  1. Hey all, same question, slightly different take. I have a SD to SSD boot setup that works. I'm able to make a 'DD' copy of the SD that also boots the SDD. I'd like to make a backup of my SSD but obviously don't want to make a 'DD' copy of that. Instead I plugged the SSD into my pc and make a 'tar.gz' backup. Now, I have a second SSD partitioned and mkfs'd same as orig. Also duped UUID using tunefs. I de-Ark'd the files to the SSD. SSD is mountable on pc and browsable. Plugged backup SSD into pi but get same boot sequence as original poster :(
  2. My Opi2e is in the middle of a long compile session and I just broke out the BPI-m2u to play with when this timely forum topic came up. Re: emmc, Yup, my bad. Was going by memory - haven't had it plugged in for a while. I had shelved the m2u because the hdmi was flakey with my old monitor. Re: "The vendor is famous for not being able to provide even correct schematic ..." Yes, they have a organizational failure. Foxxconn and SinoVoip are funding them but not holding whoever's in charge accountable. Their english is functional, and their grammer is awful. Communication is horrible. Re: "...trying to support their hardware is both an excercise in stupidity and a great way to waste your own time". You know, you really are an ass. I'll forward your sentiments to linux-sunxi where [PATCH v2] Initial Allwinner R40 support was just dropped by Icenowy Zheng. Re: http://www.linuxatemyram.com derp asshole. Responding to you is "both an excercise in stupidity and a great way to waste your own time". I'm done. go ahead and rage reply or delete this post or whatever. You're just the most toxic .. peace out.
  3. The sata, 2Gig ram, and 16G emmc appeal to me.
  4. Anyone have success with GStreamer and Xenial Desktop? Once upon a time (mid 2015) gstreamer used to work like this: gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=vid.mp4 ! qtdemux ! vaapidecode ! vaapisink Time has passed and the many parts that make up GStreamer (libva libcedrus vdpau-sunxi libvdpau gstreamer and gstreamer-vaapi) have evolved. I revisited this because I have recently stumbled upon an invocation that let's me play videos with hardware acceleration in gstreamer. I'm trying to stream h264 vid from my rpi-zero's camera to be saved/played/restreamed from my BPi ( i have both BananaPi and OrangePi+2e). This works--> rpi$ raspivid -t 0 -w 1280 -h 720 -fps 30 -b 2000000 -o - | gst-launch-1.0 -e -v fdsrc ! h264parse ! rtph264pay config-interval=1 pt=96 ! gdppay ! tcpserversink host=rpi port=5000 bpi$ gst-launch-1.0 -e -v tcpclientsrc host=rpi port=5000 ! gdpdepay ! rtph264depay ! h264parse ! vaapidecode ! vaapisink As you can see, the bpi invocation of gstreamer is very similar to the original way gst-launch was called. ps.. bpi$ export declare -x VDPAU_DRIVER="sunxi" declare -x VDPAU_OSD="1" declare -x LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME="vdpau"
  5. LXQT, http://lxqt.org, is actively being developed. It's supposed to be the new desktop in next release of Lubuntu.
