    aliceander got a reaction from Igor in orange pi one mainline builds (any recent?)   
    Ah, yes, I can see how that happened.  I've always been impressed by the system you guys created.  Not only do you support a kajillion different devices, you have a build ready to use by the time a brand new board has had the time to be delivered to my house.  And even though it was clear that mainline was not supported, I was guilty of coming to the forum to seek solutions for mainline issues.  I'm sorry I contributed to the problem.
     
    I may look into building my own, or at least look into it since I'm interested in learning the process, but I'm mostly thrilled to hear that a mainline kernel release is in the forecast.  One month is not long, and I realize that will probably slip out more than a month, but just knowing that it's coming soon makes me happy.
     
    Thank you for the explanation.

    Nightly builds were removed because people started to use them for real and keep asking why this and that is not working. That is only killing our precious time and doesn't help anything since most of the issues are known and waiting to be fixed. Sometimes it takes months before some issues are resolved.
     
    Mainline kernel for H3/H5/A64 is close to being released but it is not yet fully done and it is not tested. We are about 1 month away from releasing it. What can you do now? Build on your own and be ready for some issues and upgrade to stable later ... or wait.

    Thank you for spelling it out again.  I now have armbian 5.16 running on a NanoPI NEO.  Smiles all around ....

    @trewq please share anything that might help others who plan on getting their own neo (mine is on the way ;-))

    Did you read through the pinned thread [Tutorial] Orange Pi One - adding USB, analog audio out, TV out, mic and IR receiver  at the top of the forum?  I know it has some information on audio; hopefully it has something pertaining to your issue.

    Using all brand new equipment (an Orange Pi One, gc2035 cam on expansion board, 5V3A power supply, and fresh jessie server image updated/upgraded to 5.16) I can verify that steps suggested by @lex work and I can get a nice image from my CSI video cam with fswebcam.

    I would also like to thank everyone too.  I haven't been derided for asking silly questions (and, trust me, I KNOW some of them are dumb; but I'll only stay ignorant until I ask and learn).  Suggestions are quick and varied, and necessary changes are quickly implemented.  I consider this an ideal environment.
     
    I found this forum because I'm exploring different form factors.  So many choices!  My recent experience is with the orange pi one, but I'm really excited about the NanoPi Neo.  I found the discussion in another thread about that interesting so I ordered two, and when I get them I plan on following the suggestions to test armbian.

    Your magic incantations work perfectly! 
     
    I added "gc2035 hres=0 mclk=34"  and "vfe_v4l2" to /etc/modules and rebooted, but that didn't seem to have the same effect as when they were added manually.  Perhaps /etc/modules doesn't like arguments?  If so, is there a way to make it stick?  Should /etc/modules accept arguments?
     
    Also, "-p YUV420P" seems critical for fswebcam.  I'll study up on that this weekend so I'll know more about that soon.
     
    On a minor note, I may have damaged my little camera by checking, undoing, redoing, rechecking, undoing, and redoing the cables countless times trying to be sure I didn't have things loose or in backwards.  My jpg image has a lot of bright green horizontal stripes across the bottom.  I have another new orange pi one, camera, and power supply, so I'll set that up from scratch to verify.  My power supply is 5V3A, so I don't think that should be a problem.  The main thing is that I can get images!!!!

    Your suggestions worked.  I added (well, uncommented) the following two lines in /etc/modules
     
    gc2035
    vfe_v4l2
     
    And created /etc/modprobe.d/gc2035.conf with the following
     
    options gc2035 hres=0 mclk=34
     
    The modules now load as I'd like across reboots.

    aliceander got a reaction from Igor in SPI kernel driver   
    In summary to my original question, nothing has to be done to make SPI available in armbian. It's ready and waiting out of the box.  I've got a set of four MAX7219 8x8 matrices working nicely now.   
     
    This is different than raspbian, where it's my understanding that raspi-config needs to be run to enable SPI.
