Can somebody help, Im using mipi display is it enough to connect only 4 mipi data lines(positive and negative) and clock line(positive and negative). I dont need touch interface. Display is hsd088ipw1-a. I have all voltages necessary for display.

Hi all, I got trouble to use the M3 as an NFS 4 client with the recent debian image. I always get a null pointer dereference. Does anybody know how to solve this?

I’m angry!!! :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

It seems that this is not possible!

This is the worst board!

sorry for this, let me check please.

if possible, please make a debian server. Many do not need a desktop

3 month BPI M3 works. And now this:

Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
- Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! /dev/mmcblk1p1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
Rebooting automatically due to panic= boot argument


sorry for late reply, I will release one soon.

Any help on this issue?

Hi. I am a new user M3. I use Debian. When i update packers list, there is an inscription that some repositories are not available. My next action should be left in the list only in the official repository Debian. then I use the command “aptitude safe-upgrade” in the end, I get a login at login, idle Synaptic, does not see the flash drive. i can’t fix it(new to Linux). Bought m3 to use this program on it: Can the program work on this computer? And how to update packages?
