I received my PCBs today and I see that I've made a mistake: the ESD-protection prevents the USB-host port from working right. Removing the resistor and capacitor (or not soldering them in the first place) allows it to work. Leaving those out just means a slightly less protected USB-port, otherwise the board works fine, so I'm not in a hurry to design a fix. I'll do it when I feel like it.
(The microUSB-port is missing, because Chinaman sent me wrong connectors -- they don't match the holes on the PCB. Just gotta wait for the right ones to arrive in the mail.)
Welcome in the onion community!
As everything is smaller in IOT you can not expect the same as on a full Linux desktop/server system. So for the moment the only distro I know who works is the openWRT. So to check there in the wiki is always a good idea too.
OnionOS is full based on OpenWRT and also has a wiki. There you find a Tutorial for the Oled Display ... it uses node.js too.
Check out the onion.io Website, there on the footer you find more useful links.
Hi @Janus-Sanders, hmmm, installing a package on the Omega shouldn't crash it... Can you give us a little bit more description on what happened? This way we might be able to figure out what the issue might be and hopefully resolve it in the future.
Sorry - the list of usable pins was supposed to read "0, 1, 6, 7, 13, 14, 18, 19, 23, 26". These are also the only pins clickable in the Console's GPIO Tool, along with pins 8 and 9, which while clickable they resort to Direction: Output and - respectively - Value: 1 and Value 0. Are schematics for these modules available anywhere for the community? These would help immensely!
