  1. Hi, That's a great peace of informations, thx. If I want to boot from emmc, I have to rename it to u-boot.emmc?
  2. Few days ago linux-image-current.meson64 package from armbian was updated. But I can not manage to boot on it : my screen stay black that's all. I have to come back to the previous version that you can find here : https://us.mirrors.fossho.st/armbian/apt/pool/main/l/linux-5.9.14-meson64/ To avoid future update, I use the following command : sudo apt-mark hold linux-dtb-current-meson64 linux-image-current-meson64 I also try with linux-image-arm64 from debian (bulleyes) which is also a 5.10 kernel. I've got the same results : no boot, black screen.
  3. I came back to kernel 5.9.0 from balbes image but I got this error with mpv after few seconds : DRM_IOCTL_MODE_CREATE_DUMB failed: Cannot allocate memory To avoid this message and enjoy beautiful video playback, I haved to install the following packages (dtb and image, not the headers): https://us.mirrors.fossho.st/armbian/apt/pool/main/l/linux-5.9.14-meson64/
  4. I want to do this so when I install linux-image-current-meson64 or other kernel package I do not have error because it looks like the package's script is expecting a ext3/4 partition.
  5. Hi, I tried but did not manage to boot on the last linux-image-current-meson64 (5.10 kernel) from armbian. I will try soon with the debian linux-image-arm64 and let you know. Regard, Laurent.
  6. If you want those files you can install armbian-firmware-all package. This is what I do here :
  7. Hi everyone, I made some new tests this last weekend and realized what I said was not really true. If you want to use hardware accelerated decoding you need to install armbian-firmware-all (package I just discovered). This package contains the firmware files needed by mpv in /lib/firmware/meson/vdec. Combined with mpv options hwdec-codecs=all and hwdec=auto ( or just v4l2m2m-copy ), cpu usage really drops from 50% to 20% ( and cpu temp from 70c to just over 50c ). But it is a little bugged : no seek forward or backward, and I've got a crach after one hour of movie (just
  8. ok it is not perfect with vlc : if video is not the size of screen the video is cropped and moved up... with mpv it is perfect : you can ssh to your machine, sudo su - vlcd, export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/109 and launch mpv mpv.conf or aliases : function play_movie { sudo su -P -s /bin/bash -c "export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/109 && mpv --sub-auto=all --sub-file-paths=Subs $1" vlcd } function play_serie { sudo su -P -s /bin/bash -c "export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/109 && mpv --sub-auto=exact $1" vlcd }
  9. It is now 2 weeks I run linux-image-current-meson64 with no problems. I manage to get rid of tearing while playing video with vlc by using wayland/weston instead of X11/openbox (picom did not help). While playing video cpu goes from around 40% in X11 to 20% with weston \o/. You can find vlcd.service, scripts and config files in attached files. TODO list : - Move vlcd.service to weston.service and try to replace vlc-xxxx.sh scripts with ~/.config/systemd/vlcd.service - format /boot in ext4 vlcd.service vlcd-start.sh vlcd-stop.sh weston.ini vlcrc
  10. I tried today. To test I use an sd card with last aml/balbes images, chroot to it and apt update apt install linux-image-current-meson64 edit /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf I manage to boot on it. \o/ So I reboot on emmc, backup some original /boot files and install the package. I set manually the package to "install ok installed" in /var/lib/dpkg/status to avoid futur error when updating. Now running on a 5.9.14 kernel. Will see if it is as stable than with 5.9.0 /boot partition (u-boot) can be ext3/4 on x96max?
  11. How to use linux-image-current-meson64 package? Is it compatible with x96max tv box?
  12. Hi, I would like to maintain the kernel version updated on the box (for video reading performance because I still got some stearing when the camera moves horizontaly). Now that there is no more support for amlogic (I can understand why reading the forum), can I use the available bullseye/linux-image-current-meson64 package from the armbian repo (which is now 5.9.6 not 5.9.0)? As I understand is it not that easy to compile a kernel by myself because there is so much patches applied. Best regards, Laurent.
  13. No problem here : ❯ dpkg -i linux-image-current-arm-64_20.05.5_arm64.deb linux-headers-current-arm-64_20.05.5_arm64.deb (Reading database ... 74883 files and directories currently installed.)
