  1. I guess Step 1 is the kernel and U-boot patches you talked about. I have no idea of the status of this device in terms of whether any patches exist already. In answer to your question, I dont have a specific budget but if I can find someone who could assess and quantify those initial steps, and be confident to work on it, I'd be happy to discuss how they could be compensated for that. As for myself, from a technical perspective all I could do is testing and providing logs.
  2. Thanks lanefu, Is that something you would be willing and able to do, if you had the hardware? Peter
  3. I'm interested to see if I get any interest from the core group in beginning the process of adding support for ST Microelectronics SoC's by way of the Seeed Studio Odyssey STM32MP157C low cost development board https://wiki.seeedstudio.com/ODYSSEY-STM32MP157C/ With ST Microelectronics move into the MPU space, there is a lot of potential growth for a mature and trusted US brand with the integrity to provide proper documentation Free hardware can be provided if required. Free stuff. Just sayin'
  4. Got it. $ nmcli d wifi connect YOUR_SSID password YOUR_PASSWORD Love it. Thank you so much lanefu 😊😊
  5. Hi lanefu, Can nmcli connect to a network from scratch? If so, how? Or does nmcli just report the status of Network Manager? It seems to be pretty basic. Peter
  6. Hi the only thing we would need to do is configure WiFi via the command line, as we can't do it using armbian-config. Creating a wpa_supplicant.conf file with a relevant ssid and psk didn't work, and if I purge network-manager all networking is lost including ethernet. What would be the correct method to configure Wifi via the command line on an Orange Pi Zero (the latest Armbian Buster, kernel 5.8.4) Peter
  7. For what its worth, I've been streaming a 320kbps internet radio station continuously on an Orange Pi Zero running Armbian Buster (kernel 5.8.5) for about a month and it literally never misses a beat. So my personal experience is that neither the XR819 hardware nor the driver version that Armbian is currently using in 5.8.5 are intrinsically flawed. It is for this reason I'd love to see support for the XR819 finally make it into mainline. I am planning to use Orange Pi Zero in a significant project, and the somewhat unresolved formal status of the XR819 driver is the only fly in what is otherwise the very satisfactory ointment that is the OPi0 platform. Peter
  8. Congratulations and thanks to dbeinder (yoq) and fifteenhex for their patience and good work on the XR819 driver. What do we need to do to get the XR819 driver finally adopted into the mainline kernel? Excuse my ignorance, and if this is a naive question! I'm keen on using the Orange Pi Zero for a fairly substantial project. I had this from Xunlong about an alternative wifi chip with the same footprint: "We dont have plan to use alternative wifi chip for this model and have no idea on this. BR. Steven" I'd love to see the XR819 driver in mainline, to reward all this fantastic effort, and to improve confidence in the OPi0 LTS for our project. Any thoughts? Peter
  9. Hi, I have a friend who is blind and cannot use the standard ncurses armbian-config gui. Is there a way to switch to a simple text version, and if not what are the chances of a text version option in the near future? ?Peter
  10. Armbian Buster for Orange Pi Zero (kernel 5.4.45) is using an old version of gpsd which doesn't yet support ubxtool Armbian Focal does not have this problem Can Armbian Buster have a newer version of gpsd and gpsd-clients to support ubxtool Thank you
  11. Martin is a genius. Is there ANYTHING he doesn't know about SBC's......................
