Yeah you can do it, directions on install docs are top shelf!!!
ftp://ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwar...lWinner_H3.TXT
If I can help I certainly will offer up any ideas.

--I'm still rock solid on kernel in extra, going to order a couple heat sinks and try 4.19.5 again.
--Feeling good about power supply as I spliced into an old Dell tower power supply (In this way I power a 3.5 HD too)
__Keep up the good work Stuart!!!

Could you take a photo of what you've done there? I have some old PSUs I'd like to do that with, but when I looked at them, it wasn't as obvious as I thought it might be.
The last time I did something with a PSU was when I blew one up (POP and putrid smoke belched out) ;-)

looks a little sloppy around the powersupply. This was an old Dell workstation (XEON maybe) was getting scrapped so I grabbed the powersupply which looks odd as it was the base of the tower.
I just used red (5v) and yellow (12V) and some grounds connected to some spare molex and barrel ends. Needed to short a pin on the PSU. (its messy but here it is) one banana and one orange pi. (the raspberry is in the garage)


Orange and Banana PI (slackware ARM -current)

PowerSupply

http://lehcar.no-ip.org:8080/~rich/psu_pin.png

*short PS_ON to COM to keep PSU powered up without Motherboard.
-I used 5v (red) for PIs. The HDs wanted 12(yellow),5(red) and black (COM)
-didn't find use for the orange 3.3v wires (I used solder to tin the connections and plastic insulating wire shrink wrap)

these handy too: (molex to usb)
https://www.ebay.com/p/PC-Internal-5...0946613&chn=ps


The orange is running rdiff-backup to grab all B/U of all devices.
The banana is slackware / slackware-arm tree's on NFS and some dvds ripped and served via mediatomb. (was an asterisk install to some ata devices for home pbx, and may be again someday) ((was fun to have music on hold etc.))

had a trim slice but mother nature and lightning took care of that few years back. (Came into the house on coax and killed modem, router, and all devices connected on Ethernet)

I'm happy to announce that I now have Slackwarearm-current installed and running on my orange pi. I find myself a bit red faced over how easy it all is, now that I have all the little problems found and corrected. I did find two things I could never make work, I'm sure it is some thing I'm doing wrong, but I did find alternates to get past them. One was trying to download the uboot image:
Code:
wget ftp://ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwarearm/boardsupport/allwinner/H3/u-boot/bin/orangepi_pc.sdcard_latest.img.xz
that kept telling me the file didn't exist, I finally used my browser to go fetch it from the slackwarearm site and move it into the correct folder.
The other one I couldn't make work was the install folder. No matter what I tried, it kept giving me a 404 error for PACKAGES.TXT. I know the file is there, I even opened it with a text editor just to make sure it wasn't corrupted. I had entered the following in the url the installer asked for:
Code:
http://192.168.0.102:8000
and
Code:
/export/slackwarearm/slackwarearm-current/slackware/
for the location. That is the correct ip address for my server. When I tried it I could see the http server responding, but it kept saying the PACKAGES.TXT couldn't be found. After numerous tries, I gave up and tried an internet install. That worked and fortunately it didn't get interrupted before it completed. I tried several different iterations on the folder location with no success.

Good show!!! Interndan
I just got some heat sinks in the mail today, popped them on the H3 and memory modules. Upgraded to 4.19.5 after (~4 maybe) several days of operation on 4.17.19.
Will see if it stays stable.

wonder how we get these to populate:
/sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp
maybe kernel compile flag... gonna poke around

Debian distro reports can be found here: might be kernel option...
# mainline kernel 4.0 or above, SoC temp should be available
/sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp

Maybe something like:
****NOTE DID NOT TEST ANY HERE BTW (AXP209 seems good for A20 CPU, SUN4I seems right, the others are semi-blind guesses (ntc?? no idea)((others below could be other chipsets did not find much))
Code:
CONFIG_PINCTRL_AXP209=y
CONFIG_PWM_SUN4I=m
CONFIG_SENSORS_NTC_THERMISTOR=m
CONFIG_SENSORS_NCT6683=m
CONFIG_SENSORS_NCT6775=m
CONFIG_SENSORS_NCT7802=m
CONFIG_SENSORS_NCT7904=m
CONFIG_SENSORS_PCF8591=m
source:
http://linux-sunxi.org/Cpufreq
https://forum.armbian.com/topic/8795...bugging-party/
sample kernel config to peek at armbian I believe.

This is because the FTP site doesn't follow symlinks, it seems. It works over http, so I've changed the document. Thanks.

Probably the same problem because PACKAGES.TXT is also a symlink, but that's how it's meant to be.
Hmm. I'll see if the admin of the FTP site there will fix that.

Early to say for sure but seems like orange pi is stable with heatsinks installed.
-- Fingers crossed...
Code:

I've added a good spread of sensor modules to 4.19.6. I've also noticed that my TrimSlice Pro is stable since adopting the "on demand" CPU governor, where as previously it'd hang without warning.

Did you have any luck reading temp?
-I did not yet.

Going to read up how to compile kernel so I can help out. (remember its more involved for arm the regular slack)


Possible:
CONFIG_CPU_THERMAL=y
CONFIG_CLOCK_THERMAL=y

Nuts, there are some new entries in

still cpu stalling too (this is a tough nut to crack)
