Donation of ARM CubieTruck to anyone interested in developing ARM-Debian-desktop
My name is Alexey, and I'm interested in having ARM CubieTruck
hardware well supported by Debian for desktop (KDE) use.
CubieTruck is an ARM mini-PC aka "Liliputer", based on AllWinner A20
SoC + 2 GB RAM + 8 GB flash + VGA (!) port + SATA + Ethernet + WiFi,
making it good enough for a real Debian desktop.
My goal: It should have a working 2D, HD Video and 3D graphics as well
as audio and networking. (for my purposes even closed-source drivers
Some open-source drivers exist:
*2D - xf86-video-fbturbo - link: https://github.com/ssvb/xf86-video-fbturbo
*Hardware Video Decoder - "CedarX" link:
http://linux-sunxi.org/Reverse_Engineering/Cedar_Status (should play
H.264 and WebM/VP8 Full HD 1080p video)
*3D - open-source Lima or closed-source Mali drivers.
WiFi + Bluetooth - status unknown. (WiFi firmware is probably closed source)
If you can - please help stabilize those experimental drivers, improve
them, test and integrate them into upcoming Debian 8.0.
I will donate few ARM CubieTruck samples to interested people. You'll
need a proof of past patches to any open-source project or community
