Received my orange pi pc and I have tried every available OS build. None of the builds provides a working ethernet. All of them have the same issue in dmesg

PHYID 0000FFFF ....
gmac0: eth0: Initialize hardware error

Addtionally , no mouse works either. I am only able to get working keyboard and hdmi.

Has anyone tested any orange pi pc successfully with any os?

I have tried
Ubuntu 15.04 with Mate Desktop
Lubuntu 15.04 with LXDE/Lubuntu Desktop
Debian 8 with XFCE Desktop
Debian wheezy

Debian Jessie
Lubuntu Vivid
Ubuntu Mate


Also , the Lubuntu download requires a Baidu account which requires a Chinese cell carrier, no working link for google drive US users.

I've tested OPI PC with my images and all 3 USB host ports & OTG port works.
You have to use the right (and latest) script.bin & uImage for the board.

Tested with wireless USB keyboard/mouse, USB HD/Flash drive, USB to serial adapter ...

Ethernet works too.

Ethernet worked fine for me on Ubuntu Mate and Debian.  However, only one of my USB ports work.  Based on other forum posts, I'm guessing the manufacturing quality is not satisfactory and many of us have boards with hardware issue.

I have the same issue in dmesg: "gmac0: eth0: Initialize hardware error" and my ethernet port on Orange Pi PC does not work with any Linux distros.

Hello

We have the same issue. There's only one usb port working at the time on usb_bus.
Everything is working on old version of oficial lubuntu 14.04.

Thanks Loboris,

I think I understand now.. So the images downloaded from the actual website do not function properly. Your images and instructions however do because of an extra step specific to the board.

@loboris I used you Debian 8 Jessie image and I follow the steps but still only one port is working. I used a powered USB hub and all worked but only on one port of the OPi PC. Could that be kernel?

Same here:  ethernet does not work, and there is only one working USB port on my OrangePi PC.
I tried OrangePI_Jessie_Xfce.img provided by loboris, and followed all instructions about uImage and script.bin .
This is frustrating...
