  Orange Pi Zero image - beta testing
Posted by: alexkidd - 01-30-2018, 12:39 PM - Forum: DEVELOPMENT - Replies (65)

Hello guys,

Orange Pi Zero image is here. Still beta, still has a couple of bugs. Unfortunately we couldnt find spare time to implement all fixes into the image, so a hotfix script was included instead. After flashing the image, boot the sdcard and wait a couple of minutes for it to expand filesystem. Dont mind the user prompt in the first boot, it will reboot automatically shortly afterwards. 

Before downloading/installing files or running options from RetroPie/RetrOrangePi menus, press Start, select the Desktop option, run the Wifi Config if needed, then run the hotfix from terminal:

Code:
pi@RetrOrangePi:~$ /boot/FixOpiZero.sh
The script will try to fix the DNS bug we're still having and install system dependencies.

As featured in v4, overscan can be fixed from our menu Retropie - RetrOrangePi - Audio/Video Selector). You can choose NTSC or PAL systems. If you have any trouble running from EmulationStation, run the script from terminal as well:

Code:
pi@RetrOrangePi:~$ /home/pi/RetrOrangePi/BashTool_ROPI_RCA/Tool/run.sh
This should be enough to get you a good system to play with. Apparently it’s more stable than v3. At least, the kernel panic seems to be gone. Big Grin

Please report any bugs, we’ll fix them before releasing the final v4.2 version.

  OPANGEPI PC ROPI 4.1 gamepad problem
Posted by: unrw@mail.ru - 01-30-2018, 06:14 AM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (2)

I have OPANGEPI PC and installed ROPI 4.1 from http://www.retrorangepi.org/download/

Problem with gamepad
Gamepad is configured but in games dont work START button, reconfigurantion did not help. While in configuration process START is detected but in any games START does not work.

And second question: I have second gamepad but it like SNES gamepad whith only one left and right shoulder and it is impossible to configure it because not configuration requies much more buttons. It fine worked on ROPI 3. How to config such "small" gamepads on ROPI 4 ?

Bug [DRIVER BUG] [RetrOrangepi v4.1] Wifi Very Inconsistent
Posted by: evert7877 - 01-28-2018, 08:17 PM - Forum: HARDWARE DISCUSSION - Replies (1)

Hi, 


I use the Orange Pi PC with a Wifi Dongle: TP-LINK TL-WN725N
With a freshly installed image of RetrOrangePi-4.1.Orangepipc.img on a 8gb miniSD card I let Retrorange pi boot and go to Desktop to configure Wifi because the RETROPIE-SETUP wifi program don't let me connect.

Anyway, when I am at the RetrOrange Pi desktop I click on the right top button and click on my home WiFi... 
Huh? two Wifi interfaces on one dongle? hm... strange ohh well beter pick one. *enters wifi password "Connection Established"

Let's go to Root Terminal and check: ping 8.8.8.8
bingo, internet so everything should be fine. I back out of Desktop en inside the Emulator Station to "Update RetroPie-Setup script"... unable to fetch script?! Wierd because in desktop I can ping google.

Well let's try the "Configururation / tools to connect to the Wifi... Connect to Wifi network <ok> Select WiFi <ok> Enter Password <ok> ... it takes over a minute to start connecting ... *Connecting... And it take a axtra minute to tell me "Unable to connect to network Chateau van Ingen"

So let's go back to Desktop and check Ifconfig and /etc/network/interfaces:
When I arrive to Desktop it quickly connects to the WiFi... as if it's sneaky about connecting [Image: tongue.png]

Ok Check sudo ping 8.8.8.8
From 169.154.7.242 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable 
this happens 40 times and then 8.8.8.8 is reachable  [Image: confused.png]

Right... Ifconfig

Hm, let's do a reboot and check if I can see my IP in "Show IP" in the RetrOrange Pi menu. No IP address...
[Image: 1z39v6s.jpg]
When I got back to desktop it's connected with Wifi but no internet. And it didn't come back either.

I had my internet back when I disconnect eth0. I always have to disconnect eth0. (no cable attached)
So now if I go back to Emulator Station and check "Show IP" in the RetroPie settings menu I have a IP adres.

Now on reboot I checked my ip again with "Show IP"... no ip, arrived at desktop... not connected... This is getting old!
Why is my Wifi not automatically connecting? for weeks I have these inconsistent things that annoy the hell out of me.

Right, so top right corner click on connection icon and reconnects to wifi "Chateau van Ingen" I don't know why but somehow it forgot the password to the WiFi. 
*Sight Sudo ping 8.8.8.8: destination Host Unreachable... *Disconnects eth0... 8.8.8.8 is reachable again.

Why is this a thing... It's driving me mad.

Let's add # to the eth0 part in /etc/network/interfaces
# Wired adapter #1
#allow-hotplug eth0
#no-auto-down eth0
#iface eth0 inet dhcp
#address 192.168.0.100
#netmask 255.255.255.0
#gateway 192.168.0.1
#dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4
#       hwaddress ether # if you want to set MAC manually
#       pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 mtu 3838 # setting MTU for DHCP, static just: mtu 3838

sudo reboot

Let's see if I have a Ip on boot to RetroOrange Pie... 
*Tries to navigate to RetroOrange Pi menu *Get's Segmentation fault error due to (usb attached) PS3 driver bug *Facepalm
*Sigh, reboot and try again. (usb attached) PS3 controller is causing system freezes when in retrorange pi menu. *Sigh, reboot and try again.
The controller disconnects automatically with random delay. 

Still no IP in "Show IP" on boot.

This is what it states:
[Image: j0cnx3.jpg]

*Sight, I am going to reinstall and try again with a fresh image. Use a Ethernet cable for the internet en update the setup scrip, install ps3 controller driver from source and try to get the WiFi to work as it should. CONNECT ON BOOT ! [Image: angry.png]

I tried connecting to my home Wifi and then tried the fix below
Quote:in the interfaces file, uncomment (remove initial #) from the following lines:
#allow-hotplug wlan0
#iface wlan0 inet dhcp
#dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4

save/close file and run:
=> sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

If it still fails, try:

wget http://149.202.0.61/interfaces
sudo mv interfaces /etc/network/
sudo reboot
After boot still no IP, it doesn't want to auto connect on boot Sad 



I'll keep editing this Topic for updates as I go along and try things and to keep track what I have tried and for the people who also may have these issues.  So this states my problem, how can I make it so that I don't need to go to desktop every time to disconnect eth0 and enjoy wireless internet?


Thank you  [Image: blush.png]

  Migration from 16gb to 32gb with the full size filesystem
Posted by: Himyorange - 01-26-2018, 04:02 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Hi,
It's a question about the filesystem expanding. I use the "orange pi pc" for a long while with 16gb micro sd card. Currently, I found the space it's not enough. I consider to use "dd" to make a backup and "dd" to make this backup to 32 gb card. I think it is possible. I had been trying on "raspberry pi" to migrate from smaller card to the bigger card. 

After migration, it seems a way to implement a command for getting the full size filesystem. (raspberry pi)

Please give me an instrument about this matter. Thanks. Smile Smile

I've just installed RetrOrangePi on my Orange Pi Plus2 H3 and noted that it is based on Armbian Debian Jessie with Desktop. However on Armbian website there is only debian jessie Server. Is there any place where I can find the Armbian OS with Deb Jessie Desktop, or may I assume that it was used the server version and installed the desktop?
