Darn, it was the stupidest issue. There was no user created other than root, so login screen wasn't showing up. Added a user via ssh, and restarted gdm3 and the login screen promptly showed up :mrgreen: .

As for the upower issue, commenting everything under the section # Namespaces in /usr/lib/systemd/system/upower.service followed up a

Code: Select all

systemctl daemon-reload && systemctl restart upower
gets it working.

I am running Ubuntu 22.04 with kernel 6.6.13-64 on my N2+ 4GB. When I play a YouTube video on Firefox, there is considerable lag in the video. The video resolution is 480p by default. I tried lowering the resolution even further, without much improvement in the playback quality. There is nothing else running on the machine.

Code: Select all

free -h
shows 1.5Gi available memory.

Code: Select all

$ lsmod | grep panfrost
panfrost                      73728   1
drm_shmem_helper              20480   1    panfrost
gpu_sched                     36864   1    panfrost 

$ glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"
direct rendering: Yes

$ glxinfo | grep Device
    Device: llvmpipe (LLVM 15.0.7, 128 bits) (0xffffffff)
My understanding is that llvmpipe is CPU rendering.

I have the following questions:

1. So is GPU acceleration enabled based on the above? Is there anything else I can look at?
2. Is it possible to have a proper playback of videos in the above configuration?

I don't have my n2+ near me, but look into the following:
1. Run one of tobetter's 22.04 images, instead of stock Hardkernel one
2. Firefox doesn't use hardware acceleration, but Chromium can! I can co firm I can play (at least) 720p content in browser without frameskip. Check out the suggestions here: viewtopic.php?p=336710#p336710
3. For better youtube support, ditch the browser and use a project like pipe-viewer + mpv. Some details here: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source= ... Wea6zmexfE

I am getting a lot of these

Code: Select all

[ 6851.101556] axg-tdm-iface audio-controller-1: ASoC: error at snd_soc_component_set_bias_level on audio-controller-1: -5
[ 6851.106707] axg-tdm-iface audio-controller-1: ASoC: Failed to prepare bias: -5

[ 6858.067411] axg-tdm-iface audio-controller-1: ASoC: Failed to prepare bias: -5
in dmesg on a fresh Ubuntu 24.04 kernel 6.6 install on the N2+ 4GB.

Any ideas what's going on here?
