Hi,

I am using  Orange Pi One. but when I display the load using the "w" command the output always 2,xx. When I use the "top" command I don't see much load. I have a raspberry pi 2 running the same programs. The load on Raspberry Pi 2 is 0.2x something when I use "top" I see that the CPU load is comparable only with higher cpu usage. But this is normal giwen Raspberry has a a slower processor. Can it be some kind of divisor problem or something. I believe the load must be ten times less soch as 0.2x as the Raspberry displays. I believe the Raspbian implementation in Orange Pi is very buggy being adapted from BananaPi. This must be one of such problems.

Here are excertps from the "top" command with load by CPU diplay on from both systems:

Orange Pi One:

I did compile my own FEX so I don't have this ARISC problem anymore. Anyway my dmesg output is:
root@opi01:~# dmesg |grep ARISC
[    0.080365] [ARISC] :sunxi-arisc driver v1.04
[    0.091851] [ARISC] :arisc version: [v0.1.34]
[    0.172701] [ARISC] :sunxi-arisc driver v1.04 startup succeeded



May be you're right about stuck processes. This is when there's nothing runs. just the shell.

I have my reasons to use Raspbian. I am trying to migrate some software form raspberry to Orange Pi One. It must be debian based.

I do understand but you should try to loose that "teaching guy" attitude. Very unpleasant indeed. What I say is although I was not running any process and there was only kernel processes. I saw two processes stucked in D state. This was it. This is why I've posted the output with a line reading "May be you're right about stuck processes. This is when there's nothing runs. just the shell.". I hope you've got that I've got it now ?

Oh thanks for the help so far. I turely  do appreciate this part. However it seems to me that you can't keep yourself from repeating "you don't understand" ten times in a row when helping us clueless "morons". Good Luck with that too.
