Help wanted for setting MALI hardware acceleration up with bionic / stretch ARM64 (Kodi)


#1

I would like to know how to setup hardware video acceleration properly for bionic and stretch ARM64. MALI drivers are installed BUT when launching Kodi through a systemd service using dbus-launch (X11 minimal installation), my SBC is reaching 140°F and around 75% of CPU load just when it enters the APP… if i play a video, it is worse and playback is stuttering even with SD content ! I have installed armsoc package too…

I think that this situation is caused by an improper setup on my system, i do not know how to enable hardware MALI acceleration properly !

Anyway it is working almost fine OOTB with stretch ARMHF :+1:

You will find my xorg log file below and thanks for any help !

EDIT : searching over google for EGL_MESA_drm_image required for T860 did not provide useful info… it’s the same for querying about modeset, armsoc drivers for T860 :cry:

Hi,

If you want to use Kodi, i suggest you try LibrELEC. You can download it from:
https://libreelec.tv/downloads_new/rockchip/

I managed to get KODI GBM working with almost all features included in latest LibreELEC (Pulse Eight HDMI CEC, HDMI audio passthrough, etc…). It is installed on bionic arm64 with mate desktop, so whenever i want to get into an X11 session when i am into KODI, i only have to shut KODI off and log into mate without rebooting … :+1:

Thanks for replying anyway !

Regards

Maybe you can share your image :slight_smile:

You can use rkdeveloptool rl command to read the image via USB to PC.


#5

Yes, i am up to do so…

By image, you are meaning OS image right ? I assume that a clean system should be on it before sharing isn’t it ?

EDIT : i’ve just posted download link to my ROCK960C image in my KODI GBM thread…
