Hi,

this is a good news... one question: was it tested with Kodi? Should we expect to have it working out of the box?

And another question: are you planning to release also the Lubuntu image without dual boot?

Thanks,
zeno

Hi zeno:
the kodi can't work smoothly with this version.the GPU havn't worked on it's  full-pow,and also with the VPU . so,we have much more work to do .
We have a plan to fix these problems. however,We're actually a bit short-handed at the moment. The good news is we will build a alliance with some  people who are good at it.
so,if everything goes well . It shouldn't take a very long time to get these problems solved.

yes,the Lubuntu alone image will release very soon.

Hello Isle,

Thanks for your hard work !

I'd like to ask you some questions :

In this image, the node /dev/dri/card0 exists whereas in the previous ones, it didn't.
What driver is responsible for exporting this node ?

You used armsoc for the X11 graphic driver which is, I believe, an open source driver. Wouldn't the closed source X11 driver from ARM itself work better ?

Also, my screen (hdmi) regularly blacks out, for 1-2 seconds.
