Re: Allo Sparky GPU

In the old post, I'm not sure I had a display connected when I ran xrandr. For full disclosure, I primarily run the sparky headless. It boots to the desktop and I remote in. I did try plugging it in to an HDMI display with a resolution of 1920x1080 and clearly the sparky was outputting a lower resol...

no /etc/X11/xorg.conf

I've messed with lxrandr before to no success. I posted about it awhile ago.

Re: Allo Sparky GPU

I appreciate you looking into it. Sounds like it's not going to happen and that's ok. I have no real need for additional GPU support. More of a curiosity.

Re: Allo Sparky GPU

MichaIng Thanks for the reply. I do have a desktop (lxde, I believe) running. The resolution is weird, it doesn't seem to conform to the resolution of the monitor it's attached to, nor is it changeable. The Sparky doesn't seem to be a particularly popular option so I'm not surprised their kernel/fir...

Allo Sparky GPU

HI All

The download page for the Allo Sparky indicates that GPU features are not currently available. What all would be involved in making them available? Is this something a user can do? Is this something that can be done by the team following a paypal donation?

Thank you
Matt

When I ssh into the sparky (on which thread priorities are not working) in the upper left corner of putty the connection is listed as root@sparky (sparky bein...

Disable HDMI Audio on Sparky

Hi I would like to disable the HDMI audio on my Sparky but I'm not quite sure how. From dietpi-config I do not have the soundcard "none" option that my Pis have. I've seen tutorials which describe creating an alsa-blacklist.conf file. These tutorials are for Pis and describe adding blackli...
