  1. Hi all. I've created a tool to install Box86, Box64 and Wine onto Armbian Hirsute 5.13 I've tested it on RK3399. Should work on any device with panfrost drivers enabled. Please let me know on what it works, or if it doesn't. Here is the script. I also made a video where I show how to use it.
  2. In this video I show how to use armbian-gaming.
  3. Hi all. I've done a collaboration with @Igor, the creator of Armbian. He shows and talks about the hardware that is used to maintain the project. Servers, boards, other electronics, ... Enjoy! More videos to come.
  4. Hi all. I've just finished a new video about Armbian Hirsute XFCE4. I show what's new. Mostly the feel and look are a bit more modern. Here is my video. Some other notes I've got : Memory usage buster < focal < hirsute xfce4 < budgie < cinnamon CPU performance buster < hirsute < focal xfce4 < cinnamon < budgie So Buster xfce uses the least memory. And is also the slowest. Hirsute is quite a bit slower than Focal, and uses more memory. I do find the newer looks worth the price.

  5. I expect within a day and eternity or never. You could as well ask a clairvoyant. This is the only board using this SoC. So not that much development for it. Things are evolving. But no idea if it will ever be a good board for everyone. So only for the brave for now. I'm also waiting and watching for good news about it. Hardware wise it's an ok board. But not worth buying.
  6. I did have this on PBP with GParted. I had to open manually. Another thing I noticed was my storage device filling up and not making space after deleting files. 2nd time that happened. No idea why it does these things. My NanoPi M4 seems ok, but running Buster legacy on that. Mainline focal on PBP I think 5.11.
  7. Hi all. I'm working on a script that can install different Linux gaming tools like Box86, Box64, PPSSPP, ... For now it can only install box86 and box64. There is also an issue installing wine, so this doesn't work either. Download and unzip and run script : sudo /bin/bash ./ When ready I'll make a video about it and give more info. I've tested it on the PineBookPro with Hirsute. With the Odroid N2+ you need to activate panfrost, install dependecies for N2+, and then install box86. Tho it didn't work as it should. If "install box86" gives a build error, try the dependencies for N2+ and try "install box86" again. Please let me know your experiences on other systems.
  8. For the RockPi4C you just need the default armbian buster legacy. from To install kodi with addones : sudo apt install media-buster-legacy-rk3399 --install-recommends
  9. 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.
  10. @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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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:
  15. 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?
