ROPI 4.2 FULL Desktop start failed
ROPI 4.2 FULL Desktop start failed. Only black screen and after few minutes back to emulation station.
image: ROPI Zero PAL.
It's probably permissions.Try 'sudo chown -R pi:pi /home/pi/'

Yep that helped thx.
Now desktop starts but screen resolution is bounded to 644x544 is it normal for PAL AV mode ?
Is it possible to change resolution to 1280x1024 ?
board : Orange PI Zero.
monitor/TV : 1280x1024.
Those PAL settings were achieved after user report. I think Analog output will limit you to 720x480.
For custom settings, i think this tutorial will help you: .
It's possible to tweak the fb_width and fb_height values. Make sure to have a backup of following files before attempting changes:
/boot/bin/orangepizero.bin and
/boot/script.bin (symbolic link)
default resolution for TV Out is :

640x480 60Hz for NTSC

720x576 50Hz for PAL
There was too much overscan with default PAL/NTSC resolution.
