Good job Mozes, I installed to the internal emmc on an Orange Pi Plus2. (planning to add a sata later once I splice in power to a 3.5 inch HD. using an old PC power supply)
>installed from USB connected media (after TFTP)
- just like you stated, on the first live system boot-up ,after install with the usb removed, I had to edit /etc/fstab and change root partition.
to mmcblk1p2 I think the installer wanted it to be mmcblk2p2.


had to use a remount command on the next boot then change up the /etc/fstab (changed all mmcblk2 to 1 example:"mmcblk2p1" to "mmcblk1p1"
Code:
mount -o rw,remount /
vim /etc/fstab 
init 6


BEFORE:
Code:
rich@orange ~ $ cat /etc/fstab 
/dev/mmcblk2p1   swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/mmcblk2p2   /                ext4        defaults         1   1
#/dev/cdrom      /mnt/cdrom       auto        noauto,owner,ro,comment=x-gvfs-show 0   0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
tmpfs            /dev/shm         tmpfs       defaults         0   0

AFTER:
Code:
rich@orange ~ $ cat /etc/fstab 
/dev/mmcblk1p1   swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/mmcblk1p2   /                ext4        defaults         1   1
#/dev/cdrom      /mnt/cdrom       auto        noauto,owner,ro,comment=x-gvfs-show 0   0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
tmpfs            /dev/shm         tmpfs       defaults         0   0

Really nice work on the ethernet !!!

I don't see why that would happen. If you put the u-boot on to the SD card as described, then the order should be the same in the installer as it is when the newly installed OS boots.

I think this was the culprit:
I had a USBstick with the package tree connected all during setup then removed for 1st boot up. (to grab the package tree from usb rather than NFS) ((this was my plan from before the Ethernet was working)) (((now a non-issue, since Ethernet works)))

This was a good note too:
I see it is suggested to connect USB after the OS boots.

(the USB installer will not include # the package tree, just the installer image)) then you'd need to add the USB
# stick _after_ the OS has booted.


So just a user issue, good learning experience. - I didn't panic and had my towel near by

But USB is not mmc, it shows as a SCSI device (/dev/sdXX). Indeed I had the same problem as I had a USB stick left plugged in from developing the USB installer image, and had to edit the fstab from the rescue shell since the system would not boot (hence the note in the INSTALL file). If you had to change the mmc device then something unexpected has happened.

I wonder just how does that fit in the greater picture?
(It did load, but didn't spew anything in dmesg ?)

It was presented during make oldconfig, so I included it. Nothing broke (that I'm aware of) and the story continues.

I hope soon we get the working /dev/fb0 too...

Currently it is present in the device tree, but it has the status of disabled?

I do not think that video works at all on the Orange Pi yet, at least in the kernel.org kernel. I have not checked for a while though.

Rest assured, where there a slightest doubt of it working in any "vanilla+single_patch" I would go all bells and whistles mode here as soon as possible (+/- a day or two) :^]

But, alas, there is only hope and patience on the horizon right now?
