    I will double check this, but my "Le Potato" board seems to have no trouble with 4K screens (I don't often test this feature, it's my main monitor, I don't have a second test monitor so the test is a little disruptive of my work flow)
     
    [edit[ It took it a long time to bring up the desktop on this 5.3 RC kernel, but Le Potato:

    Thanks goes to @Neil Armstrong and BayLibre, they've been handling mainlining Amlogic.  I simply curate any additional patches and keep things playing nice with the build system.

    A very thank you to TonyMac32 and the great Armbian comunity!
     
    I've compiled the desktop image with no special options (just select the target) and everything is running very nice.
    The CPU clock is set to max 1.5 GHz, slightly overclocked but it runs without headsink around 50-60 °C on high loads the temperatur rise up to around 65-68 °C in my case.
    OpenGL (glxgears) and Gles2 (es2gears) runs fine, even the WebGL in Chromium is supported.
    Video is not HW accelerated in included mpv and Chromium, I think there are any patches needed, but its ok at the moment.
     
    I have only one problem, there is no audio. Only the DummyOutput is present. aplay -l says no soundcards found...
    dmesg has no message related to "sound" or "audio". USB soundcard works pretty well but is not that great experiene
     
    Can someone give me a hint to get sound working? load missing modules etc.?
     
    For easy testing, the image i compiled can be downloaded here (7zip file): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Xl-4_R1aolxJMZFqlZdb0voNxOxbJ4PC

    OK, so, if you are the sort to build it yourself, you can.  It's under WIP/CSC, and is currently kernel 5.2.y.  You can do a couple things, one is to flash the image (using etcher) to a USB keyfob, the other is to update your firmware, then use a USB A to A cable from the closest USB port to the IR sensor.  Power up, hitting escape to interrupt the boot process, then type in
     
    ums 0 mmc 0 to get the device to show up on the host computer.  The use etcher to flash the image right to the eMMC on the La Frite.

    Maybe, maybe not. If their CompaTability nonsense can simply be ignored, and the ARM cores are in control, then yes. If VC6 is running the show, it is the same. :-/

    TonyMac32 reacted to sgjava in User Space IO is Python 3 and Java 8 bindings for user space GPIO, SPI, I2C, PWM and Serial interfaces   
    The main thing for me is I wanted something more portable than RPi.GPIO, so that I can run  the same code on multiple SBCs without coding to a Pi specific API. Plus I wanted to cover the JVM in addition to Python 3 and C. Now I can pick what language makes sense in the context of the project instead of the API driving that (i.e. RPi.GPIO == Python only). Secondly, by using libgpiod for GPIO I'm insulating myself from all the low level coding and making GPIO portable.
     
    To me it depends on the project. If I'm doing something from scratch (which I usually am) then I will gravitate to my library since I can port it to a different language or SBC easily. If something I'm working on has a RPi.GPIO or WiringPi dependency then I'll probably use those to save the effort and not reinvent the wheel. If I use luma.oled for instance then It's going to be a Python project. I can use Userspace IO's Python API for GPIO in addition to driving a OLED display with luma.oled.

    Ideal for today (if you have the means\opportunity to buy it within 120-130)
    Many different TV boxes passed through my hands. This model, in my opinion, is one of the best among TV boxes in terms of cost/result ratio. This is one of the rare models in which you do not need to finish anything yourself. It even universal multi-download will go directly to the firmware. This is a boring model, you will have nowhere to put your hands to improve and redo something.

    - 4 big cores on 28 nm, see the Tinker Board for a lesson in cooling that form factor.  (the Pi seems oddly underclocked, if I'm being honest, a 3288 will go 1.8 GHz, @wtarreau will tell you 2.0+)
     
    - As far as USB3/Gb, the tunnel-vision Pi people would have seen an insane improvement with just 4x USB2 on their own channels and a 100 Mb PHY.  So yes, they are going to think they're lighting the world on fire performance wise.
     
    - That USB-C does not appear to be intelligent PD type, so I'd be interested to see when people use smart supplies with it, if it will run on the 500 mA they'll probably limit to.  (correct me if I've gotten it mixed up)
     
    It looks more interesting than the Pi 3, I bought a few 3's and have since let them rot.  I still used a 2 until recently for music.
