  1. 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 }
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. How to use linux-image-current-meson64 package? Is it compatible with x96max tv box?
  5. 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.

  8. Hi, My x96max is suffering from screen tearing and I would like to update the kernel because it looks like g12a vdec is added in the last release candidate and I would like to test it. Is it possible to install the 5.6-rc7 kernel from the last armbian image to the current emmc installed with 5.6-rc5? I imagine to : - copy /mnt/sdcard/rootfs/lib/modules/5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326-arm-64 to /lib/modules/, - copy /mnt/sdcard/boot/config-5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326-arm-64, System.map-5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326-arm-64, vmlinuz-5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326-arm-64, init
  9. Hi, I'm used to compile my kernel on x86 with make bindeb-dpkg and then edit /etc/lilo.conf or create symlink to images and initrd files installed with dpkg. I have no clue how to do it with u-boot on a fat32 /boot partition. I tried with the following procedure (on debian bullseye) : - download sources from kernel.org - cp /boot/config-5.5.0 linux-source-5.5.7/.config - make menuconfig && make bindeb-pkg -j 4 (took 2 hours) - dpkg -i linux-image-5.5.7-xxx.deb (look like debian is able to manage uboot initramfs) - edit the
  10. Hi, /var/log is full. /var/log/journal contains one big file. I executed journalctr --vacuum-time=1h but after a reboot the journal is restored and /var/log full again. How to get rid of it? I'm not familiar with zram and journalctrl but I imagine I can configure something somewhere to avoid getting /var/log full again. Thx.
  11. I mount an usb drive with vfat filesystem on usb3 (personal files, no system). I will try soon booting on it to test your next releases. Can it be the reason for my reboot problem that I have got a usb drive plug during reboot?
  12. Hi, just install Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Arm64_bullseye_current_5.5.1_20200213.img.xz on x905x2 (x96max 4/32, aml g12a) : audio via toslink, ethernet, vfat on usb3 and video on HDMI OK. First time install on emmc. Reboot does not work every time : I have to put back the sdcard sometimes, boot on it and then reboot and remove the sdcard to boot on emmc again. Do I miss something?
  13. Maybe, you have to change the name of the card in the g12_sound.sh script. On a x96 max, I had to change the name to card=G12AX96MAX. A command like aplay -l can help. g12_sound.sh
  14. Just a little feedback, but first a big THX for those images, they are great! I'm using an x96 Max TV box (4/32) which is a Meson g12a also reference as s905x2. (How many names these boxes can get ?!) 1 - I have to flash the box via usb with a recent android "factory" image to get it boot correctly on Armbian. I suppose the boot partition was not great out of the box. 2 - My purpose is to watch movies with vlc. Not all movies play well but with the 5.5.0-rc1 image I've got best results under X with panfrost module loaded and vout set to xcb_x11. At
