  1. I didnot find a driver for MT7668RSN at armbian Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.038_Aml-s9xxx_eoan_current_5.5.0-rc6_desktop_20200205 . There is little info. about this chip on Internet either . But it works at the orignal android with kernel 3.14. Will it be avail. at the coming new armbian release ? Regards ! Guofu Han P.S. if this is not the right place to post it , please help me to move it . Thanks !
  2. I installed armbian_eoan_desktop_5.5 on my set-top box and updated mesa to 20.1-devl . But I found out the Xfce4 desktop is a little bit larger than my TV screen . I checked the Application->setting->display and used xrandr -q to print out the parameters : Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 3840 x 2160 HDMI-1 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 575mm x 323mm 1920x1080 60.00*+ 60.00 50.00 59.94 24.00 23.98 1920x1080i 60.00 50.00 59.94 1680x1050 59.88 1280x1024 60.02 1280x960 60.00 1360x768 60.02 1280x800 59.91 1280x720 60.00 50.00 59.94 1024x768 60.00 800x600 60.32 56.25 720x576 50.00 720x480 59.94 But I found out nothing . Is this a bug in mesa ?
  3. Thanks for your contribution ! May I apply this update to armbian debian bullseye too ?
  4. Thanks for sharing your knowledge ! I am going to check out the branch linux-5.6.y from https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux.git . But I had a problem to find out the kernel source version for the 'stable', 'current' and 'dev' builds : when I checked config/sources/families/meson-gxl.conf , I didnot find out the version name . Which patch version ( meson64-current , meson64-dev , meson64-legacy ) should I apply to that branch please ?
  5. Thanks for the tip. I tried to build the latest mesa 20.0.2 on my armbian Eoan with Linux 5.5.0-rc6-aml-s9xxx but failed . After the installation , the keyboard and mouse are very sluggish . Could you please tell me how to build it on armbian ? Regards !
  6. After the firmware installed , I tried mpv with option "vo=gpu gpu-context=drm hwdec=auto" , but it failed to start : [cplayer] v: Waiting for scripts...

  7. I saw there is some firmware at https://github.com/LibreELEC/meson-firmware/tree/master/meson . Just wonder if any of you has apply it to s905x tv box ? Does it utilize HW video decoder to play video ? Regards ! Guofu Han
  8. Thanks for the tips. Did you mean I should run the script https://packagecloud.io/install/repositories/zhangn1985/mesa/script.deb.sh on Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.037_Aml-s9xxx_buster_current_5.5.0-rc6_desktop_20200205.img ? Could you please shed some light on how to apply the ( which ? ) vdec patches ? Regards !
  9. @ning : Glad to hear that . Could you please tell me how to apply the codec to current mainline armbian OS ? I installed the latest armbian ( Armbian_20.02.0 with eoan desktop ) at my s905x tv box and I would like to try it . Thankyou !
  10. For reason I can't explain here , I had to run a video player at Non-X window OS ( Armbian_5.96_Aml-g12_Ubuntu_bionic_default_5.3.0_server ) at a S905X tv-box. I tried to play a mp4 video ( H.264 + AAC ) at the video player ( mpv ) with drm driver. The quality is just so so. Is there any other driver recommended ? Did Amlogic provide a linux video driver which can hard-decode h.264 ? Regards !
