Ubuntu Studio 13.10 Smooth Groove for ODROID-X2 (20140101)

Unread post by robroy » Wed Oct 09, 2013 2:29 pm

I created an Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander image, forked from the official XFCE Hard Kernel release, with a core suite of applications for audio recording, performance, mixing and production.

Download the image here:
13.10 Saucy Salamander: http://oph.mdrjr.net/robroyhall/images/ ... 101.img.xz
13.04 Raring Ringtail: http://oph.mdrjr.net/robroyhall/images/ ... 101.img.xz

European mirror by @traxo:
http://odroid.txmonitor.de/

Username: odroid
Password: odroid

Username: root
Password: odroid

Applications: Firefox, Chromium, Xine, Gimp, Transmission, Filezilla, Oracle JDK 8 and Ubuntu Studio.

Audio Packages: Aeolus, Ardour Digital Workstation, Audacity, Guitarix, Hydrogen, Linux Multimedia Studio, Mixxx, MuseScore, Phasex, Rakarrack, SooperLooper, Specimen, Tuxguitar and Yoshimi.

Autologin is enabled and boots directly to a single-user Ubuntu Studio environment running XFCE and JACK audio server.

If you enjoy my contributions to the Hard Kernel community, please consider donating an amount of your choice via the link in my signature.

Customizations left for you upon burning the image to your card:
  • 1. Resize the "rootfs" partition to fit your SD card, and format an additional partition for use as a swap file. This is best done on another Linux system using the GParted utility.
    2. Set your time zone using "sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata".
    3. Set your language using Preferences -> Language Support.
    4. Enable the swap partition, either temporarily for the current login session using Gparted, or permanently as described here.
Improvements and upgrades:
  • 1. To overclock to 1.92GHz, type "sudo gedit /etc/rc.local" in Terminal and remove the "#" from the beginning of the line that starts with "echo 1920000".
    2. Firefox has the IcedTea7 plugin installed for Java browser applets, and uses the built-in HTML5 player which is not compatible with Flash. Chromium has the Pepper Flash plugin installed for viewing Flash videos. Both Chromium and Firefox have the Adblock Plus add-on. The default browser is Firefox.
    3. All upgrades and updates have been run using aptitude, apt-get and synaptic.
    4. All orphaned and obsolete packages have been purged, including the original kernel.
    5. Lots of quality-of-life tweaks, such as setting folder preferences to List View, removing the Battery icon from the Status bar, setting the Chromium and Firefox preferences to their highest privacy settings, and installing wallpapers (/usr/share/wallpapers).
Features in this release:
  • Authentic Canonical Ubuntu 13.10
    Official HK kernel 3.8.13.10 with MIDI (commit 94ef9444fd48105105a12a3ce3db96b2e85b437c)
    Large collection of professional-quality audio production kits and applications
    Full MIDI support for keyboards and other MIDI instruments
    Samba file sharing server
    Installable on 8GB SD or eMMC
Notes:
  • Upgrading the kernel using the official update script will disable MIDI support. You may build and install a MIDI-enabled kernel by enabling all "CONFIG_SND" build options before compiling, followed by running "sudo modprobe snd_seq" in the Terminal window after rebooting. An example build configuration file is included in the MIDI kernel packages available here.

    Enabling a swap file or partition is required when working with large audio files (more here: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-add- ... ile-howto/)

wow that is great

A full distro that also contains "Ardour". Many thanks indeed for this because i may now
purchase an ODROID and recommend others to do the same for low cost linux pro audio work.

Do you, by any chance, know is this distro will work with the OCTA ODROID 8 core cpu board?

many thanks

Vince.

It works well with a MIDI keyboard too.

I plan to release a build in early 2014 for the -XU.

All the U2 OS images are working on the U3 as it is.
So we can say "Fully compatible".
