  1. It's working really well on my Intel boxes. Would anyone be interested on a bounty to package the binary so that we can install it on our wonderful Armbian TV boxes ?
  2. I have a Magicsee N6 Max on order. Looking forward to try out your work @balbes150

Must be fake reporting then

  5. What do you guys think of this? This and your tv box or smartphone, you're good to go

I have one still up after 7 days despite temps hitting 100 C at times and @balbes150 work is phenomenal. Genius
  7. Wow, awesome. Better than the s912? If it is, I shall be on the lookout for a cheap price on sale to try it out. Cheapest I find is ~USD88, I'm in at under USD45
  8. Is it smoother on the desktop than the rk3328, seeing that it has 2 extra cores?
  9. This might be useful to someone... (probably me so that I dont forget) How to get a x2go client running on a cheap TV Box (running on Caidao T1, S11, BM8 Pro, A5X Max, T95Z Plus, TX9 Pro, MX10) 1. Get Armbian installed and running Choose the non-desktop version of the ubuntu image, burn sdcard, boot and go thru 1st time setup. Instructions from: or 2. Install the bits to get x2go running sudo apt update sudo apt install xserver-xorg xinit pulseaudio x2goclient edit .xinitrc, add "x2goclient -geometry 1920x1080 --thinclient" Launch startx and you should be able to set-up x2goclient ??? - connecting to SL7, if in mode, chromium gets weird with z-order. Fix with setting to
  10. Had a look at the thread and came to the conclusion that the build is REALLY beyond me. I'll just go back to tweaking FREETYPE_PROPERTIES in /etc/environment & chrome://flags
  11. Well I tried it on my MX10, got stuck at gclient sync. I think I'll leave it to more capable people
  12. There seems to be quite a bit looking at This one in particular looks interesting
  13. Source from: Wonder how hard it is to cross compile to Arm?
  14. Armbian_5.76_Aml-s912_Ubuntu_bionic_default_5.0.0-rc8-g8201cd167-dirty_desktop_20190304 up and running USB still flaky though
  15. IIRC, used to add "set-default-sink alsa_output.platform-hdmi-sound.stereo-fallback" in /etc/pulse/ to get hdmi sound to work on boot. YMMV
  16. Anybody can explain this? Hardware: MX10 running Armbian_5.74_Rk3328-tv_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.154_desktop_20190208 with rk3328-mx10-fast.dtb # set max cpu freq sudo cpufreq-set --max=1.30GHz # check cpufreq-info ,, current policy: frequency should be within 600 MHz and 1.30 GHz. The governor "ondemand" may decide which speed to use within this range. .. # run youtube video # ...after some time cpufreq-info .. current policy: frequency should be within 600 MHz and 1.01 GHz. The governor "ondemand" may decide which speed to use within this range. ... # what happened? Never mind. It was powertop being weird
  17. Inserted the opp-1392000000 & opp-1512000000 stanzas into mx10-fast dtb - doesn't boot
  18. Armbian_5.74_Rk3328-tv_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.154_desktop_20190208 with rk3328-mx10-fast.dtb /etc/defaults/cpufrequtils: # WARNING: this file will be replaced on board support package (linux-root-...) upgrade ENABLE=true MIN_SPEED=600000 MAX_SPEED=1512000 GOVERNOR=ondemand cpufreq-info shows hardware limits: 408 MHz - 1.30 GHz available frequency steps: 408 MHz, 600 MHz, 816 MHz, 1.01 GHz, 1.20 GHz, 1.30 GHz I'm sure I had 1.5GHz before all the updates. Anyone have any idea how I might have lost it?
  19. s912 desktop /etc/armbian-release shows VERSION=5.73
  20. They all seem pretty fast and stable at the moment so I don't tinker with them much now. My current pet project is an MX10 with the fast dtb. It has RK3328 with 4Gb ram. Pretty quick on the desktop, only problem is cpu temp hits 100 degrees under full load. Thinking of swapping a bigger heatsink in because I would really like to avoid active cooling.
  21. Thanks. They are all under 25USD when I got them on sale 1. T95Z Plus 3Gb 2. TX9 Pro 3Gb 3. BM8 Pro 2Gb all running off sdcard. Didn't want to risk bricking them by installing to eMMC Maybe I'll try the Phoronix Benchmark Suite one of these days
  22. My S912's running Armbian_5.75_Aml-s912_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.20.5_desktop_20190211 1. T95Z Plus 2. TX9 Pro 3. BM8 Pro and yeah, smooth desktop
  23. sudo stress --cpu 8 --timeout 3600 Lets go look for a bigger/copper heatsink and an open case - trying hard to avoid active cooling :-) I've hit peaks of 100 degrees and it still keeps on going. I guess I've shortened the life quite a bit. From spec sheet max operating temp is 125 degrees!
