  1. This might just be the best opener I've ever seen! Made me smile, thanks
  2. I don't think I can help diagnose the problem. After I changed the TV mode, the picture was there, and the display options recognised the TV model and provided the option for 3840x2160. I selected that and the resolution worked fine. I've now added that to the xorg conf and rebooted. The desktop appeared in the new resolution, but I'm not sure which thing I did that fixed it. Sorry, this was pretty useless for debugging the problem. I've noticed that in this this resolution, when I drag windows around they leave trails and lag behind the mouse. Is this normal due to the limited ability of the chip?
  3. I bought myself a wired USB keyboard so I could try this tutorial. I've got the new March 4.4 kernel xenial desktop image, and I followed the instructions. I got to the point where you restart x, so I issued sudo systemctl restart nodm.service and got booted back to the full-screen root terminal. Is this the wrong command? I issued 'reboot' and got a black screen, then a full power cycle, and got a black screen. Any ideas? Ninja edit: I just cycled my TV through it's HDMI modes, and the picture is back. Not sure what the difference between mode 1 and mode 2 on the TV is, but I now have a signal. Is there supposed to be a 4k setting in the xorg conf file, e.g 3840 x 2160 or 4096 x 2160?

    RK3328 Kernel

    Good memory, yes I tried to diff the config on the page 14, but page 15: ...is where I detailed most of my findings. Looks like the dongle started working between 4.11 and 4.12

    RK3328 Kernel

    Does this improve the chances of my wireless keyboard working? It's not bluetooth exactly, it's got it's own proprietary dongle. It works on the mainline kernel, but not 4.4, even though the keyboard is ancient. I wonder if there are some kernel config options that are needed to support USB interfaces that are enabled in the mainline, but not in 4.4? I'm really looking forward to the new image, even if I have to bring my keyboard home from work to test!
  6. Ah... I wonder if this is what happened to me. Maybe if I'd left it long enough the CLI would have appeared. I'll give it another go. If I get a CLI I'll run armbianmonitor -u UPDATE: I left it on for several hours and checked it again, but no output on HDMI. I disconnected the power, then reconnected, and thought I had a black screen, when in fact I had output. On the quad HD screen, the login console is tiny at the top left! I barely noticed it. Unfortunately I can't run armbianmonitor -u since my keyboard won't connect on this version of the kernel. It works on the mainline version though.
  7. I couldn't install the debs since there was no video. When the new images are released I'll have another try and get back to you
  8. I've hit a snag. With the default download (Armbian_5.38_Tinkerboard_Ubuntu_xenial_default_4.4.112_desktop) I get nothing on the screen. I also tried a different image for good measure (Armbian_5.37_Tinkerboard_Debian_jessie_default_4.4.104). I think maybe the issue is that it's a 4K TV. I didn't have any issues with my old HD TV, but we got rid of it! Any config changes I can apply after flashing the image so I get an output?
  9. I'm happy to do some testing. What's the ideal set-up? Download the legacy version and then dpkg the debs? After that, what are we testing for, working features and uptime without random reboots?

    RK3328 Kernel

    I've been waiting for my Sentio Superbook to turn up (I think it will arrive in a month or two) so I haven't had much use for my tiny portable desktop, which has gathered some dust over the last few weeks. I've sneezed it off, and flashed the lastest nightly Armbian_5.32.170916_Tinkerboard_Ubuntu_xenial_dev_4.13.0_desktop.7z (2017-09-15 08:10 589.2 MB) I'm happy to report that my bluetooth keyboard continues to work with the nightlies, and since the last version I tested, I'm extremely pleased to now find that there is a login screen. Also, Chromium now works again. Another thing that had bugged me, being prompted for admin password for wifi reconnect, has now been fixed. I'm well chuffed.

    The VPU driver

    Wow, this is such a great contribution for RK3288. It must be immensely satisfying to remake this driver and see it working!
  13. No, I mean the stock Armbian OS of course! Armbian for the win!
  14. Is it possible to get the stock OS with the new kernel? Is this something I should be having a go at building myself? At the moment I can only use the last nightly because of my bluetooth keyboard limitation.
