Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?
(2012-06-14, 22:25)Ribuck Wrote: Shame there isn't a video of the mk802 actually running 12.04 to prove it's real, as all we can can see if a pic of a screen show 12.04 which could be running on anything.

That said would be nice to see as 12.04 is supposed to have better optimisation for Arm

Yes, it´s real, The system images are already available.

The boards can run android 4.0 ICS and ubuntu extremely well and hopefully, xmbc in the future aswell. To find out more please visit: gooseberry.atspace.co.uk and register your interest!

We will be selling the boards at £40 which includes a charger to power the board. The first few boards are expected to arrive in the next few weeks.

Awesome. Feel free to add a section and links to the page on our wiki: Allwinner A10 (wiki)

Not a bad idea, and this thread is getting pretty big. Hmmmm.

Awesome. I recently ordered a PineRiver Mini X, but have yet to hear anyone attempting anything with that specific unit. I'm hoping it either just works like the other A10 set top boxes, or isn't far behind. Worst comes to worse, just having android on it isn't too bad.

OK, for what ive managed to look at it using that Ubuntu image... even wifi was working (not not dns handling somehow).

Performance was good, still lacks Mali-400 hardware acceleration in desktop, and video hardware decoder is not working either.

here is a hardware/benchmark report:

Don't worry. You will be fine.

When I have time later this evening, I will see if I can point the guys to the evb.bin hardware initialisation files information and how to extract the proper one for the MK802 from android, so they can fix there memory issue.

I know Tom Cubie has the first X11 hardware drivers running and compiled, but there are still some issues. With some time you will get Hardware GLES support as well.

We're getting closer folks, 12.04 is a great step in the right direction, and even better is the fact that people have managed to boot 12.04 on tablets is making it a really exciting time ahead.

Question, I understand the RPi and All Winner devices are based on different versions of the Arm chip. However how much of the efforts of Davilla and Gimli of getting xbmc to run smoothly on the RPi will benefit the porting effort to the AllWinner chip?
Cheers

How about this tablet ?
http://www.mcbub.com/item/7-Inch-AllWinn...9--147995/

Would this also work for Ubuntu 12 ? XBMC eventually ?
The normal XBMC log IS NOT a debug log, to enable debug logging you must toggle it on under XBMC Settings - System or in advancedsettings.xml. Use XBMC Debug Log Addon to retrieve it.
