  1. Linux renegade 4.4.174-rockchip64 #17 SMP Sun Feb 10 20:05:27 CET 2019 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS" NAME="Ubuntu" VERSION="18.04.2 LTS (Bionic Beaver)" ID=ubuntu ID_LIKE=debian PRETTY_NAME="Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS" VERSION_ID="18.04"
  2. Icons are no longer corrupted, even dragging. Everything works fine now. **Icons do get corrupted once they are selected or dragged but that's about it. **UPDATE** - So, not satisfied with my testing, I have done a (sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade) on the device, then re-installed the media script with (sudo sh ./media-script) Then, installed system with Glamor and then re-ran the script and installed all the others excluding system and rebooted. Compositing is ON All working! Very happy about this. :-) No delays in scrolling, nothing disappears in windows however, yes, Icons do go away if dragged to the desktop. I will try with GST player MPV (GBM) - Results- Desktop Icons are missing with Compositing ON. Only seems to affect the Desktop. All other windows seem fine. The Icons are there until another windows is moved over the top. For some reason, they do not re-draw. Scrolling is nice and snappy, no lag. (Cannot see bad delays with compositing ON) Chromium is not working with 32-bit streaming as you suggested. Standard Chromium is faster however, not accelerated. CPU 89 % MPV (GBM) not loading. (Will need to look into this further.) "Rockchip Gst Player" is not loading the video at all. just locks up. (Will need to look into this further.) Maybe there is something in the syslogs. I will check later. The only thing I found in syslog while trying to play the 1080p video using MPV (GBM) Mar 29 05:18:10 localhost kernel: [ 3751.852218] dwhdmi-rockchip ff3c0000.hdmi: failed to get edid Mar 29 05:18:11 localhost kernel: [ 3752.852253] dwhdmi-rockchip ff3c0000.hdmi: failed to get edid Mar 29 05:18:12 localhost systemd[1]: serial-getty@ttyS2.service: Service hold-off time over, scheduling restart. MPV works if not using the (GBM) version. RockChip GST player has similar errors: Mar 29 05:26:24 localhost systemd[1]: Started Serial Getty on ttyS2. Mar 29 05:26:32 localhost kernel: [ 4254.111131] dwhdmi-rockchip ff3c0000.hdmi: failed to get edid Mar 29 05:26:33 localhost kernel: [ 4255.111221] dwhdmi-rockchip ff3c0000.hdmi: failed to get edid Mar 29 05:26:34 localhost kernel: [ 4256.111258] dwhdmi-rockchip ff3c0000.hdmi: failed to get edid Mar 29 05:26:35 localhost systemd[1]: serial-getty@ttyS2.service: Service hold-off time over, scheduling restart.

  3. Just to recap for those that don't want to watch the video, here are my findings. Using board - Rockchip 3328 4GB DD4 Renegade (ROC-RK3328-CM) by FireFly. OS - Armbian_5.75_Renegade_Debian_stretch_default_4.4.174_desktop.7z https://dl.armbian.com/renegade/Ubuntu_bionic_default_desktop.7z Steps taken: - Install default Armbian image as seen above. - Download and extract JMCC's media Enhancement script ready for installation. - Update Armbian 5.75 image with apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade - Re-Ran media-script and firstly, only selected System and installed Glamor. - Re-ran media-script again, selected ALL applications except System (because I did it in previous step) - reboot the device Results: - Icon corruption has now been fixed. The desktop is still nice and snappy. (Compositing is ON) - MVP player now plays 1080p sample video with CPU to spare. (acceleration seems to be working) - MVP works well in window resized mode or full screen. Both seem fine with CPU to spare! *- MVP 4k video is still not working properly in either Windowed or Full screen. - Chromium seems smoother in 720p mode, still a bit flakey, however, instead of crashing a refresh can be done. (CPU usage too high.) - Chromium is no good in 1080p or above in full screen or windowed. (CPU usage is too high, HW acceleration must be not working.)
  4. Here is the CPU usage using Renegade-4GB and Glamour desktop with streaming video from youtube Full screen and window. I seriously am yet to find any issue with Glamour. Chromium is very temperamental and doesn't seem to be using gl at all. **Icons do get corrupted once they are selected or dragged but that's about it. **UPDATE** - So, not satisfied with my testing, I have done a (sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade) on the device, then re-installed the media script with (sudo sh ./media-script) Then, installed system with Glamor and then re-ran the script and installed all the others excluding system and rebooted. Compositing is ON This has fixed the Icon corruption seen in my previous version and, MVP now uses HW acceleration. This means something was broken in my previous attempt so, I am going to re-make another Test Video and upload it to google drive for you to see. I will also re-test Chromium. Let's see! 1080P sample found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8leorFMy0rg Here's my proof test video. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-e0a3tyRRL3B2XWbl2dvvXeGcMazyajp
  5. Here is the CPU usage using Renegade-4GB and Glamour desktop with streaming video from youtube Full screen and window. I seriously am yet to find any issue with Glamour. Chromium is very temprimental and doesnt seem to be using gl at all. Icons do get corrupted once they are selected or dragged but that's about it. Sample test media is free from https://4kmedia.org/ultra-hd-hdr-samsung-4k-demo-wonderland/ Video of Renegade with Glamour trying to play content is below: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1wbbn2TqNwCRdSPG1tVvLAIMUro0MHkqy Video plays using MPV even in 4k sample media, saved to miniSD however, its terribly slow. Maybe due to the screen re-sizing required while it's playing. 1080P samples found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8leorFMy0rg CPU is way too high for assisted video, however, I can stilll use the Renegade while playing video. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-0WFxdCQ4X6pML5P0dFi2Bb8A9ri8v60
  6. Glamour works fine for me with a Renegade-4GB and compositing (ON) If I turn it off, then windows are terribly slow. Chromium crashes after just a few mins, htop shows FULL CPU usage and I am overclocked to 1.5, no matter if it's 720p or 1080p, CPU is 100% Anyway, here is a video of Glamour being used without any problems at all. Stable as a rock. Chrome just quits however, my video stops. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lOw1I3_ZxoAzUrRKaL1joGYONVrFlyia
  7. Using 5.75 image Glamor: The tweaked X server that you included is just as snappy IF you turn compositing back ON in the windowing settings. This is the opposite setting for armsoc. If you leave it disabled, the screens are horribly delayed when dragging. I have just tested both and Glamor is as fast as Armsoc on my 4GB renegade when the compositing is enabled. Chromium is still having issues playing anything 1080p from youtube (Just running chromium-streaming from GUI) Trying to change settings in Chromium-streaming makes it crash (probably known, as you stated some web pages will be broken) Audio out from the audio jack is still not working. HDMI audio works fine. - Bottom USB2 sometimes doesn't work. Unplug / replug keyboard fixes this once the OS has finished loading. Thank you for your efforts here. :-) This device is almost usable because of this. Once browsing is fixed, I'tgoing to be my daily Linux box!
