I say that it seems quick because it *IS* quick when you consider what the software developers are doing to make this stuff work.  See, Allwinner isn't really providing..... anything at all for them to work from.  The fact that they ever get these processors mainlined is a feat in and of itself.

Hi all.
I have two Orange PI PC Boards that i buyed two weeks ago and i am struggling since then to ...

Do you mean you can't boot into u-boot or Linux?

I have opi-pc and can boot into latest u-boot and Linux. U-boot is latest git, compile with orangepi_pc_defconfig, then put the u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin to sd card offset 8k and it boots fine.

For Linux kernel, I use
I use arch/arm/configs/sunxi_defconfig to compile following all the instructions here https://linux-sunxi.org/Mainline_U-boot, it boots fine.


My problem is that after booting into Linux, there is no ethernet device. dmesg doesn't show anything either.

I am still using Allwinner's u-boot. Did you try my patches (http://moinejf.free.fr/opi2/) with the last u-boot?
(sorry, there is no ethernet, no audio and no wifi on OPI2 yet).

No I didn't. What more does your patch has than Hans de Goede's wip branch?

I think just video: the HDMI driver cannot go to the mainline.

Is network supposed to work (on orange pi pc) with Hans de Goede's repository?

I don't know about ethernet: my OPI2 is too far from my ISP's box and I must use wifi.
There is no driver for the rtl8189 chip of the OPI2. I started to develop one.

Just tried the latest mainline u-boot and kernel (Hans') on my Orange Pi Plus.
Boots, the 4 cores come up and usb works. However no ethernet, no eMMC and CPU frequency very low (couldn't get a reading but calibrated at 48 bogomips per core).
