A20-OLinuXino universal image updated – now supporting our new boards with SPI+eMMC


We just uploaded new A20-OLinuXino universal image at our FTP.

With this image we add support for the new OLinuXino boards with eMMC+SPI.

Few things need some more attention and will be fixed in new image next week: boot from SPI with rootFS on HDD or USB Flash. The new LCD-15.6 eDP display also doesn’t like the new kernel and drivers, but will be fixed too. These are explained in the ISSUES.txt.

The new image also support our new 5″, 7″ and 10″ capacitive touch displays (not on our web for sale yet as still testing) automatically i.e. plug and play and no need to run display script, each time at boot it recognizes the connected display and configure the drivers.

All other peripherals and devices are tested to work with: A20-OLinuXino-LIME, A20-OLinuXino-LIME2, A20-OLinuXino-MICRO, A20-SOM and A20-SOM204.

    What happened to your web site? It has become completely unusable (didn’t check with different browser settings like cookies or JS enabled). There is no shop anymore that could be selected, since there are no clickable menus. Why did you break it?

      Unfortunately we have no idea how to implement web shop working without cookies and javascript, can you show us example? Our guess for you not able to see the menus is that you use large zoom value or access via phone where screen display size becomes small and in this cases menus are shrink to clickable icons on top left and right corners. Please check if this is the case and zoom out or use the icons for the menus.

    Is someone working on the GT2005 camera driver? It would be nice to have that, if not some instructions on how it can be built against the latest kernel headers. I am interested in contributing on this if possible.

    Now that Kernel 3.x is gone, script.bin /.fex and text editing a simple text file seems also to be gone. I wonder how to edit GPIO parameters, etc.
