I looked in the /boot directory of the Ubuntu images and it's empty


I found and fix a problem. Some images were corrupted - I did upload new one, but corrupted had higher linking priority. Not anymore ... checking if that happened elsewhere too.

I fixed some u-boot bug, happening in boards with 1GB of RAM, that could not load u-boot. Here is the console log with the failure:

@Neil Armstrong It works from what I can tell, also realized I was using the wrong input on my 4K monitor, switched and was able to verify 4k 60 Hz.  Awesome!  Side note, I saw the patchset land on the mailinglist, will that work on all dw-hdmi 2.0 controllers? 

 

[edit]  @JMCC this was a fresh build, so your bugfix is verified on my side to work with the 2GB board as well.

Good to hear.

 

Also, some comments about wifi. RTL8188CUS (Odroid wifi module 3) has an excellent driver in this kernel. It's much faster and much more stable than in any other kernel I have tried. But support for RTL8188EUS (Comfast WU810N) seems to have been completely dropped, it is not even recognized, while any other Armbian kernel I've used it was recognized although performance wasn't too good. Is this the expected behavior?

Working for me too on my C2. The performance of RTL8188EUS is an order of magnitude faster than legacy kernel, and it doesn't drop connection after a few minutes as before.

I followed your steps and didn't work. I did my tests on an Odroid C2, not sure if that would make a difference. It fails when opening vaapi, and keeps doing SW decoding:

However, I was successful in getting gles to work on X11, using the module from here: https://github.com/superna9999/meson_gx_mali_450. See attached image.

It was just good enough for running glmark2-es2, when I tried to run Chromium with egl, it failed with EGL_BAD_ALLOC.

[EDIT]: No, it was just a bad flag! Chromium WebGL is also working! See attached pic

 

@Neil Armstrong @TonyMac32 Is there any chance that we patch this mali module into the kernel, so we can test it without the need to compile it separately?

@Jmcc I briefly tried it, didn't get anywhere. That would be ideal of course, have it as a patch.

I followed your steps and didn't work. I did my tests on an Odroid C2, not sure if that would make a difference. It fails when opening vaapi, and keeps doing SW decoding:

However, I was successful in getting gles to work on X11, using the module from here: https://github.com/superna9999/meson_gx_mali_450. See attached image.

It was just good enough for running glmark2-es2, when I tried to run Chromium with egl, it failed with EGL_BAD_ALLOC.

[EDIT]: No, it was just a bad flag! Chromium WebGL is also working! See attached pic

 

@Neil Armstrong @TonyMac32 Is there any chance that we patch this mali module into the kernel, so we can test it without the need to compile it separately?

 

 

 

 

Hello @JMCC

 

Could you  kindly tell me how to get gles to work on X11? I want to try mainline kernel with gles on my C2.

 

Thanks so much.

Hello. I'm still testing, I want to post a howto/script when I have some more results.

Aha, I got it. We were missing the firmware.

 

Here is the output of mpv. Notice the line confirming the use of hardware decoding:

Though, performance is far from being good yet. Let's see if I can find some time to package everything I have so far into a script, for others to test too.

 

I'm attaching the firmware here. @Igor I'm going to add it to the armbian/firmware repo.

@Igorthe firnware are stored here https://github.com/LibreELEC/meson-firmware until we manage to get them into linux-firmware...

Here are my results so far with the v4l2 decoder:

  • I'm able to decode h.264 at 1080p correctly.
  • MPEG2 at 1080p, and h.264 at 2160p are accepted by the decoder, but I get no output, it just hangs.
  • HEVC is simply not accepted by the decoder, I can only do SW decoding.

 

Does that correspond to the current status of the driver, or we should be getting something better?

I made a very rough and basic, alpha (or pre-alpha) script, to test the v4l2 decoder and the mali kernel module.

 

I tried to integrate the mali module into the kernel, but I wasn't able to make it work. No matter what I tried, it was always the same: the module was loaded, you could see it in dmesg and in lsmod, but the "/dev/mali" node was never there. I suppose that is why everywhere on the net, people are compiling the mali module separately from the kernel. Any suggestions to sort this problem out are welcome:

 

In any case, this is the thread for the script:

It's not taking the config you're feeding it, if it's doing what it did to me when I tried it.  I know it's not in his 'need to do' list, but perhaps @Neil Armstrong can shed some light?  I've stuffed Midgard drivers into the kernel for in-tree compilation without much difficulty, but these sources are messing with me.  I also don't claim to be a wizard or a professional.

