Ubuntu 20.04 LTS for ODROID-C2 (beta)

Post by kmously » Wed May 13, 2020 4:12 am

If anyone is interested, I have an "experimental" version of Ubuntu 20.04 ready for ODROID C2. The kernel and userland are 64-bit.

It uses the code from the most recent Focal Fossa kernel ( Ubuntu-5.4.0-31.35 ) compiled for ODROID C2. The kernel configuration is based on Armbian's config so some Ubuntu features might be missing.

Interesting. Does anyone know if there are plans for an official Ubuntu 20.04 release? I mean now that the C4 is out I'm kinda not expecting it, but it would still be nice to get a last LTS build to extend the lifetime of the C2

I think I heard odroid mention they were planning 20.04 versions for their boards (not sure if C1's kernel can handle the new systemd), but they usually release them in succession, with about a month in-between. So I'd expect a new image by the end of the summer. But in the mean time you can try do-release-upgrade from 18.04.

If something is missing its because Ubuntu kernel is not there yet ...

Hi igorpec

Can you please clarify what you mean by that? The disk image should have a Ubuntu-odroidc2-1001 kernel installed

Armbian kernel ( for Odroid C2 specifically ) is in better shape than generic Ubuntu kernel. You are missing this https://github.com/armbian/build/tree/m ... 64-current and https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/m ... prepare.sh and Armbian already switched to 5.6.y for this branch since it works better than 5.4.y

Also config was updated not long ago. You can diff to generic Ubuntu and you will notice that nothing vital is missing https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/m ... ent.config
