  1. Hello! I have an Cubietruck with an attached SATA-Disk. I would like to use the board without an SD-Card (I don't see why I should use one when I have a nand and a Disk). I can boot u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin using FEL and Armbian boots successfully. I can write stuff to nand, but I didn't manage to write an working u-boot to nand. Is the SPL-Version the correct one or the one without? Do I have to write to something special like MBR? Where does the BROM search for the bootloader? Does it parse the partition-table? Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello! I have the same Problem on the Huawei E3531. I attached dmesg after attaching on a normal Linux Mint-PC and my Pine64. Thanks in advance! Thomas linux_mint_dmesg.txt pine64_dmesg.txt
  3. Thanks, this really helped!: me@pine64:~$ uname -a Linux pine64 3.10.105-pine64 #2 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jun 23 21:12:42 CEST 2017 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux me@pine64:~$ sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/gpio [sudo] password for meroot: GPIOs 0-255, platform/1c20800.pinctrl, 1c20800.pinctrl: gpio-0 (? ) in lo gpio-72 (w1 ) in lo gpio-166 (1c0f000.sdmmc cd ) in lo gpio-231 (SPK ) out lo GPIOs 352-383, platform/1f02c00.pinctrl, 1f02c00.pinctrl: gpio-354 (wlan_regon ) out hi gpio-355 (wlan_hostw
  4. Hello! I installed a fresh Armbian (5.31; Server) on my Pine64 yesterday. Today I wanted to start playing around with GPIO ... And it seems like Pin 72 isn't working ... Doing the same on Pin 77, everything works fine ... For the secound test, I used https://github.com/databit/Pine64-CPP. I only added some Debug info to example.cpp. When I looked at the Schematics of the Pine64 (http://files.pine64.org/doc/Pine A64 Schematic/Pine A64plus 2GB Rev C-20160113_Release.pdf), I noticed that according to Page 7, the Pine has eMMC on it and the whole Port C is connected to it ... I haven't
  5. Hello! And another time sorry for the late reply! To be honest, it has helped less ... Ok, UAS seems to have less to do with SCSI/SAS-Disks. At least the protocol works with normal SATA-Disks, too. (What is the big difference between SAS and SCSI?) Sorry, I have a big hole in my knowledge according to SCSI and SAS! Still thanks for the link! Thomas
  6. Hello! Thanks for all the answers! Sorry, that I am that late ... I was ill and I completely forgot to look for answers ... I miss mail notifications (now I enabled them) ... Ok, you are right! That was the reason, I wrote, that I wouldn't buy it. Just for clarification: UAS has to do with SCSI, has it? What are the relationships with SATA? Sorry for this noob question ... I don't have done anything with SAS/SCSI-Disks ... According to customs ... I don't have a problem to pay some (lets say 20€) taxes, but for example a shipment (another Pine64) of a teach
  7. Thanks for your answers! I didn't know, that OrangePi is that bad, too ... I thought that USB -> SATA converters are horrible and a huge bottleneck ... I think I will wait and see if the espressobin gets supported better ... I want a stable OS (Ok, maybe it is one already). And GPIO is essential on my server ... The next question will be how to get one in Austria (I don't know the customs conditions but last time I had to pay a high fee for some Pine64). Thanks and I am still open for recommendations! Especially I am unsure how good RAID1 between USB
  8. Hello! I want to replace my old "Server" (Pi 1B) with something more powerfull. In the same move, I want to use my server to do a lot more things than it does now. To be future-proof I would like my server to have GbE and 2 GB RAM. I would also love internal storage that I am able to do software RAID 1 with my SD-Card for security (Could I also use an simple USB-Stick instead of onboard flash?). Also I want to have a Home-NAS for Backups. (SATA; GbE) I am wondering if I should combine the two into one ... in this case, the Server-OS would be backed up probably on my w
