Hello,

i want to use the I2C interface on the H5 board PC 2.
But i have to find out that the I2C drivers are not part of the image.
So this cannot be used and I2C is dead.

Where i can i get the missing drivers for your kernel 3.10.65 ?

I already tried to install the original kernel 3.16.0-4-arm64 of the Jessie-Distribution, but it does not boot.

I am using Debian Desktop (updated:2017-05-12).

I tried today Raspbian Desktop (updated:2018-02-07), but it has the same kernel with the same missing drivers.

Hi,

Yes - this is really a great step to a working Debian Distribution.

It seems everything is working like a charm:
  • Info output at booting
  • Easy configuration and upgrade with armbian-config
  • Different screen resolutions including Full HD
  • I2C Hardware support
  • etc.

This should be the standard for the OrangePi downloads ...
