Question Remix OS 2.0 [20170105] Waaaa???
Posted by: veronicasmithen03 - Yesterday, 02:58 PM - Forum: Remix OS - No Replies

So I haven't seen it mentioned in this section that on the Wiki page there is a newer Remix OS release dated 2017/01/05.  What exactly is the difference/advantage to running that version over the latest version discussed here? I don't see any mention of it here, so I am unsure whether there is any difference/advantage?

It's getting a bid odd having multiple versions of the same OS, in different places. Some of the OS's on the Wiki page seem to be the "wrong" version. Example - people are being told to use the Android 6 img that's from ayufan on the forum/github, but there are three android v6 builds there - two of them being newer than ayufan's builds.

  Enabling wolfson wm8960 i2c/i2s sound codec
Posted by: saro - Yesterday, 07:23 AM - Forum: Hardware, Accessories and POT - Replies (1)


I'm trying to use the chip wolfosn wm8960, that is connected with I2C interface and I2S bus.
Polling it on the I2C bus, the peripheral is recognized with address 0x1a on i2c-1, but nothing related to this device like sound card found.

Another preliminary step follewed is the kernel compilation, making by activation the driver wm8960 found in sound/soc/devices/ like built-in and enabling all voices found in  "--- ASoC support for SUNXI" of menuconfig.

At this step, applying the new kernel, I don't found any peripheral with arecord -l or aplay -l or with pactl command and there isn't any row in the syslog/kernlog that show me that the wm8960 device is found.

There are few references for this codec, but I'm trying to follow the guide posted for another soc (i.MX6) in which the device driver already built-in inside the kernel source tree, showed at: https://community.nxp.com/docs/DOC-106295

Another link (for i-MX6) report also that:

Driver location: linux/sound/soc/codecs/wm8960.c
Machine driver location: linux/sound/soc/imx/imx-wm8960.c

1.In Kernel Configuration, go to
Device Drivers --> Sound card support --> Advanced Linux Sound Architecture --> ALSA for SoC audio support --> SoC Audio for Freescale i.MX CPUs -->

2.Select <*> SoC Audio support for IMX boards with WM8960

In this case, I found
but nothing related to
Machine driver location: linux/sound/soc/imx/imx-wm8960.c

I have to specify, for example, some configuration in the dts device tree?
Is impossible to see the peripheral because there isn't the imx-wm8960.c machine based driver file matching the pine64 board?

Can someone help me, please?

Thanks in advance.

I want to install Ubuntu Mate on the latest version of Armbian. I am using Armbian since the latest version has support for the 7" touchscreen. I have never installed a GUI desktop, so any help would be appreciated.

  Audio Extractor
Posted by: Ralck - 05-24-2017, 09:40 PM - Forum: Hardware, Accessories and POT - Replies (1)

Hey all,

First, I apologize if this is not in the right section.  Please move it if there is a better section!

Second, I did a search and from what I could tell, there was only one other thread regarding using an audio extractor and they never mentioned if they tried it or if it worked.

I recently bought one of those cheap audio extractors off Ebay to try to get optical audio to my receiver.  It doesn't have an option to pull the audio directly out of the HDMI signal.  Unfortunately, I cannot seem to get the device to work with the Pine.  It doesn't appear to ever negotiate the HDMI signal or something so it displays no video and no sound.  As a test, I used my laptop and it is able to display video and extract audio (albeit at only 2 channels) just fine.  Has anyone been successful in getting one of these devices to work?

I'm trying to use Android TV to use the Pine as an HTPC replacement.  I have never been able to get the analog audio jack to work either, if that makes any difference.  I bought my Pine (1GB model) through the kickstarter campaign.

Thanks in advance!

Question Nginx proxy on Remix OS -- possible?
Posted by: mitchmitchell - 05-24-2017, 09:20 AM - Forum: Remix OS - No Replies


I have Remix OS on my Pine64+ set up to act as a proxy for my security camera dvr setup because the dvr is very insecure.  I'm using IP Cam by Robert Chou as a front end which at least closes the glaring holes in the dvr, but I'd like to add an additional layer of security in front of that by using nginx as a proxy with password protection before the IP Cam webserver can be accessed.   

Is it possible to install and configure nginx on Remix OS?
