  1. Hi! Now that the camera interface has been merged in mainline Kernel, I would like to try to use the OrangePi OV5640 camera module on my OrangePi One. So with the latest Armbian Bionic (20.02.1, kernel 5.4.20), I have been trying to get a device tree overlay. But for now, it fails to compile with: $ sudo armbian-add-overlay sun8i-h3-csi.dts Compiling the overlay Error: sun8i-h3-csi.dts:27.23-24 syntax error FATAL ERROR: Unable to parse input tree Error compiling the overlay My current overlay looks like this: /dts-v1/; /plugin/; / { compatible = "allw
  2. Hi, I have a couple of these boards which I have been using with Armbian and the old, 3.10 kernel. Ideally I would really like to go mainline as later kernels have some functionality that would be useful for my use of the board. The only remaining reason (apart from cpu freq.) for sticking to the 3.10 kernel has been the lack of MIPI DSI support in mainline, but now I see that, despite the Matrix at still being red for A64 mipi, some work is being/has been done by Maxime Ripard. I'm just wondering if anyone here knows if
  3. We have initial support for Pine64/Pine64+ for a long time in our repository but not released any official images yet. Since this will change soon a sneak preview what to expect. Hardware related issues: Please don't blame Armbian for the few design flaws Pine64 and Pine64+ show: These boards use Micro USB for DC-IN which is the worst possible decision. Most USB cables have a resistance way too high and are responsible for severe voltage drops when consumption increases, then the tiny Micro USB contacts have also a pretty high contact resistance and also maximum a
  4. Hello all I want to control some GPIO pins on my NanoPi Neo (H3) board and installed WiringNP. Executing commands results in the error piBoardRev: Unable to determine board revision from /proc/cpuinfo I've traced the source of the error down to this line, where WiringNP tries to open /sys/class/sunxi_info/sys_info to determine which board it is running on. This path is not present in my Armbian os. I'm using 4.11.12-sun8i #20 SMP armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux Am I missing something here? Or are there alternatives to using WiringNP?
  5. Hey guys, I've spent the last couple of weeks trying to get a TFT display with touch screen to work on my Orange Pi PC board, and I've decided to share my step-by-step solution here. This tutorial is heavily based on Guide: How to use Touchscreen + LCD on H3 devices by Kutysam, but I had to do some extra steps for it to work properly. This tutorial is only for Mainline kernel, I was able to get the graphical screen working with Kutysam's guide for Legacy, but couldn't make the touch work. First of all this is the display I'm using: LCD module Pi TFT 3.5 inch (320*480) Touchscreen

  9. Today I swapped my old Neo2 against a Neo2 LTS 1GB in my NAS case - so I had a old Neo2 512MB free for the black Aluminum-OLED-case which I got in a drawer. Now I did try to activate the OLED in ARMBIAN 5.67 user-built Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.19.4-sunxi64 Linux npi-neo2-27 4.19.4-sunxi64 #6 SMP Fri Nov 30 14:02:43 +03 2018 aarch64 GNU/Linux First (like on a i2c-clock" I activated i2c0 in armbian-config: root@npi-neo2-27( armbian-config System --> Hardware --> [*] i2c0 After the reboot I checked for the i2c-OLED-device and got:
  10. Hi Team I have two brand new Orange PI Zero LTS. Is this supported with the normal Zero download? Thanks
  11. Hello, I have a massive problem as the time/date on my Pine64 keep changing randomly to the year 2113. In my project, I use several Pine64s and the problem now occurs on many of these Pine64s. Unfortunately I need the correct time for my project. I am using the following system: ARMBIAN 5.32.170911 nightly Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS 4.13.0-sun50iw1 (with additional overlays = uart3 and console = ttyS3) Could this be due to the error described in the post and is the bug fixed in kernel version 4.14? Could I install this kernel version 4.14 via armbian-config (next-kernel)?
  12. Well it took me longer than i hoped but i have managed to forward port icenowys code for TVE on the H2+/H3 to mainline armbian. It seems to work totally fine, with a few caveats. First: Sample images of it in action -> Second: the patch itself -> Third a prebuilt image for Orange Pi Zero: -> Howto: just put the patch into userpatches for the sunxi-next kernel, and build. it should apply cleanly. Its for H2+/H3. I have only t
  13. K-worker takes 10-20 % of one cpu core with later kernels. Does the 4.17 kernel still have this problem? Or is bionic a solution?
  14. Hello, I am using OPI one with Armbian_5.90_Ubuntu_bionic_4.19.57, so I fliped my 7" touch screen display vertically (rotated 180) by modifing: /etc/X11/xorg.conf/01-armbian-defaults.conf and it worked, but the touch doesn't correspond with it (still points as it was before rotation). how can i flip the touch information (x,y) coordinates vertically (rotate by 180)? Regards,
  15. Hi, I am trying to interface I/O expander MCP23017 to Nano Pi Neo2(Hardware specs:1 GB RAM, Gigabit Ethernet . Software specs: Debian Buster with Armbian Linux 4.19.59-sunxi64 ) . The issue I am having is I am not able to see the device when I run sudo i2cdetect -y 0 . I have enabled i2c overlays in /boot/armbian.txt . I am using 10 K Ohm pull-ups on SDA and SCK . I get no activity while running i2cdetect on the oscilloscope on SCK and SDA lines . Is this an issue with the kernel ?
