  1. Hi , hexdump : Do you know the related code about setting video mode ? I would like to modify the legacy u-boot to make it right
  2. Thanks for sharing your experience ! Did you make the wifi works at X96 Max Plus too ? As much as I know , X96 Max plus comes with rtl8822cs which is different from the one at HK1Box . Does the wifi works at HK1Box with Armbian ?
  3. I try to compile armbian from git : https://github.com/150balbes/Build-Armbian/ ( should I use https://github.com/armbian/build instead ? ) However , I did not find the board option for Khadas Vim1 . Which board would be identical to it ? Does the https://github.com/armbian/build has this board ? Regards !
  4. Just curious , Does wifi 88x2ce/8822cs work in Android ? If yes , how fast is it ?
  5. Hi @balbes150, Would you mind telling me how to generate the u-boot-s905x-s912 at boot dir. of armbian release ? I cannot find any source/repository about it . Thanks !
  6. I would like to know the content of u-boot-s905x-s912 and u-boot-s905x2-s922 at the boot dir. of armbian release . Is there a tool to de-compile these script to plain text ? Sorry if this question had been asked or answered . I didnot find any clues from searching at this forum. Thanks !
  7. 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 !
  8. 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
  9. Thanks for your contribution ! May I apply this update to armbian debian bullseye too ?
  10. 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 ?
  11. 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 !
  12. 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... [ytdl_hook] v: script-opts/ytdl_hook.conf not found. [ytdl_hook] v: lua-settings/ytdl_hook.conf not found. [stats] v: script-opts/stats.conf not found. [stats] v: lua-settings/stats.conf not found.

  13. 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
  14. 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 !
  15. @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 !
  16. 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 !
  17. 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 : -----------------------------------------------------------
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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 ?
  22. I installed Armbian_5.60_Aml-s9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_default_4.18.7 to the EMMC of my s905x TV Box , so far so good . Yesterday I trimmed some drivers and built the kernel successfully . The following packages are generated with armbian build tool : linux-dtb-aml-s9xxx_5.60_arm64.deb linux-headers-aml-s9xxx_5.60_arm64.deb linux-libc-dev-aml-s9xxx_5.60_arm64.deb linux-image-aml-s9xxx_5.60_arm64.deb linux-source-default-aml-s9xxx_5.60_all.deb I am going to ssh into my box and run "dpkg -i " commands to update kernel . Is it safe to do so while Armbian is ru
  23. I put the img. Armbian_5.59_Aml-s9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_default_4.18.0_20180823.img into a usb disc. and boot it successfully with my TV box. I havenot flashed the emmc yet . Another word , I played with Armbian installed at the U-disc. However , when I tried to upload/download files to/from the box with tool "Xftp 5" ( from NetSarang ) , the tool failed to connected to the box. The box and my pc are in the same local network ( 192.168.0.xxx ) Of course , the ssh service is good and I can log into the box with tool "Xshell 5". Is the ftp service not avail. at the img. ?
  24. I am trying to build 150balbes/Build-Armbian at my Ubuntu18 PC . However , the download process of toolchains are very slow. I had already spent most of the day in it. Unfortunatly , some of the toolchains was downloaded with warnings : [ warn ] Verification failed Could you please tell me the list of all needed toolchains and its source ? I will try to downlaod them in another way. Thanks ! Guofu Han
  25. Since there is a well-known security issue at s905(x) SOCs : https://fredericb.info/2016/10/amlogic-s905-soc-bypassing-not-so.html Is it possible to disable serial console at s905 u-boot ? Does the setting at device tree apply to kernel only or both kernel and u-boot drivers ? Regards ! Guofu Han
