[OS] Debian Jessie

Unread postby meveric » Sun Dec 06, 2015 1:29 am

Here's a very minimal Debian Jessie image for the ODROID U2/U3 series.

It's just a headless server image only with user root at the moment. But it has all my repositories included, which allows for easy installation and updates of packages such as Kernel and Headers, or Kodi, or Chromium Browser, or whatever.

The image has my usual setup: means on first boot it's resizing the rootfs partition and configures SSH. It will automatically reboot after the initial setup after which this image is ready to use.
Kernel and headers are already installed if you need to build your own drivers.
A few basic tools such as ntp, htop, mc, vim and bash-completion are already installed for your convenience.

Download: http://oph.mdrjr.net/meveric/images/Jes ... 5-U.img.xz
Size compressed: 105MB
Size uncompressed: 566 MB

Default Login: root
Default Password: odroid

It's ready to be used as a server image.

First things first:
Since there's constantly new development for this image and ODROIDs in general the First thing you should do after the image is up and running is to install all updates:
Code: Select all
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade



How to convert the image into a Desktop image:

The image can easily converted into a full Desktop image looking similar to this:
Image
You can use the preinstalled tool "setup-odroid" to install a Desktop and setup a user for it, or if you want to do it manually you can use the following steps:

update the package lists (if you haven't done yet)
Code: Select all
apt-get update

run tasksel to choose your preferred Desktop environment
please note: not all Desktop Environments are working perfectly on the ODROID, best choises probably are LXDE, and MATE, but XFCE and KDE should works as well.
Code: Select all
tasksel

Image
tasksel will take quite some time to download and install all the packages needed for a Desktop image and needs at least 1GB of extra disk space (better 2GB)
afterwards we need to install X11 framebuffer drivers:
Code: Select all
apt-get install xf86-video-armsoc-odroid

and for 3D acceleration the Mali GPU drivers
Code: Select all
apt-get install mali400-odroid

you also need a fitting xorg.conf for the framebuffer drivers:
Code: Select all
cd /etc/X11
wget http://oph.mdrjr.net/meveric/other/xorg.conf

If you are a more experienced user instead of tasksel you can always install the packages you want manually and therefore keep the image as slim as you want.

It's also recommended to create a new user account for the Desktop environment and NOT to logon as root.
For example:
Code: Select all
adduser odroid


After a reboot you should see a graphical login for your Debian Jessie image.

Once you have a Desktop running you can easily install all the packages available in my repository such as XBMC or Kodi
Code: Select all
apt-get install xbmc-odroid
# or
apt-get install kodi-odroid
# install firmware required for hardware decoding in XBMC/Kodi
apt-get install firmware-samsung
mkdir -p /lib/firmware/s5p-mfc
cp /lib/firmware/s5p-mfc.fw /lib/firmware/s5p-mfc-v6.fw  /lib/firmware/s5p-mfc/
or Chromium Browser
Code: Select all
apt-get install chromium-browser-odroid
# adding Flash support to Chromium Browser
apt-get install pepperflash-odroid
TVHeadend for live TV in Kodi
Code: Select all
apt-get install tvheadend
or arduino for development on arduino boards, ODROID SHOW, and other electronics platforms
Code: Select all
apt-get install arduino

I also advice you to install ffmpeg from Debian repository, it's a very good tool to watch and convert videos and well maintained from experienced Debian developers.
Checkout the HOWTO link in my signature to find more packages available in my repository :)

Please note:
Most of the packages available in my repository are X11 based, for example the mali400-odroid package are X11 GPU drivers, or Kodi, is only available for X11, so you need a Desktop environment to use them.
Also, I haven't installed all drivers and firmwares available. If you want to use Wifi Model 4 you might have to install the firmware-ralink package first available on standard Debian repository.

If you find any bugs please let me know, and if anyone else wants to, I can easily convert this image for ODROID X,X2.
Have fun :)

Hints:
Changing language:
If you install a Desktop environment you should already have keybord-configuration installed, it will ask upon the first installation what keyboard layout it should use.
This configuration is for your X11 Desktop so you have your desired keyboard layout.
For console you need to install console-setup to do the same, so just in case:
Code: Select all
apt-get install console-setup keyboard-configuration
dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

should be all that is needed to change your keyboard layout.
You probably want to set timezone as well
Code: Select all
dpkg-reconfigure tzdata


CEC support:
Code: Select all
apt-get install libcec
# if needed you can also install the cec tools
apt-get install cec-utils

After that you need to add a new udev rule so you can access the CEC device:
Code: Select all
echo 'KERNEL=="CEC",SUBSYSTEM=="misc",MODE="0666"' > /etc/udev/rules.d/20-hkl_cec.rules

Hardware Acceleration for Chromium:
Make sure you add these in your Chromium configuration under /etc/chromium.d/ or /etc/chromium-browser/default
Code: Select all
export CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --use-gl=egl --ignore-gpu-blacklist --disable-accelerated-2d-canvas --num-raster-threads=4 --audio-buffer-size=4096"

Except for 'libcec' all Installitionen made. Great. Works directly !!

