I'm certain I used the correct mirror. Will double check later when I get home. One thing, does the SD card need a particular type or portions set up?

Success! I have a working Slackwarearm on my Orangepi.! Thank you. I did a fresh install with the new kernel and double checked the mirror I was using. After I got the new install and used slackpkg to install the remainder of the files, my system still failed to reboot. However I then performed a third fresh install using the legacy image and everything seems to be working.
I am still having the issue of having to manually start inet1 each time I boot. Once I get that figured out and get ntp time running on startup I will be completely happy with this.

Again thanks for the help.

[edit]I have been using the slackware.uk mirror[/edit]

Are you using linux-next ?
Do you know which patches are required for HDMI and audio, out of the lot you've collected?
I'm keen only to add what's required.

i don't know what patches are applied, but this is the monitor I have connected
Tontec 7 Inches Raspberry Pi LCD Display Screen TFT Monitor AT070TN90 with HDMI VGA Input Driver Board Controller

Display works fine, I haven't tried anything with video or audio yet.

I did have to use his img for legacy, that may be because the new kernel image requires also to use his package source. I will test that when I get another sd card. Both mini root images booted fine and displayed to this monitor. Only after using slackpkg to install the rest of the packages did the new kernel image fail.

Neither image will connect to my network on boot up. For some reason I have to start inet1 after the system is running.

Possibly because I pushed out a new kernel in the last batch, which you may have upgraded to - overwriting the one with the HDMI support?
If the Kernel name in /boot is the same as the one in the image you used, that's most likely what happened.

if rc.inet1 is chmod +x (which it should), networking should work. However, you might find that dhcpcd is timing out. Check the logs.

I suspect dhcp timeout. Just to be sure, i set inet1 to chmod +x manually. I don't see anything in dmseg, however during bootup it trys to aquire a ipv6 connection only, times out. and contiues loading.

Also I did not upgrade as far as I know. I just used slackpkg install-new.

I did a lot of googleing on stopping ipv6, but none of the suggestions worked. I finally appended a line to the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.M
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
That now gives me a network connection on boot up.

I can now confirm audio out HDMI does not work. Youtube videos play quite nicely, but audio is on analog output only. Pulse audio mixer does not let me configure/add HDMI out. This is output of aplay:
Code:
bash-4.4$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: audiocodec [audiocodec], device 0: SUNXI-CODEC sndcodec-0 []
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: sndhdmi [sndhdmi], device 0: SUNXI-HDMIAUDIO sndhdmi-0 []
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Code:
bash-4.4$ aplay -L
null
    Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
pulse
    PulseAudio Sound Server
sysdefault:CARD=audiocodec
    audiocodec, 
    Default Audio Device
sysdefault:CARD=sndhdmi
    sndhdmi, 
    Default Audio Device
Also uEnv.txt does't work as I expected. I added a line to change resolution of monitor
Code:
verbosity=1
console=both
setenv disp_mode "1024x768p60"
but monitor resolution remains 1280x720p50. I'm willing to concede that I have no real clue what I'm doing yet.

when using kernel legacy 3.4.113, the h3dmode utility is available to change the resolution

By default, the sound goes to the card 0, it needs to be in /etc/asound.conf
Code:
pcm.!default {
    type hw
    card 1
}
ctl.!default {
    type hw
    card 1
}

Please bear with me here, my attempts appear not work. How do I use h3dmode utility? There isn't man entry for it.

just point out the mode

Code:
h3dmode 5
which corresponds to hdmi 720p60
after reboot changes take effect

That gives error
Code:
bash-4.4# h3dmode 5
error decode bin file: /boot/script.bin
Just to verify kernel
Code:
bash-4.4# uname -a
Linux orangepi 3.4.113+ #3 SMP PREEMPT Sun Dec 10 09:48:36 EET 2017 armv7l ARMv7 Processor rev 5 (v7l) sun8i GNU/Linux
720p would be correct for what I now have connected. I switched to a small tv to test audio.

check that you have the package installed http://dl.fail.pp.ua/slackware/pkg/a...-arm-1mara.txz

and that /boot/script.bin is a link to the file
