    [ROM] Beelink GT King Pro - Debian 10 Buster & Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Focal Fossa Firmware

    Beelink GT King Pro - Debian 10 Buster & Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Focal Fossa Firmware

    I prepared two Linux Firmwares for Beelink GT-King Pro, GT-King users can use them too.

    I used Linux Kernel 4.9 because mainline kernel drivers for Amlogic s922x is not yet fully funtional.
    Whenever I tried to build firmware with Mainline Linux Kernel I got lots of errors.


    Debian 10 Buster

    The Debian project has announced the release of Debian 10 (code-named "buster"), the latest stable version from the popular community project and the world's largest Linux distribution whose beginnings date back to 1993: "After 25 months of development the Debian project is proud to present its new stable version 10, which will be supported for the next 5 years. This new release of Debian comes with a lot more software than its predecessor; the distribution includes over 13,370 new packages, for a total of over 57,703 packages. Most of the software in the distribution has been updated. Debian again ships with several desktop applications and environments. Among others it now includes GNOME 3.30, KDE Plasma 5.14, LXDE 10, LXQt 0.14, MATE 1.20 and Xfce 4.12. With buster, Debian brings a mandatory access control framework enabled by default. New installations of Debian buster will have AppArmor installed and enabled."


    Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Focal Fossa

    Iain Lane has announced the release of Ubuntu 20.04, a new long-term support (LTS) version of the popular distribution. Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 LTS features the latest version of the GNOME desktop environment, 3.36. Notable changes from 18.04 LTS include performance improvements, a new lock screen design, and support for fractional scaling under X11. 20.04 LTS also features a new look-and-feel: the Yaru theme, available in both light and dark variants. 20.04 LTS also brings support for installing an Ubuntu desktop system on top of ZFS. The latest version brings performance enhancements and optional encryption support. Zsys, Ubuntu’s ZFS system tool, provides automated system and user state saving. Tight integration with GRUB allows a user to revert to any system state on boot and go back in time to pave the way to a bulletproof Ubuntu Desktop."

    I'm sorry for the inconvenient log messages about Camera Service.
    You can rid of them by removing the file below.
    /etc/systemd/system/sysinit.target.wants/camera_isp_3a_server.service
    
    running the command below in console will solve it.
    
    rm /etc/systemd/system/sysinit.target.wants/camera_isp_3a_server.service
    Enjoy,

    Regards,
