    The best SoC/devboard/TV-box for HW accelerated desktop

    Do not use a desktop that requires hw acceleration in any computer, because you want all the hw power for the applications. Xfce is light, fast, stable and freely configurable. With the Sunvell T95z Plus Amlogic S912 tv box the Xfce desktop and youtube videos works fine with help of 8 cpu cores. I have made the Debian testing Xfce distribution for my device. You can download it from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsNzZn-luc0

    Armbian for Amlogic S802/S812

    You create your own image. Take look of the armbian documentation and sources: https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/

    Debian testing Xfce is better than ubuntu, Xfce is lighter and Debian testing is a rolling release os. Sunvel T95Z Plus is cheaper and when you use class 10 microsd card, you have dual booting system and original android is safe.Take a look of my video descriptions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsNzZn-luc0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujnYBvMQfjM

    You are using really old kernel. Try with the mainline kernel, see: http://linux-meson.com/doku.php

    I2S is connected to the HDMI audio in the S9xx SOC. Other S9xx devices do have the hdmi audio support working but not meson-GXM devices officially: https://github.com/superna9999/linux/tree/linux-4.13-le-amlogic-gx/arch/arm64/boot/dts/amlogic

    I tested yours Debian Xfce image, aplay -l list only spdif device and pulseaudio control shows only analog output. Install wicd and xfce4-terminal instead networkmanager and xterminal. Use the xfce whisker menu. Your distro image is about 1.5 GB bigger than mine, so strip some packages. Your 86 patches are confusing, it is easier to copy whole source files from authors. Using 200q dtb.

    I added patches to 4.13-rc1 kernel where was usb and spdif patches already. Added missing clocks and hdmi audio patches. Copied new a dtb.img file of course. 0005-clk-meson-gxbb-aoclk-Add-CEC-32k-clock.patch was missing, implementing now...

    I added patches from here https://github.com/150balbes/meta-meson/tree/master/recipes-kernel/linux/linux-yocto-meson64-4.13. The command aplay -l lists only spdif device, no hdmi audio. What is required to enable hdmi audio for a s912 device?

    You mean kernel 4.13...There is no 3.14 kernel for today in your yandex folder. Jerome brunet audio patches for S912 does have only spdif support. Have someone tested spdif audio patches?

    Image customization

    Armbian uses old kernels. The build process starts with the ../compile.sh file. Packages to install is defined in the configuration.sh file. Additional files are written in the distributions.sh file.

    I can acces this: https://yadi.sk/d/kZHc0uQE34z5jR Reboot your modem/router. I hope you have a reliable internet connection too, you can test with Linux distributions that offer checksum files.

    Image customization

    Do not use external hooks, only gods know how well they work If you plan to maintain your on distro for a specific device, just remove whatever unneeded code from .sh files to make them simpler and more readable.

    Image customization

    Just inspect and edit lib/*.sh files. https://github.com/armbian/build/tree/master/lib

    What space, cp is simpler command than dd. This is more more efficient than yours: xzcat Debian_testing_4.13.0_xfce.img.xz > /dev/sdX

    I mean what I wrote, use: sudo cp Debian_testing_4.13.0_xfce.img /dev/sdX. Reference: https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch04s03.html.en # cp debian.iso /dev/sdX # sync If you still have problems, test if you can login via ssh and ethernet LAN. Maybe your hardware differs too much from gxm-q200. You did wrote that you bought a cheap sdcard, I hope it is class 10. A slow sdcard can time out things.
