    installing armbian-config and the full desktop on top of the minimal image runs like a champ on this La Frite! Thanks so much guys for this awesome work (in progress :D)
     
    and temperatures around 15C (on idle, ~60C on LibreComputer current desktop images) less than with the desktop images direct from LibreComputer, WOW! Even overclocked to 1.5GHz! You guys rock for a nightly image!

    I will double check this, but my "Le Potato" board seems to have no trouble with 4K screens (I don't often test this feature, it's my main monitor, I don't have a second test monitor so the test is a little disruptive of my work flow)

    Panfrost instructions Armbian
     
    This tutorial explains how to build an Armbian image with panfrost. And what else you need to make it work.
    These are early drivers. Many things don't work yet. Only OpenGL 2.1 works now.
     
    You need to build an image with kernel 5.2 or later.
    For this you need an x86 pc with Ubuntu 18.04 or a virtual Ubuntu 18.04 x86 image.

    First install git, then clone the build folder from Armbian, and enter the build directory.
     
    apt-get -y -qq install git git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/armbian/build cd build Now run the script with EXPERT=yes so you can choose to build a dev image.
    sudo ./compile EXPERT=yes Choose "Full OS image for flashing" Then "Show a kernel configuration menu before compilation" Choose your board. If it's not in the regular list, look in "Show SCS/WIP/EOS/TVB". Choose Development version kernel configuration -> device drivers -> graphic drivers -> panfrost  
    Let it run until it's finished. The image will be in the /build/output/images
    Burn it to an SD-card/eMMC/...
     
    Now we need to install all the needed software
    sudo apt install flex bison python3-mako libwayland-egl-backend-dev libxcb-dri3-dev libxcb-dri2-0-dev libxcb-glx0-dev libx11-xcb-dev libxcb-present-dev libxcb-sync-dev libxxf86vm-dev libxshmfence-dev libxrandr-dev libwayland-dev libxdamage-dev libxext-dev libxfixes-dev x11proto-dri2-dev x11proto-dri3-dev x11proto-present-dev x11proto-gl-dev x11proto-xf86vidmode-dev libexpat1-dev libudev-dev gettext glmark2 glmark2-es2 mesa-utils xutils-dev libpthread-stubs0-dev ninja-build bc python-pip flex bison cmake git valgrind llvm llvm-8-dev python3-pip pkg-config zlib1g-dev wayland-protocols Download and install meson
    wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/m/meson/meson_0.51.1-1_all.deb sudo dpkg -i meson_0.51.1-1_all.deb Download and install mesa DRM
    git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/mesa/drm cd drm meson build --prefix=/usr ninja -C build sudo -E ninja -C build install cd .. Download and install mesa graphics
    git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa cd mesa meson -Ddri-drivers= -Dvulkan-drivers= -Dgallium-drivers=panfrost,kmsro -Dlibunwind=false -Dprefix=/usr build/ ninja -C build/ sudo ninja -C build/ install REBOOT
     
    Optionally, update sdl (recommended)
    git clone https://github.com/SDL-mirror/SDL.git cd SDL mkdir build cd build cmake ../ make -j6 sudo make install REBOOT
     
    Only thing that works ok with it is supertuxkart, to install it.
    sudo apt install supertuxkart
     
    Panfrost - Linux games working from repo
    SuperTuxKart - Works well
    ExtremeTuxRacer - lots of glitches
    AssaultCube - lots of glitches

    Hi!
     
    HW video decoding on mainline kernel is possible, but in most cases you have to do some kernel patching yourself and use special library which provides VAAPI or use modified ffmpeg libraries. MPEG2 decoding is possible with kernel 5.0 or 5.1 (not sure), basic H264 decoding will be possible with kernel 5.3 and HEVC decoding will probably come with kernel 5.5 (patches already exist). Note that H264 and HEVC codecs are feature incomplete currently. However, I did some improvements for LibreELEC and there most H264 and HEVC videos work. Patches are available on LibreELEC github but are incompatible with VAAPI library, so only option is to use modified ffmpeg.
     
    Regarding memory consumption, please note that with OrangePi Lite you have only 512 MiB of RAM which is a bit low. LibreELEC for that reason doesn't support devices with less than 1 GiB of RAM. Consider following calculations for memory requirements, no matter which kernel you use:
    1. Multiple variants of 4K and 1440p resolutions exist, so I'll assume that 4K means 4096x2160 (same as on my LG TV) and 1440p means 2560x1440
    2. kernel allocates one XRGB (4 bytes per pixel) buffer for user interface (no matter if you're using window manager or not), so for that you need 4096*2160*4 ~ 34 MiB of CMA memory
    3. video is decoded to NV12 or NV21 formats and both take 1.5 byte per pixel, that means 2560*1440*1.5 = 5.27 MiB of CMA memory per single frame
    4. worst case for H264 and HEVC is that you need 16 reference frames to properly decode current frame, which means additional 5.27 * 16 ~ 84 MiB of CMA memory
    5. VPU needs additional scratch buffers per frame. Size of those buffers depends on codec features used, but for H264 is typically about 1/4th of multiplied width and height, so in worst case (1 + 16)*2560*1440/4  ~ 15 MiB of CMA memory
    6. VPU needs some other scratch buffers, but they are small, about 1 MiB in total
    7. you also need additional CMA memory for providing encoded data to VPU, but memory consumption for that heavily depends on userspace library/player implementation. Hard to give any estimation, so let's use 20 MiB.
     
