  1. Use CREATE_PATCHES=yes or smth alike, look for usage details in the documentation - it will stop building after applying Armenian’s patches and prompt for editing sources u-boot and kernel, also your changer will be saved as patches.
  2. While ESXi on most (if not all) SBCs sounds like a joke, wouldn’t efi boot help using pci-e cards having efi (eg storage adapters)?
  3. In /home/hts there are two hidden folders: /home/hts/.hts and /home/hts/.xmltv stop tvheadend, tar profile which is in /home/hts like here http:// on another system stop tvheadend, untar profile, start tvheadend. I guess that you will have to manually check that dvb cards are properly mapped
  4. Just copy linux-rockchip64-current.config after your configurations from ./output/config/ to ./userpatches/ and it will be reused for the same family (ie boards within rockchip64 family, but not rk3399)
  5. Igor, would it be possible/easy to roll out headers packages together with new images? Personally I mean rockchip64 which headers are still smth 5.3.y, or should appropriate family header packages for 32 bit architecture (eg rockchip) be used (sorry, but I do not know how header packages differ, just see that size/sha differ for the same kernel version).
  6. FYI, Rock Pi 4B 1.3, though with spi flash soldered and mmc module. Just flashed 19.11.7 with kernel 5.4.8 minimal image. It boots fine. Now installing desktop just to see how it goes. With 19.11.6 somehow could not change root password at first login. BR Max
  7. Please replace CONFIG_MEDIA_SUPPORT=y with CONFIG_MEDIA_SUPPORT=m in configs to allow out of tree V4L drivers compilation and use (DVB in particular). This is probably relevant for all boards. I wrote on my experience here: Regards, Max
  8. Hi, I've tried the same for a while with TBS5580 (dvb-s2/t2/etc usb card) for tinkerboard running ambrian kernel 4.4.y I've used TBS github repo for V4L drives which seems has extra TBS open source drivers added to V4L, but straight building and loading modules did not work - I've got kernel panic containing [ 13.721533] PC is at dvb_usb_fe_wakeup+0x20/0x60 [dvb_usb] [ 13.723656] LR is at dvb_frontend_init+0x28/0x74 [dvb_core] etc. It seems that since 4.4 there were changes in dvb-core and/or dvb-usb making just separately compiled driver modules sometimes not working for older kernels. Therefore in kernel config CONFIG_MEDIA_SUPPORT=y should be CONFIG_MEDIA_SUPPORT=m to support dvb-core as a module rather than "build-in". This allows replacing the "original" dvb-core.ko with dvb-core.ko build fom V4L pack, otherwise there will be a conflict. So you may need to compile kernel (unless CONFIG_MEDIA_SUPPORT is already set to "m" for your board and you already have "stock" dvb-core module) Also (note that this is relevant for my experience, but may apply to you): - there were changes in Kconfig language and "imply" used in one of Kconfigs in /drivers/media does not allow using make menuconfig (for rockchip's 4.4 at least), so I just replaced "imply HWMON" with "select HWMON" in that Kconfig, anyway that driver required higher kernel version - backports patch 4.4 is not needed for rockchip's 4.4 - building the driver it patches will break, so either deselect that driver or comment out the patch in backports.txt with # - I would be careful using make install since it will remove all original media modules including vendor specific, but would manually copy/replace only needed ones and run depmod thereafter PS: I've used ambrian build in VM for kernel, but build V4L on tinkerboard itself to avoid thinking on cross compilation
