Hello ARM Pinebook Pro Users,

These patches add the panfrost graphics acceleration for the Pinebook Pro laptop.

These patches must be applied on top of

d4c6e06f369024efc63e11de1a5bacd3fe9f7e8d (wip-pinebook-pro branch)

The following instructions assume this patch has been added to the wip-pinebook-pro branch. So apply the patch if necessary.

Many thanks to janneke and for his blog post —> https://joyofsource.com/guix-system-on-the-pinebook-pro.html https://joyofsource.com/guix-system-on-the-pinebook-pro.html

Some notes for successfully creating the image to boot guix on the Pinebook pro. Most of this is borrowed from janneke. Many thanks.

If you are using the Pinebook Pro to build this image, you need to have guix running on a foreign distro.

janneke showed how to use Debian, I used Arch Linux, but you can probably also use Manjaro.

Since I was booting arch linux from an SD card already, I installed the image on the SD card plugged into an adapter.

So with the SD card (256G in my case) inserted into a USB adapter.

Prepare SD Card:

sudo parted -- /dev/sda mkpart p 0% -1
sudo parted -- /dev/sda set 1 boot on
sudo mkfs.ext4 -F /dev/sda1
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

Clone guix:

git clone https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/guix.git https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/guix.git
cd guix
git checkout wip-pinebook-pro


For the next commands, you need to setup your Pinebook Pro to have enough swap, otherwise webkitgtk will fail to build and it takes about 3 Hours for that alone.

modprobe zram
echo lz4 > /sys/block/zram0/comp_algorithm
echo 12G > /sys/block/zram0/disksize
mkswap --label zram0 /dev/zram0
swapon --priority 100 /dev/zram0

Increase size of tmp file:

mount -o remount,size=6G,noatime /tmp

guix environment guix --ad-hoc git
./bootstrap
./configure --localstatedir=/var GUILE=$(type -p guile) GUILD=$(type -p guild)
make

sudo -E ./pre-inst-env guix system init config.scm /mnt --fallback

Once the image is created and copied along with uboot to the SD card, there is one more thing you need to boot.

You need to edit the /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf file on the SD card and alter the FDTDIR line.

I changed mine from

FDTDIR /gnu/store/ls1byzmapi911cylh4s6044x0cmc61c8-linux-libre-pinebook-pro-5.6.0/lib/dtbs

to

FDTDIR /gnu/store/ls1byzmapi911cylh4s6044x0cmc61c8-linux-libre-pinebook-pro-5.6.0/lib/dtbs/rockchip

Shutdown the laptop and insert the freshly minted SD card into the SD card slot on the Pinebook Pro.

You should now have a guix system running and if you setup your using the sample attached config.scm file, you will have Xorg running on hardware and xfce4 will run nicely.

Some extra notes (not the guix way):

Since I don’t have a usb wifi adapter, I cheated (until I get one) and I commented out the following in the gnu/packages/linux.scm file as follows:

--- a/gnu/packages/linux.scm
+++ b/gnu/packages/linux.scm
@@ -326,8 +326,8 @@ corresponding UPSTREAM-SOURCE (an origin), using the given DEBLOB-SCRIPTS."
(with-directory-excursion dir

- (invoke "/tmp/bin/deblob"))
+ (force-output))
+;; (invoke "/tmp/bin/deblob"))

(format #t "~%Packing new Linux-libre tarball...~%")
(force-output)

Also if you do this, you need to create the following folders on the SD card:

/lib/firmware/brcm
/lib/firmware/rockchip

Inside the brcm folder you need to place all the brcmfmac43456-sdio.* files

Inside the rockchip folder you need to place pptx.bin

I will leave it up to the reader to find and install these files, since this is not the preferred way.

Good luck!!

Thanks! Been working with the pinebook pro for some months now running
guix, and it's great to see others making progress on it. :)

The u-boot-pinebook-pro-rk3399 on guix master works correctly as well as
the one from wip-pinebook-pro (should be the same).

This seems like your u-boot does not contain the correct value for
"fdtfile". It should be rockchip/rk3399-pinebook-pro.dtb. Are you
actually running an older u-boot? Did you at any point run saveenv from
u-boot, which saves the old u-boot configuration with an inappropriate
fdtfile variable?


It would be better to split up your patches into a separate patch
series, it is hard to review as one single large patch changing many
things.

A few targeted comments below...

This last part of your mesa patch is already on core-updates. Looking
forward to when the rest is properly supported upstream!

