Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop for Odroid U2 / U3 available

Unread post by IOOI » Sun Mar 10, 2019 9:23 am

Hi everybody,

I created an image containing Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop available here: https://github.com/IOOI-SqAR/odroid/rel ... 308.img.xz md5sum: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/IOOI- ... .xz.md5sum

The image is suitable for 128GB microSDXC-cards (119 GiBiByte or exacly 127865454592 Bytes), I used a SanDisk Ultra R100 microSDXC 128GB Kit, UHS-I U1, A1, Class 10 (SDSQUAR-128G-GN6MA), which has exactly this size — hence the size of the .img.

If you don't have an microSDXC card of this size (it costs just 23 Euros here, so come on!) or you just don't trust me, the instruction are here:
https://github.com/IOOI-SqAR/odroid.

Have fun and please report back if the image works on the U3 or the X2.

regards,

IOOI

thank you for this image however i`ve never seen a 1.4gb image flash out to 128 gb is it mostly free space/unused space because of the drive capacity and so on...

however a 128 gb sd is going to cost me 50$ where i am so not so cheap i am almost trending towards a emmc considering the price difference..but still very awesome

Sorry, I had no smaller SD card lying around … but you could follow my instructions that I posted here: https://github.com/IOOI-SqAR/odroid, it's really not that difficult to do it yourself.

I just installed it, it runs but I have no media to test if it is "smooth". Mouse stutters a bit …

Hi,

Many thanks for the great news, but I'd like to continue using eMMC modules.
Is it possible to make it work with eMMC modules too…?

Regards
