    markbirss reacted to martinayotte in Orange Pi Zero, dev kernel does not see expansion USB ports   
    Be aware that OPi Zero NAS expansion board has 2 USB connectors, but only the one at the center is a real USB host.
    The other USB connectors at left near the barrel power DC is a USB Input to allow connecting the USB Hub to Non-Zero boards with a Male-Male cable.
    Plugging anything in this USB Input on a OPiZero is somehow shorting the whole hub which is already connected thru the pins header.

    As I've mentioned 3 weeks ago, if we could get this famous expansion schematic, we will prove that this connector is directly in parallel with the JMS578 and the header :

    Any chance i could ask you guys to do a nightly build for orangepizeroplus2-h5
    We are using it for testing on our mesh project (i know its WIP as i said for TESTING ) and would love to have the instructions to be in line with the other boards we are testing.

    There is no official support from Openwrt folks for this board, that's why. It looks like they only support old Allwinner chips like A10 and A20.

    I've created this script for building the latest version of PHP7 on any Debian based distribution:
    It worked great on Orange Pi Zero -- here is it running WordPress.

    If you want to attach I2S sound card on this particular board (Opi Zero) you will need to solder stuff. Get rather an Orange Pi PC+ board. It's few more extra bucks but you have analogue audio connector, I2S on header and more. On board wireless is also little better.
    For hifi sound you need an extra board / external DAC, something like this ...

    I've just written an article about my latest cluster build - a 5-node cluster using the Orange Pi Plus2E single board computers - each with 4-core ARM A7 running at 1.3GHz
    Please share the link on Facebook/Twitter/etc if you find it interesting. Thanks

    Anyway, all that aside...There's a nice work-around in the link Holzhaus provided...
    CODE: SELECT ALL infocmp >> terminfo.txt
    sed -i.bak -e 's/?0c/?112c/g' -e 's/?8c/?48;0;64c/g' terminfo.txt
    tic terminfo.txt
    tput cnorm
    Then just re-run "tput cnorm" each time you log in. This should be good enough for now. At least now I can edit text files without being completely lost

    markbirss reacted to Ikrk in Unable to build kernel scripts   
    For my purposes worked this workaround:
    in file linux-headers-3.4.112-sun8i/fs/Kconfig comment out lines
    #107: source "fs/fatfs/Kconfig"
    #287: source "fs/fs_compat.kconfig"
    in file linux-headers-3.4.112-sun8i/fs/Makefile comment out lines
    #76: obj-$(CONFIG_FATFS_FS)        += fatfs/
    in linux-headers-3.4.112-sun8i folder execute
    make scripts

    markbirss reacted to gaara in Banana Pi M2plus & inboard wifi [solved]   
    Ok guys, I've found a solution.
    It was the firmware and the files in the /lib/firmware/ap6212
    Here is a procedure:
    1) Download the firmware
    git clone https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI_WiFi_Firmware or
    git clone https://github.com/jrspruitt/FriendlyARM_NanoPi_Buildroot_Ext.git 2) Rename nvram_ap6212.txt to nvram.txt:
    mv ~/BPI_>WiFi_Firmware/ap6212/nvram_ap6212.txt ~/BPI_>WiFi_Firmware/ap6212/nvram.txt  3) Copy the ap6212 folder into /lib/firmware folder
    sudo cp -r ~/BPI_>WiFi_Firmware/ap6212 /lib/firmware Then,
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up should work
