    Hello all and particular balbes150, ty for all your excellent work.

    I actually run
    Code:
    Armbian_5.37_S805_Debian_stretch_3.10.99_xfce_20180112.img
    on my 805 and works like a sharm with the dtb.img from librelec , ethernet is working out of the box, hdmi too with appropriate resolution

    Even /root/install.sh is working fine , it boots from internal nand

    I use this box not for media player, but as as ASTERISK voip pbx and internal XMPP chat server and it runs smoothly

    The only thing I didn't manage to work on armbian is this infamous s9083 wifi chip . Is not fundamental, but you know tech people, is now a deal to make it work

    any point to solve the question ? Can I take the s9083.ko from somewhere and copy paste in armbian ?

    Thank you in advance

      I doubt that the module will operate from a different core.

        first of all thank you for replaying, I follow this posts since long time and you always answer to people questions and are very kind. This is great from you !!!

        I will try to compile the firmware/driver but is not really needed, just a personal satisfaction.

        I will go now one moment OFF TOPIC:

        I have several ( hundreds) of RK3229 that I bought in stock. Mostly are 2 giga ram 16 giga rom and mostly were just flashed with wrong firmware.

        Did you ever studied those ? Heve you ever managed to compile/put linix on ? I saw exists toipic for other RK but those 3229 seems not very interesting
        I ALWAYS have uart and oscilloscope bounded to boards to follow what happening, if needed.

        Any topic about ?

        Cheers

          I do not have such equipment, I have not tried how it works.

            Ok seems that the producer of 9083 never released the src neither a precompiled object so definitely this module will NOT work

            ​​​​​My last question to Mr. balbes150 :

            For my pbx application need compile "dadhi" and I will do directly on the board ( NO crosscompiling).
            Of course I need the sources or/and the headers but no-one avaible to apt-get.
            If I download the 3.10.99 kernel, put in /usr/src of the board ( rename to Linux or leave with 3.10.99 suffix?? ) will it be used for compilation ?
            Will it work?or do I need more tuning for compiling ?

              On the site in the directory "deb" there is a package with kernel headers from the used image. You can download and install them with the command "dpkg".

                dear balbes ty so much for pointing me at it.
                In this huge information, links and posts I didn't even realized that was already done headers.

                Really ty, YOU are exactly the right person for a forum, always kind and ready to answer.
                Really appreciated
