This is good to know, so you fixed the bug on the new version of Lemuntu.
The old Lemuntu 1509 just outputs an error-message.

Thank you for testing.

Sorry, I don't find the bug after installing the usbutils tool.   ...

disappointing   
No device connected to USB:
  1. root@Leguitar:/var/log# apt-get install iw usbutils
  2. Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
  3. Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.

  5. Empfohlene Pakete:

  7. Die folgenden NEUEN Pakete werden installiert:
  8.   iw usbutils
  9. 0 aktualisiert, 2 neu installiert, 0 zu entfernen und 0 nicht aktualisiert.

Copy the Code

Now I connected a device to USB:
  1. root@Leguitar:/var/log#
  2. root@Leguitar:/var/log# lsusb
  3. Bus 001 Device 002: ID 058f:6377 Alcor Micro Corp. Multimedia Card Reader
  4. Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
  5. root@Leguitar:/var/log#
Copy the Code

Is this correct, that you receive an error-message if there is no device conntected to the USB?

Yes, I meet the same error message according to your method. The problem may be caused by lack of the usbfs filesystem on the system. But it should not be affect the using.

We will start to upgrade the kernel to 3.10.78 when the display structure is stable. may be Mid December..

What about the Kernel, can we expect a Kernel update to version3.10.78 (LTS) in December?

I fixed patches up to 3.10.55 ... if anyone find this useful.

Armbian image is not ready since I need to do further fixing to boot loader.

Sorry, The kernel for the s500 don't update to version 3.10.78 in December. I think we can start to update in the next month.

To be more precise: You try to wait until Igor has done all the work since you lack the skills/time to do this yourself.

In other words: If Igor stops porting the patches then we will see from "you" only a kernel 3.10.55 :-)

@igorpec: Is it possible to 'hide' this directory in your repository? So that you could start with a clean Armbian build for Guitar and Roseapple Pi containing the latest kernel fixes and keeping LeMaker out?

The whole approach is rather moronic since LeMaker should've asked Actions Semi for a clean patchset that can be applied again to a clean fork of the official 3.10.37 kernel tree. What happens when LeMaker takes all your work (applying the patches) and apply them to 'their' repo and 'fix' some other stuff in between? Rather sooner or later your patches will then break when you use their repo as source, no?

We are Open Source Community, welcome anyone to share their efforts to all user. We also hope all user can help us to improve the platform.
We have planned to upgrade the kernel to the 3.10.78,may be the latest kernel 3.10.93 and remove useless code which be used to other Actions's SOC, not for s500.
The Actions Semi will release the newer display structure which support double screen different show and HDMI as master display, maybe this week, and we plan to upgrade the kernel based on newer structure. Meanwhile, the newer structure is the final version of the SDK from the Actions Semi .

Ok, you still don't get the importance to be able to use at leat the most recent version of kernel 3.10.y as long as this is an LTS release?
If you say that the 'new display structure' will be the last version of Actions Semi's SDK do you mean that they stop supporting you so you have to deal on your own with driver and hardware issues? Is this already Actions Semi's confession that their 'open source' engagement has failed or do they continue to give the impression a relabeled ATM7059 would be the basis of an open source movement (or something even weirder than that)?

C'mon: There are you and there are the Roseapple Pi guys, the latter trying to sell Actions Semi's Bubblegum reference design. The Watermelon Pi guys already gave up: https://www.indiegogo.com/projec ... d5-0-linux#/updates

And then there's so much 'open source' blabla but in reality it's quite the opposite and software efforts are already fragmented since you started with a different code base than the other guys over there https://github.com/xapp-le

The good news: They already commited Actions Semi 'new display structure' to their github repo so unfortunate Guitar users again don't have to wait for you: https://github.com/xapp-le/u-boo ... 799a018edb7e5da025b

But the whole situation has nothing to do with an open source community comparable to linux-sunxi. It's just you and a few other guys being backed directly by Actions Semi's engineer. If this has stopped now then it's understandable why Tony started again to take care of the Banana Pi/Pro forums.
