Tinkerboard and Mali GPU

Post by davidsavill »

Hi All

I am curious if anyone has been able to get the GPU working on the tinkerboard, we need OpenCL for an AI project.

I have been trying these drivers https://github.com/rockchip-linux/rk-ro ... hf/libmali but get this in clinfo...
root@201810-ASUS-7HW:~# clinfo
file /dev/mali0 is not of a compatible version (user 10.6, kernel 10.4)
ERROR: The DDK is not compatible with any of the Mali GPUs on the system.
The DDK was built for 0x750 r0p0 status range [1..1], but none of the GPUs matched:
file /dev/mali0 is not of a compatible version (user 10.6, kernel 10.4)
Number of platforms 0

Is getting Mali enabled on this board possible in the current DietPi?

Sadly we (Fourdee) tried and failed on this: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/873

It's the official Asus TinkerOS that ships a very limited GPU driver, as far as I read the related topics.

Would be great if somehow could manage to get this run, especially since the issue is already known for more than a year.

Just did a bid research about this: https://tinkerboarding.co.uk/forum/thread-69.html

TinkerOS is listed there and DietPi a bit beneath with the correct note that GPU features are disabled. But since this is not noted on the official TinkerOS I am thinking if it might (now) work there and we break it with DietPi preparation script? Should be rechecked on official TinkerOS: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -431674329

Thanks MichaIng-

I havent tried TinkerOS but just for a test I tried it on Armbian today, seemed to be ok. I dont know if that helps give any clues to where the issue could be?