  16. In the FriendlyARM thread we did try to use A64 images from the Pine64 or the BananaPi M64 with the NanoPi A64. The last times we did that with less success - OK Sytem is running but Network/Sound has to added via USB. No suppport for the onboard devices But today a user did wrote that - with the actual stable Pine64-image ( Armbian_5.69_Pine64_Debian_stretch_next_4.19.13 ) WiFi is useable. So I flasded the Pine64-image to a MicroSDCard and did boot. Additiionally I
  17. Edit: Please see my second post in this thread. I think I've identified exactly what my problem is, please see my second post in the thread. I need to change the display mode to something that my own TV is able to display. But no matter what I've tried, I haven't been able to change the display mode. How do you do it? ---- Hello, I just got an Orange Pi PC. I installed using the Armbian_5.32.170629_Orangepipc_Ubuntu_xenial_dev_4.11.7.7z image. I'm able to log in through SSH, and I've installed all updates (apt-get update && apt-get upgrad
  18. From reading through the forums I cobbled together what I thought might work for getting spi nor to boot, but it fails: Activate the spi-jedec-nor overlay in /boot/armbianEnv.txt : overlays=spi-jedec-nor param_spinor_spi_bus=0 Then, after reboot, "cat /proc/mtd" should produce something like this : dev: size erasesize name mtd0: 00200000 00001000 "spi0.0" Here is where it fails - I just get the heading, with no mtd0: 00200000 00001000 "spi0.0". Should I be using a different param_spinor_spi_bus? I assume that once that works, the following will work?
  19. Hi, OPiPC with latest mainline (ARMBIAN 5.34 user-built Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS 4.13.12-sunxi). Need to test the I2S0. From what I see in patches, the I2S driver code is already there so I just need an overlay to use it. Is there any DT overlay for using the H3 I2S0 with any codec ? Even as a generic simple-audio-codec ? Christos
  20. Hello, I have installed ARMBIAN 5.60 stable Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.14.70-sunxi on a Banana Pi M2+ and I need to read and write to the GPIO pins from a bash script, does anyone have a workable solution? I tried with an Orange Pi in the past and I compiled a binary to access the gpio values but it did not work and I cannot find that source any more. Thanks in advance.
  21. I have Orange PI PC Plus with GC2035 camera module. Upgraded to 4.13.6 sunxi-next mainline kernel and noticed that GC2035 camera driver is gone! Why is it so? Maybe someone forgot to include this driver to the kernel? People are still using these cameras and need them! If it was a conscious decision to remove the GC2035 camera from the sunxi-next tree - then, well, it was a horrible decision that should be reversed. Please return this driver. Earlier it was at ./drivers/media/video/sunxi-vfe/device/gc2035.c location, but
  22. Hello Folks, Good day. I hope you're doing great. I'm trying to make the OrangePI 10.1 inch MIPI DSI (product page) work on the most recent (mainline) Armbian build. Building the image using the OrangePI source repositories and following the instructions on OPi4B manual enables the LCD and touch, However, my intention is to make the LCD + Touch work on the most recent Armbian Focal (mainline). I've setup my Armbian build env but I cannot see to find how to enable this MIPI screen on any build options. Here's the instructions from Page #20 of OPi 4B manual: Down
  23. Hello everyone. This happens on my OrangePi after a couple of hours of running. I don't think this happened before installing the kernel 4.14. I haven't changed my power supply, which should be working well - custom DC/DC converter connected to GPIO pins. Is anyone else experiencing this? Anything I can do?

  24. Hello, I am trying to communicate with a mcp2515 breakout (8Mhz oscillator) on an Orange Pi Pc+ I have modified the breakout following info on Raspberry Pi: HowTo/Quickstart MCP2515 to keep logic level @3v I have two other nodes composed by two Arduinos, with same (not modified) breakout, one that transmits the other receives. I have successfully tested the first breakout (used on OPi) with an Arduino (powered by 3.3v and 5v on TJA1050). It lets me think that hardware is OK. Below photos of wiring (nb: orange wire becomes red, is wired near TJA1050 =
  25. Hi, I want to use g_ether on NanoPi Neo Plus2. For Neo Air, I have already figured out how to do this and I can see usb0 in config. But with armbian 5.85 (4.19.38-sunxi64), the same instructions fail at sudo ifconfig usb0 up with the message "usb0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device". Could somebody tell me how to activate USB OTG on NanoPi Neo Plus2 and then use g_ether. I think the same holds true for g_serial. This could be an alternative, but I would prever ethernet connection. My target: Connect NanoPi Neo Plus2 with NanoPi Neo Air via Ethernet
