I was on short vacation, sorry for not answering the questions.

@Sitheek I hope I'll receive my camera soon, so it is not necessary to send me one (thanks for the offer). I'm quite bussy with my work next week and I don't think I'll be able to spend much time on it anyway.

@camh  I'll upload config and other changes I've made to the kernel next week.

@magicse I've made no changes to video drivers (tv.ko)

@derrickyee81 I've never tested AP mode, I'll test it when I find some time.

@joole_s  All USB (host&otg) ports works on OPI-PC, you have to copy script.bin.OPI-PC_xxxx to script.bin
I have only one problem on OPI-PC (related to USB), my wireless keyboard/mouse works only in bottom horizontal USB connector. I'll look into this problem later.
The drivers for RTL8192cu & RTP8188cu are present in scriptbin_kernel.tar.gz

@Vladimir55 I'll test audio on 3.5mm connector when I find some more time.

@Loboris: is getting the Mali GPU working on your radar? For some reason it's a burden to get this running on the OPI. I own another A20 board (pcduino) where the Mali acceleration actually works in Linux. However, I get all kinds of errors when compiling on my OPI+.  I have tried all guides and tips / tricks I could find via Google, but I am out of options.

Maybe you have a clue what's the issue?

There is an interesting review of the OPI boards with Debian Jessie XFCE image on CNXSoft (and video).

It requires much more time than I have. I had some success (I've compiled the drivers), but it still don't work. I was hoping Steven will release the working solution.
I'll return to it maybe next month, I don't think that using Linux as media player on such boards is their intended purpose.

I have only one problem on OPI-PC (related to USB), my wireless keyboard/mouse works only in bottom horizontal USB connector.


I have same problem.
my OPI-PC can use bottom horizontal USB only, any USB device.

I tried to copy script.bin.OPI-PC_* to script.bin.(already try 1080p50, 1080p60, 720p50, 720p60...all failed)

Tested AP mode, works good using create_ap method.

Before using, install some packages:
  1. sudo apt-get install git iptables dnsmasq util-linux procps hostapd iproute2 iw haveged
Copy code
If you don't want to install git, just download create_ap-master.zip from git or my Mega or GoogleDrive and unpack.

Then run
  1. git clone https://github.com/oblique/create_ap
  2. cd create_ap
  3. sudo make install
Copy code

After that you can use
  1. sudo create_ap --ieee80211n --ht_capab '[HT40+]' wlan0 eth0 MyAccessPoint MyPassPhrase &
Copy code
to start AP

See Examples on git page about how to start AP on boot.

Tested on OPI-PLUS, Ubuntu image, connecting from Android and Windows 10.

Kernel update

  • NFS version 3&4 wasn't enabled in nfs kernel driver. Fixed.
  • Only bottom horizontal USB connector could detect USB 1.0 devices (like keyboard and mouse) on OPI-PC. Fixed.



You can download the updated scriptbin_kernel.tar.gz or scriptbin_kernel.tar.gz from Mega or GoogleDrive.
