NCP on a RockPro64

ncp

#5

Ok, I’ve downloaded it. My Order was supposed to ship today from China. Hopefully I have it in a week or so. Will let you know when I receive my RockPro64.

Thx.

I ordered the 4GB RockPro64, the NAS case, the Case Fan, the tall heatsink, the 5A power supply, a 64GB eMMC card and the PCI SATA card. All totaled around US $200.


#7

k. sound like the setup i was thinking about.
i’m curious to get to know about your experiences with it…


#8

I will let you know. It was supposed to ship from China yesterday so I hope to have it soon.


#9

@nachoparker I want to test the image, too. Can you provide it for me, please.

let us know how it goes


#11

thanks! I will try it on the weekend.


#12

@nachoparker It is working like a charme! Great work!
Don’t know if I should open another thread or if can ask here what to do for moving from my old pi to the rockpro with a new hdd.
My thoughts are: full backup the old instance; put the old hdd in the rockpro, mount it and then just restore the backup.


#13

great! yes, backup and restore sounds good, I think there’s good info here

docs.nextcloudpi.com

My RockPro64 doesn’t boot up. I md5 checksummed the file and it is proper. I also formatted the SD Card and flashed with Etcher. I tried different RJ45 cables but with no luck. I can hear the drives run but I can’t find the RockPro64 on my network.


#16

After some trying around with pwr and reset buttons it finally started. But now it is stuck somewhere.


#17

do you have the same revision as @Christian_Schulte_ge ?


#18

Do you mean hardware revision? I can’t find what @Christian_Schulte_ge has.

I will look what mine is… Should it be printed on the board itself?

My setup:
RockPro64
2*3TB HDD connected via SATA


#19

My boards says: “RockPro64 V2.1 2018-07-02”.

I used “dd” like described in the documentation. Like this a white text says: “starting version 232”. I think this is GRUB. When I then push the reset button I see all the text going down to some point where it stucks again.

Do you want me to take a video?


#20

no need, well this is experimental even in Armbian. Maybe try to install their latest image and get NCP from there


#21

my version is 2.1 2018-06-06
But I only have one external 2TB HDD on the USB 3 port.


#22

You are right I tried to boot without the drives connected and all seemed to work fine. I then tried to connect the SATA drives but NCP couldn’t recognize them.

Is there a way to file a feature request?


#23

take this to the Armbian forums. I would try their latest image first


#24

I am having the same issue with Armbian. Have not had time yet to do some research and troubleshooting. Will post here once I have more details.
