Hello everyone,

I'm trying to find the latest images for A13-SOM-256 (Not for A13-OLinuXino). Actually, I tried to follow the instructions at the wiki page first. This image is worked but unfortunately I realized too late that the wiki page is outdated. After that, I found this post (https://olimex.wordpress.com/2020/04/21/olimage-mainline-linux-images-building-script-for-all-of-our-olinuxino-and-som-boards/) from other topics. But I guess the mentioned website in the blog post (http://images.olimex.com/release/a13/) is only for A13-OlinuXino. I tried the build script (https://github.com/OLIMEX/olimage/blob/master/build.sh) as well. But I couldn't get it to work.

Please, can anyone (especially @LubOlimex) help me to find or build the latest image for A13-SOM-256?

Well you have to get the script working. What exactly did you did and what exactly didn't work, any messages or log?

Did you do:

apt-get install qemu-user-static

?

What command did you use for the script? Something like:

ARGS=-r bash run.sh -v image A13-OLinuXino buster base       A13-OLinuXino-buster-base-$(date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S).img

?

I did what you said. I ran "apt-get install qemu-user-static" and "ARGS=-r bash run.sh -v image A13-OLinuXino buster base      A13-OLinuXino-buster-base-$(date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S).img" commands. But still I got the following message.

Sorry for this experience! My bad, I wrote without double checking myself or checking with the developers. only A13-SOM-512 is supported by the latest Olimage images. According to the developers the A13-SOM-256 has insufficient RAM memory for smooth Olimage experience and such support is not coming! I apologize, I wrote too soon without checking first.

For A13-SOM-256 you are pretty much stuck with the old releases from here:

https://ftp.olimex.com/Allwinner_Images/A13-SOM/

Alternatively, consider switching to the 512MB RAM version.

I have added it in the FAQ section and removed all references to Olimage of the web-page of A13-SOM-256.
