Subject: Newbie questions getting a not yet supported board going (bananapi m2
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
GRUB and later even to a login prompt on the serial console.
I would expect it to work, since config has CONFIG_MMC_SUNXI_SLOT_EXTRA=2 to enable it.
Could you share a bit more about this SD card failure, please?
But there is nothing on the display (I would not care)
and, worse, no ethernet /
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?
The dtb should installed as part of dtb-sun8i package.
But we have a kernel failure with -lpae flavor, so there may be a mismatch between dtb and
You may want to try kernel-default instead.
