    Is it booted from SD or NAND?

    I have seen this link. However, after cloning NAND to SD and restarting, my result of 'df -h' is different from both photos in the tutorial (my output is here). I think that my pcDuino booted from SD. I have two reasons. First one is that /dev/mmcblk0p1 is listed on the output of 'df -h'. Other reason is that when I run board-config.sh, I have no option to clone my system to SD card anymore. However, I would like to hear your opinion, is it booted from SD or NAND? Also, why the output I have is different from both outputs in the tutorial?
  2. Hi everyone, I purchased a pcDuino4 Nano a while ago to see how it compared to the Raspberry Pi and find a small form factor I could use to setup a computing cluster to crunch BOINC projects. So I purchased this one based on all the advertisements that say it works with Ubuntu, Debian and other OS's, but where are they? The standard Ubuntu Mate image doesn't boot, Debian Jessie doesn't boot. The only image that boots is the one from Linksprite and with that image I am unable to get the Ethernet port to work anyway shape or form. I have tried the instructions from their site. I have tried the default methods for Debian and nothing. The best I can do is ping local host with a 4001ms response time. Where can I get a working Ubuntu version for this thing? Heck any image that works except for that image on Linksprite which is so modified I dunno what it is trying to do. I kinda feel like I got scammed of $25 bucks which I know isn't a lot but I was really hoping these things worked. Any help would be appreciate, if I can get the NIC working that would be fine, though trashing the desktop on boot making it a headless version would also be nice.
  3. We set up a new New packages repository for pcduino. Please modify /etc/apt/sources.list As to pcDuino8 Uno, add the following line: deb http://ubuntu.pcduino.com/pcduino8/ pcduino main As to pcDuino3/2/1, add the following lines: deb http://ubuntu.pcduino.com/pcduino3/ pcduino main deb-src http://ubuntu.pcduino.com/pcduino3/ pcduino main After that, update system: sudo apt-get update If you have any problem, please tell me via Email: qi.yao # linksprite.com

