  1. Thanks @Igor, yes the problem is with script.bin. When using h3disp a script.bin with current date/time is placed in /boot which results in blank page. when I copy /boot/bin/orangepipcplus from Sep 2 2017, with 36568 bytes from the *not updated* opipcplus over it, then I have a correct image. However there is another problems, independent of script.bin: There is an empty /etc/resolv.conf so that no names are resolved on internet. I have to call dhclient by hand, which produces a valid resolv.conf Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8) # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN nameserver search Here is my armbianmonitor -u and here is something very strange: the update went through without errors but: root@JagOpi:/var/lib/rpimonitor# armbianmonitor -v Starting package integrity check.

  2. After a long time of happyness I got careless and did an apt-get upgrade on one of the OrangePiPcPlus, and I my Eizo FlexScan S1921 Monitor does not sync anymore. I need a Resolution of 1280*1024 at 60 Hz with a pll_video of 432 Mhz. I tried to reselect -m33 on h3disp but this did not change anything. Is h3disp even supported anymore? Have there been changes to the legacy kernel or the way resolution is selected?

  6. Hi sniffyjaay i have several opipcplus working in a "lean desktop" mode. They run armbian 5.25 jessie with the legacy kernel. I have tried to cut back on the insane writing of cache and state data by firefox, have installed qpdfview, the complete libreoffice, xfce4-power-manager and lightdm instead of nodm. They are always on and run reliably over ethernet or wlan connected by the user's mount to a samba server with the data. As surfing station and Office PC they run reasonably fast, especially when you consider that you don't have to wait for endless windows starts and -updates. When a user is logged in but not active, the OpiPcPlus falls asleep after selected half hour, and stays ready consuming only a few mA until the button is pressed, then it is back within a second. I did not bother with cases, but mounted the pi's vertically with 5mm distance on a little wood plate fixed to the desk. This plate also holds the wifi antenna on its top. The natural airflow before and behind the board is easily sufficient for cooling with a simple Al heat-spreader. Until now I failed to have them fall asleep when unused without user login, although I edited logind.conf. I would like to achieve this not only to save the little energy, but also to save writing to the SD card and to stop burning an image into the monitor. hth, gnasch

    [Example] Support proposal for ROCK64

    Hi devs, you are complaining about support nightmare. Microsoft had it much worse, with all possible shitty hardware being introduced without drivers and users expecting it to be supported. Their anwer: "Certified for Windows Vista" with a nice icon to be printed on the sales page. Conditions for the hardware vendor to include the icon was defined by Microsoft. No hardware vendor will read the complaints in your forum. Armbian on the other side has quite the reputation. Do the same, define conditions for boards to be "Certified for Armbian" and push the vendors your way. best, gnasch

    Orange Pi Plus 2 Blocks Internet

    Hi I did not really understand your network setup. Maybe describe it? Is this the "two interfaces on the same subnet problem?" In this case see here: or do you have some "cable modem" which could be bound to the MAC Address of the connected interface? Difficult to see from here. best, gnasch

    Odriod Xu4 eats my HDD every hour

    Hi, you can install sudo apt-get install ncdu and then run ncdu / this way you can see which files are the biggest, and after a few hours, which are growing. Keep us informed. best, gnasch

    how to start lightdm - h2

    Hi Bruno Armbian seem to offer only "server" distros for the pi zero which means without GUI. I do not have zero, but opi pc plus for which armbian "desktop" exists. you might try: # apt-get install lightdm followed by: # service lightdm start But it would be easier if you get an opi for which a desktop armbian exists. best, gnasch
  11. Hi Loanrn If you have quite a benign, electrically undisturbed environment and short distances to your sensors you might get by with properly shielded and grounded cables to your sensors. For factory floor environments and such you might want to read the ISOFACE product brief from infineon, which deals with isolating your I/O to the microcontroller. best, gnasch

    UART unreadable characters

    UART unreadable characters

    I think a directly connected RS-232 port expects voltages of +3..15V for a logic "0" and -3..15V for a logic "1". Your opi outputs signals that use 0V for "0" and 3.3V for "1". hth, gnasch
  15. I think you need the desktop version, and the video player mpv can be controlled by the command line or via ssh. best wishes, gnasch
