I read from beginning and I see people with same problem but they don't answer if sound works using armbian, but answer for lireleec. Are there people suing armbian and sound is working?

... I also didn't get any sound when I did testings but it was a quick test without any research so I can't conclude nothing out of that. If people report its not working, then its not working and if sound is working in Librelec means that it can be fixed without extensive work. But its still work and since development is amateur ... its done when its done. One is for sure - only HDMI sound can be brought up, while there are no drivers for analogue.

I tried Orange Pi One Plus H6 version of LibreElec from here: https://test.libreelec.tv, sound is working through HDMI, also detects resolution with HDMI-VGA converter and in both cases  i have sound and hardware accelerated graphics, youtube at full fps with audio sync.


I disabled 2 cores with

echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu2/online

echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu3/online


and works perfect without heatsink.


But sadly this is not what I want, I need X11 with hardware acceleration and chrome browser, I tested in Armbian and works ok, but without sound.


Also I tested recent Xunlong orange pi mainline kernel and I have audio but no graphics acceleration and no thermal sensors, I tried to recompile kernel myself several times with different settings without good results.


I'm struggling with this for several days, perhaps with mainline version in Xunlong OrangePi repositories plus LibreElec dtb/dts, and https://github.com/warpme/minimyth2/tree/master/script/kernel/linux-5.4/files patches someone like Igor can enable sound, I'm years away of knowledge needed, I dedicated about 12 days (almost full-time)  trying to have a distro working with sound and video, I purchased 3 different sd cards, I downloaded and built All Oficial repositories  images of OrangePi with kernel 4.9 and mainline and I failed every time to get all working together, I tried several versions of Ubuntu, Debian, I debootstraped rootfs of debian and also of course I tried Armbian, for me this last one is perfect, stable and great, so if anyone can make sound via HDMI working will be great for all newbies like me.