  11. How to enter armbian ? I installed Armbian_5.94_Aml-g12_Ubuntu_bionic_default_5.2.1_20190821 at a corrupted android stb ( s905x , 2g ddr3 , 8g emmc ). The original android system was damaged somehow and it halted during the launch process. But fortunately , its bootloader is good. So I stopped the uboot process when it is going to launch the kernel and installed armbian 5.94 with the autoscr cmd. The armbian system runs smoothly at the u-disc except for the following error messages at its first run : -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Enable G12 sound. AMLG12 amixer: Unable to find simple control 'FRDDR_A SRC 1 EN Switch',0 amixer: Unable to find simple control 'FRDDR_A SINK 1 SEL',0 amixer: Unable to find simple control 'FRDDR_B SRC 1 EN Switch',0 amixer: Unable to find simple control 'FRDDR_B SINK 1 SEL',0 amixer: Unable to find simple control 'FRDDR_C SRC 1 EN Switch',0 amixer: Unable to find simple control 'FRDDR_C SINK 1 SEL',0 amixer: Unable to find simple control 'TOHDMITX I2S SRC',0 amixer: Unable to find simple control 'TOHDMITX Switch',0 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- But I went on with the installation of armbian to the emmc of the stb and the installation went on smoothly . But it seems I did not clean up the android bootargs properly and the system runs into the recovery ( ? ) section of the original android system ( ? ) . I would like to get rid of the android system completely and play with armbian 5.94 . Could you please shed some light on it ? Enclosed please find the boot log : printenv.txt
  12. What is wrong with my compiled kernel ? I played with the official img : Armbian_5.77_Aml-s905_Ubuntu_bionic_default_5.0.2_20190401.img.xz on my usb stick and everything is good. However , a fter I replaced the original zImage with the one I compiled , there are a lot of failed to start services . The compiled kernel is built in the followin g way : git clone https://github.com/150balbes/Amlogic_s905-kernel.git git checkout 20190319 copy the official kernel config : config-5.0.2-aml-s905 to Amlogic_s905-kernel/.config export ARCH=arm64 export CROSS_COMPILE=/home/hanguofu/gcc-linaro-7.3.1-2018.05-x86_64_aarch64-linux-gnu/bin/aarch64-linux-gnu- and I built the kernel with a make flag : LOCALVERSION="-aml-s905" The compiled kernel has the same size as the zImage at the Armbian_5.77_Aml-s905_Ubuntu_bionic_default_5.0.2_20190401.img.xz However , the compiled kernel is not as good as the oringinal one . The startup process ( running at the USB stick ) shows a lot of failed services but it finally reached the login prompt. Is there sth. wrong with my built process ?
  13. Where is /boot/uInitrd ? I tried to build a specific version 5.77 myself . So I checked out https://github.com/150balbes/Build-Armbian and reset the header ( commit ) to f4dfe5f4bcfd261b10954504bc1be0f7537ddb69 ( the one dated 20190323 ) However , the generated img. does not has the uInitrd : ( excerpt from build log ) sent 350.16M bytes received 262.89K bytes 77.87M bytes/sec total size is 355.44M speedup is 1.01 [ .... ] Copying files to /boot directory symlink has no referent: "/home/hanguofu/build_armbian_577/Build-Armbian/.tmp/rootfs-default-aml-s905-bionic-no/boot/uInitrd" 54.52M 100% 302.10MB/s 0:00:00 (xfr#78, to-chk=0/82) The file list at /boot : Mode LastWriteTime Length Name ---- ------------- ------ ---- d----- 2019/6/6 14:34 .Thumbnail d----- 2019/6/6 14:34 Android d----- 2019/6/6 14:34 dtb d----- 2019/6/6 14:34 dtb-5.0.2-aml-s905 d----- 2019/6/6 14:34 extlinux d----- 2019/6/6 13:10 LOST.DIR -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 829 aml_autoscript -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 757 aml_autoscript.cmd -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 651 aml_autoscript.zip -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 1536 armbian_first_run.txt.template -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 4882 boot-desktop.png -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 38518 boot.bmp -a---- 2019/6/1 15:56 160374 config-5.0.2-aml-s905 -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 521 emmc_autoscript -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 449 emmc_autoscript.cmd -a---- 2019/6/1 16:01 7658731 initrd.img-5.0.2-aml-s905 -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 901632 s905x-uboot.img -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 1765 s905_autoscript -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 1693 s905_autoscript.cmd -a---- 2019/6/1 15:56 4029826 System.map-5.0.2-aml-s905 -a---- 2019/6/1 16:00 215 uEnv.ini -a---- 2019/6/1 15:56 20090888 vmlinuz-5.0.2-aml-s905 -a---- 2019/6/1 15:56 20090888 zImage Is there sth.

  14. Thanks for the tip. The point is : I would like to make change to the U-boot ( /home/hanguofu/Build-Armbian/cache/sources/u-boot-aml-s9xxx) instead of kernel ( /home/hanguofu/Build-Armbian/cache/sources/LINUX_DEFAULT/20180925 ). How to tell the tool to patch U-boot instead of the kernel please ? I didnot find out such an option or compile switch.
  15. I run Armbian tool ( checked out from https://github.com/150balbes/Build-Armbian )with command ./compile.sh CREATE_PATCHES="yes" , but only see the request for patch the kernel : [ warn ] Make your changes in this directory: [ /home/hanguofu/Build-Armbian/cache/sources/LINUX_DEFAULT/20180925 ] [ warn ] Press <Enter> after you are done [ waiting ] I would like to patch the U-boot ( u-boot-aml-s9xxx ) instead of kernel . Should I manually add the patch to the userpatches/u-boot directory for my aml-s9xxx board ?
