    richardk got a reaction from Gediz in u-boot question: boot 2nd partition?   
    Okay, make sure to set BOOT flag on the second partition.
    Adding setenv rootdev "/dev/mmcblk0p2" to armbianEnv.txt to the second partition's /boot/armbianEnv.txt doesn't work.
    Moving on...

    richardk got a reaction from guidol in Rock64 LED control   
    Furthermore... these i2cset commands work:
    i2cset -f -y 1 0x18 0x52 3 # turn off both LEDs
    i2cset -f -y 1 0x18 0x52 2 # turn off white, turn on red
    i2cset -f -y 1 0x18 0x52 1 # turn off red, turn on white
    i2cset -f -y 1 0x18 0x52 0 # turn on both red and white

    richardk got a reaction from qblueRed42 in raspberry pi 4 portotype review   
    So obviously it's a "joke" video.  April 1st.
    So, what board is it, really?  The image in the video is mirrored from the real board (look at the chip labels - he printed the "Raspberry Pi 4" label backwards to compensate).  I think it's an Orange Pi 2+, hacked up a bit...

    richardk got a reaction from guidol in Armbian support for BeagleBone Black   
    Beaglebone Black (et al) are already in pretty good hands, as (seems like a project of Texas Instruments employees) does well supporting their own stuff.  If you want up-to-the-minute modern kernels, best by far is Robert C Nelson's work: .  (I support a commercial project with a Beaglebone Black inside, and I'm very pleased with the resources available.)

    richardk got a reaction from guidol in GPIO on a Neo   
    In Python:
      o = open("/sys/class/gpio/export", "w"); o.write("198");  o.close()
      o = open("/sys/class/gpio/gpio198/direction", "w"); o.write("out"); o.close()
      o = open("/sys/class/gpio/gpio198/value", "w"); o.write("1"); o.close()

    richardk got a reaction from fcc123 in [Solved] [Udoo Quad] Jessie to Stretch: not booting after upgrade   
    Just FYI, this is what I would use for UDOO Quad:
    ...but, only if you're not afraid of command line and kernel building.  Robert C Nelson does good work keeping his kit current.

    richardk got a reaction from StuxNet in What are you using your Orange Pi Zero for?   
    For my daughter: Generating sounds in a "Ghostbusters" proton pack, two of them in fact.     A Python script reads /dev/ttyS2 to receive instructions from an Arduino connected to buttons/switches, and mixes/plays powerup, powerdown, idle,  and fire sound effects.
