You could download our builds from https://openvision.tech/stb-images/
- How to use sdcard images (E.g. raspberrypi):
You could use https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/ or similar tools to write the image on a sdcard.
Please use our forum at https://forum.openvision.tech or our issue page at https://github.com/OpenVisionE2/openvision-oe/issues
- Are you allowed to compile development versions? Yes!
- Are you allowed to distribute development versions? No!
- Are you allowed to make our images compatible with clones? Yes!
- Are you allowed to distribute cloned images? Yes but only with "clone-version" tag and no development versions.
- Do we support clones? No!
- Are you allowed to make backup of our images? Yes!
- Are you allowed to distribute backup images? Yes but only with "backup-version" tag and no development versions.
- Do we provide support for self-building? No! We prefer to work on our projects.
- Do we need more Vision Developers? Absolutely yes! Contribute to our git and we contact you!
- Do we need more Vision Testers? Absolutely yes! Test our images and report bugs, help us grow you'll see the title flows.
- Do we support our image in multiboot situations? No! Check about screen and if our module is not loaded then you're on your own!
If you see your model in https://github.com/OpenVisionE2/openvision-oe/blob/develop/README.md it means there will be Open Vision for it otherwise read https://forum.openvision.tech/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=30 and don't spam the board!
You could compile Open Vision for so many brands/models:
Ubuntu 18.04.x LTS setup
- Run our ltsubuntu.sh
How to get latest Ubuntu 18.04.x updates
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04
How to use Xfce 4 desktop on Ubuntu
(as GNOME 3 wastes so many resources)
1- Disable wayland:
sudo gedit /etc/gdm3/custom.conf
(Change "#WaylandEnable=false" to "WaylandEnable=false")
2- Install Xfce 4:
sudo apt-get install xfce4
How to build an Open Vision image
- Clone openpli-oe-core somewhere:
git clone -b develop --depth 1 https://github.com/OpenPLi/openpli-oe-core.git
- Enter the openpli-oe-core directory:
- Clone openvision-oe:
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/OpenVisionE2/openvision-oe.git
- Run our image.sh script:
cd openvision-oe ./image.sh
If you want to compile an image for only 1 machine just choose "Specific".
Hints for multiple architectures
- Removing the "build" directory solves most of the errors. For a fast remove use "rm -rf build". (If you just want to reduce the build size use "cleanup.sh".)
- If you want to compile images for old machines like dm800/cube/su980, first build for them.
- If you want to compile images for x64 machines like alienx/kxpx series, first build for them.
- If you want to compile images for 4K machines with ARM architecture and you get error each time, try compile for a Mipsel machine like dm7020hd first then compile your ARM images.
