  1. Try to use following tool:
  2. 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:
  3. 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)
  4. 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 labeled overscanning issues fixed within their release notes, so I guess they know how to handle it.
  5. For the first revisions not really I guess. The high temperature problem is much worse with the newer revisions of the board.
  6. 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.
  7. If you want to create a "web kiosk" you can try to use matchbox as window manager.
  8. 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 module.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Oh I see. Just found the pre-install script. Thanks for your help!
  12. I started a custom desktop build with a smaller set of packages so I do not have to scroll through the whole history. Here is the error: Preparing to unpack .../libmali-sunxi-r3p0_1.0-1~armbian5.31+1_armhf.deb ... Mali binary driver can be used only on sunxi hardware dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/libmali-sunxi-r3p0_1.0-1~armbian5.31+1_armhf.deb (--unpack): subprocess new pre-installation script returned error exit status 1 Seems like the package checks the hardware during install... Workaround could be to fetch the deb and manually unpack it with dpkg -x, I am not happy with that approach though.
  13. The process fails with following error: Processing triggers for systemd (229-4ubuntu19) ... Processing triggers for ureadahead (0.100.0-19) ... Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/libmali-sunxi-r3p0_1.0-1~armbian5.31+1_armhf.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
