  1. @balbes150GPU-Test-Image launches properly(also testvideo from desktop plays fluent in windowmode&fullscreen) on s905w p281 x96 mini 2/16 (4.x PCB with working bt/wifi) as usual with the meson-gxl-s905w-p281.dtb
  2. For me rc3 works with desktop on x96mini 2/16G p281 hardware. Because I stick on bionic to use camorama I did just a quick test(localize, install some stuff..) from card, but it also reboots several times as expected and brings always the focal system WITH desktop up. Maybe try it again!?..
  3. Thank you @balbes150 for the new bionic build! Armbian_20.05.6_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.7.2_20200612.img.xz (plus via armbian-config added desktop) runs nice from internal on two newer(those strange ver. 4.x pcbs with wifi and bt working..) and one older/normal (no wifi) x96minis 2/16 with all programs I want/need at low temperatures(around 60°C).
  4. So it seems that the (native) resolution of screen is not detected properly..could you set the command via terminal to change resolution? Maybe you could add the desired res via commands for testing(will not be permanent and only for the session, but perfect to test..): xrandr --newmode "1368x768_60.00" 85.25 1368 1440 1576 1784 768 771 781 798 -hsync +vsync xrandr --addmode HDMI-1 1368x768_60.00 xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1368x768_60.00
  5. If xrandr can't open the display, there might be an error in your command.. Which command did you try? What gives xrandr --current ?? Often the simplest way is to adjust screen properties on tv(On many devices is also something like "autoadjust") to make the desktop fit.
  6. ..but on two x96minis I just went back to Armbian_20.08.0_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.7.0-rc7_desktop_20200531.img.xz because there is camorama still available, which gives me the best performance of all webcamviewers with 720p video(on focal with cheese, guvcview, kamoso etc. I always got around 15° higher temperatures and much higher cpu load) without using active cooling system or reducing cam resolution. So I'd appreciate if there were also bionic releases of the images in future to avoid using a noisy fan. On the box without cams focal works pretty normal, cool and smooth.
  7. Armbian_20.05.6_Arm-64_focal_current_5.7.0-rc7_desktop_20200605.img.xz works on my collection of x96 mini 2/16 as expected. Wifi & BT work only on the 4.x revision boards, on standard versions just ethernet(or usb wifi). No issues with the image so far, installed it already on internal of 3 boxes...
  8. ..but I always mentioned that wifi only works on 4.x versions of HW and on other just eth(or usb wifi). If you would find sources for this chip, you might be able to build the needed modules for this kernel, but I simply prefer using ethernet or usb-wifi (with better connection since antenna is outside the box on other standard x96 mini )which is -if you use the usb ports already- with a 3-Port mini hub plus the usb-wifi under 7-10$/€ shipped from CN.
  9. As usual just the newest (maybe test revisions?!) pcb version 4.x has a wifi chip working well, if you got the usual v.1.x-pcb inside with SSV6051(like I got on my first x96mini 2/16 too), just ethernet or usb wifi works.
  10. ..and you forgot to place an # before all lines which are not your hw (like rk3399 section..)
  11. ..yes, if you don't do what is said in first post, it is sure that it doesn't work. There is no need to copy and rename any dtb, but you have to configure the uEnv.txt to fit your HW..
  12. I guess it is more a new installation than an update what you want..because I have just p281 devices with s905w chip I can only write how I proceed on these devices, but as s905x and s905w are quite similar, that should work for you too: Burn image on card, configure that dtb is working for your hardware in uenv.txt"Complete copy OS to eMMC " If new system runs good from sd card, just boot from it, open a terminal and type: sudo /root/install-aml.sh after few minutes the script should have copied(/usr/ takes a while..) the stuff to eMMC and prompt:"Complete copy OS to eMMC " If that fails to reboot 20.05.5 image from internal after that, maybe try in terminal on boot from card to copy (again): sudo /root/install-aml-s905-emmc.sh ..but for me on 5+ amlogic p281/p212 devices install-aml.sh works perfect..
  13. I don't know this software and I've never seen your model of box, but I'd start with any image, to find out which dtb works(best) for you. Try all fitting somehow to s905 hw, until one works with all desired hardware parts(if you got no wifi but eth isn't enough, use usb wifi instead..). After that you should start using this specific dtb-name together with the image variant, which meets the recommendation from software you want to use the most..
  14. Armbian_20.05.5_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.7.0-rc7_desktop_20200527.img.xz runs nice on already two of my (newer) x96mini 2/16 boxes from eMMC. As always on those 4.x pcb revisions with wifi and bt working(it's not the standard chip). Will check with eth and usb sound on old x96mini box(with the unsupported standard wifi chip) later, but I doubt big issues or problems as the others run as expected.. Edit: As expected also on older pcb versions the image works well(as always on standard p281 no wifi) with ethernet and usb audio..
  15. ..was confused, because I thought there were already 2 versions of 20.05.4...