Thanks for the good information.

Hello!

I am using this distro, so far so good. :)
I have problems with apple making airplay useless on non apple devices at the moment, and i am finding a new way to stream spotify music to my odroid.

I found this: https://github.com/crsmoro/scplayer and this : https://github.com/tokazio/scplayer this is just a fork with OpenAL or whatever. I've done stuff according to a reply in this post: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=221145

I don't have error like other people in the post, SCplayer starts and i can see the web interface, i can control it from my mobile so all good.
BUT, no sound coming out from nowhere.
and it says on the start that mixer does not support pcm i found the error in the code : https://github.com/crsmoro/scplayer/blo ... rImpl.java

but im not a java guru and dont really understand it.
I looked after PCM and found this, but it just explains what is pcm http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/alsa-lib/pcm.html

Anyway, i found a strange thing, you can do -Dlist.mixers=true and it lists available mixers in your setup, you can even choose from them with -Dmixer=number of mixer
The list coming out from odroid is the jack out jack in and hdmi out

and only jack in supports PCM whatever it means.

on forums i read that raspi2 users need to execute this command: "echo snd_bcm2835 >> /storage/.config/modules-load.d/audio.conf" to enable sound in command line.

do we need to do the same? if then how?

it was 2 am so i went to bed after, i havent tried it with not root user, and neither from gui.

if someone finds a solution it can be a way to listen spotify on odroid.

Thanks!!
Viktor

Right now I'm working on an updated version of Clementine for Debian which I probably will publish soon, since the initial tests looked rather good:

As you can see in the pictures it has spotify support as well, but I'm not sure if it's working, since I don't have an account there.

by default SSH login for root is disabled.
That's default for Debian Jessie.
Check the file /etc/ssh/sshd_config
You will find a line: "PermitRootLogin without-password"
comment out that line and restart ssh and you can login as root using ssh.
Default password is "odroid"

You should add that to the OP.

Nice image, works great. Using it as my tvheadend backend and for general compiling.

Works like a charm. Great work! If I can make one suggestion for future images - please include wireless-tools in the base image, not all of us have console access near an ethernet port.

I'm going to use this base image to build a pkgsrc-based system as I'm more used to NetBSD than Linux.
This should be interesting...

Good Idea.. I'll make a note for it :)
Edit:
Are you sure it's not working?
I just checked on the C1 and Wifi Module 4 was working out of the Box.
Should be the same on the U3.


What Wifi Module are you using?

The RTL8192cu
It's recognised as an interface, but the iw* tools are not there and using /etc/network/interfaces, I see the wifi device blinking twice then going off - it never gets associated with the network.
Once I've installed wireless-tools and one of the sets in tasksel (MATE I think), it started working as expected on boot, before getting to lightdm.

hmm, I see what you mean.

Yes it's a little hard to configure WLAN just using /etc/network/interfaces if you're not used to it.
I thought you meant the driver to run the device, but yeah, wireless-tools would make sense. I'll look into it :)

Hi,

i'm conscious that SSH login for root is disabled by default.
my question is: Is there any other regular user/pass that i can use to access the server via SSH for the first time after which i can allow root login or just "su -".
excuse my ignorance :)

Thanx

i tried to edit the sshd_config on Windows before uploading the image to my u3 device, but i couldn't make a .img file back after extracting it.

Over HDMI with a keyboard, you will need to logon to the server physically and edit the file or do it on a Linux machine.

Ensure you have algif_skcipher kernel module loaded.

ok, did some testing, I had a typo for the module, I rebuild the Kernel and uploaded a new version.
I did some testing with it and both cryptsetup benchmark as well as creating luks partitions are working now.
I have a propper /dev/dm-0 for a 1 GB partition that I created on my ODROID :)

meveric,

thank you for getting a U3 Debian version out similar to your XU4 image. a quick forum search i came across a walk through to compile TP-LINK T4U ( RTL8812AU) drivers. just wondering if your planning on adding support for the new ac wireless adapters similar to the XU4 image.

thank you.

No plans, are you sure the drivers are not yet included?
Most of these things were included into the Kernel at some point.
Besides that, since you have the headers installed for the Kernel, you can probably just create a module for it following the guide.

Maveric,

I did follow the guide here

viewtopic.php?f=112&t=12049

Which did create the module. I just never got the card to be recognized. On the xu4 I had no problems as you already had it included. I wasn't upset as the internet connection at my house really doesn't need wireless AC speeds. I do see that most of the wireless AC USB adapters are using the RTL8812AU chipset.

