ok I posted here https://forum.armbian.com/topic/13639-olimex-lime-a64-no-usb-and-no-emmc-detected/

I had time to compile the olimex build and i have also the problem.

ARDUINO / Re: Best book for complete beg...

Get some cheap board, that does not require an external programmer - Arduino is fine.

Arduino For Dummies - yes, let's face it
K&R C - cool book, the meat of programming;
MISRA C - software development guidelines for the C programming language, even at a beginning stage it is good to get used to good practices

Avoid anything that mentions "21 days" or "7 days"...


Here's my 2 cents on this topic, and it can be applied anywhere:

Start with the shortest book/tutorial first! Books? Books are nice and well structured, but you feed from results. You may have seen this example quite often, it is very frequently used: when you learn to play some instrument, you do not start learning music theory (unless your parents forced you at the ripe old age of 8 to play the oboe) or get bogged down with complex time measures and notes... no, you go ahead and try to play the song as fast as possible, watching youtube tutorials and struggling on, until you can play it for your mates and bitterly disappoint them.

OK back to microelectronics: get an Arduino board, check out some ESP32s, run a blinking led example and keep on increasing the complexity little by little. You want to keep complexity in in the center between 'ok this is too easy I'm bored' and 'wow so hard, I'm never going to reach this level of mastery'.

Books for beginners? Some may claim that they are, but there are none, good books have quality information, and quality information seems 'dry and boring' to beginners. Just dive head first, use google a lot and keep practicing.

Pro tip: after some time - periodically keep re-reading whatever you have read before.

Another tip: have a 'pet project' that you care about and constantly tinker and improve.

Elektor may have such book(s).

(I'm guessing they won't fix it unless they know it's broken.)

Im an electrical engineering student so i have some knowledge on electrical components and how they work, I know some C++ coding and how loops work.

I also have downloaded Hackster's arduino course but I also want to study it on a book as well.

Or what do you think is better and from where to start?

I'm getting the same problem, no usb and no emmc working.

I'm using the latest armbian dev build.
No change to the config of kernel, choosing lime-a64 and no desktop when asked to by ./compile.sh

The only difference i see with martinayotte is that we're using the A64-OLinuXino-2Ge8G-IND while martinayotte is using the 1GB-W version.

When compiling, the only choice for lime-a64 has the description: A64 quad core 1GB RAM SoC GBE eMMC Wi-Fi/BT.
That doesn't correspond to the A64-OLinuXino-2Ge8G-IND.

We've had quite of these boards used for customer and commercial projects. For example, it is not secret that A20-OLinuXino-LIME2 boards were used in some models of Ultimaker printers. In any case I always recommend customers to evaluate a couple of boards before making any big commitment to our products.

While making the video clear I actually found that what I have to do is press the microsd card even farther in, using my fingernail, and then it clicks in and works fine.

Thanks so much.

Hi guys,

First post & sorry for my english...

I'm looking for any feeback about OLIMEX board (A20-OLinuXino-LIME) with the OLIMEX 7 inch screen. I'm cofounder of a french startup and we want to implement this board in our product (about 200 units/year).

Is this board/screen good for this king of use ? (lifetime & reliability/stability)

Have you any exemples of similar use/aplication (production use) ?

Thank you for your answers,

This has resolved my problem. Many thanks!
