    NanoPI M4

    Sound seems to be a Problem on RK3399 Chips at the Moment. I got the Rockpro and the M4 , HDMI Sound is only working on 2 Channels, SPDIF is not working at all (did work on an early Kernel from ayufan for Rockpro) Sound on GPIO I2S is not working.. I think there are Driver Problems that are only solved when Rockchip is working on them.
  2. I am trying to build an Image for the Rockpro but i am allways getting an Error when it comes to compile U-boot (did not make any Changes so far): Displaying message: Preparing host info Displaying message: Build host OS release bionic info Displaying message: Syncing clock host info ## BUILD SCRIPT ENVIRONMENT Repository: https://github.com/armbian/build Version: 46340a24 Host OS: bionic Host arch: amd64 Host system: Linux ek-desktop 4.15.0-33-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Wed Aug 15 16:00:05 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Virtualization type: none ## Build script directories Build directory is located on: TARGET SOURCE FSTYPE AVAIL /home /dev/sda1 ext4 319,9G Build directory permissions: # file: /home/ek/build # owner: ek # group: ek user::rwx group::rwx other::r-x Temp directory permissions: # file: /home/ek/build/.tmp # owner: root # group: root user::rwx group::rwx other::r-x ## BUILD CONFIGURATION Build target: Board: rockpro64 Branch: default Desktop: yes Kernel configuration: Repository: https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/linux-kernel Branch: tag:4.4.138-1094-rockchip-ayufan Config file: linux-rockchip64-default U-boot configuration: Repository: https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/linux-u-boot Branch: branch:rockchip-master Config file: rockpro64-rk3399_defconfig Partitioning configuration: Root partition type: ext4 Boot partition type: (none) User provided boot partition size: 0 Offset: 16 CPU configuration: 600000 - 1900000 with ondemand Displaying message: Downloading sources info Displaying message: Checking git sources u-boot-rockchip64 rockchip-master info Displaying message: Checking out Displaying message: Checking git sources linux-rockchip64 4.4.138-1094-rockchip-ayufan info Displaying message: Up to date Displaying message: Checking git sources arm-trusted-firmware-rockchip64 rockchip info Displaying message: Up to date Displaying message: Checking git sources sunxi-tools master info Displaying message: Up to date Displaying message: Checking git sources rkbin-tools master info Displaying message: Up to date Displaying message: Checking git sources marvell-tools A3700_utils-armada-17.10 info Displaying message: Up to date Displaying message: Checking git sources odroidc2-blobs master info Displaying message: Up to date Displaying message: Checking git sources testing-reports master info Displaying message: Up to date Displaying message: Cleaning output/debs for rockpro64 default info Displaying message: Cleaning arm-trusted-firmware-rockchip64/rockchip info Displaying message: Compiling ATF info Displaying message: Compiler version aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc 6.4.1 info Displaying message: Started patching process for atf rockchip64-rockpro64-default info Displaying message: Looking for user patches in userpatches/atf/atf-rockchip64 info Displaying message: * [\e[32ml\e[0m][\e[35mb\e[0m] add-trust-ini.patch info Displaying message: Cleaning u-boot-rockchip64/rockchip-master info Displaying message: Compiling u-boot 2017.09 info Displaying message: Compiler version aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc 7.2.1 info Displaying message: Checking out sources Displaying message: Cleaning u-boot-rockchip64/rockchip-master info Displaying message: Started patching process for u-boot rockchip64-rockpro64-default info Displaying message: Looking for user patches in userpatches/u-boot/u-boot-rockchip64-default info Displaying message: * [\e[32ml\e[0m][\e[32mc\e[0m] add_fdtfile_dt_overlays.patch info Displaying message: ERROR in function compile_uboot compilation.sh:185 err Displaying message: U-boot file not found idbloader.bin err Displaying message: Process terminated info Trying to build an Image for the PineH64 does not work either: Displaying message: Preparing host info Displaying message: Build host OS release bionic info Displaying message: Syncing clock host info Displaying message: ERROR in function source main.sh:188 err Displaying message: No kernel branch selected err Displaying message: Process terminated info

