Another update of kernel 5.4.y = various "multimedia fixes" and other general fixes https://docs.armbian.com/Release_Changelog/

Update: images must be version 20.02.3 or higher.

Ok... Call me slow, but how do you enable hardware acceleration? I'm running a clean install of Armbian Bionic and es2_info shows:

Code: Select all

EGL_CLIENT_APIS: OpenGL OpenGL_ES 
GL_VERSION: OpenGL ES 3.0 Mesa 19.2.8
GL_RENDERER: llvmpipe (LLVM 9.0, 128 bits)
My 02-driver.conf is:

Code: Select all

# set fbdev as default driver.
Section "Device"
         Identifier "NOGPU"
         Driver "fbdev"
EndSection
Is hardware acceleration not standard on this build with the 5.4.35-meson64 kernel?

I was hoping to play around with a MythTV frontend and Kodi on this board and wanted accelerated video...

Thank you!

For multimedia features, better stick to Kernel 4.9.y. On 5.4.y things are certainly not matured and I have no idea if you can get where you want ... not my field of interest ... for other general tasks, you might be happy with 5.4.y or more recent.

You mean I can't have everything I want?!?! :D

No, I understand. I may play around with the 4.9.y just to see but having the 5.4.y is more important to me as my C2 acts as my wireguard server at home for when I travel (not that I'm doing much of that now!).

Well, I might also be wrong, multimedia is not my field ... and I anway mixed things up (C2 and N2), which is now happening me daily :)

If you are asking for C2, then MM should be almost there if not there yet, while N2 needs a bit more. For KODi I can't tell since I avoid installing it on Debian/Ubuntu. I rather use Librelec for that.

Yes, I was asking for the C2. I built the armbian Focal image for the C2 to play with (it literally just finished building). I poked around the kernal options before compiling and it appears all the Mesa / lima drivers are flagged to be built as modules. I've used linux for many years but I'm somewhat inexperienced when it comes to something like this. Good learning opportunity! I have no idea what I'm doing but I've already made an image of my stock system so I can play around all I want without worry of breaking something!

Is it possible to upgrade from Armbian Bionic to Focal?

Can I simply point the apt sources to Focal and run apt dist-upgrade?

Possible? Yes.
Verified? No.

Check Armbian forums - somebody certainly tried.
