    Orange Pi Zero H2 512MB GPIO shutdown button?

    More or less a python script monitoring a pin https://stackoverflow.com/questions/30334424/python-shutdown-reboot-raspberry-pi-script-using-a-single-button https://www.hackster.io/glowascii/raspberry-pi-shutdown-restart-button-d5fd07 <-this one has both shutdown and reboot but you have to wire up two separate pins. There are buckets of howto's just have to figure out what pins you want to use...then write the script...

    Which method to setup WiFi hotspot on OPiPC?

    Might be able to download the source code and the kernel stuff and build a driver for it https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Advanced-Features/#how-to-build-a-wireless-driver It takes a bit of fiddle futzing... Googled this https://github.com/sloretz/rtl8811au and this https://github.com/zebulon2/rtl8812au https://github.com/diederikdehaas/rtl8812AU I also wonder if using the nl80211 driver might not work similar to this https://www.instructables.com/id/The-OrangePi-Lite/ <-remember to keep the ethernet port stuff..don't get rid of that https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/developers/Documentation/nl80211 nl80211 is the new 802.11 netlink interface public header, I think it's already on built from the stock build, correct Igor?

    gotop

    Yeah, guess without cpu scaling taken into account...it's just glitz and pointless It does work well on my Laptop running Linux Lite thought...so for something like that I guess it's ok Was hopeful it would be useful...turns out it's just more useless eye candy Thanks for the report and testing...fooey

    corrected...sorry about that

    Orange pi zero fbtft unreliable

    Could be overheating the CPU...check the temps of your CPU...reduce CPU or provide heatsink/active cooling

    Which method to setup WiFi hotspot on OPiPC?

    Did a bit of googling More or less just google setup wifi hotspot on debian since armbian mimics debian/ubuntu architecture nicely You will need a compatible USB wifi card since the OPiPC doesn't have onboard wifi https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/debian-ubuntu-linux-setting-wireless-access-point/ here is a PDF...for rasbian...you can skip the OS install since Armbian is for Orange Pi...but the commands and more than likely the interfaces will be the same https://cdn-learn.adafruit.com/downloads/pdf/setting-up-a-raspberry-pi-as-a-wifi-access-point.pdf To make a hotspot and route traffic from one interface to another is a little bit more intensive than just setting up the interfaces The above PDF should walk you thru easy enough even if it is written for a specific device...it's pretty universal
  8. tkaiser when set to 816MHz....it in fact does drop approx 7-10C consistently... Odd thing is...on my Orange Pi Lite on my octoprint in the front room, it stays in the 32~ range...but in my closet running TOR/OpenVPN it's stays in the 42-54~ range...no HS on the one in the front room, but there is a ceiling fan near it...maybe just that little bit of air movement helps. But I can attest that limiting to 816 does in fact reduce heat produced considerably...biggest bonus...no more lockups under heavy load for extended periods. Thanks again!

    Possible addition for stock Armbian builds...adds quite a bit to the terminal based graphical status https://github.com/cjbassi/gotop

    OrangePi Lite Wifi Intermittent

    What is the CPU temp running at when it drops out? armbianmonitor -m
  11. Roger that...will check it out

    Orange pi r1

    I did some tweaking on my OPiZero...should work with the R1 Check out this thread... hope it helps

All I have is a passive heatsink thermal glued to the processor (no active cooling) Per user283746 in another thread You can set options manually but they are not retained after reboot unless they are set in the /etc/default/cpufrequtils sudo cpufreq-info sudo cpufreq-set --min 240MHz sudo cpufreq-set --max 912MHz

    Underclock Orange Pi Zero on mainline 4.14 kernel?

    Cool! Thanks for this Just tweaked to change my cpu minimum to 240MHz sudo cpufreq-set --min 240MHz changed my governor to conservative and now in my armbianmonitor -m shows it dropping down to the lower cpu speed and temps are dropping well at idle speeds
  15. Oh yeah...those A1 cards are STUPID fast...especially when doing apt-get update and upgrades!!! Thanks for clearing that transfer rate and sector size up...
