For me indeed the H9 stucture is better. It just moved all stuff to the USB or SD... Then the rest of the code doesn;t care and is backwards compatible. But as far I can see the internal 'flash' is not really used anymore.

SF8008 still uses internal flash and two images on SD. It can be coded, but we can also ask if they are willing to go for the H9 method.... But as 'other' images already adapt that another structure there might be no way back. But with a try to ask them I mihgt save time soon ;)

 

As far I can see the ViX plugin for H9 (and maybe also the other HiSilicon boxes) could also be added in OpenPLi. As far I can see that plugin does work right away as for the existing code it is transparant (please tell me when I make a big mistake)

 

Just a question.. why are you doing this

                               f = open('/proc/cmdline', 'r').read()
                               if "root=/dev/mmcblk0p1" in f:

In this case I think this is a bit better

                               if "root=/dev/mmcblk0p1" in open('/proc/cmdline', 'r').read():

Your code keeps the 'file' longer open as f exists longer... I see it a lot in openvix/atv that the open the file in a variable do something and then a seperate close... event when the manipulation is short..? 

You have to remember that you know Python like the back of your hand - I'm still trying to learn this language!!

 

The "little" issue with the H9 is to get the changed bootargs into /usr/share so they can be copied - OpenPli hate messing with the meta, so you (or Betacentauri) might want to look at this earlier OpenVix change (since then its been fully incorporated into the meta for zgemma) ....https://github.com/o...5adc9d526a74508

 

I just changed my SF8008 sdcard to use 32MB kernel partitions and it will not boot - so perhaps not implement at the moment!

I prefer we should try to consult Octagon and try to consider them to swap their multiboot system to what e.g. ZGemme does... then we could do it with one and the same system instead of adding a new method... That would be a real break through.

That would be real nice - I wish you much luck!

I agree... but in between they already solved some driver related different behavior gaps so we do not need of this box do some tricky work a round patch in e2... so I have somehow good hope!

I know the image is in development but I would appreciate that this openpli image supports the Blurayplayer app, other images like Openeight 6.7 and openatv6.3 / 4 work without problems, besides the tv box it is also an excellent multimedia box, read any type of Bluray file with the extension # enigma2-plugin-extensions-blurayplayer_1 + git142 "please don't forget order, thank you very much

Perfect then, just missing the image for our sf8008 octagons, a continuation of an excellent job

That is being worked on, driver bugs are being adressed by Octagon, so we're making progress...

We noticed some issues which might need to be solved by us or the manufacturer. Not sure who must fix this. 

So we’ll do our best to put an image public ASAP but as we say in Dutch ‘can’t break iron with my bare hands’. ;)


Mijn schotel is een T90 met 10 LNB's. Daarnaast voor de fun nog een draaibaar systeem met een Triax TD 78.

Dreamboxen heb ik niet meer. Verder nog een een VU+ duo2 met 500Gb harddisk + een VU+ Uno, Zero, Solo 4K, Ultimo 4K, Zero 4K, Uno 4Kse. + ook nog een Xtrend ET4000. Daarnaast heb ik ook nog diverse andere modellen w.o. een Formuler F4, ET8500, ET7500, Mut@nt 2400HD, Xsarius Fusion HD se en verder nog wel het e.e.a. waarmee op verzoek vanalles wordt getest. Iemand moet het tenslotte doen. ;) :)

Voor centrale opslag van media gebruik ik een Qnap 219P met tweemaal 2 Tb harddisks.

Als ik alles al wist hoefde ik ook niets te vragen. If I had all the knowledge I had no questions at all.

We tried to avoid work a rounds in e2 around drivers, different procs etc.... this manufacturer respond very positive, but it may take some time :)

We're busy preparing a 7.3-release, the sf8008 will be part of that.

 

The plan for the moment is to release an rc soon, aim for a stable release before mid March.
