  1. I can confirm that the kernel doesn't have /dev/kvm. Or would I need to load a special module for this? It would be nice to have this enabled by default in the newer kernel.
  2. I understand acceleration with Gallium3D is being mainlined and would only appear oob in the future, but then basic OpenGL should be covered. (Accelerated upscaling.) Is KVM enabled already for the Armbian kernels? Yes, it's likely there's another chip for the VPU then. It uses Mali for 3D at least and I guess 2D as well (if it's not in software). The TV runs an X.org server with the mali module (Samsung H series).
  3. Great, maybe I'll try the new kernel. I'm not sure if it will provide me with benefits already. I'd like to have some official OpenGL support and/or KVM (hypervisor) support. I'm using the device as a desktop connected to my TV. Most of the videos I can watch directly on the TV (which happens to use the same Mali GPU), so I don't really need the Tinker Board for that.
  4. If I understand correctly, Armbian does not provide the userspace needed for the VPU support yet either? I do not think I have been using this feature at least. Are there clear advantages to use the 4.19 kernel over the 4.4 one? I noticed I just received a new version of armbian-config btw.
  5. I'm using Armbian on a Tinker Board S. I did the installation back when the 4.4 kernel was still the default one. I expected that I'd get the newer 4.19 kernel by using 'apt update && apt dist-upgrade' at some point as it would become the new stable. This does not seem to be the case however, as I see the new downloads use 4.19 by default, but the stable package still points to a 4.4 kernel. Is it recommended to just move up by installing the kernel package with the next suffix or are there still reasons to wait with upgrading?
