[Release] TinkerOS_Debian V2.0.8
#11
I think No.13 of changelog is wrong information.
[ 13. Support ES90x8 Q2M based DAC board. ]
This driver seems the driver of Audiophonics I-Sabre DAC.

As for, "Add brightness node and support backlight control for DSI Touch Display". . .

/sys/class/backlight is still empty (unlike Raspbian), and no GUI or other method to control the backlight is apparent to me.

Can you be a bit more explicit about ASUS's implementation of this feature?

Thanks again.

Hi, mikeKey
   Can you try this path /sys/devices/platform/ff150000.i2c/i2c-3/3-0045/tinker_mcu_bl ?
   You can echo 0 ~ 255 into this node.

This is a known issue related to Debian. Need to wait for them to fix it.

I know that this was known. I am sad that Asus released a new version without addressing it.

Just tried the board with an imx219 camera and gstreamer. It does not work well, i cannot get a good image and gstreamer sometime crashes (maybe because of the h264 encoder). Device-tree enables the proper driver (sony,imx219) instead of the crappy rockchip implementation (imx219_v4l2-i2c-subdev) but it does not work as expected.

We still not figure out what is the root cause. We only know that most of the 32 bit SBCs have the same problem.
Below is the bugreport of RPi.
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepor...bug=906548

Of course we can block the update of the chromium package when running the apt upgrade command in the official image.
But we are also afraid that user will always keep the same version of chromium package if we do this tricky thing in our image.
Because user may not know we block the update of chromium package.

Below is the latest workable version of chromium. User can install it manually.

$ sudo apt-get remove chromium
$ sudo dpkg -i [path]/chromium_67.0.3396.87-1_deb9u1_armhf.deb

We forgot to inform that we used a new ISP driver to enable AE/AWB so the gstreamer command needs a little modification.
Please check the below wiki for the part of "USING THE CAMERA"

Try using Vivaldi. I just discovered they have working 32 bit ARM builds available for download. I have installed one and its working quite well, perhaps even better than chromium, considering that you can make netflix work by reading some guides at https://help.vivaldi.com

Hi,

I wonder what ASUS tested before they released v. 2.08. Their media player does not support video acceleration anymore and chromium videos (youtube) are simply a pain in the neck (with h264ify!). Chromium and Thunderbird have again to be downgraded to run and there are other issues unsolved.

Has anybody found solutions there?

I'm glad I did not format my 2.07 version which runs much more smoothly on a 128GB sdcard.
