DietPi on NanoPi Neo Air?

Post by thomaspfeiffer »

I tried to use DietPi on my NanoPi Neo Air. Thus i copied the unchanged image contained in DietPi_NanoPiNEO-armv7-Jessie.7z to an SD card. When it comes to setup the wifi, I always end up in something like this:
[ 151.356677] lost page write due to I/O error on mmcblk0p2
[ 151.380286] mmcblk0: error -110 sending status command, retrying

I used three different SD cards, but the I/O error never disappeared. So I'm quite sure this is not an issue of a broken SD card.

Additionally at this point in time I was never asked for the wifi key. So the DHCP client will never be able to connect to the wifi.

Do you have any suggestions for me how i can get DietPi running on my NanoPi Neo Air?

Thanks

Hi Thomas,

We are currently working on the NanoPi NEO Air image. Having a few issues with WiFi at the moment, looks like firmware/kernel issues (using ARMbian build tools). Will try and take another stab at it in the next few days.
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.

Great, thanks very much! :-) I'm just downloading it.

One additional question: If there are some spaces in the wifi key, shall i use quotation signs, eg:
Wifi_KEY="this is my wifi key"

Thanks!

Quotations shouldn't be needed, eg:

Code: Select all

Wifi_KEY=This is my WiFi password
Should work fine, but let us know if any issues (untested).

I didn't get the NanoPi NEO Air running, too. I worked with dietpi.txt, DietPi-Config and even fiddled about /etc/network/interfaces. None of them did work. I didn't get a working connection (both with DHCP and by adding a static IP address). So i gave up and continued using FriendlyArm's Ubuntu (nanopi-air-core-qte-sd4g.img.zip).

Nevertheless i'm still interested in using DietPi on my NanoPi NEO Air. Are there some logfiles i can have a look into in order to provide further details? Or is there any other useful information?

Thanks!

I'm using this usb to ttl converter: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00AFR ... UTF8&psc=1
I plug the USB to my Raspi and work with screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200. Be aware of cross-bonding TXD and RXD.
