First time we use Khadas ARM64 products for a new project and started with the VIM3 pro boards.
The first attempts with this hardware are more than frustrating …!
Here are the first impressions, results.
- The HDMI screen settings are not correct, they can’t be adjusted.
- The touchscreen TS050 does not work from SD card.
- Qt development is not possible.
We executed following commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
This installed qt5 package.
Then we wanted to install qtcreator package, but it crashed with message “segmentation fault”:
sudo apt-get install qtcreator
It was possible to compile a qt project manually, without QtCreator.
But the created qt program crashed on start with “segmentation fault”.
HDMI screen settings were correct, and we could install and develop software with Qt/QtCreator, but:
The touchscreen TS050 does not work from SD card.
WiFi does not work correctly (wifi scan does not show existing wifi connections)
wiringPi does not work
the package from repository ( apt-get install wiringpi ) exits with message “No Hardware line”.
The version from “github.com/frank180/WiringPi” gives message “MODEL SETUP ERROR … Type: KHADAS-EDGE, Revision: 01 … … --> Khadas VIM3”.
The version from “github.com/khadas/WiringPi” gives message “Type: KHADAS-EDGE, Revision: 01 … … --> Khadas VIM3”.
Should Khadas customers be used as experimental rabbits for a non-mature product …?
Maybe there is a remedy for these problems.
