I'll try this out this evening.
Interestingly, due to which the Odroid-N1 has higher performance in the rating DietPi?

First of all, the Odroid-N1 is no more. Secondly, regarding file performance, probably because their eMMC modules are faster (than original/ older) than PINE64 eMMC modules.
As for the CPU, DietPi uses ayufan's kernel and for the time being ayufan chose "stability over performance" - so the rk3399 is clocked a little slower (1.8ghz).
I had a look at this last night. Even though it says GPU features (e.g. Kodi, Desktop) don't work, you can get to the desktop if you tweak the xserver config a bit. It looks like it still needs work though. Youtube and similar websites weren't working. I tried experimenting with manually installing some of ayufan's libmali stuff but that didn't help.
I installed DietPI.
I couldn't setup xserver (screen not found).
Could you tell us what you did in order to bring up the xserver?

Besides that, it's amazing.
It has an EXCELLENT setup menu, and it's really fast!
I think it's faster than the bionic lxde.

I think I commented out something in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, don't remember if it was a line that said "armsoc" or not, but it might be.

Try commenting out the driver line in that file and see if that helps.
You where right.
It was in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
I renamed the armsoc config.

No sound and GPU accelaration.
Same issues with PCIe card (system freezes in X11)

Still, is great as a server Smile
Added DietPi (v6.14) on Pine64 Installer

Thanks for posting this, I was able to get xorg to run by doing this, but does this prevent X from utilizing the MALI T-860?