This looks like leftovers from your hack breaking linux-libre :P

This obviously can't be enabled on all architectures. In the
linux-libre-arm64-generic and linux-libre-pinebook-pro kernels it's
already enabled as a module.

It obviously makes debugging easier to be available earlier, but it also
bloats platforms that do not use this driver.

This removes a comment from the refreshed patch; I presume the comment
is still appropriate, though?

This might break some things where a different opengl is the default,
some architectures or platforms may require a different opengl
implementation.

I seem to recall some conversations in Debian about the complexities
around which opengl to enable per-architecture or per-platform or ... a
complicated matrix of concerns.

Hi Vagrant,

Sorry, this should have been applied to commit d4c6e06f369024efc63e11de1a5bacd3fe9f7e8d on the tip-pinebook-pro branch.

The rest of my answers below.

I’m not sure what this problem is exactly. For some reason the rockchip folder is not being added
to the end of the patch for the FDTFILE, also, you do not need to actually specify the file as u-boot will
find it as long as it’s on the directory.

Doh, you are correct, my mistake. This should of course be left as the original code.

Oops, my bad. I've been merging master and core-updates locally and
forgot the status of wip-pinebook-pro... I think I was waiting for the
core-updates merge, but it's probably worth merging master just to get
the updated u-boot-pinebook-pro-rk3399 based more closely on upstream
u-boot!

It's probably a bug in the u-boot fork that's still in wip-pinebook-pro.

Regardless of which branch it applies to, the comment in this patch
should probably be kept, unless it's no longer relevent.

From what I remember there were no *good* options; to fix things for one
platforms, you break things for another. In guix it might be slightly
better off in that you can have variant pacakges more easily, though for
libraries this would mean variants for everything that uses it,
too... :/


Thanks for joining the guix on pinebook pro adventures!

I would be happy to test that out when done!

Okay, I have to admit I was confused by this. Turns out when I was debugging, I accidentally
removed the comment (or at least my fingers did). I didn’t realize that and now I know why it
appeared in the patch set. Thus my comment about being applied to the correct commit.
That’s what happens when you don’t think things through enough.

From the different configuration files I’ve look at from other people,
it appears the patch could be done when the system is configured.
Does that sound like a better place to put it?

I don’t know how else to keep things from getting messy.

Will keep you posted. Once I've merged that, maybe you can rebase your
patch into a patch series?

Yeah, runtime detection is definitely the best option, if it's possible!

Success!!

I applied my newly revised patches to 76ac1d3918f91b9234cfb26c6519da0cf5f86302 on the wip-pinebook-pro branch.

u-boot correctly finds the rk3399-pinebook-pro.dtb file.

The extlinux.conf file no longer needs to be altered. It is as follows:

# This file was generated from your Guix configuration. Any changes
# will be lost upon reconfiguration.
UI menu.c32
MENU TITLE GNU Guix Boot Options
PROMPT 1
TIMEOUT 50
LABEL GNU with Linux-Libre-Pinebook-Pro 5.6.0

KERNEL /gnu/store/qs1292ckhvkprsgdyxq665qj167l5c07-linux-libre-pinebook-pro-5.6.0/Image
FDTDIR /gnu/store/qs1292ckhvkprsgdyxq665qj167l5c07-linux-libre-pinebook-pro-5.6.0/lib/dtbs
INITRD /gnu/store/2d01lxl21i74jflji5smi9fhwsgyqanf-raw-initrd/initrd.cpio.gz
APPEND --root=/dev/mmcblk1p1 --system=/gnu/store/453h9sqcqvnpj72k0gwia3zsfavhar4p-system --load=/gnu/store/453h9sqcqvnpj72k0gwia3zsfavhar4p-system/boot ethaddr=${ethaddr} eth1addr=${eth1addr} serial=${serial#} video=HDMI-A-1:1920x1080@60 video=eDP-1:1920x1080@60 vga=current


The FDTDIR /gnu/store/qs1292ckhvkprsgdyxq665qj167l5c07-linux-libre-pinebook-pro-5.6.0/lib/dtbs still has a rockchip sub-folder that contains the rk3399-pinebook-pro.dtb file.

I decided to go back to my older SD card and remove the rockchip from the FDTDIR path, and it also booted.

I know previously that janneke and I had problems with this, but obviously along the way something was fixed.

At any rate, it’s nice to see the image boot and no longer having to edit the extlinux.conf file.

I will have to put together a patch set in the near future.

Cheers!

Brian C. Woodcox
