If LibreELEC is open enough to get other software running on it ( I'd like ssh/sshd, nfsd, some other network clients, support for typical file systems, usual shell tools), then I'm enthusiastic.

LibreELEC is 'Just enough OS' for Kodi, aka no package manager, aka pointlessly crippled.

I'll buy some rock64s the day they can play 4K60P HDR on Debian.

I'm in the same boat. Saw an article someplace and thought great! Wanted it as a webserver and media player, especially for 4k HDR. Ignorantly assumed there would be hardware decoding support given it uses a common [font=Arial, 宋体,]Mali-450 MP2 video decoder. Seems like it's a lot more complicated than that. It's a huge pity, these boards live or die based on software support. Lesson learned.[/font]

[font=Arial, 宋体,]The RK3328 seems to be the poor relation, the RK3399 for example seems to have full Kodi support.[/font]

Presume if they have the libs to run RK on LibreElec then its highly likely someone will port them to other distro's.

Also you can add a package manager to LibreElec https://www.artembutusov.com/libreelec-e...tallation/

Even though haven't got a clue to what the entware-ng repo contains but hey Smile

Also haven't checked about Arm64 but presuming there are a number of interesting options and with an early board we are just waiting for options.

Maybe OSMC / FTMC depending on Linux / Android even https://github.com/JamesLinEngineer/RKMC

Yea, LongChair and Kwiboo have done a lot in the short space of just a few weeks. More devs are getting the boards now ... lets give it a little time.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

Slightly better links for progress
   https://github.com/Kwiboo/linux-rockchip...ckchip-4.4
and issues

looks like Kwiboo lacks documentation; rockchip is not fully developer friendly.
Hope it goes well.

It is true that I do not have access to VPU documentation but the progress is going very well and we have very good support from Rockchip.
(There is not many vendors that are willing to share such documentation without any NDA in place)

The main task that is still on my todo is to complete nl-pcm/hbr audio support before upstreaming can start, see https://github.com/Kwiboo/LibreELEC.tv/t...ces/ROCK64 for current work-in-progress tree and status.

LongChair have already started the upstreaming process for ffmpeg, see https://patchwork.ffmpeg.org/patch/5062/ for the latest patch version.
