  RetrOrangePi 3.0.1 OP PC doesn't seem to boot
Posted by: Vital - 08-15-2017, 02:48 PM - Forum: Solved threads (also check FAQ and HOWTOs) - No Replies

Hello !

At first sorry if i didn't post in the good section...

I just got a Orange Pi PC and i really enjoyed starting playing with this.

But when I plug my sd card flashed with Retrorangepi 3.0.1 nothing happen, the power led still stay green and my screen black.

I tried  with a 16gb class 10 and a 64gb u1 sd card, flashed and formated  sd cardformater v5.0 and win32diskimager, Etcher and delete/recreate partition with MiniTool Partition Wizard but still nothing.

For information i tried with sucess Debian, armbian, lubuntu and android and i am on window 10, hdmi screen and 5V 2.5a power supply.

Maybe should i try with an older version of retrorange pi ?

Thanks for any helps. Heart

  Small tft display
Posted by: korrmet - 08-10-2017, 07:18 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

Hi all!

I'm trying to start 3,5 tft display using fbtft. I connecting to Orangepi via rs232 terminal. So i already startx using this tool but display starts work only after i enter command "startx". After that i see xfce desktop.

Please help me to start this display at boot. I don't know linux at well and don't know what i need to do/learn at first. I think i need some method to set hdmi resolution to 480x320, remap it to some framebuffer and after that configure fbtft_device driver to use selected framebuffer. But i don't shure and i don't know how to do it.

I'm sorry by my English.

Posted by: eltecho_yqr - 08-02-2017, 01:13 AM - Forum: *nix Distro - No Replies

I recently purchased an Orange pi pc plus
I am unable get it to boot form any sd card images... it always comes upe to the screen in the attachment.
by luck I repowered the system without a sd card and it botted to the same screen, so I think the emmc has an android system in it and I need a way to erase this data to boot from a sd card.

  Retrorangepi 3.0.1 critital Crash
Posted by: Darcklinking - 07-29-2017, 07:18 PM - Forum: Solved threads (also check FAQ and HOWTOs) - Replies (1)

Hi everyone

I have download the lates version (3.0.1) from the oficial web (http://www.retrorangepi.org) for my Orangepi plus 2e.

The first thing I have done is open Armbian and execute apt-get update and apt-get upgrade as root.

All is ok but 6 packages no upgraded. I reboot and execute apt-get dist-upgrade. All is ok but 2 packages no upgraded. I reboot and execute aptitude full-upgrade. All the packages are upgraded now.

Aparently everything is ok and I can continue configuring the Armbian but when I try to reboot the sistem nevermore works. The Orange pi is on but the sistem doesn´t run, the screen has no signal and I can´t do anything.

Before reboot the sistem I tryed to open retropi from the Armbian Desktop and it works.

Does exist any solution for this problem or the only one is never execute aptitude full-upgrade?

Thanks for your help
