I have an old Olinuxino A40 Micro working with old image and 10" LCD. Now I will use it with a VGA monitor with 1024x768 or 1280x1024 resolution. I have VGA cable.

What I have to do for this using latest image

A20-OLinuXino-focal-minimal-20201105-143953.img

from Olimex?

olinuxino-display permit only a selection of LCD display, no VGA output.
HDMI output is working.

I have to ask around if VGA is supported in newest images but meanwhile can you tell me:

1. What board exactly do you have? A20-OLinuXino-MICRO?

2. How is the VGA cable attached to the A20-OLinuXino-MICRO? Via A20-VGA-CABLE https://www.olimex.com/Products/Components/Cables/A20-VGA-CABLE/ ?

My board is a A20 Olinuxino with 4 Gb of Nand - Board revision in C

VGA is connected with Olimex adapter.

If I use Armbian image I get initial messages on VGA monitor and I can also interrupt U-boot. But messages on VGA vanish during boot and go to HDMI monitor.

It seems VGA output is not supported in the mainline images at the moment. The team had been notified and is working on it.
