NEED HELP with installing Mali Graphic Drivers (XU4)

Unread postby azerthie » Wed Jul 11, 2018 5:06 pm

Hello, I'm newbie here, and I just bought ODROID-XU4 for NAS. I successfully installed OMV image to my XU4 and I'm happy for it.
But I wanted to install Kodi as well in my OMV-installed XU4 for the use of all-in-one media device. (And for purpose of watching TV with it)
I installed Kodi with apt-get, but it comes with an error with no GUI. So I thought the problem is because of no GUI, and no graphic drivers in OMV image. (Armbian Based)
I found 5422_mali driver from GitHub, which posted by mdrjr (https://github.com/mdrjr/5422_mali), and I git cloned it and used the 'make' command. But it changes nothing.
So, I was just wondering, somebody who have a generous mind can teach me how to install graphic driver for gui-excluded OS? I will be grateful. Thank you.

Since Armbian/OMV have a different kernel-land and user-land Mali drivers from our official Ubuntu, it is not easy to know what causes the problem.
You also need to try Kodi/Mali packages in our official repo or meveric's repo.

You might need to check the functionality of Mali driver with es2gears or glmark2-es2 on the command line first.
Also post your question on the Armbian or OMV forum.

Hi. Thanks for your reply. I can't even execute es2gears because I don't have it. So I was wondering, this may be a silly question, can you tell me how to add odroid repository or meveric's repo? Thanks once again.

Try meveric's repo first since it was based on Debian.

You must backup your important data first becasue your OS file system can be fully corrupted due to unknown incompatibilities.
