  1. Hello everyone! I have a Cubietruck Allwiner A20 with 8G sdcard with Armbian 5.04 Debian 8 ( Jessie ) 3.4.110 - sun7i . When you start Cubietruck with sdcard Connected , I run the script /usr/lib/nand-sata-install/./ to copy the image to sdcard NAND . The same performs all the procedures without any error until the moment of PowerOff . When turning off the disconnect sdcard and turn again , though the S.O does not start. It is as if he had not copied anything to NAND , as if empty. Has anyone had this problem ? Grateful for the support of the whole community .

  3. I just updated the fswebcam code on github so you are able to set Exposure, Vflip and Hflip contols using command line if you don't want to mess with kernel side. Grab the code: git clone cd fswebcam ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-v4l1 --enable-32bit-buffer make sudo make install Some command line samples: fswebcam --Vflip 1 -r 1600x1200 -p YUV420P - > cam1600x1200_2.jpg fswebcam --Hflip 1 -r 800x600 -p YUV420P - > cam800x600_1.jpg fswebcam --exposure 4 -r 640x480 -p YUV420P - > cam640x480_1.jpg Exposure = [-4 to 4] Vflip = [0,1] - Flip image Vertically Hflip = [0,1] - Filp image Horizontally Enjoy
  4. Is there anyone who can give me some examples or description how to work with I/O, SPI, I2C, UART, TCP, and so on in Armbian (for example C code)?
  5. Hi ! Ref : Olinuxino LIME2 4G with new 3.4.112 kernel When installing to NAND, on the console I see a lot of : PHY_PageRead : too much ecc err,bank 0 block 276,page 4 PHY_PageRead : too much ecc err,bank 0 block 276,page 18 and so on ... Sometimes the installation succeeded, sometimes not, but the system is often instable, and finally, fully unusable. I tried all the precompiled images, then I compiled myself, but the same problem ... Until now, I used 3.4.106 without problems Thanks for support ! Greetings ,
  6. LED link on WAN port ON when disconnect cable link ( not change to OFF, always ON). Help me how to fix the problem
  7. I am a newbie here and newbie in Orange Pi One. Previously I have used Raspberry Pi in my daily projects. I burn Armbian 5.05 to my class 10 SD Card and after install the SD Card to the board. My Orange Pi One is booting properly but after automatic restart, my board doesn't continue to boot but the red LED is ON. I have tried to wait for 10 minutes but nothing work. This is my first booting .
  8. On a new installation cant access over SSH. Same on latest Armbian 5.04 Jassie and Wheezy. If I change the parameter UsePAM to no (in /etc/ssh/sshd_config), I can login via SSH. EDIT I fount the problem is with first run scripts. On legacy it looks ok, but on vanilla these scripts are destroying SSH.
  9. If you are reading this you've probably discovered that there are a few things about the Orange Pi series of boards that can be frustrating. I know I have been.. I purchased an Orange Pi PC and two Orange Pi Ones anticipating Pi bliss at a fraction of the cost of the Raspberry equivalent. I tried, and tried hard, to load distro after distro of various linux flavors onto micro SD cards with many a blank screen or an aborted boot attempt.. Orange Pi site distros, laboris distros, Armbian distros.. nothing seemed to make a difference. Reading about power supply issues, ornery boot processes, and overscan issues I was really beginning to think this was money poorly spent, after all the boards weren't much use as intert bricks.. too small and light to make for a decent paper weight or door stop.. no practical use at all.. perhaps I could crush them with a lump hammer to derive some satisfaction for fruitless hours spent trying to get these things to work.. Then it dawned on me.. perhaps there was something to the advice I was seeing on the forum.. Out of curiosity I tried a decent USB-lithium battery pack instead of the little 5v wall wart I was using to power my Orange Pi PC and low and behold the thing booted reliably. Go figure.. all this time I was blaming the board when it was really the #$!#!@ underpowered wall-wart causing the issue.. try the OPI-One.. same deal, it booted.. try the next One.. same deal, it booted happily. I then measured the current draw during the boot process and found that the Quad core board was actually a hungry little bugger.. peaking out at almost 600ma at one point in the boot process with no accessories attached.. before settling down to around 240ma at an idle. Lesson learned: Don't cheap out on your power supply for these boards... and you've made it over the first hurdle. Next hurdle.. the damn video is overscanning my LG HDMI monitor.. no adjustment on the monitor to scale the desktop image to fit the screen size, and no easy boot config file like RPi to turn underscanning on in the linux OS. This means I can't see the menus at the top of the screen.. I didn't have this issue with the RPi.. but hey the RPi cost more, has a user base of 6 million users and a dedicated, paid software development team with 4 years under its belt. Put it in perspective.. OPI is a smaller community and it takes time to develop code and work out the kinks in a product.. so a bit of patience is in order. Thank you to the Armbian developers and testers, your efforts are appreciated. So what to do about the overscan issue.. well I happened to have an HDMI to VGA adapter with a 3.5mm audio jack output on the side.. so I added it into the mix, and lo and behold the overscan issue was dimished a great deal..not perfect, but much more usable desktop real estate. Then I tried the MPV media player with Armbian distro to play canned mp4 videos and was favorably impressed with the play quality with the built in Mali hardware graphics acceleration.. easily as good as the RPi and Omxplayer.. perhaps even with better controls in the MPV media player app.. score one for OPI.. things were looking up.. this was along way from the inert brick I owned earlier in the day. So what about the overscan issue.. yes it is annoying, but perhaps over time there will be a software fix developed to make it go away.. patience. What else to do in the mean time? Well it is likely that the OPI in you life is not the only computer you have at your disposal.. so why not VNC into your OPI..? You can set the X-window defaults to a reasonable screen size.. and have your OPI desktop arrive in a window on your other computer.. Googling RPi VNC I found xtightvncviewer and xtightvncserver install instructions.. I installed, and went with a desktop size of 1280x600 for a comfortable fitting window on my RPI desktop.. and soon had a serviceable non-overscanned OPI remote desktop from my RPI.. hooray! No hardware accelerated video through the VNC session.. but a decent desktop experience for most other pursuits. Lesson learned.. OPI software is in it's infancy, and with time and effort spent, and some temporary workarounds.. it will find many uses. If you want closer to perfection out of the box than what OPI has to offer? Pay more and benefit from a more developed product.. however, if you want to work the line a bit - between cost and functionality - perhaps you have more time than money available at the moment - don't dispair at your purchase.. persist a while before you opt for the lump hammer option.. and you may get what you need out of the RPi's clone-family with a bit of effort spent.. Good Luck.

  13. Hi all I am currently working on my Orange Pi Plus A31s. What I did with your image so far: The image Link for Debian Jessy pointed me to the Banana Pi M2 image. Downloaded it, dd-ed it to the sdcard, powerup, the red led keeps flashing for ever (waited 15 minutes) So i started to wander around the sdcard and noticed the link /boot/script.bin pointing io /boot/bin/bananapim2.bin. But this file was not present. I tried all 3 images, but i was unable to find that file. I copied it over from other project, that did not work. And I copied it from the same folder /boot/bin/orangepi.bin -> /boot/bin/bananapim2.bin with the same result. Can you help me with this? Regards dns2utf8
  14. Hello, How I make to use usb printer in cubie2 with Armbian 4.3 jessie? I make the POS system and now i need the enable use printer usb. Regards, Marco Aurelio
  15. Igor P. please help me what to do and what is missing? Step0.(run) ./ Step1. Choose a board (cubietrack) Step2. Choose a distribution (trusty) Step3. Install desktop with HW accel… (No) Step4. Choose a branch (default) And I get the message in console error: [ o.k. ] Dependencies check [ @host ] [ o.k. ] Building [ Armbian 4.6 Cubietrack Ubuntu trusty default ] [ error ] Installation of package failed The core is not collected how to fix the situation??? And another question: Why different values have BogoMIPS on Cubieboard (proc/cpuinfo) in distributions desktop (956.10) and CLI (27.14)? Cubie operates in CLI mode on a lot slower? This is because HW acceleration use on desktop mode? And how to enable HW acceleration in CLI mode? Or this is a normal situation and run all the CPU cores the same everywhere?
  16. I just want to know how to boot from SD card again after setting boot from nand (./nand-sata-install) on my cubieboard. I got a "Reset board" message. Thanks.
