Rock64Pro and 4K resolution
#1
I just got a Rock64Pro and I installed DietPi (running MATE as the UI) on it.  Boots up just fine, but the video is standard HD (1920x1080).  I went into Control Centre and 4K resolution isn't even listed in the Resolution drop down.  Anyone have any suggestions on how I can get/enable 4K resolution?  

The monitor is 4K, and Rock64 running DietPi operates in 4K mode.  I'm using the Rock64Pro version of DietPi.

Thanks,

Richard

Here's an update.  I was able to find an article online which provided me with the following commands to switch to 4K mode:

    xrandr --newmode "3840x2160" 338.75 3840 4080 4488 5136 2160 2163 2168 2200 -hsync +vsync
    xrandr --addmode HDMI-1 "3840x2160"
    xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode "3840x2160"

When executed in Terminal, the system will switch to 4K resolution.  And under Armbian Ubuntu, if I add those lines to ~/.profile, Ubuntu boots to 4K resolution.  When I tried adding those lines to ~/.profile under DietPi (with MATE as the UI), it doesn't work.  

I'm guessing that with DietPi/MATE, I need to add those lines to a different file.  Does anyone know which file I need to edit?

No clue which kernel they are using and how up-to-date their image is -- suggest asking in the DietPi forums.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
