And if yes, do you have a release time-plan?

How far is mainline support for C1? Last time I was playing around there was just pure basics, not even HDMI out.

Kernel 3.10.y is too old for Bionic/Stretch.

I did some quick checking. kernel 4.17.3 It boots, 4 cores are up, memory works, serial console works, USB works.

HDMI not working, eMMC sometimes, ethernet also broken, ... usable for some applications.

Broken ethernet limits its usage...

Agree. But I think that is fixable with some detail inspection. It's a problem with negotiation ... I don't have more time to fiddle around ATM. I also put it into our build system, so one can proceed from here if there is an interest.

We are clearing some issue in C2 Kernel 3.16 on Ubuntu 18.04 these days.
viewtopic.php?f=140&t=29735&p=227272#p227258
viewtopic.php?f=136&t=23143&start=250#p227333
viewtopic.php?f=145&t=31304

I think we can release C1 Ubuntu 18.04 image a few weeks later.
But there will be no major Kernel update due to missing 2D/3D acceleration feature in the upstream kernel.

I think Armbian must be better for server/headless computing application if 4.17.x works stably without video/audio output.

No. I'll wait for the minimal image. And reflash it.

Any chance of a newer kernel for C1? (Not talking about 4.x. I know thats not possible)
I wanted to try zswap but apparently it's only available on 3.11+.

So they will bring the minimal image? Any idea how long it took in the past, for the minimal image to be released after the mate one?

You can do a minimal install from Ubuntu 16.04.5 to Ubuntu 18.04.1 with Debootstrap as explains here :
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Insta ... ebootstrap

Before that, you have to do "sudo apt update" and "sudo apt upgrade".
Next, power off your Odroid C1, insert its SD-card into an host PC for resizing the second partition /dev/mmcbk0p2 and create a new partition for the next install. A size about 2Go is sufficant.
Then power on the Odroid C1 with the SD-card.
Next I proceed via SSH from my PC for using debootstrap as explained in the previous URL :

Code: Select all

sudo debootstrap bionic $mountdir
At the end of the process, don' forget to add /etc/fstab in the new partition with the right UUID of the next root file system
And change this UUID in the boot.ini file in the boot partition (the first one)

Code: Select all

blkid /dev/mmcblk0p3
Next, copy lib/modules in the new install

Code: Select all

sudo cp-aR  /lib/modules /$mountdir/lib/
Configuration for networking in Ubuntu 18.04.1 has changed. Use now netplan : Copy /etc/apt/sources.list.d/odroid.list in the new install

I do the same task with Debian Stretch.

Code: Select all

sudo debootstrap stretch $mountdir http://httpredir.debian.org/debian
Now I have 3 OS on the same SD-card. For switching easily in an OS, i change boot.ini file like this :
ODROIDC-UBOOT-CONFIG

# Ubuntu Xenial 16.04.5
setenv rootfs "bff5c1b7-e61b-4492-a3e4-c7a5ed62aed9"

# Ubuntu Bionic 18.04.1
# setenv rootfs "08561217-b5d4-4211-894f-c85ea23b7c3a"

# Debian Stretch
# setenv rootfs "229fa7f6-ab9d-4984-a0ca-3665ee0d3063"
........
setenv bootargs "root=UUID=${rootfs} rootwait ro ${condev} no_console_suspend fsck.repair=yes vdaccfg=0xa000 logo=osd1,loaded,0x7900000,720p,full dmfc=3 cvbsmode=576cvbs hdmimode=${m} m_bpp=${m_bpp} vout=${vout_mode} ${disableuhs} ${hdmi_hpd} ${hdmi_cec} ${enabledac} monitor_onoff=${monitor_onoff} max_freq=${max_freq} ${hid_quirks}"
For switching to an OS, comment and uncomment the good lines at the top of the file.

Be patient when rebooting, it takes some minutes.

When you execute "apt update" you can get a warning message about Odroid repository.
To avoid this message, do :

Code: Select all

sudo apt install dirmngr # required for Stretch
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 2DD567ECD986B59D
After having install Strech and Bionic, that's "lsblk" shows me :

/dev/sda is a HDD for laptop connected on a USB2.0 port. It has a GPT partition table. Except swap partition, all are in ext4 format.

I have attempted a remote upgrade from 16.04 to 18.04 however the board doesn't seem to come back online.
Problem, there is 450 miles between the board and me.....

Would the upgrade reset the network?
I had no major issues nor concerns during the upgrade, I did the same previously upgrading to 16.04 a while ago and that worked.

Distribution upgrades are always critical and you should blame Canonical for that :)

If you need 18.04, start rather with a clean image. We provide it in the download section, the kernel was updated to 4.18.1 today.
