I suspect Fedora works well with the latest kernel.

Fedora 28 (probably still 4.17.n) can be gotten from the production page:

You can get Fedora 29 or Fedora Rawhide (30) which already has 4.18 from:

I am currently testing F29-Xfce and minimal on Cubie2 as it has openSSL 1.1.1 beta.

There has been a thread on this over at the Centos7-arm SIG.

Go to:

And look at the "Cubieboard5 performance" thread I started.

I don't own a Cb5, but was looking into one.  Decided no due to that sata is via internal usb, but it started an effort to finally get the right uboot and kernel in place.

You may be able to use this kernel work for linaro.  Or switch to Centos7...
General Discussion / Debian (ARMBian) Stretch
« Last post by chema on August 07, 2018, 05:12:46 am »
I am developing a project that fits very well in the CUBIEAIO boards (both A20 and S700), but I need a 'modern' Debian, and I did not find any reference to Stretch instalation in this boards.

Did anyone in the forum achieve it?

Thank you for your answer


Все доброго дня и хорошего настроения!
В Cubieboard 2 я больше гость чем даже user.
Мне принисли 2 терминала и просят настроить. Я уже перепробовал прилично вариантов и везде что-то не работает.
Прошу помощи у профи/постоянных посетителей.
Требуется поставить минимальную OS + 4 ярлыка rdp с разными данными (подключение к win server 2008 R2). microsd записываю с помощью win32diskimager. Важно что мониторы подключены по vga. Если будет поддержка hdmi тоже будет круто!
Было бы не плохо если бы у образа не было проблем с berryboot. Планирую загрузиться с версии 2014 года и по сети подтянуть OS. Уж больно красива выглядит идея с прокладкой под OS.
Заранее огромное спасибо тем кто откликнется и подкинет ссылочку на стабильный вариант без излишеств))))
In case someone needs a modern kernel based image. I don't have this board, but it was confirmed working. We don't have the plan to support this board. It comes as is.
Cubieboard v4 OS (A80 Based) / Why different controllers for 3D and 2D?
« Last post by rrb on July 04, 2018, 01:48:57 pm »
Dear humans,

I would like to know the reason why do we need to load different controllers for the video output on CC-A80. I would understand that they are different circuits, but they should be targeted on the same controller. Is there any efforts in solving this?

Thank you for your time,

and i have no idea how to upgrade kernel to 3.8+ right now!

Even Ubuntu 18.04 with kernel 4.17.y is possible :) Recommended install is Debian Stretch with 4.14.y ... Docker is supported on all Armbian builds, where the kernel is recent enough.

 Hello !

im using cubieboard3 with Ubuntu 14 installed on 64GB microSD (Linux cubie 3.4.79 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux)


Pihole (Ads Blocker)
DnsCrypt-Proxy (2.0.8)
OpenVPN client (OpenVPN 2.3.2 arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf)
Monit (eyes on some services to auto fix them in case of failure. e.g openvpn)

wlan0 is connected to my 4G usb modem + Pihole + Dnsmasq DHCP + DnsCrypt-Proxy
wlan2 TP-Link TL-WN722N N150 High Gain USB Wireless WiFi (A USB wireless adapter that supports HOSTAP mode. using this for hotspot.) running custom dnsmasq DHCP config for wlan2. created hotspot using HOSTAPD. some iptables magic and im up with secure WiFi for personal use.

faced a lot of issues, but eventually fixed them.
now my this setup CubieBoard Hotspot WiFi helps me to block online trackers and ads and much more on my home network. Phone + TV + PC. through wired net + wifi with traffic passing through NordVPN + DNSCrypt with DNSSEC + DOH resolvers.
using 10000 MaH battery pack (solar charged) that juices up my Truck all the time.


1- I wanted to install mitmproxy latest version. for this i need to install docker, currently my Truck running Linux kernel version 3.4.79, which is unsupported for running Docker. and i have no idea how to upgrade kernel to 3.8+ right now! any help would be appreciated.

2- Suggestions are welcome.

General Discussion / Cubietruck Plus: Compile mainline kernel
« Last post by DocBoolean on June 30, 2018, 10:46:03 am »

I'm running the linaro server image on Cubietruck Plus, but I can't get docker running, because the kernel (3.4) is too old.
Has anybody managed to (cross)compile the mainline kernel for this device ?

When I try to run dockerd, I get

Code: [Select]
FATAL[2018-06-30T16:38:18.973277773+02:00] Your Linux kernel version 3.4.39 is not supported for running docker. Please upgrade your kernel to 3.10.0 or newer.
I'd LOVE to get a current kernel running on this device! :)

Maybe we can figure something out together.

I tried to compile kernel 4.17.2 according to the original Cubietruck Plus config file, but the gcc version is too old and I can't get a more recent one:
Code: [Select]
make -j 4 uImage
  CHK     include/config/kernel.release
  CHK     include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h
  CHK     include/generated/utsrelease.h
  CHK     scripts/mod/devicetable-offsets.h
  CHK     include/generated/bounds.h
  CHK     include/generated/timeconst.h
  CC      arch/arm/kernel/asm-offsets.s
arch/arm/kernel/asm-offsets.c:56:2: error: #error Your compiler is too buggy; it is known to miscompile kernels
 #error Your compiler is too buggy; it is known to miscompile kernels

Any help is highly appreciated :)
