0.7.9 Linux release from ayufan
#1
Star 
Hello everyone,

ayufan marked 0.7.8 as the new Linux release for RockPro64.
It contains many improvements and enables many features that were missing in 0.6.44, so I strongly suggest everyone either upgrade (as per ayufan's instructions):

Code:
sudo apt-get update -y
sudo apt-get install linux-rockpro64 -y


... or just run a fresh install.
The changelog from 0.6.44 is quite extensive so I suggest you read it on the release page. If you encounter issues with this (or future 0.7.X builds) report them in this thread or directly on github.

Enjoy!

Is this only for Rock Pro 64 or for Rock64 too? I just did upgrade and install linux-rock64 and I see:
Linux rock64 4.4.126-rockchip-ayufan-239 #1 SMP Sun May 27 18:38:24 UTC 2018 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Is that right (for a Rock64)?

The AMPAK AP6359SA based Wifi/Bluetooth module on the store is not working on this version 0.7.8.

ab1jx,
Yes - seems like the Rock64 upgrade process has some issues at the time - ayufan will address the problem in the 0.7.8 Rock64 thread.

samtsai5212,
Correct - read the changelog.

Just installed ubuntu minimal bionic 64 and apt-get update fails as the ayufan repo origin has changed to github.

Is this a temp or perm change? As haven't had time to check how to force or change the apt reference.

Well, this Rock64 is quite healthy, on my 3rd install, plus the updates/upgrades.  Hit 5 days of uptime, I'm just building current LLVM and Clang from sources because trying to build Firefox 61 indicated the deb versions were too old.  If it stays this stable I might move it to the big monitor.  No HDMI sound, that's soon to be the biggest issue.  smplayer seems to work with full acceleration and minimal CPU drain.  es2gears peaks around 185 FPS, even while compiling with 1 thread.

Wonder what Trump's tarriffs are going to do to the price of these things.

Not sure for R64 but for RP64 no problem, first check which card the HDMI is (on RP64 its card 2), then set ~/.asoundrc accordingly. Mine are below.

Code:
$ aplay --list-devices
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: rockchipes8316c [rockchip,es8316-codec], device 0: ff890000.i2s-ES8316 HiFi ES8316 HiFi-0 []

Nope, I see the device, it just doesn't do anything.  Even speaker-test doesn't do anything, and alsactl init was about the first thing I did.
Code:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: HDMI [HDMI], device 0: ff000000.i2s-i2s-hifi i2s-hifi-0 []

card 2: SPDIF [SPDIF], device 0: ff030000.spdif-dit-hifi dit-hifi-0 []

 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I have an idea, it may not pan out.  I'm using kmshelper to load an EDID file to pick a video mode.  Except this is a 128 byte EDID, the newer 256 byte format has sound stuff in it too.  Maybe a 128 byte leaves the sound area blank.

I'm not seeing the "rockchipes8316c [rockchip,es8316-codec], device 0: ff890000.i2s-ES8316 HiFi ES8316 HiFi-0 [" stuff though, that could be significant.  Like it's not loading a driver and probing the device.  Debian Stretch minimal from ayufan_stretch-minimal-rock64-0.6.41-227-arm64.img with updates and upgrades since.

Also all of mine say i2s in them, even the HDMI.  Somewhere I saw a list of devices like hdmi, i2s, spdif.

Is there any work around or solution for this issue? I understand is if this is still being worked on. Thanks!
