Sorry, but considering the silence here, I wanted to check whether there is anyone alive here at all, before wasting my time on digging into any problems. I wasn’t sure it is not just some kind of automatic, untested build.
Ok. I have not actually done much testing. I just installed the 3.212 (tried both pine64plus and pine64base, since I did not find any explanation on the difference) and noticed it booted and connected to network, but that was about all. None of the crucial services managed to start (mpd, ssh, volumio UI, …). I couldn’t find any clear explanation in the logs. So, I just tried version 2.916 and that one “just works” out of the box (despite of noticing mostly the same kind of “errors” in the logs that I have noticed with 3.212 - so they are obviously not fatal).
So, I wanted to know whether the newer builds were actually ever tested on some Pine64. I only quickly tested on a Pine A64 2GB (so I suppose it is the “+” version - always forgetting the difference). I also have some 1GB versions, so I can do some more testing as long as the available time and SD cards allow. Maybe, I could test the previous version 3.187 first, unless you have some other suggestion. I suppose you have a better idea than me what has been changed between the releases.
(Well, and of course I did not manage to activate the original Pine LCD panel either yet, but as far as I noticed in the forum, you cannot really help with that problem. Anyway, that is not that crucial.)
