Hello, I use my H96 Pro+ 3GB (S912) for many things,  "download station", VPN, hosting .... all these work fine, but... I have the H96 connected to a televison and sometimes I like to play some games. I have installed mame, it works, but I have to reduce the resolution if I want to play at decent speed, but some games (Golden Axe) has a very very low frame rate. The H96 moves very well Golden Axe in Android, so I supose that there is a problem with mali drivers, no? Any solution? I have tried to install retropie from its git repository but not works. I have installed a MSX emulator and it works, but again I have to reduce the resolution and even with the lowest resolution not works at full speed.

I have installed in sd Bionic 5.5.0-rc6-aml-s9xxx, works very well, but very very slow in mame.

 

Note: if I disabled cores 4-7 works better, but it is not enough, still slow even at lowest resolution

 

Thank you.

Hi , same issue here, i tried some dtb , i can manage to make it run but the ethernet and wifi doesn't work (it's not blinking), it detects some eth0 but can't connect (even on boot is not blinkin anything).

 

I m using a Beelink Ultimate GT1 (s912 3 gb)

 

i m running 5.7.0-rc1-arm-64 bionic desktop

Armbian_20.05.2_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.7.0-rc1_desktop_20200423

 

the dtb i use is gtx-200 if i recall good.

 

It's like the eth0 it's been recognized (but not entirely) but even forcing a good IP it's not connecting/blinking.

 

This is the sudo ethtool eth0

Settings for eth0:
	Supported ports: [TP MII ]
	Supported link modes:	10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
							100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
	Supported pause frame use: Symmetric Receive-only
	Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
	Supported FEC modes: Not reported
	Advertised link modes:	10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
							100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
	Advertised pause frame use: Symmetric Receive-only
	Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
	Advertised FEC modes: Not reported
	Speed: Unknown!
	Duplex: Unknown! (255)
	Port: MII
	PHYAD: 8
	Transceiver: internal
	Auto-negotiation: on
	Supports Wake-on: ug
	Wake-on: d
	Current message level: 0x0000003f (63)
							dry probe link time ifdown ifup
	Link detected: no

What should i do to make it work?

Would be easier if i change the image? i try some but whenever i manage to make it run the eth0 (and wifi) doesn t work.

 

Thanks for any suggestion.
