  1. CuBox-i4Pro and X11 GPU support

    Hi @Astralix , in the meanwhile I was able to build the XF86 video driver for 2D and 3D acceleration follwing the instructions in this repo. It looks a bit strange, because the driver is developed in the unstable_devel branch and master hasn't been touched for a while plus it uses code from two other external repos. Nevertheless compilation worked out of the box (I followed the etnadrm path described at the bottom of the README file). To enable the XF86 driver you have to add the following to the XF86 config: Section "Device" Identifier "Driver0" Screen 0 Driver "armada" EndSection With this I was able to get glmark2 and glxgears to show up and apparently both are running with hardware acceleration. For glmark2 I had to set "MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=2.1", because the etnaviv mesa driver reported only 1.4 . Also chromium reports support for hardware acceleration now. Please note that the chromium ubuntu armhf build by default uses the setting "enable-low-end-device-mode" which shows webpages and especially pictures in a distored way. To use standard rendering you have to override the default chromium flags (set in /etc/chromium-browser/default): echo CHROMIUM_FLAGS=>~/.chromium-browser.init Regards Georg
  2. CuBox-i4Pro and X11 GPU support

    Well thanks to @Astralix at least I could start X now. :-) It was the X server setting for the fb device. With this setting X is starting up. But unfortunately X is not accelerated and performance is very poor. I think there is some X/GLX driver missing. I tried glmark2-drm on the console using the framebuffer directly it was smooth (gave me a score of 20). glmark2 under X gave me a score of 8, because it was using software rendering (Gallium llvm pipe). I will check more details next week. @Astralix Did you manage to get an accelerated X? Regards Georg

    OK, so I build Armbian 5.35 Xenial Next Desktop out of the git repo with 24fbb01. After I startup and configure the user X doesn't come up , see the attached Xorg.0.log : [ 68.024] (EE) modeset(0): Failed to initialize glamor at ScreenInit() time. [ 68.024] (EE) Fatal server error: [ 68.024] (EE) AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0 [ 68.025] (EE) [ 68.025] (EE) Regards Georg Xorg.0.log

    Hi there, is there a chance to have hardware acceleration for the armbian images for stretch? I build the debian stretch default desktop version, but there is no xserver-xorg-video-imx-viv and thus the desktop feels really laggy. Regards Georg
