  Portable USB-Powered Monitor
Posted by: mribunal - 04-19-2016, 03:19 PM - Forum: POT modules - Replies (4)

I still don't have my Pine64+. I have a question for those familiar with the board's spec.

Can the Pine64 power a Portable USB Monitor such as the Asus MB168B+. Info is here: https://www.asus.com/us/Monitors/MB168BPlus/overview/


  A few questions SERIOUS ANSWERS ONLY
Posted by: yourhighpriestess - 04-19-2016, 02:02 PM - Forum: Getting Started - Replies (6)

The last two posts I did were hijacked by idiots who wanted to know how real my cards were. I'm going to try this again. 

How will I know if the board is working? Right now I have just power, HDMI and a mouse. I just put the 32GB card (NOT A FAKE SO DON'T BOTHER ME WITH THAT) in that is loaded with Android 20160216. The only thing I'm getting is a black screen for the last 5 minutes. It turns on for 15 seconds and then the light on the monitor light flashes.

Thanks for any responses .


  Trouble Installing PHP5
Posted by: JCMPine64 - 04-19-2016, 08:59 AM - Forum: General Discussion on PINE A64(+) - Replies (3)

I'm trying to install PHP5 so that I can run a Dokuwiki server, but I get this error message:

Code:
[email protected]:~$ sudo apt-get install php5-fpm php5-gd                                   Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package php5-fpm is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

Package php5-gd is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or

E: Package 'php5-fpm' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'php5-gd' has no installation candidate

I've added additional repositories and then run apt-get update, but no luck.
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main universe restricted multiverse"

Any suggestions on how to get PHP5 installed?

Thanks.


  Set Static IP
Posted by: JCMPine64 - 04-19-2016, 07:58 AM - Forum: General Discussion on PINE A64(+) - Replies (25)

I know this just me being a bonehead, but I can't figure out how to set a static IP on the Pine64.  I managed to set the address once with no problems, but after I re-imaged the sd card and tried to set the address the next couple of times, I managed to screw it up so badly that I had to re-image the sd card after each attempt.

I tried a couple of ways that failed (I can't remember what I did the first successful time):
Edited /etc/network/interfaces

Added these lines:
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.206
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.1

This didn't work.

Then I noticed a strange (to me) lines in the interfaces file:
# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
# Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d:
source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d

So I edited the eth0 file in interfaces.d and added the lines above to it.

Didn't work either.

Anyone have an idea on what I am doing wrong?
Thanks.


  Pi2 Server Comparison - Rough
Posted by: JCMPine64 - 04-19-2016, 07:48 AM - Forum: General Discussion on PINE A64(+) - Replies (10)

I just stood up a simple Samba server on my Pine64, configured the same as my existing Pi2 server.  I tested it using a robocopy backup script with a set of sample files.  Here are the details:

Files:
1 ripped dvd
1000+ epub books
Miscellaneous small files

Configuration:
Pi 2 model B
WD Red 3tb drive
Sabrent USB3.0 enclosure

Pine64 2mb
WD Red 3tb drive
Sabrent USB3.0 enclosure

Quick results:
Pi2

I also then deleted test files, and the Pine64 won easily.

Pi2 - avg 33 items/sec, time 3:40
Pine64 - avg 45 items/sec, time 2:40

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is just what I was hoping for.   Now to install DokuWiki and see how it compares to the Pi.


  Ongoing HDMI limited compatability
Posted by: rahlquist - 04-19-2016, 07:21 AM - Forum: General Discussion on PINE A64(+) - Replies (39)

tllim in particular, but anyone else in the know too.

What plans if any are being made to help address the large amount of HDMI issues folks are reporting (myself included).  Of particular interest is simply being able to use the board at this point.

Thanks,

  Chromium?
Posted by: Sailing_Nut - 04-18-2016, 02:52 PM - Forum: Debian - Replies (63)

This may be a bit of a n00b question.....

I was trying to install chromium but apt-get fails to locate a package, but I can in the Debian Jessie package list that there is an ARM variant of Chromium available.

Do I need to add a new source to pick that up?

Thanks!
