  1. Werner, Here is my frustration. This site points to a Debian image for the R1. Where other sites point to OpenWRT and Ubuntu core. https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-r1/ Have you ever used Debian on the R1? Ken
  2. Werner, Thanks for the info it was very helpful. I would have replied earlier but this system would only let me post one message a day. Dumb question. I don't have to run this is a router do I? I can still compile and run 'C' code and Python? "2. no clue ." I now know why this was confusing. After reading available material I found the rear UART port by default in Debian is activated as a serial port. I.E. login. so that would eliminate the need to access the debug port next to the Ethernet adapter I.E. keeping the case open. Thanks, Ken
  3. Hi, I have a few questions about the NanoPi R1 system. 1) The (USB > TTL) debug serial port is that 3.3v or 5v? I need to get the correct adapter. 2) Hooking up a serial debug cable is there enough room to close the front plate? 3) Can the system run from eMMc and get software upgraded from the SD-Card? 4) I could not not find clear procedures for this. Am not familiar with OpenWRT. 5) Can the Ethernet port be used to talk to a P.C. running Windows (putty) or would the micro-USB to P.C. be better? 6) I would eventually use WiFi for remote access and updates. 7) Can the NanoPi R1 run Apache WEB server? 8) Can this run Debian or Ubuntu? If so where would the downloads be found? Looks like a fine product. If it works out I may buy several. I do have experience with Linux (several flavors) and the Beaglebone. My history goes back to 1974 and Unix from Bell Labs.
