  2. I had an annoying issue with the WiFi of this board with Armbian 5.65 Ubuntu and Stretch. Sometimes it would spontaneous lose its WiFi connection. After researching it for a while I noticed that the wlan0 interface sometimes lost it's IP address. At first I thought it had something to do with the DHCP lease or sleep mode of the adapter. I just couldn't get my head around it and I ended up removing network-manager and going back to creating an interfaces.conf file for setting up my network interfaces. Somehow this solved the issue, the WiFi connection hasn't failed since! To do this, first create the wpa supplicant configuration file: ~# wpa_passphrase "YOUR_SSID" "YOUR_SUPER_SECRET_WPA_KEY" > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf This creates a wpa_supplicant.conf file that looks like this: network={ ssid="YOUR_SSID" #psk="YOUR_SUPER_SECRET_WPA_KEY" <- YOU SHOULD REMOVE THIS COMMENT!! psk=A_VERY_LONG_HASH_OF_YOUR_SECRET_KEY } Than create an /etc/network/interfaces file that is suitable for your network like this example: auto lo iface lo inet loopback allow-hotplug eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp # With a DHCP address allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf # Or with a static IP address allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp address netmask gateway # (Cloudflare Secure DNS, another tip ;-) dns-nameservers After this you need to remove networkmanager: ~# apt remove network-manager and after rebooting your device you should be able to connect to it.
  3. Ended up creating a new Armbian Bionic SD. This fixed the audio output and also the armbian-config issue.
  4. I am lost, the soundcard used to work when I first started with this board but now I get a "aplay: device_list:270: no soundcards found..." error. When I tried to enable the analog codec using armbian-config I get an empty screen. This also used to work the first time. So I created a new SD card using Armbian Stretch this time but with exactly the same result. I am desperate! The diagnostic output is here http://ix.io/1x25 Kind regards, Hans C
  5. Hi Jrd, I also just started programming the OPi Zero Plus and I am using ArmbianIO as I understood the other two are for the Raspberry or don't support the H5. The problem that you describe could be contact bounce maybe? I didn't get to test the buttons in my project yet. Hans
