How to install distri on EMMC - "VIM_Ubuntu-mate-16.04_Linux-4.9_SD-USB_V180207"?

I suppose this will not be compatible with VIM2? Or would it?

Hi riaana,

Yes, itโ€™s just for VIM.


Armbian + KODI (Ubuntu\Debian) for SD & USB & eMMC

Wicked! Thank you so much. Question: does it means that playing a .mp4 in ffplay / mplayer / vlc = hardware decoding instead of cpu?


#5

Just KODI with hardware acceleration.

Hello numbqq, Thanks for adding the MIDI support.
I am not fluent in Linux MIDI, but have successfully installed Rosegarden(MIDI Sequencer) and Jack. A MIDI file loaded into Rosegarden plays thru a generic USB-to-MIDI adapter, to a Casio keyboard.
I have much to learn, but should be fun.

Thanks again, RDFTKV.:grinning:


#7

Not sure why video hardware decoding only works with kodi and not with mplayer, vlc, ffplay (ffmpeg) etc?


#8

Is this rom using an older version of Linux kernel (3.14) or is that a typo?

Hi rosenblat,

Itโ€™s 3.14, not a typo.
