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.

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.

Thanks for anserws. I wait for modified uImage When can we expect it (approximately, it is important for you)? But I need only boot from /dev/sdb1, it is possible make it fast? I know you are a lot of work

Maybe today, if testing goes well.
I'll include also the script to install Linux to USB HD (similar to install_to_emmc).

@loboris : I have tested your's new mini images - jessie and vivid - There are some problems with kernel, first I am getting gmac error and ethernet does not work, second if reboot or poweroff command is issued you will get kernel panic message.

We have succesfully compiled kernel on Debian Jessie X86_64 and Ubuntu Vivid x86_64. It is necessary to add i386 architecture support to compile it from SDK with loboris scripts and install toolchain acording to H3 manual build documentation.

@loboris : Why have you deleted lechee.tar.gz from mega? Is it still neccesary or not?

I do not understand some of menuconfig options, what is soc camera support. I built these modules but i can not load it neither with modprobe nor insmod. It says no such file or directory. What is the difference between these modules and modules from vfe_sunxi subdirectory?

I will try to play with script.fex acording to instructions from orangepi v1, but I am still not sure what drivers should be loaded to get CSI Camera working.

For now i am not able to use OV5640 CSI Camera
