    OK, evtest detects the button.

    I create a script in /etc/acpi/ with only:


    sudo poweroff


    and other config file on /etc/acpi/events/button_power with:


    event=button[ /]power


    Is correct this approach or I'm going in the moron way?

    Thanks again

  2. Is not completely related with storage but I'm following the process of a sysadmin trying to find the best cheap VPS. He is preparing an automated testing approach and sharing the ansible scripts and the results on GitHub.

    The guy is Joe and the GitHub is

    Maybe can be interesting to run same test on local servers and LAN or from WAN using DynIP.

    So at the moment it is not possible to use simple applications for windows in our Orange Pi?


    I'm not an expert.


    But you need to know some things:

    1. Wine is a "sort" of Windows Emulator to run some applications in Linux . You need to emulated the whole Operative System to cheat the App over the platform in which is running.
    2. Wine is x86 application
    3. Windows is a x86, intel and AMD only with some exceptions in the past and maybe in the future, Operative System
    4. GNU/Linux is a x86, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC, ... Operative System
    5. Eltechs ExaGear is a ARM application to emulated x86 CPU


    So in a Orange Pi you need:

    1. GNU/Linux ARM Operative System like armbian.
    2. Install ExaGear to emulated x86 CPU
    3. Install OS like Ubuntu 16.04 x86 (not needed beacuase Eltechs included in his software Virtual Machine or something)
    4. Install Wine x86 inside the Ubuntu 16.04 x86
    5. Install the Windows application




  4. I'm having problems with latest Nightly image "Armbian_5.27.170329_Orangepilite_Ubuntu_xenial_dev_4.10.3." 

    I can login using USB to Ethernet dongle, config Wi-Fi with nmtui and select Auto connect, in this moment I can release the dongle and connect by Wi-Fi without issues but if I reboot the OPiLite the internal Wi-Fi never comes up.

    Any solution or workaround to solve my problem?

    At least the whole naming scheme is already f*cked up to the max


    Is like Windows naming Ultimate, Pro XP, ...

    You can't imaging how disastrous is reading the Xunlongs Aliexpress page automatically translated to Spanish!!! is all about fruits and human body parts (ARM)

    Nope, not interested in RK3288 :)



    OK thanks for answer, I'm only checking possible cheap equivalent to th Asus TinkerBoard.

    I'm more or less happy with my armbian in Beelink X2 but always is nice to have 2GB of RAM and better internal memory for the OS.

    There are also a lot of RK3229 Android TV boxes but without proper Linux and similar specs than Beelink X2 I think is a waste of time.


    So just keep searching!
