Re: Open Source VPU driver for Allwinner

We got a 640*480 LCD and we made it work on RetroStone2, it's working both on legacy and mainline now!

We still have some bugs to fix, we can't get emulation on HDMI when doing simultaneous output on LCD+HDMI.
Also few more things to debug before RetroStone2 releases!

Re: Some observations from a UNIX sysadmin

Hi! Sorry I missed your message! About HDMI switch I tried for a long time to find a way to make automatic switch between LCD and HDMI rather than using the bashfile but with no luck.

Re: (French) Problème hdmi HC + configuration manette

Bonjour, - pour ce qui est du home cinéma je ne sais pas ce qu'il se passe, effectivement il se peut que ca soit un problème de compatibilité, en général il faut connecter directement à l'écran. - Pour la manette as tu essayé de la configurer en appuyant sur start (avec le start de la retrostone), c...

Re: Other distros

That need some digging depending on the kernel you'r using. If it's legacy kernel I think you can use the script.bin file of retrorangepi image for retrostone directly. if it's mainline kernel it needs more digging. I am no expert of linux so I won't be much help :/ Check on armbian forum. Here's on...

Re: D-Pad fix please!!

Thanks for your tests and feedback.
So overall the idea would be to increase the global thickness of the dpad plastic by 1mm right?
I need to check with suppliers if this can be done easily.

Re: Problem charging (maybe?)

It should be 6 hours.

With few chargers the charge speed is slower for an unknown reason. Someone reported that his 5V 2.5A charger was giving only 0.3A isntead of 0.7A it usually use when charging. So if you need somethin like 10-15 hours for full charge, I suggest trying another charger.

Re: Other distros

Currently for retrorangepi we use legacy kernel. The LCD settings are setup in the script.bin that you can read/modify with bin2fex tool then recompile it with fex2bin. If your image use mainline kernel then it's different as mainline does not use script.bin but use device tree thing that I don't kn...
