  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

Posted by: eltecho_yqr - 07-24-2017, 10:34 PM - Forum: Debian - No Replies

I would like some guidance..
I am using a Orange pi pc2  1G ram  H5 chip
I have the unit running as follows:
1. use etcher to create image  
     image file used  Debian_Desktop_jessie_xfce4_PC2_V0_9_2.img.xz        672.9Mb
unit boots up fine
2. open a terminal    run   apt-get update
                   next run        apt-get upgrade
                   next run        apt-get ntp
                                        service ntp start 
the time in the clock should now be synced to time server and be current  ( I could not get any web browser to work until time was updated)

3 next I added synaptic   ( I like the software)
    open a terminal  and      apt-get install synaptic

now that the basics are present

4.  from applications menu  >> system  >>  synaptic
    the is the gui to add packages  I next added       gparted 
     the next piece of software added is                    iceweasel

5  gparted is now in the system group and can be used to resize the partitions
mine are as follows after expanding the ext4 partition (I am using a 16G sd card)
       /dev/mmcblk0p1    fat16   /boot     50.00Mib
       /dev/mmcblk0p2    ext4    /            14.5G

Now I have a responsive system with web browsing
I am using a hdmi monitor

1 I loaded kodi Jarvis but it was extremely sluggish and unusable... is there a solution?
2. I have very low sound on the audio jack .
  I do have a hdmi selection in my audio mixer    sndhdmi(alsa mixer)
     hdmi audio format   is set to pcm
    I have tried with sunxi daudio hub both enabled and disabled

 can I get sound out on the hdmi ?

thanks in advance

  Best board choice ?
Posted by: Schmurtz - 07-23-2017, 02:19 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

I know, in most of the case there is not only one answer to this question.
But like many people I have some questions in mind before starting emulation with Orange PI boards. 
These questions will help me to choose the right board for my uses.

  1. Which card do you recommend ?
  2. What is the fastest one ? What is the cheapest one ?
  3. Will the H5 boards be faster (when RetrOange will be compatible) ?
  4. All the H3 boards has the same CPU speed ?

  5. Is there emulators performance differences between cards based on 1GB and 512MB ?
  6. Orange PI Zero is based on H2+ I suppose that it is weak for emulators like N64 ?
  7. Orange Pi Zero Plus (based on H3) is compatible with the 3.0.1 ?

  8. Is is a good idea to put the RetrOrange image on the eMMC memory that we can find on some orange cards ?
  9. Is there somewhere a comparative between Raspberry 3 emulation speed and Orange PI  boards ?

Thanks for your answer and your awesome work on this distrib Smile

Some questions about H5 boards (Orange Pi PC 2 & Orange Pi Zero Plus 2) :

  1. Can it work with the current release 3.0.1 (someone tried ?)
  2. Are you gonna update RetrOrange for H5 boards  ?
  3. If yes, can we expect better performances in the future with these boards ?
Thank you Smile
