    manuti reacted to Igor in Armbian v21.02   
    Release planning: January 2nd. Meeting location is IRC channel #armbian on freenode. Meeting starts at 2pm GMT.
    Open topics / development directions:

    - desktop branch merge into the master
    - enabling 3D support on desktop(s)
    - update u-boot (where possible) to 2020.10 and K5.10.y
    - ZSH setting to default or optimise 1st run choosing
    - moving blob section (except build packages) to newly created structure inside "desktop" branch (need to discuss best way / adjust framework if needed and set rules!)
    - and Jira bugs / features we chose to deal with by then
    There are reports about some broken images on Rockchip legacy, K5.9.y is EOL so there is an option to squeeze another bugfix update with focus on u-boot / kernel update + image refreshing. Anything that is outside of my test rig - I have no idea about the statue - except well known NIC troubles with Orangepi 3.

    manuti reacted to Igor in Support of Raspberry Pi   
    Raspberry Pi OS started to secretly (!?) adding Microsoft proprietary package base, access to their servers, by default. 
    Security consequences? tl;dr; ... Microsoft gained root access to millions of Rpi users without their consent or awareness. From the outside. This is bad, but it is actually much worse since from the inside they already have full control of your Raspberry Pi regardless of operating system of your choice. Linux/BSD/* can't boot without proprietary Microsoft owned real time OS.
    Most of the RPi users probably just don't care, others are naively assuming they are running FOSS software. Well, a part of it is, a part not. Not as bad as Android, but still. You can peek into the code, but at the end, Google, or lets say corpo world, is/are fully in charge of our mobile devices. Mainly with services.
    After recent Chromium improvements, this is yet another loss for (Linux) community and FOSS in general.

    manuti reacted to Kalobok in Rock Pi S, RK3308 CPU, is it supported by anything?   
    Well, if it's possible, why not to include it? Especially that it's almost 30% increase in frequency. Since the board doesn't tend to overheat, there should be no thermal issues.
    Also (and it's quite subjective, I admit), I have an impression that the board is somewhat slow when it has to generate web content for rpimonitor.
    PS Tried usb with custom-built kernel - the same result (USB hubs are present but devices are not recognized).

    Just checked Armbian_21.02.0-trunk.4_Rockpi-s_buster_current_5.9.11_minimal image.
    Wifi works, USB doesn't (lsusb gives no output).
    Also, available frequencies are limited to 1008000, while with the legacy kernel  max freq is 1296000.

    thanks for the post nico! well, with rk3399 across team we will.make some severe changes on this armbian build. we will move to xfce abd rebrand the build as TwisterOS armbian. the idea would be to start with RK3399, then S922x, not only N2 bc they are competitors arising and also bc you know I don't like N2. cheers!

    manuti reacted to AnonymousPi in How to enable RDP (xrdp) with Armbian so you can login from a Windows PC   
    Update, for whatever reason this is broken in Armbian focal, and the issue appears to be due to an Armbian shell script that xrdp doesn't like, so after doing the install, you also need to then do:
    sudo mv /etc/profile.d/ /etc/profile.d/armbian-check-first-login.old And volia, you'll actually get a desktop when you RDP from windows.

    Maybe others are affected too, don't know about Ubuntu.

    manuti reacted to legogris in Focal vs Buster?   
    It's not a case of arm64 not being as well-supported. In general most modern software has way better support on arm64 than armf. If you're on a 64-bit processor, you can choose. HC2 will simply not do arm64 since it's a 32-bit processor.
    You can use either distro. I'd personally vouch for buster, or even bullseye. debian's testing is generally relatively stable in this phase of the lifecycle, and buster has old versions with known issues of some packages by now.

    For those boxes is really a jungle !!
    Those Chinese tend to grab the first avaible cheap chip and put inside so a big variety of possibilities.
    @Jock contacted me and maybe now is the moment to " put hands " in this sluttish driver.
    @Ztrawberry the driver for ssv6051 doesn't suit sv 6x5x this is the problem and that project for a universal image is a nice idea but me and jock and other clever programmers  ( the same man  that bring libreelec to life on those boards @knaerzche ) own so many different boards that  has been reached great maturity  on rk 322x . Mostly bugs are well known ( ssv6x5x among others) and still working on them
    Of course support , ideas and suggestions are highly appreciated

    manuti reacted to jernej in Hardware Graphic/Video Acceleration in H3 Mainline   
    Well, kernel modification is needed for better decoding (less glitches). Probably new *-ctrl.h files contain new fields (not 100% sure) which also need to be filled.
    There is no any post processing implemented here like scaling. It would be possible to do that via SoC specific peripherals but that wouldn't be universal and thus it's out of scope of this library.
    Anyway, I'm glad you succeeded.

    Connect to the TV box and turn on the power. The system will start automatically.
