Armbian for OrangePi PC2, AllWinner H5


Christos
 Share

Question

Hi,

 

Are there any news on if Armbian will be on the new H5 64bit board?

Orange released an Android SDK and an Android image but I guess everyone is waiting for a decent 64bit Debian.

 

Since took the plunge and got into the H5 wagon ordering one, I looked at the released info and obviously there was nothing I could use myself..

So the question goes to the Armbian gurus, guys do you think that there could be an Armbian release for H5 this year?

 

Christos

Also in next (that I understand it is mainline)?

Yes

 

Just now, Menion said:

Because, AFAIK, this has been removed due to unstable DT bindings for all the board

But we (and Icenowy in her branch) reverted that removal.

"Unstable bindings" doesn't mean that something isn't working or is unstable, it just means that DT maintainers are not happy with the way DT represents the hardware.

Today the 7th iteration of the attempt to resolve this was posted: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux-sunxi/jxF_AIJP0VA

Guys, thanks for update of image.

Verium miner

Before update:113 h/m

After update:141 h/m (not sure of exact number, but hash rate is raise is about  25%)

 

Throttle is working -  temp keeps about 66-68 degrees.

Output of armbianmonitor can be found here : http://znoxx.me/2017/10/20/na-frontie-orange-pi/

 

And yet another point. If one is using I2P on OpiPC2, probably, it will fail to run native big integer library, since it is not included in distribution.

I've build one - you can grab one here: https://static-bins.herokuapp.com/files/aarch64/libjbigi/libjbigi-linux-armv8-a.so.gz

 

Unpack the archive and copy .so file with name libjbigi.so to your I2P installation directory. After this restart I2P. Log should show, that Native Big Integer library is loaded from file.

I've build it as static for OrangePi PC2 , but it also should work on other H5 boards. However, I didn't have a chance to test it on other machines, even ones different from one where it was build. So if someone interested, welcome to try it.

Hello. On OPZ2-H5 with latest build of armbian (both next and dev branches)  lsusb return error -99. Dmesg show no errors. Do i need somehow manually enable USB or use overlay?

With overlay usb on OPZ2-H5 working fine.

Is it possible to change on the fly the MUSB from OTG<->HOST without having to do so in the dts?

If it is in OTG mode (dr_mode = "otg") (and you loaded at least one gadget module) it will already switch from device to host mode on the fly by reading the OTG  ID pin. Alternatively it may be possible to load overlays via configfs to change the dr_mode property, but it wasn't tested so I'm not sure that the driver will respect those changes.

With original dtb, dr_mode='otg' I plugged an USB key but it doesn't get recognized. I changed the dr_mode='host', rebooted with the new dtb and then it worked fine. USB key is connected with a micro USB to USB A female cable, also named OTG cable, can this be the problem?

Ahhhhh ok ;) Next time I will recompile the kernel I will enable one then

They are already enabled in our kernel config.

Alternatively you could add a DT overlay to change dr_mode to "host" - then it should work without loading extra modules but without a possibility to switch to the peripheral mode on the fly.

Hello,

 

I noticed that there isnt any support for the Orange Pi Zero Plus (H5) and would ask if there is a reason for it. They are more of an original Orange Pi Zero with an H5 from an hardware perspective and dont come with onboard flash.

 

Have a good Day

Any prevision to have a stable release for Orange Pi Prime?

I'm actually waiting for a debian based armbian image instead of Ubuntu. :(

 

Someone who tried this unstable version on a pi prime can share the faced issues?

Basic hardware features are operational - but all mainline kernels for H3/H5/A64 boards remain labeled testing (also after next major release) since things are not well tested, not fine-tuned (thermal protection) and there is nothing we can do to speed up. In the testing period we don't make all possible images, so you have to make your own (Debian Stretch) image or wait ...

HI

How does it change screen resolution from 1024x768 to 1920x1080 in orange pi H5 processor? ( XFCE )

I was trying this in armbianENV.txt

setenv load_addr "0x44000000"
setenv overlay_error "false"
# default values
# setenv rootdev "/dev/mmcblk0p1"
# setenv verbosity "1"
# setenv console "both"
setenv disp_mem_reserves "off"
# setenv disp_mode "1920x1080p60"
setenv rootfstype "ext4"
setenv docker_optimizations "on"
setenv video-mode sunxi:1920x1080,monitor=hdmi,hpd=0,edid=1
saveenv usbstoragequirks=0x2537:0x1066:u,0x2537:0x1068:u

OR add to the boot.cmd

setenv video-mode sunxi:1920x1080-24@60,monitor=hdmi,hpd=0,edid=0

but it does not work.

I am not programmer, maybe i am doing something wrong or stupid.
