Armbian VisionFive 2 running

downloaded this weeks armbian visionfive2 image and got it running;


Did have to change dip switches, as mentioned in a forum, the settings for the default debian image did not work;

booted headless (even with the XFCE image), so used the serial to USB connector, to input default root password, and new user info.

I have the 8 gig version, and the default (above) boot only detected 4 Gig ram; searching google/forums indicated this is a known issue, and followed the steps from here (with different paths), final re-compile line, with the default image was

dtc -I dts -O dtb -o /boot/dtb-5.15.0-starfive2/starfive/jh7110-visionfive-v2.dtb vf2.dts

reboot, and all memory visible!

quick test, since I also have an nvme drive attached, with java and minecraft from my last post… started that.

runs fine, does not initially seem any slower (or faster) than the default debian image.
