hmm I've updated the image recently.. let me try it and I'll report back if I can reproduce it or not.
Did it work anytime since last month for you or was it always like this?

I've looked at /var/log/history
It did update, quite at the beginning.

Thanks a lot for this image. As I've been having issues with upgrading it to stretch, but I have found a way, here is a quick post. (A typical symptom of this problem is to have apt update stuck at "working". For some reason it does not report /usr/lib/apt/methods/https has crashed.)

Install from scratch works well, and at this point /usr/lib/apt/methods/https also works. Updating the packages using jessie also works.

If I replace jessie by stretch in the apt/sources.list (and subdirectories), after the update /usr/lib/apt/methods/https segfaults. It's interesting to see that the upgrade to apt-transport-https is held back, but doing a dist-upgrade does not fix it, it still segfaults.

To get it back to working, I did this:

Code: Select all

apt remove apt-transport-https
apt autoremove
apt install apt-transport-https
I now can update from the repository.

Maybe I grabbed the wrong one. When did you upgrade and where exactly do I get the proper image?

To be honest I'm not so sure anymore.
I've updated the XU3/XU4 image, but maybe not the other images.
I still haven't had time to test it yet, but the latest image should always be on the first post for downloading.
I'm also not sure if I will be able to update the image this month, as Christmas is around the corner and I will be visiting my parents for a while.

Thank you so much! I was about to give up on my U3 and order a new board and then I found this image.
Worked like a charm!
Thanks again!

glad you like it.. there's tons of software available for the U3 available for that image.
try apt-cache search odroid to see what i'm talking about.
If you have issues with the image let me know.

Hey meveric

Kudos for this Jessie image. I'm into Debian and its derivatives (trying to avoid Ubuntu as much as I can as I prefer minimal stuff) and thanks to you I got my U3 on Jessie which I managed to upgrade to Stretch. It's quite a shame that there's no more support for the U3 which has such interest (judging by the posts online and also the number of posts in the Hardkernel forums).

Not sure what the implications of running Stretch on the U3 with the old kernel 3.8.13.30 rather than 4.x really are in terms of security & performance... But looking at the attempts by many it seems like it is a tough task to get new kernels working on this good old board.

Cheers & Keep Up the good work... Hardkernel should give you a medal! ;)

I still supply software for Debian Jessie, which should run fine on the ODROID U3.
So it's not entirely dead yet.
Debian Stretch normally requires Kernel 3.16 at minimum as there are some syscalls that will not work without it and you will see many entries in /var/log/syslog cause of the missing syscall with Kernel 3.8.
I know there are some people already using Kernel 4.x (or even 5.x) for the Exynos 4 series of ODROIDs.
But I haven't had time to investigate.
Wished I had, as the board Exynos 4 series is still one of my favorite boards, and some of them I still use today.

hello. I used win32diskimager-odroid to install this image on a micro sd card. unfortunately, the system does not want to start. can u help me? the card has 16 gb, and the mini partition tool (windows tool) shows 2 partitions after uploading the image on the card: boot and debian 500 mb. the rest of the space is undeveloped. thanks

and you have an ODROID U2/U3 where you try to run this on?
Have you made sure you picked the correct image for your board?

Yes that is correct.
There is a script in place that will enlarge the partition to the full size of the SD card after the first boot.

It's odd though that is not booting. Do you have an UART to check the output of the boot sequence?

Unfortunately I do not have. android is booting, I remember that I also used to work 14.04 once, but not every version. is there any other way to put it on the card? I remember that when 14.04 was required to expand the partition.
I will try on a different card.
all my cards: kingston 8 or 16 gb sdhc
before write the image to micro sd, I delete partitions, create exFat and put in. wrong ?

you don't need to create any partition.. the .img houses serveral partitions itself.
If you write the .img file to the exFat partition, then yes, that is the problem, do not write it to the exfat, do write it to the entire drive.

In fact I suggest abandon win32diskimager all together and instead use Etcher to flash the image, this is probably far more productive.

There might still be quite some manual steps involved to get everything working.
Not sure if the image already uses HTTPS and you also need to update setup-odroid since Jessie is now in LTS support only.

I installed the latest image, updated all packages and could also install Mythtv with all components.
But now I need to compile a kernel module for a usb v4l stick which is supported from kernel 3.19 onwards. The kernel here is still
3.8.13.30. The needed driver is part of the v4l media_build package. Though all dev tools and progs are installed, all compilation attempts fail with quite a lot of warnings and eventually the Error 2 saying "recipe for target 'all' failed". Alright, it's Debian on arm71 but shouldn't it be possible to compile drivers from media_build ? Any hints?

as you already stated, your module is for Kernel 3.19 this Image has Kernel 3.8... that's a huge difference.
And no, there is no Kernel 3.19 that you can simply install and everything works.

How about the 3.16 and 4.9 linux images which are in your repo? Can one of these be installed without further adoo? Would the U3 boot with it?

they are not for the ODROID U3.
3.16 is for ODROID C2 the 4.9 is for ODROID N2.
In fact both are for arm64 (64bit) CPUs and wouldn't boot at all on an armhf (32bit) board such as the ODROID U3.