I might go back through and see if I can figure out what I missed later next weekend.

Thank you for getting us a Debian Jessie image to run on the U3.

Dear meveric
Thanks for the image. It works, so far so good. I'm from Germany and would now like to change the appearance on German.
Switching the keyboard to German, as described above, unfortunately, had no effect.
If I, for example, try language-selector-gnome to install with apt-get I get a message that does not exist the package.
On my XU4 that was no problem. I am now very confused and hope for your help.

Greetings from Germany
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

wenn Du später ein paar posts mehr hast, kannst Du mich auch gerne per PN auf deutsch anschreiben, wenn das für Dich leichter ist. Hier jetzt aber erstmal die Antworten auf Englisch ;)

I tried it many times and it always worked. Make sure you use the right program. There's one program that is just for the terminal and another program that is for desktop.
If you install a Desktop I advice using MATE, it will ask for keyboard layout during install and will always work.
If you use it for terminal only you need to install console-setup and use it, will work. In both cases make sure you reboot the system afterwards.

language-selector-gnome only exists on Ubuntu, not on Debian, that's why there are other packages. There's also a graphical tool for selecting the language if you install MATE Desktop.

Hi meveric.

Vielen Dank für das Angebot, komme gerne darauf zurück. Ich bin schon etwas älter und komme noch aus der Zeit von Rope-Memory. Mein Englisch ist auch ziemlich eingerostet. Aber, damit jeder was davon hat, die Antwort auf Englisch.

Thank's for your advice. "Dpkg-reconfigure locales" has solved the problem. The desktop now appears in German. :D
Under System -> Settings -> Keyboard the German Layout was choosen but without functionality. (I don't why) Reloading of the German Keyboard layout brought success. I think it's a good idea to study dpkg and his posibillyties. It's a wonderfull tool.
I'm a newbie in Debian and Linux and try as best as I can to learn the stuff. Such tips are very usefull to understand the differences between debian and ubuntu.
Of course, such excellent tutorials too.

Best Regards and Thankx
Thomas

Sorry to be unclear.

I meant, do you have a PGP signature for the file Debian-Jessie-1.0~RC2-20151205-U.img.xz which I can use to verify the integrity of the file I downloaded, before I put it to use?

I have your public key from the file server
(fingerprint = 48FE 1327 A9B6 4D39 8DF8 BA40 96C5 8306 39B8 AE9C)
so that would be the obvious one to use.

Thanks again,
Mark

signing would be a little bit too much, but I can give you the MD5 sums for the files:

Thanks meveric,

That's good, thank you, the MD5 sums match.

However, it's been shown (e.g. http://www.mathstat.dal.ca/~selinger/md5collision/) that it's possible to create different files with the same MD5sums, so it would be really, really nice if you could sign the file with a key that was well-integrate with the web of trust.

not sure if any of my keys is "well-integrated in the web of trust" ;)
I have a couple of keys, but besides here or for work I don't use them.

I can sign it with my key that I use to sign my packages, but that's about it.

Great Work here,
Just fired up my odroidu2 and got everything working for the most part.
For the desktop i'm using ldxe. Even with the drivers installed there is still some expected window lag right? Like it takes a few seconds for the window to re-draw?
I probably should also update my sd card to a class 10 which should help some.
Currently using hdmi to vga adapter. I can easily watch youtube videos at 360p without to much of a problem. But once i bump it up to 720p it starts to lag out.

Any thoughts thanks!

Yes, there is no 2D acceleration (desktop) for ODROIDs at the moment, which makes Windows movement laggy. "A few seconds" is a little bit long, the window should pick up in less than a second, but noticeable slow.
If you ONLY use it for Desktop applications (no fullscreen applications such as Kodi) you can actually use some Desktop compositors like xcompmgr to speed up the desktop to full speed without lags.

What browser are you using for youtube? Desktop has no video acceleration so youtube videos are rendered in software mode. If you use something like FireFox/IceWeasel then you slow your system down even more since it misses any type of hardware acceleration.
Using Chromium allows for some form of hardware acceleration. The Webpages are rendered in OpenGL ES/EGL (with the correct starting parameters for Chromium). Which speeds up browsing. 720p should work with Chromium just fine. You can even install pepperflash for Chromium which allows for flash support in Chromium. Not sure about the U2/U3 (haven't tested it in a while) but on the XU3/XU4 with flash you can get 1080p running in Chromium. So I'd say at least 720p should work without issues using pepperflash.

I haven't tried loggin in via UART in a very long time, could be that it's not working. I normally only use SSH or direct access.
Currently I'm a little too busy to look into it, so I can not give you an ETA when I'll have time to look into this issue.
