If you are with WPA pass, try to change /etc/network/interfaces like this:
  1. allow-hotplug wlan0
  2. auto wlan0
  3. iface wlan0 inet dhcp
  4. wpa-ssid "your_ssid"
  5. wpa-psk "your_keypass"
Copy the Code

I've edited with wlan0

And for an automatically connection, you can use a graphical app:
  1. sudo apt-get install wicd
Copy the Code

then you click on 'setting' and you set wlan0

Ok. All working on kernel builded from sources: https://github.com/dan-and/linux-sunxi. The gpio ports are on another location but it works. Now I'm trying to add hw acceleration for full working desktop. I'm using sources more linux-sunxi friendly, because I want my image to be more uniwersal.

This depo don't work with me, only this one: https://github.com/silentcreek/bananapi-kernel

Anyway, if you can write a tuto for the GPU it should be great!

I've working build system for debian packeges (I've used this on cubieboard before CPU dead). Theoretically I should have full working Debian Jessy tommorow

EDIT:
I don't know why banana pi patches aren't merged into linux-sunxi.

This did not work for me.
I could export gpio89, but I can't write a value to it.

[root@localhost gpio89]# echo "out" > direction                                                                                                                                             
bash: echo: write error: Unknown error 517

Value remains "in"
I tried out with and without quotes.
This is the 3.17.8  from Fedora core 21
You can also reach me on freenode irc, channel #orangepi username eFfeM

The 3.17 doesn't fully support our SOC. I've no clue where is the problem. For full support for Allwinner A20 You should use banana pi/linux-sunxi 3.4 kernel.

I have found one dirty workaround which is little better. It's done inside fex so you bootup with Wireless.

  1. [leds_para]
  2. leds_used = 0
  3. leds_num = 1
  4. leds_pin_1 = port:PH22<1><default><default><0>
  5. leds_name_1 = "green:ph24:led1"
  6. leds_default_1 = 1
  7. leds_trigger_1 = "default-on"
Copy the Code
