  Strange Error messages - help understanding them
Posted by: duke2k7 - 08-20-2017, 10:55 AM - Forum: Support area - Replies (2)

Hey guys,

Me again (I must have done about 4 threads already and I only joined an hour ago lol)
Please see the images that i have attached, these are the errors I am getting on various updates. Am I right in guessing this is why some emus wont run even with the BIOS file in place?

  Sega MasterSystem & Megadrive Emu

Is there any specific reason that the MasterSystem emu wont run 'as-is'? Ive loaded the roms into the correct folders but once you select the rom and start, it fades back into the rom selection menu.

  RetroEngine Sigma - Im trying to fix Doyodo's screwup
Posted by: duke2k7 - 08-20-2017, 10:18 AM - Forum: Solved threads (also check FAQ and HOWTOs) - Replies (1)

Hey guys,

Firstly, thanks for allowing me to join the forum.

I was having some issues using Doyodo's badly patched RetrOrangePi so I downloaded my own but there seems to be some issues that I need a little help with.

I can find my way around the system using SSH, but I have encountered some snags, namely:

1. I get the 'fatal: could not read Username for 'https://github.com' error saying there is no username or password
2. When I try to apt-get to upgrade/update some seems okay, but then when I try to update the packages it fails, every time
3. I cannot use Stephen Selph's scraper as it keeps telling me it isnt there.
4. Does anyone have the script to use the 'p1/p2' buttons on the RetroEngine Sigma unit with RetrOrangePi?

Could a few of you point me in the right direction please?

Im so disappointed with the whole RetroEngine Sigma experience but Im happy I have discovered Orange Pi as I was - up to this point - a very faithful Raspberry Pi user but I do lik this hardware much more.

Thanks a lot guys, Im looking forward to learning much and being a contributor to the forum

  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 (5)

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.

  Orange pi pc pluss problem
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.
