Power & Source of Big Ideas

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. 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 b...

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. How much more work is it than - installing armbian - enable I2C in armbian-config and - run OLED install-script from http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/NanoHa...

I am trying to build a wifi mesh network for urban robotics and would like to use the nanopi duo for the meshnetworking algorithms. I saw that an option for purchasing the NanoPi Duo is the "Kingspec 64GB MiniPCIe mSATA Half-size SSD for Industrial (+$45.00)", while I don't want to purcha...
I'm trying to use the debug UART of the Nano Pi M4. I connect via PuTTy. I set correct COM number, speed 1500000, but all I see is garbage. When I tried to change the speed to e.g. 1100000, I could type in all of the numbers 1-9, and top keyboard row letters (with occasional garbage). Where did you...

I2C for running OLED display is supported but needs to be enabled via armbian-config.

Anybody got the FrienlyARM OLED-Display running with armbian?
Or is it only to activate the I2C and use the Installer from FriendlyARM?

Is there any possible way to run the official arm debian on this board? the nearest option to a official arm debian is armbian stretch (or armbian bionic = ubuntu) with kernel 4.14.y at https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-neo-air/ debian stretch: https://dl.armbian.com/nanopiair/archive/Armbian_5.59_Nan...
take a look at the upper right pins for 5v in/out and gnd at the attached picture.
there you can power the NanoPi Air via the pins :)

Also you can read additional informations in the Wiki about the NanoPi AIr:

also the armbian image for the Banana Pi M64 do - somewhat - work at the NanoPi A64. Also no ethernet/leds/soundcard and only one USB-Port (the lower one) - but with a USB-Hub you can connect usb-ethernet usb-soundcard https://forum.armbian.com/topic/6987-a64-and-the-310-kernel/?do=findComment&c...

Hi Alex,

do you got downloadable images?

Cool would be a server-image (without desktop) and a desktop-image
(or a desktop image where we can diisable the desktop for server usage)

Kind regards :)
Really? Is that the only support? A good luck? igorp and I are also only users like you here - we are no support members of friendlyarm. With the UbuntuCore image from FriendlyArm is on FriendlyArm to support the OS-image they compiled. But Igor is the owner of the forum for armbian - which is a OS...
Pin 2 or 4 (5V) and 6 (GND) should be OK
Do only use one for +5V

The normal boot should work with 1A

I also see the Neo2 boot with the 5V of a USB serial adapter connected to a normal USB port on a PC.

So doublecheck your cables (are they to thin?)

And what is the reason for not using Armbian? Hi Igor :) I think he already do use armbian on all of the NanoPi Neo, but the newer hardware-revision (1.31) does the reboot in a other way than the hardware revision v1.2 But I dont know why he is using the "old" ARMBIAN 5.3.0 XENIAL 3.4.113...
I did not think it was a card problem as I would have expected to see a message from the "Bios" stating the card format was wrong ... I guess I should realise this is not a "standard PC" ! The "BIOS" is on a NanoPi the "u-boot" like on many ARM SBCs - but the...

Next step would be to display something on my screen.
