Linaro Ubuntu 12.11 for ODROID-U2

Unread postby odroid » Sat Feb 23, 2013 4:56 am

Ubuntu system files are based on the Linaro Ubuntu 12.11.

Here are key features.
- Linux Kernel 3.0.51 with 2GByte RAM configuration
- gcc 4.4 toolchain (arm-2010q1-188-arm-none-eabi-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.bz2)
- SMP driven Quad-Core processing with DVFS
- PMIC device driver
- USB 2.0 High-speed Host driver for Exynos-4412 Prime HSIC interface
- Ethernet + USB Hub device driver
- HDMI display driver
- HDMI audio driver
- SD card driver (Max 50Mhz clock)
- eMMC driver
- Mali GPU driver (Not activated yet)
- Audio codec MAX98090 driver
- USB UVC Webcam driver
- Automatic FSCK-FIX by default
- GPT/EFI/NTFS is enabled
- Overclock is possible via command line (we will let you know how to do it)

The eMMC image will be released in next week.

We know that kernel version might be lower than your expectation.
But we will use this 3.0.x for X11 3D HW acceleration for 1~2 months.
After that, we can jump to 3.7 or 3.8 if we can clear the GPU driver porting issues.

Kernel source will be opened via github within 5 days.


You can download the image in this link.
http://dn.odroid.com/Ubuntu_U2/20121228 ... op-uSD.zip


Here are md5sum value for verification of your downloaded file.
0d1a770114cad84631eef020c44cf36e odroidu2_20121228-linaro-ubuntu-desktop-uSD.zip
Default HDMI output resolutin is 1280x720.
If you want to change it to 1920x1080, copy the 'boot-hdmi1080.scr' to 'boot.scr' in the FAT32 partition of SD card.

Known issues:
After reboot process, the Ethernet driver is not working.
Normal power-off and power-on will not cause this issue.
We will try to fix this issue.

Power off in GUI is not working properly.
Open a terminal(Ctrl-Alt-t) and "sudo poweroff" to shutdown your device.


Update : 31-Dec-2012.

What's new !
- Fix the USB Keyboard freezing issue
- Fix the Ethernet freezing issue
- Fix Ethernet driver power-on-reset issue
(reboot cycle disabled the Ethernet in previous release)
- Add EXT3 file system driver
- Add FUSE driver
- Image size is reduced to 7GB for smaller memory card.

Kernel source can be accessed in this link.
https://github.com/hardkernel/linux/tree/odroid-3.0.y

Kernel Configuration file is "odroidu2_ubuntu_defconfig".
We should use the toolchain of arm-2010q1-188-arm-none-eabi-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.bz2


We still have many issues to be solved.


Update : 4-Jan-2013

What's new !
- 4 cores are always on (On-demand option is removed and Performance mode is added)
- Ethernet MAC address is defined in /usr/smsc_95xx_addr file.
(it is generated at the first booting with a random number)
- Power Off & Reboot menu in GUI is working. (Thanks to "nelf")
- Driver modules for USB devices are added.
(Let us know what do you need more)
- Compressed with xz to lower the heavy traffic on our server.
- Kernel source code can be found in this link.
https://github.com/hardkernel/linux/tree/odroid-3.0.y
- You can compile it with the GCC 4.6.x on board.
Kernel Configuration file is "odroidu2_ubuntu_defconfig".

1. It will be at some time.

2. You have to install only the latest .tar.gz

3. If you are having problems with Mali create a own thread in Issues and we'll handle from there.

That's a feature. unused cores are shut down completely. If any application would load CPU these cores would be switched on again.

Not so happy. Here's the output from the RS232 console. Processors periodically start and stop. At the same time, the System Monitor shows only one active processor.

I'm experiencing an X crash when using KDE. It often occurs when using X forwarding but sometimes not. Whenever it happens, the following is reported in the X.org log file:

I disabled the composite extension in the xorg.conf file but it did not appear to help. Any suggestions?

What window manager are you using on KDE ? Plasma or Plasma Active? Are you using the gles versions ?
Can you detail waht exactly are you doing?

I'll try to reproduce it in order to find it out.

I'm only working with unity at the moment, so never see this. :) Since I make the most things with ssh, unity doesn't bother me.

Uhm, how did you implement the pics in your post? Looks interesting!

I disabled the composite extension in the xorg.conf file but it did not appear to help. Any suggestions?


What window manager are you using on KDE ? Plasma or Plasma Active? Are you using the gles versions ?
Can you detail waht exactly are you doing?

I'll try to reproduce it in order to find it out.


I'm using plasma, not plasma active. I didn't realize gles versions existed, I'll try installing those.

Note: I switched to kwin_gles but that didn't help.

My first go at the Linaro Linux distribution. I start with the 20130125 image file name in bold blue below?

Same image for both SD and eMMC?

