Hi,

I've just checked the first post in this thread and the only link is <https://mega.co.nz/#F!09cD2LhZ!xnhXgvAQk4tojR6bRyDFqA> which just returns an apparently blank page.  I was hoping to get a list of downloadable images.  Is there a better link that I'm missing ?

Cheers,
Steven

There are 2 subfolders on that page, and you have to select "linux" subfolder. I've updated the link in the 1st post, and it now points directly to the OrangePI Linux images. Please try again.

Hi,

The only link I see in the first post is <https://mega.nz/#F!wh8l2BjK!OBep3nMldBletvNNwkH2Jg>.

Are there other links in this post that I'm missing ?  My browser is identifying as "Mozilla/5.0".  There is some Javascript in the reply that could be affected by my user-agent string.

The reply I get is shown below (hopefully the HTML will be retained in this post).  Everything is "display:none" which doesn't seem right to me.

I'll try access using another browser.

Cheers,
Steven

Hi loboris,

Update to my last post.  I've just tried the link using Opera 8 (Win XP) and still get the apparently blank page.

mega.co.nz resolves to 154.53.224.146, mega.nz resolves to 154.53.224.162, are these correct ?

Update again: The page works with Firefox 40.0.2 (Win XP).  Doesn't work with IceWeasel 31.8 (latest for wheezy).

I'm now downloading the debian image.  Thanks.

Cheers,
Steven

I'll try to upload the images to another server.

I've just discovered that wheezy and trusty images are not working with the included kernels.
I'm sorry about that, I'll  try to fix it as soon as possible.
For now please use the jessie and vivid images.

Which one should OPI-PC users download? OrangePI_Lubuntu_Vivid.img.xz? Does lib_mali_r4p0_DDK implemented with your release?

OPI-PC users can download any of the available images.
After writing the image to the SD Card copy uImage_OPI-2 to uImage and script.bin.OPI-PC_resolution to script.bin.
<distro_rel>_mini.img                         are base images without desktop
OrangePI_Ubuntu_Vivid_Mate.img    Ubuntu 15.04 with Mate Desktop
OrangePI_Lubuntu_Vivid.img             Lubuntu 15.04 with LXDE/Lubuntu Desktop
OrangePI_Debian_Jessie.img            Debian 8.1 with XFCE Desktop (will be uploaded later today)

Mali drivers are not yet implemented, but this does not affect desktop performance anyway.
They are needed only for accelerated video playback in Kodi, and eventually for some gpu acceleration in Chromium.
They be added later, after testing.

Thanks @laboris for your hard work  I have question, what about XFCE? Do you create dedicated imag ...

The uploaded desktop images are base image (mini) + desktop (installed with install_xxx_desktop script) + some manual tweaking.
You can easily create any combination of base image + desktop.
About XFCE, I'll upload Debian Jessie XFCE image later.

Linux root fs can be created on external USB HD.
You can use create_image script to create Linux root fs in local directory (image_name="") and then copy (with rsync) to USB HD partition.
Or you can copy Linux partition from SD Card to external USB HD.
  1. sudo rsync -r -t -p -o -g -x --delete -l -H -D --numeric-ids -s --stats <linux_root_directory>/ <mounted_usbhd_partition>/
Copy code
You must have botable sd card inserted (possibly the small one, with only fat partition), and uImage prepared to boot from USB HD.

I'm working on uImage version which will be able to detect the presence of Linux root fs on any partition on external USB HD (or flash drive) and boot from it automatically.
That way you'll be able to have two different Linux installation, one on SD Card and one on USB HD, and boot to USB one if inserted.