If that's the case, then we can just use the tough solution: change the defaults in the module source to the ones we need. Kind of a dirty fix but, as I said, it is probably just a temporary solution until something is figured out in upstream mainline.

 

[Edit:] However, in any case, that was not my problem. When I made config changes, I could confirm that it was making a difference in the way the module was compiled (either as a module or as part of the kernel), the options it enabled, etc.. But, again, nothing worked. I even got to the point of applying a patch from the Odroid forums to enable UMP, and the "/dev/ump" node would appear, but mali still would not.

It might also be worth looking into simply scripting the cloning and compiling of such out of tree code as part of the board configs, the amount of work to graft this stuff in can be time consuming.  On another note, did you get the firmwares into the package system?

But that would mean losing the module when the board updates the kernel, if I'm not wrong. We would need to do a DKMS package for the module, and that can be time consuming too. Specially if you consider that I tried to compile the module natively on the board and it wouldn't work, so we would need to figure out that problem too.

The function might be able to be hooked into the makedeb part of the kernel build script, I haven't spent more than 2-3 minutes considering the option, mostly brainstorming, since this won't be the last such piece of code.

DX910-SW-99002-r7p0-00rel1_meson_gx

I tried to build a Mali module (two versions 6 and 7), executed a script on the system (to install all the files and settings, but left my kernel with Mali modules for Khadas VIM1). When launching the Mali module, the kernel is automatically accepted and the system has a "/dev/mali" device. When you start MPV, the video plays in a window without brakes (with the resolution that the video file itself has) . If the resolution of the desktop 1080, run video 720, the window runs without brakes, but if you try to expand to full screen, the video starts to slow down. Tried Gstreamer, it starts, but when you try to play something, there is nothing on the screen and no sound. This behavior with both Mali 6 and 7 modules (when I replace the module, I also change the libMali library to the same version from the m450-X directory from GIT ). How can I check the overall operation of the armsoc driver ? Perhaps there are some commands\utilities that can show that the driver is using HW mode ?

Using mpv from the command line console should give you a log, with info about the decoder and display driver it is using. Also with gst-play-1.0 for gstreamer.

 

Also, running glmark2-es2 will tell you whether it is using Mesa SW emulation, or Mali.

 

For last, if you have configured chromium to use acceleration (like my script does), you can check whether it is working by typing in the address bar "chrome://gpu"

 

Edit: And, of course, you can also check /var/log/Xorg.0.log

I added Mali sources to the kernel sources to build the module together with the kernel. The module is built and the system can load it, but HW does not work and the size of the module is significantly smaller than the one that is built according to the old scheme from a separate directory. Perhaps you need additional options or settings ? I don't know which ones. May be more experienced comrades will be able to suggest what else need to add to fix it ?

 

During the tests, I found several reasons (which are not immediately noticeable) that affect the launch of HW. The sources of the kernel should be only 4.19 (with the corresponding patches), if you try at 4.20, like everything is, but HW does not work. Just be sure to need a script control Hot-HDMI. I wonder why HW doesn't work without it ?

Yes, that's the point where everybody gets stuck. @TonyMac32 suggested some posts above that the driver may not be getting the config you feed it, so maybe that can be the cause for the problem.

 

I may give it some other try, but the truth is that I don't think it is worth spending much time on this, until some steps are taken upstream. The v4l2-m2m driver is still immature, and there are also chances that the Lima driver can be mainlined for the next release (see some posts above). It is probably time to wait, and work in some other projects in the meantime (like Rockchip).

 

However, as I said, I may give a try to the possibility of hardcoding the compile options, as a possible temporary solution, as I mentioned some posts above.

if I change the configuration kernel, change the size of the module. And I added options from the build script 'buid.sh" in the makefile itself. If select the option in the UMP kernel configuration, the build fails.

 

I also do not plan to spend a lot of time, but you can try. :)

So I'm on a fresh build of a Le Potato desktop...  I'm able to run at 1080p just fine, but no easy config for the higher 2k or 4k resolutions... I tried both latest dev kernel, and next kernel....    Not sure how hard I try to make it work via X config... or go kernel hunting, device tree hacking or what.....   maybe the "default" kernel? eww

(My Tritium H5 can do it :P... same monitor, same cables etc)
