  1. For the RockPi4C you just need the default armbian buster legacy. https://redirect.armbian.com/region/EU/rockpi-4b/Buster_legacy_xfce from https://www.armbian.com/rock-pi-4/ To install kodi with addones : sudo apt install media-buster-legacy-rk3399 --install-recommends https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16516-rk3399-legacy-multimedia-framework/
  2. Works with vanilla armbian legacy for rk3399. It even can clock to 2.2Ghz. I've got my M4 overclocked with buster legacy. But I'm not sure if it works with balbes150's images.
  3. @balbes150How can I overclock your images? I added this to armbianEnv.txt but it didn't seem to work. overlay_prefix=rockchip overlays=rk3399-oc-20 I'm using buster legacy.
  4. Hi, nice read. I could set my touchpad settings as I like it with Armbian Focal xfce4. In settings, mouse, then select touchpad. I set the acceleration to 80%, and most important for me is the touch click. With some other desktops I wasn't able to do that. I hope your PBP wil last you for a long time.
  5. On cinamon it seems to set font color to white, even LibreWrite has it to white. Also strange mouse cursor. With xfce4 it was also not super stable. With xpresent it was better. xfwm4 --vblank=xpresent --replace xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/vblank_xpresent -t string -s "MODE" --create I'm happy to see it working. Also that you can select resolution in OS is awesome. For gaming that's a must. It will be great when panfrost will be more mature.
  6. Hi all. The Panfrost GPU driver is finally starting to mature for Mali G52 on the Odroid N2/N2+ and Khadas VIM3. It doesn't perform great yet. But this will improve with time. In this video I show how to activate the panfrost driver on Armbian mainline. To activate panfrost : sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade sudo reboot Khadas VIM3 support is in the making. This also works on any other mainline image. Greetings.
  7. Hi al. I've finished my review of the PineBook Pro. I just love this thing. Runs great with Armbian. Here my video. Here all my gathered information:
  8. I've got no idea what's wrong. But it would help if you'd give a bit more information. On what are you trying to build? x86? Virtual Box? arm64? Docker? ... Did you try with a fresh build?
  9. That looks a lot better. Could you try a default armbian image and see how temperatures are with it? https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-4/ I do not own the OPi4. I'm not aware of the state of it. But those temperatures I've seen even badly cooled seemed very weird. I'd like to know if it is running high with a default image.
  10. That is very heavy throttling.

So something is seriously wrong with your System B. Even in single core 7-zip it is throttling at 85C. That is not normal. System A throttles at a lower temperature. But it doesn't seem it is running that much hotter than expected with a small heatsink. But compared to that, B throttles lower while being at a lot higher temperature. What images are you using, what did you change? Another tip would be to check your voltages at the source, and at the USB ports with a USB voltage meter. And again, the output of armbianmonitor. Not enough information is given to know what is happening. But it seems to me that system B should not be used. Something is seriously wrong with it. PS. This is how it should look from a healty RK3399 with ok cooling. http://ix.io/3qt9
  11. Feel free to try to add it to armbian-config. https://github.com/armbian/config The script is indeed dated. And no devs have time to work on it. I've always manually set it up in /etc/rc.local.
  12. @p0rc0_r0ss0You didn't share much information. As Werner mentioned. The output of armbianmonitor would tell a lot. You didn't mention if or what cooling you use. I'm a bit puzzled by the information you did share. At kernel 5.x you show a CPU frequency of 1800/1416MHz. That's the stock clockspeeds for RK3399. At kernel 4.x it's 1200/1200MHz and 1008/1200MHz. That looks like it's is throttling heavily. No temperatures are shown with it. Do you have any heatsink on it? The RK3399 does get very hot when not cooled well. That gives me the hint that your power supply might not be sufficient. An RK3399 maxed + peripherals can consume +3A. I would suggest you look for a big heatsink, a better power supply. And then use sbc-bench to see how the system behaves. If you don't need the maximum horsepower you can underclock the system. It will consume a lot less, and run a lot cooler. You can find sbc-bench and set cpu frequency with armbian-config.
