Other OS

Working mplayer is HERE! Play 1080p/720p/all others!

Finally managed to clean a little, test and upload my debian build. Has all the drivers and configs needed to play videos. A little rough around the edges but work! It's using mplayer, cedar_dev, mali driers and libvdpau-sunxi. See my posts here if you want details: http://forum.lemaker.org/viewthread.php?tid=1707

Torrent: http://antifa.pw/banana.7z.torrent (use this if possible!)
Direct: http://antifa.pw/banana.7z

Unpack, burn to sd card (only 1GB is required), boot. Will boot straight to desktop, where you can view files etc.
You'll need to mount eg. pendrive, external disk or network resource and then you can play movies, just double click them

Default user/pass is banana/bananapi1
Next step would be to build XBMC for debian and set it's default player to Mplayer

Burned it on 2 different sd cards. On windows and on Linux. It never did booted.

What is root password?

   unpacked 7z?
then dd if=banana.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=512

should work and definitely worked for me.

root password is  276b77ad5986f9268bec

edit: eh, xbmc is extra bitch:

ERROR: Unable to create GUI. Exiting
Illegal instruction

Thanks, I wrote it down but my hand writing of a lower case "b" looks kinda like a six.
I didnt have any problems unpacking it and always have 7z installed on an OS.

It boots and is working. Installed iceweasel and am using it to post this message.
  1. sudo aptitude install iceweasel
Copy the Code

Tried yet another card. This time it works. Sorry for the noise.

I installed an Edimax wifi usb adapter the ew-7811un and got it working on WPA2 with hidden SSID support .
I was just wondering if the steps I took to accomplish it was just enough or a few to many.

All of this needs to be done as a privileged user, so you can prefix all the editing commands with sudo or just run “sudo su” to turn yourself into an administrator.

Install the wpa_supplicant utility

  1. apt-get install wpasupplicant
Copy the Code
This release supports Realtek RTL8188CE, RTL8188CUS, RTL8188DE, RTL8188SU, RTL8191SE, RTL8191SU, RTL8192CE, RTL8192CU, RTL8192DE, RTL8192E, RTL8192SE, RTL8192SU and RTL8192U-based devices.
Add a "non-free" component to /etc/apt/sources.list, for example:

  1.     # Debian 7 "Wheezy"
  2.     deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
Copy the Code
Update the list of available packages and install the firmware-realtek package:

  1.     # apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-realtek
Copy the Code
This step can be skipped for fresh install. Delete anything in this file about wlan0 or wlan1. This file is used to remember the physical characteristics of USB adapters and may well contain incorrect or misleading information, and should be empty apart from comments unless you have added other USB devices.
Edit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

Update /etc/network/interfaces to add the wlan0 section, so that it looks like this.

  1. # Used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8). See the interfaces(5) manpage or
  2. # /usr/share/doc/ifupdown/examples for more information.

  3. auto lo

  4. iface lo inet loopback
  5. iface eth0 inet dhcp

  6. auto wlan0
  7. iface wlan0 inet dhcp
  8. pre-up wpa_supplicant -Dwext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B
Copy the Code
Create the file wpa_supplicant.conf

  1. sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Copy the Code
WPA2-PSK with Hidden SSID support Make it look like this:

  1. ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
  2. ctrl_interface_group=0
  3. ap_scan=2
  4. network={
  5.   ssid="SSID_Name"
  6.   scan_ssid=1
  7.   proto=RSN
  8.   key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
  9.   pairwise=CCMP
  10.   group=CCMP
  11.   psk="this is my secret phrase"
  12. }
Copy the Code
in the nano editor hit keys Ctrl+x then y then Enter to save the new file.

Restrict the permissions of /etc/network/interfaces, to prevent disclosure:

  1. chmod 0600 /etc/network/interfaces
Copy the Code
Restrict the permissions of /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, to prevent pre-shared key (PSK) disclosure:

  1. chmod 0600 /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Copy the Code
Remove the "non-free" component from /etc/apt/sources.list, for example:

  1.     # Debian 7 "Wheezy"
  2.     #deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
Copy the Code
Update the list of available packages:

  1.     # apt-get update
Copy the Code

Just downloaded your image, and it works great!

I have used your built image. I want to use it as an demo unit for Kiosk application. Do you have idea on how to hide all booting messages?
