Ubuntu 24.04 (Preview) for ODROID-N2/N2Plus/M1/M1S

Post by tobetter »

20240317: Ubuntu 24.04 (Noble Numbat) preview version is ready.

New Ubuntu 24.04 (Noble Numbat) will be released after 5-6 weeks, now we have preview version to download and run on ODROID-N2/N2Plus/C4/M1/M1S. Linux kernel 6.6 is coming with this release, probably it will be switched to the version of Linux kernel 6.8 as announced the official version of Ubuntu 24.04, but maybe keep running Linux kernel 6.6 that is a LTS version of upstream. Also note that I am thinking of managing the device tree overlays in an independent package from Linux kernel 6.6, but it's not completed yet. Therefore, new image with Ubuntu 24.04 won't work any device tree overlay support yet.

Download links. Welcome your feedback. :D

Since I had a bit of time, I'd though to test with the M1S.
Only result I had however was solid red + solid blue ledlights.

Test setup:
- Booting from SD
- the internal eMMC contains the factory Ubuntu (not used)
- the NVMe was detached to prevent interference
- power use was approximately 1.25W from which I expect the startup was not completed.
- Wireless LAN (8192) and Wireless keyboard were plugged in.

Sometimes the system won't start without ethernet plugged in, but I hope it is not the case in this early stage.
Does the M1S on boot with the image at your place?

Next I tried with a N2plus.

Here also I bypassed the eMMC and installed from SD.
The installation process is weird, normally you install and then you have an image on your disk.
Here you download a large diskimage and then you start you get a fairly minimal installation.

The next step

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
Gives you the normal installation, with keyboard, language, etc..
But the installation is still cripled,

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade
is needed to complete the installation.

After the basic updates the window/session manager still needs to be installed. That proved hard. For lxde dependencies are missing. I managed to install xfce.
I believe installation of the ubuntu-session was hanging due to a cups dependency.

I see some information onscreen flashing.
According to the logfiles lightdm and Xorg should be working, but I'm looking at a black screen.
Via ssh I can login. Hardly a usable system.

Code: Select all

$ uname -a
Linux server 6.6.0-odroid-arm64 #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed, 21 Feb 2024 07:17:12 +0000 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux
$ cat /proc/version 
Linux version 6.6.0-odroid-arm64 (tobetter@gmail.com) (gcc-12 (Ubuntu 12.3.0-14ubuntu1) 12.3.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils for Ubuntu) 2.42) #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed, 21 Feb 2024 07:17:12 +0000
$ cat /proc/device-tree/model 
Hardkernel ODROID-N2Plus
There are still lots of dependency problems upstream. The black screen is also a showstopper.

Awesome. I have here a C4 still running 5.13.16-202207222133~focal (don't remember what image I used back then) which is in a pressing need of an upgrade. I thought I wait until 24.04 - when I use one of these images now, will I be just "update+upgrade" to the final 24.04 release?

You could be able to upgrade to newer version with the command sudo do-release-upgrade -d and need more manual package update from ppa.linuxfactory.or.kr since /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ppa_linuxfactory_or_kr.list is not renamed not to update package from the server.