    RockPro64

    From my point of view, the RockPro is a poor performer at the Moment. The Rk3399 is not new, it is available for over two years now. There are TVBoxes and Chromebooks working with it, but on Rockpro it is not possible to run a minimal Server with BSP Kernel idle without crashing. Even Overvoltage does not bring more stability. Regarding the resistor, that has to be removed to get PCIe partially running, I doubt that there are only Software Issues have to be resolved to get this Board running. Perhaps there is a reason why competitors boards are more expensive. I did not expect to see this board running fully supported after a few weeks, but i did not expect such instability, even not in the beginning. Keeping in mind ayufans comments, that some things are working on prerelease boards, i wonder why the guys at Pine64 changed so many hardwaredetails for the boards that were going on sale. For now i would not recommend to buy this board, the board is on early stage of development, not only the software.

    RockPro64

    I really wonder why this board is sold without Heatsink. Is the Design of this Heatsink unique or is it possible to use some Northbridge Heatsink or something similar?

    Android on H6 Boards

    I would not recommend to take Xulongs Serverimage as a start. Sources are mixed up from Debian and Ubuntu, if you try to install something , you Break something else on the other side.

    Meltdown and Spectre

    A little bit Off Topic. I just found out, that the big German "ehealth-Program" is based on i.MX6 SOCs running a Debian Wheezy on it. The certified Box (there is only one at the Moment) is acting as VPN Gateway and is absolutely secure as stated here. These Boxes have to be installed in every German doctor's surgery, and hospital up till the end of 2018....
  7. The Android Image for Pine H64 is released now, BSP is 3.10.65 Security Patch level is 5.11.2016...I do not know if it is worth to take a deeper look in.

    Best board for an mpd server?

    The OrangePI Pc 15$ + a cheap I2s Dac, or the Orange Pi PC Plus ,22$,with 8 Gb EMMC an WIFI would be my favourites. Regards
  9. Regarding this Post https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=5722&pid=35576#pid35576 I think the H64 is supposed to be dead before it is really going. I do not expect Android and Linux builds in the near future. The H6 has Potential, but Allwinner messed it up with the "dirty" BSP 4.9 Kernel.
  10. I have got my H64 this week and because there is no software from pine at the moment, i tried the Ubuntu Server image for Opi ONE Plus. It is booting and after installing xvfb and xserver stuff, i was able to use a basic Desktop system. I would not recommend this System, it was just to see if the Hardware is working. Xulongs image is a Mix of Ubuntu and Debain Sources, Kernel is the old BSP 3.10.65. Even there is no Graphic Acceleration at all, the System is running quite smooth. Regards

    H3/H5/A64 DRM display driver

    Still no change here: AVR shows Multichannel PCM with right Number of Channels , pink noise from speaker-test only on the fronts.

    I am back home in the evening, of course I will test it

    Armbian for tv box Z28

    Did an another test this morning with xenial-minimal-rock64-0.5.10-118-arm64.img.xz from ayufans github. It is not working on my z28 (XJH-ZY168-V00) , burned with etcher. To test the SD card i took Kwiboos Openelec Image LibreELEC-ROCK64.aarch64-8.2-devel-20170818172941-r26033-ge19c7b5.img and burned it to the same card. Apart from no network and the annoying Heartbeat Led, this image is working.

    Armbian for tv box Z28

    Just as information, the latest ayufan images are not running on z28 and because rock64 armbian is based on ayufans work it will also not boot. So I would not recommend to buy such box at all, it is just another cheap chinese TV Box.

    No change so far, still only noise on two channels, AVR shows Multichannel PCM and the right number of channels. dmesg: http://sprunge.us/ieMH
