That happens with mainline linux kernels or some displays, with the 4.9.x kernels it works (as far as I remember most of the time), not sure if other distros experience the same issue or what to enable on the 5.x kernels to fix it. I use this kernel parameter to force resolution video=HDMI-A-1:1920x1080@60 but last time I tested, that also didn't help with one of my displays (samsung). Haven't been using petitboot for a long time because of this :(
So I have to manually remove the emmc (on which I have Android) to boot from SD. Thanks for the info.

Too late for me to go in depth, had fun with your Panfrost build and other desktops. Got a glmark2 score of 272 in KDE Plasma with Panfrost default memory hogging background, it was extremely smooth, no tearing. I know this is nothing compared to wayland scores, but panfrost is coming up!

Really nice! So those results are running KDE Plasma non-wayland? Last time I tested under XFCE it wasn't working that fast, will have to give it another shot!

yep, i am going to rebuild and poke around at it to see what else it can do. I have been busy on a full accelerated ubuntu wayland desktop install guide for new N2+ owners like me. Oh, and all X11 stuff runs at that "better" speed. Which is way faster than before heh. For anyone loving non wayland desktops and programs this is your best bet by far.

Then it wasn't my imagination because I did notice gnome shell animations rendering much more smoother :D

Hi, great, have to try image! I am looking for a vertical screen solution with HW GUI support. I play with an N2+ at the moment. Should it be possibe to rotate the screen 90 degree and keep the hardware acceleration? Take care and keep the good work!

Just tested, and screen rotation does not work correctly with 5.9 and the panfrost driver under X. It might work under Wayland but I haven't tested that. But - I wouldn't bank on it working.

Edit: wrong - it's working fine. 🀦

Using XFCE with compiz, changed the display settings and it worked, this was using the panfrost driver coupled with mesa panfrost. Using gnome should work also.

Strange, maybe it depends on display brand, using a samsung here.

Ah, could well be because of the monitor I'm using - it's connected with an HDMI->DVI cable and 5.9 on the N2+ doesn't like it very much.

Edit: Wait, tested again. It works fine, it just didn't resize my wallpaper so the bottom half of the screen was black and I jumped to the wrong conclusion... 🀦
