    Thanks ! Good to know !
    Since I'm preparing Armbian-DEV to switch to 5.0.y, I've simply added it to OPiLite2 and OPiOne+, and it works (at least in plain text console) !

    Should we tag the last commit before changing to the 5.0 work?

    Ok ! Since switching U-Boot is a less painful task than kernel itself, maybe we can switch sooner !
    I will try this afternoon ...

    Werner reacted to martinayotte in H6 Famous Reboot problem   
    Hi everyone !
     
    I'm starting this new dedicated thread because I've got some new headache about this issue that we tried to figured out since months...
     
    I've received my PineH64 last week, and with this board I don't faced the reboot hang behaviour !
     
    Today, since I've committed the OPi3 WIP scripts, and facing same reboot hang, I've decided to to try booting PineH64 image on this OPi3 board, but unfortunately reboot hang still occurs ...
     
    This brings me to a conclusion that it is not a software issue, but maybe hardware one ... I will dig on that during next few days by comparing PMIC and other between all those boards ...
     
    But I remember that @jernej said that Reboot worked on one of his H6 board ...
    @jernej can you confirm which board ? Do you have some boards where you still face reboot hang issue ? Can you try to mix image like I did to give clues ?

    I believe the temperature isn't showing right. It shows it's constantly at 55°C at idle, and above 60°C when in use. But the heatsink isn't even hot to the touch. It feels very cool. This can't be right.
    Must be something wrong with the temperature sensor settings.

    No auto-resize either. I'll try updating to bionic.

    I've just installed it, and first impression is, it isn't much better than before.
    It's unstable. Runs at 1.5Ghz, but seems a lot slower than others at the same speed. 1.8Ghz isn't possible anymore.
    Temperatures are of course better now.
    Here a 7zip benchmark with stock settings.

    I have watched this thread and decided to check the status of the mainline kernel 5.0 for the H6 with the @Icenowy 's work on top of it.
    I can say it works really nice (tested on Orange Pi 3 H6):
    * HDMI
    * DVFS
    * Gbps / ethernet
     
    I have prepared a blindly DT that should work on Opi 3 H6: https://github.com/avafinger/orangepi-h6-ubuntu-base-minimal/tree/master/dts
     @Igor , Basically fetch the mainline kernel 5, apply your patch set on top and add/modify my DT.
     
    I have tried to add i2c and spi but it did not work as i expected.
    I had something like this:
    For the i2c
            i2c0: i2c@5002000 {             compatible = "allwinner,sun6i-a31-i2c";             reg = <0x05002000 0x400>;             interrupts = <GIC_SPI 4 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;             clocks = <&ccu CLK_BUS_I2C0>;             resets = <&ccu RST_BUS_I2C0>;             status = "disabled";             #address-cells = <1>;             #size-cells = <0>;         };         i2c1: i2c@5002400 {             compatible = "allwinner,sun6i-a31-i2c";             reg = <0x05002400 0x400>;             interrupts = <GIC_SPI 5 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;             clocks = <&ccu CLK_BUS_I2C1>;             resets = <&ccu RST_BUS_I2C1>;             status = "disabled";             #address-cells = <1>;             #size-cells = <0>;         };             i2c0_pins: i2c0_pins {                 pins = "PH5", "PH6";                 function = "i2c0";             };             i2c1_pins: i2c1_pins {                 pins = "PD25", "PD26";                 function = "i2c1";             }; Default i2c in use (PMIC and possibly HDMI):

    For the SPI0:
     
            spi0: spi@5010000 {             compatible = "allwinner,sun8i-h3-spi";             reg = <0x05010000 0x1000>;             interrupts = <GIC_SPI 10 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;             clocks = <&ccu CLK_BUS_SPI0>, <&ccu CLK_SPI0>;             clock-names = "ahb", "mod";             dmas = <&dma 23>, <&dma 23>;             dma-names = "rx", "tx";             pinctrl-names = "default";             pinctrl-0 = <&spi0_pins>;             resets = <&ccu RST_BUS_SPI0>;             status = "disabled";             num-cs = <1>;             #address-cells = <1>;             #size-cells = <0>;         };             spi0_pins: spi0 {                 pins = "PC0", "PC2", "PC3", "PC5";                 function = "spi0";             }; One thing i noticed was some instability on SD card but resorting to 4.19-rc6 clk values fixed it.
     
    Regarding the reboot command, i applied the latest ATF power fix (as suggested by @jernej but reboot works exactly as shutdown -h now

    Check top for load. With 3.10.65 image it stabilizes at 3 which means three of four cores are permanently under full load which also explains the temperature issues. Did not test on OPi3 though as I do not have one but on OPi1+ which comes with H6 as well. 4.17 with initial support for H6 fixed this for me.

    I've received mine today ... Thanks to Humberg !
    I've built an Armbian 4.20.y image this afternoon, it boot fine, but no eth0 or WiFi, but I got networking using USB-WiFi dongle.
    For RTL8723, I've tried adding it in DT, but it still not appearing ... It is difficult to figure out without schematic, and schematic doesn't seems to be public yet ...
    I've posted on forum.pine64.org asking for that schematic, but no answer yet ...

    Oh my, I didn't notice. It's even worse than you describe! I left for half an hour the OPi3 idling and its load average is around 7, with cfinteractive taking 100% of the CPU...
    I managed to compile the kernel from https://github.com/orangepi-xunlong/OrangePiH6_Linux4.9 but now I have to figure out how to convert the image to u-boot format (this u-boot thing is new to me).

    @krachlatte did you receive your board? I'd like to help with testing but the instruction here: https://github.com/krachlatte/armbian-orangepi3/blob/master/README.md are not clear to me.

    I'll try with the latest image from https://github.com/krachlatte/armbian-orangepi3/releases/

    Werner reacted to hmartin in Orange Pi Zero wireless module status (XRADIO / ST CW1200)   
    First off, this happens on x86. Google "rowhammer" if you think that this kind of situation isn't a problem even for "expensive" computers.
     
     
    Xunlong never advertised the Orange Pi Zero as an AP! Please, show me where they said "use the Orange Pi Zero as a WiFi router"
     
    Even the cheapest WiFi routers that I know of cost $15 (AR9331/MT7620).
     
    This is additional functionality that we've been lucky to get from the WiFi radio, and now people are getting all pissed that it doesn't work as well as a Raspberry Pi.
     
    In my country, the Orange Pi Zero costs as much as a hamburger meal from McDonalds. Just try and use your hamburger as an AP...
     
    Fack, people. Lower your expectations.

Maybe we could kill all subforums to have it more clear..
