Re: Accelerated X driver testing

Thanks again. Basically the two things which have had the least amount of testing are the VpuOffload option (about a month's worth) and the SelfManagedOffscreen (about two weeks worth). With those options turned off you lose a lot of performance but is by far the most tested configuration (many man...

Re: Accelerated X driver testing

Cool thanks very much for the detail. I think I've uncovered a trouble with a VPU function, I'll see what's going on. If you can also see a trouble with VpuComposite off, can you also set SelfManagedOffscreen to false? (and just in case I'd not mentioned - any change in that config file requires Xo...

Re: SD Card Corruption

Malakai is correct, you should be able to use a camera to reformat. If not, you can get a low level format utility, I use a windows one, which will do a full low level format on the sd card, it takes a while, but does get the SD back to fresh state. Writing a image file will completely overwrite the...

PS, just checked string length and it is only 242 characers, so I don't think that is the problem, I'll try the new firmaware anyway. The firmware adds extra options to /boot/cmdline.txt. Once booted look at /proc/cmdline for the full command line. Hi Dom, OK working now thanks. The only problem so...

Re: Updated GPU firmware

Ah yes, some of the config group names have changed in newer kernel, and so large sections of modules we're disabled. I've added back in various groups and we now have uvcvideo.ko amongst others. Can you try again: sudo rpi-update ffe1ad3ccba34e55672a2d8813ddf0a1c81a4230 Hi, I'm having problems wit...

Yes I do have the very latest firmware.
