I am trying to chose an OS for the Orange Pi 5 I have here, and DietPi seems like an obvious choice for me.
However, it seems that the Armbian guys have a kernel patched for the “PAN_MESA_DEBUG=gofaster” to work for a better Panfork performance:
These are the patches needed:
Are these patches incorporated into the DietPi kernel as they are in the Armbian kernel?
Right, that is probably the most important part shipped by the PPA. Not sure what this mali-g610-firmware does when using the Rockchip kernel sources already (which is what Armbian does with the “legacy” RK3588 kernel package).
I am trying to get hardware acceleration working on orange pi 5, and can not seem to get it.
First, I tried to install panfork using the above procedure from the armbian forums, but it didn’t work. It complained that it couldn’t find the ip address from the repository (or something similar). Second, I tried downloading the binary files, installed them, but still nothing.
My simple check is to look under chrome://gpu and look for green under hardware acceleration.
I don’t use wayland. I am using a desktop environment that relies on xorg. Maybe that has something to do with it.
Can someone share a compile (or installation) method that enables hardware acceleration on orange pi 5?
