A10S-Debian SD-card stabile image uploaded on Wiki


A10S now have complete support and the latest stabile image is on our Wiki.

1. Installation

Download the image from our Wiki Link, the name is A10S_debian_GPIO_LAN_USB_SDs_HDMI_LCD_4G_release_2.rar you have to unpack it. If you are under linux just # dd it to sd card and you are done, do not forget to # sync before you pull the card so all buffers are flushed. If you come from Windows world, use Winrar to unpack then download Win32DiskImager.exe and use it to write the image file to SD-card.

2. Boot

Put the sd card in the card slot and apply power supply, if you have USB-SERIAL-CABLE-F you can see the boot messages, otherwise just wait the Linux to boot, it will take a while.

Note: The default username/password is: root / olimex

What you got pre-installed in the image is:

In this Debian distribution are installed:

  • xfce4 desktop environment
  • gcc 4.6
  • python
  • libopencv-dev
  • i2ctools
  • mplayer
  • vlc

free space on the card: 1.9GB

Note: use at least Class10 card as otherwise the board will work quite slow, the A10s-Debian cards we sell preloaded are fast Class10 cards.

2. Tested moules with this image

3. Changing A10S-OLinuxino display setings from HDMI mode to LCDXXXxXXX mode

The default SD card setup is made with settings for HDMI 720i/60Hz.
If you want to switch between HDMI 720i/60Hz and LCDXXXxXXX mode then you have to replace the existing script.bin file from the first SD card partitition (note that this partitition is FAT – so you can replace the file under Windows or Linux) with the script.bin file from script_a10s_linux_LCDXXXxXXX directory.

Remark: UART2 from UEXT connector pin 3 and pin 4 respond to /dev/ttyS1

    I successfully installed this image on a card inserted into a MK802 that the manufacturer swapped in the A10s for the A10. I’m having trouble getting the wifi up and running and am a bit of a linux noob. What steps do I need to follow to get it working?
