Orange Pi Zero - armbian-config doesn't load keyboard language module

Recommended Posts



I have a small problem: I can't change the language on my OPi Zero. I have successfully done that with OPi Lite 2 and OPi 3, but for some reason on the Zero when I go to change it, the module fails to load and just quits back to the same "menu page". (essentially does nothing). The only thing I can think of, is that both of the other boards have 1Gb RAM and this only has 512Mb and thus it runs out of memory? That doesn't sound too plausible though - a list of keyboard languages shouldn't take tens or hundreds of megs of RAM. 


As far as I know, each board is running the same version of Armbian, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Hi. Could you try to do it manually?

sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

Might be a bug in the script.

I wrote that command, pressed enter: it takes about 15~20s and then just gives me a new prompt. Does exactly nothing. 


anna@orangepizero:~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
[sudo] password for anna:

There is nothing in any logs that I could find, no messages, no user.log, no faillog, no syslog.. etc. It's like that command never run.
