ODROID U2 Kernel

Unread postby klabacita » Wed Apr 11, 2018 2:09 am

Hi guys.

Sorry to ask this dumb question, is my first interaction with odroid, I got a odroid u2 which is old but looks like works, I even got a 8GB MicroSD card.

I want to start learning how to use this devices which for my plans are great.

What is the latest kernel this devices support and where I can get them?

I want to use this devices to monitor same services on my network.

Thanks all for your time. :)

Images are here:

https://dn.odroid.com/4412/Linux/ubuntu-u2-u3/

Use apt to update after writing and booting the device.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Actually the latest images can be found here:
https://dn.odroid.com/4412/Linux/ubuntu_16.04lts/

Please don't use Ubuntu 14.04 or older as they are no longer supported.
Especially as the older images (14.04 and older) do not support updates via apt-get as HardKernel has no repositories for Kernel etc. for the older ODROIDs.

To answer the original question, the latest "official" Kernel is 3.8.13.30.
Donate to support my work on the ODROID GameStation Turbo Image for U2/U3 XU3/XU4 X2 X C1 as well as many other releases.
Check out the Games and Emulators section to find some of my work or check the files in my repository to find the software i build for ODROIDs.
If you want to add my repository to your image read my HOWTO integrate my repo into your image.

Interesting, I was just going by the Hardkernel site.

http://com.odroid.com/sigong/nf_file_bo ... =ODROID-U3

Guess they need to change it.

Thanks for the correction ;)

Guys just to understand, I see 2 type of img, to understand:

This one is just console?
ubuntu-16.04-mate-odroid-u2u3-20160920.img.xz


This one came with X server?
ubuntu-16.04-mate-odroid-x-20160920.img.xz


If exist without X stuff better for me :D

Thanks.

Both images have X window.
"ubuntu-16.04-mate-odroid-x-20160920.img.xz" is not compatible with U2.
