  1. In the file /etc/modules describes what to load at startup. It can be edited to suit your needs. To remove unnecessary modules or add new ones. If the module is loaded automatically - you can make it to the block list (how to do it is described on the Internet for the desired distribution).
  2. This dtb file only applies to version the latest test images (test\20170423). In these images the latest kernel version 4.11.0+ (source from Neil Armstrong). These images are based on kernel contains a working version of HDMI (the monitor). The original boxes with S905 (Vega S95 , MXQ ) is a complete desktop, USB works (mouse and keyboard), running a wired network. The system successfully starts from USB drives and SD cards. Thus, I believe that it is almost working system kernel 4.x for office and server use. While there is one (for me) the problem is not working USB chips S905X and S912, which does not allow to use these images as desktop. By the way. I have a request to all is to try to run those images on their TV boxes and write results. This will help to accelerate the development of a new kernel on Amlogic platform. Obtained information I will give Neil Armstrong and the rest of the kernel developers.
  3. How justified are the costs of time creating this image ? I will look at them. Try the latest test images, there are different variants of the dtb. And you can try to add Your patches.
  4. Added to the website for more dtb file with fixes to work wired network 1 GB S905. For image kernel 4.11.0+ (dir Test) meson-gxbb-p200-lan.dtb
  5. 1. Try using the image Ubuntu. 2. Disable the download of WiFi module in Debian and try with dtb n200. We must look at the source code, I don't know what is there.
  6. Added a new image test\20170423 kernel 4.11 (a link to the discussion of the kernel on the forum Khadas VIM). It has an output on the monitor. Pay attention that s905x USB not working yet, so the picture is there, but mouse and keyboard do not work, can only be controlled via ssh or UART and the launch is possible only with SD card. When choosing dtb recommend to check all the options files (for your platform). S905 works on USB so you can run a full desktop with mouse and keyboard and USB drives. Details and other images will come later (as long as there is Assembly, testing and loading).
  7. This image contains more settings and files that cannot be obtained through an update.
  8. Image update 20170421. Added to the library libMali (for fbdev). Please check the Firefox browser with file playback at resolution of 1080p. I have to check we have an odd situation, tried full screen youtube videos , like playable, but only if choose the 720p (screen resolution is set to 1080p). The temperature in armbianmonitor shows about 50 Degrees. I'm not well versed in matters of videoscoralie. I'm not clear whether acceleration is working, whether this effect is from something else. For work acceleration in the video (mpv vlc etc) it is necessary to recompile with support for Mali r5p1-01rel0 . I have not yet figured out how this is done in Ubuntu (something to build the package). I would be very grateful if you could drop links to instructions on how to do it. test link I found a video which offers a 1080p
  9. Thanks, I will check the use of these patches. test image server 20170414.
  10. Try that does not change in the TV box (leave activated universal multiboot from Armbian) and write to card LE and try to start the system from the card LE. If the LE to start , run fw_printenv via SSH and show me the output.
  11. An updated version of the images 20170414. In these images added the ability to automatically use the built-in dtb out of internal memory. If no existing media file "dtb.img", the system tries to load the dtb from the internal memory. This feature is only being tested. Please to those who have the opportunity to check this option. Note that due to the fact that in the last image is the latest version of the kernel, dtb built-in data can not work properly. For example, I have on Tronsmart MXIII Plus when using built-in dtb data from the LE, the system starts normally, but the monitor does not display a picture (in this version I run via ssh and UART). It is important for me to clarify how to work this feature on other models with different firmware. The important thing is that we could start the total system (that you could connect via SSH or UART). If this function is startup dtb data from the internal memory, will be able to work on all models, then there is a chance to have a universal system.
  12. I looked at Your kernel sources, but there's a lot of changes to my branch. You can specify which patches imposed on the source ? I want to try to compare the behavior of the kernel (with the patches and without them) when working with the network.
  13. To get the output in the startup process - you need to rebuild the initrd script to enable activation of the monitor in the beginning of the system start (with the addition of the utility fbset part of the initrd). I tried to discuss this issue with the developers Armbian, but I was advised not to change the scripts generating the initrd, do not get the problem in the future. Maybe I'll return to this question later (I don't have time for this). I don't have a free USB drive with 2 TB to check. Whenever possible I will try to check. This is not a bug. It is a feature of the poll the USB ports and destination numbers in u-boot. Reversed the discs. Every model TV of the boxes in u-boot has its order assign a name to the USB. In the script add the ability to run on all ports (when connected to multiple ports), but this will increase startup time. For those who need it can advise to collect your own version of the two scripts activate and launch, with the addition of a survey of USB ports 1 , USB 2 etc (add the lines with these descriptions in both script and preactivate-multiboot with the new settings).
  14. I have not studied this question, so this is just my assumption. Software or kernel detects 8 cores and try them all in parallel (the same) to use. I am inclined to think that the reason in the software, because other programs\testing (that you asked for at the time), show the full performance by using a basic kernel with a full load.
  15. 1. The first start takes more than 5-8 minutes on a slow or large media. No signal when you start with external drives is fine. After launch and is ready, she will turn on the monitor. 2. The file "boot.bmp" have no effect (it is not yet used), you can delete it. 3. Automount in Ubuntu works.
