So, are there any fixes yet?

So… C’mon, it’s pretty cool now that it’s all set up, right? :stuck_out_tongue:

Still a couple of frustrations there (lack of a useful sleep mode being most of them), but yes.

I am curious, since the A04 and A06 are the same architecture, just different clock speeds, is there a reason that it wouldn’t work on both?

have you changed your fan curve a bit? I have run my A04 with all cores enabled for a few days at a time without it overheating.

Hey CXM, can you expand on what this is exactly? I saw you replied to the original build instructions request here: Building Armbian image for A06 fails, wiki instructions incomplete · Issue #26 · clockworkpi/DevTerm · GitHub

Are you saying you completely submitted Devterm-a06 support to the main Armbian project (Add clockworkpi-a06 support (#3768) · armbian/build@1f54bc3 · GitHub) and also re-worked the build scripts (GitHub - libreclockwork/armbian-clockworkpi-a06: armbian-clockworkpi-a06) to build the newest armbian and kernel for devterm???!!??

Because if so, this is next-level awesome.

yes, but printer still wip
the next version of armbian release will be publish at the end of May

I just built it without any issues…

You need to advertise this more. Start a new thread, wiki page, or something.

Cool! Any chance a downloadable image could be posted for this?

Is the printer the only thing not working yet? (Can the CPU settings be changed, does the fan work properly, etc.)

You really shouldn’t install images from strangers. That said, google drive is saying 8 hours to upload, so instead you get a super quick tutorial on how to build it on most ubuntu’s or devterm itself.

(Don’t want to step on CXM’s toes here, they might be planning to release images via some other method.)

CXM, thank you again for this work.

I am unfamiliar with the Armbian release process. At the end of May will devterm-a06 be supported in the release? Meaning, I can select it from the default menus and build it without relying on your libreclockwork repo? Will the extra debs from your repo be part of that, or will require later installation? Will armbian autobuild system pick up the devterm config and start building nightlies for devterm?

Meaning, I can select it …

yes, since it merged in master so you can pull the latest commit(nightly) and build your image before official release :slight_smile:

Will the extra debs from your repo be part of that,

yes the armbian repo is a minimal releases and only include required script & package, so if you use armbian/build you need config those tools/step manually

hard reset to specific git version is not necessary if you only use userpatches from my repo

CXM, amazing. Do you realize you just accomplished what a bunch of DevTerm users have been asking ClockworkPi to do for a while now? Great job.

What are your future plans for the “libreclockwork” account on GitHub? Will you be producing binary releases, or do you prefer people just to build it themselves? Do you have any other cool DevTerm projects you are working on? Have you seen the technical discussion occurring here about sleep/suspend mode?

I’ll also ask now, because it’s going to come up - Any plans to add an A04 build config?

I only have A06 so I cant build image for A04 :frowning:

about suspend, maybe I will look into but just based on my interesting, so maybe it may or may not do it quickly :grin:

if you like this repo please star it hehe

Good day. Tried to build it in wsl and got this error:
/home/wsl/devterm-armbian/build/lib/main.sh: line 591: chat: command not found

What I did wrong?

I guess you need to install chat on your WSL

Well, it was because somebody did not used “preformatted text” tag so quote symbols was malformed…
Anyway, here the script that automates almost everything:

#!/bin/bash
apt-get install -y build-essential ppp git
mkdir ./devterm-armbian
cd ./devterm-armbian
git clone https://github.com/libreclockwork/armbian-clockworkpi-a06.git
git clone https://github.com/armbian/build.git
cd ./build
git reset --hard 042cdbd6a3e157aaaf8b1d81865c78f45dafbbf4
cp -rf ../armbian-clockworkpi-a06/* .
./compile.sh BOARD=clockworkpi-a06 BRANCH=current RELEASE=bullseye BUILD_MINIMAL=no BUILD_DESKTOP=yes KERNEL_ONLY=no KERNEL_CONFIGURE=no DESKTOP_ENVIRONMENT=xfce DESKTOP_ENVIRONMENT_CONFIG_NAME=config_base DESKTOP_APPGROUPS_SELECTED="browsers chat desktop_tools editors internet multimedia office programming remote_desktop" COMPRESS_OUTPUTIMAGE=sha,gpg,img

P.S. You cannot build this project in the WSL.

I found that user cpi is not added to the groups correctly. You can still execute sudo but, for example, firefox-esr will glitch with “config error”. So please execute the following command at the first boot:

sudo usermod -aG tty,disk,dialout,sudo,audio,video,plugdev,games,users,systemd-journal,input,netdev,ssh,bluetooth cpi && sudo reboot

Another essential fix after first bootup:

wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/clockworkpi/apt/main/debian/KEY.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb https://raw.githubusercontent.com/clockworkpi/apt/main/debian/ stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/clockworkpi.list

sudo apt update && apt install -y devterm-fan-temp-daemon-cpi-a06 devterm-gearbox-06 devterm-thermal*

P.S Well, printer does not work with this image, so it’s up to you guys to fix it :slight_smile:

Well, that’s typical. Glad I didn’t shell out for any paper for it now.
