Seen this ?

You are kidding me??? Of course I tried that, and on my Pinebook mainline kernel images are not booting at all. I don't have nerves to buy cable do some ironing and debug kernel booting, sorry, I will rather sell it if possible.

By all means, do what what you want - I was just curious Smile

Yes I know. Smile But it is very frustrating.

Hi guys,

Just want to check. Previously, in the ayufan's ubuntu, there was a script to turn on some Sunxi related functionality like 3d acceleration. Is that enabled in the armbian? I tried to run some old games like Half Life and OpenMW, but FPS is really low. I do understand that pinebook and games are very-very far away from each other, but...

Thanks.

I don't think so... I don't see any traces of them in the board support package stuff, and I suspect it's still to experimental and unstable for the Armbian guys to want to incorporate it into their builds.

Nice! Currently on Xenial/Arbmian 5.60 ; Armbian still seem to be the nicest smoothest Linux experience for me on the pinebook imo Smile

Let's try the Bionic version! Smile
