Update 22.02.2019 Feature-complete Debian build - SDIO WiFi/BT / PCIe / 3D / 2D

Chromium probably won't work because of the included gbm blob. The image is kind-of for a different application - but this will surely be sorted out in time. Also, for mate DE, make sure to enable window compositing.

My first problem: display resolution, forced output of 1920x1024, on workbench monitor (PL1910M), won't work. I have screen, but everything is (quite obviously) shunted to the left.

Tried to edit /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf ... but it's read-only. Any attempts to change file permissions fail. I can view it, that's all.

Attempted "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade", a few files updated, but that's it.

I grabbed this image because it reported "PCIe is enabled and attached storage works", but (a) lspci wasn't installed; (b) installing it, I'm getting zero output (as 1st page here shows).

WTH can I be doing wrong?

Thanks very much for this build! Smile I think I'm going to wait for your update before trying it, since I also have a PCIe RAID controller.

One question though: can we install a more recent kernel on your build? Or will that break all of the fixes that you implemented?

@kuerious - you aren't doing anything wrong, you just haven't mounted your boot partition as read/write. Use the "mount" command with the boot partition and "/boot -o remount,rw". Then you can edit extlinux and the default resolution. But be aware that the resolution of emulators will not be the same as the system default in extlinux, as different emulators are optimized for different resolutions. Also, in an upcoming updated release there will be additional PCIe drivers Smile

@p1x3l3d - a majority of the "fixes" in my build are kernel related, so swapping in another kernel would effectively undo them. But feel free to test anything you want by dropping in another "Image" or "dtb" and see what results you find Smile And thanks on the nickname props! Wink

@fosf0r - kernel source isn't available yet, but I'll be pushing it out to github at some point. Will keep you posted when that happens Smile

The next release will also have 4.4.171+ along with both the fan control and additional PCIe drivers

I just installed this and it booted straight to login prompt. I was able to log in but i was getting a wrong ip. I finally found a way to get a correct ip. At that point i did a update and installed mate desktop. once i rebooted i lost ip again and there was no DE environment. I am not sure not what i am doing wrong with getting a correct ip and getting a DE installed.

You need to install xorg. Then, startx

After installation with the command '' sudo apt install -y chromium ''
Chromium installs but does not start

Try launching chromium from the terminal, and see what it says. code: chromium-browser
That's how I debug my programs when they break.  Cool

Chromium and firefox do not start.

Below the entry from the terminal:

I might suggest replacing libmali.so on the build with this blob:
https://github.com/rockchip-linux/libmal...x11-gbm.so

I haven't test it yet, but *in theory* that blob should support both gbm and x11. Hopefully that would allow you to run XORG applications, such as web browsers.

If you want wayland instead of X then you could try this blob:
https://github.com/rockchip-linux/libmal...and-gbm.so

Again, I haven't tested either one, so please report back if you have success Smile

Just download the blob and save it as libmali.so and overwrite the current symlink with this. If it works out then I'll include it in the next release.
