Banana Pi
http://lemaker.org/ looks promising. Faster CPU, 1000baseTX LAN port, 1 GB RAM.

RE: Banana Pi
Thanks for the link Kurt! I hadn't heard of Banana Pi before. Nice to see a faster processor, more Ram and faster network speed.

Gibbio, would this greatly increase the performance of connecting your Thin Client project?

Thanks!

RE: Banana Pi
Banana Pi Smile Same spec as Cubieboard2, so if you want you can use the same image for Cubieboard2 TC project (http://www.armtc.net/?page_id=21). I expect the same performance as using Cubieboard2 or other A20 ARM SoC.
Just remember to change the kernel/modules to update drivers!

RE: Banana Pi
I've bought a Banana Pi but inially I'm running Lubuntu on it for now. It's very responsive and quick which is a nice change from the sluggish Raspberry Pi. But as a thin client the Raspberry Pi is working very well for us. But we do have some users in our office who use their Raspberry Pi thin client for Internet Work and Office. I'd like to see if using the Banana Pi for these special case use workstations would improve performance.

Gibbio, can you assist with what I need to do to get rpitc on a Banana Pi?

RE: Banana Pi
I have testet the Image from cubieboard2, but after recognising the usb things it stops.
http://www.armtc.net/?page_id=21

Any Advice?

It would be great if we get an Thin Client Image for the banana Pi.

Befor i get the banana pi i had the raspberry Pi B+ and the thin image works great. The important thing is the need for a working cardreader in rdp for banking. And with this i have no working image for banana pi found.

So perhaps somebody have fun and make a port to Banana Pi.

THX a lot.

best regards
Stefan

RE: Banana Pi
Hi,

I'm running Lubuntu on the BPi too. But I would like to have the Rpitc Thing Client Distro on the BPi.
But I'm unhappy that there is no response to the questions asked here.
We are willing to do some tests to get it work. But we need some more advice to start.

...

RE: Banana Pi
Sorry for resurrecting an old thread here Admin and DaWest..but I'd really like to give rpitc a try on my banana pi. Could you explain to us what 'change the kernel/modules to update drivers' mean? Sorry for being thick here but after I take the cubieboard download and put it to an SD card, then what would I do?

Thank you.
