Cant get ethernet drivers to work on Ubuntu 20.04 on H2+

Post by Scris101 »

Hi,

I just recently got my H2+ and I've been running into an obscene amount of errors. After a few days of struggling just to get an OS to install to the emmc I've finally managed to install Ubuntu 20.04. I had to switch installation setups and flash media about a dozen times because I kept getting kdb panics and timeouts.

Now my problem is internet. By default there's no internet drivers on Ubuntu for this? As well as no wifi, or any other way to connect to the internet, so downloading and installing the drivers from the internet doesn't work.

I tried to install the .deb package downloaded from this guide: https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-h2/appli ... _on_h2plus but when I open it in Software Install I get stuck on "Pending Installation" forever. Trying to install it in the terminal using sudo dpkg and apt install says I don't have the proper dependencies. "dependency problems - leaving unconfigured"

SO in order to try to install the proper dependencies I need to get internet to a device with no internet drivers or access. So I tried to USB tether my iPhone to the H2+. Still no go, drivers for USB tethering also arent included. I managed to install ipheth-utils from here :https://ubuntu.pkgs.org/20.04/ubuntu-un ... 4.deb.html but after installing and restarting I still can't connect to the internet. I'm shown that I have a wired connection, but there's a question mark above it and it's greyed out.

I found that I also have to install two other drivers, libimobiledevice-utils and libimobiledevice-dev. I managed to download the packages from https://pkgs.org/ Again, installing with Software Install gives me "Pending Installation" and trying to install using the terminal allowed me to install libimobiledevice-utils but not -dev which says I have unmet dependencies.

Any suggestions about how to get internet on this thing would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I had the same issue- I followed instructions (#2 in the guide linked by @odroid- Installing the Realtek 8125B driver using the provided .deb package on Debian-based Linux), and it worked just fine. Thank you!
