    NicoD reacted to balbes150 in Installing on vim 3, is it possible? Are there working instructions somewhere?   
    Tnx. I saw the reason what is missing to run Armbian if the default Android firmware is used. ^)

    NicoD got a reaction from Simo in Boot Orange Pi 5 from HDD connected through Sata-USB adaptor   
    You do have a way to power your HDD do you? Or is it an SSD?
    A sata adapter only powers 2.5" devices. If it's 3.5" HDD then you need 12V. 
    I would advice not to boot from HDD. If something goes wrong with the image on an sd-card then you just replace the sd-card without loosing anything from the HDD. 
    Do use a good sd-card. Hard drives also aren't super fast, so no real speed benifit in using that.

    NicoD got a reaction from Minh in How I can use hardware-acceleration to encode/transcode video on Orange Pi 5 using FFmpeg? (or I need to use gstreamer?)   
    @MinhIt is not GPU hw acc but VPU you need.
    Are you using the @amazingfate multimedia ppa?
     
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:liujianfeng1994/panfork-mesa #Panfork GPU ppa sudo add-apt-repository ppa:liujianfeng1994/rockchip-multimedia #Multimedia ppa for VPU acceleration sudo apt update sudo apt dist-upgrade sudo apt install mali-g610-firmware rockchip-multimedia-config I suspect you might need gstreamer. That's included. My knowledge ain't great in these things, so maybe amazingfate or someone else can add to it.

    NicoD got a reaction from 0jay in armbian gpu performance   
    GPU drivers have nothing to do with Armbian. Armbian can only show how to use them. We are not driver developers.
    It is expected that the blob Rockchip driver runs way better than the open-source panfrost/panfork drivers. Panfrost might improve in time. N2/N2+/VIM3 at first also performed worse than RK3399 but after time it now outperforms RK3399 by a lot.
    Both drivers are very useful to me.
    You can use the blob by running in x11 and run your program with "malirun programname"
    Not everything will work, but for example PS2 emulation works perfect like that.

    Video playback has nothing to do with GPU drivers but VPU drivers. For that there is the multimedia ppa from AmazingFate.

    NicoD got a reaction from Efe Çetin in Armbian images for R6S & R6C   
    Ok. I'll wait till things are fixed.
    I did just test install to NVMe and boot from sd and it indeed didn't work as it should. Couldn't boot into x anymore. Install to eMMC does work. 
    I'm already very happy to have this. I can have the same setup on my trip as I've got on my main desktop at home with the Mekotronics mini.
    With a 1TB NVMe for movies. That's great
    I was really let down by the FE images for it. Seems there's degression. The old R6S image was better than the new R6C Ubuntu. Big thank you!

    Lets keep it in WIP section for awhile until we don't do more testings. I found out armbian-install doesn't work well so this needs to be fixes, perhaps something else ...

    NicoD reacted to fredrum in A thread about Dolphin the emulator on Orange Pi 5. (Linux not Android)   
    Someone asked in a different thread how I got Dolphin to run so thought I'd start a thread so not to pollute the other one.
    Basically it wasn't that hard especially if youve done some git'hubbing before.
     
    I think I followed the 'Ubuntu' instructions here.
    Make sure you get the dependencies and do all the steps correctly.
    It should build without problems if you do.  (remember you have a lot of cores on Opi5 so can use 'make -j6' or even higher)
     
    https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/wiki/Building-for-Linux
     
     
    You then want to set a config flag to make Dolphin use GLES instead of big brother OpenGL.
    (you probably want to run it at least once to generate the config files)
     
    nano ~/.config/dolphin-emu/GFX.ini
    add a line:
    PreferGLES = True
     
    But when running one of the more common games I got a shader compilation error.
    I hacked around that and also reported it on the Dolpin bug report site and it should be fixed soon when the 'PR' gets accepted.
    In the meantime you can read here what to do,
     
    https://bugs.dolphin-emu.org/issues/13198#
     
     
    Note that in my youtube video I get a good fps but later on in the game when you get to the first village the transparencies in the central square bonfire completely kills fps.
    The same happens in Metroid Prime when you have the large bluish holo walls in view.
    Mario Kart runs pretty well most of the time. Mario Sunshine as well at least in the plaza area I have't tried further.
     
     
    Cheers and Good Luck!

    NicoD got a reaction from Avatar Ng in armbian-gaming beta   
    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.
     
    https://github.com/NicoD-SBC/armbian-gaming
     
    Download and unzip and run script : sudo /bin/bash ./armbian-gaming.sh 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.

    @NicoDVersion 20230219. No manual copying of dtb is needed anymore, all support is included in u-boot, i.e. after writing the image to USB\SD, you can use it immediately. The installation on eMMC has been checked.
     
    ps All the necessary changes will automatically get into the official relise version, you can build your own version of the images

    @NicoDVersion 20230211 Armbian for khadas edge2 - added support for HW 3D . The result of gnome3+wayland+arm-blob gave about 3800 parrots. For details on how to install HW and testing, see this topic.

    Alpha version of Armbian for Khades EDGE 2 (rk3588s).
    Launch. Download, unpack, burn to USB media (you can use an SD card if there is an additional module with a card reader for an SD card). Connect to any USB port on EDGE 2 and turn on the power. The system starts automatically. It would be interesting to run tests on this version. I pay attention - there is no 3D acceleration yet, general performance tests for the Armbian image are interesting. Wi-Fi is not working yet,  need to use USB-LAN, this will be fixed in future versions.

    You don't have to justify yourself @NicoD, it was just in case this was possible for you. 🤷‍♂️
    Maybe I'll bump into someone else involved in Armbian, you never know who one could meet when in FOSDEM. 😉

    I'd like to go but finances ain't there. Have to save for a cycling trip in a few months, and investing in computer gear for kids.
    Tho just going one afternoon is possible. But I've got to sit 2 hours on the train to get in Brussels, and then go from station to the expo, and 2 hours back. So would be a very boring day. And for just being there a few hours I don't feel it's worth it.
    If I would go I'd rather stay the night in Brussels on Saturday and leave Sunday evening. And have my recording gear with me to make video's. Next year I can plan it if others promise to go. Enjoy your time in Brussels. I hope the weather will be good.

    3. Questions around upcoming release
     
    Today is the code freeze. Actions:
     
    notify maintainers and prepare them to be ready on testings in two weeks from now notify developers: their code gets into release log only if exists in Jira. Minimum requirement is Jira issue or Jira story with Name, short description and field "Fix versions" set to 23.02 that code freeze is a milestone when we change our focus into code stabilisation and fixing bugs. It is not expected to drop existing work in progress at once but gradually close it. in the code freeze period, there is additional restriction on code merge: pull requests approval from 1 person to 2 persons
