  1. Retropie is an option. It should run fine. You can use armbian-gaming to install it and also some other emulators. https://github.com/NicoD-SBC/armbian-gaming This SoC should run ps1, some N64, snes, nes, gb, gba, ... I don't think ppsspp would work on it. I'm not aware of the GPU drivers for this SoC. So not sure about things that need gpu. Most retropie emulators don't use gpu. For doom on dosbox you don't need gpu drivers either.
  2. If it runs armbian for sure it's possible. Just install dosbox. Mount the folder to c mount c /folder/path/to/doom play the game. You can run it native too, there are tons of possibilities. I think freedoom is one. https://freedoom.github.io/ Chocolatedoom has deb packages for arm64 https://debian.pkgs.org/11/debian-main-arm64/chocolate-doom_3.0.1-1_arm64.deb.html GZdoom https://zdoom.org/downloads And tons more. Only question is, does it run Armbian?
  3. Hi all. I made a video about KDE Neon on the Raspberry Pi 5. I love it, I'll be switching from ubuntu-desktop to this. Greetings, NicoD
  4. Bionic, Focal, jammy Noble are all Ubuntu. Buster, Bullseye, bookworm, sid are all Debian versions. You use what you prefer or what fits your tasks best. I use Armbian Jammy on my Rock5B since I use it as main desktop and that's the image that works best for that. On my travel NanoPi R6S I use Armbian Noble because it has a better KDEnlive version to edit and render video's on my cycling trips. On my NAS ZimaBoard I use Noble because it fixes an issue with mounted drives, but could just as well use a debian version. For your tasks I would probably use Armbian Bookworm and install the apps. You probably could use CasaOS on Jammy for these tasks. It is a webinterface that allows you to install and setup docker apps. To install casaOS on Jammy : wget -qO- https://get.casaos.io | sudo bash So both downloadable images are community releases and not official armbian supported images. There is bookworm Debian 12 minimal which has only the essential things to boot a system and set it up. The other is Jammy Ubuntu 22.04 with the Gnome desktop. I would advice to build your own images with the distro version you want.
  5. For others. You need GPU drivers for many recent emulators. So either wait for mainline support with panthor or use Armbian Jammy with AmazingFate his GPU and multimedia ppa's for RK3588. You can install tons of emulators with armbian-gaming. PPSSPP, Retropie, aethersx2, android emulation, box86/64 with wine for windows games... https://github.com/NicoD-SBC/armbian-gaming It is written for Jammy and should also work on Debian Sid. But with other distro versions not everything might work and I can't give support for it. Now waiting on Ubuntu 24.04 to see if the GPU problems will be fixed with official releas. Else I'll focus on Debian releases instead.
  6. I've not tried on those but I'm sure Armbian runs on it. I run Armbian on lower spec Intel SoC's and it runs well. Armbian is perfect for headless work. Everything is configured for it. For me the advantage is to have the same OS on all my devices. If anyone wants 32-bit OS then go for Debian. They still support 32-bit.
  7. That is a mainline (edge) image. Support for that isn't there yet. Use Vendor kernel if you want support. Mainline is a work in progress.
  8. The speed of an sd-card is very dependent on the device used to read it. Most cheap tv-boxes have 20MB/s max. Some can do 70MB/s. I've not seen any go higher than that. Highest I've seen on an SBC is 90MB/s. But the cards are theoretically able to do more. I just don't have a reader supporting it. An eMMC is normally about 150MB/s to 350MB/s. Even the small 16GB eMMC will be faster than the best 256GB sd card. Just do read write benchmarks on both and make up your own conclusions.
  9. Hi all. Here my review of the Orange Pi 5 Plus with Armbian Jammy. I show tips for better desktop experience, show how to build your own images, how to run games, and tons of info about the board. Here's the video : For those who rather read, here's my gathered data : https://docs.lane-fu.com/s/5IxGlf4gn Greetings, NicoD
  10. To my knowledge Armbian has no support for the NPU side of things. Only (some) vendor Khadas images have this with example code. It all doesn't work as I'd like to see it, no compatibility with known standards. In my opinion the NPU is kind of useless. And Khadas isn't a big help here. Maybe LibreComputers has better implementation for it...
  11. I know this is the same on other Rockchip devices. Not sure what the cause is. Might be interference. I use usb audio adapter or hdmi-audio on all my boards. Never the on-board audio jack because it was a problem long ago with other boards. Even RPi used to have terrible sound on audio jack if I remember well.
  12. It doesn't have pd, only 5V. I hope your powered hub didn't send anything higher. Try a 5V PSU instead.
  13. Seems it is. I created a bug report for this. Thank you all the valuable info.
  14. He needed to use Jammy and not bookworm. The desktop choice has nothing to do with it. The AmazingFate repo only works on Jammy. That is what JashuaRiek is using too.
  15. What display are you using? And bit weird that it would work from sd and not from eMMC. I tested on sd-card only. Can you try Jammy to see if it also has this behaviour?
