Hello, I'm a student at Technical University Varna. I'm doing my project for a thesis on Electronics and need help with the LED attached to pin18 on the board. It corresponds to gpio17 in Linux. But the board crashes immediately, when I try to set the value to 0.
Yesterday, I built my laptop. Quite all features seem to work well, except the camera, which seems not to work.(If I try Cheese, it says "no device found") How can I find out, what's the problem? If it's a hardware problem, or the camera is just not yet recognised by the system etc.
If you use this image: https://www.armbian.com/olimex-lime-a64/, use "sudo armbian-config" command in terminal and go on "system settings". You will see uart settings in here. You should enable uart3 in here and rebot your system.

In Olimage images try:
This script allows enabling different ports and buses - use arrow keys to move up, down, left or right, "space" to enable or disable different interface, once done - press "tab" to move selector down to "ok" and "cancel" options, press "enter" over "ok" or "cancel", if you've made changes restart the board with "reboot now" so that the changes get applied. There is another script:

There some binary blobs for the video in the current releases but you are not forced to use these images - we never said anything else and it is pretty clear in the sources that we published. If you don't need hardware acceleration or video-heavy tasks you can use a custom image without such acceleration. Most people want to test their hardware to the fullest and then switch to their favorite Linux flavor.
We are working on newer Linux releases for all our Allwinner boards without such blobs.
We are shipping but it all depends on status of the country and the carrier. We work with DHL and UPS, so check their posts here, these pages detail which countries are currently unavailable:
