Cubiuntu 0.6 for A20 with 3.4.75+ kernel
« on: December 30, 2013, 09:17:00 pm »
I have uploaded a new CUBIUNTU for the A20 with the latest 3.4.75+ kernel.  HW video decode is working, and libhybris is integrated: http://linux-sunxi.org/CedarX/libve.  This solves issues with weighted P-frame prediction in files like the Sintel movie trailer described here: http://linux-sunxi.org/CedarXVideoRenderingChart.

As before passwords are root/root linaro/linaro.

No, xbmc isn't in this version.


EDIT: This version is obsolete and unsupported (and removed).  See http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php?topic=568.0 for a newer distro.

a) Is wifi and eth0 working on this one ?
b) What Git repo URL did you use ?
c) What branch on the Git repo did you use ?
d) Is the kernel Kconfig enabled ?

A. Yes.  But wifi can take up to a minute or so to connect.  Not quite sure why yet.
B. https://github.com/patrickhwood/linux-sunxi
C. pat-3.4.75
D. Not exactly what you mean by this.  If you mean /proc/config.gz via CONFIG_IKCONFIG_PROC, yes.  The config used to build this kernel is also in the file config.3.4.75-sun4i+ in the boot partition.

Hi Pat!

Pls. would you make a separate kernel/module package with your .75 kernel. I hope, I can use it with the cubieez img as the previous ones (.67 .61 .43)

Thanx.

Okay, it's here: http://dl.cubieforums.com/patwood/A20-kernel-3.4.75.tar.gz and the A10 kernel is here: http://dl.cubieforums.com/patwood/A10-kernel-3.4.75.tar.gz.

what is the cubiubuntu that comes with this kelnel the cubiubuntu 0.6.5b-a20.img.xz?
in your repository just found the kernel and not the distro. I misunderstood the wording of your post?

That file is the a20 version of CUBIUNTU 0.6.  Currently the a20 version of CUBIUNTU 0.8 doesn't have a working Mali driver, so I haven't uploaded it.

The 3.4.75+ a20 kernel is also in the ftp downloads.
