Beginners / Re: Which Linux for Cubietruck (Cubieboard 3)?

btw,  no mali drivers either for the most part.

gtk2 is ok, but gtk3 is a dog.

Fedra28 hdmi was decent.  Fedora29 is painful.

Cubietech needs to lend a hand in opening mali.

what you are up against is the sunxi uboot work has not provided vga support.  none of the distros that use it can drive vga as a result.  and there is no plan to add it.

look for an hdmi-to-vga converter.

I have not been sucessful with these an Fedora/centos.

Beginners / Which Linux for Cubietruck (Cubieboard 3)?
« Last post by moon on November 04, 2018, 11:28:45 am »
I have Cubietruck with VGA monitor (not HDMI) and don't know which Linux to install that will have the Mali GPU working.  I tried a few and they didn't boot or didn't have the mali driver.
OpenSUSE: didn't boot, hangs when starting the kernel
Armbian Bionic: boots but doesn't have mali driver, just software framebuffer
Devuan Ascii: boots but VGA monitor shuts off! (can only use it over serial cable or ssh)
Devuan Jessie: boots after I replaced the supplied u-boot with newer one :) but only has software framebuffer (/dev/fb0, not /dev/dri/card0)
Any ideas what else to try?
