Download Confusion

Unread post by rooted » Sun Dec 02, 2018 11:49 am

I have watched people over and over again download the wrong image for the device they have.

The reason this happens is because they don't understand the filenames have the device name in them and they are all grouped together.

The download listings should not be all together, each device should have it's own folder.

Like this structure does not work:

http://east.us.odroid.in/ubuntu_18.04lts/

C2 files should be in a C2 folder, XU4 files should be in an XU4 folder.

Agreed.

I've seen a few people stumble on that.

The most useful information is often the best organized information. So yes, I agree.
