If you're connecting via HDMI, the distributions on this page should support the display :

If you wish to ask questions about a specific distro, you should have better luck here:

What are you asking for specifically ? If you are asking about resolution and refresh hz then you can set them from the desktop.

I finally had time to bring up my Rock64-4GB board. Burned the latest ayufan Mate (non-emmc) image to uSd and all went well with one exception. My favorite monitors are a pair of 1600x1200 displays. The Rock64 only allows 800x600. There are no additional options in the Settings->Display utility. It recognizes the HP device. Is there a way to force the 1600x1200 at boot?

I have issues with hdmi output on my rock64.

I'm connecting rock64 to Waveshare 7 inch LCD (1024x600) by HDMI cable, but I can see only part of output:
[img=1024x600]https://i.imgur.com/gQZuPYa.jpg[/img]

Tested with almost all available images (with or without desktop): Debian, DietPi, Ubuntu.

fbset -v output

mode "800x600"
    geometry 800 600 800 600 32
    timings 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
    accel true
    rgba 8/16,8/8,8/0,0/0
endmode

LCD is working fine with other boards (RPI3, RPI2).
HDMI output to LG TV (1980 x 1080) also works fine.

Does any one know what can cause the above issue?

I'm not sure anyone ever answered this question.

I have a 1600x1200 dell monitor and would like to run linux with it. How do I do that? Do I need to compile the kernal with support for that resolution?

Thanks Dazz

Hi,

I now have my Dell [email protected] monitor working with my Rock64 Big Grin , I've not done a lot of testing and I know there is already an issue when I use my KVM switch to move to my PC, when I move back the display dose not work. Also I've only tested in command line mode and not in a desktop mode, but it's a step in the right direction.

I found this http://wiki.radxa.com/Rock/Hdmi_Resolution witch pointed me in the right direction

How to:

edit the source file linux-kernel-release-4.4/drivers/video/rockchip/rockchip-hdmi-lcdc.c and create a new hdmi_video_timing entry at the bottom of the existing list

Code:
        {
                /* Dell 2700FP */
                .mode = {
                        .name = "[email protected]",
                        .refresh = 60,
                        .xres = 1600,
                        .yres = 1200,
                        .pixclock = 162000000,
                        .left_margin = 64,
                        .right_margin = 80,
                        .upper_margin = 50,
                        .lower_margin = 6,
                        .hsync_len = 20,
                        .vsync_len = 8,
                        .sync = 0,
                        .vmode = 0,
                        .flag = 0,
                },
                .vic = HDMI_VIDEO_DMT | 11,  //512 | 11 = 523 remember this for defaulting the screen res
                .vic_2nd = 0,
                .pixelrepeat = 1,
                .interface = OUT_P888,
        },

Then edit linux-kernel-release-4.4/drivers/video/rockchip/rockchip-hdmi.h to set the display mode as default. not tested without this yet...
Code:
//#define HDMI_VIDEO_DEFAULT_MODE                       HDMI_1280X720P_60HZ
#define HDMI_VIDEO_DEFAULT_MODE            523 //[email protected]

Will post again once I've done some more testing....
