Nightly images for A64, H3 and H6 boards

  • Hello again,

    I managed to build new images for H3 boards with onboard Realtek WIFI driver (RTL8189FTV). It's not so hard to fix problems with new 5.2 kernel. Thanks for jernej for you help :) If someone need WIFI like me here are images for H3 boards.

    Images tested only for Orange Pi plus 2E. Other should work also but not tested.

    Built from LibreELEC Master Jul 19, 2019 - https://github.com/czosnekdev/libreelec.tv/tree/updateformmaster

    I tested your image for PC Plus on my Orange Pi Lite, the WIFI works. Thank you!

  • I hope official release :love:

    Not really. LibreELEC team won't support Realtek RTL8189FTV driver because it's source code is messy and need maintenance. I have a board with faulty lan connectivity and I'm doing it for myself.

    If you want to provide community builds with wifi enabled on regular basis, I suggest to create separate topic in this forum, otherwise your posts will get quickly lost in the sea of other posts.


    hostkit Unfortunately, this won't become official and I stated reasons why many times. If RTL8189FTV/ETV gets supported in mainline kernel then I'll certainly enable the driver. There is some hope for that to happen with rtw88. According to my information, this driver will gain SDIO support some time next year. After that it will still need some RTL8189F specifics to be added...

  • For those with HDMI audio issues - multiple people works on multiple drivers which are important for that feature. Please be patient as things are finally moving forward.

  • any idea if you will add support for pinetab or even pinephone?

    Honestly, currently I don't have any plans to do that, as I don't consider these devices to be popular choice for LibreELEC. But now that I think a bit, they could be considered as portable movie players.


    However, I don't have any of them, but if there is enough interest, something can be arranged. Maybe you can make another thread with poll to see how much interest there is?

    Please posted when it is done, then I don't have to test every new release and hope it works.

    Maybe I will do a poll on the pine64 forum, probably there is more people interested in the pinetab.

  • Orange pi lite have different power IC then Orange pi PC, and have a thermal issue. Would you add a temperature monitor on system/info?

    For that out of tree patches are needed. I'll add them once they merged into mainline Linux. Latest version of patch series looks promising.

    No ethernet connection


    Hi.

    Just installed the nightly version on a Pine64.

    The ethernet connection doesn't work at all.

    Any idea how to solve it?

  • Jerney,


    How can I use ffmpeg in OpenELEC build for OPI One Plus with HW h.264 decoding? I need to decode H.264 RTSP stream from camera and save JPEG image every 1 second.
