  1. I've been playing with Orange Pi Zero. I've been playing with both Armbian_5.25_Orangepizero_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113.img and Armbian_5.25_Orangepizero_Debian_jessie_default_3.4.113.img . I've been using a FTDI communication Serial adapter on a Mac Laptop via Terminal $ screen ≺port_name≻ ≺baud_rate≻ In my case the screen command looked like this: $ screen /dev/tty.usbserial-AE00BS5L 115200w What I've discovered is when I'm using serial communications, tools like $ nano filenamee or $ nmtui , the system interface gets all screwed up. If you have the commands m
  2. Background: I'm using Orange Pi Zero for data I/O. I'm using to manage the GPIO stuff. So I've been writing programs in C/C++ using the simple nano editor via SSH to my Orange Pi Zero. I start by doing all code edit within on my laptop/desktop computer. (I ALWAYS want a record of what I'm changing... ) I keep track of code changes via Git and the Atom content on my laptop/desktop. When it comes time to push code to the Orange Pi, I SSH login to the orange pi: Delete my old workingCode.c file (erasing big blocks of code within Na
  3. I'm trying to understand how you get from point A to point Z via that matrix repository at Github. That repository is intended "Nanopi2/Fire/M2" devices, yet the Orange Pi Zero is an Arm H2 device. Remember the orange pi zero is listed as the topic for this posting. Is the Orange Pi Zero Arm H2 really a Nanopi2 / Fire or M2 device? How do you know that? Are these things the same? (I'd refer to the sheet at the matrix repository, but alas, that doesn't exist... sigh.) Orange Pi Zero = Arm H2 Quad-core Cortex-A7 1.2Ghz. Raspberry Pi Zero =A Broadcom BCM2835 application p
  4. Sorry.. I should have been more clear. Is there a setting somewhere that can be used to determine if the internal CPU temperate is stored as degrees Celcius or as milli-degrees Celcius. We could do a hack, like If value is numeric and less than 1, assume the data is milli-degrees C and divide by 1000 But that just seems wrong. I was thinking there is an internal value stored in that that could be polled to indicate CPU type / mfgr model / etc...
  5. So I just received a couple of Orange Pi Zeros. I thought for a fun first project I'd port the pi-hole project. The Pi-Hole project creates a black hole / dns server for your home network that filters out lots of extraneous advertising. Its a pretty nice project. Reference: I ended up using a semi automatic install for pi-hole: git clone --depth 1 Pi-hole cd Pi-hole/automated_installer/ bash There was one hiccup. The admin page for the pi-hole (run on your local
