GT King Pro - Ubuntu 21.10  Impish Indri with Panfrost & 5.14.15 Kernel

I prepared a new Linux Firmware for Beelink GTKing Pro, GTKing and GTKing X users can use it too.
Finally I can say 3d Hardware Acceleration works properly with Panfrost drivers, thank you.

I changed kernel configuration it runs smoothly and I hope you like it too.
The bad news is Wifi-6 drivers stil does not work, I'm sorry for that.


Ubuntu 21.10  Impish Indri

Ubuntu 21.10, codenamed “Impish Indri”, is here. This release continues
Ubuntu's proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open
source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.
The team has been hard at work through this cycle, partnering with the
community and our partners, to introduce new features and fix bugs.

Ubuntu Desktop 21.10 makes wayland sessions available while using the
Nvidia proprietary driver. PulseAudio 15 introduces support for Bluetooth
LDAC and AptX codecs, as well as HFP Bluetooth profiles providing better
audio quality. The recovery key feature at installation time has been
improved, with the recovery key now optional, stronger and editable.
Ubuntu Desktop 21.10 includes GNOME version 40, with a new and
improved Activities Overview design. Workspaces are now arranged
horizontally, and the overview and app grid are accessed vertically.
Each direction has accompanying keyboard shortcuts, touchpad gestures
and mouse actions.

Note :  The file u-boot.ext was compiled by balbes150 from armbian project, thanks to him.

System Properties:

Firmware Type : USB
Architecture: aarch64
Kernel : Linux 5.14.15-darkstar
Desktop Environment : Gnome
GPU Hardware Acceleration : YES Finally (Panfrost)
User/Password : root/beelink , beelink/beelink

Setup Instructions :

1- Download firmware image from link below.
2- Flash image with balenaEtcher to an appropriate USB drive ( faster drives perform better )
3- Firmware will not resize your USB on first boot, I added gparted into the firmware please use it for resizing ROOTFS partition.
4- Default password for both users "root" and "beelink" are beelink don't forget to change it.
5- After first boot please run the following commands from console as root user, this will update your system.

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y

6- Default Desktop Environment is Gnome, you can install KDE/Mate/XFCE/Cinnamon easily with command "tasksel" run as root.

tasksel

7-If tasksel command is not found you can install it with the command below, please run it as root.

apt-get install tasksel


8-Choose your preferred Desktop from the list to install and it will take some time to download and install.

Hi darkstar I have come up with bootscripts and upstream kernel to be used to boot over bsp uboot and avoid use of second stage bootloader chainloading.  

With this we should have a stable system and can boot from sd, usb and also flash it on emmc using the install-to-emmc script.

I will share the source once i test it on. Gt king pro and gt 1 ultimate.

I have already tested it on vim2 and ugoos am6 plus.  
Beelink GT1 Ultimate (S912) - Manjaro ARM Linux
Beelink GT King Pro (S922X-H) - Manjaro ARM Linux
Beelink GS King X (S922X-H) - Manjaro ARM Linux

This weekend I played with my box and once again I remembered why Debian is one of the best distributions on the planet.
Ubuntu 21.10 Stable version gives 970 - 1000 glmark2-es2-wayland scores with Mesa 22.0
Where Debian 11 with testing branch gives us 1244 glmark2-es2-wayland score with Mesa 21.2.4

Kernel build is the easiest part for me.
I will share new builds of kernel packages or firmware itself when I get significant improvements.
I prefer to share stable and smooth software builds.

Hi @darkstar,

GT King Pro - Ubuntu 21.10  Impish Indri with Panfrost & 5.14.15 Kernel

I prepared a new Linux Firmware for Beelink GTKing Pro, GTKing and GTKing X users can use it too.
Finally I can say 3d Hardware Acceleration works properly with Panfrost drivers, thank you.

I changed kernel configuration it runs smoothly and I hope you like it too.

Thanks.  Burned image on USB Flash, First Boot Up successfully.  Resized Partition with GParted.

Great.

Edit: Just a quick feedback.  "sudo apt upgrade" does NOT upgrade "mesa-opencl-icd/impish,impish 21.2.2-1ubuntu1 arm64 [upgradable from: 21.0.100-0ubuntu0.20.04.1]"
  1. <div>
  2. </div><div>1 package can be upgraded. Run 'apt list --upgradable' to see it.

  14. Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.
  15. <b>The following packages have been kept back:

  20. mesa-opencl-icd/impish,impish 21.2.2-1ubuntu1 arm64 [upgradable from: 21.0.100-0ubuntu0.20.04.1]
  21. mesa-opencl-icd/now 21.0.100-0ubuntu0.20.04.1 arm64 [installed,upgradable to: 21.2.2-1ubuntu1]

  22. beelink@Beelink:</div>
Copy the Code

Per my understanding mesa-opencl-icd should be same version as the other mesa drivers 21.2.2-1-unbuntu1.  Any suggestion how to resolve this?

Edit:
Just wonder whether "beelink@Beelink:~$ sudo apt install mesa-opencl-icd=21.2.2-1ubuntu1" will do the trick?  But this instruction wants to remove 3 packages so did not proceed. Better seek some advise how to proceed.

Thanks.  Oops, I did the opposite.  Just uninstall "mesa-opencl-icd".  Is "mesa-opencl-icd" required?

This package contains the mesa implementation of the OpenCL (Open Compute Language) library, which is intended for use with an ICD loader. OpenCL provides a standardized interface for computational analysis on graphical processing units.

Thanks for the info.

Edit:  This Ubuntu-Impish-5.14.15-darkstar is stable.. So far 10 out of 10 successful Boot Up and operates smoothly. Great work.  Both Wayland and Xorg Session works.  In general Wayland session works better in the sense that the mouse pointer does not flicker as it does happen in Xorg session.


Hope you will continue to release kernel upgrades to for this Ubuntu-Impish image.  Thank you.
