Updating Kernel in TinkerOS

Hello, if I type the following command in Stretch, shows it:

I have 4.4.132+ kernel
Simple question. How can I upgrade the kernel? Raspberry has rpi-update. Armbian has this option in its config tool. How can we do it in Debian/TinkerOS? Thanks!

If you want upgrades, you will need to use Armbian.

O.K... In TinkerOS.


I'm trying to compile myself from kernel.org, but in making process, the resulting files are for armel, not armhf.
Later, when I get them, I don't know if I can simply install them via dpkg.

Does not support such advanced features.

After you fix many many things it will become simple ... This is not x86/Rpi mainstream. Or Armbian.

Armbian supports GPU acceleration? I have tried time ago but didn't work. Perhaps using Bionic and this script? Will it work with 5.5 kernel?

Yes.

Yes. Only with this script. System comes without excessive stuff by default. Not everyone needs this - dirty hacked add-on. TinkerOS/Rockchip doesn't care about security issues and dirty coding.

Not this script but support is under development. On Armbian you can change a kernel without reinstalling the system ... and you can check from time to time if it already works ... or pay attention to release documentation, where such info is published.

We port features to LTS kernels and latest LTS is 5.4.y  / current kernel. When it will work, it will work there ... 5.5.y - AFAIK it doesn't work there either - and up its your problem, but we do provide automated nightly builds which you can test - on your own risk - without the need to recompile.

Hello. I have try again Armbian. I have apply the GPU acceleration patch. Browsers works correctly (Vivaldi, Firefox,. etc).  But I can't  make work Emulationstation. If I install it from source (via retropie_setup.sh), it shows this error:

Code:
CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:
OPENGLES_INCLUDE_DIR (ADVANCED)

If I made myself with cmake-gui-qt and change value GLSystem -> Desktop OpenGL it compiles and runs, but without GPU acceleration. Emulators like PSX directly doesn't work. How can I fix it? Thanks.

Emulationstation is a software that has nothing to do with armbian. I have no clue.

OK, I finally solved. It's off-topic but I post solution because can be useful for somebody.

You need to copy GLES scripts folder in /usr/include

Download it from https://www.mesa3d.org/download.html

I can use OpenGL acceleration with Panfrost on Armbian now. This works quite well.
