Christian_ reacted to martinayotte in How to use microusb port on OrangePi Lite?
Of course, I've shown the source located in kernel tree, not a decompiled version ...
I've also said something wrong : I've a local patch not included in Armbian tree :
You can use that patch if you are doing you own build ...
... or you can tweak your decompile DT to make sure that USB nodes are matching that, or use my own DTB attached, of course after backing up yours first ...

thanks for wonderful collection of prepared packages. Works great.
I just found some improvements. I wanted to let know, so:
Kodi 18.4 with Acceleration
I found newer kodi version - 18.4 with acceleration enabled.
You can download it here:

Widevine and Flash with Chromium 76 from armbian repository
I also found nice way how to get widevine library for latest Chromium browser. It can be extracted from ChromeOS images.
I found how to do it here: https://gist.github.com/ruario/19a28d98d29d34ec9b184c42e5f8bf29
(Actually I am not sure if script works, I just read from script how to do that and did that manually)
This way you can have latest Chromium with widevine working. Do you do not have to use some very old release which can be problematic.
You can use this prepared archive which I made for myself:
Just a tip
I also noticed that many people are getting into trouble with apt update/upgrade, when their packages get overwritten.
But there is nice feature in apt how to solve this. apt-mark hold/unhold is your friend here.
You can freeze updates of kodi, chromium and xorg for example with:
apt-mark hold kodi kodi-bin chromium-browser xserver-common-rockchip xserver-xorg-core-rockchip But use with caution! This will disable updates for mentioned packages until you will update them manually or do not mark them as upgradable (unhold).
Christian_ got a reaction from gounthar in Rock64 hw encoding h264 with gstreamer?
I'm trying to figure out how to use gstreamer to encode h264 video on Rock64 (Rockchip RK3328). I'm using Armbian Bionic 5.60 (stable Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS 4.4.156-rockchip64).
I compiled mpp and gstreamer-rockchip from https://github.com/rockchip-linux and installed both, but I'm still missing mpph264enc, how do I get that?
gst-inspect-1.0 mpph264enc says: No such element or plugin 'mpph264enc'
Many thanks for reading, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Christian_ reacted to chwe in HDMI-Monitor bricked tinkers today (next 5.60)
or... you SSH into a working SBC and use it's spare UART pins to ttl into the non-working SBC...
Likely to be one of the most silly things I've ever did with an SBC.. But hey, it works... (at least @martinayotte will like it. )
do we have UART2 and UART3? at least on mine (4.14) we use UART3... @TonyMac32? Or was it back then when we used UART2? Can't remember anymore..
Christian_ got a reaction from Igor in [SOLVED] RT5572 Wireless Adapter does not work on my Rock64
The problem was the wifi region setting unset, this prevented to tune the radio to channel 1.
Christian_ reacted to guidol in ESPTerm - a nice Idea fore the Debug-Port
Yesterday I came across the following - for me - fine project (Demo-Page):
ESPTERM Release 2.3.0 Cricket
Its a VT100-Webpage-Terminal on a ESP8266-Microcontroller which opens a Accesspoint.
You could connect via this VT100-Webpage-Terminal to the TTL-Port of the ESP8266.
TTL-Connection is done (like allways in TTL-Connections) with RX,TX and GND
I connected my Orange Pi R1 via TTL and 115200 Baud and could "work" at a (max.) Terminal-Size of 80x25
(80x25 is max. in the downloadable binary - if you do compile by yourself mor is possible.... 132x50 would be fine )
So if you have a misconfigured Network-Connection (missed the /24 in the IP of the server in nmtui) and you dont want to use a USB-serial-Dongle because every Dongle wats its own driver - here a second solution
