HW Acceleration Working
Patience. It is basically finished so soon you'll be able to see it running yourself.

I just released a new Kernel build line "pine64drm" which uses the new DRM display driver which is required as base for any of the mali stuff.

For now consider this a test release and you can switch to the pine64drm Kernel line easily with

Code:
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image/master/simpleimage/platform-scripts/pine64_update_kernel.sh) latest drm

If you happen to use X11 make sure to also install xserver-xorg-video-armsoc-sunxi from my Pine64 Ubuntu PPA.

Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-armsoc-sunxi

You can switch back to the normal Kernel line with
Code:
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image/master/simpleimage/platform-scripts/pine64_update_kernel.sh) latest default
if it does not work for you at this point.

It depends on your feedback if i am going to pursue this further. So let me know how it goes.

Also note that these releases do not include any Mali blobs as currently those cannot be redistributed. I might work something out with a download script. But first things first, get your Pine64 running with the DRM driver and if you use X11 the armsoc-sunx driver as well.

Update: If you want to compare your boot log with how it should look, see http://paste.ubuntu.com/21675783/

Thank you longsleep. I've tried it and sadly I have no sound on debian [mate] with this test release.

Well and you had sound before yes?

Yes. Reverting back to default fixes this issue.

Ok thanks for reporting. Who needs sounds Smile

Also now that you mentioned it, i tried with

Code:
aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono

and it plays just fine for me.

I will test it tomorrow and give you feedback. Also don't know if it was desirable effect but after update desktop resolution changed to my TV's native 4K. Not a big of a deal but I figure out its worth mentioning.

Its expected yes. So 4K works just fine for you then? In theory you should be able to change resolution now with the whatever tool of your desktop environment.

I had not luck so far with enabling armsoc-drv with X, with the version from the PPA I get a kernel oops, when I use one I built on the system, X starts but I get very laggy performance and drawing glitches together with:

Code:
[  501.915967] [drm] sunxi_hdmi_get_edid:add 22 cout modes.
[  502.673713] [drm] sunxi_hdmi_get_edid:add 22 cout modes.
[  514.366715] alloc_contig_range test_pages_isolated(bd990, bde2a) failed
[  514.927801] [drm:lowlevel_buffer_allocate] *ERROR* failed to allocate buffer.
[  519.614826] [drm] sunxi_hdmi_get_edid:add 22 cout modes.
[  520.372640] [drm] sunxi_hdmi_get_edid:add 22 cout modes.
Come have a chat in the Pine A64 IRC channel >>