    Ubuntu headless server distrib

    Hi all, I am new on pcDuino8 but i did some tricks on RPi and I have been impressed by pcDuino8 Uno specification, so I bought one to have a look on it. When dealing with single board computers I use to install headless server distrib but I haven't been able to find one for pcDuino8. And I don't like the approach to downgrade a system from desktop to server, as I like fresh and clean install before starting to work on it. Can you tell me why a headless distro is not available ? It seems to me that it is the foundation of a desktop distrib ? But there may be a reason for this I do not see.
  5. Popular ARM Linux distribution is expanding support to Linksprite boards. What is Armbian? Debian Wheezy, Jessie or Ubuntu Trusty based distribution specialized for ARM developing boards. Dedicated repository with own kernel development (apt.armbian.com) and full or manual automated updating. Open development on Github Vibrant support community. Reference: Cubieboard image, since 12/2013 Can I run it on Linksprite boards? Currently only pcDuino3 nano is supported but we are planning to expand board base in the future. If you are skilled, you can adopt this base and use it on other boards. http://www.armbian.com/pcduino3/ http://www.armbian.com/pcduino3nano/ http://www.armbian.com/pcduino2/ There are two main kernel options: Vanilla kernel Kernel 4.7.3 with large hardware support, headers and some firmware included Docker ready Bluetooth ready (working with supported external keys) Bugs or limitation No on board audio support (comming soon) or IR driver, no HW accelerated video Legacy kernel Kernel 3.4.112 with large hardware support, headers and some firmware included Enabled audio devices: analog, HDMI, spdif and I2S (if wired and enabled in HW configuration) IR functional and preconfigured – tested with LG remote IR transmit driver Bluetooth ready (working with supported external keys) I2C ready and tested with small 16×2 LCD. Basic i2c tools included. SPI ready and tested with ILI9341 based 2.4″ TFT LCD display. Drivers for small TFT LCD display modules. Clustering / stacking USB redirector – for sharing USB over TCP/IP (disabled by default /etc/init.d/rc.usbsrvd) Onboard LED attached to SD card activity (script.bin) Bugs or limitation NAND install script sometime fails. Dirty but working workaround: install Lubuntu to NAND with Phoenix tools and run the nand-install again. Shutdown results into reboot under certain conditions. Due to bad PCB placement, there is some crosstalk between Wifi and VGA in certain videomodes (Cubietruck) MALI driver fails to compile Base features: Debian Wheezy, Jessie or Ubuntu Trusty based. Compiled from scratch Root password is 1234. You will be prompted to change this password at first login First boot takes longer (around 3min) than usual (20s) because it updates package list, regenerates SSH keys and expand partition to fit your SD card. It will reboot one time automatically. Second boot also take little longer (around 3min) because it creates 128MB emergency swap space Ready to compile external modules. Tested with this wireless adapter Ethernet adapter with DHCP and SSH server ready on default port (22) Wireless adapter with DHCP ready if present but disabled (/etc/network/interfaces, WPA2: normal connect or AP mode) desktop environment upgrade ready NAND, SATA and USB install script included (/root) Serial console enabled Enabled automatic security update download for basic system and kernel. Upgrades are done via standard apt-get upgrade method Login script shows board name MOTD with current PMU temp, hard drive temp, ambient temp from Temper if exits, actual free memory & battery conditions. Performance tweaks: /tmp & /log = RAM, ramlog app saves logs to disk daily and on shut-down (Wheezy only) automatic IO scheduler. (check /etc/init.d/armhwinfo) journal data writeback enabled. (/etc/fstab) commit=600 to flush data to the disk every 10 minutes (/etc/fstab) optimized CPU frequency scaling 480-1010Mhz with interactive governor (/etc/init.d/cpufrequtils) eth0 interrupts are using dedicated core Build your own kernel or image with Armbian build tool.
  6. I just unpacked two new PCDuino Nano's and wanted to update the OS. I have 3 others which I did last year and (after some tinkering at the time) works fine. I used what I think was the same images as before, ie (pcduino3_nano_a20_kernel_livesuit_20141205.img), and initially it seemed to work - it came to the point where the two LED's #3 & #4 have following status during boot: LED3 = steady and LED4 = flashing slowly, which I believe means kernel loaded fine, awaiting to load Ubuntu. However, I seem to be unable to get beyond this, having either both LEDS flashing simultaneously, or alternating. I suspect that the Ubuntu images are not loading correctly, but I cannot tell why. On the Linksprite page with images for the Nano, I find several , but the explanations to which are which is somewhat vague, and I also dont see the ones I used in the past anymore, so I take it they are now obsolete. The guidelines to flashing the OS are also somewhat outdated, mostly for PCDuino 2 and 3 , and not so much cover the Nano, so I am not sure if there are any differences. I see also now several "LiveSuite" images. How is one suppose to use these ? Any comments to more up to date guidelines will be appreciated. Rgds DD

    pcduino windows.

    So I know that with the Raspberry Pi's you can partition the OS systems and install windows as the second partition. I was hoping to do that with my pcduino but I've been searching for hours and I can't find any answers. I was hoping that someone on this fourm would have some insight into what I can do. Is it possible to partition my pcduino? If not, would I be able to just re-image the entire thing and load up windows on its own? Any help on this matter would be much appreciated
  8. The OS on the build page for Acadia is very old and unsupported. How do we build a new OS (Linaro Ubuntu 14) for Acadia. I tried to do a Upgrade and it installed, but the drivers were lost.

    Snappy Wifi

    There doesn't seem to be a driver for the wifi in Ubuntu Snappy. Is this the case? If so, will it be available anytime soon? thx, tom.
  10. What is the difference between between win32diskimgwrite and PhoenixSuite method while burning OS image on the pcDuino?
  11. How to reflash (flash) pcDuino? How to (re)install Ubuntu and kernel on pcDuino (permanently, into NAND)?
  12. I am trying to burn the Lubuntu 14 NAND image using Ubuntu with dd method. I manage to burn it successfully. After I install it (led is blinking some time and stops), it does not want to boot. Did anyone managed to install Lubuntu 14 using dd method? I am entering these commands in terminal: sudo dd if=imagelocation of=microSDlocation bs=1M My microSD card is Transcend 16GB. I manage to install Ubuntu 12 using dd and Lubuntu 14 using Windows, so the memory card looks fine.
  13. Hi there, has anyone built a docker image, to build and run nodejs apps on the PCDUino V3? Thanks
  14. When we are burning operating system or kernel images using Linux we can use dd command. What does bb stand for in that command?

