I have read that running from an EMMC module is faster than micro SD Card. Is this true?

If so, is it worth the additional money on Pine A64 2GB? (will it improve performance once system is booted up and in Remix OS?)

Any particular specs i need to consider before purchasing an EMMC module for pine64?

Posted by: adamjedgar - 8 hours ago - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Will the pine 64 function with

1  ethernet port removed off the board
2 remove double usb and replace it with a single one
        -could the standard USB be exchanged for another micro USB

Video Linux gkrellm launch
Posted by: jhawk - Yesterday, 10:47 PM - Forum: Linux Development - Replies (1)

I like to use Gkrellm2 on linux Desktop, the one plugin I use the most is gkrellmlaunch, it allows me to get everything done from a simple light weight interface. However, it is never included in distributions, I will attach same for access.

Here is a little script I fire from launch.

# updater designed to keep system at latest state & clean
echo 'The following will be completed, Autoremove will require response.'
echo 'Update, Upgrade, Dist-Upgrade, Autoremove and Clean'
read -n1 -r -p "Press SPACE to continue or Ctrl+C to exit ... " key
if [ "$key" = '' ]; then
   echo "Continuing ..."
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade && sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get clean
echo 'Have a nice day!'

  Slim line Pine Board
Posted by: adamjedgar - Yesterday, 09:58 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

What are the chances of Pine developing a much thinner board?

ie get rid of the double row full size USB hub and ethernet, as well as swapping the pin slots for ones with 90 degree facing ones?

The current board is incredibly thick when put inside a case...particularly when combined with touchscreen. This kind of configuration would want to replicate a relatively thin tablet configuration would it not?

Sorry, I am new to the forum, so I am starting this thread in the Linux section as I couldn't find a section for other operating systems.

I am running FreeBSD on a Pine 64 A+ 2GB board.
The image I am using is:


It's designed to run headless, no HDMI yet.
I set it up using a serial FTDI converter hooked up to pins 7,8,9 of the Exp connector.

Then I added the FreeBSD 11 packages repo as per these instructions for a Pi3


That all worked well, everything is running except on the serial console and in dmesg, I am getting spurious interrupts on irq 27 which I think is the SD card controller.

 gic0: Spurious interrupt detected: last irq: 27 on CPU1
 gic0: Spurious interrupt detected: last irq: 27 on CPU3

The messages only seem to occur when the SD card is being accessed. I tried a high speed SDHI card and it made no difference, the board is being powered off a 5A USB supply and drawing only about 100mA when the SD card is being accessed, so it doesn't seem to be a power issue.

Is anyone else running FreeBSD and getting the same spurious interrupts?

Hi guys,
I have just purchased and setup a Pine A64+ 2GB model.

Current setup is using a micro USB power supply (samsung galaxy wall charger 5v 2.0 AMP)
Wireless USB mouse and keyboard
HDMI Belken cable to LG E2360 monitor.
O/S is

  • Remix OS 2.0 Image Release 20170105

I am quite impressed with initial setup...i was able to easily get system up and running.

A little question, i notice that on some websites google chrome seems to be very slow loading. Multitasking multiviewing seems to be slow as well.

what options are there for increasing performance?

  Editing SD card
Posted by: simplexdan - Yesterday, 07:52 PM - Forum: Android General - No Replies

Can someone please tell me what software I can use to edit the one text file on Boot so I can make the video work?  I do not have linux boot or computer to launch. I downloaded several things and all it did was brick my laptop. Don't want to do that again. Is there any reason we can't get an image with HDMI and LCD turned on out of the box? I'm learning a lot real fast, but this one has me stumped. Thanks!
