32bit linux until Mali is ok?
#1
Hi everyone,
I want to start using my 2gb pine64 as a home server + 4k HTPC.
From what I can tell, it seems like there has been some great progress with the Mali driver but it's not quite ready yet. So I wonder if there's a way to use 32bit linux (not Android though) with supported Mali drivers? Has anyone tried that?
Once all issues with Mali are resolved I will install a 64bit OS.
Thanks!

Hi

For starters, keep your expectations down - its unlikely that a $30 board will replace a $400 4K HTPC.
Secondly, we already have mali working - but there are bugs and issues to be sorted out.
Lastly, there's no 32bit OS for the Pine64.

If all you want is a HTPC why not run kodi on android ?
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

This issue is the memory constraint for 32bits. The 64bit image is required for the 2Gb board. Sit tight,... because things are being sorted as we speak... its an exciting time !
