Just a big THX...!

Post by mægpie »

This device is a real Dream-come-true for me!
Since I saw an Acorn Archimedes back in the 80's I wanted to have an full ARM-driven Computer, and now -finally- I got one!
I use it as my daily driver for two weeks now and I'm so happy with it...

I owe a big Thankyou to all the contributors that made this possible :
  • Hardkernel for this capable Hardware
  • @tobetter,
  • @balbes,
  • @chewitt,
  • @odroid,
  • @hardkernel
  • and all other contributors for pushing the Linux support so hard
  • Special thanks go to "Amazing Alyssa" Rosenzweig for her work on Panfrost
  • and to you, @jgmdev, for bringing this support to us Archlinux-Users and
    hosting your repository
Thank you all very much!

P.S.: I will post some Impressions of my rice'd up N2Plus under the Projects or Alarm Forum later.

Thx for the warm welcome !

I have mine for more than half a year too, and I am willing to say that after days and nights of trial-and-error, countless emmc flashings and reboots I now have a setup that absolutely suit my needs.
The linux-odroid-5.11 kernel runs rock solid, I got the board going continuously for a week and it has never thrown any suspicious log message in the meanwhile.
Also the optimizations to the Panfrost driver in the last two weeks were nearly unreal ...
At the beginning of February i got around ~300 pts at glmark2-es, today nearly 1000. :mrgreen:
