  1. Polluting a Linux Distro Release with foreign packages is always a very very bad idea. It may lead to unforeseen library upgrades which may break library ABIs and also may completely mess up your installation. This is one of the reasons why Debian freezes package versions on a per release basis. The Debian model is extremely conservative, but it works. My servers are up and running since Wheezy and upgrades worked flawlessly. BTW: this package sideloading done by the armbian repos got me in trouble two or three times (quite some time ago). By the time this really pissed me off, so I switch
  2. Try to use following tool:
  3. Sorry, school kept me pretty busy.... actually i never created a releasable image, i configured everything on the fly on my tablet. I have not done anything since then, but most configs and packages were based on this project:
  4. Hint on how to maybe fix overscanning: set a smaller resolution by kernel parameter (example): video=Composite-1:720x480 Move the picture using this tool: This is a similar approach like I did on legacy kernel (read here)
  5. The rc.local script is a simple bash script which is executed after boot. Just open it with an editor and paste the tvout command that fixed your resulution in there. Should work somehow like this: First copy tvout to /usr/local/bin, so it is in your PATH: $ sudo cp /path/to/tvout /usr/local/bin Now edit rc.local: $ sudo nano /etc/rc.local Should look something like this: #! /bin/bash tvout -m -x55 -y10 For RetrOrangePi related problems you should contact their froum/devs. They seem to have my tvout program included in their image and lab
  6. For the first revisions not really I guess. The high temperature problem is much worse with the newer revisions of the board.
  7. I guess he ment the tool pointed out by @RagnerBG: Yes this tool should be compatible with any kernel version, because it is directly mapping and manipulating hardware registers responsible for the composite video output. This is more a hack, but it works.
  8. If you want to create a "web kiosk" you can try to use matchbox as window manager.
  9. Little Update: I replaced the kernel driver with the one from (->the one installed by the buid script) and found out, that this seems to be the faulty one! (Installed to /lib/modules/$VER-$LINUXFAMILY/kernel/net/wireless/ by default with the help of extras/, loaded at boot)! The stock driver from the linux-sunxi kernel (drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu) works without problems (Installed to /lib/modules/$VER-$LINUXFAMILY/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ by default, not loaded at boot). I should mention that I do have a internal wireless
  10. I guess the keyboard on the pocket pc is too small for serious work. Yeah I got myself this in combination with the tablet mentined above and I am quite happy
  11. There are many much cheaper atom (most of them are x5) based tablets out there with quite acceptable hardware specs. No need to buy this overpriced pocket pc. For instance: Chuwi Hi 8 pro
  12. Oh I see. Just found the pre-install script. Thanks for your help!
