    TonyMac32 got a reaction from lafalken in RK3328 Kernel   
    Dev (4.12-rc1) will build now.  Note that I changed only what was needed to make it build, so some of the patches may not be needed/may not help/etc.
     
    @Myy I had to take out the post-mali UMP patch, UMP is failing to build for some reason or another on 4.12 using this build system. 
     
    Otherwise it appears to be at the same level of functionality as 4.11, although I did notice a marked improvement in USB audio (external cards, not the built-in codec), even though it does still try to blow my eardrums out of my head using the browser with certain source materials.  (I haven't tried to mess with PA yet).
     
    I am building a "Hat" or "Shield" or (more likely) "tombstone" for the board to see if I can power it via the gpio pins and avoid the micro USB.  If it powers on with a smaller supply, I'll build to suit the Odroid XU4 4A adapter.  (Obviously this board is going to be trouble power wise, however, since I've already got one I'm going to make it work for me)
     
    OK, back to the job that pays me.  ;-)

    BTW: I don't want to discourage anyone working on this board and further improving support. It's just me giving up on this hardware since ASUS performs so lousy (wrt deal with 3rd parties wanting to do exactly that: improving software support for their hardware). So as a last hint: since I believe the only really interesting use cases for this board are 'Desktop replacements' you should focus on this when experimenting with different cpufreq governors. Most desktop tasks benefit a lot from cpufreq being ramped up as quick as possible. Also have a look at: https://forum.armbian.com/index.php?/topic/4246-can-improve-the-desktop-performance/ (though I believe it's also important to improve IO behaviour of browsers)

    I am going to attempt to put the reboot patch in there tonight and get some more dts work done, I'm afraid none of the rockchip wifi system interface is built into the 4.11 kernel.  I'll take a look at 4.12 to see how much work I want to put into it, and of course look at some other rockchip-oriented kernels to see if they have it implemented or not.  Remember we don't have working BT in the 4.4 either.  And then there's the sound issue, which should just be an ALSA configuration and maybe a PA fix, if someone else wanted to start looking into that.  ;-)

    I'm using some cables I spec'd online, I can' tremember the exact source, however their voltage drop is minimal and so far they've worked well.  That said I'd prefer a better solution, if someone were to take care to use adequate protection, it looks like putting 5V on the GPIO (pins 2-3) will supply VCC_SYS, which is what the RK808 uses to get all the system voltages.  You'd only be missing the surge suppressor, current limiter, and usb charge detector. (that one might be a sticking point, I think it might signal power OK)

    The op points are in the device tree, it only has op points to 1.608 GHz.  I have seen 1.8 working, I didn't add it to the tree because I was not certain they all had the -C like mine and didn't want to cause a major issue.  So far I've seen them all be -C's however, anyone want to chime in if they do not?

    Uploading patch to fix reboot on Tinker board 4.4 kernel.  The miqi must not use vmmc or vqmmc supplies, or else it would also be affected.  The shutdown sequence turns the SD card off completely before reboot, and fails to reset to 3.3 volts from 1.8 (for high-speed cards)

    Built, no longer getting the "error, address not set" on the ethernet at boot.  Getting late, can't dig in much further but I'd guess it's a success.

    I would guess.  The info I've found for both drivers was that they were I2C only, so I'm poking through the Tinker OS 1.4 kernel for some insight, if any is to be had.

    Thanks @Myy, I was actually looking at your repo last night, I'll give it a look later today after work.
     
    In other news, it looks like the basic stuff will be in Kernel 4.12, including the wifi driver, albeit the old one (not sure why). However they've changed everything to tinker board from miniarm, so we'll have to adjust for that.

    On a better note, I've hijacked the miqi device tree ( @Igor, I'm not sure how but I missed your response way back about stealing the Miqi one).  It (the kernel) did get mad about the storage situation, and the dts format likewise is more like the rockchip-linux model than it is like the 4.4 miqi setup, which most likely explains the rockchip-linux setup.  
     
    [edit]  So mangling the miqi one didn't work out, it was getting messier by the second.  I did, however, decide to just stuff the Eddie Cai patch for the tinker board in there, renaming it miniarm, and it worked out.  Has 1080p desktop and not a lot else.  The LED's work...  ;-)
     
    [final edit]   This image video output is extremely smooth, much better than the 4.4 based image.  I'm able to use Plex Web to play videos in a 2/3 screen sized window smoothly.

    Tinker OS is the only distribution to use UART 1 as the communications port.  All others I've tried, including Armbian, use Uart 2, pins 32 and 33.  I have an FTDI Friend and a little pigtail harness I made for that purpose, I've been using it to debug since I became involved, see:

    Found a GIC-related patch on RK3288 (and actually a bunch of other) SoC's concerning interface size, https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/387720c93812f1e702c20c667cb003a356e24a6c .  Building the rk3288 one, doubt I'll see anything new and different, but thought I'd give you guys a heads up, I see exynos and allwinner in the list as well.

    Looking through commits at rockchip, there are quite a few small error corrections in the rk3288.dtsi, I'm collecting them, and I'll clean up my patches accordingly.

    OK, after patching the Rockchip-wlan Kconfig and Makefiles, and updating the driver, then adding a fix found in a patch on the rockchip-linux site, I have functional WiFi. 
     
    So, a silly question, but where is the config saved to after I make kernel config changes?  That's all I need to get a patch submitted.
     
    [edit]  oof, just yanked the resulting patch out of the folder, it's 10 MB.   Soooo, what should I do with that?  I'll see if there's a smarter way to replace the driver...
     
    [edit2]  The driver in the miqi distro is v4.3.9 (Sep. 2014) I'm not sure finding the patches will help given the advanced age and huge differences.

    Right now only the default works, I haven't gotten the device tree into the dev kernel yet.  Transplanting the compiled device tree from the default into the dev is a messy patch just to see it work.
