Armbian on Tinkerboard
#11

Much Appreciated Smile

Hi All,

Sorry for this stupid question, but is this Armbian release supports running Kodi with HW acceleration?
My problem is that I can't find any OS (except Android, what I really hate... Big Grin), what is playing 1080p movies in Kodi without choppyness or vsync problems.

Thank you in advance.

I am running armbian on my tinkerboard, and quite like it.

$ uname -r
tells me my kernel is
4.4.73-rockchip

However not all USB hardware is supported (I want to use a wacom tablet) and I was trying to to build the missing drivers from source on the tinkerboard itself.

I am getting the error message: "unrecognized command line option ‘-mgeneral-regs-only’" which seems to be hardware specific.

Does this mean I have to set some environment variables? (If so what?) or does it mean the supplied GCC won't do what I want? Or am I going about things in completely the wrong way? (In which case I need some guidance pleaseSmile

Thanks
Richard

Have a look here

But for future reference, you might want to open a new thread since this is off topic and doesn't even seem to be armbian related.

Armbian is so far the best except BT and GPU HW acceleration. I think Asus shall sponsor them.

Hello,

I've been using ARMBIAN 5.31 stable Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS 4.11.6-rockchip as a NAS for quite a while now and everything seems to play very well! However, there are some issues like that I can't run a reboot command with terminal without cutting the power. I've tried "sudo reboot", "sudo reboot -f", "/sbin/reboot" etc. Is this a kernel issue or am I running the reboot command wrong? I'm able to reboot through GUI, yet I wan't to do it using terminal.

Edit: I found help at Armbian Forum

Realtime kernel
Fully Preemptible Kernel 4.13.10-rt3-rockchip
https://dl.armbian.com/_misc/realtime-kernel/rockchip/

What do you need?

- Tinkerboard
- Armbian OS
- root credentials

Download: *dtb and *image packages at minimum and install them with dpkg -i *.deb ... if you want to stay on this kernel, freeze upgrades in armbian-config -> system -> freeze kernel upgrades.

Armbian kernel 4.4 supports the Raspberry Pi DSI display, I did not enable this feature until now because I was not going to modify the arch sources (Armbian shares kernel between like processor boards, the Tinker has been a huge headache in general with some very special needs).

It was a simple matter to add the mcu and touch controller to the device tree instead, nightly kernel builds should reflect it in the next few days. If impatient, as always, you can build it yourself.
