    What happens if you run a stable (non nightly) version of Armbian Bionic?

    Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x (>= ver 5.55)

    CNX has a story on cheap Mecool KM8p boards. https://www.cnx-software.com/2019/01/04/mecool-km8-p-octa-core-tv-box-promo/ I wrote in a comment on Armbian and Coreelec support. Seasalt I have three of these KM8p Mecool’s 1G ram 8gb storage.. I am really happy with them. I run this image of Corelec Kodi CoreELEC- S912.arm-8.95.7-S912.img.gz https://coreelec.org/ It works fantastically as a super powerful Kodi player with surround sound. (Wifi may not be detected so you may need a usb Wifi dongle.) The S912 Processor can decode 10bit 1080P X265 compressed files. The video decoding is excellent. I run this version of Ubuntu – Armbian by Balbes on my Mecool KM8p and it works fantastically. https://yadi.sk/d/pHxaRAs-tZiei/5.67/20181228 Here is the Balbes Armbian forum. https://forum.armbian.com/topic/7930-armbian-for-amlogic-s9xxx-kernel-41x-ver-555/?page=12&tab=comments#comment-68965 The current Balbes s912 Armbian is REALLY stable and working very well. My only regret is that my 3 units are only 1gb Ram as the S912 Octa-core processor is REALLY powerful and is only constrained by ram. If you are going to run the wonderful Balbes Armbian get the 2 GB ram KM8p model for $34.00. The Ubuntu S912 armbian version uses Zram and works really well. Also I have cut the case and mounted a small raspberry pi fan on top of the heatsink with just two cable ties to hold it on. Now I have no heating problems.

    I have a Mecool KM8 s912 1GB ram. I tried to copy to emmc but it did not work. I used Armbian config tool and the tool said it had written to the internal Mecool emmc successfully but when I rebooted it was as if the Mecoll had reformatted and reinstalled the old emmc partitions?

    These are the very latest kernel. Babes has bee very active lately getting his s9xx Armbian working on many boards. Why not do 500 mb download and try. I prefer the Ubuntu desktop version.

    I recommend the Ubuntu desktop from here https://yadi.sk/d/pHxaRAs-tZiei/5.67/20181218

    Ok I looked at picture. With Babes s905 / s912 Armbian images you need to use a .dtb file so it knows how to boot. My guess is you did not edit the .dtb file name. In the boot directory from memory is a ?????.ini file. Open it with a txt editor and cut out the name of the dtb that is there and cut and paste in the one you want the box to boot with. After finding a dtb file that works it will boot.

    why are you running such a old image? I run the latest Ubuntu Desktop from here. https://yadi.sk/d/pHxaRAs-tZiei/5.67/20181218

    Znoxx, What is your Armbian cluster? and what does it do? I have been seriously thinking about the FUN of building a cluster but I can not think of a use or purpose that ? PS have you bench-marked your Orange Pi PC2 and or cluster? Seasalt
  10. Fantastic. I am downloading it now and will install tomorrow. I am having trouble playing x265 on my M4 Bionic armbian. Seasalt

    What is the 5volt voltage at the USB port. (do not put a mulimeter probe in to a usb port.) Cut a old usb cable measure the ends.. If the USB voltage is less than say 5v maybe you need to tweak your power supply voltage upwards a bit. Be very careful.
  13. I am amazed My NanoPi M4 2gb plays Assaultcube and Torcs so well for a $85 computer it is a great achievement. But I have some questions. If I have more than 2 Bots/ enemies in Assaultcube 1024 X 768 graphics setting good, it seems to slow down game play, Is this because the bots are limited to a single CPU thread? and would therefore work better on larger Intel single or dual chips? Is any one else playing Assaultcube what settings are you finding optimize the RK3399? Seasalt.

    The power supply you have is not even getting the board alone to a 5v usb voltage. Can you tweak a little trim pot on the power supply to get the voltage to say 5.15. Be very careful you do not blow anything up.

    Help for testing? (T4 / Neo4)

    Igor thanks for the long answer it makes many issues related to Video processing Hardware on Arm board clearer. But I still have some things I do not understand. Is it Arm or Rockchip who is not releasing the opensource video display driver information. Are they releasing a fully working ANDROID Video driver but not releasing a fully working Opensource Video driver for LINUX?
