    bedalus reacted to JMCC in RK3288 Media Script (TinkerBoard)   
    The UN-official, UN-supported, UN-necessary, UN-popular, UN-precedented...
    RK3288 MEDIA TESTING SCRIPT [2.0: Bionic update]
     
    So here is the final release of the RK3288 media testing script. Basically, the script provides the following functionality:
    Installing all the libraries and system configurations necessary for GPU accelerated X desktop, Chromium WebGL, full VPU video play acceleration up to 4k@30 HEVC (the maximum supported by the SoC), and GLES 3.1 / OpenCL 1.2 support. Three video players supporting full VPU acceleration (RKMPP) and KMS display (GBM or a X11 DRM "hack", as described by the authors), namely: MPV, Gstreamer and Kodi 18.0 alpha preview. Two example programs using the OpenCL functionality: Examples form the Arm Compute Library, and a GPU crypto miner (an old version, but small and simple). A library that will act as an OpenGL to OpenGL-ES wrapper, allowing you to run programs that use OpenGL 1.5-2.0. Two additional small packages, that have no big interest from the developer prospective, but I find them interesting to play with: Support libraries for commercial web video streaming (tested with Netflix), and a simple Pulseaudio GTK equalizer using LADSPA.  
    Here is a more thorough documentation:
     
    Version 2.0 (Bionic):
     
    Version 1.0 (Xenial):

    >>> DOWNLOAD LINK (2.0, FOR BIONIC DESKTOP) <<<
     
    > Older Download link (1.0, for Xenial) <
     
    Instructions:
    Download the file above Untar it: tar xvf media-rk3288_*.tar.xz cd media-script ./media-rk3288.sh  
    Notes:
    This script is not officially supported by the Armbian project. It is just a community effort to help the development of the main build, by experimenting with a possible implementation of the media capabilities of this particular SoC. Therefore, questions about the script should not be laid out as support requests, but as commentaries or community peer-to-peer assistance. That being said, all commentaries/suggestions/corrections are very welcome. In the same way, I will do my best to help solve any difficulty that may arise regarding the script.  
    Enjoy!

    I am all too familiar with this kind of magic.  ;-)  My 4k Samsung monitor defaulted immediately to 4k, the only issue I ever had was it crashing when trying to change modes.  Rockchip appears to have fixed that, as the issue is now gone.

    So, if anyone wishes to contribute to the official ASUS kernel, it will be much easier.

    Hello Bluetooth.  Thanks @Igor for the services help, loading on boot no problem.  Played some music through the board from my phone over Bluetooth, nice and smooth.

    No, I mean the stock Armbian OS of course! Armbian for the win!

    Stock OS ? You mean ASUS Debian image ? Yeah, I guess you can give it a try.
     
    I got ready-to-use kernel files here :
    https://github.com/Miouyouyou/RockMyy-Build
     
    That said, my configuration and ARMbian kernel configuration might differ in some places.
    Also, I'm only testing my kernels on MiQi devices so I can't guarantee that everything will work on Tinkerboard systems.

    I think this may have gone up recently: http://opensource.rock-chips.com/wiki_Mpp
     
    It doesn't mean anything to me, but the vpu is mentioned so maybe it's useful, or if not, maybe will become useful if they add further documentation.

    Hmm, given that the BTC Keyboard ID have been added 7 years ago, I guess it's more related to Bluetooth dongles getting detected correctly, indeed.

    EDIT: I deleted a lot of the results I just posted after re-reading the thread... It's all been done before! I got similar resuls as others who've done the test, around 6.6khash/s followed five minutes later by a decline to around 6.1, caused by thermal throttling to ~1.7GHz.
     
    At least I seem to have a stable setup. Any other tests I can run on armbian's behalf? Anything I can do to help, I'm happy to give it a go.

    I would if I could, but I've no way to log into the device on the standard images as this is my only keyboard! Maybe they'd let me borrow one from work.
     
    I have to say thanks thanks for all your work and input in this thread. When I got this device I was unaware of armbian, and happened to discover it because you posted a link in the asus forum: https://tinkerboarding.co.uk/forum/thread-330.html
     
    I found armbian and its users so interesting I must have read this entire thread two or three times! If you follow the link above you can see how I followed your example with GPIO power and an uprated heatsink and was able to hacksaw a hole into my case and attach a little fan! You can even see my dongle

    Try to execute lsmod on the working kernel. Since most drivers are compiled modules, that should tell you what is the driver, I think. Then, from the module name, you can retrace the config option required and its dependencies.
     
    It might also be possible to determine the driver used using /sys nodes. But I don't know how exactly. udevadm can also help you.
     
    But yeah, try lsmod first.

    After entering root/1234/etc and getting to the desktop, the first thing I tried was a reboot, and it successfully rebooted back to the desktop. I tried again from the newly rebooted desktop, and success again.
