Tips, Tricks and Guides / Armbian Video Kiosk with mpv on Cubietruck
« Last post by classdroogies on May 10, 2018, 09:32:35 am »

I wrote a tutorial for create basic video kiosk in few year ago and I decided to update this :),879.0.html

I use Armbian with a customized image Ubuntu xenial, with legacy kernel, without desktop packages for minimal fresh installation.

Note video acceleration work only with legacy kernel.

For mainline kernel the development is currently work in progress :

Read the Armbian documentation for build your image.

With this image it's very simple, you must have a few packages :

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core xinit xserver-xorg-video-fbdev xfonts-base libvdpau-sunxi1 nodm mpv

And a fewest configuration :

Add this parameters to /boot/armbianEnv.txt for enable memory reservations
Code: [Select]

Configure nodm with your user which should be automatically logged in, under /etc/default/nodm file :
Code: [Select]

Create ~/.xsession to launch mpv
Code: [Select]
#! /bin/bash
mpv --vo=vdpau --hwdec=vdpau --hwdec-codecs=all --loop=yes /home/cubie/video/*.mp4

And of course, you must have a video to read :
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/video
Code: [Select]
wget -O ~/video/big_buck_bunny.mp4

Now reboot and  8)
Beginners / Re: debian-server-cb2-card0-hdmi-v1.1.img Image File Invalid
« Last post by cymatikata on May 03, 2018, 09:26:06 am »
I just tried putting the Android Image back on with LiveSuit. LiveSuit is stating that the image is invalid.

So I guess I'll just return the piece of shit since support from Cubieboard doesn't seem to be a concern of theirs. I'll move onto the Asus Tinker Board.

Thanks for all the wonderful support. You're tops ;)
Beginners / debian-server-cb2-card0-hdmi-v1.1.img Image File Invalid
« Last post by cymatikata on May 02, 2018, 05:56:10 pm »
Just setup Ubuntu 14.01 on a Dell 3050. Installed LiveSuit and when I go to open up
debian-server-cb2-card0-hdmi-v1.1.img (yes it's been unzipped) I receive a message:

"Image file is Invalid"

Yes I have the unit in FEL mode (red light only).

I was able to burn cb-a20-lubuntu_server_13.01 but it wouldn't make it past the splash screen with the Penguin.
Beginners / Cubieboard S/PDIF port as INPUT?
« Last post by bcattle on April 29, 2018, 06:08:36 pm »
Hey all,
Is there any way to configure the cubieboard S/PDIF port (Toslink) as an input? Do any Cubieboard models support this?

Cubieboard v1 OS (A10 Based) / Armbian Bionic 18.04 LTS for Cubieboard 1
« Last post by slovenia on April 27, 2018, 07:02:12 am »
How does Armbian based on Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic looks like? The same as Xenial, Jessie or Stretch :) How does it function? As fast as possible. Can I build my own image? Yes, you can. Since board is officially EOL you need to use switch EXPERT="yes" when building an image.

More info and download links:
Same problem. Any solution?
Cubieboard v3 Hardware (Cubietruck) / Re: A10/A20 NAND boot block access
« Last post by tilator on April 20, 2018, 08:11:51 am »
So I'd say you've probably got the best setup at the moment.

Best is a bit strong word, but it definitely fulfills my needs right now.

In my present installation kernel version is 4.14.7-sunxi. Only U-Boot is on NAND. Kernel having initramfs and modules are all loaded from SATA. My goal was to get rid of SD-card and this does it.

However kernel version 4.9 did show NAND but the present 4.14.7-sunxi does not.
Thanks for the info.  What you've got now sounds like a new version of the setup I use which is U-Boot on NAND and everything else on SATA.  I went this way because they say NAND fails after many writes and so I figured the best thing to do is just keep static boot stuff there and get everything else from disk.

I haven't bothered updating from my old Wheezy system because it works well and supports NAND and the AP6210 (Wi-Fi).  The new Armbian kernel (4.18) supports the AP6210 but not NAND.  I can't get it to load with an old U-Boot.  But the Armbian release (stretch) will compile the new U-Boot which is good.

I've been away from all this for over a year and things certainly have changed.  People seem very critical of NAND and I guess it's not as good as was hoped.  So I'd say you've probably got the best setup at the moment.