What's the purpose of the file with name in bold red below ? Havent seen any reference to it in this post.

For faster Mirrors, please look here:

For the file in bold red. It should be the kernelfile update or something like that. Nothing you need, because the newest update for 13 February installed this too.

If I'm not mistaken, the red one is just the root filesystem. It's explained how to use/update using these files here:
Updating_from_Root_File_System_Images

Yes, the blue file is for SD and eMMC install, indicated by the string SDeMMC.

It seems that there are header files missing in linux-headers-3.0.63-odroidu2_20130213_armhf.deb

e.g. arch / arm / include / asm / memory.h says
Code: Select all
#include <mach/memory.h>

But this file does not exist in my src directory.
The same with mach/timex.h, mach/ircqs.h,...

I recognized this by trying to compile the Linux TV drivers on my ODROID-U2.

Are these files really missing or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks

I'm having problems with the 3.0.63 version; after periods of heavy I/O to a USB hard drive all USB devices go offline (in this case "all" means the built-in smsc95xx NIC and the USB hard drive). The only way to resolve this is rebooting.

I can still access the device via the console, so if necessary I can do some debugging once this happens. A solution would be highly appreciated!

Also, if you could include swap support in the next build of the Linux kernel that would be great. I sometimes have tasks that require more than 2GB of RAM; being able to create a swap file on the SD or eMMC cards will really help with those.

If you really need swap follow the Ubuntu kernel rebuild guide to enable it

It might take a while to get it to the point of freezing. I've noticed it when doing a par2 repair on a 50+ GB file sitting on a USB drive; it gets through the verification and consistently crashes the USB sometime during the rebuild. I've started the process from the console now, if I get any specific errors I'll post them here.

ehi guys...i have a strange behaviour on linaro ubuntu from times,but always thinked it was my fault somewhere..now after many many clean re-install i can say it's a bug or something similar..i have it one times after 2 hours of use..and mostly when i have many active processes all in one...like 2\3 terminal section with 2\3 git clone process at same times.
The problem is that the section restart itself and go in the login page >(the initial one where you enter the password)
It's very annoying because i always lost everything the system was doing...being it downloading smething or anything else...curious to know if happens also with others users...ddid you ever saw that guys?
i don'r read of anyone having similar roblem..it's why i write that only now..
it happened with 25jan release,with 13feb release and also now on the 4march pre-beta release...it's driving me crazy because i can't do anything long (like git cloning big repository that need at least 40\50 minutes of data downloading.

We could download the kernel source from github several times and build it in parallel.
Can you capture any error message or kernel message when the session closes and restarts?
Is there any momory issue(OOM) or low-memory-kill stuff?

error capture
can you point me in any direction on how to check?dmesg is right?or have to use the uart kit?
i can easily replicate the problem i think,in less than hour...

oom\low memory killer problems
also those are supposed to be looked for in the error log?

sorry for my noobness,but i use linux OS only from 2 months,and began for android kernel related stuff :)

Recommend you to use zRam (modprobe zram num_devices=4 for each CPU-core), and than use /dev/zramX as swap (mkswap/swapon).

Why the hell did you use Linaro 12.03?
Try some things, maybe the armel version works, maybe the official version provided here, but I really think, noone can give you support for this old version of Linaro. :) Update is impossible?

Good day,

first of all i woul like to thank you for your great wok.
My question is: Can you tell me what is better if i install Mali 3D driver?
I tried driver in Linaro Ubuntu, Fedora and Suse and my opinion is: with driver i have lower fps than without.

Can i play video (somehow without lags) with normal framerate?
In old forum i saw some threda where mdrjr played via ffplay accelerated video.

Will be publish some roadmap of development or something?

Thank you very much.

Let me clarify this.

Mali itself is just a 3D accelerator! Not even 2D support is there. Its a 3D only.
Video decoding has no connection at all with Mali.
If you install mali drivers you'll take benefits of using 3D OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0. Nothing else.
Hardware video decoding is handled by another part of the chip called MFC.
Samsung MFC is very powerful and yet very very complicated. We don't have the needed experience to support it so quick on Linux. I yet still need to understand parts of the MFC and learn the entire OpenMAX api in order to make something, so this isn't a week project! Sorry.

My video showed a 720p video being SOFTWARE decoded using ffplay. ODROID's are powerful enough to softdecode any 1080p video. However it requires ffmpeg built with neon (not the default).

I'll make a guide on how to build ffmpeg on Ubuntu the latest version with Neon enabled! So you guys can at least play some stuff ok?

If you asked if you can donate to me? I would say no. I don't take donations because I believe that there are people needing it more them I do.

IF you want to donate to hardkernel the best way is to support us is buying our products!

Also we don't take donations to specific software areas, we are a very small group at hardkernel. Less them 10 people! We do thing as they come and as we can :)
