OS images to download

Thanks Mikerr for your updated Tinker OS based image (18.04). My uSD card had failed so I made the mistake of using the ASUS 18.04 image as a basis for my desktop tinkerboard, which proved to be a disaster IMO. 

Yours worked well except for the sound over HDMI. Interestingly, sound worked OK with KODI and VLC once I found their respective audio settings and changed the respective audio devices to rockchip. However the frame rate makes VLC too jerky to use IMO.

I could not find out how to change the audio device for SMPlayer which, otherwise, works well. From another thread, the answer is in
sudo tinker-config
Quote:Interfacing Options, audio, force HDMI
in case that is helpful to anyone here.

I now have a fully functioning desktop computer back again.

Not installed by default yet. Read text at the download page how to enable.
Armbian. Lightweight Debian Stretch or Ubuntu Bionic for Tinker Board.

How is tinker os on buster??
There's no official Buster image yet, but you can edit the apt-sources and upgrade that way:

Tinker OS buster:
Added Slash TV android OS into list of images

Slash TV android!v0A2wIjQ!srUj1dVjj3uxq6-yfly02w

This is set up to have more of an android TV feel to it, Sega Saturn is working, Dreamcast, psp, all the earlier emulators, Netflix, Kodi, Plex, and more

Tried that thanks, but I cannot play .ts video files using SMPlayer/MPV nor KODI, using this.

I've reverted to 20190515-tinker-board-linaro-stretch-apl-v2.0.110.img with no updates, as this works. It was installing updates, on a previous install, that resulted in an inability to play .ts video files. (That's what I get from TVHeadEnd)

Interestingly, I am having an almost identical problem with an Odroid XU4 board. 16.04-mate works (no updates) but 18.04-mate doesn't.

I'm assuming that there is some general problem with rockchip/Mali drivers or the newer kernels on ARM devices, noting that I don't get this problem with RPis. I'm just a user so have little programming knowledge.
Just a note on updates:

you should be doing apt-get update / upgrade but NOT dist-upgrade as that will break things.

Thanks but I get the following error, when writing just sudo apt-get update (Just one of about 4 errors, shown here):
Quote:N: Repository ' buster/updates InRelease' changed its 'Version' value from '' to '10'
E: Repository ' buster/updates InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'testing' to 'stable'
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.
man apt-secure Is of little help to me and my sources list doesn't seem to contain any hint of a value that should be changed from 'testing' to 'stable' or from 'testing' to 'stable'.
Is there a simple way to do this or should I just be leaving 'Buster' alone for the time being, until such wrinkles are ironed out?
