  1. Hi, I have installed the legacy image (rather than the bleeding edge) and I now have working WiFi and UARTs. Thank you for your help Zador.blood.stained Gerry
  2. Hi, Thank you, yes you are right ,it was not obvious which image I should be downloading, the download page is not the friendliest I have come across. However, with that direction I now have a working wlan, so thank you for the pointer. The Orange Pi Zero is infinitely more useful now Gerry
  3. Hi, I guess this forum is too advanced for me.... thats a shame, would have been nice to learn a little more about this stuff...maybe even contributed. Thanks anyway Gerry
  4. Hi Zador.blood.stained Ok that would make sense then I am not really a Linux expert so I dont think I could do anything to help, I will have to wait for a future image build that works. Thank you for your response. Gerry
  5. Hi, Thanks for your response, I am afraid I do not understand it though, I am a relative noob to Linux so not sure what .dst/.dtb files even are? any pointers to some help/guidance you could offer? Gerry
  6. All, Does anyone know how I can enable the OnBoard Wifi using Armbian? Is there a driver included for for the XR819 on-board WiFi module? any pointers would be much appreciated.... Thanks Gerry
  7. BTW, I am using the following version: Linux orangepizero 4.9.0-sun8i #8 SMP Sun Dec 25 12:31:07 CET 2016 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux
  8. Hi, I am trying to use the two UARTS on the I/O pins which are UART 1 and UART 2 mapped to PG6/PG7 and PA0/PA1 respectively. I have had a look at the FEX file and these seem to be mapped correctly to UARTS's port 1 & 2 so I would expect these to be mapped to /dev/ttyS1 and /dev/ttyS2 but this does not seem to be the case. If I try to connect to these UARTs using screen I simply get the message: - root@orangepizero:~# screen /dev/ttyS1 9600 [screen is terminating] I have tried searching these forums and Google but have not really found anything - any help or pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated.
