Odroid XU4 test new 4.9 kernel without new image?

Post by bgx »

Hello,

I'm new in the business. I've had dietpi running nice on my Odroid XU4. I want to try little bit with hardware transcoding and for that I must update to kernel ver 4.9

Is there a way to update to kernel ver 4.9 without start complete new image? And when, how do I archive that?

Thx and great piece of software...

Yep, you can update 3.x image with:

Thx, that worked. I tried to compile my own ffmpeg with the howto from here but I failed at the line: sudo apt-get build-dep ffmpeg

Code: Select all

root@DietPi:~/ffmpeg_sources/FFmpeg# sudo apt-get build-dep ffmpeg
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.

E: »Build-Depends«-Abhängigkeit für ffmpeg kann nicht erfüllt werden, da die Version des Installationskandidaten für das Paket debhelper die Versionsanforderungen nicht erfüllen kann.

There is a link on that page to download compiled versions of ffmpeg:

Ok, now is the time to try once again.

Kernel has patched and emby server in the last beta has also patched for odroid xu4 hw encoding. The only thing I need is the patched ffmpeg with hw encoder running.

I tried once again to install all the deb files but I failed greatly stuck at a broken apt-get with missed updates. Took me 4 hours to repair.

Somebody has tried to install the hw patched ffmpeg version on an xu4? Or can somebody lead me to a solution?

Heres the thread in odroid forum, somebody else tried it also and failed also on dietpi:

I don't want to start from scratch without dietpi. I think there must be a chance to install the patched ffmpeg...
