    Can you please tell me if Tronsmart Draco AW80 is supported (allwinner a80)?
    If yes, which version should I use?


    If you click on the link that DaVu has posted, you can easily see that the Tronsmart is not supported. AFAIK there are no community builds for Allwinner at all. I am sure that your device will never get support. It is just too old to be interesting for a developer.

    Are there any plans to support the SOC Realtek RTD1295? I find it a great choice.


    I wouldn't hold my breath for that. AFAIK nobody provided this Realtek device to any of der LE developers. What makes you think that it is a great choice? Can't see big advantages over an Amlogic S905 and it is more expensive.

    Okay, so someone has to write an adapter for libcec that is using this softcec. Should be not that complicated then.


    I have to correct myself. This driver is not usable for libcec, as it doesn't export a device. I can't see any interaction with userspace. So this driver would need some work too.


    Gerald

    The cec driver allows only one connection to the same time. You have Kodi running that blocks the driver.


    You could try this to use cec with Kodi running.

    edit2: no uninstall button on settings... can someone tell me how to manually uninstall? addon_data perhaps? i´ll check again after work! Thanks a lot for the help


    Just look this line I have quoted before:

    Quote


    #4 0x6f7b57d8 in Start () from /storage/.kodi/addons/visualization.wavforhue/visualization.wavforhue.so.1.0.0


    So remove the komplett folder /storage/.kodi/addons/visualization.wavforhue and the addon is history.


    Gerald


    The addon WavforHue kills kodi, whatever that might be.

    Where is in the firmware the pin for CEC defined?


    It is not that easy as you might think. There is no CEC pin that can be accessed by the "firmware". CEC pins typically ends at a dedicated CEC chip that is in or near the CPU. There are many different kinds of CEC chips. For everyone you need a kernel driver. The userspace communicates with this kernel driver via an adapter in the LibCEC. Without any knowledge of the used CEC chip it is impossible to write a kernel driver.


    The schematics you have linked, does only show that the CEC line goes to a level shifter, but the CEC output of this chip ends in the nowhere. So there is even no proof that CEC would work with this device.

    Okay, I understand now that you want to root the CEC pin to a GPIO pin. AFAIK there is no kernel driver available that is able to do CEC communication directly with the CEC line. The only peace of software I know of, that is doing this, is a firmware for an atmega microcontroller. Maybe someone wants to try to port this to a kernel driver, but this will be extremely difficult. In contrast to the Atom CPU running distributions like LE, the atmega gets not disturbed by interrupts from other hardware. So it will be very difficult to keep the timing constraints of the CEC bus, if e.g. a userspace writes something to the disk, or the user types on the keyboard. To reserve just on core of the Atom for CEC communication seems not to be a good idea ;)


    That is a task I surely will not do, but if somebody else steps in here and is doing a kernel driver, and someone provides me a free sample of this hardware, I will do the adapter for the libcec.

    As an apk is just something like a zip file, it would be possible to unpack it on LE. So an "installation" should be possible with some handwork. But what do you want to do with the so "installed" files? Most apks contain apps written in Java. LE has even no Java interpreter, let alone the missing android Java libraries.

    I have: ODroid-C2 + August DVB-T210 DVB-T2 stick (seems to be Geniatec 230?).
    I need: A working built with support for that hardware. Perferrable not an alpha built, but if it's necessary...


    Why do you post in this thread? The Odroid C2 has no S805, it has a S905 SOC and is official supported.

    Which of the following is the 'name of container'?


    the names of the containers are in the NAMES column in your output, but the ids will work too, as you have noticed.


    All other questions should go to the maintainer of this specific container.


    The main advantage of docker in LE is that the LE team has not to maintain anymore LE specific addons. :)

    I forgot to mention that your changes with apt-get inside the container will not survive a restart of the container. To have this changes persistent you have to build a new docker image by changing this dockerfile.


    Support for docker you will find here.