    snappy ubuntu release

    Anybody try the new Snappy for pcDuino3? I flashed it, but I can't really tell what's happening other than the lights flashing briefly. I doesn't seem to be running the ethernet over USB-OTG as I get no sign of it in my Windows network settings. I have no HDMI monitor. Has anybody tried installing it and has any feedback about it? Edit - also there is no information about what the file actually is. I'm not sure if it's a bootable SD or a production SD to flash NAND.
  16. Hi all, I am trying to build this patch https://github.com/ravelox/pimidi in pcDuino2. What I am tryig to achieve is taking info from arduino IIC and sending it like midi notes throw RTPmidi. It was very easy on my ubuntu 14.04 laptop, but here I am facing a problem. I can not see any problems when building, but when try ./raveloxmidi -> [1422088320] ERROR: Failed to create client: Daemon not running [1422088320] ERROR: Unable to create publish thread *** glibc detected *** ./raveloxmidi: double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x016c8890 *** I am not a programmer, can anyone help me? Thanks in advance! pcDuino v2, lastest ubuntu and kernel from this site

    using ubuntu 14 nand image

    I downloaded and installed the Ubuntu 14 nand flash image that is available for download. It immediately fixed some crashes and video failures that I was experiencing. So of course, I'm really happy using it. But there are now some things I don't know how to do. - I cloned the nand image to a bootable SD card. But I don't seem to have the full 16G on the card, just the same size as the nand flash. How can I create a bootable SD of the new release that uses the entire cards memory? - The Arduino IDE is missing. On the download page it says that only command line tools are available. Well, that's fine. I usually use VIM and command line GCC instead of an IDE anyway (and makefiles for larger projects). But where are the tools and libraries? I searched with apt and installed arduino-core, but I'm not sure if it's the right package or how to use it. I saw that the IDE came with a lot of PCduino-specific examples and modules, I will need those to move forward with development. In particular, I need libraries to drive hardware interfaces such as Arduino shields. I design hardware, so I will want to study the code and adapt it to my projects.
  18. It seems the file in wiimu corrupted. I failed to get this file "http://www.wiimu.com:8020/pcduino/dists/pcduino/main/binary-armhf/pcduino-xbmc_0.3_armhf.deb" by using wget, download manager, flashget, etc. The file transfer always failed at about 4Mb of data. Has anyone got the same problem like me?

    update and upgrade issues

    I updated, upgraded and turned on wifi on my PCDuino3. Now the PCDuino3 does not finish booting up on my screen. I get the following error: ply_terminal_set_mode 630 assertion terminal and my screen goes blank. I am able to ssh into the PCDuino3 using a wired Ethernet. Do you have any suggestions? I have another PCDuino3 an it works fine but I did not installed the update/upgrade. I tried to re-image the kernel but all attempts failed using PheonixSuite. I read that I might need a special microSD card. Has anyone installed an update and upgrade on the PCDuino3?
  20. Hello, I have clean instalation on pcduino V3. When I try to execute 'add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php5' I see the next error: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 185, in <module> sp = SoftwareProperties(options=options) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 97, in __init__ self.reload_sourceslist() File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 585, in reload_sourceslist self.distro.get_sources(self.sourceslist) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/aptsources/distro.py", line 87, in get_sources raise NoDistroTemplateException("Error: could not find a " aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template Just for information when I execute lsb_release -a I see: No LSB modules are available.

  21. Ok. I erased Ubuntu and installed Android. I decided that it was not quite ready for primetime (no analog audio support), and want to switch back to Ubuntu. I have tried the following: 1) Put the Kernel on a card and use that to install kernel on flash (using Win32DiskImager). 2) Next, download Ubuntu and put that on the card and boot with that (using Win32DiskImager). I go into Linux just fine, but while trying to write the image, it gets stuck in a loop. "No valid rootfs found, try to update from udisk and sdcard please insert the udisk or sdcard with update.sh and image file searching update.sh from usb disk... searching update.sh from sdcard..." If I boot without the SD card, it still does the same thing. However, if I plug in the card during the process, I see a bunch of messages flash on the screen that presumably relate to mounting the SD card. It is stuck here. Any advice on how to restore my PCDuino3 back to a factory-fresh image? Thanks.
