    Good tip! But this kernel lacks lot of kernel modules... Like cifs or ntfs support... So I don't think it could be useful in a general purpose OS...

    Following the instructions in the thread about the load fix, I've just built a kernel with the cifs, fuse and ntfs modules. BTW why armel and not armhf? I'm trying to have xbmc running on the Udoo, but it seems debian is not packaging it for armel, only armhf.

    As I understand it the toolchain itself is built armel. Therefore when trying to do armhf stuff you run into issues.

    If you compile your own stuff (completely, inc the whole toolchain) then it's nothing insurmountable I'm sure.

    This is a theory of mine - yet to be proven.

    I've just boot on a armhf debian and it seems to work. I've used mikelangeloz debian armel image to debootstrap a new armhf rootfs. xbmc is now installing. No issues (yet).

    Madko, the minimal image is armhf... I think it would be good to install XBMC on it, and focus the efforts on enabling the vivante modules... Did anyone got them running on armhf?

    I'm having issues logging into Debian on my quad. The login username is udoo and the password 'debian' for Defualt Xsession doesn't work.

    Any tips?

    Yeah, I figured that was the issue, but I couldn't figure out how to change the username. Granted I only tried for 10 mins or so.

    Create a new user is simple. man adduser. You can do what you want it's a real debian.


    To remain on the topic, how do we check the GPU acceleration is working?

    run GLMark2 which is a proper benchmark.

    Does "Debian Wheezy ArmHF" contains modules for NTFS (ntfs-3g), exFAT and CIFS?
    Would be great^^

    I hope their is another way? glxinfo shows that 3D is software rasterized (not good I guess), and glxgears only shows 70FPS. Therefor xbmc is awfully slow and useless...

    i've tried the armel-version today (the one that should have GPU-acceleration working).
    However - running glxinfo shows "software rasterized" - and glxgears has only 46fps (on a quad). (class10 sd card)
    (however, i didn't apply the load-patch yet).

    the only thing i did after putting the image to the sd-card was download and install the package "mesa-utils" - in order to have glxinfo and glxgears - but it appears like no hw-acceleration is there.
    anyone has a solution to that?

    This is built into the v1.3 image that was released a couple days ago.