    Final estimation for worst case display + VPU CMA consumption for 4K display and 1440p video: 34 + 5.27 + 84 + 15 + 1 + 20 ~ 160 MiB. You also have to consider that other devices may use CMA memory at the same time. In LibreELEC, CMA memory size is set to 256 MiB because so much is needed for decoding 4K videos.
     
    Hopefully that gives you perspective how much memory is needed for H264/HEVC video decoding.
     
    I won't touch (use) 3.4 kernel anymore, but I can help you with patching mainline kernel for better H264 and/or HEVC support and bring up ffmpeg based solutions (that includes mpv), if you want.

    In the old days, I provided OpenELEC images with 3.4 kernel (https://github.com/jernejsk/OpenELEC-OPi2) and it worked with 4K videos on 1080p display. Sadly, images don't exist anymore and source doesn't build anymore. Be aware, I used CedarX library instead of libvdpau-sunxi.
     
    I don't think I ever make it work with 4K screens, mostly because I didn't have such screen at the time.

    manuti reacted to NicoD in Better video playback with Vivaldi Browser - for all arm sbc's   
    Hi all.
    I've discovered Vivaldi Browser for arm. A fork of Chromium.
    There is a armhf version and a arm64 version.
    Youtube playback with this is a lot better. I've tested it on the NanoPi M4.
    The same video in Chromium had 2/3 dropped frames. (10 frames/s) 1080p video
    With Vivaldi browser you get 1/3 dropped frames. (20 frames/s)
    A lot better experience.

    Here you can download it.
    https://vivaldi.com/nl/blog/snapshots/vivaldi-1-15-rc-2/
     
    Here the source where I found it. From Meveric @ Odroid. Also explanation of how to install. No wget, and change filename to the file you've downloaded for gdebi. Or use gdebi package installer.(not tested)
    https://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?t=29229

    I tried in armhf on the M4 in armhf Lubuntu, worked great. Also tried the arm64 in Armbian Stretch. Also great.
    I didn't find any posts about Vivaldi in the Armbian forum. I thought it could be helpful.

    About point #3, your Orange PI PC is not stuck at kernel 3.0.
    H3 chip is not the fastest nor the newest, but currently is one of the best supported in mainline kernel. There is an enduring work-in-progress for hardware decoding on mainline kernel which is progressing nicely.
    It looks like LibreElec will soon include some official H3 support. All the main peripherals are working well and 3D acceleration is available.
    As for desktop replacement, the problem with the H3 is the lacking of the thermal driver, so frequencies of the SoC are set in a conservative fashion in armbian. The experience may suffer from this.
    You may think to use a small heatsink and drive the SoC to its rated 1.4Ghz and see if it satisfactory for you. IMHO it is not powerful enough for a decent desktop replacement, but you may try and see if it suits your needs.

    OrangePi Zero: My very first SBC. I do not really remember why I bought it but it started with DietPi. It served Pihole for my network. Then Dietpi dropped their support for OrangePi boards and Pihole dropped their support for older Debian distributions. So a new OS was needed and that is the reason I landed her and I have to tell I learned a LOT about all the things thanks to Armbian OrangePi One Plus: Well the main reason were the quite interesting specifications and the low price. Even though this board (or Allwinner H6 at all) is poorly designed I am not that disappointed about it. It very rarly failed on me, worked most of the time really nice. It serves data sharing, another One Plus is for testing purpose of new images and features. OrangePi One: As a nice replacement for the OrangePi Zero. Better voltage regulator and no crappy wireless onboard for the same price.Two of those I prepared with Armbian and Pihole and gave them away to friends. In the meantime I have another pair of Ones to prepare and give them away somewhen in the future as well. Kind a to spread the word about SBCs, Pihole and last but not least Armbian. Well... that's it. Quite a short list but much text ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  A board I always wanted to have but did not have a chance yet is the OrangePi Zero Plus. GBe and Allwinner H5 SoC. Maybe sometime in the future...

