  Received my NAS case
Posted by: Tim Jones - 06-20-2019, 11:16 AM - Forum: Hardware and Accessories - No Replies

Hi Folks,

I've received my NAS case, SATA PCIe HBA and other bits.

On first look, the case is well designed and laid out for this purpose (NAS).  The drive carrier frame needs to be a bit stiffer (rolled edges would help here) because it depends on the drives for stiffness and proper shaping.  The two orientation nubs have to be "helped" to get the drive carrier frame mounted and that's a bit of a pain with 3.5" drives installed.

A simple one page sheet with recommended drive orientation would be helpful also.  If you put the drives in with the SATA connector end towards the RockPRO64 end of the case, the cables bind against the SATA HBA.

Once that is sorted, things fit very well and the case is very sturdy.

The outstanding issues in my mind for now are -

- The light pipe is pretty useless unless the unit is in a dark room
- The unit should include a proper case fan as part of the base package
- The drive carrier frame needs its edges rolled to both add needed stiffness and save our fingers

Other than those three items, this is a perfect solution for use as a media server in a home environment or a small workgroup file server.  I've currently configured it with two 12TB Seagate He drives striped using mdadm for speed and capacity.

Performance tests will follow.

  RockPro64 boot problem
Posted by: MaxPesenti - 06-20-2019, 09:53 AM - Forum: General Discussion on ROCKPRO64 - Replies (2)


I'm using a Rockpro64 board with ArmBian distribution.
The board is connected via HDMI to a display and via USB to the touch screen controller.
When the USB of the touch screen controller is connected the RockPro64 does not boot: it stuck in the boot room, on the console the only message I get is:
DDR Version 1.22 20190506 

then it stuck waiting for something.
If instead I remove the usb connection vs the touch controller, the RockPro64 boot normally.

Any ideas about the root cause of this problem? ANy solution?
Thanks in advance

  Wi-fi stops working - Armbian
Posted by: cel - 06-18-2019, 11:09 PM - Forum: Linux - No Replies

Greetings all,
I am a new user of a Pinebook 11.6" 1080P. I am experiencing an issue where the wifi interface stops working after some amount time - about one hour. After that, it shows no networks available and persists in that state until the system is rebooted. I am running wpa_supplicant from systemd with the default options; Network Manager is disabled. Currently I am running Armbian_5.86_Pinebook-a64_Ubuntu_bionic_next_4.19.38_desktop -  but I think I also experienced this issue with Armbian_5.86_Pinebook-a64_Debian_stretch_next_4.19.38 and maybe even with the stock KDE system. Has anyone dealt with an issue like this? Is there a kernel module I could try reloading or some way to reset the network interface so I don't have to reboot the computer to get back online?

I am trying to connect either to the wifi router outside my vintage metal skinned camper or a Windows 10 desktop with a ethernet connection for internet and a wifi usb adapter on it running the mobile hotspot.   I am having authentication failure with this encryption. Anyone else have this or a solution?  I tried adding to the wpa_supplicant as found on a guide i googled and nothing. any help? the wifi usb is good, it just is not authenticating in this encryption....

  Armbian 5.1.y and storage/network potential issues
Posted by: sysop - 06-17-2019, 08:15 PM - Forum: Hardware and Accessories - Replies (4)


I'm looking at purchasing a Pine H64 and using Armbian for a project that mostly requires network (around 128kb/s up and 128kb/s down) and storage (90% append-only write).  However, I'm concerned about the following at https://www.armbian.com/pine-h64/ :

--- CUT ---
- USB3 sometimes doesn’t detect high-speed devices properly
- random MAC
- limited 3rd party hardware support
--- CUT ---

For the network, I'd like to use the integrated wifi, but need a fixed MAC (for port-forwarding).

For storage, I'm looking at using a Toshiba HDTB410XK3AA Canvio Basics 1TB connected directly via USB3.  Does anyone know if this might be an issue (e.g. power and/or compatibility-wise)?

I still haven't decided about SD/eMMC for boot/root (but would like to use u-boot).

Does anyone know if the issues mentioned above have been resolved?
