I recently got myself a bananapi m2 zero.
It works well with armbian.
Naive as I am, I tried to boot the
openSUSE-Tumbleweed-ARM-XFCE-sinovoipbpim2plus.armv7l.raw on it and of
course failed miserably :-)
Today, with a serial console attached I found out that u-boot did not
find the sdcard. OK, I just copied the u-boot from the armbian image
over (after finding out it is directly on the SD card unpartitioned
"header.." ;-)) and now it boots into GRUB and later even to a login
prompt on the serial console.
But there is nothing on the display (I would not care) and, worse, no
ethernet / WiFi.
I guess I'd need a matching device tree file for the board (I also
needed to recompile it for armbian to use the USB OTG port as an USB
host port), but I failed at finding out where I could specify the dtb
file to be used for booting.
Any hints on where to look for this?
