Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop for Odroid U2 / U3 available

Unread post by IOOI » Sun Mar 10, 2019 9:20 am

Hi there,

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

Hi IOOI,

Thanks for loading up the image!

It's great to see interest people still have in these boards that are relatively "old" by todays tech standards.
I only have a 8 or maybe 16gb sd so I am planning to upgrade from the 16.04 image, but your instructions will probably save me a few hours of noobish mistakes :)

One minor thing I spotted on your github page is the incorrect spelling of "Credential".

Nice to hear! It was not that straight forward as it reads now, lots of trial and error, googling and googling again.
