: Hardware and Accessories - Replies (1)

Just received my RockPro64, NAS case, and all the goodies.  I installed the Ubuntu Bionic LXDE image, loaded up great, added ATS, etc.  Everything is great except that the 2 WD Reds are not recognized.  Opening the case back up, I see that the PCIe doesn't have its LED lit up.  I'm trying to decide if this is the img or the hardware.  I have gotten the LED to illuminate a couple times by unplugging the SATA cables, but it doesn't stay on.  Also, during boot, the LED will blink on and off, then stay off.  lspci -v shows nothing, df -h / fdisk -l do not show the HDDs.

I do not have the board that requires removing a resistor.

  qemu-x86_64 on rockpro?
Posted by: pfremm - 03-18-2019, 10:14 PM - Forum: Linux - Replies (2)

Anyone have qemu working on a rockpro 64?  I've basked done an export of a ubuntu container and copied it to the rockpro.  When I attempt to execute even say bash I get an error:

#sudo qemu-x86_64-static -cpu kvm64 -L /opt/ubuntu/lib64 ./bash

/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2: No such file or directory

Any ideas?

  Best distro for a server?
Posted by: linuxha - 03-18-2019, 08:30 PM - Forum: Linux - Replies (2)

I have a RockPro64 with PCIe and a SATA drive. I'm having all sorts of issues with it crashing with problems related to the SATA or Filesytem under Linux. I initially want this system to be headless but I may need the hdmi for displaying security cameras.

Basically I'd love to have an image that I can use to boot from the SATA drive (but I do have the SD car,, just incase). So what's the best distro? I'd prefer not to use Ubuntu but if I must ...

Hi All,

I'm looking for info/advice on cooling a RockPro64.  The project that I want to use this computer for is computationally expensive and would be running continually for days or weeks.  What kind of heat sink, fan, case combination would be best to keep my new computer cool.  Any advice would be appreciated.

  Problems putting Ubuntu (Xenial Mate) on my replacement eMMC.
Posted by: frank-zappa - 03-18-2019, 05:50 PM - Forum: Linux - No Replies

Hello people.
I recently bought a 64Gb eMMC for my Pinebook.
When I tried to install the Xenial Mate I got a "No eMMC detected" message. (photo attached)
At first I thought it was a fault with the new eMMC and opened a ticket on the support page. They tested it and could find no faults. When it was returned the support people advised me to try and install Android. This worked.
I also had success installing Q4OS and the MicroSD version of Xenial Mate seems to work without issue. 
I have also tried  taking it off the board and putting it back on again.
As there are no issues with the eMMC I can only assume there is some issue with the Xenial Mate image I tried to install.
I would rather run a version of Ubuntu Xenial Mate installed on the eMMC.
Has anyone else had this issue?

Question Have eMMC adapter - but can't seem to fix eMMC card
Posted by: SirRyanTheGeek - 03-18-2019, 07:44 AM - Forum: Hardware and Accessories - Replies (1)

Hi - I had purchased two Rock64 boards, two 64GB eMMC chips and the USB adapter - got the image onto one of the cards using Balaena Etcher (been working great to get images on to microSD cards and the like). Went and re-formatted it after plugging it back into my Windows machine, went to reset an image - but now the eMMC card only appears as a 14.4 GB removable drive called "CARD" on drive E: and I can never seem to delete the partition, format the drive or anything else with it.

Things I've tried:

Volume manager and DISKPART on windows - all the way to deleting the partition - even forcing the delete
Plugged it into the Pi's USB port and using "sudo fdisk" and trying everything I could google to remove it to redo the drive to no avail.

The only thing that seems to show up now is a DOS partition that always has a "uupd.bin" file in it - and I can never reformat it. Is there something magical - or set of steps to get that rogue volume off the eMMC and back to where I can use it like the 64GB chip it is?

Is this chip lost for eternity or is there a way to really access it, blow it all away and redo it from scratch? Until I can figure something out I am afraid to take the other eMMC out of the bag.

Question Rock64 - Headless Setup?
Posted by: SirRyanTheGeek - 03-17-2019, 10:09 PM - Forum: Linux - Replies (6)

I'd like to be able to transfer an image of Bionic (or whichever - I've tried a few) to the Rock64 and have it boot, connect to my wireless LAN and allow me to ssh in headless. 

I purchased the Rock64 along with the recommended USB Wireless dongle from the shop - and can't seem to get any combination of putting in a "wpa_supplicant.conf" file and a blank file of "ssh" like I do with the Debian installs on the Pi. I still always have to connect monitor and keyboard to get it to come up and get connected.

Anyone have a link on "Rock64 Headless Setup" they could point me to? I've tried my Google and duck-fu to no avail.

Any tips would be deeply welcomed! Thanks!

  Rock 64 seem like a dead end
Posted by: munocat - 03-17-2019, 08:06 PM - Forum: General Discussion on ROCK64 - Replies (3)

I just purchased the Rock 64, got the board yestaday. 

I was hopping for it to be my main development Linux machine for my IoT devices. I have been using Raspberry pi's but the 1 GB ram has effecting my ability to watch YouTube, have multiple web pages open, python IDE and a few terminals.

I purchased a Rock64 with 4GB with the hope of a solution. I have tried Ambian, debain, ubuntu, archlinux and diet pi. all seem to be linux 4.4.174. It seems they all pull from the ayufan. All these distributions are great.

Here is the failure, the A/V audio does not work, and appears has never worked (over a year). works in andriod BTW. 

I think the Rock64 is E.O.L (end of line).

Old Linux kernel (I can live with this) and no a/v.

This board will join my other SBC and donate it cycles to setiathome.

Question, does any body know of a great 64bit Linux SBC with has great performance and OS support that meets my needs of Enough memory to run youtube (720p) and multiple tabs in the web browser?

  RockPro64 UPS for in car use

Hi, so I am looking for a UPS in car use. So I could shut down vehicle power and my RockPro64 would turn off itself without any corruption. Anyone has any suggestions which would work with rockpro? I have found so many, but not sure which one would be compatable.
