MQMaker MiQi & ASUS Tinker Boards Get Linux 4.11 with 3D Graphics Acceleration

One day after the release of Linux 4.11, developer Miouyouyou” has released Linux 4.11 for Rockchip RK3288 platforms such as MQMaker MiQi and ASUS Tinker boards with some patchsets for ARM Mali r16p0 kernel drivers, ARM fbdev, and to improve performance.

The kernel has been tested with the Mali User-space r12p0 drivers for fbdev and wayland written for Firefly-RK3288, and some OpenGL ES 3.1/3.2 samples could successfully run on the board. 3D graphics acceleration does not work in X11 however.

Miouyouyou also plans to add support for Rockchip VPU code, as well as ARM gator, and document how to use ARM DS-5 Streamline for OpenGL ES 2.x/3.x debugging.

If you have a MiQi or Tinker board running Debian, you can try the kernel by adding beta.armbian.com Debian repository to your apt source file, and installing the following packages:

If that’s an issue with the framebuffer, I’ll see what I can do during the 4.12-rc period. I think this patch might resolve the issue : https://github.com/TinkerBoard/debian_kernel/commit/2dae2f4dd94c597231dddd717fda411664e6b4c4

If the issue also happen with wayland or X11, that’s another problem though.

Maybe better linking to the ‘call for testers’ with some instructions? https://forum.armbian.com/index.php?/topic/4806-the-vpu-driver/&do=findComment&comment=39062
