    Werner reacted to martinayotte in Orange Pi ONE Plus won't boot   
    As I don't want to undo the work I've done for 5.1.y, I've decided to download https://dl.armbian.com/orangepioneplus/nightly/Armbian_5.83.190502_Orangepioneplus_Debian_stretch_dev_5.0.10.7z instead.
    Effectively, it seems broken, stopping/freezing during boot with the following errors :
    [ 6.550967] cpufreq: cpufreq_online: CPU0: Running at unlisted freq: 912000 KHz [ 6.558474] cpufreq: cpufreq_online: CPU0: Unlisted initial frequency changed to: 1080000 KHz This must have been introduced between 5.0.7 and 5.0.10 ... I will investigate a bit more ...
     
    EDIT : I found something, replacing the 5.0.10 DTB by the one of 5.0.7 allows booting successfully ! ... I will compare them ...

    Right ! Every SoC users should have a USB-TTL Serial dongle nearby !
    (I've more than 10 of them, leaving them connected on all boards where I do frequent updates)
    My OrangePi3 is currently working with 5.1.0-rc4 from eMMC ...

    Sure I understand, Igor. I'm not in a hurry for my OPI3, it's a real pleasure to make this board work. If I can help in your work, don't hesitate to tell me. For example, I've found a way to adress GPIO pins withour installing WiringOP/WiringPi library. I use /sys/class/gpio , export, unexport, and so on. I have written a short daemon in C to send "1" to a GPIO Pin to control a fan. I use a fan, a transistor (to trigger the fan), a resistor, a flyback diode to protect the transistor when the fan is stopping, and to make this circuit more fun, I control another GPIO to light a LED when the fan is running!

    I love working with my boards, everyday I learn something new!!!

    It seems that base packages are different ... I didn't check anything at this stage. Perhaps a diff between stretch and buster packages should be nice to have. From CLI and desktop ... and adjust accordingly. Probably there are some other packages missing.

    The memory controller for the h6 is 32 bits, 4gb may be there but only 3 will ever be usable. Which is why they are being sold as 2gb/3gb options.

    Werner reacted to martinayotte in H6 Famous Reboot problem   
    I've compiled a new kernel with DWMAC-SUN8I as module, and it seems to be the trick, even no needs to do manual "rmmod", simply "reboot", using NetworkManager on my OPiOnePlus.
    I will verify that it still true with "old school /etc/network/interface" , and then I will also confirm that it is working the same way on OPi3.
     
    This would means something is wrong in the cleanup when built-in in the kernel ...

    This issue has been discovered 2 days ago, and it is not an Armbian issue ...
    Nigthlies are always images "no support ! use at you own risk !"
    There is no Desktop in Nightly folder ...
    Unfortunately no ! A 64bits SoC will always be 64bits kernel, even if you install 32bits libraries.
    If you wish 32bits, simply purchase the OPiOne which use H3 instead of H6.

    H6 has hardware virtualization, and now with mainline kernel it's possible to run KVM on it.
     
    For Xen, it's possible to port, but I don't know who wants to port ;-)
