I’ve had one of these kicking around for awhile and finally went to use it.
Installed a few distros, no real luck. Ended up with armbian latest.
Wifi? Nope. USB dongle worked fine though
microphone? Nope. Seems others have issue across distributions… USB soundcard on the way.
GPIO? Nope. https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-WiringPi2.git and https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-WiringPi.git both give
Unable to determine hardware version. I see: Hardware : Allwinner A83t board
I’m guessing headphone jack doesnt work either.
Any tips or hints for me for anything resembling a working distro or get any of the onboard hardware to work??
I need GPIO. The rest I can suffer through I guess. I don’t care if it’s an old linux version, after its all setup, it’ll be off network.
Looking for any solution to this. Else I’m back to using an old RPI v3… less ram, but at least it works.
But yea, any version of linux that supports mic, wifi, gpio and apt would be amazing! It’s very time consuimg to just try a version and see each one.