    It all started with the Raspberry Pi2B(4 years ago now) ... and then ...
    Odroid C2                         (For 3 years my favorite. Clocked at 1.75Ghz, with 128Ghz eMMC and ram OC it's amazingly fast. Low power consumption, good video playback(low display resolution), great gaming on it. Still use it as my SBC laptop, but the VIM3'll replace it Raspberry Pi3B                 (Not better than the pervious model. Dissapointed by it) Raspberry Pi Zero (+ 2 x Zero W)  (was handy, had build a Pi0Camera with it and an audio recorder, got in dissuse) Orange Pi+2                     (hated it, I still believed the 1.6Ghz bs, afterwards started to love it for what it is) Tinker Board (x2)             (Worst buy ever, too expensive for what it's. First broke, I was so stupid to buy another one without using it much) Khadas VIM2 Max           (Too slow for what it is. Otherwise a good designed board when used for what it's good) Odroid XU4                     (Loved it. It was my 2nd desktop with a HDMI-hub so I could switch to it when my PC was bussy. Amazing performance and great games. But a lot of issue's too) Rock64                            (a lot of issue's, nice on paper but doesn't deliver it's promises) Banana Pi M2 Zero          (nice little board, runs too hot to be useful, but had a lot of fun with it) NanoPC T3+                    (Love it a lot. Amazing for Blender renders, at a low power consumption. But single core performance is too low, should be default overclocked to 1.6Ghz in my opinion. It can handle it and cooling solution is sufficient) Raspberry Pi 3B+            (What a garbage board. DDR2 with a ok SoC is a bad combination. Bad power delivery, not very useable) NanoPi M4                      (My favorite until the VIM3 came, all-round a great board. Too bad there's a lack of Linux drivers for great gaming on it) Rock Pi 4B                       (First impression was great. But that went away after a while. Many software issues. I hate that I can't reach my eMMC with the big heatsink on) NanoPi DUO2                 (Still need to review it, but my first impression wasn't too good. Bad thermals, no hardware video encoding for the camera. This should be fixed by now, maybe a next video someday...) Orange Pi 3                    (Ok SoC, badly designed board) Pine H64 model b          (Ok SoC better designed board, it's their second try tho) Odroid N2                      (Great board, amazing performance and no fan needed. But runs at 12V so I can't run it on my power banks. I use it headless with VNC to do render jobs together with the NanoPC T3+) Nitrogen8M Mini           (I don't know yet, no HDMI and all proprietary connectors for everything. It is an industrial board for KIOSK's, but I'd like to see HDMI to set it up easily. It does have great audio assets, amplifier, audio in-out)
    Khadas VIM3                 (My newest favorite. What a performance for such low consumption at 5V. I've got the Basic, so much want the Pro... It's perfect to take with me to do heavy video render tasks. I love it...) Raspberry Pi4B             (My biggest surprise ever. Not thinking too much of it. But it's a lot more than I thought. Performs amazing.  But still has its faults. I think that's it. In chronological order I bought them.
    The first 2 were great boards that I still use a lot. But then I bought a lot of them that never delivered what they promissed. Only the XU4 and NanoPC T3+ were great.
    I started to get them for free to review starting with the NanoPi M4, and those were again very good.  Only bought the Odroid N2 after that.
    Good I review SBC's, I'm saving myself a lot of money now I've spend enough in the past on them.

    Total Linux noob by the way but I like to tinker. README.php has no indication of this gl4es entry, although it is included in the image.

    As in so many other cases, the board I'd recommend for this task is Odroid XU4, specially since it is selling for $50 right now. You already have fully working GPU drivers for a recent 4.14 kernel, and even a distro focused on gaming (see this video from @NicoD)

    manuti reacted to JMCC in [Development] RK3399 media script   
    So finally we have the first version of:
    The UN-official, UN-supported, etc...
    RK3399 MEDIA TESTING SCRIPT
     
    This is the first release of the RK3399 media testing script. The script provides a functionality similar to its RK3288 equivalent:
    Installing all the libraries and system configurations necessary for GPU accelerated X desktop, Chromium WebGL, full VPU video play acceleration up to 4k@60 10-bit HEVC (the maximum supported by the SoC), and GLES 3.2 / 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. 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 features, that have no big interest from the Armbian development prospective, but I find them interesting to play with:  Chromium browser with support for Flash and DRM-protected commercial web video streaming (tested with Amazon Prime, should also work with Netflix, Hulu, etc.), and a simple Pulseaudio GTK equalizer using LADSPA.  
    Here is a more thorough documentation:
     
    >>> DOWNLOAD LINK <<<
     
    Prerequisites:
    You need a fresh Armbian Bionic desktop image with default kernel installed. IMPORTANT NOTE: For Kodi to work, you need to use a nightly kernel for most RK3399 boards. Otherwise, it will crash the system. I'm not sure about RockPro64, it will probably work with the stable image. Please test and let me know, I don't have the board.  
    Instructions:
    Download the file above Untar it: tar xvf media-rk3399_*.txz cd media-script ./media-rk3399.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!
