Hi Peter

The HDMI doesn’t work if you’re using LEDE image.

Thanks Gary


HDMI is not working. You can see and use terminal when you’re using the debugging uart port/pins.

Thank you. I guess I should buy a UART-adapter. Did you solve the issue with package source?

(Frank W.) #65

you can access bpi-r2 via ssh on over LAN-Ports, maybe http(s)-interface is accessable via this ip too

(peter.r.volkov) #66

Yes. I thought about it. But this will happen only if everything will work without unexpected problems. And even if it will work by default I will certainly break network doing experiments with interface confuration and firewall :slight_smile: Anyway, thank you

(Frank W.) #67

for this case you’ll need http://wiki.fw-web.de/doku.php?id=en/bpi-r2/debug-uart till hdmi is working (not working in 4.14 yet)


no, I didn’t. But I didn’t try it again… I dont know how to fix it. In other version (self compiled images for example) it works…

(peter.r.volkov) #69

It works with R2 and LEDE? Which images?

(Frank W.) #70

Hdmi works only with kernel 4.4 (default in ubuntu-images),lede uses 4.9


sorry, I mean the luci package works; not HDMI.


Hi, i have problem with opkg. I am not able to doeload any packages (luci, etc…) console says: “[package] has no valid architecture, ignoring” Is there some advice for me how to download and install packages?

(ZB) #73

I also met the same problem,It seems like architecture doesn’t suit。

here are some discussions:https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=57733

we need to find the right arch,and then modify /etc/opkg.conf to suit it, but I am still trying ……

(Paweł Kalemba) #74

Why not complie packages yourself?

(ZB) #75

sorry,I’m newer for openwrt, I also find someone said we could build our owe package, but he didn’t show the steps,I’ll serach for this ,thank you.

(gary) #76

We can select a package that we want by running command “make menuconfig”, if it’s configured as ‘M’, we can see the package in bin/targets/mediatek/32/packages/ after building lede project.

(ZB) #77

nice, thank you gary.

(Andrzej) #78

Is link http://pan.baidu.com/s/1eS1pRCA working? It’s not working for me

Also https://drive.google.com/open?id=1oP7jy1KrrIOifvImo2nQ59wx3_9hHkgk there is no image for LEDE.

(Frank W.) #79

the image on my gdrive is named mtk-bpi-r2-SD.img (or EMMC)…this name come from lede build-script…

(Andrzej) #80

Ok. I will try it. Thank you very much.

EDIT: Working :slight_smile:

Do somebody have proble when compiling luci? I have missing dependencies:

  • satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for luci:
  • libuci-lua (>= 2018-01-01)
  • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package luci.

My feeds.conf.default:

src-git packages https://git.lede-project.org/feed/packages.git
src-git packages https://git.lede-project.org/feed/packages.git
src-git luci https://git.lede-project.org/project/luci.git
src-git routing https://git.lede-project.org/feed/routing.git
src-git telephony https://git.lede-project.org/feed/telephony.git

I found same problem here https://forum.lede-project.org/t/solved-issues-compiling/10755, but looks like i’m using correct repository.

Can somedoby help me wich this?
