    Tido reacted to FHam in MyGica 1960 S912B trying hard to get Ubuntu installed   
    Thanks Tido, Seriously, I wish I was kidding.  I have already followed the steps prior to your message.  and I get the same error regardless of the dtb file I use.  I have renamed and tried both u-boot-s905x-s912 and the s922 --> renamed to u-boot.ext
     
    See the screen capture below.  Note I have even tried copying the files and renaming it to dtb.img and I get the same crappy error message.  The 1st screen capture shows the use of the "meson-gxl-s905x-p212.dtb" which btw like all makes no difference.

    You have an error in your extlinux.conf: you should comment the rk3399 lines and uncomment 1 line of amlogic starting with fdt and the last one starting with append.
    Here is the one I use for s912 boxes (you may change the dtb if the generic q200 is not relevant):
    And you may also change the extlinux.conf-menu file:

    Tido reacted to guidol in Create an ftp server in tvbox   
    In the past I did also install vsftpd, but some time ago I did see that the package oppenssh not only has openssh-client / openssh-server...

    As third part there is the openssh-sftp-server which armbian does install.
    So I never installed vsftpd additionally again

    The 3 packets in armbian (on my installation) are:
     
    openssh-client 1:8.2p1-4ubuntu0.1 arm64 secure shell (SSH) client, for secure access to remote machines openssh-server 1:8.2p1-4ubuntu0.1 arm64 secure shell (SSH) server, for secure access from remote machines openssh-sftp-server 1:8.2p1-4ubuntu0.1 arm64 secure shell (SSH) sftp server module, for SFTP access from remote machines An idea for the configuration of openssh-sftp-server could be found at

    Agree. Maybe things should not be pushed so hard. Not only there is (from gut feels) little effect on (to use @Tido's scheme for simplification) patch releases, it also increases the administration effort as @Igor noted.
    What about this? Do not push out intermediate releases (like 20.08.4) UNLESS there are critical issues like board does not boot.
    Everything else can most likely be pushed via apt kernel upgrade anyways and will be merged in the next 3-month-release as well.
    If somebody wants a provided fix faster they have to build their own either image or kernel package from master or wait. No discussion.
     
    my two cents.

    For a common understanding..  semantic versioning   8.5.4 == MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH - for a programm, not a distribution. But, people really care which version they have and they want the latest an greatest - as we know from questions in the forum.
    Ubuntu LTS on the other hand fixes stuff and after a period they release 20.04.1  that incorporates all the fixes. However, I guess your release cycle is too short.

    Tido reacted to JMCC in Rock64: Hardware acceleration with FFmpeg   
    Currently, FFmpeg only supports HW decoding for rockchips, not encoding. Acceleration on mainline kernel is a work in progress, so I still recommend the legacy 4.4 kernel for video tasks.
     
     
    You need the legacy kernel for these codecs to work. And, again, they are only for decoding.
     
    If you want HW encoding, then you need to use gstreamer with the rockchip plugin.
