Armbian + KODI (Ubuntu\Debian) for SD & USB & eMMC

#355

No changes to VIM2 sample. I described running Official Khadas’s Ubuntu in eMMC from image: https://dl.khadas.com/Firmware/VIM2/Ubuntu/EMMC/VIM2_Ubuntu-xfce-bionic_Linux-4.9_arm64_EMMC_V20190319.7z Whatever u-boot comes on/with that image.

Do you know if Wi-Fi on VIM2 Pro/Max rev 1.4 works with mainline kernel?
Thanks!

I don’t have such a model, so I can only assume. Probably doesn’t work yet, because it uses 6398 , it’s close to 6359. I could be wrong, though. This can update the @Gouwa or @numbqq

Maybe not work, the driver from mainline doesn’t support AP6359SA and AP6398S.

I have asked AMPAK about this issue, they don’t have such firmware, and they point me that it maybe not an issue with firmware, maybe we need more patches to bringup AP6359SA.

Another way is to port bcmdhd driver to mainline…

Hello Oleg,

I have another question to you about the armbian images, how can I use the bluetooth?

Thanks.

Hi Nick
If we are talking about VIM2 , in some versions of images you need to add firmware. This can be done manually or through the standard Armbian mechanism (run the “armbian-config” utility as root and select the full firmware installation menu).

I can’t set the ip_conntrack_max value via sysctl.conf.
It’s just say ‘sysctl: cannot stat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max: No such file or directory’
Please help.
I’m using the armbian running openwrt in docker,
The connection limits is too low,
only 4096…

ANYWAY Thanks!
I’m using your image for a while,

@balbes150, your work is awesome. Is this possible to activate GPIO to use with RPi compatible hardware? I am trying to make Razberry GPIO card work

@balbes150 do your latest images have at least Kernel 5.0.8 and do they have full WiFi and BlueTooth Support for Khadas VIM 2 MAX ?
I’ve had issues with WiFi and Bluetooth in the past and I’m concerned about the latest

Hello…as per my knowledge a part of the image includes several predefined files in the /boot directory. To use it you need to rename one of the files in “remote.conf”. Additionally uploaded the site to the directory the deb package “amremote.deb” , which can be installed in the old system.

The latest versions use the 5.1 kernel. There is no WiFi support for VIM2 Max\Pro yet.
