    svkatielee got a reaction from gnasch in OpenGL on Mali GPU (BananaPi, OrangePi PC, etc)   
    I am a sailor and use OpenCPN for the navigation chart plotter. The charts load and zoom much faster with hardware openGL/ or ES.
    It has a way to display rendering technique and frames/sec and is barely useful without acceleration. It is very nice with it, even on the Orange Pi One. But I will use the Opi PC Plus for my final installation.
     
    I compiled opencpn(4.2 and 4.4) on the default Jessie desktop of both 5.05 and 5.10. I will be recompiling on 5.17 soon.
     
    So it is not only games and display managers that use openGL and hardware acceleration.
    Thank you all for armbian and the rest.

    svkatielee got a reaction from Igor in wicd gets erroneous BAD PASSWORD   
    It has taken a while but finally I now have Network Manager running instead of wicd.
    Here is what I did on my Opi PC 2E installed and booting from nand:
    Armbian Jessie desktop 5.14 apt-get upgraded to 5.16  and updated Aug 10, 165.
    Connected to cheap CDR-King Wireless-N AP Router (Chinese)
     
    apt-get install network-manager network-manager-gnome xfce4-notifyd  xfce4-indicator-plugin gnome-keyring gcr libgck-1-0 libgcr-3-common libgcr-base-3-1 libgcr-ui-3-1 p11-kit p11-kit-modules
    apt-get remove --purge wicd python-wicd wicd-daemon wicd-gtk
    gpasswd -a USERNAME netdev
     
    Comment out eth0 from /etc/network/interfaces, (also wlan0 if you have it)
    Change managed= to true in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
     
    Create new file with this content: /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.pkla
    [nm-applet]
    Identity=unix-group:netdev
    Action=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.*
    ResultAny=yes
    ResultInactive=no
    ResultActive=yes
     
    with eht0 connected and on-board WiFi,
    reboot
    came up with eth0 and WiFi available
    click nm-applet in menu bar
    select ifupdown (eth0)
        Ethernet comes up
    selected my wifi ssid
        Prompt for password
    entered password,
        prompted for default keyring password, left blank and click Continue and Continue again for clear text storage of password
     
    rebooted, still have both connected, but icon in nm-applet only shows WiFi
    but right-click->Connection Info shows both.
     
    Now for some testing ....
