Stretch with kernel 4.19.y (Bionic builds lack web-gl support within Chromium for unknown reason)

https://www.armbian.com/pinebook-a64/ (admin, please don't link directly to the images yet since URL will be changed once it's released)

Images are in a developer preview state, upgrades are locked down, ... but most critical functions (except suspend/resume) are working which means build is usable and (need more testing) stable. It's faster and cleaner - no proprietary Allwinner junk - than legacy builds, most of existing compilations ... Mainly based on @anarsoul kernel work + a bunch of our generic A64, kernel and userspace fixes and adjustments.

One image for both Pinebooks!

working: DVFS, battery and brightness control, 3D MALI with open source Lima drivers, Chromium web-dl enabled, profile cached, ...
not enabled or not tested: BT, suspend/resume, sound

There is still a lot of work to get to the pitch perfect state. Thank you for your support!

My favourite ARM Linux distribution on my Pinebook! I already managed to do more with it in an hour than I could with the KDE Neon since I got it. I can't spare much but I threw a little your way. As always the work on Armbian, and all the information you put online is greatly appreciated.

Known problem (for now). It's because Pinebook audio driver is not yet mainlined in 4.19 kernel. It's expected to be fixed in 4.20 kernel (perhaps, it would be released by the end of month).

> Is video acceleration really working?

Who told you that? It is not implemented and there is nobody who will implement this anytime soon. For video acceleration capabilities, you need to stick to old kernel builds for now. Currently we only support Pinebook 720p with this "beautiful" old kernel. 3D acceleration/MALI/LIMA has nothing to do with video acceleration.

We will stay at and port things to 4.19.y which is LTS and our first non-beta build will be receiving updates until everything will be working. No reimaging needed.

You can get audio to work if you unmute it in alsamixer. Don't have a PB with armbian on hand, but this was the case on manjaro and arch running same kernel ...
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
