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:
