Unable to make Panfrost work on H6


Recommended Posts

Hi, Armbian gurus.

 

I just try the latest kernel & modules(including /boot, /lib/modules/5.8.7-sunxi64 ) ripped out and put into my working panfrost(mostly)/DRM-Plane ready image.

Anything graphical including X window and Kodi become unbearably slow somehow.

I'm reading over the kernel configuration, but allow me to ask this at the same time:

 

Besides the kernel and module configuration, is there other factor might cause this?

Should I use the earlier DTB/DTS from my previous working version? Any chance to conflict with 5.8 kernel or other side effect?

 

Thank you.

Thanks to Werner, I have a stable desktop on my Orange Pi 3 running the Armbian_20.05.4_Orangepi3_focal_current_5.4.45_desktop.img.xz (stable release).  MOD can put this elsewhere if it belongs in tutorials and not bugs.

 

Here is how to step through his fix for anyone new to linux (like myself).

1. After flashing and setting root and user, the user will be logged into the graphical Xfce desktop environment (DE) and will freeze soon.

2. On the next reboot you can try to use one of the separate terminals instead of the DE.  This is done by holding CTRL+ALT and selecting F1-F6

3. Quickly log into root account and type the following "sudo systemctl set-default multi-user"  This will disable the DE next time you load.

4. The system may freeze as the DE is being loaded, so its best to reset and log into the bash shell with root again.

5. We have to setup a shell script that runs every boot, as the files that Werner overwrites get replaced every time. We will edit/etc/rc.local

6. Goto "cd /etc/ " and chose your favorite editor.  I used vim, so I type "vim rc.local" to start editing.

7.  Add the lines that Werner posted earlier to the rc.local file 


cd /sys/devices/platform/soc/1800000.gpu/devfreq/1800000.gpu/
echo userspace > governor
echo 756000000 > max_freq
echo 756000000 > min_freq

8. Save and exit to shell.

9. last step is to enable the DE again, type "systemctl set-default graphical"

10.  Reboot and enjoy a stable desktop.

 

It took me about a day to have this working, mainly because of me not understanding the the GPU clock values were getting reset and not knowing unix commands & file structure.  It reminded me as a kid messing with the autoexec.bat on a ms-dos machine.  I am hoping to use an SDR and make this into a HD Radio Decoder (already built the NRSC-5 & GUI) , have it stream to an android head unit in my car & control via VNC.

 

Could someone inform me if this is all that needs to be done? 
I'm back using the H6. I've updated my install script for panfrost with an H6 install with this code added to do the above :
 

function h6 {
cat <<EOT >> /etc/rc.local
cd /sys/devices/platform/soc/1800000.gpu/devfreq/1800000.gpu/
echo userspace > governor
echo 756000000 > max_freq
echo 756000000 > min_freq
EOT
}

Any more details about this I should know? Sorry, been a while...
If someone could try the script for me and inform if it works? Also updated meson version to meson_0.55.3-1.
Should I also include the oibaf repo? Or doesn't this work anymore?
I'll try it later, first need to do other tests. Cheers. 

Edit : Didn't work. Tried to write a simpler script, but got error:
python (3.x) mako module = 0.8.0 required to build mesa
 

#!/bin/bash
sudo apt -y install python3-setuptools ninja-build

wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/m/meson/meson_0.55.3-1_all.deb
dpkg -i meson_0.55.3-1_all.deb
cd ~
git clone https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa -b master
cd ~/mesa
mkdir build && cd build
meson -Ddri-drivers= -Dvulkan-drivers= -Dgallium-drivers=lima,panfrost,kmsro -Dlibunwind=false -Dprefix=/usr
ninja install

I never have luck with the H6. Used PineH64 with Armbian_20.08.2_Pineh64-b_focal_current_5.8.6_desktop.img

Not sure. I used the gived command from Freedesktop:

 


 meson .. . -Ddri-drivers= -Dvulkan-drivers= -Dgallium-drivers=panfrost,kmsro 

https://panfrost.freedesktop.org/building-panfrost-mesa.html

That doesn't change anything. That's why I tried the other command. It seems an issue with python3. I know nothing of python and its terrible configuration.

Never had any issues with python when playing with Panfrost AFAIR...

Try to install the module with pip3 install Mako

Maybe do a pip3 install --upgrade pip before to update the installer itself.

 

Depending on your OS the command might be different or not available at all. If necessary search apt for python3 pip and install it.

I tried this but still the same issue. I don't get it.

I do get a warning when installing pip.

Fun fact: When I played around with panfrost I took the pain in the butt and collected all necessary dependencies by hand because I did not know :lol:

Just found out what broke my buildscript. python-pip can't be installed from the repo. Unable to locate package python-pip.
What made the whole list of other dependencies not install. Also meson 0.55 seems to have a bug and 0.49 must be used.

That was why I had included it in my script originally. But dumb me removed the original script and thought using latest meson would work. I often forget why I did things a particular way.

I think it's now installing, I'll cross my fingers :thumbup:

I'm back using the H6. I've updated my install script for panfrost with an H6 install with this code added to do the above :

 

Hi, NicoD

 

I actually enjoy your video @ youtube a lot. Thank you first.

 

According my current 5.6 kernel: Yes, the GPU clockrate is required to imposed. Or it will get really unstable if you enable panfrost.

If you have a newer kernel, you might try it without setting clockrate first. If thing went bad for you, just remember to try this.
 

I use the kernel ripped from libreELEC at https://gitlab.com/FuyuriSeiji/linux-5.6-le

I made changes into build system config to use this kernel

For the root, I use Gentoo's and emerge mesa with VIDEO_CARDS="panfrost."

And the patched of ffmpeg at https://gitlab.com/FuyuriSeiji/ffmpeg 

These enable my setup to have hardware decoding with DRMPRIME kodi. 

 

If you have ever bumped any problem, you might consider what I list here as alternative approach.

Good luck
