The answer is simple: A novice user won't do that since he's not able or willing to understand the ...
Tkaiser, that is the type of answer that an arrogant jerk would say to someone asking for help, rather than simply offer help. It's uncalled for. You have to be a special kind of broken to deem people unworthy of assistance when it is honestly asked.
The difference between the banana pi and the raspberry pi is that the Raspberry Pi support community is full of people who actually WANT TO HELP, and who don't insult newbies when they ask what self-proclaimed wizards deem to be "high knowledge, not suitable for anyone unless I approve of it!"
As a result of the ACTUAL support community, I was able to get a raspberry Pi, then get everything set up the way I wanted, within minutes. When i decided to make an arcade emulator, I successfully tested several versions out on my own, and easily got each one set up with minimal effort, including using the raspi-config to clock my Pi at the maximum speed without effort. All I want to do is get Mame set up on the banana pi so that it works just like it does on the raspberry, as well as conduct my experiment in making a modular laptop, with a Lubuntu computer as the base, which i did on my Raspberry Pi effortlessly.
What is the difference between the Raspi support community, and you people? Well, when I ask newbie questions in the Raspi community, I get lot of people who make no assumptions about my level of knowledge, and who ust give help. When i ask for help here, people like you come out and feel the need to tell me not to try what I'm asking for help with.
You give the banana Pi support community a bad name be being such a prick.
