  1. Check to see if you are actually utilizing the blobs. You can check your Xorg logs to see if the driver is fully loading, because if it doesn't , depending on your X config, it could fall back to X11/fbdev I had full Mali support running. For burn-in I left Armagatrond running and video for my Plex server transcoding in the background. My nanopct4 failed and would no longer boot. I shipped it back to Amazon and they sent me a replacement. I've since scrapped using the nanopct4 as a media device / Dolphin EMU game platform. Now I am only using the nanopct4 as a media storage device and backup server. Now my media device / Steam game playform is an Intel NUC. At least the Intel GPU is well supported, no need to deal with blobs. And It did not burn up during "burn-in". I might use the nanopct4 as an Arduinio controller. But I still would want to see a fully Linux supported GPU. (waveform display) Also.. EGL belongs with Android, I want OpenGL 3+ on ARM. I don't think the T860 is slow. I think the T860 support is sub par.
  2. I am using the power supply that came with the FriendlyArm kit. I reset and reinstalled Armbian , android8, android7, and friendly desktop multiple times before the failure. Maskedrom and recovery were no longer working. The status led was off. My restore to the replacement board should be done soon. Hopefully there's some info in the logs. I need more info to prove it but I think it was thermal failure. How hot can the boards run before the SOC is damaged ? 90C ?
  3. I built up a NanoPC-T4 with a 240GB NVMe. I am using the supplied heat sink and the black metal case that FriendlyArm sells. While I was copying an image over I got a board failure. A reset and power cycle didn't work. The stat light no longer shows activity. Just power.. that is all. Amazon was great and replaced the board. I am in the process of backing up my NVMe. After the backup I will run an OS install and restore the image. Has anyone else ran into this ? The black metal case isn't hot enough to burn my hands.. it's just very warm to the touch,. Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.67 user-built Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS 4.4.166-rk3399 System load: 0.95 2.41 2.69 Up time: 1:00 hour Memory usage: 13 % of 3810MB Zram usage: 20 % of 1023Mb IP: CPU temp: 80°C Usage of /: 18% of 15G storage/: 4% of 7.3T
  4. I managed to get everything working in Armbian. I left the board running Armagetron AI matches overnight to burn it in with all graphics options turned up. My board failed.. It no longer boots. When looking at the status led it does not flash. I tried maskedrom boot off the sdcard, nothing. The last time I checked the CPU temp while the burn-in was running was 64C. Not enough to destroy the board at all. Amazon is sending me a replacement. I should have another board to experiment with sometime next week.
  5. I rebuilt Supertuxkart with OpenGLES 3 support. It works but I need to get a fan. My board is runing at 85C right now. I'm working on rebuilding CubucSDR. Rebuilding Wxwidgets .. hopefully will work with gl4es. I'm also working on fixing plexmediaplayer.. after I installed gl4es, plexmediaplayer segfaults. ran gdb and did an apitrace.
  6. Thanks! Apparently the GL4ES wrapper does not support the opengl version than supertux requires: OpenGL: OpenGL version is too old! [info ] IrrDriver: OpenGL version string: 2.0 gl4es wrapper 1.1.1 [warn ] Graphics: Can not find version for '2.0 gl4es wrapper 1.1.1' 'GL4ES wrapper' - ignored. [warn ] irr_driver: Using the fixed pipeline (old GPU, or shaders disabled in options) I'm goig to recompile the wrapper, maybe it wasn't build for OpenGL 2.0 support.
  7. Update. With GL4ES we have OpenGL 2.1. It's not adequate for Dolphin. The version in the Armbian repo does not support EGL. I'll download the source from GIT and compile/test an EGL version. Right now I am building apps that will work. GQRZ works, now I am building an optimized version of CubicSDR. Maye tonight I'll try to get the Pothos Suite built. OpenGL 2.1 should be fine for LiquidDSP. Building a portable SDR with the NanoPC-T4 looks promising! Building a Gaming Media Center.. well I've got the Media Center working, but gaming is going to take some work yet.
  8. Hi, Now that I have my NanoPC-T4 working with hardware 3D acceleration, 1080p video playback, full development environment on NVMe, Think it's time for a backup. Has anyone found a usefull utility ? Or should I just use dd to dump the eMMC partions to image files on a USB attached drive and rsync to backup the NVMe the the same ? I'd imagine to restore just boot from an install image, don't install, just dd the images to their repective eMMC partitions and rysnc to restore. Has anyone had to restore a board and how well did your solution work for you ?
  9. It's beginning to WORK! What I did was search for the Mesa Libraries, remove them. run ldconfig. Install Jocks's X11 Armsoc Driver, Install @lex's Midgard Mali T86 Blobs. run mali-config.sh for x11. At first I though not successfull because glmark2-es2 has poor benchmarks. I compiled and installed the GL4ES wrapper, and updated my xorg.conf.d configurations. Here's what's working: If you look the config over and notice someting that will slow down glmark2-es2 , please let me know. bzflag is playable at full 1080p, High Quality setting. Armegetron plays well 1080p, all options turned up. Pretty soon I will be able to experiment with GnuRadio and get the more complex configurations that require a GPU running. I am not sure why Supertuxkart does not work. Maybe gl4es does not support some of the GL code used ? I will attach a screenshot to this, if anyone knows, please update the thread.

  10. I built Jock's forked X11 armsoc driver, Installed and configured the Malie BLOB rpm and configured for X11. Rebooted. I ran glmark2-es2 : ======================================================= root@nanopct4:~/Desktop# glmark2-es2 --fullscreen ======================================================= glmark2 2014.03+git20150611.fa71af2d ======================================================= OpenGL Information GL_VENDOR: ARM GL_RENDERER: Mali-T860 GL_VERSION: OpenGL ES 3.2 v1.r14p0-01rel0-git(966ed26).f44c85cb3d2ceb87e8be88e7592755c3 ======================================================= [build] use-vbo=false: FPS: 11 FrameTime: 90.909 ms [build] use-vbo=true: FPS: 13 FrameTime: 76.923 ms ======================================================= glmark2 Score: 12 ======================================================= I checked the Xorg.0.log.. armsock_dri isn't installed.

If you have armsoc_dri.so can you attach it to this thread ? I'm pretty sure I'm getting close to getting hardware acceleration working on my nanopc-t4
  11. Cool! I will try building the forked x11 server tonight. The 1080p video playback through fbdev is fine, no dropped frames. Mesa llvm... 1080p OpenGLis a slow slide show. GLmark2-es2 full screen 23 frames /. Sec Whats the benchmark with the Mali Blo s ? Is the Mali T860 blob driver capable at 1080p ?
  12. Yes I did. rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 Dec 19 01:27 libMali.so -> libmali-midgard-t86x-r14p0.so What X11 X server do I need to run ?
  13. @lex I'm trying to use the mali userspace blobs. I used the link you sent. Here's what I see in the Xorg.0.log: I followed the instructions, installed the dependencies and default OpenGLES/GL/CL first. Is this error really due ot the xorg fbdev driver being loaded ?
