Orange Pi Plus

Post by pakikje »

Hello,

I just bought a Orange Pi plus and read about Diet Pi. I'd love to try that one on my Pi. Is there a (beta) version somewhere?

Hi,

Unfortunately, we don't have access to the OPi Plus board (nor the funds) at this time. This is required to implement the image.

You can help resolve this, by asking OrangePi to send us a dev sample board that we can use, or donate towards its purchase.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.

ps: how do i donate? (or send a OPI+ to you?)

It seems that there are no 100% OK images out-there for the OPI+. With some images wifi doesn't work, with some the NiC doesn't work, with all of the HW acceleration doesn't work (only in android it works), etc...

Hi Patrick,

DietPi images are built on existing images and modified for DietPi, or, built using ARMbian build tools. So if the NIC/WiFi issues occur on the available images, they will most likely continue on the DietPi image due to using the same firmware/kernel/modules.

As for HW GPU acceleration, we only focus on this for the main boards (eg: due to widely available drivers via packages and documentation) at the moment. The main boards include Odroid's and Raspberry Pi.

Thats very kind to offer, but I think we have some success with getting a dev sample from OrangePi (thanks to Sciamano), will ask for the OPi+ aswell.

No idea, sorry. The only Cam related software we have in DietPi at the moment is for RPi cam only.
