Hi

Here is the kernel source code used.

yep, i know. but i guess firefly hasnt updated their 3.14 repo yet with latest commits, is it?

actually I have some more patches (about 25) in store to push for their 3.14 repo as i now have mali r12p0 running, with vpu support (both native linux and using machybris - all but hevc) and also rga support, all on 16.04. i ported most patches from the rockchip repos.

just great that rockchip is finally opening up.

That's great.
I think everyone can't wait to try some of your new work out.
Hope we don't have to wait too long

hi isle,

is this ubuntu 16.04 release based on kernel 3.14?
and if so, is your github kernel 3.14 repo now up to date or do you still need to push some commits?

if 3.14 repo is uptodate then i can push some more commits to add rga and vpu.

cheers -- mac-l1

In the Chinese Firefly forum they said the kernel used was that 3.14 one I posted above.
I think you should push your commits to it then they can merge it.

Oh , our mistakes, for ubuntu 16.04 use systemd instead of upstart. userspace firmware loading not support now. so we need to add brcmfmac firmware into kernel.
this bug is fixed

hi thanks, i'll compile a new kernel from your source to get wifi working again.
I've also noticed that i seem to get keyboard input lag and errors with typing, tried several keyboards as well and all present this issue.
another thing i noticed was that ubuntu seems to be having crashes causing error messages every now and then
