    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    In my case dmix don't work correct on s905x device. I did not solve this problem, because these devices rarely need to mix sound from several sources.

    It's pulseaudio problem i saw this problem very often but if delet pulseaudio and alsa-utils problem was gone... But, without pulseaudio in linux(read as alsa) no easy way to use sound mixing(just one sound from one source in same time)

    yep, it's just different version of libmali(mali-5...mali-7) @shippy What kind of problems do you have in kodi? I see low cpu usage in h264/1080p so hw decoding and acceleration work correct in armbian/kodi

    FAQ in first message "9. If after 7-10 minutes on the monitor not to receive any messages on system startup. Turn off TV box and add in manual in the first partition (FAT) the file "dtb.img". On the media there is a directory dtb from where you can take the files and copy them to the root of the renaming of "dtb.img". Need to pick up the option for the file system will run. Pay attention, after you add\change the dtb file, you need to try to run the system and waiting to run 7-10 minutes. If not happened, repeat with a different dtb file." I would add that you may try all the appropriate soc models of your box and ram volume. If you rewrite cinamon DE with gles support...)) https://doc.qt.io/qt-5.10/topics-graphics.html Few days ago i install to nand debian 5.41.1 from armbian-config. And you still don't post error massage so i don't know what kind of help you want, sorry if this is rude.

    Specialy for this after img burning you can see boot partition with all necessary DTB, hdmi.sh etc. What do you mean by acceleration? HW compositing in DE? As i say gles unsuported by all composit managers. If you mean hw acceleration in qt5, it's another difficult task. Did you try nand_sata_install? Armbian-config? If you have trouble post some error masage, logs or othe important information if you want help.

    In this topic from 50 pages. i think 5 or more with like you question and answer... Correct for you android image, but not for image with kernel 4.9.x for example... Can compositing from popular DE use gles? Or you need mali for some specific use keys(like qt)?

    If you as i'm have some problem with arm64 chromium, some hint how get armhf browser in stretch(in stretch chromium:armhf from repo don't work). Before start update you system apt update && apt upgrade. Download deb package chromium-browser:armhf and chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra:armhf from ppa like https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/xenial/armhf/chromium-browser/65.0.3325.181-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 then install it with $ sudo dpkg -i *.deb and install dependencies $ sudo apt-get -f install . If you haven't any armh package before all works fine.
  11. Try steps from s90xx instructions. Just try different dtb files.
  12. For me "The armbian u-boot built-in image is not used. "... But I think that some major release need built-in u-boot. And most of minor or test doesn't need it.

    1. Some software you can update via apt from ubuntu/debian repos, but specific system component balbes150 compile witch patch from sources when build new image, If you have time and resources, you can create you own repo, compile this package and give it to other user via apt) 2. Kodi have great documentation basically you need compile it for framebufer 4. Main problem when you watch video in windowed mode it's scaling and color conversion with default mpv settings it requires a lot of cpu resources. 4.2. Mainline kernel good for some project, but not for desktop usage now. If you play video with mpv, and video resolution not same as you screen resolution you can reduce framedrop and cpu usage if try different scale method.. example screen resolution 720p test file http://www.digital-digest.com/movies/Star_Wars_The_Last_Jedi_1080p_Theatrical_Trailer.html play in fullscreen 1280x720 First - play with fast scale method --sws-scaler=fast-bilinear - 150 frame droped during 150sec of video, second - play video with default scaling method - 253 frame drops during 12sec of video. Some light test ram consuming and perfomance arm64 and armhf browser chromium 63... armhf arm64

    Can i use Gnome or KDE on Armbian ?

    Try add ppa kubuntu-ppa/backports and apt-get install kubuntu-desktop... Looks like it have prebuid arm64 and armhf packages. But, better if you build all the necessary packages for yourself.
