It seems that people have been successful with octopi on a banana pi in the past however I seem unable to reproduce these results.
I have tried the most recent nightly build of octopi for banana pi. I have also tried building my own octopi using the bananapi–M1 very end. As well as following through Foosels instructions for installing octal print on Raspian on a raspberry pi with the most recent raspian install for banana pi.
There are different results with each of these attempts but the end result is that the server will not run. It does not appear that the server is attempting to start with the octopi for bpi image (either way I get it, downloading the image or creating my own) and I get an error suggesting a package is missing when I follow Foosels instructions for the rpi.
There are some teaser bits of information that suggest the problem could be in pyserial, but I’m out of my depth in digging further right now.
Anyone have some suggestions?
