PicUntu Home://io edition – complete pre-installed Linux system for RK3066 – MK808 MiniPCs

0

JustinTime4Tea on slatedroid.com has built a nice package based on PicUntu updated with latest drivers and offering a complete Linux system pre-installed for multi usage with tons of gaming, development, office, Internet and multimedia applications ready to use. The Mali400 GPU integrated on the RK3066 processor is partially supported, offering GLES/EGL hardware acceleration on some games and applications. PicUntu Home://io edition is currently supported mainly on the MK808 MiniPC (available for ~ $42 / €35) it should work on other RK3066 devices equipped with the same hardware, specifically WIFI drivers (RK901 / Broadcom BCM40181 – 4329 chipset). Original PicUntu package and Home://io edition are both works in progress, wider support for more Rockchip RK3066 (maybe RK3188 as well) based devices is expected in the future.
