    There will be a bug in the kernel.

    True. More precisely in the driver or somewhere close.


    But kernel is a work of thousands of people and we are just a few that support this project. It is good to bring this up, but you are using board we don't support (Bpi M2U) and hardware we have nothing to do with (DVB tuner) and we never provide any support. If it stopped working ... its mainly on you to fix it up, perhaps try to find if someone knows something.

    Even you are willing to cover debugging and fixing (count few days, perhaps weeks), we https://github.com/armbian/build/graphs/contributors?from=2020-01-08&to=2020-07-09&type=c can't afford to help you. We are overloaded with, 1000 x too many, issues already "addressed to armbian", while we have nothing to do with them and we will not do anything about ... 


    I hope you do understand that.

    Consider adding missing package btrfs-progs to minimal image

    or warn user when building of such system image is complete so user can resize root manually before the sd card is inserted.

    Also about other bugs yet to be discovered? :) And who has to do that?

    suggesting that there is no hardware acceleration.


    AFAIK all possible acceleration for imx6 has been mainlined and they are most likely enabled by default. Old 3.14 and 4.4 kernels were dropped long time ago.

    Is there any way to get hardware acceleration on a Udoo Quad with Armbian

    You will need to research the topic. Without researching ... I don't know. We never maintained this functionality. We care about basis functionality and if that works and if we have spare time (which never came), we proceed to such fancy and expensive to maintain functions.


    Armbian provides builds tools which gives you a solid base. General support terms: https://github.com/armbian/build#support

    I missed the meeting, sorry. Nothing to add from mvebu side though.


    No problem. In context of mvebtu there is not muc, perhaps switching DEV to 5.7.y  if not already? More complicated is E-bin upgrade. We stuck at 4.19.y ...

    I've been busy with the armbian-testing boards.

    Do we need 3rd party reviewing here, perhaps @martinayotte find some time? :P



    - Is there a real need of master port or we can stick to USB2SD functinality?

    - OS the I2C communication with host SBC needed, or we can use USB serial mode (CDC) for that?



    Perhaps this needs a bit more clearing / explanation? I am not sure that I understand what options do we have here and why would we need to change this ... ?

    Is there a possibilty to stay on the main branch and get constantly headers which fit to the released kernel?

    Possible / planned ... when we settle up our CI rearrangement ... which is getting extremely complicated and expensive to maintain. If you want better support, you are welcome to add your resources. 


    With trunk we are already at 5.7.y while for pushing updates from a previous build system stable branch we have no maintainer(s), build (probably) fails ...

    my main goal of the system is stability

    Kernel 5.4.y was first kernel where this hardware become usable to some degree. With 5.6.y some features were fixed, with 5.7.y a bit more ... there are ofc some problems ... one annoying problem which we are sorting out ATM is that board sometimes doesn't come back after reboot. It stays powered off ... This problem was so far only in 5.7.y

    Philosophy regarding "stability" is slightly different, until software for this particular hw matures. We are not there yet. So it usually doesn't really matter if upstream kernel is LTS or non LTS.

    I've been in a non-Internet zone in the last few days, I've missed everything .... 

    No problem. Well, its always hard to get everyone together ... but at least we have logs;) You are welcome to add your ideas here. Regarding TV boxes RFC we only hear out a short update from @TheLinuxBug That part is planned to be discussed in a separate topic - when possible.

    But to get started, I would need a small amout of info to know here to look at first.


    Any for that you have to spam forums? Who will clean after you?

    then publish the solution to the community

    You are welcome to solve any problem for and with the help of community, but so far I haven't notice anyone asking for this https://forum.armbian.com/forum/38-feature-requests/

    which maintainer could give us an advice, if not try to investigate this misbehaviour please ?

    The one which you are supporting?

    Anyone else similar?

    Yes, its upstream problem. The same on x86 workstation.


    Quick fix:

    apt install chromium=80.0.3987.162-1~deb10u1 chromium-sandbox=80.0.3987.162-1~deb10u1 chromium-common=80.0.3987.162-1~deb10u1

    poor English


    We added instant translator so people with not perfect English can also participate actively. Just write in your native language and we will see (Google translated) translation. Detail how-to operate will be presented right before. Service is paid which is why it will only be available for meetings. Currently we are in a free testing mode and this meeting should go within, but we actually don't know ... @Werner pawned his credit card ;)
