  • Homeseer 3 new ARM64 based Ubuntu 18.04 build for Rockchip CPUs

    Here have updated the "old" Pine64 with a new Armbian Arm64 written OS. Works great and boots from a single EXT4 partition which is much nicer than the dual fat16/int4 booting.

    The Ubuntu folks have updated the repositories to include ARM 64 OS's. The ARMBian folks have updated their Ubuntu repositories to include the Rock chip.

    The above said it is recommended to those using Rockchip based computers to update to Ubuntu 18.04 using these new repositories and images.

    I did the image write using Windows 7 and Win32 disk imager. I also cloned the image writing a read image from completed SD card to an image file then replicated the image over to a new SD card for back up purposes.

    This all leading to making a new HS3 Lite computer using an Octocore ARM CPU with 4 Gb of DDR3 RAM and using an eMMC for base OS. Pocket rocket same size as an RPi3.

    Concurrently switching over from my Intel Aopen Kodi box running Ubuntu 18.04 to a new Octocore ARM CPU TV box running Linux (no Android running here for anything these days). Much lighter and much fast GPU processing (4K at 60 fps).

    Which Octa Core cpu is this specifically for?

    I didn't find a "Pocket Rocket"

        Isn’t an hexacore? but that not important.


        would you mind sharing some stats of it running
        ?

        Do you think it would have somewhat a limit in hs3 processing? (Let’s put all the chances on our side with a nvme ssd) ( if your running it on emmc , that’s fine too)



        I was curious about this .
        Thanks
        Matth

        edit: sorry I thought you were talking about the very new rock pi 4 here http://rockpi.org/

          Testing first on the Pine64 computer running with a 1.2 Ghz Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit Processor in 64 bit mode off a new fast micro SD card.

          I had no issues installing mono on the arm64 OS. IE: they now make a aarch64 / arm64 version of mono.

          Yes transitioning over to the smaller Rock Pi 4 with more bells and whistles (IE: option to use .m2 SATA and RTC clock battery in a smaller package).

          Yes arm64 is arm64 is arm64 whether it is running on an arm quad core or octocore cpu.

          It is not working hard at all using a 2.5AMP 5VDC power supply via the Euler pins.
