What's the best option to connect a monitor to the Zeropi?
I have either a USB monitor, or a monitor with HDMI or VGA connection.

because there is no VGA/HDMI you could only use USB or a remote-desktop session (RDP/VNC/SSH)
you could try some "unofficial" self-build armbian (like a pine64 fork) where eth0 & wlan0 does work: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/9308-experiment-armbian-on-nanopi-a64/ (you need a small .dtb/.dts-tweak for getting the upper usb-port working) armbianmonitor -u System diagnosis info...

If there is only the task of this command for apt then you could apt again - if there is more you should wait to let the installation be completed.

from where did you "git clone"?

The problem with both the Armbian and DietPi is they don't have support for the 5102A Audio Hat. but YOU can enable armbian to support the 5102A Audio-Hat :) with my instructions :) My Neo can use it! https://forum.armbian.com/topic/9009-info-friendlyarm-pcm5102a-hat-with-nanopi-neo-under-mainline-...

thanks for the reply. as I can see it the max frequency is capped to 816MHz on this NanoPi Neo2 v1.0 running the latest armbian stretch. can this be changed? the 1.01.Ghz (or 1.08) are from my Neo2 LTS v1.1 (1GB Ram) as I did see now.

when you use cpufreq-info (without a -p) then you could should read: hardware limits: 120 MHz - 1.01 GHz available frequency steps: 120 MHz, 240 MHz, 480 MHz, 648 MHz, 816 MHz, 960 MHz, 1.01 GHz available cpufreq governors: conservative, userspace, powersave, ondemand, performance, schedutil current...
on the wiki page
they named the standard 40 pin Connector GPIO1 because of the additinal ports on the 24 pin row GPIO2 :(
maybe they want to sell the new Duo2 with 512MB?

maybe the Duo2 is useable with an apdapter in your pcb?

You could try to expand eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces:

how about:
dmesg|grep -i eth0

or if the ethernet-module/driver has been loaded:
did you try " sudo ifconfig -a " if there is any eth0-device? you can also check the output of " dmesg " if there are any errors about LAN/GSM. Did you check within " npi-config " if there is any hardware disabled which can be enabled? If eth0 could found with "ifc...
I get the same issue on mine as well. Wish they would fix it already as I have told them about this months ago. As I remember FriendlyARM wrote in some forum-thread that the eMMC on the "breakout" board of the NanoPi Duo was never supposed to be a bootable device.... They wrote is should ...
which port (UART/WiFI/Ethernet?) do you use for the console? Did you insert the Duo2 the right way to the box-board? Do you power the box board via MicroUSB-Port?

Almost everything works out of the box. In the meantime I did this experiment and edited the pin64-boardconfig inside the armbian-build-system for the NanoPi A64, because the complete build-system did have a .dtb and defconfig-file for the NanoPi A64: ./build/cache/sources/u-boot/v2018.11/configs/n...
In the meanwhile, the latest Armbian build for the pine64 is declared 'stable'. And ir runs perfectly on my nanopiA64. Wifi is recognised and easy to configure. Almost everything works out of the box. Cool would be when ethernet (RTL8211E) would also be recognized, but with the pine64-image only wl...
Actually, more than that, but including google searching, it takes me about 2-3 hours to complete all. Most of the problem is related to the python script, just settle the errors one-by-one.

If your 2-3 hours are the same work as 2-3 hours for me than it seems much work for this little display :(
Hi guidol, Mine is Neo2 with OLED, armbian is working fine with my neo2. However, it takes many steps for the python script to work.
