LibreELEC
#1
Any one had success running LibreELEC? In the wikipage has a link for LibreELEC images but a couple of days ago only a .tar file was available at the pointed repository, not a flashable img.gz.

Today, i checked the repo and an .img.gz file had appeared. Just flashed a MMC, but the system wouldn't boot.
Maybe SD? Any one had success with it?

PS: I find it very misleading the official wikipage point to an image that won't even boot. I suggest to remove the link, there.

Added a healthwarning to the wiki!

(Figure better than removing the link because that would need a wiki editor to test each new release and then re-instate the deleted bits if/when it is viable.)

I've been checking on this since it was first mentioned on the Wiki. I checked again today and noticed there'd been an update to the source code in the past day in the Rockchip section. I scanned through the changes and it looked quite substantial, looks like the Linux version was updated and there were changes relating to the RK3399. I thought I'd go ahead and try the latest nightly just to see if anything had changed. 

And lo and behold the thing boots! You see the LibreElec screen now. However it doesn't get any further than that. It does get an IP address for a while but it gets stuck in a loop. 

The good thing though is that I checked on the second partition of the SD card and there's a folder called Logs. And in it were zip files full of all kinds of logs, including one called 01_KODI_CRASH.log. One of the other logs was 09_Journal-cur.log and in there it showed it trying to start kodi repeatedly and failing repeatedly:

Code:
Aug 23 00:07:21 LibreELEC systemd[1]: kodi.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=134/n/a
Aug 23 00:07:21 LibreELEC systemd[1]: kodi.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

Aug 23 00:07:37 LibreELEC systemd[1]: kodi.service: Service RestartSec=2s expired, scheduling restart.


In the kodi crash log there were these error lines, which probably show what went wrong:

Code:
00:04:36.941 T:4075023936   ERROR: CDRMUtils::FindConnector - could not get connector: No such device
00:04:37.115 T:4075023936   ERROR: Previous line repeats 9 times.
00:04:37.115 T:4075023936   ERROR: CWinSystemGbm::InitWindowSystem - failed to initialize Atomic DRM

00:04:37.375 T:4075023936 WARNING: CGBMUtils::DestroySurface - surface already destroyed


So if anyone else wants to try it and look through the logs you can, maybe you can figure out what the problem might be. Also instead of the white LED turning on and staying lit after booting, mine was going through a flashing pattern. It would flash 2 times, pause a bit, flash 2 times....

LibreElec now works on the Rockpro64. The image can be found here: http://cvh.libreelec.tv/test/RK3399/
Someone might want to update the wiki with that link.

I had a problem with the ethernet being so slow as to be unusable, but someone else tried it and said ethernet worked fine for them. Using a usb wifi dongle worked ok for me though, so I'm not sure.

Please add a warning for Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic builds that the WiFi/BT is not currently working in builds.

Libreelec is not a bionic build however.

Yeah boots and for me is what is interesting is its the first time I have actually seen a RockPro boot with an optimized Mali Driver running under OpenGL ES.

This is massively better CPU wise that I have seen before and its boot speed is phenomenal.

Hopefully someone will tell me other images have managed to get an image working without that horrible VM pipe LVM driver but for me this is a first.

Now its Kodi 18.0-Beta1 but wow this is looking good.
