Title: Anyone using a libre computer AML-S905X-CC (Le Potato) for running fpp 5.5 or 6?
Post by: ledothan on September 15, 2022, 12:01:11 PM
I am trying to use a Libre Computer AML-S905X-CC (Le Potato) instead of rasperry Pi4 due to the costs of a Pi currently at 140$.
So far I am able to get FPP installed, but I am getting a problem, the service loads but fails to start fppd.service and fppoled.service. Does anyone know what is going on? or is there more info somewhere I can figure this out? I am not currently running an emmc and booting straight from sd.  I followed directions per armbian read me (https://github.com/FalconChristmas/fpp/blob/master/SD/README.Armbian) to get it installed. Also wondering if this computer is trash and should I just buy a pi because  the emmc for these boards look to be sold out?

I had one of those working a couple month ago so it should work.   I'd concentrate on fppd first.   There are a bunch of reasons why fppoled would stop (like not have a OLED configured) and, for the most part, it's not critical.   If you can try something like "systemctl start fppd" and "journalctl -u fppd" then something might show up as to why it's not running.
