Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?


The problem with NXP I.Mx 8M cpu is lack of XORG 3D GPU support. Driver does not work.

only 2D driver works.

You can run XFCE and MATE destop without play video. ( video very often hangs system ) .

Wayland 3D driver works with weston pulpit. But weston is on early stage of build.

In fact, there is no multitasking. Works similar to AndroidTV or something like that.
