Switching Meson64-DEV to 5.2.y ...

Recommended Posts

Fine - will test it then with my Odroid C2 with S905

(Amlogic S905 = Meson64 - I dont know why I every time mix up Meson64 with a A64 CPU in my mind :( )

Good ! Tell us if everything is fine ...

Today I booted the Desktop-version.

On the shell/cli-side seems all OK.

At the Desktop-side Graphics do work well (can play Youtube :)) - but I cant get any sound out of my HDMI monitor :( 

 

aplay -l shows:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: mesongxaudio [meson-gx-audio], device 0: meson-aiu-i2s.0.auto-i2s-hifi i2s-hifi-0 []
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

alsamixer doenst show any controls.

 

In desktop-mode the system seems to use PulseAudio, but did only found a Dummy-Device and not the mesongxaudio.

 

Do I miss some setting?

Was it working under 5.1.y ?

If Yes, maybe I can look if DT were different between 5.1.y and 5.2.y ...

I cant tell, because the C2 is the "black sheep" of my SBC-family :)
With this version of armbian the support seems to be much better than the last one I tested (and mostly I tested headless, because support wasnt the best).

 

So I would say there was no sound-support in 5.1 and there is no sound-overlay.

USB-Soundcard does work.

 

The decompiled .DTB doesnst show also nothing about HDMI-Audio...

 

My be in the far future there will be a patch used like

https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/patch/kernel/meson64-default/0035-ARM64-dts-meson-activate-hdmi-audio-HDMI-enabled-boa.patch

or

https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/patch/kernel/meson64-default/0025-snd-meson-activate-HDMI-audio-path.patch

 

For me - I think - a desktop SBC will start at 4GB of Ram and working Video-Acceleration and Sound.

The C2 is getting near...but with 2GB of Ram a very good headless SBC now :)

It seems that such few patches are there in DEV also, but I don't have much time right now to figure out, "time is still the missing ingredient" ...
