First of all let me make it clear that im not an expert nor dev on anything linux or it related, more like an advanced user willing to learn if needed.
Ive been tinkering the last few days with the LE image at
and while i know its pre pre pre alpha im very happy with how much this LE build has grown, its working pretty well for the use i give it and its mostly stable, but i have to report 3 issues, not as a complain but as an end user tester willing to help improve the build and/or test new things suggested, in order of importance (IMO):
1 - randomly and specially when pausing or stopping a runing video the kodi interface dies and never come back, but the underlaying OS keeps runing as i can ssh to it and order a reboot or do other stuff normally, this is not a rare occurence, this happens about once of five times i pause or stop a video
2 - on 2 occassions i got kernel panics but i was unable to pinpoint the cause, on both occassions i was navigating the kodi interface, once setting an addon (that on a second try worked fine) and the second setting kodi to my taste
3 - i cant make my usb wifi card to work, its an archer t4uhp based on the rtl8812au chipset, some time ago i tested the same card on armbian on the same device and it was working perfectly so im completelly sure that the linux driver exists and its stable, i did some tinkering about this issue and i got some info:
a- if i do "modinfo 8812au" i get a lot of info so the driver is there but i dont see my specific device ID on the list (2357:010f as seen here)
b- when i do an "lsusb -t" i get an "Class=Vendor Specific Class" wich i think its generic for "i dont know what is this device")
c- "modprobe 8812au" does nothing but if i understand the process correctly its normal as the modinfo dont list the device so its not even trying to activate the device.
And this is where all my knowledge on device drivers ends
Im willing to try anything to test the build and help improve it, and let me insist that im not complainig at all, in fact im very VERY happy with the build and all the hard work you guys are doing here...
TLDR: i found issues with the rock64 LE pre alpha build:
1- kodi randomly dies when pausing or stopping a video (but not the OS)
2- super random kernel panics
3- need driver for the usb wifi card Archer t4uhp (chipset rtl8812au (device ID 2357:010f))
Thanks for reading and any help is totally wellcome
