Nanopi2: another candidate platform for Yunohost?

Hi all,
This is my first post in this forum.
I already installed & used successfully yunohost on various platforms (dedicated debian server, cubietruck, raspberry, olimex, virtualbox), including in its “labrique” flavour.

Now, I am testing it on a Nanopi2 [1] and [2] manufactured by the chinese manufacturer friendlyarm.

I used the image provided by the manufacturer copied on a TFCard with the “dd” command:

dd if=debian/nanopi2-debian-sd4g.img of=/dev/mmcblk0

After that, I booted the nanopi2 and followed the yunohost installation procedure. So far, all went good until the message “Congratulations! YunoHost has been successfully installed.”

Actually, I am stuck in the postinstall step, on the “Password” page with the “pacman” running from left to right.

More to follow…



Finally, Yunohost is fully installed.
In ran into some various issues though.
1/ /dev/root , with the root partition mounted on it, with 2.0 GB total space run out of space. An apt-get clean freed approx. 215 MB.

This said, I would suggest to install yunohost from scratch and not, as in my initial testing, on top on the manufacturers system, on which a full GUI with LXDE is installed.
Additionnaly, 4 GB got lost on the the 8 GB TF card (that was partitioned with a 64MB /dev/mmcblk0p1 and a 3.6GB /dev/mmcblk0p2 filesystem).

As for the network connexions, the nanopi2 has a builtin wlan port (based on a bcm4334 chip [1], as the “Final fw_path=/lib/firmware/ap6212/fw_bcm43438a0.bin” in the dmesg output suggests. I was able to activate a lan connexion with a spare USB to ETH adapter (Wii lan adapter).
