    Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x (>= ver 5.55)

    Tested the Armbian_5.76_Aml-s905_Ubuntu_bionic_next_5.0.0-rc7-next-20190219-g43dc36c94-dirty on MXQ Pro + 4k >(S905x), boots fine but USB does not work so unable to log in.

    But it is fairly simple to connect a RJ45->USB network card to any box without ethernet, I use it on my Guleek I8S running Linux Mint 19......

    Woah. Thanks, do you know anything about the 905x2/y2 performance wise? Is it even worth thinking about?

    @balbes150I was looking at this box https://www.aliexpress.com/item/A95X-Plus-Smart-TV-Box-4GB-Amlogic-S905-Y2-Android-8-1-4GB-DDR4-32GB-ROM/32953087994.html?spm=2114.10010108.1000014.2.44b24a952D1axa&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreOtherSeller&scm=1007.13338.115306.0&scm_id=1007.13338.115306.0&scm-url=1007.13338.115306.0&pvid=06e2fa39-0ebf-4815-8644-b60da8d29e59 Will Armbian on it be plain sailing or is there some quirk with the S905Y2 cpu that ruins the fun? And what about the ARM Dvalin MP2 GPU ?

    I have Norwegian ketboard(s), but the one I use for testing is a small simplified wireless keyboard with tackball...

    No I did not copy it from the website I wrote it by hand. I have only one type of ' on my keyboard, except for "

    As I wrote I did exactly that and it worked ;).

    Tested the image on my MiniM8S (s905), ran the script, rebooted no sound, ran update-initramfs -v -c -k 'uname -r' ('uname -r' does not work, had to type the version) still no sound unless I connect an external soundcard via usb. Testvideo plays smooth and nice.

    What's the status for kernel 5? I don't think I'll bother anymore testing kernel 4.x since none of them has sound and some not even booting on my 905's...

    Ah! No maybe not...

    Mmmmm, maybe download the source and compile it yourself?

    That might be due to poor programming in chromium, how does the test video run for you?

    Ok, so I did som testing with the 5.75 S905 images on my MiniM8S (S905). The Ubuntu variant boots from SD-card but complains that it has no support for the cards voltage. Changed to USB boot and is able to start Linux. WiFi works, no BT, no ethernet and no sound. If I connect external soundcard (usb) sound works. With external BT-dongle BT works. Video plays smooth and beautifully also in fullscreen just by doubleclicking the test video. The Debian variant won't boot from SD-card, from USB it seems to start booting but dies after a minute or so.

    @balbes150 No kernel 5 for Armbian 5.75?

    Well that would be great We can only hope...

    I see. Bilinear certainly is faster but not so good quality... Would it not be possible to have the Mali prescale every frame to display resolution in fullscreen mode?

    Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x (>= ver 5.55)

    Well I suspected it to be a scaling problem also, but should not the GPU take care of scaling? Or is it still not used?

    Would be nice if we others could read it

    I see. Pity the manufactureres are not more forthcoming, but so is life, I guess...

    @balbes150 Will this TV Box work well with your image(s) and will the HD be supported? https://www.banggood.com/THL-Super-Box-Amlogic-S912-2GB-RAM-16GB-ROM-TV-Box-Hard-Disk-Case-Smart-APP-Control-p-1323245.html?rmmds=search&ID=47184&cur_warehouse=CN

    Even when I install BT support and connect an external USB BT dongle there is no BT support....

    Done some testing on Armbian_5.73_Aml-s905_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.20.2_desktop_20180129 with my MiniMX-III (S905), WiFi works, no BT, no ethernet and no sound, neither on HDMI nor on SPDIF with connected receiver/speakers. Video seems to play smooth. Same wirh Armbian_5.73_Aml-s905_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.20.2_desktop_20180129.img LIMA except video seems laggy now.

    That's what I said, if gparted cannot see all the partitions it won't work.

    Instead of messing with a big soldering iron on surfacemounted components and potentially ruining the whole board I suggest uou buy an USB WiFi dongle (and possibly a BT dongle)
